Adding Item Descriptions

Anything a player can buy in Vega Strike can have a text description. These are contained in the Master Part List file.

Master Parts List File

The Master Part List is a csv (comma separated values) text file which can be edited with a good text processing program.



Steps to add a new item

  • Open the master_part_list.csv file in a spreadsheet application and, if you are adding a new item, add a new line containing the required number of columns, separated by commas - "," as explained here:
    • The file column contains the unit name as specified in units.csv
    • Fill in the upgrade, cargo, or starship category, e.g. "upgrades/Sensors/Confed".
    • Fill the numbers for base price, mass, and volume.
    • Fill the discription field with your description. To have a picture show up next to your description, preface the description with a texture (square, powers of two sides (16,64,128,256,etc)) in the following format: @path/to/texture.png@, where the path to texture starts from the data/textures folder.
  • Save the file as a csv file.


FIXME What role has the file data/units/units_description.csv?

Example row

"file","categoryname","price","mass","volume","description"

"IntaTouch","Entertainment/Aera",50,0.01,1,
"@cargo/cargo-hud.png@A tactile simulator that provides an Aera with relaxing sensations."
