Re: Starting ship balance

I think more speeds and turn rates is a good thing to do. I'll....admit that I don't really shift from those much (though I have changed a few values, notably for the Scorpions). Ship balance will always have some qualitative elements of course, as well as technically quantitative measures that aren...

Re: Starting ship balance

While I do like having algorithmic support for balancing ships, I think we need to resolve the disconnect between the two measures used for the mass of armor. It's two sets of very reasonable scales that don't actually match each other, and that causes some significant issues. I've run into this a l...

Re: Discord invite link is invalid

We invalidated the discord link on the forum because of it being used by someone to spam new accounts to bypass a ban (unfortunately, removing the link from the forum, or updating it, takes a different set of permissions I don't have as a moderator). I'll send a PM over with a one-time invite.

Re: Trouble adding a freighter to Korolov

I managed to get the missions working. I'll see what's going on with the speed later.

Re: idea boosted NAMI mines

The alternative is to use fragmentation: destroy the mine and fire a projectile that looks exactly the same (using multitarget+autoacquiretarget) at it. I use this with fixed-speed projectiles, but there's no reason (other than the trickery of the proximity-detonation mechanic and lack of custom fra...

Re: Trouble adding a freighter to Korolov

Well, I found one problem: The game caches the data at start, so updating the code on the fly doesn't work. I'm now trying to get an up-to-date spawn of the ship to work. The other oddity is that the freighter data tab is misreporting the maximum speed. It's listing it as 0.19c, not 0.18c. All norma...

Trouble adding a freighter to Korolov

I've been trying to add a new freighter varient to Korolov. It's spawning in correctly, but isn't giving any credit for missions. If anyone's familiar with the mission framework, would they mind seeing if I've messed up in my ship code? <ShipClass UNID="&scArmstrongTransportKorolov;" manufacturer= "...

Re: Thoughts on ships and armor mass

It might also be worth adding the Molotok to the mix. It's the right size to be a playership if the Syndikat gets expanded in future.

Re: Thoughts on ships and armor mass

These make sense to me. ^_^ The player ships I'm currently adding myself based on modified NPC stats are the Ronin/B, Oromo, Sotho, Asterion, Scorpion (though I'm doing something fairly exotic with it involving sidemounts so it's not entirely parallel to the NPC), and Armstrong. They mostly fit into...

Re: Transcendence Broadcast: Domina & Oracus

Shatter...might be best if it only hit a single enemy (as a targeted power) but I'm not a fan of the shatter system in general. Circle of Wrath is best used in emergencies as a missile block: shockwaves are a perfect barrier to low-HP projectiles. Offensively? It's garbage. I would suggest that you ...

Re: Looking for comment/suggestions: Tinker redevelopment WIP

Improved Particle Accelerator: As per the vanilla "particle accelerator", this improves the damage of particle weapons. Unlike the standard one, it uses the same power but gives a 75% boost, not a 50% boost. It cannot be stacked with other particle accelerators (improved or standard) This is not po...

Looking for comment/suggestions: Tinker redevelopment WIP

Intro/About So it's been maybe a year since I first looked at revamping the Tinkers in vanilla. Things didn't go very well IRL so I stopped work on my prototypes. But I'm coming back to it and starting to write up my rough suggestions for comment before I work on prototyping them further. Tinkers a...

Re: Tomorrow on Twitch: Spreading the Word

I was referred to it by a friend in an MMO. I don't believe he was ever part of the community though.


Marketing games is absurdly hard these days, but we've got to start somewhere.

Re: Shrike 'N' AssumedPseudonym's Superior Sounds (Alpha)

It's true. Health issues have kept me out of development (and will continue to do so for some time). So AP's free to maintain it in whatever way necessary.
