    I just spent the last 2 days balancing the games guns and making a few other minor changes. There are a few changes I would like to do but don't know how to do at the bottom if someone wants to tell me how. Any feedback is appreciated.

    Desired changes I don't know how to do.
    Started a separate thread for this
    https://empyriononline.com/threads/a-few-things-i-still-dont-know-how-to-do-or-if-i-can.43051/
    It is unlikely there will be any major updates to this file again until I can change some of these things or there are new blocks to balance.

    Allow Small Solar Pannels on CVs (Doesn't work right)
    Increase all constructor objects craft speed. (Hard Coded)
    Change all plants currently growing 1 item to grow 2. (Hard Coded)
    Allow HV medbay on and cloning chambers on SVs (Hard Coded)
    Increase stone drop rate. (Hard Coded)
    Change Small O2 tanks Capacity (Doesn't work right)
    Allow construction of currently unbuildable items. (armors, mods, and NVGs) (Can't get this working and don't know why see linked thread)
    Increase sentry turret turn rate. (Hard Coded)


    I really do need feedback on if everything still feels balanced as I only made minimal changes to construction costs and I don't know if it was enough.

    Use the file in this post I didn't know how to attach it at the time of the original post that's what the file below is.

    PLEASE NOTE ALL CHANGED BLOCK RECIPES ONLY AFFECT CONSTRUCTOR RECIPES. ALL BLUEPRINTS WILL STILL ACT AS IF THE BLOCKS HAVE THE ORIGINAL INGREDIENTS

    CURRENTLY AFFECTED BLOCKS

    BA T2 Repair Bay

    Well, when I went to look for it with the attach button it wasn't the file so I assumed that I couldn't attach the file type.

    I'm guessing it should be the same as the directions in Config_example.ecf

    C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Configuration

    From that Eleon file;

    "
    # How it works:
    # - rename to 'Config.ecf' to activate
    # - change original values of parameters as desired
    # - listed parameters will overwrite the game's internal original values
    # - parameters not listed (commented out / removed) will cause the game to continue using the internal ORIGINAL values

    VERSION: 7


    # ==================== BLOCKS, DEVICES ==========================

    "

    So download Ronins file above, place it in the above directory, unzip and make sure the files name is exactly "Config.ecf".

    ahh, '2018'. Missed that, sry.
    Likely best to just use his file for examples, if you're inclined to mod your own Config. Just make sure to use the current "Config_Example.ecf" as the reference master.
    Eleon doesn't officially support modding yet, so this Config file does get major changes.
    The method they use for 'version' control is near the top of the file, " VERSION: 7 ", so older versioned Configs are intentionally ignored.

    oh, and if all you do play with this don't directly follow their instructions on simply renaming the example file; it's 17,000+ lines. Basically a full on copy of everything Eleon has been kind enough to expose. And there's no need for the game to re parse all the same values.
    Just make your Config with the bits you want to change.

    Final tip; the names of things are _not_ what they show as in-game. Nothing uses "HV", it's 'GV', SV = SS. CV = MS.
    To identify a particular block in-game, go into the console and enter " di ", should put a black box top of your screen that will show the working name. and you'll need to be fairly close to things for the correct ID to show.

    Good luck and there's a lot more info here on these forums if you decide to jump in. :)
