Space attack/disaster reducer mod
You need to start a new game chris. And be sure to COPY the file so it is dated.

Duthos i have a problem. I want to redirect your post to some of the other forums, is that ok? I'll be citing the post back to this. I know you mentioned that the mod may not work on other languages other than English (and perhaps Russian) so I wanna post it up on a Chinese forum for the guys to test it (I'm Chinese too). Please tell me if its ok. Thanx
And btw, it didn't really work for me. It happened that i seemed to encounter EVEN MORE disasters and pirate raids....do you think there's anything i can do? maybe the chinese version is the opposite of the eng ver, so that the smaller the frequency value the less the incident would occur?
Sorry for the long post, I'm just very desperate. I'll appreciate your help and your contribution to help us (or at least me)

I would prefer you post a link to this thread, so I can follow feedback (until I decide my mod is finalized). If that is not practical because most people on the thread are not bilingual, than I would appreciate if you include a link to this thread in your translation.
Also did you follow the instrucions? It is very important that you COPY the file AND start a new game. And I am starting to think languanges really don't matter.

yeah i already cited this site and also mentioned your name on it. most of the feedbacks replied that the frequency of incidents increased dramatically. one even said he had 10 raids in 20 mins...so i am just curious if the chinese system actually integrates the float digits differently. i've also asked them to help conduct a series of test on all 3 mods to see if the frequency actually is increasing.
I must also apologize, because i was so eager that i posted it before your consent. but i strictly made myself place your name and posted the thread with the topic heading "cited source". i hope it is okay. The memebers of that forum are mostly Chinese, so none of the posts are in English. But if you wish to clarify i can give you the address.
Is it possible for you to provide me with a package that the floats are lower than the default so that I can send it out for test as well? I can also provide you with the results later on. That is if you wish. Or I can of course wait for you to complete the entire project before i can cite it in the forum
i hope my english is understandable (kinda messy).
The settings I changed are 'second counts' before/between events, that is, how many seconds pass between them. Setting them to lower numbers will NOT work for other languages, the only possibility is that different languanges refer to different files (though it seems to work in russian) and there is nothing I can do (being an ignorant mono-lingual).
However I think it should work, and you didn't answer my question about starting a new game.

Clarify just once more, this MOD wont work if, I log in when playing, even after I make a new game, start it up with the mod and all, than save, exit game, restart game, login-reload save, thus MOD no longer used? since I logged in? just cause of achievements and such. You do need to be logged in to get achievements right? or is it offline to.

oh right it is that....well that bit is clear.
Oh yeah and of course I made sure I started a new game. And most of the replies I got are also that they started a new game.
But is it that 'starting a new game' means a new planet? or does it actually involve deleting the entire save file?
I actually think it WILL work online, but I need someone to verify that for me. If you would try I would be grateful.
I broke my installs several times making these by modify data in stupid ways untill I learned better, I needed to install a version sans secure rom so I can't log in.
And herman by a new game I mean selecting a new planet from the main menu. Are you online, or did you disable the EA connection?
