Re: Excalibur Targeting ROM

Have I mentioned how much I like this mod? It's great and extremely useful. I think it should be a must-have whenever I play.

Re: Transcendence Picture thread

I found out that TVR's ICX Overhaul lets me perform skywriting (spacewriting?). Unfortunately the anti-beam attenuator puffs don't last long enough.

Re: What do YOU want for 1.09?

I'd like to see some better station rolls for St. K's. Twice now in 1.08L there have been 8-12 CW residential stations around the Arcology, 2-4 Corp Enclaves, and once there was an auton dealer. No useful stations :(

Re: Do only spaceship captains get called by Domina?

Non-captains probably hitch rides until people refuse to take them any further. One of the lore entries mentions a freighter pilot transporting some Sisters so I figure that's at least a possibility.

Re: [George] Ship dimensions and scale

Stations seem reasonable as they are. Big white saucer Commonwealth stations are a kilometer in diameter, and the Arcology of New Victoria is 10 km in diameter. See: http://img341.imageshack.us/img341/3221/arcologyscale.png Each square represents 500 meters in that picture. The little white ring by ...

Re: communications system

- request to free up a docking port to the closest station - request a couple of fuel rods to the closest ship First one please. I'd rather ask the ship to move than to keep shooting ships until one runs away. But if other NPC ships are waiting in the queue, I have to shoot more. If I accidentally ...

Re: [George] Ship dimensions and scale

I'd like to make a nicer one first, at least one with textures, maybe some extra ships and one of the smaller stations. Give me a few days, then you're welcome to add it.

Re: [George] Ship dimensions and scale

Scale chart! Just three ships and a station, but it gives you an idea. From left to right, Wolfen (25m), Charon Frigate (100m), Xenophobe Worldship (350m), Armored Commonwealth Station (1km), The Prince (5cm). I'm not sure if the frigate counts as a "large gunship" but it is 128px long so I guess it...

Re: [Discussion/Suggestions] Background details!

I'd like to see Tinkers repair items as well. The majority of their inventory is worthless, except for armour. That makes it really hard to sell junk to them since you can't easily replenish their stock of credits. Even better -- it would be great to be able to install damaged items. Then let Bobby'...

Re: [George] Ship dimensions and scale

A small gunship is 25 meters long, and my Wolfen is 25.5 meters long. It looks like I was in the right ballpark. The rest of these will be useful too. Thank you George!

Re: [Discussion/Suggestions] Background details!

I agree with most of this fully and only partially on minefields. The one time I ever see mines (some mission where an Aurochs places mines in the path of a ship you're escorting) they are placed so tightly that they're basically worthless. I don't know how well a large, spread-out minefield would w...

[George] Ship dimensions and scale

For a while I and some other people in IRC have been having discussions about the dimensions of some of the ships, specifically the Wolfen. On IRC Day George said that he would post the exponential scale if we reminded him, so here's that reminder! And if anyone hasn't seen this topic yet, there's a...
