Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

Minotaur is a bit thin, despite being long. I do not mind Centurions, at least the X variant, having 200 tons of cargo. Gives them something over earlier ships, and in case of Centurion/X, faster option over Minotaur. I almost consider Minotaur the one playership to rule them all (regarding combat, ...

Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

Has anyone tried part 2: Vault of the Galaxy for beta 1? I visited the Ship Brokers, but none of them have ships for sale. Hard to get the starter ship you need from Exsillium's Ship Broker if a ship is not offered for sale. I logged to Multiverse to see if the AncientRaces library was updated, but ...

Re: Batteries

Solar armor does power storage or power savings discount, although you need to be near a sun for that benefit. Other armor probably could emulate that, although the modder probably will not have access to the blue bars that solar armor use to show power savings, if making such armor non-reliant on t...

Re: Batteries

I would not use them, especially if I need a device slot to use it. If I need that much power to use a battery, ten to fifteen seconds would not be enough time. Just suck it up and get a bigger reactor.

Re: The Final Strike

APA can be put on a swivel. I have not tried it in your mod, but I have installed APAs on a modified test Aquila adapted for upcoming Playership Drones v8, which uses DeviceSlots like the Minotaur (but with different criteria). DeviceSlots with linked-fire can have criteria that filters acceptable w...

Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

As JohnBWatson said, lower-end ships could be made for sale, and I think the EI100 could work as an alternative to the EI500. I can imagine it being compelling during the early game if you could only afford an EI100 with decent equipment, especially if you were otherwise struggling to loot or buy a...

Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

The "NoPiracyCheck" only applies to freighters with that flag. What that means is the player can kill that particular freighter (the mission Scarab in your example) only without getting blamed for piracy. "NoPiracyCheck" is applied to freighters as needed. Putting the check on your bloodthirsty and ...

Playership Drones was originally made to give the player additional and upgradable wingmen on demand. Additional ship types available for play was added later. As for today... Purpose of Playership Drones * Allow player to acquire more ships to build a fleet. * Expand selection of available ships be...

Re: Todo for next version of Playership Drones.

It has been over five years since the OP. Much of the todo list was implemented for Playership Drones v7 and for its time, it worked well enough. However, with 1.8 coming and limited time to work on Playership Drones, maintaining it is enough work. Today, Playership Drones v7 is outdated and needs t...

Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

After some experimenting, it is possible to have playership drone wingmen use stock ships and have their Communications and Events tacked on later with various event (handling) functions. In theory, I could probably make playership drones use mostly stock ships and add custom ships solely for starte...

Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

Just started a rewrite for Playership Drones. So far, I am simply experimenting and laying the ground work for updating it to 1.8. Assuming that I can rewrite Playership Drones and get it working for 1.8, I do not know how when it will be ready. While experimenting with Ship Broker, I noticed ships ...

Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

I do not remember. The point of mentioning corpses is it is a one-shot item that provides permanent character power. That item could be named a scroll, gem, food, potion, software, present, whatever. While many such items provide an immediate effect, others could provide permanent power... or take i...

Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

Not saying that it is not frustrating. I wish targeting was on by default like autopilot. It would be like if Endless Sky required an item upgrade before player could use targeting. Consumables providing permanent upgrades, like eating various corpses in Nethack? (e.g., eat black dragon for disinteg...
