Re: Ship scanning ROM

The "Smart Target Assistance" is really good, DigaRW. You get enough time to read the info without it getting in the way. Nice. I like your dockscreen idea as well. That would allow a lot more info to be shown. If I can't get text to format how I like on the screen, I'll do a mod ROM that shows a d...

Re: various questions and stuff

Yes. The Urak Sentinel Has always been an Auton. In earlier versions of the gme it would have been described as : score= "145" techOrder= "mech" Your only real encounter with the Urak Faction itself is at the Fortress and it's Destroyers. I have always doubted there was an actual Urak presence at th...

Mars Curiosity Celebrates Sol 2,000

Re: Batteries

Shocking.....

Batteries has already been in the game for some time now - since 2010

Of course, you would have to download the extension.

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...

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 start...

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: Multiverse mods

I haven't uploaded any because (as sjf says) there is no ability to remove a mod from your list yet. It's already annoying without even more mods trying to download all the time. I'm assuming most modders haven't done this for this very reason. Also the ability to limit the list by mod type (eg pla...

Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

I would point out that in terms of lore you've just retconned Pacific Defense from a ship company to a wider arms dealer, instead of just filling the gap in the NAMI matter weapons which would probably have been more elegant. In a extension I once imagined Pacific Defense as an Arms / Armor Dealer ...

Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

On another note, I like the Fleet mission rebalance. Scarab escort missions are much harder now, and the Convoy mission(while bereft of variants now) actually rewards players that use their squadrons. First time the attack in formation command has been useful. I'd still swap the Aurochs and Scarab ...

Re: 1.8 Beta 1 is ready!

- Early ships are pretty expensive for when they show up, but they've got equipment that isn't for sale yet. Overall, it's an interesting tradeoff, though I don't see anyone having 100k credits by Rigel. Says the fighter to the Miner....... I know Miners in the real world don't exactly have any hop...
