Re: Any way of installing this?

Taikon can install up to level 11 devices. Anything higher like the disintegrator is impossible to install in part 1.

Re: PM's mods

Yet another reupload of Drake Technologies with minor tweaks to Xelerus. Added more zapsats, and changed the Earthdrake weapons to be lighter.

Re: Do cannon accelterators stack?

If we use E=mc2 as a guide, then +50% damage from cannon accelerator should increase shot speed by about 22%. A shot with original speed of 40 would have a speed of about 49. If lifetime is the same, the weapon would gain more range too. For comparison's sake, if damage was quadrupled, then shot spe...

Re: PM's mods

Reuploaded Drake Technologies to Xelerus again. This one is some minor item tweaks, based on the previous post. Tier shields are now Brik's, and Gilded and some other armors are now Imagik's. Added cloaked armor for Drake, which is simply shielded armor with stealth that cost and weigh more. (Cloake...

Re: 1.9 Beta 2

After poking through the xml files recently, I noticed the addition of the Psych mission files, and the Commonwealth hospitals have been turned into a death camp. It has a press button to die option.

Re: 1.9 Beta 2

Challenge mode is classic "fair" mode where damage is unadjusted for both sides. Permadeath is Challenge with permadeath enforced. Since the latest release is unstable, permadeath is not a good idea right now.

Re: PM's mods

Reuploaded Drake Technologies to Xelerus again. Release was delayed for various reasons, among them is my dev computer is non-operational at the moment. Thus, I will be unable to continue work on my mods for some time. As for the update, here are changes I remember at the moment... * Flare guns fire...

Re: PM's mods

Reuploaded Drake Technologies to Xelerus. This update makes minor tweaks to two beam weapons. IMPORTANT! BUG ALERT! Both Drake Technologies and Star Castle arcade have become unstable in 1.9b2 and may crash suddenly and unexpectedly. Recurring events, which are used heavily by the zapsats in Drake T...

Re: PM's mods

Updated and uploaded Drake Technologies Alpha , Playership Drones , and Star Castle Arcade to Xelerus. Playership Drones and Star Castle Arcade merely received an apiVersion change from 49 to 50. No other changes. Drake Technologies received more than an apiVersion update. Some changes that come to ...

Re: PM's mods

Just a quick note that I am working on another update to Drake Technologies, given the changes wrought by 1.9 beta 2, especially with autons. I am considering redo-ing the drone bays. For the next attempt, I will probably take an idea from my recently finished missile forge hold and make the new dro...

Re: PM's mods

Reuploaded Drake Technologies to Xelerus. The highlight of this update is a new "missile forge" hold. It is level 4 and "rare". In addition to adding up to 150 tons of capacity like most other holds, it lets the player feed ore and industrial resources to the forge for resource points and spend them...

Re: I want to talk about the direction of gameplay. I don't feel it is good.

I agree, Strongholds are a pain now. But the excavation pods do have a use now! That would be nice, except that mining equipment in a vanilla game (no Corporate Command, no Near Stars) are too rare beyond New Beyond. I do not want to backtrack too many systems to search for mining pods without jump...

Re: I want to talk about the direction of gameplay. I don't feel it is good.

The stronghold, the biggest one with undergroundHull, will shrug off many missiles and take less damage. All of the missiles for NAMI missile launcher? They do little damage to the stronghold, even the XM900s. MAG launcher, ZG24 seem to chew them up a bit, but only because powerful fragmentation mis...

Re: I want to talk about the direction of gameplay. I don't feel it is good.

About WMD... Recently discovered that Marauder strongholds take this to the next level by requiring mining damage for significant damage. WMD alone does not work against them. Given how late they appear, the only standard weapon with enough oomph to hurt them is the plasma torch. However, they are e...

Re: Corporate Command Stock Market

After playing another game, I had few Sung stations in Ungoverned Territories, few enough that I think I had to kill one base outside of UT to make the Huari friendly. Thus, even the Ungoverned Territories jackpot is not guaranteed. (I only managed to get stocks down to maybe 15 or 16, instead of 3 ...
