Ok, you almost have it! ;b;
Notice under #FACTIONS and #NEWFACTIONS that the faction names are repeated with a comma separating the first and second item in each line. You need to do this for your entries under #CUSTOMFACTIONS. It doesn't matter if they are capitalized.
Also, be sure each faction has both its ".txt" and ".pcx" files in your AC folder.
That should do it.

Thanks to both of you! I got it working right.  Lack of pcx files explains another thing wrong (no pictures), and I figured out the accelerated start (don't ask).  Thank you and Merry Christmas!

 :wave: Sometimes a little thing can cause a lot of  :wall:, as any of us who have done any modding know. I've been playing since 2000, and do a lot with factions and the alphax.txt, and I still forget small things. I'm not always sure if that's the game's complexity or my age.

Energy unequal allocation penalty bug
« Reply #18 on: January 29, 2017, 12:32:47 AM »
Hi Yitzi.
Thank you for your patch and continuous efforts to improve the game. The game is great and you make it even greater!

Sadly, I found a bug in SMAX after I applied the patch. I don't know if "after" means "because" but cannot verify for sure. Please have a look if you can locate and verify it. Thank you!

Here are my findings.

Bug:
Social engineering screen energy allocation sliders show penalty percentage for unequal economy/research allocation but the actual penalty is different. For example on normal efficiency I allocate 100% energy to economy. The text reads "-40% Economy". Yet actual penalty is somewhere -8%. I checked it in social engineering screen, F3 screen, and base screens. They all calculate and summarize numbers consistently as if penalty is -8%.

Tests:
Unpatched version SMAX - no bug.
Patch 3.4 SMAX - bug.
Patch 3.5c SMAC - no bug.
Patch 3.5c SMAX - bug.

The patch is up.  Sorry it took so long, but it's been a while since I had the chance to check the forums.

Oh, no worries. It doesn't affect the game quality much as I rarely allocate more to energy than to research. I discovered it accidentally.

Explosive Conflict only came out of its month closed tests yesterday and Im betting they will take 3 to 4 weeks to publicly test it on the PTS.

These changes to factions should prevent players from trolling your faction / bypassing bounty system

you can now kick & ban/unban from your faction
you can also invite players to join your faction without having to give out a password.

There was a bug with movers in .99f that caused items to explode when riding up moving platforms.  This was first discovered on Tab's Doom 2 Map01 alpha.  The problem has been fixed.  Please redownload the .99f server patch from the downloads page to fix the issue.

In the years since our arrival, we have foolishly disrupted so many of Planet's ecosystems that entire species may vanish without our ever having understood, or even known them. We must halt this plunder, and halt it immediately, for our own survival as a species depends on our ability to strike a balance on this world.
~Commissioner Pravin Lal 'Mind Worm, Mind Worm'
