Re: Erial's starter questions

Just, what is a "pinata" ? Well, wikipedia can answer that very well for you: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi%C3%B1ata Slots Every ship has slots for upgrades. Some slots are only for weapons, some are multi purpose. Almost everything you can install takes a slot. There are some exceptions though, ...

Re: Erial's starter questions

Damaged weapons: In the early stages of the game you can sell damaged weapons off to Weapons dealers. They are relatively common and the cash is welcome, Same goes for damaged armor an shields, sell those at armor dealers. Tinkers offer better prices for damaged items, and you can craft some unique ...

Re: Setting up Wine for Transcendence on Linux

Edited the first post. Wine 4.17 changed the handling of audio, at least for popular music formats like mp3. Because of this, the music in Transcendence no longer worked. Turns out that now Winegstreamer is needed to play, and this caused Transcendence to crash in wine when changing music, or exitin...

Re: tractor beams query

How about creating a gravity well on the playership, that would drag in nearby ships? That code should be relatively simple looking at existing gravity sources in the game (Sirius) This is not really a tractor beam, but could be fun to try.

Re: Bosses by difficulty

I once pitted a Dragon slaver against a Deimos. The slaver won (quick and easy), it took two more Deimos destroyers to kill the slaver. However, never had trouble with it myself, usually because it is programmed to go after the player and that makes it vulnerable (you can reliably use kiting for exa...

 Yep, George has enhancers redone to work from an item picker instead of just applying to the currently selected primary weapon for either the current or next 1.9 alpha release (and I’m vaguely embarrassed that I’m not sure which).
It is in the 1.9 alpha, not in current....

Re: Hostile shipyard at Gunsan leads to incomplete mission

Something similar can happen with the Huari missions. When defending one of their fortresses against the sung fleet, one og my Gotha 400 missiles hit the fortress instead of the Earth slaver next to it. Instantly, the fortress became hostile and started firing on me instead of on the last remaining ...

Re: EU new copyright law

Indeed every county will have to ratify the proposals according to it's own laws. But then again, the European parliament vote has no meaning whatsoever, because they have no real power and are only an advisory part for the European Commission. Only the European Commission (you can't vote for them) ...

Re: Netherlands/Holland

Simple answer, if you try to apply for a passport from Holland, you will get nothing. Same goes for visa and other official documents. Look in your OS, it does not have a country setting named "Holland" . If you are anywhere in the world and ask for the embassy of Holland, in most countries you will...

Re: Couple of simple Suggestions.

@Derakon: No there is no guaranteed Tinker in Rigel, nor in any other system.

In my current game, there has not yet been any Tinker station at all and I am several systems past st. Kats.

Re: Netherlands/Holland

Well alright then, it is true that most people from (north/south)Holland use Holland as the Country name. It also holds true that most people from the other provinces do not, they use The Netherlands. Some other Countries have the same (even worse) issue, like China for example, which is also in fac...

Re: CSC screen descriptions

That is why the difficult explanation is there, read the constitution of The Ntherlands, this explains everything in great detail. Yet it is ofcourse a difficult document to read and quite large. The advantage is that you'll learn a great deal about our country, how it is currently being (mis)admini...

Re: CSC screen descriptions

Holland as the country name is correct, ( The ) Netherlands as the country name is correct Sometimes, people use one of our city's to refer to our nation; Amsterdam ^^ Unfortunately you are wrong, although there were times in history that you were right...
