That'd be the to-hit forumla right below the damage. It starts out as 100 (by default, defined in settings.txt) and goes from there.

so what does 0 - [%Range%] actually mean in that context?

if range is 10... 0 - 10 = -10...

Correct. So the actual chance to hit would be 90% (since it starts at 100, - the penalty)

Range is all in arbitrary units.

The best way to get a sense for how far things are is to make a couple ships, throw them into the simulator and turn on the weapon range circles.

In terms of data types, Range would be an integer, from 1 to 500 (Current hardcoded max)

A value from 0-500. Its only displayed in units of 10, but SEV calculates it down to 1s at least.

Default Re: Modding SEV Thread Questions

Is there any way to mod the components so they do not list simply in alphabetical order. I would like to group the components by type (control, engines, colonization, beam, missile, etc). I have tried resorting the components in the components.txt file but it does not seem to make a difference.

edit: captain kwok. i see yours are sorted by component type. is there some other change i need to make in another file for this?

You can turn off alpha-sort for components in either settings.txt or under Empire Options in-game. The order is then the listed order in Components.txt.

thanks. I also asked this shortly after in the thread about your mod.
