View Full Version : Data Converting Process compared to 06 to 07

Mainly for Adam, Will it be easier or harder to convert mods from 07 to 08 then it was 06 to 07? Why or why not?

Will an editor be released so that people can start working on writing real-world databases before the game comes out?
I am pleased to be able to announce that TEW08 comes complete with an in-built TEW07->TEW08 database converter. Therefore, when the game is released, you can literally plug your favourite TEW07 database in, have it converted in a matter of seconds, and go straight into a new game with it. Obviously some editing will need to be done on the database to achieve optimal results (i.e. to take advantage of new additions), but you will instantly get a playable database out of it. Therefore, there will be no waiting after the release of the game until the first real world database is available.
Since Adam is using words like "instantly" and "no waiting", I guess it'll be easier. Nothing has been announced so far (other than the personality matrix, but even that has generic settings, so the existing personality types could be converted to those...) that would hinder converting a database too much.
Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean there isn't a database-destroying addition around the corner :p Seems unlikely though.

As D-Lyrium quoted from the pinned FAQ, "you can literally plug your favourite TEW07 database in, have it converted in a matter of seconds, and go straight into a new game with it." should give a pretty clear indication of how easy it is.

that's nice. It'll certainly make things easier on me with the real world mod "TEW Infinity" that I'm working on.
