"Glad to hear it's working! Was it the .dll issue, or did you move to the legacy/1.0 version?"

I went to the legacy version.

I am enjoying the flavor it adds very much.

Any chance you could list how long someone served. I would really like to follow the careers of my orginal 8.

Re: [STAT TRACKING] Soldier Diaries 1.0: Feedback on Hellraiser Medal
« Reply #481 on: November 02, 2014, 04:43:48 pm »
@Shoes:

I just wanted to note that the Hellraiser Medal, as it currently stands, will be extremely difficulty to obtain. 

Code: [Select]
  - type: STR_MEDAL_HELLRAISER_MEDAL_NAME
    description: STR_MEDAL_HELLRAISER_MEDAL_DESCRIPTION
    sprite: 11
    criteria:
      killsWithCriteriaCareer: [5, 10, 15, 15, 15, 15, 20, 20, 20, 20]
    killCriteria:
      -
        1: ["DT_IN", "FACTION_HOSTILE", "STATUS_DEAD"]

As it currently works, this only tracks an instantaneous kill with DT_IN, so any of the enemies that expire on subsequent turns are not tracked.  i.e. the soldier who caught them on fire with the incendiary weapon, doesn't get credit for the kill when the enemy dies later.  I just completed a mission where I killed 4 enemies with fire, and one with a proxie, and only the proxie was credited to anyone.

I don't know if its possible to get it working with code to track that, but I thought I'd pass the feedback along. :)

In other news, I've had some other folks downloading the Commendations UFOPedia mod, and making LPs and livestreams with it, so your mod is getting some great exposure. :)

Cheers, Ivan :D

The problem with "death by being on fire" is that I would need to write up some code so the game remembers who set that guy on fire. At the time, I didn't feel like doing that ;p

That's some good news about your mod, cool!

Any chance you can make a medal for using a medikit?

Good call, that should definitely be in there. Could probably make one medal for each time of the meds that kit has, and award it for how often it was used.

When my IRL work load dies down, I'll definitely take a look!

Thanks Shoes.

I'm one of those players who gives everyone a medkit.

Congrats?

Any chance you can medals for if the medkit is used on a civilian or an alien?



One other thing, I have commendations turned on, but they don't show up anymore. I recently tried installing a nightly to fix no psi strength improvement, I again I had to go back to version 1.0. Shortly after making the change I notice I wasn't getting medal updates.

I briefly tried starting a new game and aborted from my 1st fight, no medals and no luck.

If you are installing nightlies, you are over writing the custom .exe file that the Soldier Diaries / Commendations mod relies, on.  You can have one but not the other.   That said, Shoes usually has a couple versions of the mod available.  One at the legacy 1.0 version (which is what I'm using), and another, more recent based on a somewhat recent nightly.  I think its been a month or more since he updated the recent version.  If that is what you are using, please ignore this explanation as I must have misunderstood your statement.

Yeah, you can't install over my .exe without losing the commendations code.

A medpack medal should be easy to implement; calculate how many points of X Y or Z was recovered, track and save that. Could be a map element so I could assign a string for the type of unit it was, so you can track civilian heals and alien heals and soldier heals. I might not do that however, because I don't think anyone ever heals non-soldiers for good reason.

Actually, I've healed both aliens and civilian. To prevent a stunned gazer from dying (that was cruel, he did die at the base... but not after he revealed his secrets!), and a civilian that had been clipped by an explosion (not that they survive often though..)

If it's not much more work, it could be a neat little surprise (and even an occasion for a little humour: Alien Hugger Award?)

Only purple and crimson heart being awarded, but none of the other medals. Any advice?

Well that's interesting ;p I would say re-download the ruleset or something. I can't imagine any sort of "new" bug were only part of the medals are commended.

Just for the record, Commendations is still working pretty well for me.   The only unusual occurrence recently was a mission where 5 soldier got the Order of the Hammer, despite never encountering more than two races.

Legacy 1.0 version.
