Just not sure at what frequencies, but they went for 15 M ships to over 150 as soon as I loaded the save.
Then I can't remember what the respawn time might be or maybe it is whatever the default is. Haven't looked in a while

Hello, folks I have a question. Which settings should I change if I want the Xenon to expand more aggressively? I've wiped out the Terrans and the Xenon have taken over the Asteroid Belt, but they are taking their sweet time populating the rest of the Sol System. Thank you.

Increase the amount of ships as much as you can for xenon if you haven't already. The factions only expand if they have enough ships but eventually there is a ceiling. If you already increased the number of ships to the max in the settings than you can try editing the scripts and increasing the ships even more.

Thank you. Just as I posted the question, I noticed Mars and Jupiter turning red, so I guess I'm in the right track.

Hey, im new to x4 modding and hope you could explain me some stuff in your mod

Code: Select all

<cue name="job_activate_XenonApocalypse" instantiate="true" checktime="player.age + 300s" checkinterval="10min">		
		<conditions>        
		<check_value value="md.FOCWsetup.Settings.$activateXenonApocalypse == 1"/>	
		</conditions>	 
	 <actions>
								
				<find_ship name="$XenonApocalypse" job="'xenon_destroyer_apoc'" space="player.galaxy" multiple="true"/>    
                <set_value name="$numship" exact="$XenonApocalypse.count"/>
				<set_value name="$totalxenship9" operation="add" exact="0"/>
				<set_value name="$ExistingDestroyerThreshold" exact="60"/> 
				<do_if value="$totalxenship9 gt $ExistingDestroyerThreshold * 2">
					<set_value name="$totalxenship9" exact="0"/>
				</do_if>
											
					<do_if value="($numship + $totalxenship9) lt $ExistingDestroyerThreshold">
					<find_station name="$XenonShipyard" space="player.galaxy" functional="true" multiple="false">	
					<match canbuildships="true"/>  <match owner="faction.xenon"/>
					 
					</find_station>
					<request_job_ship job="'xenon_destroyer_apoc'" name="this.$Requested_Job_Ship" requester="$XenonShipyard" zone="$XenonShipyard.zone"/>
                    <set_value name="$totalxenship9" operation="add" exact="1"/>
					</do_if>
					
					<do_else><set_value name="$totalxenship9" operation="add" exact="1"/>
					<cancel_cue cue="job_activate_XenonApocalypse"/>
				</do_else>
					<remove_value name="$XenonApocalypse"/>
					<remove_value name="$XenonShipyard"/>
				</actions>
	</cue>
i read you explanation about that <set_value name="$ExistingDestroyerThreshold" exact="60"/> this part defines how many of this job are build, or better how many or this job are ordered, so if i understand that correct in this case the xenon would orrder 60 times this job? or did i miss anything?


and what also confuse me when i look that job in the the job.xml i find this

Code: Select all

  <job id="xenon_destroyer_apoc" name="{40000,9}" startactive="false">
    <modifiers commandeerable="true"/>
    
    <category faction="xenon" tags="[factionlogic, military, destroyer]" size="ship_xl"/>
    <quota galaxy="5" cluster="2"/>
    <location class="galaxy" macro="xu_ep2_universe_macro" faction="xenon" relation="self" comparison="exact"/>
    <environment buildatshipyard="true"/>        <encounters id="ship_cluster"/>
    <ship>
      <select faction="xenon" tags="[military, destroyer]" size="ship_xl"/>
      
      <owner exact="xenon" overridenpc="true"/>
    </ship>	
	<subordinates>
	<subordinate job="xenon_fighter_escort_heavy"/>
	<subordinate job="xenon_frigate_addescort_m"/>
	<subordinate job="xenon_destroyer_moreescort"/>
	</subordinates>
  </job> 
so this part here " <quota galaxy="5" cluster="2"/>" does that limit the amount of this job? like this job only exist 5 times in the whole galaxy and maximal 2 times in a cluster? or for what are these quota for?

i hope you can clear up my confusion for that

i hope you can clear up my confusion for that
Hello, the first block of code you are showing with <set_value name="$ExistingDestroyerThreshold" exact="60"/> is the maximum allowed fleets of this type which will be ordered. They are not ordered at once and it may never even reach this amount, it depends. Basically each of these is on a timer and every time the script fires, it orders the fleet but only if it does not exceed the maximum allowed amount.

