single crashes - report or not?

I get single game crashes on very infrequent occasions that aren't due to something I'm doing with a mod. I am always off-line when playing so was wondering if there is any value in posting the debug logs for these crashes in the Ministry crash section? When something happens to cause a crash but it...

Re: Korolov Mission and the Charon Frigates

Well done on the permadeath game! Regarding the frigates, I find that getting in between the frigate and the freighter and intercepting the weapons fire with your ship will help to keep the freighter alive for a bit longer. EI7000 is the choice of freighters to escort as it has good shields, a turbo...

auton naming bug?

Despite trying many different ways I can't seem to get (itmGetName whicheverAuton 'actual) to return the actual name of an unidentified auton, eg 'TX3 eplorer auton'. All it will do is return "auton with squiggly markings" or similar. It works if the auton is already identified. The same code works ...

Re: Living Minutes

Link not working.

Code: Select all

404. That’s an error.

The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

Re: Multiverse Connection Issue?

Just tried myself. It took a long time to sign in and when it finally did got the error message "Error from Multiverse: Unable to send command to server." Debug log showed "All resources downloaded" as well. Collections folder still empty.

Server having a bad day. Try again later.

Re: 1.8 Alpha 3

I love the sudden transition from human space into the unknowns of the galaxy, as well the organic feel of all the new alien races. The game itself have only gotten more beautiful and I can't wait for the first version of part II to be officially released... I couldn't agree more. Given it's the sa...

farming out mission work

I was thinking of putting a version of The Network mod on the Multiverse when 1.8 comes out. It's a great mod. Pretty much everything works because all that is really involved is copying vanilla code into the mod and updating the custom systems. But it needs two custom missions finished and converte...

A forum tutorial or wiki page on the intro screen would be nice.

Re: Multiverse open for uploading mods

I haven't uploaded any mods to the Multiverse yet because I'm waiting for the "remove from Collection" option. So I don't know if mods can be tagged with different categories like xelerus. Examples include 'Playership, Development, Godmod, Weapon'. This makes it possible for only mods with the 'Play...

Re: new language guidelines help please

The {}s create a struct. You could do it with (struct) and you could do it in advance and save it to a variable, but usually it's easier to do it inside the translate function call. The key/value pairs in the data argument are added to gData and parameters (words with % signs on either side) in the...

Re: partial name item search query

Thanks, that is a much better way of doing it. It never occurred to me to put the code in the action. Then the same station can handle everything including any future features. Good stuff. One thing I was wondering is whether I need to destroy the stations after using them. If I'm doing a lot of tes...

Re: Request a modding tutorial

A tutorial on enhancements would be good. I believe that there were some changes recently. Specifically what can be done to weapons, but all info would be good. Also some info on the range available for enhancements. I think the range for increasing fire rate is 1 to 15 but is 15 faster or slower th...

Re: Scorpion GodPlayership

Version 3 now on xelerus. Changes to the Korolov ranking code means this version doesn't work in 1.7 (V2 may not have either, I don't think I checked!). Requires 1.8a3 (API 38) but will probably work in 1.8a2 if you change the APIVersion=. Not much change but the the Create items section now has a s...

Re: Scorpion GodPlayership

Version 3 Requires 1.8a3 or higher due to changes in Korolov code. Items section now has a search function. Type in part of the item name to see a list of items with that text in their names. In-system travel now shows ships with docking ports as well as CSCs. A custom function to convert decimal nu...
