Recently someone asked on Steam about EP mods....and I had a rather hard time answering. So that people have a bit of an easier time finding mods that work with the EP campaign, I'm inviting mod-writers to post here if they've got a mod that works with the Eternity Port adventure (IE: Is not exclusive to SOTP, or is designed specifically for EP). Please include a URL to your release thread (or download page if you don't run a thread. Just note that it's a download link if you do that though, please) I'll update the OP with a list as we go along, assuming people pipe up with some examples!



To start off, Shrike's Mines and Missiles ++ is fully compatible with Eternity Port to the best of my knowledge.

 Technically, everything of mine is compatible with Eternity Port. That said, Interior Design is really only relevant if players have a modded playership with interior, the Utility Pack doesn’t add anything particularly useful to actual gameplay, and the paradoxInfinity playership from Overkill is not available in Eternity Port. Furthermore, using Overkill in Eternity Port at all is extremely risky due to the very real possibility of a Goron Swift winding up with a plasma cascade blaster — yes, I have seen it, and it is not pretty.

Short term fix for players and modders who want to use custom playerships in EP: add this in the "Shipclass" section of playership XML;

Code: Select all

attributes=			"00900000_PlayerShip"
characterClass=		"&unidCDMMercenaryClass;"
This should replace "00200000_PlayerShip" and "&unidPilgrimClass;" respectively.

EDIT: You also need to put this in "PlayerSettings" section

Code: Select all

startingSystem=		"Kibo"
This should, of course, replace "Eridani" or "Tau Ceti". Sorry if this gave you trouble.

I'm actually the OP that Shrike mentioned and Your 'new ship' mod isn't working for me in EP. I downloaded it from

http://xelerus.de/index.php?s=mod&id=1376

Which I got from https://forums.kronosaur.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=6422


I'm also not confident at ALL what it is that Xephyr is saying to do. the extent of my mod creation experience is when I once changed the amount of hp, mana and stamina I received at each level up in Skyrim.

EDIT: I went into the AE-0001-ships.xml and I'm pretty sure I followed Xephyr's instructions, but the ships mod still isn't working for me.

EDIT: Ok, I'm an idiot... I made the changes to the XML, and then launched the game to test the changes without saving the changes i made to the XML.... *palms face*. It seems to work fine now.

EDIT: sigh... The ships from the ships mod are available in the ship selection screen now, but they only have the option to start in Eridani or tau ceti. Neither of which will allow EP to launch correctly. I'm calling it a night. hopefully people more knowledgeable than me will come to my rescue tomorrow ;)

EDIT: i decided to give it one more whack before bed and I think i finally got it to work. at first I was only changing the playership and shipclass on the ships for the FIRST time they showed up going down the xml. I had stopped once the shipclass stopped saying 'pilgrim' and start being similar to '9RE7DG2VS9'. In order to get it to work properly( so far) I had to change every instance of 00200000 and the 'shipclass' line beneath it.

…Huh. Yeah, just downloaded it, myself, to give it a look, and apparently it does need a minor update. I’ll get that taken care of over the weekend. It used to work, by the way. Thanks for pointing that out. ^.^

WE6 will work in EP and CC.
I had in the back of my mind not to fiddle with EP exclusive stuff. I suppose this is not the case anymore, as all the people on Steam have CC and EP and these people want mods too :)

All ships playable mod coming up for EP ? :)

Most, if not all, of my mods should work for Eternity Port.

Playership Drones v7 (Beta): (OUTDATED!) Acquire and command almost any ship in Stars of the Pilgrim or Eternity Port.
Work in progress... Playership Drones v8: Work just started! Details to come later...

 …Unless I get impatient, in which case I’ll do it about, oh, five minutes ago. Thanks again for mentioning that.

Anyone know of a mod that would allow me to purchase a different ship ingame or perhaps do permanent, hardwired upgrades to the ship?

perhaps an experience system?

Playership Drones lets you buy more ships. It is not finished yet (only an Alpha for now). Eventually, PSD7 (post-Alpha) will support all ships in the game instead of just the normal playerships.

Permanent upgrades? Stuff like targeting program?

sort of like the targeting system, maybe a kind of software system? a certain number of slots available for things like for example:

"the complicated algorithms in this sophisticated bit of coding optimize the power consumption of any non-launcher ship-systems by 25%"
