  • Hmm, I've never done it.  I've only modded the official 14 factions.  I guess you just read through the various .txt files until you figure it out.

  • It was so much fun, I used to do it all the time. I did not have crossfire then and think I had to manually replace the originals. I was thinking with crossfire there would be a folder you could just collect them

  • As far as I know, it can be specified in alphax.txt file. Look near the end of file for #CUSTOMFACTIONS:
    Code: [Select]

    ;
    ; First item is file name, second item is search key.
    ; These should always be the same except for debugging purposes.
    ;
    #NEWFACTIONS
    CYBORG,   CYBORG
    PIRATES,  PIRATES
    DRONE,    DRONE
    ANGELS,   ANGELS
    FUNGBOY,  FUNGBOY
    CARETAKE, CARETAKE
    USURPER,  USURPER


    ;
    ; These are factions you want included in the startup list.
    ; These may also be chosen when a random faction is selected.
    ; First item is file name, second item is search key.
    ; These should always be the same except for debugging purposes.

    You are orphans, earthdeirdre, your homeworld already buried so young among the aeons. Yet now you fill the skies where we watched a million sunsets with flame and contrails, paying no heed to the hard lessons the universe has tried to teach you. Are you a breath of life to invigorate a complacent world, you earthhumans, or an insidious cancer which must be excised?
    ~Lady Deirdre Skye ’Conversations With Planet’