As for the second block of code which is from jobs.xml, the <quota galaxy="5" cluster="2"/> is not used at all in this mod so it does nothing. Normally, jobs.xml would define how many fleets/ships are allowed in a galaxy and in a cluster by doing this but it doesn't impact the ships from FOCW so you can ignore it.

If you want more Escort ships for each fleet though, you can edit this part:

<subordinates>
<subordinate job="xenon_fighter_escort_heavy"/>
<subordinate job="xenon_frigate_addescort_m"/>
<subordinate job="xenon_destroyer_moreescort"/>
</subordinates>

and just add more, for example:

<subordinates>
<subordinate job="xenon_fighter_escort_heavy"/>
<subordinate job="xenon_fighter_escort_heavy"/>
<subordinate job="xenon_frigate_addescort_m"/>
<subordinate job="xenon_frigate_addescort_m"/>
<subordinate job="xenon_destroyer_moreescort"/>
<subordinate job="xenon_destroyer_moreescort"/>
</subordinates>

Just doubled the amount of escorts/subordinates. Or you can play with it to add whatever you want.

Post by user1679 »

Having a bit of trouble getting the right balance. I've restarted a few games and each time XEN and TEL are almost instantly at war within 30 minutes. In a recent game, the XEN just steamrolled TEL in Ianaums Zura and were already building defense platforms in Hatikvah's Choice III before the first hour was up. I adjusted the parameters in focwsetup.xml and started a new game. This time, within 20 minutes TEL had 3 battleships invading Matrix #451 and took it over (map color change) without breaking a sweat (do lizard people sweat?).

Here's my config. What I'm looking for is a more balanced approach with slightly more aggressive Xenon than vanilla. I have an i5 13600 with an RTX 3060 if that matters:

This is very tough, it depends on too many variables. Just like you are seeing. Every time you start a new game, different things could happen. You could try starting a new game without all the Xenon ships active and then activate them later so it takes time to build them. Don't activate any extra teladi ships too.

By the way in your settings you have <!-- Do you want to activate additional Xenon Miners and Xenon Energy Transport ships? 1 for Yes and 0 for No -->
<set_value name="$activateXenminers" exact="2" />

This is wrong, 2 isn't a valid choice.

Maybe try keeping the defense carrier for Xenon but not the attack carriers. Also, you might need to tweak the numbers and give Xenon more defense carriers.

In a recent game, the XEN just steamrolled TEL in Ianaums Zura and were already building defense platforms in Hatikvah's Choice III before the first hour was up. I adjusted the parameters in focwsetup.xml and started a new game. This time, within 20 minutes TEL had 3 battleships invading Matrix #451 and took it over (map color change) without breaking a sweat (do lizard people sweat?).

Here's my config. What I'm looking for is a more balanced approach with slightly more aggressive Xenon than vanilla. I have an i5 13600 with an RTX 3060 if that matters:

This is very tough, it depends on too many variables. Just like you are seeing. Every time you start a new game, different things could happen. You could try starting a new game without all the Xenon ships active and then activate them later so it takes time to build them. Don't activate any extra teladi ships too.

By the way in your settings you have <!-- Do you want to activate additional Xenon Miners and Xenon Energy Transport ships? 1 for Yes and 0 for No -->
<set_value name="$activateXenminers" exact="2" />

This is wrong, 2 isn't a valid choice.

Maybe try keeping the defense carrier for Xenon but not the attack carriers. Also, you might need to tweak the numbers and give Xenon more defense carriers.
Thanks for catching my typo. I'm going to try giving everyone the extra fighters but not capital ships and see how it goes. I can always activate the capital ships later once factions have had a little more time to mature.

Does anyone know if FOCW works with the 7.0 beta?

This mod will always work, you never have to worry about it not working (except for maybe some strange super rare circumstances if any?)

