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.
