  1. Hi there! Just bumping the topic to let you know I've rewritten the first post entirely. No more pictures; just plain text code blocks for easier copy-pasting (and also to ensure the images don't get deleted over time like with the previous version... yuck!). Furthermore, slightly edited some instructions for clarity, and added my own music.lua to the end of the first post in case you want/need to copy it over in its entirety for whatever reason or just like seeing a complete example. There's also a downloadable attachment. See the first post of the topic!
  2. No, you are correct. You can, however, change the position of the grid vertically and pan around -- check the keyboard shortcuts noted at the bottom of your screen for help.
  3. Hey! I suggest Bubbet's Ranks Mod. It does everything Welcome Mail would have done, and more.
  4. Hey there, just to follow up on this: after a suggestion by Ravenis on Discord, I've managed to get it working. The solution was to add the --public 1 --listed 1 arguments to the startup script. I would like to add how weird it is that the INI file had these arguments set to true already, and the CMD prompt and server log read-outs all said that "yes, we are public and listed", yet it appears to be lying about that unless you also specify it in the startup script itself. A little arcane. But I have a working server now. Hope this helps someone else along the way.
  5. I have since figured out that I was putting in the wrong IP for direct IP connect. That now works. The server still doesn't display on the public server list, though.
  6. Hey guys, This question must have been asked a thousand times before... Trying to create a server so I can test my multiplayer mods on it, and I'm running into issues. I'm on Windows, and followed all the Wiki steps. I forwarded the correct ports (27000 - UDP & TCP; 27003 - UDP; 27020 - UDP; 27021 - UDP -- and even tried forwarding all of them on both TCP and UDP), poked holes in my Firewall, set listed=true in the server.ini. Tried the --use-steam-networking 1 command line argument as well. I can see it on the public server list if I log onto the game on the same machine it's running on, but can't see it if I log onto the game (on another Steam account) on a different computer. If I try to direct connect through IP, it says the server is unreachable. I do not have Antivirus blocking me or anything else, and I'm not running through a VPN. I've pretty much exhausted all Google search results and I'm a bit at a loss. Any ideas? Thanks a lot, Shrooblord
  7. I'm having exactly the same problem. Running on Windows, followed all the Wiki steps. Forwarded the correct ports, poked holes in my Firewall, set listed=true in the server.ini. Tried the --use-steam-networking 1 command line argument as well. I can see it on the public server list if I log onto the game on the same machine it's running on, but can't see it if I log onto the game (on another Steam account) on a different computer.
  8. I'm trying to use the forceDock() function, but its final two arguments, which should indicate the dockee's look and up vectors, don't seem to do anything, no matter what sort of matrix I use. I'm using console print-outs to confirm that the matrices themselves are accurate, but the dockee simply never rotates. It always uses the parent's look and up vectors, as if I entered nil for those final two arguments. Is that expected behaviour? If not, could you please look into this? I have a great mod in the making (some nice docking mechanics!), but it's stopped totally dead in its tracks because of this behaviour. ==== Koonschi reported that this is already possible / more workable if you use strings for the axes you want your dockees to align to, eg. "x", "-z". I have found it quite tricky to find the right combinations of vectors (which are in the parent's LOCAL SPACE!) to get the orientation I need, as many of the ones I expect to function given the colours of the axes reported in Build Mode as well as console read-outs of Block positions, don't behave to expectations, but with some fiddling of letters you can find them. I reserve the right to hide the fact I may just be terrible at vector Maths. šŸ˜‰
  9. Aw dude I'm so happy with all of these. Good stuff!!
  10. Hey Boxel, Love the look of the new forum! So clean. Very modern. I do miss the "top posters" column -- my bragging rights!! x) Looking forward to seeing how the suggestions voting system will pan out. Hope it helps you filter through what we as a community care about most. Can't wait to see what comes in the new update. Each one is a charm. Keep being awesome, Shroob
  11. THIS IS AN ARCHIVE OF THE OLD INSTRUCTIONS. If for some reason you are running an ancient version of Avorion between version 0.21-1.0, read on: ---- Hey gang, Avorion recently got an overhaul to its Music Player. It now builds a playlist of tracks based on "moods", and chooses tracks that are appropriate for that Sector based on how many Stations are left alive there, how many Wreckages are there, whether the Sector is neutral, hostile, or friendly to you, whether it's completely empty, etc. etc. Basically, you no longer have a list of random tracks, but tracks that feel "appropriate" for that environment. [spoiler=introduction]For example, there's the collection of TrackCollection.All(), one for TrackCollection.Happy(), one for TrackCollection.Neutral(), TrackCollection.Desolate() etc. Also there's this one TrackCollection.HappyNoParticle() which is literally what it sounds like: the collection from TrackCollection.Happy() minus Particle.ogg. RIP There's also this helpful line: -- modders: reserve track numbers 15 - 1000 for additional future music which is a pointer that you should start using tracks with IDs 1001 and up to avoid conflicts with future Avorion updates. What does this mean for all of you out there who had a vast library of music added into the game? Well, I am one of them (3 GB of music to be precise), so let me walk you through the steps of making your music show up in game again. In my case, it's time to categorise 3 GB worth of music into "moods"... ^^" [NOTE:] For all directories, move into your Avorion Steam installation directory first: YourSteamFolder/(...)/Avorion/, typically something like C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Avorion\. All music files need to be in .OGG format, or Avorion will not play them. Main Menu Background / Ambient Tracks Combat Tracks Boss Tracks ---------------- Have fun modding your game, and listening to some cool tunes! Shrooblord P.S. Note that the file paths described above can be any subdirectory of the Steam Avorion installation path you want! This means that if you package a mod with, for example, a cool new Boss to fight, you can give it custom music that sits in its own folder separate from the data/music folder, so that you don't even have to tell your users to drag the file into the appropriate folder; just "plug 'n play" and there you go! This system means adapting, a little, but it is more flexible than the old one, and you as a modder (or user) have more control. Excellent~!
  12. Just to confirm for all y'all 1.0 players: this still works! I just made a mod for the Workshop using the new modding system, but the basic fundamentals of this are still the same. To make it friendlier towards other modders, and to allow Boxel to add new music without your mod overwriting the vanilla file so that their new music doesn't show up, I suggest adding to the tables rather than straight-up replacing them. You know how it is, using the new modding techniques outlined in the Wiki. I'll edit the first post soon with new instructions. There's actually two very friendly ease-of-use functions at the very end of music.lua that seem to be built specifically so we can insert new tracks into the tables quickly. It's almost like they built that thing with us modders in mind...! ;)
  13. Ooohhh it's in Game Settings rather than Graphics Settings. Thanks a lot! Now I can play my favourite game again.
  14. Hey, The screen shake effect when your activate the Booster is making me nauseous. This is unfortunate, because I spend a lot of my time in this game boosting around, and actively don't want to play the game anymore if it's making me feel sick. Could you please expose an option for it in the Graphics menu to either set its strength, or disable it outright? Thanks a lot. Shroob
  15. Oh, strange. I could've sworn I was unable to use Factories as well. I'll re-check.
