Zanitas & Lazarus

While chatting on IRC some time back and looking through all the active tickets on trac (what was I thinking?!), I brought up the subject of the Gaian Demolition Cannon and Lazarus Shield Generator when Wolfy and Star Weaver were present. We had quite a few rounds of lively discussion (which also in...

Re: 1.08f

This was reported on trac by me a while back, but I thought I should mention it here anyway. It seems that 1.08f is a little bit more stringent while checking UNIDs upon startup. If an extension declares a UNID, but does not specify its container, 1.08f will abort with an error message. Yay! First p...

Re: Biggest initial hurdles?

The first hurdle I encountered was keeping enough credits to refuel my ship.

The next hurdle was trying to hit stuff I wanted to hit using weapons of mass.

The third hurdle was Arco Vaughn.

Re: Facebook and Transcendence, the Quiet Music.

Well, the IRC channel is ridiculously active ... and why shouldn't it be? It's a coder's haven, that place is. I've personally made leaps and bounds of progress on my Descendence mod just by visiting there.

If you have enough credits, look around for better armour. If you can get 4 segments of Carbide Carapace, you probably won't need to worry about armour for the rest of the game. Anything that has close to 250 HP as well as blast, particle, ion and/or thermo resistance should do nicely. Keep the Lanc...

Attack the Ferians and steal all their rin? I've not done it, but I've seen some people suggesting this as a quick way to purchase powerful items from the Ringers, Taikon and Teratons.

How about a reactor that can utilise any form of fuel possible, but cannot be upgraded in any way and drains fuel much faster than most other reactors?

Turning the engine off makes you stop; the principal of an intertialess ship is that it can translocate your ship without giving it inertia, thus once it is deactivated, it will nolonger move. It doesn't, Wolfy. You're forgetting the default thrusters. The moment the inertialess drive is switched o...

In that case, maybe a new kind of reactor can be added into the game, much like how Titanium Barricades are used as station armour but can also be mounted on a ship given sufficient provisions. A 10 GW reactor that weighs 60 tons, for instance.

I don't like using it. It sounds fun, but when you get attacked, you'll realise that, not only does it drain a huge amount of reactor power, it also robs you of the ability to fire while flying in reverse. In a game like this, exploiting inertia to attack your pursuers or deflect shots coming at you...

Additional Credits

With the release of that heavy fighter I ported into the game last month and after seeing how additional credits were added into the game with the Wyvera and Movable Barricades mods installed, I decided to make my own. However, the problem I have with merely copy-editing what Wolfy added via the Wyv...

Some of the most critically acclaimed role-playing games on the market have a number of side missions to them (EV Nova; Freelancer), and - well, since I can't think of a better example - look at how the Pokemon anime is: a ten-year-old who originally sets out to be a Pokemon Master gets sidetracked ...

I'd have gotten... anyother level X weapon other than the positron lancer (or iocrym repeller). The Positron lancer uses way to much power for the rather underwhelming performance it gives. I probably should have went for that Ion Flame Cannon I saw in a Teraton Nest, then. Oh well, time to farm so...
