Hi guys, I'm going to start Succession #2. Unlike the first succession, this one has lots of mods, and hopefully we won't encounter a mod-related crash >.>
This isn't permadeath, and so death is allowed, even welcome, if it means more people will take turns.

We'll be doing The Network, so brace yourselves!
Same basic rules apply:
-Each Player will take a turn, which will consist of:
-one system. Each player is responsible for cleaning out the system as much as they can (or leave stations alive for some loot grinding)
-can buy one PSD ship (but take care of it, and don't lose other people's ships!)
* if you don't want to lose somebody else's ship I recommend leaving it near an allied station and to mark it on Captain's Log. The only thing is parallax means there's no sitting on anything anymore, so PLEASE be careful with other people's ships.
-the Freighter is everybody's ship, so if you lose your personal PSD ship you'll have to use the freighter. (I'll try to get to Rigel so I can buy myself an Agauptera >.>)
-post before you take a turn, and you have six (6) hours to complete it before someone else can take a turn in your stead.
-Name the save file as:
Succession2-TurnX[PlayerNameHere]
*Example: Succession2-Turn1[RPC]
-upload the .sav file to this thread and tell us any major events, like losing a ship.


I think that's all for now. Since more people will play we could have more people play per day, but please adhere to the rules and have fun!

Some things to note:
I included Gravity so that all the loot goes to the star. This is great for saving time, but not when there are Salvagers or Gaians. If anybody is going to buy a freighter I suggest going to the settings.xml of gravity (Extensions/DySys Cuts/Gravity/GravitySettings.xml)to turn it off if they don't like it.
I merged Planet Parallax with Parallax Worlds, so Digdug's awesome biosphere planets don't show up as often, but only when a biosphere planet is present.
Sometimes Transcendence crashes without actually counting as a death on startup, just restart and it'll work. For some reason it doesn't count as a death though.

My Turn:
Currently I started in the freighter. Lots of loot, and you can read Captain's Log for some details.
Not much, although I do recommend having somebody check out the Thunderbird in the dry dock. Looks like it has 3 weapon mounts o.O
I've left the dry dock unused for the next player.

Neuromancer: if you're reading this buy the Wolfen and get to St. Kats! :D

If there's a mod I left out or it's outdated tell me so that we can fix it before we get too invested in this save.

I'd love to, but I haven't even tried the Network yet, and I'd definitely like some experience with it before using it in a game that will affect other people. Sorry. :(

Ok, found a duplicate Tesseract Cargo hold mod in the extensions. I'm not going to update though if people aren't going to play :/

I think there's a missing close bracket somewhere in the packer.xml in the mining pack, but I couldn't find it easily with Notepad++ so I just downloaded version 1.04 from Xelerus and replaced the one you uploaded. I noticed that the xml file is about half the size so I'm not sure what I'm missing, but it's stable at least. I'll try to run through a system tomorrow sometime and reupload the sav file unless someone else gets to it first.

I might join but I've been pretty busy lately so I might not find time for it. Also, gravity. Eugh. I don't like gravity.

I have a problem similar to Cimanyd's, only there's several (very influential) mods in this game I have not played yet. PSD, The Network, Gravity to name a few small ones...

That and that life is throwing us some really terrible balls right now, so I am a little short on time. But I might just download a copy and give it a go while not telling and see what happens. If the results are not too terrible I might even post and give it a go for real.

But a good thing you started this up RPC ! Two thumbs up on that.

Yeah, no problem Eastwood. I think I picked the wrong time since everybody's got an issue D:
Mining pack does have a mismatched paren, I'll try to look for it.
As for influential mods, that's why we're playing them, to experience a fundamentally different Transcendence experince, and since it's super hard, nobody should really be ashamed of dying (I could make a guarantee that everybody would die at least once >.> ).
Also, re: gravity: there's a settings.xml where you can turn gravity off. You can turn it off during your turn if you want.

Ok, I think I got the mismatched paren with Mining Pack: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/23352181/TG_WTS_MiningPack.7z
Are there other bugs?
I got 1.08f today, going to go through all my mods now D:

That new mining pack seems to have fixed the problem. I haven't found any other issues so far. 1.08f does seem to break everything at this point though.
