unfortunately you just lost any possibility to dock with that specific station. You can use this http://xelerus.de/index.php?s=mod&id=9 to resolve the problem if you are really stuck in your game. Nah, I'm not stuck - I'm actually doing quite well for once. It just bugs me a bit ;-) Thanks for the ...

Accidentally annoyed a commonwealth station ...

I accidentally annoyed a commonwealth station (my auton fired through it at a defective auton). Will it, and the ships around it, ever forget? Any way to fix things?

Incidentally, I think the ability to use (C)ommunicate with aggravated friendlies to pay off fines / bribe them would be a nice idea.

I don't think he wants a unique pointer. He said all three types of barricade have the same name. He wants to know whether a given barricade is single, double, or quad and the name doesn't tell him. UNID is exactly the right thing to use. Yep, you're right. You can see what I used it for in the Mov...

Re: Name that bug!

However, if three or more mines are laid, and then an enemy ship spawns, then when the mines start going off, the game crashes. It doesn't happen to have anything to do with the timer event being fired after the mine is already destroyed, does it? (Just a guess). Could you add debug code to check f...

Thanks. I've put that in to be on the safe side. My (very small) mod is now finished if you want to take a look. :D

http://xelerus.de/index.php?s=functions&function=256 objGetUnid would be a better name for it though. Maybe George will add it. I think all it would take is (setq objGetUnid (lambda (theObj) ( (if (objisShip theObj) (shpGetClass theObj) (staGetType theObj)) ))) in a global somewhere. No changes to ...

objGetUNID ?

Is there a way to find the UNID of a given spaceObject ? For example, the three types of Titanium Barricade 'station' all have the same name (Titanium Barricade) . I need to be able to tell which one you are docked to, and the UNID would be the obvious choice (to me). I'm pretty sure I can work arou...

Edit - I missed one from the possible update list.

* Allow items with different damage states and enhancements to be combined.

5 damaged laser cannons + 2 undamaged laser cannons + 1 enhanced laser cannon
doesn't equal 8 laser cannons.

Still not getting how to override Transcendence content :-(

I thought I knew what I was doing, but I was obviously mistaken. What I want to do is override the DockScreen &dsBarricade; that is displayed when your ship is docked to a deployed Titanium Barricade. I'd like to add extra actions so you can reposition the barricade after it is deployed. <?xml versi...

Smart Tinkers - suggestion thread.

I'm taking suggestions for changes to the Tinkers to be added to the Smart Tinkers mod. Additional custom jobs / changes to custom jobs. Example of change - Instead of two lots of Titanium Ore getting you one crappy Titanium Plate 10 lots of Titanium Ore gets a somewhat more impressive Titanium Barr...

Updated! See first post! Seen first post, and seen new layout. Early impressions: * Looks nice. Definitely a more professional feel. * When editing mod details it does not remember the previous settings. e.g. if you edit a mod 'made for 1.01' the selection of '0.95' will still be highlighted when y...

It's one of the functions on xelerus that needs to be updated.
Is the same true of shpEnhanceItem then?

Yes, yes it can. I just used it in when I removed getItemListCursor and shpRepairItem from The Almighty Wrench.
