Re: function list stuff

It might be worthwhile adding string to the 'subset' function help somehow. (subset string pos [count]) -> string I'm not sure if this is technically different to lists but it would help new modders IMO. It currently only mentions lists. (subset list pos [count]) -> list ==================== minor: ...

Re: always pluralize currency name help please

Solved! I was trying to think of ways to remove the zero from the beginning of, eg, 0 credits. (fmtCurrency (scrGetData gScreen 'currency) 0) --> 0 credits or --> 0 yuan Thinking back to a hideous piece of code I wrote a while ago trying to extract a decimal UNID from a list entry I had a look at 's...

Re: recurring code query

Thanks. It works beautifully. I've used the 'for' example as I'm still working through how the 'apply' example works. The 'for' function runs the code and then runs it again for every value up to the 'to' value. And 'i' increases value by one on every cycle. Every cycle adds another line to 'desc' u...

Re: various questions and stuff

Is there a way of determining with code if an object is highlighted? As in 'setShowAsDestination'ed with the green or red circles showing around the object.

always pluralize currency name help please

The screen description of the currency dockscreen in the Taipan GodShip mod has the line of text: (cat "Enter amount of " (scrGetData gScreen 'currency) " to add or subtract.\n" where scrGetData 'currency is the list entry of the dockscreen which shows 'map'ped type names from typFind '$. Examples a...

recurring code query

Currently using hacky code to show the varying number of lines of text in a screen description in the Taipan GodShip mod. Currency type names from (typFind '$) are listed in a custompicker screen. The screen description shows the current player balance for every available currency and updates in OnP...

Re: 1.8 Beta 2 is ready!

Ronins look great. A nice surprise. And the turrets and duals too, and the new item images in VOTG. Anyone else getting docking problems at the Efreet Metropolis? "No station in range" when there are 5 ports empty. Have attached a patch for the mission screen error. https://ministry.kronosaur.com/re...

An upgraded version of TranscendentGeek's Elysium Player Storage Station. It overwrites the TanRuDorem station in the Elysium system to make it a secure storage bin for the player. Uses a separate modified dsRPGLoot dockscreen. Thanks to NMS for updated code. As per the original mod a jumpdrive is i...

Re: thanks to giantcabbage and George for debug console improvements

For information, gc has been at it again. From game version 1.8b1 there is now the ability to scroll up and down in the debug screen. So if the screen fills up and you want to see something that has disappeared above the top of the screen you can hit PgUp and PgDn to move the debug screen output up ...

Re: Ship scanning ROM

Ah, I might be able to make that work. It certainly makes more sense than what I was trying. I was looking at the Nav Signs, among other overlays, but had tried so many things that nothing made sense anymore. Not that I understood overlays to begin with. I was trying to put the text and code into th...

Re: various questions and stuff

Re: rpgSelectorInitialItem help please

Thank you. That fixed it. And actionGetMissiles returns the cursor to the installed launcher now as well. I have been moving away from nestedScreens when several other screens can navigate into one because it can lead to looping dockscreens. But knowing this This means you are not returning to the f...

But those are a bit more effort than exporting a text file and pasting it into the forums!
Yes but definitely worth it. They look great. Much easier to read.
Nice work.

Re: Getting started with git and github

I had a go at this the other day and it is easier than I expected. I will say that without gc's explanation above it would have been much harder if not impossible. Very well done, gc. I just followed gc's tutorial from Getting Started (using Git Bash) and went from there. I didn't bother with the Al...

Re: basic overwriting mod

In this section we will change the name of the Centauri Warlord camps in Stars Of The Pilgrim to 'Evil bad guy station'. Not very creative, I know, but we will be able to see the change quickly and easily in Eridani. Firstly we will change the UNID to give a better idea of what we are doing. Delete ...
