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...

Re: Looking for comment/suggestions: Tinker redevelopment WIP

The main problems with crafting are: * Too hard to get components before the crafted item is obsolete, especially if components are not readily found as loot. * Most enhancements are undesirable for the cost. Components that are common drops from enemies are occasionally useful. I crafted dual turbo...

Re: Transcendence Broadcast: The Sung Slavers

There could be better rewards at 12 and 24 slaves. Longzhus are the only useful thing, but not so great since they do not stack anymore, and the rest of the items are junk. However, even if rewards are better, slaves being the only practical way to get tier 5 powers means players who want those powe...

Re: Requests for older mods to be updated or improved

It will be a while (no time table set) before I get back to Playership Drones. At the moment, I am busy updating another mod, or rather, updating it sporadically due to real life. (I thought my aforementioned update was be finished last month, but... I was delayed.) That said, I would like to resume...

Re: Gamer Motivation Model

Yes, it is true the player needs a plan to win (without dying). Transcendence is not the kind of game to hand the win on a platter if player wants to honor permadeath.

It would be nice if there was a mode that enforced permadeath.

Re: Tomorrow on Twitch: Spreading the Word

I would call Transcendence the space dungeon. Arm up, kill monsters (ships), loot, find the exit, repeat until you win (or die)!

A new trailer with updated in-game graphics would be nice.
