Getting really confused
Ok, here is what I'm doing. The player's initial record with my main government (id 128, if it changes anything) is set to 1 in the chär resource. If I look at the pilot log after starting a new pilot, this is indeed what I'm getting. However, first problem: I can see on the map that I'm considered a citizen - shouldn't that require a legal rating of 4, as the Bible claims?
Then, I tried creating a test mission which boost the rating by 1 (it's an autoabortable one with the "give payment on auto-abort flag set, if that changes anything), but it doesn't seem to have any effects. Or is it because the mission "status change" field gives out good/evil points and not legal record points, so I would need to run the mission ten (that gov's legal tolerance) times to get one more legal record point?
Then, I'm still not sure of what the necessary legal record field for missions refers too either - legal record or good/evil points?
My mission system depends heavily on records - I want many missions to become available when you reach a certain record, and I want those to match label changes as far as possible (ie, Citizen/Good Citizen/ect) to make it easier for the player to know when he has progressed enough to get the next one. So far, I'm having great difficulties getting it right...
