Missions with Custom Fractions.

Hello, I've started playing the game again. After a break of over 10 years. Unfortunately there is still no mod like I would like it to be. So I start all over again to write a mod myself.

At that time I also modded and then I knew it was possible again.
I have the problem that there is only 1 mission on my base.
I can't find a tutorial about missions.

I have made a Custom Fraction and a New System.

Here the Zone's from system ini:
Quote:
[Zone]
nickname = Zone_HS01_destroy_vignette_01
pos = -20441, 0, -2151
shape = SPHERE
size = 10000
sort = 99.500000
vignette_type = open

[Zone]
nickname = Zone_HS01_destroy_vignette_02
pos = -9780, 0, -14344
shape = SPHERE
size = 10000
mission_type = unlawful
sort = 99.500000
vignette_type = open


Here from mbase.ini:
Quote:
[MBase]
nickname = HS01_01_Base
local_faction = fp7_siriusalliance_grp
diff = 2
msg_id_prefix = gcs_refer_base_HS01_01_Base

[MVendor]
num_offers = 2, 4

[BaseFaction]
faction = fp7_siriusalliance_grp
weight = 100
offers_missions = true
mission_type = DestroyMission, 1.687200, 38.983860, 100

Could be numerous things, you will need to give us additional information:
-The base is too far away from the vignettes, so some are not used
-The faction has no enemys that can spawn in the area/system
-The faction has no enemys
-The faction is setup incorrectly in empathy.ini?
-Some of the missions that are generated are too difficult for your level
-The enemy factions have no ships for the mission difficulty
-Your group is not present in vigntetteparams.ini
-something I didn't think of

@Cpt_Rei_Fukai i have sent you a pm.

The base is too far away from the vignettes, so some are not used
- the base is less than 30k away from the mission zones


The faction has no enemys that can spawn in the area/system
- I made a zone in the mission zone where the enemies spawn

The faction has no enemys
- The faction has enemies. I can do a mission. But there is only one. Sometimes no mission either.

The faction is setup incorrectly in empathy.ini?
I do not think so. Because I can do a mission.

Quote:

[RepChangeEffects]
group = fp7_siriusalliance_grp
event = object_destruction, -0.05
event = random_mission_success, 0.1
event = random_mission_failure, -0.06
event = random_mission_abortion, -0.09
empathy_rate = fp7_siriusalliance_grp, 0.2
empathy_rate = fp7_phantom_grp, -0.4

[RepChangeEffects]
group = fp7_phantom_grp
event = object_destruction, -0.05
event = random_mission_success, 0.1
event = random_mission_failure, -0.06
event = random_mission_abortion, -0.09
empathy_rate = fp7_siriusalliance_grp, -0.2
empathy_rate = fp7_phantom_grp, 0.4


Some of the missions that are generated are too difficult for your level
-I tested it, I gave myself a maximum of money. So I was level 89 but no change.

The enemy factions have no ships for the mission difficulty
- Here is my npcships.ini entry.

Quote:
[NPCShipArch]
nickname = maverickp_d1-19
loadout = fp7_maverickp
level = d1
ship_archetype = maverickp
pilot = pilot_military_med
state_graph = FIGHTER
npc_class = unlawful, class_fighter, d1, d2, d3, d4, d5, d6, d7, d8, d9, d10, d11, d12, d13, d14, d15, d16, d17, d18, d19


Your group is not present in vigntetteparams.ini
- I added my fraction from the base wherever li_n_grp was. Because I don't understand vignetteparams correctly.

Like I said, we need information, without it we can't help you.
As it turns out you actually have two custom factions fighting each other, with custom ships and npcs, inside a custom system, etc.


The empathy.ini entries of each faction should contain every other faction but not itself!

vignetteparams.ini defines which factions offer which mission types like assassinate, destroy base, ...

Additional things I found in old posts:
-The factions should be hostile to each other in initialworld.ini
-Both factions should be spawned in the mission area, as some missions need friendly ships.

Things you can try:
Look at FLSpew
Scan with FLScan II
Replace things with known working ones to narrow down the error(factions/systems/bases/npcs...)
