Re: Semesta I.G.C

CM1 blaster quite often does not hit the main target, especially if the target is small. What happens is that I shoot the target, projectile reaches target and explodes harming everyone around except for the main target. It is not uncommon for modders to create "inaccurate" weapons on purpose. And ...

Re: About NPCService

I think all ships should need to refuel. This would also make it possible to chase down ships by letting them run out of fuel. Considerations are in place of course. All ships belonging to a faction can only refuel at their faction's stations, or stations that are neutral to them. There needs to be ...

Re: One-Week Adventure

I voted for the Anarchists, simply because in the vanilla game they are just cannon fodder. Much like the Centauri warlords. And their backstory is vague.

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: So I wanted to try the ion9 again in 1.7

I think Dvalin will be happy to meet such a legendary player again :) There are some good uses for the Ion9, it is for example one of the few weapons that are really effective against Luminous drones, even if they have ion immune shields, because of the shieldbuster properties. It is a good weapon a...

Re: Quick Question about looted items

And you can use damaged weapons and items to create (other) undamaged weapons and items at the Teraton factories. But they only appear near the end of the game (if at all) so don't wait for that and just don't loot them when you are in a system that offers no possibilities for getting profit out of ...

Military ROMs will always map every enemy station in the system.
Well not always, because they should only do that if there is a military or commonwealth presence in the system. If they are not there the Military Rom will tell you that and map nothing.

Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

The first time I played Transcendence there was no choice, only one ship was available, there was no Wolfen or EI500 to choose. And there were no cargo holds either.... So the game came a long way.... I remember vast swarms of Corsairs and Centauri raiders from those early days, maybe at least 25 or...

Re: New Player with Questions

So, in order to recieve the deflector reward, I have to not be as effective. Just don't kill to many pirate frigates, if you kill five of them, the Kronosaurus will be sent after you, killing the Kronosaurus will give you legend status, even if you have never done any Korolov mission. So do the mis...

Re: New Player with Questions

And if you take a wingman in the arena (which is very easy now) they will probably get damaged and never leave the arena because they will try to dock to repair, but the arena does not allow that. So they will keep trying forever to repair their armor in the arena. Order them to wait outside before ...

Re: Transcendence Picture thread

For some reason, the way that Java encodes JPG is incompatible with Transcendence and as a result the game cannot load the images. I have absolutely no idea why this is happening and it is very irritating. This is usually caused by incorrect JPG headers. One way to correct this is by opening the im...

Re: So I wanted to try the ion9 again in 1.7

And I've got it! In the system past the Rasiermesser factory there were a Dwarg fortress and a Penitent Sanctum. Nearby the CSC Pacifica had settled down. This caused massive uproar, as both the Dwarg and the Penitents did not go along really well together, and the zoanthrope hordes also covered the...

So I wanted to try the ion9 again in 1.7

But unfortunately didn't get one. This is the second time I tried, previous game I had 2 mules with the stuff Dvalin wants. So now I came to Dvalin with a cargohold full of stuff, and four mules carrying all the sorts of weapons and armor he desires in multitudes. Easily got the Cerraloy armor, the ...

Re: New Player with Questions

However, there are games when there is only one Korolov station, and that is the guaranteed one in Charon that gets destroyed by the pirates (unless the player can prevent it). The Korolov missions can also give you a wingman (Volkov) that can be helpful in the early systems because he has fairly po...

Re: New Player with Questions

The militia can give you missions, but if you have already cleaned out the entire system, or (not sure about this) if you do not seem to be powerful enough, they have nothing to do for you. You must be careful around slave camps, get rid of the guards, destroy the sung turrets from outside their ran...
