artemis ini

Page history last edited by RyleyRA 2 years, 1 month ago Saved with comment

The artemis.ini file can be found in the installation directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Artemis by default). It can be modified to customize various aspects of the game. Holding down CTRL+SHIFT and the J key at any time during setup or gameplay will cause the artemis.ini file to be reloaded.

 

All customization options are of the form:

option name = value

 

Options may appear in a different order in the file than the order given here. Blank lines are ignored, and any lines starting with a semicolon (;) are ignored as comments. Each option should appear only once.  

 

Additionally, most customization options fall into one of two categories; server or client options. Server options will effect the server and any clients that connect to that server, where applicable. Client options will ONLY effect that client and other clients may set that option to a different value. Global options and Sound Effect options will only effect the machine (client or server) that they are set on.

As of Artemis 2.5, the energyCoeffJump option appears to be about 1/50 of its value in Artemis 2.4. This means that the value must be set to 45.0 to have the same energy cost for Jump Drive as earlier versions. You may wish to consider editing artemis.ini to correct this value, while waiting for it to be corrected in a future release. By way of comparison, a 50 km Jump that used to cost 450 energy now costs only 8.

 

The ability to set the damage and build rate for torpedo types was removed in 2.7, and returned in 2.7.2. The ability to edit Skaraan drone damage was also added, and although Torgoth drone damage was always editable in vesselData.xml, a modifier was added to raise drone damage overall. Drone speed can also now be edited, although it is still not possible to edit Skaraan drone range.

 

Note that unlike torpedoes, which only last for about 18 seconds, drone range only refers to how close an enemy must be to fire a drone, not how far that drone can travel to hit your ship. Drones do not appear to have a maximum time limit and can continue to follow your ship indefinitely if you use Warp or Jump to escape them.
