Re: Cloak and upgrade

I've recently attained Competent status. And the military came asking for help. I understand that in this mission, you can obtain a cloaking device. If I agree to help, and get the cloak, but then upgrade to a nicer ship, will the cloak go with me? Or will it be gone forever? In answer to your ques...

Nope, just three. Do me a favor and use a text editor to look in your savefile. What's the mission_deposed variable set to?

Its been so long since a played it I can't remember! Do an author search for Wobat (he wrote it). There is a thread on the boads that deals with this somwhere under expansion packs (i think). If you look through Wombat's posts you be able to find where he answered this. When authors release an OXP ...

Working on it. :twisted:




Allright, not at Tianve. Location has been decided, but is not for disclosure.

Mmm.. working on this.. The Nova mission can interact badly with other missions presenting a choice on-screen (like the trumble salesman f'rinstance). I'll fix this for the trumbles but other mission designers may want to check for mission_novacount undefined before presenting an on-screen choice. ...

Re: Thargoid Mission - Help with Plans Delivery

The Planet BIRERA is just toooo far for the ship to jump. After a series of fights and jumps to the system... I go to the system which is closest to the target planet, But... I find that my ship's engines are far too small to make the jump to BIRERA as its MORE THAN 7.0 light years even from the cl...

DUMB missiles would be invulnerable to ECM and fly only in a straight line(torpedoes/rockets), or have minimal tracking ability. (a slow turn or delayed intercept script) That would make for interesting broadside battles. Or they could be used for planet/station bombardment platforms. I see what yo...

I have a question for Giles in this subject: Can ships be limited to the type of missiles they can carry? (NB it would be fun to build a rocket ship, carrying only dumb missiles, but if it would have ECm missiles onboard, the balance is way off!) One problem with a rocket ship is that it can be tak...

They seem to be able to shoot me no matter the facing; Regard, could this be applied to Dark Orion ships? :twisted: Yes, you can do this (sort of). In the shipdata.pl...
