Re: What do you want documentation on?

 Y’all’re taking away my excuses to not work on TBR missions. Stop that. <.< >.> <.<;

Re: AE Mod Collection

I’ve done another update on AE — Utility Pack , adding two new intro screen utilities. Intro Screen Janitor is conceptually similar to Intro Screen Sweeper, but with a ship that flies around to scuttle shipwrecks as they come up instead of simply having all of them explode at once. Intro Screen Targ...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

 The vanilla omnidirectional particle weapon is a level V weapon. If you run into one before Aurelius, it’s a fairly lucky find, really. The SmartCannon — especially if you have a cannon accelerator — is serviceable enough up until then. Personally I prefer an omniturbo with a laser collimator, whic...

Re: Living Minutes

 Well, I saw the request, remembered playing with color rotation in GIMP a ways back, so I figured I’d give it a shot. Glad they came out okay.  As for trimming stuff down, 2MB for filesize is practically nothing. Seriously, I wouldn’t even worry about it. (I did give you a 2-bit version of the Acim...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

 It doesn’t make a difference where a weapon is visually shown as being installed, no. The weapons Derakon is referring to are side-mounted weapons. You can have up to two on your ship, and they fire whenever you fire your main weapon. As was pointed out, they’re external weapons (and they’ll have a...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

 Yeah, you can only have one weapon active at a time. (Well, two, including the missile launcher, but that’s a different trigger key. Some mods work around this in assorted ways, but let’s not get into those just now.) You switch between them with the “W” key.

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

 Automatic targeting for omnidirectional or tracking weapons will typically pick the nearest hostile target. The targeting ROM lets you specify your target for those weapons with the “T” key. You can also target non-hostiles with the “F” key or clear your selected target with the “R” key. Also, targ...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

 Heh. The quick reply was mostly me still being awake at oh-god-thirty and having happened to poke at the forum at just the right time. I know what you mean about the nostalgia, though; it’s fond memories of Escape Velocity: Override that helped hook me on Transcendence.  Most UI and QoL mods are ei...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

 First off: Welcome back!  1: “WMD” is short for Weapons of Mass Destruction. I have no idea how long ago you last played, but if it’s been since, like, 1.2 or so, it’s worth noting that capital ships have interior HP instead of critical armor segments. WMD is the mechanic for weapons to do signific...

Re: One-Week Adventure

 Ranx already has content planned by Wolfy (once they get the engine support they need to really get into it), and the Commonwealth already has the majority of what currently in the game. I voted Anarchists, too.

 Speaking for myself, I’ve had a couple of sites (including the Ministry) spit out Cloudflare errors over the past few days, for whatever that’s worth.

Not in my experience. I have a computer and a tablet I regularly peek in on the forums and Ministry from, and never have issues with having been signed out.

 Not currently; it’s already been ticketed. Give it another alpha or two and it should be fixed.
