Hey there, I am looking to expand FOC gameplay by adding a fourth team and/or another AI player.

As you may know, FOC limits us to 3 teams (not factions but teams) and 3 AI players in any skirmish gametype. Is it possible to expand on this?

For additional Teams, some XML and Text editing would be necessary, and you would only be able to have more teams on custom maps, but it seems possible. For additional AI, I don't know what puts a limit on them in the first place, so I have no Idea.

Hmmm, well in terms of adding a fourth team, which XML files would need editing?

And MULTIPLAYER_STRUCTURE_MARKERS.XML to add new teams.

Alright, I have created a new faction out of the pirates, they are just a test thing, they have a starbase and a few units which I can build. I have copied the TEAM_XX markers in both MULTIPLAYER_STRUCTURE_MARKERS.XML and MARKERS.xml and created TEAM_03_XXX.

now, when I go into the game I see the pirates faction but when I choose the team I only see Team 1, Team 2 and Team 3. How do I go about adding Team 4 to the in game dropdown list?

On a side note, when I open the petro map editor, I cannot add the Team_03 marker to my map.

FYI, I am using a batch file and a directory in the mods folder to launch my mod. Do I need to move the MARKERS.XML to the data/xml folder?

Thanks for all the help and patience guys, All I need to do now is figure out how to add Team 4 to the drop down list and I will be set to go.

Its automatically added if you make an entry for it in Factions.xml

Just make sure you have given it a string name in the DAT editor.

I think you misunderstand my question.

I have 4 factions:

Rebel Empire Consortium Pirate

I have a map with 4 Teams with this layout:

1 4 3 2

However, In the pregame lobby, when I select the drop down list to pick my Team, Team 1, Team 2 and Team 3 appears but Team 4 does not. All the factions work, but Team 4 is not an option in the drop down list.
