This is a list of the explored content within the save games. For learning to use this information, also have a look at Editing_Savegames!



Most of the following data has been explored by using a vanilla singleplayer savegame at turn 1 with following settings:

  • tech 1
  • small galaxy
  • irregular
  • no minors
  • impossible

At later turns there are additional files stored within the saves. These may have been partially discarded. For turn 1 saves, most unexplored data seems to be relatively unimportant and often can be zero! Please aware that some information might be incomplete or even incorrect.

So, after extracting a savegame with UltimateEditor you get quite a ton of files. Here's an overview about them and the hexcode they contain:

  • starID of homesystem

lists StarIDs of the homesystems of all races, if not available = FF 00

SphOfIn0 to SphOfIn4

hexview width: [GalaxyMapWidth]
relevance unclear
gives a view of the galaxy map for every empire
decreasing values around home system position

Some observations regarding the ownership claim and the sphere of influence value:

- sectors owned by an empire are only under that empire's influence
- non-membered minor race sectors can be under the influence of more than one empire
- disputed sectors are under the influence of at least two empires
- unclaimed sectors may be under influence of empires as well
- the value of the influence is not the deciding factor whether a sector is claimed or not, for example a sector with value 10 may or may not be claimed
- editing sector.lst claim data and setting empire influence in the sector to 0 will not remove the empire's claim of a disputed sector

ordInfo

hexview width: 84
Mostly unknown, includes peace proposals, system and fleet orders...

Each entry in this file contains two segments - a header and a body.

Header structure

Size of the header is constant for all entries and is 32 bytes.

It contains:

  • entry hash
  • turn of occurrence
  • raceID
  • order type
  • body size in bytes


Detailed structure:

Offset 0x0000 to 0x0003 = entry hash - unknown hashing function, applies either to the body only or the whole entry (exluding the hash)
Offset 0x0004 to 0x0007 = turn of occurrence
Offset 0x0008 to 0x000B = raceID
Offset 0x000C to 0x000F = unknown
Offset 0x0010 to 0x0013 = order type (0 - system order, 2 - fleet order, others unknown)
Offset 0x0014 to 0x001B = unknown
Offset 0x001C to 0x001F = size of the body in bytes

Size of the body depends on type - it might even vary independent of type. Body size of orders for fleets and systems seems to be 52 bytes which together with the header amounts to 84 bytes per entry.

Fleet order body structure (type 2)

Contains:

  • target sector row
  • target sector column
  • source sector row
  • source sector column
  • fleetID
  • scan range ?
  • map speed ?


Detailed structure:

Offset 0x0000 to 0x0003 = unknown
Offset 0x0004 to 0x0007 = target sector row
Offset 0x0008 to 0x000B = target sector column
Offset 0x000C to 0x000F = source sector row
Offset 0x0010 to 0x0013 = source sector column
Offset 0x0014 to 0x001B = unknown
Offset 0x001C to 0x001D = fleetID
Offset 0x001E to 0x002B = unknown
Offset 0x002C to 0x002F = scan range ?
Offset 0x0030 to 0x0033 = map speed ?

The source sector row and column mark the sector that the fleet was in when it initially received the order not the current location. For ships terraforming planets the source location is usually set to row -1 and column -1.
