Re: The Heisenmachines Quantum CPU: Do you use it?

Hmm, yeah. I THINK the Aguptera Cortex lets one use quantum cubes, but don't quote me on that. Stuff like QCPUs was why I always used hardpoint-extenders. Too much stuff in the game for one item-slot-cramped ship. But some of the stuff, especially in mods, was pretty nice. (Dragonslayer +50%, w00t!)...

Re: Interesting stats from IRC

And having taken the journey a sufficient number of times, Part 1 got...tedious. More so when I'm expecting that I wouldn't be able to keep my progress should Part 2 ever actually happen.

Re: Launching a Let's Play Transcendence 1.1

Well, the board clearly offers them, and I even threw a warning in advance.

But from my perspective it's better to learn about a potential game-ender & (more importantly) quest-terminator in advance. <shrug>

Re: Launching a Let's Play Transcendence 1.1

Spaceship not as astrodynamic, so it needs...spoilers? Here you go. [spoiler=]The Surprise has blast plate, so particle guns rip it apart about as well as they rip apart the frigates before it. The problem with the Surprise is that killing it instantly finishes the Korolov plotline, giving the playe...

Re: [MOD] Dynamic Systems V6.a

Yeah, I've tried out the PSD shipwright. Not sure how many players would want a Corsair, Viking, Earthzone, etc though. "Yay! another Steel Slaver for my collection!" You get the idea. Fourfire's probably onto something there, but I'd suggest that the system clear fighter-type wrecks and only in a r...

Re: [MOD] Dynamic Systems V6

WB Patupi. Yeah, it's weird. I'll look into the pirate issue. I also haven't done the station looting aspect yet. I'll keep in mind to have it check every ~2 minutes? Is that too short? Also, another thing I've been thinking about is if station looters should clear wrecks. Would this get in the way...

Re: How to check exactly how much domina attitude/relationsh

PM's got a mod for that--I think it's "Hints" or something. Unless george changed that too in the latest version, the timer applies to credit donations, not item donations. (That would be because credit donations' efficacy are based on your ship's net worth, so donating rapidly would let a determine...

Re: Digdug's rendering corner

Ah, I have Bryce 4 kicking around somewhere. Good program. I'll presume FourFire & I have the same problem: whatever those Ferian Hive shots are supposed to be, they look like some fae-forsaken test pattern to this particular Firefox (whatever the latest version is) installation. Each is a hash of c...

Can you check to see if there are Sapiens/Charon/Marauders in the system?
I've had that with confirmed Marauder outposts in-system. Haven't completed the Arena or made Legend, though.

Re: What to do if you see a spambot

Just noticed someone with no avatar, etc posting a Dos Equis meme in the ODM Alarm thread:

Wasn't sure if that's an actual spambot or an amusing spam-replacement. Any insights?

Re: What stations/encounters are required for the game?

Datal : though the storyline does imply that the fleet is suffering severe supplies shortages Ammo would probably be the thing which runs out last... considering the poor combat abilities of the majority of pilots... Ships would run out faster than missiles :P That is one thing that bothers me. If ...

Re: What stations/encounters are required for the game?

Regarding Tinkers, I'm inclined to agree that they need to show up early or not at all. Charon is pretty cavalier with their frigates--I'd expect that something that can launch gunships would at least try to stay out of the primary battle area. If nothing else, having the Kronosaurus roll after the ...

Re: What stations/encounters are required for the game?

The ones that can really cripple a game if they don't show are Korolovs. You can get the whole militia mission string from one fortress and unless the stargate distance parameters fail you can do the same for the fleet mission string with a single non-medical CSC, but Korolovs kick you out after a ...

Re: Drivers and Reactors Should be Slotless.

Seems like another way to approach the same proposal: everyone loses a slot to the default reactor and must take a suboptimal reactor to get the slot back. (How many slots for the Amaterasu or Helios reactors*?) I think I'll pass. Now, if every ship in the game had fuel requirements, and therefore f...
