|0022136||AI War 2||[All Projects] Bug - Other||Nov 8, 2019 6:01 pm||Dec 27, 2019 4:35 pm|
|Product Version||1.007 The Player/AI Arms Race Intensifies|
|Fixed in Version||BETA 1.1 So Much Stuff We Can't Even, But More Is Still Coming|
|Summary||0022136: Modloader isn't overriding existing entries with is_partial|
|Description||When using is_partial, the modloader is supposed to override the existing entry's data with the new data. It is not doing this. It is instead appending the new data to the end of the entry. This is causing duplicates.|
For example, trying to change the parasitic starting fleet's mugger line size from 4 to 2 instead creates a new mugger line with 2 ships.
This results in the fleet now having a line of 4, AND a line of 2 muggers.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||So, it apparently needs to be is_partial_record="true" for that to work. Does it work when it's that wording?|
Yes, that is what I used and it did not work. Here is the file:
CMP_StartingFleetDesigns.xml (6,000 bytes)
Related to this, but not exactly this:
* Both ai_ship_group_membership and fleet_membership now properly adjust the existing membership when there is a duplicate entry entered for them (from a mod or whatever else) linking a given ship type to a given template or group. It now adjusts the weight and so on in the template or group, rather than adding a duplicate entry.
** Note that if you change the category for a template, it will assume you mean it to be a duplicate and will add that accordingly. There really should never be any valid reason to mod the category of a ship, but if you must then you can just 0 out the min and max of the old one maybe?
Thanks! The mod that you posted the xml for here now works as you would expect.
* Creating a mod to replace or redefine parts of the fleet design templates (like the starting fleets) now works properly rather than creating duplicate entries or extra counts or both.
** Note that if you choose to change the category of ships from HERE, that will work fine. You just can't change categories of fleet template items from within the game entity side.
** Also please note that this change now prevents you from having duplicate lines of the exact same type of ship in a starting fleet. So something with two lines of fusion bombers would not work anymore, for instance, even with no mods in play, and would just take the count of the last fusion bomber entry and use that.
*** This doesn't stop you from using multiple duplicate ship lines in-game of course, but it does stop it in the starting fleet designs, none of which (that are still active) were using that function anyhow.
