What does this mean?

+1

I found it in the FACTIONS.XML file

In the beginning of the game right after the raid on Kuat ship yards, the rebels tech number is 1 not 0, after the Kessel rescue and conversation between MonMothma and Antilles its jumps to 2, when I steal the first set of tech from the Imperials it goes to 3, when I steal the last set, it stays at 3. is it supposed to go to 4? Later on after a few more missions, the game tells me I can go steal more tech but I try to drag R23PO over an enemy planet and they can't steal anything. I'm am yet again confused.

Plus I am using the Absolute Enhancement Mod 4.5 for the game which adds a whole lot of crap like the Jedi,Sith and a Jedi temple(and maybe a stih temple I don't know) In the SPECIALSTRUCTURES.XML file it says 3 which implies that the rebels or imperials have to be at at least tech level 3 to build the temple. I go to my rebel game and lo and behold, no jedi temple when I'm at tech level 3, so I go to the specialstructure.xml file and change tech level to 2, and sure enough a temple can be built...I don't understand why that happens. I build the temple and no jedi appears in the unit box area. I go back again and change it to tech level 3 as it was originally, no temple.

If anyone can help me out in clarifying some of my questions that would be great, If you want me to be more specific then I can try that too.

the mean that that line wont be noticed in the XML.

you dont need to worry bout the whole "0-3 instead of 1-4" thing.

The rebels start with tech 0 because they need to make all the steals to officially be on tech level 1 then so on and so forth.... so when it says tech level 3 its either tech 4 or 5 in game... i cant remember

the empire starts on tech 1 so they can build the building to tech to further their tech research.

this is something few people ever edit the only time i would see this edited is if they were doing a TOTAL redo of the game and makin a new total conversion

But that's the confusing thing, whenever I play as the Rebels, even during first mission when assaulting the Kuat shipyards, the game says I have tech level 1 and not 0. I think its because of this line +1

But why should it do that for the rebels?
