Maybe Wink

But THIS is the greatest news EVER to hit EF next to EF2!

I wish I could make sense of the source code. Not commented very well.

I suppose now, that if anyone on the VE team could figure out how to edit the turbolift menu layouts, you could get a TNG one!

Dobber can't be a team all by himself. Na na!

I'll take a look at it myself though and see what I can figure out.

I know. Still, in the credits of the old demo I got, it showed credits:

Dobberman
Worf55 - skinner
Toonloon - didnt say
U.S.S. Speed - textures
Laz Rojas - skinner
OZz - translation

I guess at least one of them could figure it out, even if Dobber's doing it mostly all himself.

Check it out in the ui folder: ui_turbolift.cpp
[code:1:22bab43f09]static struct

Here's the 16 button limit.
[code:1:22bab43f09]#define MAX_DECKS 16[/code:1:22bab43f09]
There's similar references throughout the file. It's going to take a lot of rewriting to increase the limit.

I've done some coding of my own and added new ranks to EF. Dobber said he didn't need any new ranks for VE but he did say he might change some other things.

hey, for u colony7 mapper guys, now that the code is out couldnt you make it into its own game?

Read the sourcecode disclaimer very carfully. It says that that is STRICTLY forbidden. You wouldn't have to read it anyway since it is VERY obvious... What ever!
