Default Re: Strategies.txt Knowledge Base

The default strategies for an empire are created when the empire itself is generated; either by the player or the mods creator. So if we want our adjustments to take (such as my Shuttle Carrier or your Militia Carrier Ship) we have to build the empire for the player or delete all empires forcing the player to take our modded Startigies.txt file.
NOTE The last comment quoted above is critical to your mod running correctly when played by another person. If you do not tell the user they will need to create new strategies so that your new unit types are included; or if you do not build new default empires (including any quick starts) the ships they build will just run away from each other. SE5 will only read the new strategies once! That is only when the EMPIRE is created!
