Re: CSC screen descriptions

I can do that and thanks. Would CSC-II Netherlands or CSC-II The Netherlands be the more correct form? I'm clueless on this sort of interpretation (and on geography as well). "The Netherlands" is official, but Netherlands is okay too. In fact it is an abbreviation of "Kingdom of the Netherlands" we...

Re: CSC screen descriptions

Just a little comment from a dutchman, Holland is only a province of the Netherlands. So if you name CSC's after countries, you should change Holland to The Netherlands instead. (we have north and south Holland as provinces actually)....

Re: Missing Huari

Usually I have no problems with either The Sung, or Charon Pirates. The lone Huari station was already very damaged when I got there. I was just saying that the Korolov missions were ALMOST impossible, certainly if you are new to the game when there is only one Korolov station. A new player does not...

Re: Missing Huari

Have had this once, only one Huari station in the game about 2 systems past Jiangs star. The station was destroyed by the Sung fleet during the mission to protect it so the Huari mission line was not possible in that game. Same can happen with Korolov, sometimes the only station is the one in Charon...

Re: 1.8 Release

FYI: Just released version 1.8.1, which has a few bugfixes: https://ministry.kronosaur.com/program.hexm?id=1&status=closed&tag=113 Still getting the "Unable to replace existing files" message after the download completes. Does this also affect others or should I debug my configuration (using Wine o...

Re: 1.8 Release

Upgrading from 1.7 does not work for me as well, I'm getting a "unable to replace existing files" message after the download has completed.

Re: So, what am I doing here?

Welcome back Xephyr! As one of the 20 people who actively played your Renegade extension :wink: and really liked it A LOT because it is really good! I was wondering why all of a sudden you left because I felt like you could really make this game even more interesting. So thanks for the explanation. ...

Re: 1.8 Beta 5

Just like the previous beta, it does not download automatically when starting Transcendence. Maybe because I am using Wine? But it was never an issue before....

Re: The connection between part I and II.

It would be nice if you start VoTG to have a choice of finished SoTP games to take the ship layout of that particular game with you. Of course that would imply that most (lategame) items of SoTP must be incorporated in VoTG, or that there is a library dependency for that.

Re: Stacking weapon upgrades fail?

After using a Weapon optimizer ROM no other updates can be applied to the weapon. Most ROM's work only up to level 6 devices/weapons/shields. Above that you need either cubes (for the Heisenmachines computer) or specialized devices to enhance/upgrade weapons/shields. some of these stack (like hexage...

Re: Are howitzers OP?

Haven't used te Kiloton in a while, should test that again. It used to be good around 1.0 but since then it declined and had less use, only good against swarms indeed. ThermoCannon and TM7 are favourites and I have once done a launcher only and could finish the game with that. I like the versatility...

Re: Are howitzers OP?

I don't generally use howitzers very much. I'm more of an ammo weapon fan. However, if I can get an Ion9 that will be my primary weapon probably until the end, combined with a launcher, either Rasiermesser or Heavy Nami. With that layout there is no trouble with Luminous drones, because the Ion9 wil...

Re: Some late-game bugs and/or gripes (CC, 1.8b4)

Well, As far as I know Halo gems and alien tech can be analyzed, but haven't tested that yet in the latest beta. Perhaps you haven't found all analyzer types yet? The analyzers are a very recent addition though, a few versions back there was no way to analyze stuff, other than using or applying the ...

Re: Project Renegade (Beta) (1.7)

Unfortunately there has not been any work done on Renegade for quite a long time. Xephyr is being missed here.... The mod is excellent on 1.7, since then there have been changes in vanilla code that this mod does not take in account and several thing do no longer work as intended. (like some of the ...
