Hello ive been tinkering with components and research to create my own bits and pieces in game.
However i ahve run into a stumbling block.
Im trying to create an armour that i can upgrade in a similar way to the race specific weapons/reactors/shields etc.
BUT!
When i try and run the game with these entries, it crashes unless i remove everything but the initial research entry.
Does anyone have any ideas? is this even possible? or is armour 1 unit only and non upgradable?
heres my data:

COMPONENTS.TXT:

140, Diamond Armour, 31, 0, , 1, 1, 0, 40, 7, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 17, 10, 11, 10, 12, 10,

Hi aZmoDen

I think you're missing the extra 'Value' entries in the Component Improvement lines. You need to specify all entries from Value1 through Value7, even if you only modify some of them.

So your first Component Improvement line in Research.txt would look like the following:
COMPONENT IMPROVEMENTS ;140, 1, 60, 8, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,
