Changes/Additions: Configs and Technical

  • Added display of allowed boosts per armor type in hover info
  • Map Info Panel: Fixed “Habitable Zone MIN/MAX” distance display (distance was shown too big before)
  • Instances: added “NoVolumeWeightForPlayer” to “InstanceData” to allow switching off the V&W checks for players in instances (f.e. to get more loot)
  • DialogueSystem: added new function AddItemsFromContainer(int containerId, int maxItemCount) to allow giving a player reward items that are specified in Containers.ecf
  • DialogueSystem: added new function OpenHtmlWindow(string title, string url, float widthPerc, float heightPerc); Please note: Please note: The function OpenHtmlWindow does not support H.264 / mp4 decoder. Other codecs like ‘webm’ can be used, though.
  • Added gameoptions.yaml parameter ‘CustomPlayerTab’ that allows to add a button in the players window that opens a HTML page.
  • Respawn at medic station: the search for a medic station is limited now to the local solar system as on big servers the DB query takes too long (which could lead to timeouts.)
  • Dynamic code support change (for dialogues features + Mod.XXX): Updated compiler that works with all current Dialogue features & especially Mod.XXX
  • DialogueSystem: first implementation of supporting a RESET parameter to allow restarting a state with a reset of the dialogue:
  • Console command reloaddata/rd: added reload of items, blocks and materials. Attention: this will work only for changing existing entities!
  • Instances: added yaml property ‘EnterWithEmptyInventory’ that will block any player that has items in his inventory/toolbelt
  • Modded player props head can now specify a bundle name starting with @ f.e. PropHead=@bundle/hat
  • ModApi: better log of execution exception- DB optimization: not writing ground AI, items and drones to DB any more as the DB table with entities gets too big in MP games
  • Sqlite DB: added possibility for parallel read queries. This will decrease the waiting times for long lasting queries for other clients esp. in MP.
  • Enhanced ecf file format to accept multi-line <CDATA> sections of raw content:
    • Allows, for example, to use naturally written C# code in dialogues
    • Note: as with block comments no other content is allowed after the closing tag
