    The Psyence Mod

    ("psyence" pronounced as "science")


    Hello TPT community.

    This mod is a revisitation of the Realistic Science Mod. I worked on a few versions of its successor in C++, but eventually I decided I missed the old one, so I will not be releasing URSM++ version 4.0.1. Instead, I went back to my old source and fixed many bugs and things that were wrong. For instance, there will be no more black holes created upon nuclear fusion, protons plus electrons now makes hydrogen, and NUKE/CYST has had a huge update. These changes are just a few of what I have been working on recently. There will be many suprises yet to come. I am finishing up on fixing the most obvious bugs for a 5.0.1 release, then I will proceed with periodic updates with the minor bugs. Now, some of you may be wondering why I switched back to the old C source. This is because I like it better and I feel more comfortable programming in that environment. Please do not post on here telling me to update the source and make it open certain saves. I am also well aware that the old version did not work for most people. This issue is being worked on, and I will try my best to fix it, but I still do not know what is going on. This next release, however, should work for most people.

    What do you mean, "Photons will now decay into energy if they are not moving fast enough."

    Decay into what form of energy? Are they not already electromagentic energy?

     Yes, I mean pure energy. As in pressure in TPT's case.

    And now its up! Yes!

    EDIT: Crashes, Immediately.

             Problem Event Signature: "APPCRASH"

    Also, there doesnt appear to be a icon for the program either.

     I know the icon issue, I will see what I can do, but I am still not sure why the thing crashes... I will look at it later

    It crashes immediately. Since the C++ version worked perfectly, as well as RScience 2.2.1 and earlier, this suggests that there is a serious problem in the code somewhere, or in the compiler.

    I think your compiler is just broken. No idea what's wrong with it, it's just not doing something right, since most of your mods don't work for most people. I got some error like "illegal cpu instruction", I wonder if it's inserting some odd / broken instruction in there.

    Also i'm not sure why with c++ it would start working. If you haven't tried reinstalling the compiler, try it again. Also maybe I have some ideas of what to change in the makefile that might fix it.

    I did compile this for you though:
    Compiled for windows on linux. It is a legacy (non sse2) version. It might not work on windows xp but i'm not sure.
    It was much easier to get it working this time, than the nightmare last time ... visual studio was not a good choice lol.

    Oh, also I noticed that PROT crashed the game. It's these broken for loops:
    for (rx>2; rx>3; rx++)
    for (ry>2; ry>3; ry++)

    that should be for (rx=-2; rx<3; rx++)

     I was hoping we could avaoid that this time, I am actuallly searching back in the old threads to what release started crashing it, then I will redo everything I have done since then. I remember how everyone used to be waiting intently for releases, and now the mods' fanbase seems empty.

    @jacob1 (View Post)

     Thanks, I will look into this right away. Do you know why the icon is missing in my release?

     Mod works, thanks to jacob1. However blue matter plus red matter even 1x1 pixels will crash game. I'm really enjoying the mod good work firefreak. Also, insanity? Lol get on skype sometime.
