Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any ideas on how change which characters are present at the start of the game and whether or not their location is random?

 

(useing the slots for starting characters has occured to me, but isn't sufficient).

Past the main characters, it is random. Tne number of additional characters is based on the size of the galaxy.

Fighting is terrible, but not as terrible as losing the will to fight.

Where they start is an interesting concept, and by no means random at all, I think. For example, Veers always seems to start on a system where the Empire needs a General badly, and Piett seems to start on a system badly needing some Imperial diplomacy....

By main, I assume you mean major, but characters like Dodonna and Willard are not major and always start on Yavin. Has anyone figured out what special designation they have, or tell me what .dll i should look into if I want to experiment?

I think that's hardcoded.. the only thing i can think of are the slots of the starting chars.. dodonna, chewie, antilles, piett, veers, needa, ozzel, jerjerrod.

I believe that can be confirmed. However, changing the ships really isn't much use. If want a specific ship in the beginning, just make the research 0. :)

It's just like characters: Certain slots are flagged for starting ships to be taken from them.

Numbers are related to the whole maintainance isssue, placement is highly random except for Judicator (Coruscant) and with a greater chance that imperial ships start at planets with low loyalty. I do not really know about character placement except for the obvious things (Yavin, HQ ect.)

 

The rebel HQ gets at least two ships, one of which is a transport (or rather from the slot used for the Medium Transport in classic Rebellion).

The Empire always starts with at least an ISD around Coruscant.

The slots of the starting ships for the imps are:

ISD

VSD

Galleon

Carrack

Dread

 

For the Rebs:

MEdium Trasnport

Corellian Corvette

Bulk Cruiser

Alliance Escort Carrier

Clouded everything is. The Dark side, I suspect.

 

 

That's just the way it is. Except for the HQ and Coruscant, ships are random. It's th code. Or the Force.
