With the trading computer lag fixed I'm working on updating the Network mod again.

I would like to add the Benedict missions to this adventure but can't find an easy way to do it.

Copying all the Benedict xml modules into the mod and adding the module filenames works but a simpler way would be nice. Especially as all the Heretic and Huaramarca missions need this done as well.

These files are defined (correct jargon?) in StarsOfThePilgrim.xml
I had the idea of extending the StarsOfThePilgrim adventure to get access to them but it doesn't work.

Code: Select all

Does anyone know if there is a simpler way of accessing these missions/files? Or does some other code stop them from appearing in other adventures?
This could also be used to add all the missions to the "A Greater Adventure" and "Director's Cut" adventures which also have all the standard SOTP systems in them.

If The Network is an adventure itself, probably extending another adventure doesn't work. If it's an extension, I would think that extending SotP would work, but might include things you don't want or prevent you from creating the topology you want. (I don't know much about that.) I'm not sure if extensions and adventures can inherit, but you could try it. If it's an adventure, I think including this in the adventure type should work:

Code: Select all

	<Module filename="Benedict00.xml"/>
	<Module filename="Benedict01.xml"/>
	<Module filename="Benedict02.xml"/>
	<Module filename="Benedict03.xml"/>
	<Module filename="Benedict04.xml"/>
	<Module filename="Benedict05.xml"/>
	<Module filename="Benedict05A.xml"/>
	<Module filename="Benedict06.xml"/>
	<Module filename="Benedict07.xml"/>
	<Module filename="Benedict08.xml"/>
	<Module filename="BenedictStoryArc.xml"/>
Also, note that they're only available from Sisters stations in the starting system.
