You rule, Murteas. Seriously, my gratitude is boundless. Thanks for putting in so much effort for the player community. Much as I love the devs for their hard work, I really, really don't care for text editing. I've done some 5th gen programming, and it pains me a great deal.
I don't know what to think about the devs' decision on this, but your decision to put together a user friendly editor on your own, despite the complexity, makes me wonder...
Anyway, thanks, and good luck. Even if it winds up being a terminal beta editor, it'll be better than diddling with notepad.
Oh, and have some karma. This is some serious 'good deeds' stuff.
Thanks for the kind words. I imagine that the Stardock team is going to release something that will make this mod obsolete, but I thought I could put something together for us to use until we get an official editor.
Please don't mistake this tool for release quality. Some cool things that we could add for example: a real editor would dynamically read in all the mod files and allow you to use your modded traits, in the editor, as well as show a model with the colors you chose, and would allow you to see what logo you are chosing.
All those things are possible with the resources we've been given, but they aren't in this tool yet. If for some reason we don't get an official editor, I plan on adding those features.
