Hey people of Eclipse!
I am wondering if anyone else has had the same thoughts as I have about the Currency issues as I have… Ok, for starters:
- There is no real way to have a fluent, multicurrency game. (In the stores it makes you put in multiple options for goods and clutters the store; even if you have enough money, you may not have the right type; etc.).
- (The source code of the older versions pointed this out to me) There is no actual source code to be able to create your own Mod for Currency, I know because I have spent a few hours looking around the code and still haven’t found the codes.
To fix both these problems, and more, you guys could:
- Put a ModCurrency into the source code so that the currency can be automatically converted to the other currencies in the game (To do this, you would need to have a base currency that everything is bought off of, if you need any help with that then I can offer my services.).
- Create a Currency Editor in the game (Edits graphic, value, ETC…) so that the game knows how much the value of each type of currency, (say the base is copper which = 1, then the rest of the currency would follow suit, iron = .1, bronze = . 01, silver = .005, gold = .0005 ETC., now, you could have cooper be worth 100 for a base value), this would enable the price of something to have one price but be bought with different types of currency and you would be given change.
So, if you would like to see this in the game, see a modified version of this in the game, or don’t like the idea then please say why you would like it, how you would change it, or why you dislike it.
