Re: [dockscreen request]

stCLMapper is just the station the data is stored on, it could be set to any station or ship type, and clChangeSystemOrder is just the unid of the screen I was using for testing from within the captain's log. I stripped out the dependencies and changed the variable and function names to make sense. ...

Re: [dockscreen request]

I have a screen that will let the user order a list of star system nodes (from the captain's log), it shouldn't be too hard to modify to do what you want. I'll see what I can do with it in the 30 minutes before the library closes. ok, here's a proof of concept: I thought there was a way to get an it...

Re: [New Mod] Abandoned Station Renamer

You could use onGlobalPaneInit and scrAddAction to add the rename action it to any dockscreen whose source is a station, without overwriting any dockscreens.

Re: Armor HUD graphics question

does the game treat black as being transparent?
Yes, anything black on the image is not drawn, though I believe you can change the color that is drawn transparent in the image tag.

The game does support 8 bit masks that allow transparency, png's no, but I have never used the former personally.

Re: [tool] Sprite Sheet Generator

If that's so, then isn't the process I outlined with gimp perfectly good, once the facings are generated? It will definitely work, I do something similar with all my ships as well. 1. assemble the images manually in gimp as they are rendered, using snap to grid. 2. copy the background by color, pas...

Re: OnFireWeapon Help

I think you can put configuration on the missile tag so a launcher can have different configurations for missiles, but i could be wrong. The problem I see is sysCreateWeaponFire only makes one projectile, repeating weapons or configurations would need to be simulated with multiple calls to sysCreate...

Re: How do I Beat the Dragon Slaver?

Strictly speaking the dual flenser might do more raw damage, but that is ignoring armor and shield resistances. blast plate (level 6 I believe, a little less than dragon armor) for example resists kinetic by 615%, and particle by only 65% (added onto the normal 100%). Your flensers would actually do...

Re: George: question

I think what Nikitos is asking for is a weapon that flies straight through anything you don't want it to hit, friendly stations, planets, asteroids, autons, etc, and then hit what you shot at, as if it was guiding itself around anything that's not the target on the vertical plane. I think something ...

Re: Upgradeable Wingmen in 1.6a

I'll be able to dock with mules, battle autons and my wingmen, and fly them to a dock like my own ship That's right. As for how your ship behaves when you aren't flying it, that depends on your ship, but will probably be quite simplistic. sort of like the Playership Drones mod? sort of. I haven't a...

Re: Upgradeable Wingmen in 1.6a

That is because it's an autosentinel. if you want an auton that can be upgraded try the mule or 08u battle auton (found seperately on xelerus). The procedure you described sounds more like the outdated 2.x version. The v3 procedure is different and requires flying the auton/wingman to a station like...

Re: More powerful and more realistic Solar Panel Arrays

the solar panel overlay acts kind of like an outer layer of armor That's because onDamage returns 0, no damage, when it should return aDamageHP. That way the charge rate drops as the ship moves away from the sun, and stops charging when it gets too far out You can do that with an overlay too, it ju...

Re: my overlay is not removing

Thanks, Alterecco. I got it to work by setting a variable/flag on the overlay instead of removing it. It removes itself next time the onDamage or onUpdate runs. There's a slight lag if it isn't shot immediately again but that's ok since no code is run in duplication except for the check. I added the...
