Re: Militia missions --> new format

While it's a bit outside the scope of what you've all been planning, might I suggest swapping the marauder ship spawning for the various missions over to tables? Whether it's custom or the stock encounter tables, it would be good to vary things up a little. The old missions hard-coded Viking II's an...

Might be away a little while

So some idiot here at my uni got their device pwned, and since everything on this university goes through the same IP.....that means that IP got blacklisted. I'm using Tor to get around it, but outside of tor I can't post to the forums at all. ANd since Tor has a few issues of its own, I won't be us...

Re: Transcendence Changelog

This is the link https://www.dropbox.com/s/wepa2mfs19k8dp2/Transcendence%20Changelog.txt.zip?dl=0 I think that dropbox changed something recently ? (format of the link is not anymore like old links) Let me know if this is ok Dropbox killed off 'public' folders (and a lot of links) because........um...

Re: Shrike's Mines & Missiles ++

 I’m not entirely sure I agree with making Gusoku armor radiation-vulnerable. Actually, the more I think about it, the more strongly I dis agree. It’s already one of the worst Level VII armors, and now it’s been nerfed? I can understand carbide carapace being radiation-vulnerable if Taikon’s quadro...

Re: Forum theme

Sorry, but I have to object to a bright green on black. I've used other forums that tried it and it strains my eyes quite badly. Shouldn't be too difficult to tone the #bright' green down a bit tho.. That just makes it hard to read. Besides, the vote's pretty much wound up in favour of the 'milk' t...

Re: Shrike's Mines & Missiles ++

Shrike's Mines and Missiles is now too big for xelerus . I'm looking into alternatives, but it'll delay public releases until I've got a solution. Today's changes: -IMP9 went back to a low ROF -Increased spread on IMP9 (12 degrees, from 8) -increased lifetime of J400 rocket cartridge slightly -Two n...

Re: Laser/particle diffusion

I think we've got enough help with aiming - I can't really see a target - leading indicator improving the situation as much as some think it would. We don't have much help right now. We have targeting, which only helps for automated weapons.....and the visual enhancer, which gives some help at long...

Re: Laser/particle diffusion

I'm for this mechanic. It'd be a good balance feature - Kinetic weapons have slower speed but consistent damage at range, while laser weapons would be less powerful at range but easier to aim. In theory this is already the case: kinetic (and other matter) weapons have a damage bonus over lasers. Th...

Re: Laser/particle diffusion

Ok, setting aside that instantaneous beams don't work well without a change to engine scaling (which is a whole different thing for me to make a dramatic last stand on)....using clouds is a bad idea. Clouds don't do damage as a single projectile. So yes, they'd work for damage attentuation over time...

Re: Shrike's Mines & Missiles ++

Ok, I'll hook up the lightning rod and try getting xelerus to work. In feature news, I repaired some damage done to game balance via experimental changes I never bothered to revert. Tripoli-class destroyers will no longer chase you down with X-ray lasers and murder you instantly at extreme range wit...

With dropbox killing off the method I use to host my mods, I'm looking for a replacement. Anyone got any convenient solutions?

Re: Shrike's Mines & Missiles ++

The LOTOR loot is mostly placeholder stuff I rushed in to have something when that faction went live. There's a few things in there right now that I consider fine (credit ROMs, NAMI heavy ammo, a few rare guns), but mostly I agree the risk/reward is out of whack. The real problem is that interaction...

Re: Shrike's Mines & Missiles ++

Started work on some extra munitions to fill in gaps. In particular, I have two shell types for the Auto40 planned for implementation either for the next release, or the one after it.
