Re: A few ideas and suggestions

.... 2) *Armor Dealers: ... .... It would be nice to have a small list of shields to choose from, with each having specific deflections. Also, though it's not very important, just makes sense... Armor dealers already have a random selection of shields available for sale. How about just adding a "Bu...

Re: Bugs and feature request for capacitors for weapons.

Unless their behavior has changed since 1.08, weapon capacitors have an additional problem: They generate their own power while charging, rather than drawing it from the ship's reactor! I started a thread about this in the Shipyards forum just over two years ago: How can I make a weapon capacitor dr...

Re: [New Mod] Uncharted Released!

Although this is a little off-topic, I'd just like to say: WELCOME BACK, YAMA! Remember that true capacitor charging weapon you mentioned once? I made a prototype to your specifications, and was hoping that some day you would return to test it! Hopefully it was worth the wait! Hi TVR, Thanks so muc...

Re: [New Mod] Uncharted Released!

Many thanks guys!

No wonder I couldn't find it: I was looking in the Transcendence settings.xml file. :oops:

I'll give it a try tomorrow. :D

Re: [New Mod] Uncharted Released!

Please pardon me for being dense, but how do you "-Set the amount of total nodes in Settings.xml"? :oops:

I do know where Settings.xml is located and how to edit it.

Re: So, this just happened[spoilers?].

Have a Jump drive, know about using it on stargates, but that's it. If you use the jump drive when you're not over a stargate, you'll jump 500 light seconds in the direction your ship is pointed. The Iocrym command ship's (ICS) plasma weapons are all very short range and it moves pretty slow, so it...

Re: So, this just happened[spoilers?].

Hi Bob,

Do you have, or can get a Jump drive? There's a pretty easy way to kill the Command Ship if you have one, and you won't even need anything fancy in the way of weapons or shields. 8-)

Hi Ttech, Many thanks for all your good work managing these contests. :) They help these great mods and their authors get more of the recognition they deserve. That said, I respectfully request that (if possible) you amend the poll to credit PM for his brilliant and comprehensive Playership Drones m...

Re: Some 3/4 newbie questions :)

Hi ytszazu, Welcome to the forums. :) 1. How do I enhance my octocarbide armor ? (Level 10) I find the level 9 hexacarbide armor much better. Can be upgraded to 50% by ortorosteel nanos, repairable using common stations using credits (instead of the rare rin shipyards), much faster spider repair tim...

Re: [Mod] Playership Drones v4

Thanks PM, I'm really looking forward to trying it. It might be a little while though 'cause I'm 4+ hours into my first 1.07a (with Playership Drones v3 :) ) permadeath attempt, and still alive three systems past St. Kat's. Regarding v4, I have one suggestion, one question and one request. Suggestio...

I'd forgotten about the "Alien" attribute. :oops:

... so if you can stand to carry it around that long, selling to the Teratons is truly the way to go. You can never have to many Rin. :D

Re: Dark acid and little bit past St K's

.....It is indeed the penitant cannon..Mainly wondering about it so i could palm it off.... Sadly, because it's a 'NotForSale' item, selling it in the credit economy will only get you a small fraction of it's base value. What version of Transcendence are you playing? In v1.06 or later, you can hang...

Maybe some bright fellow opened a barrel of radioactive waste inside the ship, rather than applying it to the armor? :lol:

Two things I'd like to see added in 1.08

Finer control over ship rotation: I'd very much like to have two alternative ship-rotation keys (one left and one right) or key-combinations that would rotate the the playership one facing each time you hit the key, rather than continuously rotate the ship as long as you hold the key. I like to sit...

Re: My Network game Blues (on version 1.04)

Korolov blacklists when the playership delivers the killing blow to the freighter, regardless of extenuating circumstances. Actually PM, it's Trent's fault.
