Hello

There aren't any servers with a ruleset I like. Myself and some friends are going to host our own private server. We are in the process of setting it up. I have been able to make most of the modifications I want, but I can't figure out how to change the skill tree type used by Jedi. I would love for people to be able to choose, but if it is either or then that is fine. We can just figure out which we like better.

Can someone tell me how to change Jedi to use the old style trees that cost 250 skill points for the novice box instead of the default newer style?

Thanks

I was able to get the alternate tree to show in the skill list by unchecking the god only and hidden in the skills.iff file. The issue I'm having now is that the jedi trainer does not offer to train these skills. I'm not sure what I need to modify to get the trainer to offer the skills, or if I need to go to a different trainer.

I also changed the requirement in the drop-down from none to Jedi.

I was able to figure this out. I'm not sure of the exact steps required because I changed a lot of stuff before I finally got it working.

The only 2 things you need to modify are the skills.iff and the trainerdata.lua

bin/scripts/screenplays/trainers/trainerData.lua

In trainerdata you need to add all of the skills from the alternate jedi tree to one of the trainers. I added them to the jedi trainer. In the skills.iff I unchecked god only from the alternate trees. I also copied the prerequisite from the normal Jedi novice boxes to the padawan novice box. This checks your force progression and allows you to train the novice padawan box if you have the padawan box in force progression. The line I changed to do this is 861:

force_discipline_light_saber_novice, SKILLS_REQUIRED column: force_title_jedi_rank_02

I don't think any of my other changes are required. You may want to add check boxes to the is_profession column of the skills.iff file. I don't think anything is checked by default. If you put a check box in "jedi" it will show up in the top section of the skill list. If you check "jedi_padawan" it will show in the bottom section. I also changed the jedi_state_required from none to jedi. I'm not sure if that is necessary.

One of the problems I have noticed is that it will allow you to train in both light and dark jedi at the same time. I'm still working to resolve that.

Thanks

I got it to work by setting up the preclusion skill in the skills.iff. For example, the jed_dark_side_journeman_novice, will not allow you to train if you have already trained light.

Good idea,

My fix was to set the skills required to light or dark rank member. It required someone choosing that tree type to go through the knight trials before progressing past padawan. I like your method better :)
