Fantastic George! Sadly, my work computer is Policy-locked to Windows XP logo screensaver. I hope you can add the keyboard controls like in the game intro.

Edit: adding a few of my favorite images from the screensaver:

The ICS vs the zoahatra is an interesting battle.

The Ranx Dreadnought is running away from the weaker freighters because it's out of ammo leaving this as a stalemate scenario.

Na don't add keyboard controls. Add options to set the kind and number of ships appearing, so we can open up a betting service and stream the fights live. XD

ICS vs. ark of purity if I remember right.

I have this set to go off as my screensaver on my IBM after one minute. This is the first time in four years that I've set a screensaver. :shock:

It seems that ships currently in focus disappear on occasion, much like how ships in focus disappear for no reason occasionally in the game's main menu. They don't die from gunfire or radiation; they just disappear. Is this intentional?

I also note that the Katana Star Cannon appears to have a "piercing effect"; it goes through the target on occasion, hitting it several times in the process.

Yeah; there is a timer to prevent stale-mates. Ie, if you had two mules fighting eachother... yeah.

I noticed over the past few days that, the moment the ICS becomes the enemy, there is nothing that can kill it.

xeno arks can in theory kill it, so can a few other ships

but ICS vs. ICS tends to be realy long, so the inactivity timer kills off the ICS in focus.

Perhapse there should be a timer on the enemy ships as well?

A trick I use (ingame) is to have 500 hornets as wingmen, ordered to "break and attack", while I'm doing later-level Korolov missions. THus when a firgate turns up, the hornets go and get killed, and the frigate gets damaged (yes, 500 hornets cannot usually take out a charon frigate. Sad, no?)

in Shipyards you can find a post I did there on the ScreenSaver, but for those of you that don't wear a hard hat, I guess this department is ok too :)

https://www.neurohack.com/downloads/TransSaver10.zip

The file is 10.0 MB, so if you are on a metered connection, you might want to know that ahead of time.

If that link fails, check the alternative one in the Shipyard
