Re: Looking for comment/suggestions: Tinker redevelopment WIP

Personally, I'd like to see the Tinkers retain a variety of 'interesting' adaptations of various weapons and equipment. BUT move them more in the direction of enhancing existing items rather than creating the items themselves. So they'd have a small lineup of more useful/fun 'stock' equipment that c...

Re: PM's mods

Drake is probably my favourite 'complete' mod pack so far. There is just so much variety to investigate, and despite playing with it for a several versions I still don't feel like I've done more than scratch the surface of what is present. Maximum compliments deserved. My only real disappointment wi...

I used a ShieldEfficiiency cube on it (via a slotless CPU) and I got the message "Your shield is more efficient". But the shield wasn't more efficient and retained the particle reflection.
Can confirm this.
Happens with both efficiency and power shield upgrade cubes used via a slotless CPU.

Re: [MOD] Dynamic Systems V6.d

Just an aside. Never noticed this before, but the Corporate Railgun is hilarious. It can only ever be salvaged out of the wrecks of Corp. Cruisers, but it's..... Probably an oversight tbh, but damn is it "interesting". Interesting because it has an effective range that makes howitzers look like babb...

Re: Targeting system changes

Something else that could use some attention is the "behind the scenes" of targeting itself. In particular a problem which arises when a ship has both swivel and omni weapons installed. Swivel appears to take precedence over omni in a frustrating way. Eg: If a ship has a swivel mount weapon as it's ...

Re: Targeting system changes

Linked-fire weapons with fire-arcs automatically fire at enemy targets that are out of range of the primary weapon. Some improvements for that would be one, include angry objects regardless of blip color for automatic targeting (currently, only enemy reds are targeted) Not true in my experience - a...

Re: Endless Sky

fighting: most of the foes that the player encounters are designed to be fought by a fleet, not a single ship. Fleet management is very important as a game mechanic and several buttons are dedicated/tweaked for that (hold fleet, attack target, group/scatter have 1 button each). This is the one thin...

Re: Reprogrammed Launchers: experiment in typGetXML + typCre

I've played more than a dozen games with this now, and I'm fairly confident in saying that even "as is" this is one of my favourite mods. The feed-to-advance mechanic feels completely unobtrusive, and acts as a pretty good ratchet for progression. It also acts as a moderate incentive to actually use...

Re: PM's mods

I removed Solaris from DrakeTech because it was basically a blatant wishlist item That they were. I think the biggest 'problem' with them was that they had too much of everything. Thier main gimmick was allowing you to pretty much ignore fuel forever, but they also had decent resistances across the...

Re: PM's mods

Oh my.... There is some simply wonderful things in the new revision of Drake.
And also a tiny bit of disappointment that the "solaris" gear is no longer a thing. Oh well, I suppose it was a little on the OP side.

Also,

Got a chuckle.

Re: Requesting MORE Solar Armor

re: solar armour coating
Solar effect scales with the level of the armour it is applied to.
And leaves such treated armour vulnerable to EMP/Ion effects.

Possible?

Re: Mining Pack released! (collab with TransGeek)

Strange. I never had any problem finding ore in Eridani in 1.5 or 1.6. But in 1.7 even with the 'sane tables' mod there is just nothing to mine in the early systems. It was really fun scratching around the first couple of systems for enough of the right kind of ore to make your own armour and fuel. ...

Re: [MOD] Dynamic Systems V6.d

From the looks of it, you can only get the status of individual autons.
The squadron commands are present on the comm menu, but I don't know if they work or not as I haven't yet been able to arrange a situation to test it.

Re: [MOD] Dynamic Systems V6.d

Over time Commonwealth civilians have a chance to get autons guarding them This makes the game look/feel much more alive. However.... After a couple of minutes the number of autons that can accumulate is very, noticable. http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a224/Tifi78/unlimitedautons_zpskqpctoms.png ...
