New Merc Spreadsheet for 1.13 Rel. 7609[message #338505]
||Mon, 22 December 2014 14:54 |
||Although there are several merc spreadsheets linked from various threads, they all seem somewhat out-of-date.
Please find below the link to a spreadsheet generated from the current xml files of stable release 7609.
This is still work in progress, next steps will be an explanation tab and revision history. As soon as various missing info (please see below) will be available it will be included as well
There are some oddities I came across while preparing this spreadsheet.
Disability ids 8 and 9 are not listed in the comment section of MercProfiles.xml. Based on older information, provisionally assigned 8=deaf and 9=shortsighted
Lance and Turtle both have =0
Robot has =7
Shank learns to like Ivan, but =0
Darrel Jr and Alish Perkopoulos are flagged as RPCs, although not recruitable in-game
John Kulba, Elio, Juan, Wahan use -1 for many merc relationship entries (buddy1-5, hated1-5). Assumed to be the same as 255.
Gaston and Stogie have weekly and bi-week salary entries although they are hired via MERC.
Some Town attachments seem strange. Assuming index numbers are relating to cities.xml:
Mike and Hamous are linked to Omerta
Dynamo is linked to Grumm
Shank is linked to Meduna
Iggy is linked to Balime
Blood hates South Africans,
Static hates Swiss,
Conrad hates Americans,
but all with CareLevel = 0
Gary Roachburn, Raffi, Sparky have background "Placeholder"
John Kulba (in his merc role, not as tourist) has no background assigned.
The comment line in backgrounds.xml indicates that he should use background 195, but that's only a placeholder entry either. However, his is 195, so this value was probably transposed somehow.
He also does not have a single skill trait under New Skills System.
(Neither does Raffi, but I assume this to be intentional)
As mentioned above, I'm still looking for additional information to include. I would be grateful if someone could provide (or point me in the right direction to) the formulae for repair points; doctoring points; interrogation points; training, teaching and studying points

edit: grammar and some addtional info on John Kulba
