Re: Steam Workshop and Multiverse Content

The steam workshop implementation is a lot harder to use as a mod developer than the alternatives, and a lot of people in the community who develop mods don't use Steam, so people haven't really bothered with workshop uploads (I've tried it once or twice, couldn't get it to work, then never touched ...

Re: Inhabitable Planets

There are three M-class (earth/earthlike) planets in the canon thus far: Earth, Incandescent (in St. Katherine's Star), and the current Ares homeworld. As for non-earthlikes with colonies...unknown.

Re: placing images in post text query

Sure I can help with this one. When you've uploaded an image, clicking "place inline" when you have an active cursor/location in the text box will insert it at that location. You can move it around later. Then just write between the attachment embeds. AXTIRFortress.png I'm embedding a copy of the AX...

Re: [DEV] Elemental Shift

One month on, and a few things have progressed quite nicely. The big change is that I've started integrating both vanilla and ES vessels into the Ship Broker system. You can now pick up and fly the following in shipyards: ES Originals Bandit -class interceptor (4 variants) Bandicoot- class gunship (...

Re: adding ships to commonwealth traffic

A good guide to an interesting system. I considered swapping to this approach for Elemental Shift, but because I reduce the appearances of some of the stock ships (to make them level-appropriate) I ultimately had to stay with the old way and just redefine the entire table (which introduces problems ...

Re: [DEV] Elemental Shift

Aury has done an excellent job modelling up a ship that's been on the 'to-add' list for Elemental Shift for about two years now: a reimagining of the very old Mikeno-class that used to be in the game assets. MikenoHeroSmaller.png It's now a hyperfreighter, and it's gonna be pretty big. Not that big ...

Re: [DEV] Elemental Shift

Today I got the second iteration of my tweaks to the Anaxas mission (destroying the Cyclops HQ) to work. I've since redone the ship tables to tweak what goes where (and also added a little more variety), but here's some shots from my test run:
ESPromo1A.png
Anton and Kate brought friends! Friends that aren't all in stock Ronin/C gunships at that!

The mission code assumes that all ships have the same speed so they spread out a little. This will get worse in the next version, because I added a manticore to the mix. It still looks pretty dang impressive.

I've since moved the Likho and Frey-class gunships onto escort duty for the Troglav and the two Sigyns and added some more advanced gunships to the mix on the main attack force, so hopefully things are a *little* less hectic. It's still generally a close fight with this particular mix, so I'll have to see if my changes improve things or not.

More things to show off: --- DobsonProjector2.png The Dobson Projector has been remade into a functioning (hand-balanced for now) heavy weapon at level 8. The first time I've experimented with RepeatingDelay, the Dobson Projector fires three very heavy, very slow projectiles in a spray in front of ...

Re: [DEV] Elemental Shift

Well, real life caught up with me in a bad way. But I'm back to slowly working on things. George is currently running the mod on stream, and I'm doing some fixes based on that. ....unfortunately I didn't get around to pulling the nukes off Talon Group before sending him the mod, so he's gonna have s...

Re: regen= "8"

Generally speaking, regen on stations is intended to fix a station if you go away and come back again. There's probably some room to examine/chart regen by level effectively to see what stations exceed things a little. The big offenders are easier to spot, and generally I think they need more HP, wi...

Re: My Ideas for Moving Forward

Hmm. Some good points there, though one barrier is that missions are one of the harder things to learn to make in the engine. They're easier than they were, certainly...but they still have some rather nasty challenges (this is why my project doesn't have them yet: they'll be in the 2.0 major release...

Re: What's up with the Constellation?

It may be a problem with some code not updating correctly...I've run into issues with other systems where some things get locked in when the game is created, rather than updating with the code.
