hi, so, with The_Gnat's help, i made a singleplayer port of this mod. it is in the addon category called 'Other'

note: the singleplayer version doesn't have the xp sharing option. but to be honest, most of the allies you ever see in campaigns are controlled by AI anyway.

Good, it is nice to have this in campaigns, it makes it a lot easier to advance units. :D

Hello, i was just wondering if you have done something to allow XP to carry over to the next scenario in your singleplayer version? :D EDIT: Yep you have !!! :D

EDIT: also could you make it so that you can start with up to 100 xp in your bank. I figure that if people want to start with more, let them :D

Hi Forest dragon, in an effort to set a new record for posts in a row :whistle: i am wondering would you like me to try to convert the mod to 1.13? If i do unfortunately i can not give any guarantees of timing or success ;)

hi guys! so, i updated XP Bank/it's SP variant. this time with another large feature: advancement filtering! it's a togglable option in 'XP Bank' menu. If this option is enabled, then if a unit levels up normally (without using the 'Withdraw' option) then the player whose unit it is gets option whether to let the unit level up, or deposit all it's exp. this can help prevent exp accidentally being wasted on something unwanted, and prevent the need to constantly deposit from all units. NOTE: you will still see the advancement choosing option before this option appears, but it only matters if you decide not to deposit exp from the unit. this will give players even more control over their units' exp

I like that idea (also recently I haven't had any time to work on the 1.13 xp bank... but I haven't given up yet :) )

update:
-ported to 1.13 (keep in mind that XP Bank SP doesn't appear in the singleplayer modifications menu, and still can only be toggled by installing/uninstalling, since I don't yet know how to make sp mods)
-the xp bank menu now won't show up on a unit if there are at least 2 enemy units next to him/her. This way the ability should be a bit less abusable. (this applies both for the 1.13 version, and the 1.12 version)

EDIT: the mod currently has a huge bug in 1.13. I'll soon release an update to fix it and0 merge XP Bank/XP Bank SP into a single mp/sp mod

In 1.13 you actually do not have to "create" an SP modification. Any modifications which are not specifically MP only will automatically be available for SP.

So just create a modification:

Code: Select all

[modification]
    id=XP_Bank_Mod
    name="XP Bank Mod"
    description=""
    require_modification=yes

    [options]
        [slider]
            id=XP_bank_start
            default=0
            min=0
            max=96
            step=8
            name="XP bank head-start"
            description="you get some exp in your bank at the beginning."
        [/slider]
    [/options]

		{XP_BANK_SP}
		{XP_BANK_EVENTS_LOAD}
[/modification]
And that should appear at the bottom of the campaigns list so that you can check or uncheck it :)

So just create a modification:
I already done that, but thanks anyway. btw, announcement: I'll temporarily delete the add-on from the 1.13 add-on server, until I fix a bug that prevents the mod from properly working.
