A number of files containing GalCiv 2 in-game text, edited for grammar, readability, consistency, and logic.
With these files: small hulls are no longer "ideal for a heavy figher," you no longer equip your ships with "qauntum driver II," UP votes display as changes/week (rather than /month), large and huge hulls are presented with their correct logistics values, and much more.
A total of 10 files (out of a total 18) are corrected:
TechTree, GC2_Ships, InvTactics, Political Parties, Anomalies, Starbase Modules, GC2_Types, Planet Improvements, Events, UP Issues.
Four files (MapRaceInfo, ResourceTypes, CustomPlanets, and AbilityBonuses) are fine as is. RaceConfig is fine, and probably shouldn't be messed with (by me).
The only .xml files left to edit are three big ones: Flavor Text, GC2_Conversations, and GC2_Hints. I hope to tackle the first two pretty soon.
Could you please post the version that this applies to? For instance, if Stardock edits the xml files in a later version, they would be over-written.
Appears to work fine and does rectify a lot of the gramatical errors in the game!
Many thanks for this!
I submitted it and it seems to be working now.
Seen as the link is still broken can you please email them to me
If you have a second please check out the user made mods thread (stickied) and see if you would like to participate to the growing collection.
Darth Griffin, they absolutely should be - they don't alter the rules in any way.
DWellsian are your changes ok to use in Metaverse games?
Rendermad, I emailed Stardock about the problem, but I haven't heard back from them yet (it hasn't been very long).
Since the file size is pretty small I would be happy to email it to you directly.
Looks good, but when trying to download I get en 'Error' page. Is there another place to download from?
