YAY!

Thankoo!

*starts downloading*

:twisted:

EDIT:

I'm going through the early systems now, and for all I've seen more Dual-Particle Beam weapons than korolov stations (I havent seen any Korolovs before Rigel), and some of the topography is looking rather supiciously rectangular (I'll grab a screenie some time. There's some strangely rectangular asteroid fields...but I suppoe that's possible under the RNG).....it's looking great!

EDIT 2: Looks like the rectsngular asteroid fields was an RNG fluke.

And I just saw Iocrym Command Ship VS Iocrym Command Ship on the itro screen. They took out their shields with plasma weapons, then disintegrated each other :P

This still seems to be an issue with the korolov freighters however. I've consistently been getting freighters who won't fire their weapons (even freighters I'm not escorting: my EI100 and an Anatares II were flying side by side when some charon fighters flew over (practically right on top of the two), and neither shot a single shot.)

//edit// I reopened the ticket w/ my theory on why this is happening: http://wiki.neurohack.com/transcendence ... #comment:3

Any freighter that I've seen has been using it's weapons.

The AI upgrade is excellent so far. I'm losing less autons now. I'm still waiting for another Korolov station to try for a wingman and really put them to the test.

korolov freighters still do not seem tp want to fire weapons though.

Freighters seem to fire their weapons just fine for me...
Volkov does just fine for a wingman, staying out of my way and all. I dunno if he ever will repair himself, he hasn't taken damage yet.

I *LOVE* the new AI type. It actually seems to be maxspeed independant.

The only mod i am using is godmod, and that should not cause the freighters to not fire.

--update on non-firing freighters--
I finally got an Antares II that had functional weapons (it was on a mission to gate out)... but all the others just didn;t seem to fire

Maybe I just had a good first game last time, but I loaded up my start-of-heretic RC1 save into RC2, and actually found the RC2 version more difficult than the RC1. In the RC1 version, with a Kaidun-800, 150% IM90 and Lamplighter +Fast, I only lost the Domina station. I lost them all in RC2. Maybe my piloting is crappier in RC2. I'll play again later and see if I experience the same thing.
