Re: Bosses by difficulty

Resistant or not, Dragon Slaver will eventually die to more than a dozen slam cannons plus occasional howitzer fire from all of the Hurin ships and buildings swarming the temple area. (Player does not need to wait very long.) If player does not need to be in the open to kill Earth Slavers attacking ...

Re: Bosses by difficulty

If I do not need to fight other slavers to stop them from destroying the temple, what I like to do is hide inside a planet or other object near Hurin destroyers and wait until the Hurin ships destroy the Dragon Slaver. Dragon Slaver's target is always the playership and it will not seek anything els...

Re: "Black Market" is a bad name

Black Market is a bad name because there are bad guys there. I would expect a bad name at a place run by villains. Much like outlaw base or mine for outlaws we kill and loot. Black Market name makes perfect sense to me, and makes things clear to the player, which is important. If people want fancy n...

Re: PM's mods

Few notes since last post: * Racer LRM launcher has been saved. Some like its style, so it stays. Instead, I added a new level 2 MRM launcher for the purpose of arming any starter ships I may add much later. * It is taking much more work than I thought at untangling Drake Technologies and Drakian Le...

Re: The value of life?-- Rama---Volkov and Jeana

Advanced means they run away when shields are down unless they have ignoreShieldsDown or something.

Wingmen automatically docking to restock on ammo just like repairing armor would be nice.

Re: Avatars2

I prefer identification to be handled like Nethack's intrinsics (data on player would work), and player can check the Game Statistics screen for his intrinsics. Currently, I tend to dump all, then search for the id before I leave. I also feel uncomfortable with id next to items that I feed to the fa...

Do missile guidelines still apply after the weapon rebalance?

Question as title. Link for reference: https://ministry.kronosaur.com/record.hexm?id=19002 After the weapon rebalance around 1.7, some time after the creation of the ticket, mass and stuff shifted around. I noticed Strelkas use ultra-light, but their propulsion is 600. NAMI missiles uses medium guid...

Re: PM's mods

After playing an unmodded 1.9a1 game, I noticed some things I need to change in Drake Technologies before I add it to the next full game I play to see how it wrecks the game. I plan to update Drake Technologies yet again, and it will break saves when it happens. Some changes I am considering: * Remo...

Re: 1.9 Alpha 1

Played a full game (without Corporate Command) almost a week ago. It has been at least a year since I stopped to play a full game. I picked Wolfen as usual. Highlights. Penitents attacking Fiona in Eridani were hard to kill. They just soak Smartcannon rounds and Stilettos without slowing down. Event...

Re: 60 FPS demo

With my computer that is seven or more years old, animation from the demo is a bit too fast, but it animates as smoothly as Endless Sky and other games with 60 fps. I too notice a difference. In short, I WANT THIS! With the talk of 360 frame ships, we will need 60 fps because faster-turning ships li...

Re: Current feedback alpha 1.9

The few side-mounted weapons in Corporate Command are all high-level Omnithor loot. You may find few for sale in the Outer Realm, but you probably need to beat up Omnithor for them.

Re: PM's mods

Re-uploaded Drake Technologies to Xelerus one more time. This is just a hotfix to fix some item prices.

Re: PM's mods

Re-uploaded Drake Technologies to Xelerus, again. This time, some minor bug fixes that were missed earlier and minor rebalancing of some weapons. Those who updated since the corporate break-up do not need to restart. May be a good idea since few Tinker recipes were changed and need a new game to upd...

Re: Current feedback alpha 1.9

There are no side-mounted weapons in the core game. You need Corporate Command, or third-party mod, to add some. NM900, while not side-mounted, is external, and can be found in the core game.

Re: PM's mods

Re-uploaded Drake Technologies to Xelerus. Aside from minor bug fixes and tweaks, the main feature is the corporate breakup of Drake Technologies. As per last post, Drake has been split into Drake and Brik. Brik gets almost all of Drake's matter weapons and some armor and shields. Imagik, which was ...
