Changing the tech room info
I'm talking about the info bits, like about the Great War, rather than the ships bit.  I'm sure I know this is possible, but how difficult is it and are there loads of problems?  Can you actually add items or do you have to replace them.

Actually, what about changing he ships part as well?

Okay, I know this isn't particularly new stuff, but I'm planning on swapping pretty much everything in there if possible.

It's all there in the *.tbl files, and it's in text so it easy to edit, whether you can change the movies played I don't know.

Look in the species.tbl and you can change the movies too, as it lists the filename.

All the ships info is in the ships.tbl, weapons descriptions are in the weapons.tbl .

Bear in mind that a *.tbl file cant exceed 380 kb, most of this is taken up by the text descriptions.

Thanks, I knew it was the .tbl stuff but I was sure there were problems to do with what order you put things in or something.

The problem is to get it to show up properly.

What happens to it?

I'd better just have an experiment.
