[CC][Minor] Item icon nitpick

Lanthanum glass has the medical supplies icon when it isn't actually medically related. If the icon didn't have a cross on the side it wouldn't be an issue, but as is it looks a touch odd.

Re: [rc2] Shop can spawn item with bonus greater than maxHPB

I think I kinda like this- presumably stations have manufacturing facilities that you can't match with a small vessel in mid flight. The otherwise impossible items should also have a suitably excessive price tag, though.

Re: 1.2 RC 2

Capital ships are harder because they got internal damage now. Phobos Dreadnoughts are almost impossible without exceptional weapons now, and other big ships are much harder (The Ranx Dreadnought upgraded from loot piñata to a real opponent now) I think this was supposed to be toned down a little f...

I'm still seeing this in 1.2rc2. Every time I return to a system with ferians, half of them will make a mass exodus.

Re: 1.2 RC 2

the mayakev blast enhancer that gives +50% to the mark 3 howitzer DOES NOT enhance the dual mark 3 howitzer.. i thought this was maybe the case with all custom weapons, but then i went ant got the omni x ray and it gets the full +75% with the laser collimator.. slight incongruity it would seem.

Re: [1.2 RC 2: Unresolved IM90 & Lamplighter Installation Is

At the moment things work as they work at the moment. In future versions anything could change. But what I was saying is that despite the symptoms being the same, the underlying causes are different: The Taikon IM90 isn't installed by Taikon because the code that says Taikon can install Taikon stuff...

Re: 1.2RC2 'recusion overflow (in T-Lisp)' gives bad error

Question: does it mean that the function loop is going to crash after 1944 loops ? Pretty much, but it isnt due to the loop-like nature, but to the repeated nesting of function calls If function1 calls function2 which calls function3 which calls <I am not going to type ~2000 of these> which calls f...

Re: 1.2RC2 'recusion overflow (in T-Lisp)' gives bad error

The behaviour isn't wrong, its just not giving details of the exception. This particular recursion test is inevitably going to fail on the call to printTo, because if it has enough stack to get the printTo done then it has enough stack for another TST_printRecurse call. So you get an (unlabelled) ov...

Re: [1.2 RC 2: Unresolved IM90 & Lamplighter Installation Is

For the Taikon /IM90 issue, the behaviour doesn't match the comment here at about line 200 of RPGCode.xml ; If we don't have the technology, we cannot install ; (except for specific items that we know about) (or (gr (itmGetLevel thisItem) (if (@ data 'maxTechLevel) (@ data 'maxTechLevel) 30)) (and (...

Re: 1.2 Beta 4

My suggestion about that particular one: Just use the charon pirates fortress image for the primary stronghold so the player knows there is something special about it and doesnt destroy it (if he wants to do Korolov missions). This would, of course, also require that you no longer automatically get...

Re: [1.2b3] Balance issues?

My initial thought had been that enemies shouldn't have something so ludicrously overpowered. On further consideration, I am forced to conclude that, in actual fact, players shouldn't have something so ludicrously overpowered.

But, until it gets rebalanced, I'm off to gleefully nuke something.

Re: Arena walls/gate system need to go

I kinda like the useless-dead-end-gate idea. Doesn't even need to be a 'useless' system- I can easily imagine some cosmic event or another flinging a gate into empty interstellar space. It might even happen deliberately- build a gate pair, fling one end at the destination star, set a timer for a few...

Thrust/Stop should cancel docking

I think it would be intuitively helpful if using either the thrust or the stop command cancelled any in-progress docking maneuver. Any key held down before the docking command, or released during docking, would have no effect, just starting a new command. The rationale here is: (a) "take evasive act...

Hmm. Digging through the code, comments seem to imply that the techCriteria and maxTechLevel must *both* be met for an install. Let me go test it and I'll append the results... Yep, Taikon 'do not have the technology' to install a TK10 Trident cannon (the cheapest thing I could grab from Eridani). S...
