    Some questions about T2 and TG dromed

    First, what are the limits (of NewDark) regarding objects, cells etc? Also what is the command in Dromed to check on what you have so far? I'm getting some mysterious crashes here and there and want to see if I've bumped into some limit or another.

    Second, I was wanting to use TG dromed to get into one of my fan mission saves (to give myself a nice boost in some of my inventory so I can explore some more) However I can't seem to load it in TGold Dromed without having some sort of crash-how do I fix that and edit a savegame? Also where can I find the file I need to edit to change the window size? I can find it for T2-but not for T1.

    This is literally the first thing listed in the included modders_notes.txt.

    -The monolog after optimize will give some informations about cell counts.

    Watch out for this lines
    Epsilon is 1.e-004
    File has 21 cells.
    Allocations: 22
    Min: -544. -547.75 -25.
    Max: 247. 813.5 125.

    -The monolog after running pathfinding database will give you some informations about path cells.

    -The command info_window will give some informations about object usage and so on.

    -Write the resolution for DromEd window in user.cfg
    Install the DromEd Toolkit. It's also available for T1

    Some contest missions are very big. Edit dark.cfg

    ; object counts
    obj_min -18192
    obj_max  8184 
    max_refs 47740
    And patch DromEd.exe with LAA (already patched version)

    Thank you for your help Unna-I'll go through the info this week and see where things stand on my current project.
