My addons updated for 0.7
« on: April 22, 2012, 06:28:48 pm »

Come one, come all to the grand opening of addons updated!

I took the liberty in updating the addons I've collected over the years. It was a little bit of a learning curve but I think I managed quite nicely. And
without further adieu...

Battle - Change your battle music
http://www.filedropper.com/battle

Earthship - Change the names of the Earthling cruiser - I used star trek names but feel free to edit them yourselves.
http://www.filedropper.com/earthship

Engine - Changes the green engine color to red on static pictures.
http://www.filedropper.com/engine

Hyper - Change your hyperspace music.
http://www.filedropper.com/hyper

Menusnd - Changes the selection sound in game menu - I was annoyed by the loud selection sound so I changed it.
http://www.filedropper.com/menusnd

Mycon - Here is the edited text and voice for missing bits - I believe this was VileRancours??
http://www.filedropper.com/mycon

Ore - This is the Accessibility mod, it adds lettering to the ore on planets for easy identification for color impaired persons.
http://www.filedropper.com/ore

Rebirth - Changed the pkunk rebirth sound to something less muffled.
http://www.filedropper.com/rebirth_2

Redalert - Changed the alien ship alert sound to something more familiar.
http://www.filedropper.com/redalert

YellowFried - This changes the F.R.I.E.D color from blue to a yellowish-orange blast. I'm looking into nic version...please stand by.
http://www.filedropper.com/fried

Remix4 - This is an unofficial remix pack 4
http://www.filedropper.com/3doremix4

For those of you interested you can combine all your remix packs into one folder and enable them via the --addon command.

If there are any more mods please fell free to share them here.

Not all of those links work, redalert for example, there is nothing to download, just a browse and search box appears...? Huh

Damn, links not working. Sad Really wanted that fourth remix pack as it seems the official one is never coming. Still have to figure out how to replace the music for Fwiffo and post-Ultron Utwig though and I guess changing the battle music just for one race is not possible.

Thanks, mate! Seems that this pack also has the Fwiffo and Ultron remixes as well, sweet.  Smiley Looking forward to some of the other addons as well.

Edit: Ok, I'm starting to feel pretty stupid, but how do you make the pack work? I thought it would be enough to just put the zip file to /content/addons/. Needs to be renamed or something?

unzip folder to:

content/addons/3doremix/4/ *.ogg

I have my remix packs all located in a single folder named 3doremix. In that folder I have 4 folders named 1-4. Folder 4 contains the unofficial .ogg remixes. Folders 1-3 are the official released remix packs.
 
Change:
* = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix/4/ *.ogg
To:
* = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/ *.ogg
Place all the *.ogg files in 3doremix4 folder. Place this folder in addons. Add "--addons 3doremix4" command to your shortcut.

If you locate your content zip "uqm-0.7.0-content", and inside you'll find a file called uqm.rmp. Use this to help create your own overrides to place in the addons folder. open with notepad or alternative text editor.

I took and mixed all my addons into a single folder and used a single command --addons myaddons. I need to sort through that folder and make individual addons for all the content I have listed in my first post. I didn't realize how short lived that upload site was. When I'm done sorting this out I will make sure it lasts Smiley

Thanks, but just to (hopefully) make everything crystal clear to me:
1. The changes to "* = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix/4/ *.ogg" are done in the remix4.rpm file?
2. After I place all the .ogg files to addons/3doremix4/, in which folder should the remix4.rpm be in?
3. Does the 3doremix4 folder need to be changed into a .zip/.uqm file?

So far adding --addons 3doremix4 to the shortcut gives me an error message "invalid option or its argument". Did you mean "--addon 3doremix4" ?

My addons/3doremix4/ folder now contains only the .ogg files from the remix pack and remix4.rpm is in addons folder. The three official remix packs I have left untouched so far and they sit in addons as well.

Thanks in advance for your help and patience.

yes, that was a typo. Sorry about that.  --addon 3doremix4

yes, change the remix4.rpm file.

2. After I place all the .ogg files to addons/3doremix4/, in which folder should the remix4.rpm be in?
same folder

3. Does the 3doremix4 folder need to be changed into a .zip/.uqm file?
take the contents of my zip and extract them. throw zip to the side not needed.
edit rpm file to reflect the changes i stated and rename the rpm file to 3doremix4.
create a folder in addons named 3doremix4.
place extracted and edited contents in said folder: 3doremix4.
add command --addon 3doremix4

does that work?

It works now! Thanks a lot, mate! Although I had to make some additional changes to the .rpm file, as it looked like this:

comm.chmmr.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/chmmr/chmmr.org (why the extra folder, and .org on this and the following ones?)
comm.orz.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/orz/orz.org
comm.pkunk.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/pkunk/pkunk.org
comm.shofixt.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/shofixt/shofixt.org
comm.spathi.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/spathi/spathi.org
comm.supox.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/supox/supox.org
comm.utwig.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/utwig/.org (another strange mistake)
comm.zoqfot.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/zoqfot/.org (the same)
comm.syreen.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/syrenn.ogg (I guess it's meant to be syreen.ogg)
comm.yehat.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/yehat.ogg
credits.music = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/credits.org
music.hyperspace = MUSICRES:addons/3doremix4/hyper.ogg

After correcting those it started working.  Smiley

I wasn't able to check if all the tracks work, but at least the Hyperspace, Orz, Syreen and Spathi work, so I guess the rest will as well. Later I'll check if I can use this to change the Kohr-Ah music as well.

One minor gripe is that it gives Fwiffo's StarRunner as a track for all Spathi ships, while the Safe Ones seem to have the original unremixed version. There also seems to be no text line for the utwigult.org which is included in the remix pack, so I guess that doesn't work.

Is there a way to find out what is the "comm.something.music." for the Spathi Safe Ones, Fwiffo (I believe he can have his own track if wanted?) and the post-Ultron Utwig?

I really hate to necro-bump, especially since this is my first post on this account (my old account was either purged, or I've completely forgotten what it was), but this is kind of what I came here for...

How much trouble would it be for someone to upload the "Yellow FRIED for 0.7" mod?  I ask because I couldn't figure out how to make the old version work, despite following the the "shadow file" instructions on the wiki fairly closely.  Filedropper has dropped the file. (Ba-dum tish.)  I'd be extremely grateful if someone could do that.  As cool as the blue flame bursts of the F.R.I.E.D. are, the yellow ones are definitely more authentic.

Thanks in advance.


Well, I feel dumb now.  The reason my version wasn't working?  I forgot to add "addons/" to the directory structure in the RMP file...  Don'cha hate it when that happens?

In any case, it's working now.  If anyone wants it, you can grab it from here.  I doubt my version is much, if any different than Defender's. (Though I did rename some files from the original original version.)

I'm not that hard to find... if you know where to look.

Oh, I vaguely recall trying (and failing, I think) to get this to work... though I gave up pretty easily, since I don't really have a reason to prefer it.
