Buy more time?
« on: July 18, 2014, 11:42:07 am »

- There are in-game possibilities to "buy" more time? where I buy it? gives you more free time to explore?

- Are missing more time, I can not explore as I would like> <

One quest (that is also usually necessary to win the game) will delay the Death March by one year. There are also two simple mods available which slow down time and delay the Death March by several centuries, respectively: http://uqm-mods.sourceforge.net/

There are two things I know of that are relevant here. First, by completing a particular quest, you gain an additional year of in-game time. Second, there's a much faster way to travel across the galaxy.

Edit:
Thank you very much for the info;

"The Time Dilation Mod" and "The Time Dilation Mod"

I play in a UQM android tablet, how can I apply these two mods to keep them active by playing it on my tablet? or maybe some editing APK file to manually put the MODs? any suggestion is welcome hehe

I'm pretty sure there's no way to just apply the mod to your copy of UQM, you'd need to download a different version of UQM with the mod applied, and I'd be surprised if there was one for android... though I could be wrong.

I also would be worth a different version with those two mods, mods time the two applied;

Looking for an alternative way to apply my knowledge to compile this game for example, is zero, would be nice to have these mods and addons (addons folder), but I guess that is not possible;

Unless someone did me the favor of compiling the latest version for android with mods "The Time Dilation Mod" and "The Time Dilation Mod" applied, I'll have to stay with the desire, will try to find solution, thank you very much for the info ^ ^

I have tried to build Android versions. Always end up with compiling errors and never getting anything done.

Which is why I supplied the .diffs, for those brave enough to cross-compile. I also used to build OSX versions, but then I lost access to the Mac I was building them on.

I assume you not be able to enjoy these two mods on my tablet U_U hires2x UQM HD looks and handles very comfortable;

There will be some way to edit in HEX and implement the code of the two MODs manually? would know that they modify and file information not know that hehe

In theory, sure. In practice, nobody in their right mind would try when the source code is available.

Then I have to give up hehe do not have the knowledge to do it myself, I feel helpless xD

I would have liked to enjoy these two MODs with UQM on my tablet, we're going to do, to see if anyone dares to compile the android version, time with these mods, but for nothing hehe

Thank you very much!

That and if he is using an Android tablet , hex editing an apk or files within an apk can sometimes render them corrupt.

Hex editing a time mod might be easy since that was just modifying two variables, but everything else has extra code.
You would just have to find where the variables for HYPERSPACE_CLOCK_RATE and INTERPLANETARY_CLOCK_RATE are in the file and start hiking the value.

In the source code the values reside in src/uqm/clock.h, I changed the HCR and ICR from 5 / 30 to 60 / 360 respectively.

All I can say is that I can try to give it another shot to build android versions. But I doubt anything will come of it.

Those aren't actually even variables, they're preprocessor macros; they wind up as constants in the actual code the compiler sees (after the preprocessor is done with it), which makes finding and changing them even harder.

I wonder if pelya could build nice Android apps with the time/decleansing mods, being the Android porter and all?

This modification would have the same effect as the mods:
The Time Dilation Mod
The De-Cleansing Mod
Together? exact effect that that would have modified? I will investigate to see what can be done;

I appreciate your interest in trying to recompile the android version, I wish you luck * O *

Edit:
Nothing, I find the variables, would be good to add those MODs in addons folder, such as translations xD

In the computer version is compiled with MODs? "The Time Dilation Mod and The De-Cleansing Mod" together? (HD version), maybe you can play on the tablet from the computer, if I can, would be my only option, but is not the same U_U
