For a long time I wanted to make a simpler version of the original BattleZone, so today I sat down and wrote this:

Battle Zone - Simulator

Battle Zone Simulator is a small mod that starts you in a system that will keep on spawning enemies for you to battle. You use the 'I'nvoke menu to control the simulator. It is along the same lines as the original BattleZone, just much simpler. There is plenty room for improvements, so please comment if there is something you would like to see.

Have fun!

Kind of "Lite" ...Maybe needs a little bit more..ScreenShot: ( Psst: no station to dock with but the station square is in the LRS )

" No Stations in Range" I figured you would have noticed from the picture: 1.01 and 1.05 do not show anything but the LRS square of the station: no stars, nothing on the map. can not dock with station that is invisible ( yet , but I was trying ).
I had this idea of an invisible station: caused by my Tech Bases originally not being dockable ( had to add dock ports to them ) but your Mod brang that idea back to drawing board...I just got to get the the mission to go there to work.

I am absolutely aware of the system being completely empty. That is the point, so to speak. If you notice, there is a message flashed to you at the start of the game, that you should press 'I' to start the simulation... did you try that?

My bad: i did not notice any message : I followed your instruction :
result: My OWN ship killed me!!
the game pulled a Mod .xml ship into the scene and a standard Wolfen at start is no match for it that early .
I will have to pull all mods out ( obviously ) to live long enough to appreciate this work.

Thank you for your guidance :I will enjoy the adventure now that I understand how to start it:)

If you give your modded ships an appropriate score, they will show up later.

I intend to add ways of buying new equipment, refueling, repairing armor etc. but I am not sure how the mechanics would work best yet. Any suggestions are welcome. I also intend to make it possible to define the ships you want to fight against, a bit like you can create battles with G.O.D mod.

thank you:) but it was still a shock ; I did not expect the feature to draw in anything but stock ships : Had I known it could ( and your .xml is kind of too much for my eyes ) I would have brang a bigger gun to the stick fight:)
I thank you again for this fun stuff and now that I know better: I can release the Kraken!...oh wait, Im the enemy in this mod?
No Kraken, Bad Kraken, get back in your cage!!!!

Also, the game sometimes starts me off at the stargate, and i cant get into the arena unless i use the auto pilot to orbit a gravity well.

@matix: i think you are referring to the standard BattleZone mod. It should be working now. If you get crashes on docking, it is because you don't have the DSF version from xelerus.
As for BattleZone - Simulator, I just went over it and fixed it for 1.08b.
