(Enquiry) Score system changes
« on: December 09, 2014, 02:40:21 pm »
Hi all, I apologize if this is indeed in the incorrect section.

I've tried looking through the Rulesets. But came up with nothing.

I was wondering if it is indeed possible to alter the score system.

Like I wanted to alter the leeway you are given in regards to negative scores. I wanted to lower them and make it a lot more pressuring to the player to maintain a good score.

Is this at all possible via Rulesets or is this something I would need to use the Open source and compile my own variant with my changes?

Thanks in Advance.

you do that by selecting a difficulty level. you can alter your saved game difficulty to something higher than 4 (superhuman) and it will acheive what you're aiming for.

I wish to alter the scores themselves without changing a save game difficulty.

It's for my own little minimod. I just wish to make it so that instead of 2-3 months of -500 on Superhuman. I wish to change that to -250 for superhuman.

Is this at all possible.

no.

you might try increasing the score for alien mission successes, or lower the score gains from downing UFOs, but the yardstick by which you are measured is tied directly to the difficulty multiplier.

When I saw this post I upped the difficulty to level 5 on my current game for a bigger end game challenge, three questions tho. Does the number of aliens per mission increase beyond superhuman level? Is there any upper limit to the the difficulty level u can edit your saved game to as upon testing last night level 20 seems to work ok, tho I only had a look at a few of the alien stats in debug mode. And finally are stats limited to 255, as in the vanilla game, no matter what difficulty level is set. I'm not sure on this as my Xcom Enforcer HWP's have a Psi Str of 300.

nah, at superhuman you get the maximum number of aliens, beyond that they just get higher stats.
