> Your robotic troop foundry facility (facilities.txt) claims (not-checked) to produce troops at one quarter (1/4th) (as opposed to the vanilla one third (1/3)) maintenance cost. This is not mentioned in the readme or any of the versions updates. I assume this is a personal modification of your own that snuck in and is unmentioned.
> Your planetary shield facility (facilities.txt) has 2 altered value's, I don't know what they mean, I hope you can elaborate on this? I am curious...I suspect another personal modification that is unmentioned.
> Your bombers (fighters.txt in BaconWorld) actually do 3x more damage than vanilla versions this is unmentioned in the changes log. Your fighters have a special setting that increases their damage against their fellow bombers by an adjustable setting in your baconsettings which impacts the vanilla versions which is cool as it is currently set to default at 3x making them fair in relation to the bombers. However it is not mentioned that bombers do 3x more damage in baconworld...(I have not tested this but this is what I assume from checking and comparing the txt files)
> What exactly did you change in the mining rate upgrades? (research.txt) You seem to have changed a value but I have no idea what this value actually does...could you care to explain what you changed in the mining rate? The mining rate values seem unchanged...so what did you alter?
> The CharacterNames.txt (BaconWorld) adds extra names for humanoid characters ''only'' however I recommend you delete this file for future downloads so that the total download size stays small and no unnecessary clutter of files is created since it is an unmentioned change/addition. This will help modders integrate your mod more easily into other projects without getting confused. I assume this was something you enjoyed personally, however for an external download it just clutters up the file with an unmentioned slight alteration.
> Your (BaconWorld) gametext.txt is completely unchanged from the original vanilla, it is not necessary to add this file to the download. Or am I mistaken and you did change something? Notepad ++ compare plugin did not detect any changes at all.
Hope this helps you a bit.
I didn't make a change to robotic foundry, as you suspected. However, even my facilities.txt in the main folder mentions 1/4th cost. As far as I know, that is the vanilla text.
The only change I have in the facilities.txt file is for the terraforming facility. Everything else shows the same as vanilla. Unless I modded my vanilla a long time ago and forgot about it, there are no other changes.
Bombers do have x3 damage. I mention increasing their damage to compensate for the fact that they have limited ammo. Of course, you are free to set them any way you like.
The characterNames.txt is 8k so download times are measured in milliseconds. I added extra names because the fighter aces use up quite a few names and you start getting repeats pretty quickly. I intended to do it for all racial families but I never got around to it.
These days I assume most people are using my mod in conjunction with other mods (myself included) so I think most people aren't using the files in the BaconWorld folder.
Thanks for your feedback.
Hmm... Seems to work when I have star gravity well on but not when I have it off. I'm at a loss.
Not sure what you meant by altered start up screen unless you refer to the small "Bacon Mod by Roger Bacon" popup.
He means the mod's ability to have a custom background screen for the main menu. If you put a file called "customBackgroundImage.jpg" in your [modName]\Images folder you will get a custom background.
