Re: Standalone/Linux: Can't start Pandora

I can confirm that the problem is solved with 1.6.5. :)

Re: 14 new, but well-known factions for Pandora

My first test showed that it works fine. :)
After analyzing the changed files of patch 1.6.5, I didn't find any changes which would interfere with the mod. Everything is ok!

Standalone/Linux: Can't start Pandora

Hi there, I just tried to play Pandora with EoN (the non-Steam version) on my Debian 8 x64 laptop. So I decompressed the Pandora EoN 1.50 x64 archive and started it with Binaries/Pandora. It fetched the update to 1.64 from 2015-12-21, but after that, I can't start the game itself. I have attached th...

Re: 14 new, but well-known factions for Pandora

I just finished the update to version 2.4 which contains changes from the last beta patch for Pandora from 2015-12-21. There are some minor additional graphical fixes which probably nobody will notice.

As always, you can find the download at: http://blubb.najut.org/pandora/

Re: 14 new, but well-known factions for Pandora

There were way fewer technologies and buildings in SMAC than in Pandora, so disabling Pandora's techs and buildings and only using the SMAC ones results in a quite... empty game. This looked really not quite enjoyable. So my current idea is to pick some special buildings and their techs out of SMAC'...

14 new, but well-known factions for Pandora

If you need more factions, I can offer you 14 not-so-new ( :lol: ) factions for Pandora. The ones of you who played a certain game which was released in 1999 will know them. Without further ado, here are the 14 SMACX factions: http://blubb.najut.org/pandora/ Please post your comments or suggestions ...

Re: Announcement: Your chance to affect the future of Pandor

I see two main points in improving Pandora: * UI enhancements (mainly the size) * introducing random events UI enhancements: Is there a way to change the size of the game's UI (button size, dialog box size and font size (the last one is already editable from the XML files, but this only of limited u...

Re: Arming a Former

You can enable weapons to be used with formers. Please have a look at the attached file. Copy it to Data\World\Weapons in your mod folder and you are now able to place a L-15 Lance cannon into your former chassis.

Re: Creating a building: How to change tile production?

@SephiRok: So you mean that after the next (beta) patch it will be possible to define a building that, for example, improves food production of forest tiles the city has access to? @mrowka: This is an interesting procedure you found. ;) But for now I think it may be a more feasible way to increase t...

How to play a sound file when a technology is researched?

Is there a way to play a certain sound file when a certain technology is researched? My idea was to put an OGG file to "Data\Audio\Languages\{English,German}\name_of_technology.ogg", but this isn't doing anything. So is there a way?

You must add the description of your building to "Data\Core\Languages\{English,German}\Buildings.xml".

Re: XML schema files wanted

Ok, thanks for the info! :)

Edit: Is it possible that the game plays a research-specific sound file if a research is developed?

Re: XML schema files wanted

Ok, I see that. My question targeted the attribute "reward" on the tag <technology> - my first impression was that it has something to do with the bonus the player gets when researching that specific technology. But what exactly is this attribute doing?

Re: XML schema files wanted

To all other Pandora users: This means that you will have a Alpha Centauri remake very soon! Oo that sounds interesting. Is it just a cosmetic mode with the name and image of SMAC leaders or are you also modifying the factions starting bonus? Well the 14 factions from AC are already done and playab...
