If I include "&unidHumanSpaceLibrary;", I am unable to override playerships. The game ignores any overriding code. Test mod below.

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE TranscendenceExtension>

<TranscendenceExtension UNID="0xd9120999"
	name="BUG: Can't Override Wolfen or Other Playerships"

; Once I include this library, this mod does not work!

Good catch! This turned out to be a problem with the compatibility library, which was getting loaded AFTER your extension (and thus overriding your ships). I've fixed this in 1.6 Beta 3, but I think I have a temporary work-around:

1. Run in debug mode.
2. When creating a new game, uncheck all extensions that use an API <26. In particular, the soundtrack extension (and Osaka) use an old API (and thus pull in the compatibility extension).

But as I said, this will be fixed in Beta 3.
