While I certainly agree with your general notion there, I'd like to point out that some of the criticism about fractal hills is, that sometimes the look of them doesn't match the terrain too well, in a sense that a 100ft peak might look like a slight rolling hill or vise versa, which would be rather...

Indeed, WinXP usually is rather easy on those things. Are you by any chance sharing the computer (with everyone having his or her own account)? I could imagine that triggering an error like that, but as long as you can run it as administrator and that solves the problem I believe you rather shouldn'...

But the idea here with ship type or cargo/passenger is that the IA does not need to know of which group an enemy ship is part (He doesn't know for sure that it is a target. Ah, I see what you're getting at. Maybe the order should make them target every ship belonging to the same major class as the ...

Ahoy! I'd agree one or two additional commands to the squadron would come in handy and so do many others as - in different variants - it has been suggested more than once before. I personally don't think, though, that we have to make much of a distinction between cargo ships, passenger carriers and ...

The Geenee missile

I just thought I'd share this smirk I just realised: in Critical Mass there is a nuclear missile by the name of Geenee available. It was just brought to my attention again that a 1.5kt nuclear missile for air-to-air use produced in the US since the 1950s was codenamed 'Genie', which sounds terribly ...

That's the wiki mentioned above. I have to admit not being too deeply into modding myself, but maybe that helps you along.

It's very odd that you can't seem to locate your Data folder, because without it the game should not even be operational. Are you sure you are using a (fairly) recent version? Once you got your hands on those files I'm certain you'll that modding vehicles for example is as easy as eating pancakes: t...

G'day, My downloaded file of the whole pack for Windows is 12.9MB; it might be slightly off due to updates in the meantime, but that's the general area. Sean can't technically reset that counter, because it belongs to the company that takes care of the billing (and seems to mess up every once in a w...

In my experience they don't actually ignore the order, they're just having a hard time following it, mainly for two reasons: first, evasive manoeuvres take priority over your order (which makes some sense to me at least) and second, they can't see your steering arrow like you can't see theirs; they ...

I have not see a big difference
Fractal hills, for example? Or was 4.1 just the 'minor' update that included some more tank data?

Sorry to break it to you, but it seems all those problems you are having are actually more related to what you call 'Cheat Engine' than to the game itself. I suggest you take it to the authors of that. Money in the game actually works quite simple: ships cost you money once, you get refunded when yo...
