Cheats?
« on: June 06, 2013, 06:08:21 PM »
I hate to cheat at some games, and this one, Idk. But honestly, I want to see what I can build, and stuff. I read earlier on the forum about cheating, how is this achieved?

Real cheats as in the command line or the chat window do not exist. You can alter the savegames, if you really want to. They're located in your AppData folder.

Do I have to use a program to alter these files?
I really wanna know how far I can go with unlimited resources.

No, you need a normal file editor only. I can recommend Notepad++, it's basically windows notepad in much better.

Tried opening the player_1 file with Notepad++ and the file is full of NUL's and stuff.

Well, you can enter lines of lua in chat and cheat that way :V

Rylo - while in game, just hit ENTER and use the /give command if you are doing a single player game or you are the admin of a multi player game.

/give <yourname> 10000 credits
/give <yourname> 10000 titanium

This is a way for you to mess around without being in creative mode.

Then the files are no longer stored in text form, which is readable by humans, but rather in binary form. You won't be able to open and read binary files as easily.

Just try the ingame chat solutions posted by the other people :)

You could just try playing in creative mode.

Or or you could type /admin then give yourself all the resources and money you could ever want. I believe the command is like /give -p infinitynull -g money -a 10000000

As far as cheating and modifying the game to our personal preferences, something which some players may be overlooking is the server.ini file inside the Galaxy folder. I named my galaxy "Zerkov" and this folder was located:

C:\Users\ [username] \AppData\Roaming\Avorion\galaxies\Zerkov

And here is my server.ini file:

Code: [Select]
[Game]
Seed=Zerkov
Difficulity=-1
InfiniteResources=false
CollisionDamage=0.25
LootDiminishingFactor=0.00499999989
ResourceDropChance=0.400000006
TurretDropChanceFromTurret=0.0250000004
TurretDropChanceFromCraft=0.25
TurretDropChanceFromBlock=0.00499999989
SystemDropChanceFromCraft=0.200000003
SystemDropChanceFromBlock=0.00499999989
ColorDropChanceFromCraft=0.0500000007
ColorDropChanceFromBlock=0.00249999994
sameStartSector=true
startUpScript=data/scripts/server/server.lua
startSectorScript=startsector
[System]
saveInterval=600
sectorUpdateTimeLimit=300
emptySectorUpdateInterval=0.5
workerThreads=3
weakUpdate=true
[Networking]
port=27000
broadcastInterval=5
isPublic=false
isListed=false
useSteam=true
[Administration]
maxPlayers=10
name=Thundercraft's Server
description=An Avorion Server
accessListMode=Blacklist

Because I really want to see turrets drop from craft a lot more often, I've since modified TurretDropChanceFromCraft from 0.25 to 0.5, which should double the chance.

I also set ColorDropChanceFromCraft and ColorDropChanceFromBlock both to "0.0", because I really hate how it does that.

(I think it's kind of silly that damaged and wrecked ships drop paint. Also, it's frustrating because dropped paint gets my hopes up, yet paint seems worthless and distracts me from collecting good stuff like modules and resources.)

Can you turn this on and off?

If you are playing singleplayer it's a constant thing. You don't even have to type /admin I was wrong.

Just type in /give -p infinitynull -g money -a 10000000. You can do this with anything like IRON or naonite. /give -p <player> -g <goods> -a <amount>.

It's actually a lot shorter than that in single player. The LUA commands are:

/give playername amount resource

So, for 10,000 Iron, you'd simply type:

/give playername 10000 iron

Also works with credits in place of resource.  ;)
