Thank you very much. I've got a Teladi game going at the moment. I'll carry on and untill I have enough money to by a shipyard and see if it then is able to produce ships.
- The best way to ensure correct station functionality is to cheat the station into a TL, then build it as normal.
- XTC Player Owned Shipyards are actually classed as 'Docks' not 'Shipyards', so if cheating one in you need to filter the selection by 'Docks' to get the production lines.
If I start a new Paranid game, I also have nothing show up in production lines when the PHQ is built.
I then fired up my latest save - Boron start with just under a day and a half on the clock. If I cheat myself a TL, add shipyard and build it, then production lines show up.
However, if I start a new Boron game, cheat myself the same TL with the same Shipyard, production lines don't show up wen it's built.
So, perhaps there is some other element involved, maybe game time, credits or some other factor.
Note that you should always save & re-load a newly started game to let all scripts - including shipyard management scripts - to initialize. So, if you built the phq before doing that save-reload, then it probably won't be recognized. So.. that might account for the issues seen in fresh-started games.
In normal game play this situation is highly unlikely to arise, as the chances of not saving/reloading before you're in a position to buy a shipyard is minimal. Paranid start where you're given a PHQ increases the chances greatly.
It isn't a good idea to install into 'program files' folder as Windows 7/Vista have a programs data folder that keeps backups of all the programs you install in the programs folder. When you uninstall and then re-install Windows will then copy back the files from it's data folder, causing some problems with TC and MODs. I would suggest unistalling TC from the programs folder and do a clean installation in another location, then patch to 3.1 and install XTC 1.2a and try it then. Or you could wait until 2.0 is released, which should be around the end of Feb. I would still suggest re-installing TC in another location though.
