[Tool] Changeling - X3TC Editor and Change Manager [v2.8 - Sa-23-Apr-2011]

Rate this Entry
I started working on a Tool to aid with the editing of the configuration file for LitCube's EES but have since decided to evolved it into a full Change Manager for X3:TC. It will retain it's EES functionality but as time goes on it will become more capable and eventually the intent is it will permit the easy merging of mod content. You can track the development of this tool here on the Egosoft forums. See here on this site for downloads relating to this tool.

IMPORTANT: Changeling requires v4 of Microsoft's .NET Framework.



Current features are:-
  • Import/Export the EES configuration XML file (including support for Laser/Missile characteristics on page 60000)
    • NOTE: Exported Priority lists now start at 1 and can include upto 1000 entries
  • Import/Export the MARS v4.95 configuration XML file
    • NOTE: Only basic testing done (not tested in game)
  • Load/Save the Changeling session
  • Use multi-select drag-and-drop to re-order Lasers/Missiles to match TLasers and cascade resulting changes to priority lists
