Yeah, I was wondering if that was right because for ~14 credits you can get a longbow/stiletto but pay ~6 more credits and you can one hit stations? o.O

I just got around to trying this and although the rear propulsion and exhaust is neat, I don't really care for the turning jets being all that visible.
Other than that though it's going great.

George - is there a transdata download?
I can't use 2.9.0 with this version because trying to do things like list functions or make the image with all the ships gives the 'Newer version of Transcendence.exe required.'

The manticore has an extreme weakness against the chimera ships, in particular the viking and drake combo you find at randomly generated strongholds.

This is partly down to two factors:

1. Viking chimera are faster than a manticore, even if the 'core has a drive upgrade
2. Infinite spawning. It's possible to come up against over 100 enemies around an assimilated stronghold, and the only way to fight that many chimera is to hide behind something and shoot out.....which can't kill the drakes.

It may be worth limiting the number of viking chimerae that can be created by each drake to 10-15 per ship.

Curators DO dock to other factions sometimes. Gotta sell those crappy fake antique clocks. This causes issues when it's a BM and you have autons (actually, a "hold your fire!" order for wingmen and autons would be really nice in general, as long as it was over-ridden by a "screw this I'm not getting killed for nothing!" thing if the thingie got hurt too much.


Oh, and I've spotted a transparency bug. Sometimes when targeting a station only some of the image will be displayed in the 'target' section of the UI. No screenshots, sorry. It was an outlaw asteroid mine in the inner system that did it for me.

Other stuff: If you fly around in circles with the map open then stop flying, you'll get a puff of engine effects when you close the map. Not a big deal though.

Helo i think this is minor. :arrow:
Since you changed the "NAMI auton bay" (Constellation-class frighter) from-intem that can be uninstalled to one that cannot be uninstalled, I have this issue:
As far as i played i could not instal more than 100 ton cargo to 200 ton. As it says in the description of the game: :wink:

For compressed <Armor>, maybe it should get an additional field like "style" where default spawns segments counter-clockwise, and another spawns segments like the old way (forward, starboard 1, port 1, starboard 2, port 2, ... , aft). Also, "offset" for ships like Manticore.

im finding the same thing with most destroyed stations.
it looks like part of the background of space merges with the darker parts of the image of the destroyed station.
i think i remember seeing this on some of the wrecks as well.

Ah, yes, I noticed this in IRC while doing TSB tests and I believe I posted a thread on it.

A few comments:
- The AI has been screwed up somehow. I first noticed it in the intro screen with ships just sort of wobbling around and not firing (or firing in the wrong direction) but wasn't completely sure until I actually played and had an Oromo keep aiming at where my constant speed freighter was going to be a second or so later. Not idea if these two are even the same bug
- The grid covering only part of the map is very odd, especially as plenty of planets are off it
- Manoeuvring thrusters don't look good
- Mentioned by others but the ship armour segments not reporting the right damage makes play difficult

Probably not going to do a full run through til the AI and armour displays work.

ETA: Oh, for positives the new graphics are very nice and the slightly tougher beginning is good too.

  • The new 3D-ish map is very off-putting. The old map was perfect - no need to change anything.
  • Ships wobble a bit, not knowing where to fire, or dock. Heck even Rama is spinning in a circle.
  • The side thrusters are a neat detail; the main engines are awesome, as well as the missidle exhausts.
  • Some freighters keep circling the station even when there is a single docking port available.
  • I'm fairly sure Heliotrope Outposts have no place in the system before Charon.
  • Comm range doesn't exist anymore. I was able to order my precious mule autons from the second start in a binary system, 2000+ LS away!
  • I saved the Ferians from certain death (Xenophobes) and this is how they repay me: http://imgur.com/QtjYoyS
  • Terra is stuck with the thrusters at full blast, not moving at all; I can't access the bridge.

I got a warning from McAfee stating that the program has an annoying something or other malware which had the yellow color code and downloaded anyway. It may not be seeing or knows the program. Their may be something in the program that it doesn't recognize, this also happens with another program I use but McAfee sees it as a possible virus or red code.

Could you send or post the screenshot of the warning? I'd like to see it. Thanks!
