  • Changing/Modifying values of Picks in MOO2

    Recently we have begun playing MOO2 after a long lull.

    Does anyone know of a program, editor, or trainer that can modify the point values of the various "picks" when choosing/building a custom race?

    In other words, is there a way to alter the numbers to make some of the choices less costly pointwise.

    It has been about 6 Years since we last installed M002, so any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

      P-K,

      Thanks for the information and awesome program!

      We are trying to beef up our custom race to be more competitive against the computer foes. After playing MOO3, MOO2 seems a much more challenging and formidable opponent!

      Does changing the custom race data allow the computer similiar advantages in "picking" or "fortifying" its races, or do these changes only affect our custom race?

      Thanks again for your prompt and informative post!

      Unlike many MOO2 hacks, this one has a windows interface and works superbly.

        No need to do that, just use one of the many strong races.

          Has anyone had the game screw up after you modify the values? I used it once and it worked fine, but now I can't pick custom with out the game crashing. I tried to replace racestuf.lbx but that didn't solve the problem.

            also you can edit the save file to make your uber race. +100 bonus to food production/industry/science with all the good traits.

              If you make a custom race with too many picks, the game will remember this, and crash the game the next time you pick "custom race." This might be your problem, Moo2hack.

              If that's the problem, go to your Moo2 folder, and delete the file "lastrace.rac".

                Any way this can be done with a Mac?

                  If Corion 2 doesn't work with the mac then you'd need to get the save file format from somewhere and write your own program for it. I could probably do that, provided that the save file formats are the same for both versions(probably are).

                    erm to clarify, I could get you the save file format information that you'd want, not write the program, I don't have a compiler that will work for macs.

                      PickHack and other popular tools for "modding" MoO 2 don't seem to work under Win7. :/
                      Can anyone confirm this, or there's something wrong with my machine/my game copy/myself?

                        Never used PickHack, but if it is an old Win95 type app, it won't work in Win7. If it is a Dos app, then you should be able to get it to work in DosBox.
