I'm thinking it would probably be a boon to searches in the future if we let this thread die, and start making new threads for different types of modding questions. It's a real pain to be searching for something, and end up at a thread with 100s of posts, since the forum software doesn't link properly in them (unless maybe it just doesn't like non-default settings...).

If you log out before doing your serach, the defaults work better for the search links.

Yeah, but it would still be better to have separate threads, I think.

No, the demo does not have the "Description_Abilities.txt" file.
I have a purchased copy and I can't locate this. It is a file, right? I am trying to understand how modding is done and it sounds like this file would be helpful. I have been waiting for a UI mod for SE IV and now find SE V still has no option to list the Construction Queue items in a format similar to the Colonies Facilities list. So I thought, I should try my hand at modding. Still reading though the forums, but I am interested in any ideas on where I can find the best information on modding SE V. Also it looks like basic modding information for SE IV is the same, am I correct?

I've posted the Description files here:

Keep in mind they are not 100% accurate or up to date.

Thanks to you and Pheonix-D for your quick response. I found your earlier post when I got farther down this large thread. I found your Web Site contains a lot of good information, keep up the good work and thanks again. As you seem to have been doing this for a while could you tell me will I be able to mod the UI or am I going about this the wrong way?

Will I agree on one level, on the other, I dont neccesarily like the idea of having to go to 100 different threads to find 100 different things either...

I guess if we make threads having to do with individual data files, or individual concepts like missiles, fighters, ships, shipsets, AI...etc...
