Thanks! Your updates are always welcome.

One question: I tried several positions, tabs and indents on the craftinventorytile entry in the rul file, but nothing seems to register.
Could you please post an example entry?

Thanks!

Odd, that's what I tried first and it didn't work.

Oh, wait, do I have to edit the original Piratez.rul file, I remember that editing the Bonaventura worked only then. Gonna test that and a custom addon rul file.

REPORT: yes, it only works when editing the original Piratez.rul file.

A nice location for the Ventura is behind that small door on the level that leads to the roof.

Code: [Select]
    craftInventoryTile: [6, 4, 2]

For some reason, you can't just mod the Bonny. I found that out when trying to change the unit deployment scheme. You have to use "delete: STR_VENTURA", then paste the entry as it was in the mod to redefine it, with your new values in.

Yes, of course, I forgot that possibility for a moment.  :-[
It's also much safer doing the change that way.

Yes, but a bit of a pain to update.. I don't understand why a later mod can't mod the Bonny, but it sort of works this way.

You can change the "deployment" and "craftInventoryTile" attributes of any craft only if your mod contains also the "battlescapeTerrainData" attribute... not exactly sure why, but it's implemented like this.

Ah! Cool! So I don't need to include all the other stats (or delete the original!). That makes updating much easier, since the terrain shouldn't change very often. Thanks for the info!

Not sure if this is important, but when I change the bonny that way^ the game CTDs when trying to edit the loadout in the Battle Generator. Interestingly when I do not try to edit the loadout and skip directly to launch, it works...

I can't test atm if it works in the game itself, as I sold the bonny and use other crafts.

Kindly remind me what keyboard button to press to see if my shot missed or hit an enemy.

Watching your playthrough on YT it occurred to me that some people might gain from having the heading in the Shipping-XY window represented as an arrow in addition to the "North-West" or whatever it is.
It might take a little thought so the old look would be preserved.

Maybe in the upper right corner of the window?

Is it possible to make mouse scroll responsible for switching through equipment pages (before a mission) ? :)

What was the key that you used to empty your craft from all the equipment ?
