I have 2 questions which should both be pretty simple...

1) Where is the XML line located to change the amount of time it takes to research the next tech level? I'm editing the ACM mod for personal use and would like to know if anyone knows which file it's in.

2) I want to change a blaster projectile to a blue color like in the Clone Wars. What values for the color coding under Projectile_Laser_Color would achieve this?

Thanks for the help...

1) Check the upgrades.xml file 2) You can find many values here: Colors: 216 BROWSER SAFE COLOR CHART courtesy of artist, MURPHY Fine Arts.

Wow that color chart is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks man!

I still cant seem to find the Tech upgrade time. I'm trying to change it for Galactic Conquest (i dont think i mentioned that before, sorry) and in the UpgradeObjects.xml it just has it for skirmish.

I believe that for GC its the Build_Cost and Build_Time tags in the space station itself, not sure though. Just look for something like that.

Those just changed the time and cost of the space station, not the next Tech Level

ralpho just change the X to your desired # and that should do it cause everytime you build something it goes by time, so if u change the build time it should change the time by which u want the station to upgrade to the next level.

Okay so you're telling me that the space station build time and cost DO affect the time and cost of the next tech level? Because last time I edited those lines all they did were alter the amount of time / money it took to build the next space station and not the actual tech level. I will give it another try so we'll see how it works....

Okay, Garcia17, I just tried it out and that actually changed the time / cost for skirmish battles only. I'm looking to change it for galactic conquest... Any ideas?
