Re: Tweaking the Minotaur (+ more player ships)

By the time Centurions appear, so do the Minotaur. Centurion/X might be a fun ship to play with, except I want Minotaur when I can get either. Right now Centurions are quite crappy. They are worse than the starting ships in pretty much all aspects. But that can be easily changed, I'm playing variou...

Re: Tweaking the Minotaur (+ more player ships)

I haven't considered the concurrent key press limitations of most membrane keyboards. That might be a problem :? I was thinking of reducing the firepower upgrade by allowing you to fire both weapons only for a short time, so you'd fire either the primary or secondary (primary for stations/capital sh...

Tweaking the Minotaur (+ more player ships)

I've been toying with adding additional player ships from later in the game, to see how playable they are and maybe rebalance them a little (Benedict's Asterion gunship, Hugo Sandoval's Armstrong freighter, Centurion for dual-fire weapons, etc.). Might release them as they are just for feedback, the...

Re: My Ideas for Moving Forward

Discord has a web interface, you don't need to install anything. For IRC it depends on the IRC server/network and in any case it's much less friendly to your average Joe (eg. no built-in history).

Re: Transcendence Version Archives

The link is dead, I get a 404. George, do you still have the archive around? I think we should still keep the old versions around somewhere, for nostalgia at least :) Maybe the same with Xelerus, it appears it's not maintained anymore and the community thought it would go down, but it's still up, so...

Re: 1.8 Release

Is it save to load a save created with beta 5? Is anything expected to break?

New dock screen bugs

1) Stations charge only the install price for upgrading a reactor, not the reactor price + install price. You can get a Nova-100 for 1000 credits. 2) Stations offer to upgrade enhanced reactors to unenhanced ones. 3) Armor repair does not take into account the repair level; you can repair XMH and Ne...

More armor items for Manticore

I've been thinking of doing a small mod to add more armor items for the Manticore player ship, as the Novaya series is quite limited. My idea is to downgrade the Novaya to be similar to Cerraloy but a little better (more HP and slightly higher restistances) and expand upon the XMH armor as a high le...

Re: Safe locations to jettison?

I believe other ships will loot and scuttle wrecks and containers. I've seen quite a few random friendly ships do this, including to the cargo I jettisoned in St. K's!

Re: Emergency Thrusters

This sounds suspiciously like afterburners in current military jet engines (well in Transcendence it looks like you're always on afterburners). Useful for brief periods, but any longer and you'll definitely destroy the engine. I think it's a good idea; possibly as an additional device, an "engine bo...

Re: 1.3 Beta 1

The new 3D-ish map is very off-putting. The old map was perfect - no need to change anything. Ships wobble a bit, not knowing where to fire, or dock. Heck even Rama is spinning in a circle. The side thrusters are a neat detail; the main engines are awesome, as well as the missidle exhausts. Some fr...

Re: Missing elements of communication in Transcendence

I propose we develop a complete SDK for modding Transcendence. This discussion should go in a separate thread, but I think a website built specifically for this would be the best method. Not just a wiki - to include "builders" for extensions, to manage the extensions, to host the docs, to reserve U...
