How do I add a cargo type?

Hi, how do I add a cargo type for use in a mission (like a data disk).
And how do I define the new cargo type in the mďsn resource?(i.e make it appear on you radar screen)

Thanks, Entarus 🙂

To add one, you must change one that already exists, I am almost positive that the number of cargo types is hard coded in each game. To change one of the existing ones, just look through the str# resources (they are labeled) and use the formula in the bibles to replace it with a 'str ' resource.

Actually, I think you can add your own. Look in the EV Nova Bible. I've done it in Escape Velocity using Shmelta-V.

A french man wrote a book using words without the letter "(url="http://"http://www.evula.com")e(/url)." It was then translated into english, still sans (url="http://"http://www.evula.com")e(/url)s.

I don't think he asked if he can replace a type of cargo, he asked to "add" a cargo type. Now it will also help to read your bible, depending which EV game you're talking about.

How do you do it in Nova? I too have been wanting to add a mission related cargo type. How does one go about doing that without replacing the entire STR# resource?

Closest to an answer, but no answer.

.....Don't suppose I can deBump this? :redface:

Copied the requisite parts to my plugin, and made the additions.
If I'd waited a little longer.....

if you're just talking about a strictly mission cargo type, you just add it to str# 4000. if you want it to be something you can buy/sell as well, then you have to replace one of the existing ones. to do this, select one of the 6 standard cargo types and modify the corresponding entries of str# 4000, 4001, 4002, and 4004

By the way, this was a lot easier to do with Mission Computer than it was with Resedit. Once I copied the 4000 files and editted the first and third ones (the second actually made it a commodity), it was easy to select the new item in the list.

Resedit is obscure in doing this, but I still like it for other things.
