Ok I'm back

Been a hot minute since I stopped in to poke at this game and look at stuff. What did I miss besides needing to update my DraCorp stuff for presumably many-a change?

Re: Recursive weapons fire demonstration

Fancy, nice to see someone else getting some recursion together. I remember making a recursive weapon with... similarly icky results initially, but I wound up using a couple different types of fragments instead of repeating like that since I wanted to avoid dice rolls... Overall really cool stuff, I...

Re: Events and variables questions

Here's the bin: http://pastebin.com/gdqRmRyz

The event doesn't even seem to fire (the surrounding messages don't appear at all) so I'm wondering if I'm calling the function wrong, or what.

Events and variables questions

I'm trying to make some interesting effects via recursion, but I'm running into brick walls trying to find the variables I need to look for. There's variable lists for what's returned and required by say, sysCreateWeaponFire, but what actual data is created for, say <OnFireWeapon>? I'm digging aroun...

Re: Tips on defeating a phobos

It's been a little while since I played, but my Phobos killing strategy is pretty straightforward: Get a weapon with recoil and shoot to run away. Circle like mad when the turret go off, and avoid being perfectly in front of the Phobos. Don't need enhanced weapons, just patience and a little fuel if...

Re: how does the random loot selection work exactly?

Have you tried taking a look at the code for the ICS? The loot generation code should be in there. Armor is counted as a MinorItem I believe, so it will make more sense when you can read item tables. Edit - I take that back. I just checked loot generation code in the main Transcendence XML. 70% of i...

Re: Hacking the Iocrym Neural Network

I save scummed the first couple times to get a feel for how fast the virus damages and how fast the AI adapts. I tend to pump out a high quantity of virus in the beginning and then drop down to almost nothing while the AI adapts, then pump it back up as the resistance drops to zero and hold it stead...

Re: Wolfen's starting configuration can exceed 10 MW.

I frequently run into that early on, partially because I delay a reactor upgrade until I need to, and partially because I tend to... well... want to run many systems at once.

Re: Something curious

Late response, but Arco never responded beyond the first two messages, and neither were his "Osht" variety.

Something curious

I have not yet gotten around to duplicating these, but the following incidents spiked my interest during my 1.05 playthroughs: First - I take on Arco Vaughn, I'm not sure if it's something new, but it seems he only says two things and is silent, no matter how much you mess with him. First he said hi...

Re: 1.05 is ready

Started my first run through and ended just past St. Kat's. Aside from slight rust from not playing in awhile, it works smoothly. And I giggled at the ability to select things other than missiles. Fun ensues for all.

Re: What Mods do you use?

I mostly play vanilla, but occasionally I try to play around with the GOD mod, and the Living Ship mod because it's fun. And of course I use my mod when testing it. I still need to get back up on my programming for my shield ideas >.>
