liberating tbl-spaces
I recently ran into some serious problems with the ship limit when I tried to get my glowmaped EA Nova into a TBP-mod...
appearently I've pushed the ship limit too far...
now I need a way to "liberate" place in ships.tbl and its tbms WITHOUT violating the TBP mod-policy....

Re: liberating tbl-spaces
either that or something is rotten in my mod.ini here - and since I'm doing mod.inis for sometime now without problems....

Re: liberating tbl-spaces
You are running the RC2 inferno correct?  What's your command line and mod.ini look like?  And of course you have checked for typos in ship types. 
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

uhm no - I've not been keeping up with anykind of FS_Open build recently...

as for mod.ini
Code: [Select]
[launcher]
image255x112 = TBP.bmp; placebolder must create logo before release
infotext     = ; TEXT
website      = ; must fill before release
forum        = ; must fill before release

[multimod]
secondrylist = HP_Auroras,Recolored_Civs,FREDer_package

ps. I used a modified ships.tbl and it worked - but that violates the modding-policy

Re: liberating tbl-spaces
One thing I'm wondering is if it's hitting a length restriction on the mod line.  Get the 3.6.10 RC2 build and run the debug inferno build.  Better yet grab Zathras since it's in there.  Post the fs2_open.log.  Also is it possible for you to email me the modded ships and table entries for them or at least the table entries?  If there is a problem I'd like to find out sooner then later.
