the peepeepoopoo mans TitanFramework

If you have having issues with manual install make sure you delete any previous versions (including jmm889901.titanframework) before updating

This is an experimental mod and any crash logs will be appreciated, i will aim to keep backwards compatability as much as possible to make updating optional

Confused with how to use the mod, have suggestions or found a bug, please DM me the_peepeepoopoo_man. on discord

framework for adding custom titans

Using the mod

To use the mod, install a compatible titan mod such as Archon or Chimera, Go to the titan loadout selection menu and select "Custom loadouts", Create a new loadout, within this loadout click the "Select Titan" button to bring up the titan selection.

what is a base titan?

A base titan is just the titan from which to get the persistent passives, animations, xp and various other things from.

Does framework break basegame persistence?

It should not, framework uses its own standalone persistence system built using safe IO

If persistence breaks for any reason simply go to Titanfall2\local_mod_data and remove every file, this will reset titanframework back to its base state, while preserving your vanilla loadouts

Debugging

To help debugging broken persistence data it can be helpful to run the command

titanFrameworkDevPrintsEnabled 1

Changelog ish

Now uses a fully custom persistence system for storing loadouts using local JSON instead of trying to use basegame persistence

This means:

. Unlimited titan loadouts

. Titans no longer have restrictions on how many passives they can load

. Titans can have arbitrary persistent vars allowing more or different changable values than would otherwise be allowed

This also leads onto the main new feature

Custom pilot equipment

Titanframework now supports custom custom grenades, tacticals and guns, this is done using overrides rathere than creating further loadouts just for modded content

Other notable features

Remade titan UI to facilitate all the new additions, Titans can now be accessed from the "Custom loadouts" footer button on the bottom of the titan menu
