Fragile Allegiance Discussion
I'm trying to see if I can find how and where the game stores its data in the SAVEGAME.000 game. Most likely, it's a default position within the savegame for each type of ore. Should I figure out how to edit those values, I'll release a small utility which I'll post here.
I also understand why the UGE module didn't work. The location of the data for your starting asteroid differs each time you start a new game. Most likely, when using the UGE module posted here you were actually editing one of the asteroids you hadn't yet discovered.
Luckily, the relevant data is stored at a specific location close to your astroid's name. So in theory, when my limited programming skills pay off, I could write a little program which the user would supply with the name of his/her starting asteroid. Knowing that, the program can look it up in the savegame and then edit the values.
However, I'm not promising anything
What does this patcher do? Let's see:
The four cheap ores are set to 2500 units.
The four medium-priced ores are set to 1250 units.
The most expensive ores are set to 500 units.
Your overall budget is set to nearly 250 million credits, if you want to (you can skip the money patch so you'll only have lots of ore).
I'll have to see where and how I'll publish this patcher.

-- Edit: an updated patcher is almost available. Version 0.2 lets the user enter the desired amount of ores for each kind of ores (low-, medium- and high-valued ores). If you want to edit the money, that's possible too.
Only problem is: the high-value ores are a bit flaky in their radioactivity. You could end up with such high amounts of radiaton, your entire asteroid will be filled with radiation filters...

Know it's been a while since you've posted but hopefully you'll pick this up.
I've just got playing FA again for the first time in years. (Still pretty rubbish at it for the moment!) Do you download the UGE from somewhere or is it bundeled with the game? Can't seem to find anything on it on a google search and theres noting obvious in my FA directory. Could you point me in the right direction?
I remember being able to use hex workshop to find the location of the money, the ore, the timetables of the transport that brings anything you buy and takes everything you sell.
But that was long, long ago.
