Modding to get all Codex options.
« on: April 08, 2019, 04:03:12 pm »
Before I start a new game for realz I would like to test all the codex options before I really go for it. How do I do that with my current save file? Thanks!

Edit your savegame with any text editor and change value in lines:
      STR_TINY_DRILL: 1
      STR_MENACING_HULL: 1

to
      STR_TINY_DRILL: 4
      STR_MENACING_HULL: 4

This will give you 4 Tiny drills and hulls, so you can use each on a different codex.

..so easy, so damn easy.. ;D :p

(..or, eventuallly even more, instead of "4" write there any bigger number.. (for example "8" , so you get, if i´m correct, 2 or 4 from each those "speacial weapons, and extra, elite, top stuffs.. )

You probably shouldn't play ironman, especially if you're trying to do something that's probably going to cause extra bugs.

..but arent they (at least 2 of them) "mutually exclusive" ? ?!

( ~~ if you get the one Codex, you cant get some other, specifically.. )

yu get .."Red, --~~> cant get Green, ..and so on..

Yes, they disable one another. Dioxine seems to be keen on "choices and consequences". Still trivial to mod away.

Open piratez.rul in text editor
Search for codex projects (- name: STR_ CODEX_ GOLD etc.)
Delete references to other codides in "disables:" section of the entry

I never tested it but I am fairly sure it should work. If it doesn’t chekc dependencies. You can even add the reference top otehr codices under "getOneFree:" section, this should lock you to single Menace class but give you access to all the voodoo.

Do I have to edit anything for research items that need things like "anything but red" etc?

No. Those techs are (as of now) only there to make the dependency trees more readable.
