Re: PM's mods

It took much longer than expected, and some things were deferred for later, but the next update to Drake Technologies Alpha is finally ready and uploaded to Xelerus. The main new feature, at least for part 1, is most of the added items can level up via Dock Services (or a rare ROM). On the other sid...

Re: Thoughts on ships and armor mass

The main advantage Wolfen has over similar ships is it is fast enough to not need an engine. It pays for that by having less cargo space (35 tons instead of 50). If I grab the Freyr or Spartan, I might forgo cargo hold for a Titan or better engine. By midgame, mobility is better than Wolfen in excha...

Re: Thoughts on ships and armor mass

Do not forget about Eternity Port ships. In particular, Spartan and Raijin. (Also interested in Evern if it becomes playable.) I guess Hercules could be considered a freighter for this purpose. I have no problem with barring 'massive' armor from Wolfen, for 9 ton limit. Freyr appears too big to be a...

Re: Minotaur class

Minotaur is the only official playable ship that can fire two primary weapons at the same time, one of them being an omni weapon. It has more firepower than other ships, and its other stats (like cargo capacity) are good. Its primary weakness is mediocre (but not terrible) turning speed. If I play a...

Re: PM's mods

Uploaded Level Up Demo to Xelerus. It highlights one of the features planned for the next update to Drake Technologies. It adds a new option to Dock Services called "Level Up", which appears for items with a special attribute. This demo mod allows you to start as a Centurion with custom items that c...

Re: 1.8 Beta 3 is Ready!

The TransData that works for beta 2 still works for beta 3, at least for decompiling.

Re: 1.8 Beta 3 is Ready!

I like the new repeatingDelay. Updated few of my mod weapons already.

Re: PM's mods

I think I will leave it at item level for now. Some repair features in the game rely on item level (like +regen enhancement), and for now, I will treat the berserker doing something closer to +regen than repair from dock services.

Re: PM's mods

Berserker device has custom or special rules. It should not fully repair armor, only up to half hp or so. I will double check it later. I am still working on updating Drake Technologies. Real-life has gotten in the way more lately, but some progress has been made. Lately, I have folded all of the dr...

Re: Transcendence Broadcast: Domina & Oracus

One suggestion to tone down Ingenuity is to make the enhancement temporary (but much longer lasting than Strengthen) like the various reflects granted by some field crystals. It should stop the worst behavior of exploiting Ingenuity (sit for while and enhance everything, while taking breaks during r...

Re: Transcendence Broadcast: Domina & Oracus

There are only two viable ways to gain powers: Donating slave coffins or donating halo gems, neither of which appear much if at all before Ungoverned Territories. Donating Dall's unique sphere can help a little since his reward is nothing special anymore. Anything else like comtemplation and burning...

Re: Looking for comment/suggestions: Tinker redevelopment WIP

Tinkers are already useful financially. I don't know if they also need a huge number of new features. Repairing damaged items (up to a reasonable level) would be on-theme though. Mostly, they need need recipes for items that are useful but not overpowered at levels where you can find the stations a...

Re: Looking for comment/suggestions: Tinker redevelopment WIP

In terms of the game applying only one of them and being a bit iffy over which...that's probably a failing in the game to not flag "you are installing a device that conflicts with an existing device" or something like that. A George Problem, rather than a problem with the device itself. That descri...

Re: Looking for comment/suggestions: Tinker redevelopment WIP

Current thoughts: Steel or plasteel barricades? Shields might be low-HP, high regeneration (like A30 and the like from SM&M++)? Or possibly improvements on some gimmick armors (XMH, photo-org, etc)? What are A30 shield stats? In part 2, Zhen Ma shields have half standard hp, regeneration of a shiel...
