I'd like for a tutorial, telling me things like

- You need to do this to add character to a station, that can give you a quest
- You need to this to add dialogue to the quest
- You need these strings; quest title, quest description, etc.
- You need these files (partly covered in the WIKI, and probably the most easy to work out from looking at the code and files)
- You need to this to add rewards/items/objectives to a quest
- You need to this to add an objective ship with so and so AI to the quest

Some answers like that could really make this game going again. I love the game, and if we could get the community more active in adding story content, it would only benefit the game :-)

* Wilmore cheering you guys on!

Thank you, I have already gone through all available descriptions in the WIKI and I have spent quite some time looking at existing quests (like the anyjob.js and the Order quest line). I have to say that it seems that I have all the game at my disposal in the script files, but it is not really intuitive how to go about making a new quest (what steps that must be taken and so on) because of the lack of object orientation in the code. (I have a programming background, with Java and C++.)

Would it be possible to create some sort of a step-by-step manual on how to make a quest? (How to connect it to an NPC in a station, involve one or more specific or randomly generated NPC ship, or other objectives, the text lines and so on.)

I ended up in a situation where the game now thinks I accepted a quest, but it's nowhere to be found in the quest log and I had errors on the $00XX variables (what do they really mean, is it simply on-the-fly-created variables inside the function calls?)

Thanks for the reply. I did go through all available mods in the Steam workshop, but there was only one related to quests - the one that allows the user to choose all station quests (dailies). I have installed this one and it works like a charm.

But I am really still looking for new quests to add. Do you have any other mods to recommend along those lines?

Are there any quest packages (mods) for the game out there? I'd love to have more quests!

There is one thing that I find wanting in this game. There are too few quests, especially in multiplayer (which really is the fun part of the game). So I started looking into making my own, as part of my mod. I have now been studying some of the existing quests, like the "dailies" from the station commanders. However, I found the process very intricate and counter-intuitive.

Can somebody please help me with a step-by-step tutorial on how to make quests?

And possibly repeatable quests too? If I could add a quest package as a mod, the game would live much longer in our group of players, at least.

Help section / Mod not registering with the game
« on: June 18, 2018, 08:26:35 pm »

I'm pretty fresh at creating mods for Void Expanse. I have tried to modify a few ships. However, my mod won't register with the game, so when I start the game it doesn't show up in the mod list (I only find my STEAM mods there). Could somebody please help me take a look at what I'm missing out on here? It might be some silly mistake, but since I'm all fresh to this I would really appreciate it.

I have also tried downloading another mod (that I know works through in STEAM), but it doesn't show up either. Where do I place my mods on a Mac? Isn't it at ~/Library/Application Support/AtomicTorchStudio/VoidExpanse/Mods ?

I have also tried modifying the ModsConfig.xml directly, but it gets changed everytime I start the game.

Please reply here or message me directly, so I can send you my mod if you like to help me.
