Tutorial How to Remove "Upkeep" Messages

esb

Because none of us are as cruel as all of us.
Not sure if the title is correct, but oh well.

This tutorial is how to remove the messages that you get by upkeeps (No Upkeep, Low Upkeep, and High Upkeep) and even add a message of your own!

Requirements:
The Frozen Throne

Instructions:

Open your Map
Go to Advanced>Gameplay Constants
Make sure "Use Custom "Gameplay Constants" is checked
Edit the following fields: (Might not be in the exact order)

Press Ok.
Go to Advanced> Gameplay Interface
Make sure "Use Custom Game Interface" is checked
Edit the following fields: (Are not in the right order)

Press Ok.
(The fields with text MUST have some sort of text(or a space). Else in game it will have the default text.
Results:


To remove the "100%", add '|cff0F1B28' at the end of your message. In my case it would be after 'Map's Coolness" Thanks to Evote for this find :D
So that there is a Line skip between "Made by esb" and "Contact me at" just CTRL + Enter. (¶ = CTRL + Enter)

I have been trying to remove the 100% in my map as well to no avail. You can get it to say 0% by always incurring a 100% tax rate even on no upkeep but there is still something there when you don't want it there. It's too bad you can't dynamically change it because then you could use it for something in gameplay like percentage of quests completed so it didn't look odd floating out in the middle of nowhere.

Yeah, although i think it might be editable in the MPQ. Dunno, didn't really bothered.

BUT: You can change Gold Income Rate to a certain number, and that could be Version Completition
So it could be Version Completition: 50% :p but it's really hard to tell how far away you are from a final version...
thats the only use i see people could use of that %.

I hate messing with MPQ's.. it's almost too much effort, especially with how powerful the basic editor is, heh.

Um... Do you mean the icons? Yeah, in Game Interface > "Icon - Gold/Lumber/Food"

And yeah, "100%" won't hurt anyone, come to think of it, you could add "Coolness: 100%" lol :p

Edit: Fixed

  • midnight8 midnight8:
    i may have some time, pretty sure I brought covid home from vegas, got tested today, will know for sure tomorrow or next day
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that sucks
  • jonas jonas:
    @midnight8 how is it looking
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, me, wife and her friend thaty traveled with us all have covid, seems to be winding down some for me at least. Felt like complete shit, been sleeping a lot, just bieng lazy as hell. I feel like that today has probably been like 11 or 12 days since exposure. Have not had any fever today, and have not taken any meds, so hopefully by monday or tuesday I will be good to go, sadly have passed it on to our teen son, I guess that was pretty much unavoidable
  • The Helper The Helper:
    hope you get to feeling better and get vaccinated my friend
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    I will at some point, but so many vaccinated people still getting it. One of the bands we watch in vegas, all 4 had been vaccinated and are now positive.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Symptoms?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think the symptoms are typically less severe if previously vaccinated.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    I have had all of the symptoms, taste is slightly starting to come back, but smell, no. Honestly, just been a little miserable, have never felt in any danger from it. Being trapped at home sucks. lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    meh, got a little fever again this morning, guess gonna be a few more days
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I went to Comicon this last weekend I hope I dont get it I feel fine and I am not vaccinated and did not wear a mask
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Comicon really was not packed though like it was in the past. I am not really worried though it was the most people I have been around in a year.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Still, getting vaccinated is a good idea. We're getting Delta variant spikes here in Boston.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not against vaccination at all I just have a serious procrastination problem I plan on getting vaccinated soon
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    was kinda same with me, I was gonna do it, and life got in the way.
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    we wore mask in some places, but at 118 degrees outside, little rough. :)
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah i had another friend in Vegas talking about that heat damn
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Well I do not think I got Covid from the Comicon
