Re: The Ark : has anybody shot it?

It has happened to me once as well, just one shot too many and poof, no wreck to loot.....
After that I have become a bit more careful, use a big gun with WMD to almost kill the ark and finish it off with something less likely to blow up the wreck. Usually some ion weapon (without WMD) will do.

Re: Transcendence 1.7 Released!

They still exist in 1.7. But it is a rare find. Ususally by the time I can get one, I don't need it really because of the large accumulating amounts of Stiletto's that can take me well past St. Kats. I like to combine them with a spread weapon, like the Morningstar or later the Ion Flame Cannon in c...

Re: Transcendence 1.7 Released!

First thing I always go for with the EI500 is a missile launcher. I don't take on enemies I cannot handle with the omni laser. It is tough, but the NAMI launcher usually is available in Eridani. From then on the missiles are primary weapons until the omni laser can be ditched for something better (l...

They should have a 50% chance of spawning at any colony, dockyard, or refinery. If you can't find any that's a problem, and I'll make them more common.
After 5 systems in Citadel space, still no Vallican reactors anywhere, made a ticket for it on the Ministry.

Re: Project Renegade (Beta) (1.7)

Looks good, still no Vallican reactors anymore :( I used to love the 75MW model. Just big enough for most of the ships to power safely and lasts long enough to clean an entire system.

Re: Transcendence 1.7 Released!

Generally the games I play with the EI500 are by far the easiest to finish. Once you have it equipped with good armor, decent shield, a launcher and a good omni weapon (omni thermo lasts easily to the end) it can function as a missile boat with lots of cargo capacity. This will guarantee a big cashf...

Re: Project Renegade (Beta) (1.7)

Unfortunately the patch does break the game. Trying to load it gives me a window with the title Unable to load game with the text: unable to find type: a0122336 (missing mod?)
to bad, was halfway through citadel space :(

Had to start a new game and so far that works fine

Re: Transcendence 1.7 Released!

The EI500 might actually make good use of mining pods, it can carry a lot of them. They don't take up any slot. Perhaps they need some improvements, before being very usable. but for weaponless mining they could be the answer. It has been a long time since I actually did active mining. Of course I p...

Re: Project Renegade (Beta) (1.7)

Does this version break previous saves?

Citadel colonies no longer buy stuff, got a full hold of stuff they used to buy and they keep telling me I have nothing to sell.

Setting up Wine for Transcendence on Linux

So you have installed Linux and wonder if you can still play your favourite game? Yes you can, Transcendence works great on Wine, but you'll need to configure it right. First, best support for graphics is in the latest development Wine versions. As I am writing, this is Wine 2.2 but latest stable sh...

Re: 1.7 Beta 4 and Part II Alpha Test

After I destroy a Pteravore Lair, with my first approach of the Lair after destruction, I still get a bunch of angry Pteravores coming after me. The ones that I fail to destroy, do their damage to my ship, then return to the destroyed Lair and then disappear forever it seems. Not sure if this is a ...

Re: Project Renegade (Beta) (1.7)

Well just started again in 1.7rc1 with Renegade. No problems yet, but missing the Vallican reactors that were available in 0.2, only Nova reactors are offered so far. So I upgraded my Vallican 20 to a Nova 50 and when I refuel they fill me up with Uranium rods. :? This produces radioactive waste in ...

Re: Discuss- should disposable items disappear when out of charges?

It would be nice to know wether a disposable device is empty or not. But I don't think it should disappear when empty. However it should be relatively easy to change the description of the device as soon as you detect it is empty. This does make it easier to discard the item, or have it refilled (if...

Re: 1.7 Beta 5

1.7 beta 5 crashes immediately on start. This is in wine on Linux. Previous version 1.7 beta 4 worked flawless.

I'll see if I can get it to work somehow, but I think this is a very serious bug. Will post it on the ministry.

Re: What armour and weapons do I need...?

The shield you had is probably the Invincible class. It is a good shield, even better if you use Hiro's shield optimiser on it. But you should ditch it as soon as (or before) you enter the outer realm. The enemies there are powerfull enough to breach that shield with a few shots and you'll be comple...
