Re: LIMITING HOWITZER AMMO

I'm against artificial restrictions; ie you can only install reactor/weapon/armor of less than x amount of tons. The weight component should be enough to force balance. If you install extra heavy stuff, you pay the price in decreased maneuverability. Weight is already a factor even within the assign...

Re: Weapon balance stats

I have to ask, is weapon damage calculated before or during use? It has always been my understanding that a weapon with 1d6 will have a damage output of between 1 and 6, depending on what the RNG comes up with at the time of use. Is that true, or is it calculated once at load time and fixed forever ...

Re: Pale Blue Light Alpha Release

ok, I guess I'll give you a pass on any further crying because it's alpha. Don't bother changing rotation and speed if that's how it's supposed to behave. I don't like the single armor segment, though. That's a bit less than useful. My only other concern, at the moment, is the artwork. The last time...

Re: Transcendence 1.5 won't run

Might be unrelated, but I noticed on a fresh install of vista that the beta refused to run. Apparently vista noticed that I had extracted the exe at work and then just copied it from my external, therefor it "belonged" to a different pc. Now that I think about it more, I'm pretty sure it's not relat...

Re: Newbie player bugs

The EI500 is the easiest ship to get started with, due to its omni weapon and the somewhat challenging facings system, so might it be useful to recommend it to first time players? Perhaps even locking the other two until the Benedict tutorial is complete would be a good idea. I know I'm glad I pick...

Re: Pale Blue Light Alpha Release

hmm... i'll start here and see what happens... your extension works... no errors popped up... it was selectable... it says dock and you'll get a mission... then there's nothing at the station... a quick tour around the system reveals nada... did you put in the default rotation and top speed on the s...

Re: [George] In what order should I parse the XML files?

My brain just exploded. Welcome to coding, hehe, where brain-splosions are as common as grains of sand on a beach. :mrgreen: Yeah, logic is trippy stuff. I've never really given that much thought to this. I usually just start reading and following references until I find what I want and then I plug...

Re: Transcendence Port to Linux and Mac

I tried to run trans with wine on an opensuse install the other day and it didn't even fire off the loading animation before it bombed... I'm pretty new to making things work with wine even though I've dabbled with it off and on since it came out. I probably just didn't configure it properly. I don'...

Re: Newbie player bugs

sorry, didn't look into what digdug is talking about, but it reminded me of another game that had brakes in it. Generally I'd like to see this implemented, but not just invisible brakes that magically slow you. Maybe an item that can be found or purchased such as a reverse thruster or maybe a really...
