Good for you. I've been happy since I moved from Tanscuis to Randmax.Gilgamesh wrote:I'm using EV, Tanascuis and now I'm finally getting converted to Randmax.
Use the following to randonize planets FC's.Gilgamesh wrote:Tanascuis does some things that Randmax does not. I like Randmax better for the planetary stuff, but I use Tanascuis to make use of the warp wells, check for errors, assign random fcs, etc.
I still can't quite get Randmax to run the planet *exactly* the way I want it to, but I'm getting better....
Randmax is built into EchoView. When you run the randgen, and then in EchoView in the config you have to check the Allow Autobuild Support. Then you will see RandMax under utilities just like SB Plus and PWrap. You can even edit the randmax.ini global settings this way too for that particular game.(you still need to add in FC's for planets so it wont randamize the FC's)Gilgamesh wrote:It happens automatically when I run Tanascuis. All you have to do is select it as an option while you're doing everything else. Like Randmax, select it once and it stays.
What we (I) need is tanascuis and randmax built into Echoview. Does somebody want to get to work on that?
I understand now. I would love to find a way to modify EchoView to move ships and make turn.Gilgamesh wrote:I use Echoview to set up my randmax parameters. It's a hang sight nicer than editing the ini in notepad, and I can check out the minerals/temp/natives to see what I want to do with that particular planet.
It would be good if all this can be done in one place. Right now I read the messages, check out the battles, move my ships and build new ships at the bases in Winplan, checking in with EV all the while to see what happened before, who owns that planet I'm going to next turn, etc. Then I update my planets in EV to add any new planets that I want to handle differently from the standard, then I run Randmax, then I go into Tanascuis to do the warp wells and FCs, run the check, and finally back to Winplan to make the turn. It would be great if all that could be done from the same interface, but not a big deal.
I'm finding randmax is a real timesaver and worth the extra steps.
That's true but I just copy and paste from the documentation into the list of "don't change" fcs. Once and done - gotta love it!Shardin5 wrote:

Remember you still have to use that notepad to enter in all those silly Planet FC's for all the different Addon's.
Why not make a master Randmax.ini file, keep it in your Randmax directory and copy into each new game directory?Gilgamesh wrote:That's true but I just copy and paste from the documentation into the list of "don't change" fcs. Once and done - gotta love it!
I thought about removing pop, but I captured a klingon ship with trg before. Very proud of that SB, and boy was the Klingon PissedCherek wrote:I deleted all the ship specific special FC's codes.
