Question about research

Post by EliphasTheInheritor »

Hello fellow modders, is there a way to easily remove some research projects?

For example, I wanna remove wave, torpedo, area, missile and rail gun weapons. It's a bit hard even with the modding tool because I still have to see the table with all the projects after I remove one at the time.

The thing is there's references to research projects in the same file (parents) and also potentially in the race files if you have scripted research of any kind.

That said, I'd open up the tech tree viewer on whatever row I wanted to get rid of and screen-shot it, then use that as a reference to remove them, starting at the end of the row and working your way back towards the start. That way you know the projects you're deleting won't be parents to other projects on the same row.
