Re: Multiverse open for uploading mods

One feature I have always found very useful on xelerus is the ability to search mods by "last updated". This lists the mods by the date that they were last uploaded. It lets you check if a favourite mod has been updated without having to check them all individually. Having this capability on the Mul...

Not sure if the dark-text-on-slightly-darker-background is intentional but it can be difficult to read.
I agree. ATM it is too hard to read. The text in a post needs to be brighter IMO.

Re: Continuous beam weapons

There is definitely a place for this in the game IMO. I would say introduce a weapon or two converted over to the new style and see what happens. A basic laser weapon that is available to buy? Maybe stick a converted particle weapon in the Ronin/C (or in every third or fourth Ronin/C)? This would al...

Re: Changing ships at shipyards

Ronin is difficult as a playership. Because it's a grey circle with a black border it is hard to tell which way it is facing, especially in map view. Resulting in erratic course and steering. Not recommended. There is merit to changing ships during the game. The EI500's two-weapon limit is a big dis...

Re: 1.8 Alpha 2

General feedback The tabbed buy lists are excellent. Easy to use with good category selection. And thank you for making them moddable. The Auroch's exhaust looks great. It seems to glow. Nice one (but it could have been like this for ages!) This is subjective, but I'm seeing a lot of games where the...

Re: Shiplog Captains Log

Nice work. And getting rid of those sounds is great. They were something you had to get used to. The find action is working for station names just not items. This is (probably) because the stationlog has been removed. In the station log screen the station inventories aren't available so the mod prob...

Re: scrSetListFilter query

Thank you once again. That will help. That explains why I could find the items in the debug screen but not in the game. The debug screen created another item with the data which I could find but it wasn't the item on the screen. Now I'm thinking of using a tabbed display to show either the 'transfer...

Re: initial item code in armorSelector help please

Excellent. That code did it. Now, no matter how I try to fool it, the first damaged segment is selected or the first segment if no armor is damaged. Thank you.

Re: [Meta] why are there so many mods on the forums but not Xelerus?

I only post mods on xelerus if they are complete and useful. Little example mods get posted on the forum. If you search "xelerus" and/or "upload" on the forum you will find info that makes it possible to upload mods. But if it's only a mod that's being developed as I go and probably has a few bugs i...
