Re: Black Market, CSC Medical

Yeah, there are thresholds for donating and an item that you get at each threshold. This is a per donation thing, though, so multiple small donations will just get you a bunch of wine bottles, and donating a lot of items twice will get you two mammoth deflectors. It's not the best system, but the co...

Re: WIP Proposal: Outlaw Miner Overhaul

I do agree on endless reinforcements....but that's a separate issue. It is beyond the scope of this project. Adding it would also create more work down the line when/if changes to general respawns are handled. There's a misunderstanding there. I meant adding a script that takes note of its guards o...

Re: WIP Proposal: Outlaw Miner Overhaul

If Outlaw Miners get a revamp, it should preserve factional uniqueness and try to get rid of cheap weaknesses. Right now, they've got turrets for close range encounters - they don't need anything else that's good up close but terrible at a distance. They're also rather poor by definition(otherwise t...

Re: 1.8 Alpha 2

After downloading the upgrade, it came up with "Unable to replace existing files". In the debug.log it says: Upgrading Transcendence. Unable to rename Transcendence.tdb to Delete_Transcendence.tdb. That sounds like it might be a permissions issue. I'm not sure if those can be fixed on George's end,...

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

Later in the game you can find linked-fire weapons that can fire at the same time as your main weapon. However, in addition to eating into your energy budget, they tend to be externally-mounted, which means they can easily be damaged (irreparably in most cases) by enemy weapons' fire. Note that thi...

Re: [Discussion] Point defense, missile HP and Aegis.

Target selection: Option 1: Just target the viable projectile that will hit us soonest. A viable projectile: (a) - is either locked onto us with tracking capability or on course to hit us(for most cases, we can cheat here and add the 'target' of a projectile, the thing the ship that fired it was lo...

Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

I rarely fail to find a cargo hold in the first few systems, but I wouldn't object to it being more reliable. Maybe shipyards should carry other non-combat equipment, like cargo holds and drives? Yes I thought of that too, a shipyard and Korolov would be the most likely place to buy and install a s...

Re: Destroyed Failsafe at OroMarch system but then no response

Oromarch needs a total rework. The story breaks completely if you attack without talking to Lilith first.

Re: Buff the Centauri Warlords

I'm all for buffing the excessively weak ships to the point where their existence makes sense, though I'd do it a bit more simply. I don't think they need any more plot content - there are other factions in much greater need, and they've already got several missions that involve them. -Make Centuari...

Re: One-Week Adventure

The poll is still ongoing, but Komoro is the most popular right now; I'll consider switching if we end up with a clear winner. For this adventure I'm going to have the prep-work laid out ahead of time. This is similar to how I've been working on the dev wiki, but for this I'm going to try to keep t...

Re: About NPCService

One thing at a time. Before even considering this, we need to get the AI to a standard where something like this would be viable. This would mean implementing ammo restocking for NPC ships, fixing kiting, and making the guard routine less predictable/more responsive to the situation at hand(stations...

We're going to try to stream part of the event. If you get on Discord or IRC I'll relay questions in addition to the ones as part of the talk.
Got a recording of the stream? That sounds interesting.
