Ok found the solution first off go to forums.amplitude-studios.com/showthread.php?9258-Tutorials-for-Modding-ES
your going to have to make a simple mod for this to work but its easy, first follow the how to create a mod directions, then go to your new mod directory under the simulation folder find the file called FactionTrail.xml and open with notepad++ then its the same directions as given in the begining of this thread. after that just run the mod.. im in the middle of this now just wanted to get people going in the right direction
Hm. All the assets-files are just a big mess of stuff(tm) for me using Notepad++ (tried several other equivalent programs aswell). Its a clean install of it and I haven't changed anything. Any clues to what I'm doing wrong? Any help much appreciated
hey guys,found what to do on the steam forums. Apparently you go to Program(x86)/steam/steamapps/common/endlesspace/public/simulation using notepad++ open factiontrait and use the search option to find Cost="65". this should bring up all the faction affinity names.
AS of right now, I have edited the maximum custom race points. Haven't actually started a game yet. Just thought ya'll should know.
I realize I am a bit late to the party, but what you do is edit this file in Notepad++ Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Endless Space\Public\Simulation\FactionTrait.xml Use the notepad++'s search function (ctrl+f), click on the replace tab and under the Find What: box put Cost="65" and in the Replace With: box put Cost="999" after you do that click the Replace All button. You now have 999 points for all but two of the custom race Affinities. To get the other two just use notepad++'s search function (ctrl+f) again, click on the replace tab and under the Find What: box put Cost="60" and in the Replace With: box put Cost="999" after you do that click the Replace All button. And be sure to save. You are now done. Play the game and create a new custom faction and enjoy.
