Infocards Separate But Can't Find Reference (Solved)

I've been used to how DLLs work for a while now, and something's been bothering me, though until now it hasn't been a major issue.

I've noticed that some things, such as bases and equipment, have a separate DLL number reference for their detailed descriptions and info, but I can never find this referenced in the base or equipment program files.

Before now the only issue with this was a base that was pretty nondescript so I ended up not writing that sort of info for it, but now i'm modding an additional level of thruster into the equipment table and would ideally like to give a description. I can't find where this would be referenced from, though, even though I know the numbers of all the info-cards for the vanilla thrusters, since the main table for thrusters and the like just has the name number copy-pasted as the info-card number.

I'm assuming this is just a piece of info stored in an INI file I haven't looked at yet. If so, i'd be grateful if someone could point me at it.

Infocardmap.ini in the Interface folder is where the magic occurs.

Bare statistics are directed by the base/planet entry in the whatever-system_01.ini file as ids_info = xxxxx

When you land on the base the visit flag changes and you can then access the bigger info card which is mapped in infocardmap.ini as

map = (system_ids_info)xxxxx, (bigger_infocard)xxxxx

I think there was a tutorial on this in the archive, just search for infocardmap

Thank you. This is exactly what I was looking for. I should be fine without the tutorial now that I know where the file is, but it's good to have it there if I run into any problems.
