* Misuse of the FakeConsole commands may result in crashes
* Filling the cheatbox with spaces makes the game crash. I don't have a clue why...
* Galactic Conquest's Versus is completely untested (but should work...)
* Displays a warning if you have over 500 missions (The original game can only handle 500 modded missions. It crashes with FATAL when attempting to play a mission after about the first 500)
* A few people will not be able to see any of the new strings. The known fix is in the 'Installation Guide.txt'.
* FakeConsole commands built into the exe always turn pink when clicked no matter if they worked or not. The section description commands turn pink too.
* It takes a second at the start of each map to disable award effects (if set to disabled). An AI bot has an extremely low chance of gaining an award in this period.
* There is a bug in displaying the preview video when switching between the MP and SP map selection screens. The preview video may not play until a map with a different video is selected.
* If a map directly sets the side selection names, the team buttons will no longer flash when selected.
* A couple of weapon icons are not in their correct locations. Sorry.
* The Clone Commander's Paulodron is untextured.
Important Notes For Modders:
* The FakeConsole command 'Code Console' lets you type and run Lua code directly ingame
* Space Assualt's name changed to 'modename.name.spa-assault' from 'modename.name.assault'
* Hero Assualt's name changed to 'modename.name.hero-assault' from 'modename.name.elimination'
* Voice over errors mostly gone from the modtool log
* Custom game mode and era names, icons, and descriptions are supported. Meaning, you can have your map set the text on its game mode checkbox no matter the mode.
* The ingame variable '__thisMapsCode__' should contain the current map's 3-char code (will always be lowercase). The variable is nil if the code couldn't be detected or has yet to be detected.
* The ingame variable '__thisMapsMode__' should contain the current map's loaded layer/game mode (will always be lowercase). The variable is nil if the mode couldn't be detected or has yet to be detected.
* The uf_processPlayers() function allows you to get the names of the ingame players (see 'Using Ingame Player Data.txt')
* See the howtos docs for more info on how to use the v1.3's new modding related features
