Data File Modding
From Star Ruler
A significant portion of Star Ruler's modding consists of editting data files. Here you can find a list of the various data file types in the game.
|Data file type||Files loaded|
|Game Effects||Game Data/Effects/*.txt|
|Sub Systems||Game Data/Sub Systems/*.txt|
|Empire Defaults||Game Data/Script Data/empire_defaults.xml|
For each data file type (as ordered above) all files are loaded according to the above table. Overloaded files (files of the same name, in the same relative path) are only loaded for the first mod in the derivation order, starting with the chosen mod, and ending at a mod that does not derive, or the base game. Files of the same type and from the same mod can be loaded in any order.
