Language file

Hopefully if you followed my earlier guiide (Making a simple BBS message tutorial), you should already have a working language file called 440009.xml in your X3/t folder. Now open up the file with your text editor and add id's 10, 11 and 12, your language file should look something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<language id="44">
<page id="999880" title="News reports" descr="0">

<t id="1">[author]Roguey[/author][title]Important news[/title]\nHello the x galaxy! im a new scripter posting here using the language files! Please be nice</t>

I pasted the whole of 440009.xml here encase you jumped my previous guide, or not. Id 1 wont be used in this example.

Once you have copy and pasted the above, we need to write a script to offer Salvage Insurance for sale and then make the trade if the player has enough money (of-course).

Next: Making an offer
