Re: [Concept]: Outlaw miner update

This is a great idea. I'm interested to see better system level scaling for this faction. And since this already involves changing the code, why not letting the station choose the ore ? Let's have 1 single outlaw miners station, when it spawns , depending on system environment and level, it chooses ...

Re: Changing ships at shipyards

I would like to see upgrade paths, or at least an upgrade of a playership with a similar role playership. For example: - wolfen --> centurion --> centurion x - freighter --> EI200 --> some other larger freighter. upgrades can be done with a tradeoff: new ship can mount larger armor sections but it's...

Re: 1.8 Alpha 2

There were at least two undocumented features (not mentioned in the API spec) added in the 1.8 alphas. Firstly, the "healer" points that biotech ships use are hardcoded into the engine. Secondly, interior compartments can now be made into external "sections" that move with the ship. wouldn't be a g...

Re: Getting started with git and github

this is a great guide that I really needed. I just forked transcendence, cloned it to my pc. Now, I need help with some git etiquette, regarding what and how should I push upstream to George. Do I have to make a branch for each fix I want to tackle ? I'm not sure how my cloned repo would work if I w...

Re: dockscreen special highlight keys query

if you remove esc or enter from the default actions of your dockscreen, you can have an inescapable dockscreen. This is really useful if the player has to do some actions in the dockscreen for it to close and you don't want the player to just press esc and close it :D

I do have random colored weapons, rainbow weapons and a number of supporting functions in WE6 such as: - RGB to HSL converter. - dec to hex to dec (taken from alterecco's DSF, and fixed because it has a bug) - function that converts '(0...

Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

Transcendence is coming from roguelike tradition. Ships are character classes, they have different carry capacity and the cargo hold can be seen as the traditional "bag of holding". Currently, to survive better and/or for an optimal gameplay, you need a cargo hold. Loot is the player primary mean of...

Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

Yes there should be an obvious way in which they are introduced.
what if the Korolov station to have some flavour text about the cargo hold ? maybe the player talking with some freighter pilot, can be suggested that smaller ships can install a cargo hold.

Re: So I wanted to try the ion9 again in 1.7

Oh I like that !
With a bit of luck, it would enable players to get the Ion9, while still honouring the never backtracked conduct.

Re: Upgrade the Iocrym w/ Crystal Clear Iocrym

wow, i'm really happy that other people are actually enjoying my renders. For this to go into the main game is a bit far fetched. Unfortunately I used Bryce to make the renders, and I think, for the sake of consistency, the new renders must be done in Truespace so that George will be able to update ...
