Re: Britannia, Fleet and Ares ideas

It's easy enough to test more thoroughly, at least. 30 second mod could do it, so I'll give it a try with godmod later.

Re: Make Luminous more intrusive in EP

Engine changes I'm working on will likely make Luminous drones more effective when their velocity is similar to their target's. They might be too nasty if it sometimes isn't possible to outrun them. Sounds exciting - I look forward to it! But I agree with most of the rest of the ideas in this threa...

Re: Make Luminous more intrusive in EP

Most stock ships(especially the ones people use more often) are already faster than them Not true without an engine upgrade. Without engine upgrade, only three out of the nine starter ships are faster than .20c: Wolfen, Freyr, and Raijin. Those at .20c are: Sapphire, Hercules, and Spartan. The rema...

Re: Britannia, Fleet and Ares ideas

I don't think I've ever hit the back 50 percent of a Wind Slaver. Considering 1 hit from most weapons destroys them, the effect of 1 more segment that is unlikely to ever be hit would be negligible.

Re: Britannia, Fleet and Ares ideas

Britannia's classic armament is decent, although they should have a way to reload their launchers. Isn't that what the reload method handles? I never really looked into it. Sandstorm should lose two armor segments (from four to two) and gain at enough speed for at least .22c, but .25c would be bett...

Re: Make Luminous more intrusive in EP

Classic drones are not that slow, with .20c and can spin on a dime, Anything .20c or faster(virtually any ship by the endgame, and most base playerships) will have the drone constantly facing towards them, unable to do any damage, as long as they are drifting away. They won't get a shot off against...

Re: Make Luminous more intrusive in EP

I've thought about the same thing - a less ambitious idea on this subject would involve the following: - Maintain presence of a few wandering hunter - killers in the Oromarch system, so that the player can't attack Luminous's ring of stations without retaliation. - Dispatch LHK's against players tha...

Re: Frontier Download Link

In case anyone wants a map:

Eridani --> Hamedas --> Chorin --> Spartacus --> Amundsen --> Kolonius --> Pender's Star --> Juno --> LLorius --> Queren --> Remora --> Nakura --> Piori-pyu --> Torin --> Urion --> Nino --> Jakarta

I am not sure, but I believe that this is consistent across games.

Re: Targeting ROM reveals equipment

It still feels like something that would excessively complicate the interface, especially if the player is expected to configure it. A ROM that let the user press a secondary key to highlight the interior compartments of on - screen enemies might be useful, though. It'd be useful to all players, and...

I think that is too much, as it can be seen on intro screen.
I've got to agree here. I don't see a practical use for the information. That said, I'd love to see more ROMs added to the game with various functionalities.

Re: Frontier Download Link

In the interest of separating the weapons a player is likely to encounter from the ones that can only be found through winning the war on drugs (by setting all the dealers on fire), I've described my new arsenal below. Note that, because I've already killed everything hostile to me except the last r...

Re: Frontier Download Link

I believe the game ends in the Jakarta system. I have used a map ROM and found no forward stargate. I have yet to encounter any Star Destroyers, so I've got to wonder where I'd get one of those. I encountered one pod using enemy, though I don't know whether I died or killed it. Ditto one or two alie...
