You want to change MaxAiCovenants in systems.gdb

I did this up real quick for anyone who lacks the technical know-how or is lazy. See attached.

Found it, thanks. I was searching only for "NumCovenants" :). During creation of the sector it either goes OK or crashes to the desktop immediately. (changed it in asset 1 & 3)

You would only need to change it in 3 since 3 overrides 1. And the method you used to mod the files isn't the best one to be using. Anytime you patch the game, assets003 (and systems.gdb within it) will be overwritten by the new data, and you'll have to go back and make the changes all over again. It's also much more difficult to get rid of a mod. It would be better to use the 'overrides' system. If you would like to learn how to do this, refer to this post here (http://www.soldak.com/forums/showpost.php?p=56609&postcount=2), and for plenty of examples you can refer to any of the other mods in the forum.

As for why your game is crashing, I'm not sure it has anything to do with the mod specifically. I tested out my version of the mod several times, and each new sector loaded up just fine. Have you tried the first challenge sector before (10 AI Factions in a medium sector)? Did that ever crash for you? If you haven't tried it, then test it a few times after removing your mod. If it crashes on the challenge sector without your mod, then you know it's not your mod. My guess would be to look at your system specs.

But if the challenge sector doesn't crash for you, then perhaps it is your mod. If this is the case, try my mod instead. I'm pretty sure my mod makes the exact same change as yours, but my mod works fine for me so possibly there might be some difference.

But I have a feeling your mod isn't the problem.

Guess you can, just need a lot of effort to do so... For example: there is no new custom ship models have been made yet. Also, this requires a lot of guessing, since there is no template...

Normal people can discuss this between themselves. It's the REAL forum Nazi's like you are immediately pushing the Report button. How about this point of view? :)
