Re: How to Business 101

I updated the spreadsheet again. Now it only has 5 tables. Negative Delta-P and Positive Delta-P were separated, Factory data was merged into global data and the cherry is the new interactive table that lets you enter how much cargo space you have and how many credits and get the best trading route....

Re: How to Business 101

Updated again.

Forgot to add special case for CSC Medical, Victorian Nightclub and Corporate Enclave Maintenance Shop. Those actually have infinite credits.

How to Business 101

So. You want to earn lots of money without getting yourself in danger every time? You've come to the right place. Basics: Some stations pay more for stuff than others. Fortunately there is a very helpful indicator that shows just that: unit discount and unit markup. This should be a pretty obvious p...

Undocumented TLisp feature: Variable arguments

While browsing Transcendence's source code, I came across a surprising comments that completely blew everyone's minds: you can actually make variable arguments! https://vgy.me/F6vW82.png And indeed it works.

Re: Xelerus will no longer function from 1st September, 2017

Re: Xelerus will no longer function from 1st September, 2017

There are several reasons one might set it up that way. One is logging. It's difficult to accurately log download counts without it going through your server. Other reasons include authentication (probably not the reason here), issues with cross-origin requests (again, probably not the issue here s...

Re: Xelerus will no longer function from 1st September, 2017
