After reading about the alternate laser weapon research order in the Extender, I started thinking of what could be done with the research tree and came up with something I feel is pretty good.
Problem is, I can't find any resource about where project prerequisites are defined. Neither Ufopaedia's articles on RESEARCH.DAT nor Zombie's executable table are forthcoming with that critical piece of information. The Extender's source code is no help either, as the latest-released version of the source code doesn't have the alternate laser research yet. Can anyone help?
In case anyone cares, this is what I'm trying to do (forgot the Hyperwave Decoder, it's immediately after UFO Navigation).
If this will be worked out somehow, its one of THE coolest mods ever.
I'm all for it if it can be done.... A kingdom for the XCOM source code!
Or Tycho who could perhaps incorporate this into the Extender.... Nobody seems to know where he's at, I hope he'll stop by soon and at the very least, releases the source for the Extender, there's always people able and willing to get onto this sort of projects if just given the tools.
