equipment.plist 'bug'?

Post by Smivs »

I was just scanning the core game's equipment.plist when I spotted this

Code: Select all

	(	/* Thargoid equipment, incompatible with non-thargoid ships. Not buyable because of its TL. */
		100, 1000, "Thargon",
		"thargon",
		"Alien drone ship.",
		{
			strict_mode_compatible = true;
			available_to_player = false;
		}
	),
	(	/* Thargoid equipment, standardised name. Incompatible with non-thargoid ships. Not buyable because of its TL. */
		100, 1000, "Thargon",
		"EQ_THARGON",
		"Alien drone ship.",
		{
			strict_mode_compatible = true;
			available_to_player = false;
		}
	),
It just struck me as odd. What is the function of the first entry?

Backwards compatibility with (potential) old OXPs.

Ah, I see! And there was me thinking it might be a typo...