So that seemed to do the trick. There have been several minor skirmishes around the map but removing the extra capital ships has allowed the Xenon (and Yaki) to expand a little without being overwhelmed while also not letting them steamroll over everyone. It seems to have made the universe even more dangerous, I was flying around Path to Profit in my little Elite Sentinel when I ran into a K guarding some mining ships. Was kinda random but fun because it makes exploring less boring.

Just installed the mod on a 7.00 beta 4 savegame (my save is around 120 hours).
I did set almost everything to 1 (light) for all factions except HOP/PAR that in my opinion already have too many fleets in my playthrough.
I added carriers, fighters and destroyers to all factions.
I only added more fighters to Xenon because in my game they already use a ton of I/K, but nothing else, to attack. I didn't gave them the possibility of building more miners/transports. I'll see if i change this in the future.
I only used the "1=light" setting for everything, never 2 or 3, and NO magical spawns for anyone.
I do not use any of the Deadair's mods. I AM the one filling the holes in each faction's economy. I don't want any magic spawns of ships or wares.

1 hour in game after adding the mod, my save where the universe was really slow, the economy stall, the wares prices low, no invasion or conflicts at all...Became a wonderful mess ! Some Yaki groups started attacking my stations in TEL, ZYA and HOP Space. They even attacked my factories in a sector i took from the XEN.
ANT and HOP were having a huge fight with multiple L/XL ships in Second Contact : Flashpoint.
ZYA retook one of their systems to ARG.
All of that in ONE hour, NO SETA ! It gave me the same feeling that you have in the first hour of a new game, when there are conflicts everywhere. And i noticed absolutely no drop in my FPS.

THIS IS HUGE. This mod really made my savegame become interesting again after 120 hours of building factories everywhere that barely made money because none of the factions were loosing/building ships. This is everything i've ever dreamed of in X4 since release. I don't get why these settings aren't in vanilla.

Thanks a lot to the author. And if anyone wants my settings, here they are : (just copy/paste them into your focwsetup.xml or download the file and replace the original)

BlackRain, do you know if we still need to add Deadair jobs to the Xenon? I remember in 6.X there was a theory that something was off with Xenon production and you made a few posts explaining how you could apply some of the Deadair jobs/ware code to the Xenon. I remember doing that in 6.X and it made the Xenon an absolute total menace. Is the current theory that the Xenon need this adjustment or will normal FOCW setting be sufficient to make them a threat?

The reason for adding deadair was just the inability of the AI factions to sufficiently supply their shipyards with resources to keep up with increased production. If you have added a heavy amount of additional fleets to the Xenon, it might be wise to still keep it for just the Xenon. I just let deadair work for every faction, I do not mind that resources get cheated in, it makes for a more lively game in my opinion so I just let it go and adjust the settings to my liking. I am still using it so I didn't even test 7.0 without it honestly. I would also recommend starting a new game with the Xenon and the Zyarth patriarchy having the extra ships (this way they spawn at new game start) and then add whatever other settings you want to the other factions (so that they have to build the new fleets and do not start with them). Zyarth will probably need the extra ships to fight the Xenon, other factions should be fine without the extra ships initially. You could also add just fighters to every other faction initially and add the capital fleets later.

I wanted to share some settings which I have experienced working pretty well.

When you start a new game, I only activated fighters for all factions but I allowed Zyarth Patriarchy to have all additional options which means extra capital ships, large fleets, fighters, etc. I also gave the xenon a little bit more ships here and there. After playing the game for several hours, I then start to activate some of the additional fleets but not all and then after a few more hours activate more of the additional fleets and large fleets for all factions. I do not give Vigor, Ministry, Boron or Terran more ships. I would only give Terran more ships if I have them going to war with everyone, otherwise they don't really need them. Boron do not need more ships usually and neither does Vigor unless you want to fight them or something. Also, for Teladi, I would not give them any extra large fleets or anything otherwise they become too strong. Just give them the basic stuff.

This works pretty well and creates a good experience and a lot of interesting fights.

Hello
The only thing that doesn't work is the crisis event with this mod.
I tried it several times with and without the mod.

Not sure what you mean, I don't see how this mod could affect the crisis events. This does not in any way change anything in the base game. This mod only adds additional ships to the game, all of which are created by this mod.
