Terradine Galaxy by TigerClaw - Version 2.1 

 

Created by AdmiralTigerClaw 

Packaged and Released by Nuclear_Eclipse 

 

############################################################################ 

 

*Warning* - Do not use the Terradine galaxy without the mod enabled, and 

do not use the mod without the Terradine galaxy.  Doing so will cause 

text errors and bugs to occur.  You have been warned! 

 

############################################################################ 

*SCRIPTS* 

*Warning* 

- Read the Readmes involving the included scripts prior to play for understanding of their functions.  

 

- Do not attempt to use any of the Egosoft bonus add-on scripts without reviewing what they do. 

 

- DO NOT EVER install the gunnery crews and Aegis bonus scripts.  Those were designed specifictly for default X2, Terradine's major changes WILL result in problems in this area. 

 

- Be cautious of some of Xai Corps scripts if you choose to download and install them, there ARE some minor conflicts in a few places.  

 

- It is untested whether or not the Xai Corp mobile mining scripts will accidently destroy the trade lane nav becons.  Use this with caution. 

 

- Check for conflicts before using any scripts not included default with Terradine. 

 

- *** - 

If you do not wish to use the hand picked scripts for terradine, you may delete them.  However, terradine REQUIRES three scripts to function correctly. 

 

1: nuke.lib.timer  <----- Required to fix pirates. 

2: !fight.invasion  <---- Required to fix pirates. 

3: galaxy.terradine.initplayership  <---- Required for initial galaxy setup.

ABOUT TERRADINE: 

 

After the first Argon/Khaak conflict, the Powers that Be (Mainly a bunch or 

derranged authors who thought it would be a kick to watch characters suffer 

new plights...) decided to not only reconfigure the gate network, but 

physically MOVE the gates and sectors around a little.  This became known 

as the Great Gate Upheaval, and the new layout of the X2 Universe was 

startlingly different.  

 

The major races now have to contend with a layout known as the Hub and Spoke 

design, more emulating what a realistic trade route between cities on a 

planet would be.  Not only that, but the Authors decided to pull a new trick 

from their hat, and crossed universes.  The result has been named Terradine. 

 

The central system of Argon space is now known as the Argon Federated 

Galactic Union since it unites several human civilizations.  Fifty Earth 

Years later, yet another sector has been discovered on the frontiers of the 

Terradine Galaxy.  However, a strange phenomina was found in this new sector.  

 

Curious, but cautious, the continuous march of Terracorp, now a leading 

industrial agent of Terradine, has asked who would be brave enough to fly 

into this Anomally and see what it does.  A random pilot, you, the player, 

stepped up to the challenge, figuring the reward would be worth it. 

 

And if you got killed, well, so much for the reward.  And thus, a pilot flew 

a lone M5 Argon Discoveror into the heart of Irregular Point 0,1. 

 

############################################################################ 

 

FEATURES: 

 

 - Start with a fully-loaded Argon Discoverer and 50,000cr. 

 

 - Hub and Spoke sector design, with clusters of race owned sectors 

   seperated by stretches of pirate affiliated sectors. 

 

 - Trade Lanes marked by navigation buoys crossing some of the longer routes. 

 

 - Spacedocks and other facilities that act as sink holes for the high end 

   products generated in the galaxy. 

 

 - Interesting sector layouts that vary from place to place. 

 

 - Asteroid Fields, super nebulas, empty sectors. 

 

 - A REAL feeling of open space with gates moved to oddball locations, such 

   as above, below, and off to the sides, as well as farther apart. 

 

 - Along with some reused X2 Sectors, you will find a myriad of over a 

   hundred unique sectors, each with their own names and information. 

 

 - Modified Pirate Invasion behavior to return any ships alive after an hour 

   of raiding back to the nearest Pirate Base to help keep the galaxy clear.  (And your computer running, rather than melting down into a million slagged peices.)

 

############################################################################ 

 

INSTALLATION AND USAGE: 

 

*NOTE* - Please ignore the installation instructions in the combat zone 

         modification readme.  They are unnecessary to install and use the 

         Terradine Galaxy. 

 

*NOTE* - You need to have the 1.4 patch from Egosoft; it is available from 

         their website for all who have registered their game on the forums. 

 

Installation should now be a simple extraction of all files from the .zip 

into the X2 directory.  As long as your unzip program keeps folder names, 

everything should go where it belongs without a hitch. 

 

*The two new sector music tracks will overrwrite the old ones.  Rename the old ones in advance if you want. 

 

Upon starting X2, you will need to click the 'Select Mod Package' button 

and then click on 'terradine-combatzone' then click OK.  Then you may start 

X2 as you would normally.  

 

Once you get to the main menu inside X2, choose 'Start' and then choose 

'New game in a custom galaxy', then choose the 'terradine' galaxy.

 v1.2  May 2nd, 2005 

 

   - (TigerClaw) Minor changes to the galaxy map: 

 

     - Found some map induced bugs with pirate bases in Paranoid space. 

       All the pirate bases were pirate owned, but the ships were paranid, 

       which causes people who were killing the paranid pirate ships to 

       really peave those paranid. 

 

     - Went through the sectors systematically and checked the suns, and 

       got rid of those stupid halo suns in prefference of the real suns.

   - (Nuke) Renamed the mod .cat and .dat files to better suit the mod.

   - (Nuke) Packaged the new terradinemap.jpg from TigerClaw into the mod. 

 

   - (Nuke) Rewrote the readme files to look better / read easier, and 

     have updated information in them.

   - (TigerClaw) Added in the Thalon ship modifications.  Thalon's ships 

     are now available for purchase inside the Terradine galaxy. 

 

   - (Nuke) The first Terradine release offered in two flavors.  One with 

     and one without the music. 

 

   - (Nuke) Cleaned up the installer zip files.  Installation now is a 

     simple extraction of EVERYTHING into the X2 root folder. 

 

 v1.01b  April 29th, 2005 

 

   - (TigerClaw) Small fix to address issues with sector names. 

 

   - (Nuke) Rewrote the scripts that came with Terradine.  Now made into 

     galaxy scripts; the player no longer needs to enable the script editor 

     to see the proper sector names. 

 

 v1.0b  April 29th, 2005 

 

   - (TigerClaw) Initial release 

 

############################################################################ 

 

KNOWN BUGS / ISSUES: 

 

 - FIXED: with version 1.6a, the Pirate Behavior Modification scripts were 

     known to cause issues when capturing pirate  ships.  The scripts would 

     not properly terminate upon capture, and the newly acquired ship would 

     promptly return 'home' to a pirate base, no matter the commands given 

     to it by the player.  The script has been recalled for the time being 

     until a proper fix can be worked up for the next release. 

 

 - FIXED: Imperator II unable to dock fighters and freighters as it should. 

 

 - FIXED: Pirate ships accumulating in empty sectors on invasion routines. 

     They should be set to return to the nearest pirate base after an hour 

     in the target sector.  NOTE:  In order to remove this feature for 

     normal X2 games, you must rename the included !fight.invasion.pck.old 

     and remove the '.old' from the file name.  This is a copy of the 

     original pirate behavior, although the new behaviors should be 

     compatible with normal X2 games as well as with Terradine. 

    *FIXED* 

 

 - FIXED: Split stations owning Pirate ships instead of Split ships. 

 

 - FIXED: 'Irregular Point 0,1' with NVidia video cards 

     This sector has known issues with NVidia brand video cards.  All 

     textures are rendered completely white.  Cause is thought to be the 

     placement of two suns on top of each other.  A fix is in the works.
