Re: Planning for the 7th Transcendence succession game

 I figured that was probably the issue, but my wife (who also uses 7) couldn’t reproduce the problem. Regardless, it should be a fairly easy fix on my end, just a matter of telling Pluma to save the file with Window line endings instead of Linux/Unix. EDIT: Re-upped (along with the inevitable tweaks...

Re: Planning for the 7th Transcendence succession game

AE ships is illegible in Notepad…  That’s probably a problem with writing a mod in a Linux text editor. I may see what I can do about that now that the semester is over and I can do more than trying to find time to breathe in between getting ready for finals. EDIT: I just sent it to my wife and had...

Re: First Look: GunStar playership mod.

It's very big. Your in-game sprite should probably be substantially smaller: around the size of a Manticore.  At the very most, at least if you’re trying for an authentic scale for the ship. It’s been a while since I’ve seen The Last Starfighter, but I’m pretty sure that 80x80 frames would be overd...

Re: Transcendence Picture thread

 In the process of working on The Backroads, I’m doing a lot of testing to make sure that weapons and thrust effects are being placed correctly. Even throwing trigonometry at things frequently requires a bit of tweaking here or there. The upshot of this is that sometimes I wind up with something rea...

Re: 1.3 Beta 1

I feel like it's harder to turn exactly one facing. … If you don't hold the key long enough, you won't turn at all and it only takes a tiny bit longer to turn multiple facings.  I’ve run into this quite a bit, myself. I’ve seen a few calls to map “H” and “;” to turn one facing in the past, and whil...

 I could do that. Three of the gunships for right now.

The Backroads — an alternate route

CURRENT STATUS: Closed Beta (0.5.6) TBR’S MINISTRY PAGE  …So. I was, a ways back, going to do a full rewrite of the ships in the game with the intent of giving all of them forty facings. I didn’t have access to the original graphics at the time and didn’t know about PSD, meaning I now have approxim...

Re: Starter Thread for Modding

 I’m betting anything it’s a UNID range issue. From the UNID database thread: 0xD27K - Xstor Thanks!!!  If that’s what you’ve been using, it’s definitely not going to work. That “K” will be what’s throwing things off. It has to be something in hexadecimal — 0-9 or A-F. I’d meant to mention that to s...

Re: Preventing weapon installation on a playership

 Yeah, I’d already wrestled with that one — http://forums.kronosaur.com/viewtopic.php?p=57136#p57136 — before <CanInstallItem> was fixed to work more on just armor. As near as I can tell, setting a max value to 0 acts as a delimiter. If you need to keep something from being installed, it looks like ...

Re: Preventing weapon installation on a playership

 Yep, you have to handle that through events. <Events> <CanInstallItem> (block nil (if (eq (itmGetCategory gItem) 4) (setq return "Weapons cannot be installed on this ship.") (setq return true) ) ) return </CanInstallItem> </Events>  …Or something to that effect.

Re: Main drive compartment coordinates?

 …Ah-ha, so I was on the right track. I had a feeling this was going to be some pixels-from-center shenanigans instead of the pixels-from-top-left-corner like the HUD stuff uses. Thanks for clarifying.

Main drive compartment coordinates?

 Basically, how do I properly assign them? I’m looking at the code for Nomad Salvager to get some frame of reference, here. Going by the fact that the x-coordinate is negative and stays the same while the y-coordinate changes, it looks the coordinates are being assigned with the ship facing to the r...

Re: Compartments making bosses a bit too tough?

 I’m not sure about resistances, but I’m pretty sure you need WMD weapons to do more than one point of damage at a time. I do agree that this is something that might need looked into, though.  On a similar-ish note, do various repair devices have any effect on compartment damage, or do they only eff...
