How to edit automata?

4 posts in this topic Last Reply

Hello all,


     I'm certain that automata can be edited, as many people have talked about it, but i'm not sure how to do so. When i open the .dat in reader it doesn't read how it should. I would like to make freight train length longer. So if anyone can help me on editing to automata to do that, or sending me a link to a tutorial, that would be great. Thank you.





I have moved this topic to a more appropriate forum.

If you have the NAM, you need to edit whatever Automata controller you have installed (for instance NetworkAddonMod_Automata_Plugin_Radical_Automata24.dat). There's a single exemplar in there that has properties such as "Freight Train Length". The values for it are hexadecimal numbers, but if you enter a normal decimal number and hit "apply", reader will automatically convert it to hexadecimal (e.g. 16 will become 0x10). This particular property will need two values: minimum and maximum length.
