Modding Resources

Hey, why won't python get the code to recognize? It says it's filled with syntax errors.

Not a modder myself so i'm not gonna be able to make anything but this makes me wonder how much potential this game has as a modding platform. I'm thinking of just how many different sci-fi universes could be brought into the game if someone was dedicated enough. personally i'd love to see starcraft ships duking it out. but then again i literally know nothing about modding so the tools this post gives might not relate to something like that at all.

You might want to look in to Sins of a Solar Empire. So far I've seen the Mass Effect universe, Star Wars universe, Star Trek universe, Halo universe and more modded in to that.

This game has basically no mod support, a very small user base and is under the thumb of Games Workshop, so you're unlikely to ever see anything from different lore.

@measly

GW does not allow non 40k stuff in it. Plus, most other sci-fi would be stuck at escort only fleets save for a flagship.

If you are looking for a similar game, Star Wars has Empire at War which is pretty similar, with more 4x and ground options but less actual ship tactics and abilites.

@everyone

Anyone know which foldel countain that files what determined the uprades requested planet ?

I assumed it was time required for each boarding stacks to be resolved. Never tested it though.

Having trouble with the UnitSchemaOfficial.json, won't encrypt right, I tested with @Skalgrim-Fellaxe mod UnitSchemaOffical.json it worked perfectly. Removed the null at the end before editing, used a tool online, worked with the UnitStatsOfficial.csv no problems but not the Schema. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank Y'all

@thatcrummieguy Im using the program Atom and making sure that its UTF-16LE while editing. That works for me.

@Skalgrim-Fellaxe tried the Atom for the text editing, also used a different Encryptor site and a few other steps but got it working. Thank you for the advice.

Using the script if pretty simple, you just navigate to the folder (in command promt) with the script, give it the encrypt command, file to encrypt, then location to encrypt to.
The main part that seems to trip people up is getting python, pip and the crypto installed (and having the right versions!)

python bfg2.aes encrypt C:\BFG2Mod\UnitSchemaOfficial.json.dec C:\BFG2Mod\UnitSchemaOfficial.json

I have some modding resources on my server if it of help to anyone: https://discord.gg/r2VgFS4

@Dire_Venom Appreciate it, just joined the discord channel will browse through the plethora of info when able. Haven't had any luck with the script, will try to figure python out again when I do a system wipe/restore in a couple of months. Thanks again for the info, I got it figured and loving the little changes I made. Great game and the extra little tweaks we can do with modding makes it even better.

The point is that you don't micro! My ideal game requires little/no micro because it's large scale, with hundreds of units. I like managing divisions and squadrons, not ships. I Watching the stream and seeing you must try, women winter jacket that the devs are perfect and ok with modding resource. I am excited how easy it is or would be to import models.
