Re: Xeptatl's Sword

The warhead is pretty hard to find! Especially when it flies away from the Boa at a speed of about .4 (could catch it with Witchspace injectors but not without them) but then couldn't see it the first 10 times.

And I love the weapon assembly bit :)

Re: Xeptatl's Sword

Of course I did go and do it 'properly' afterwards and it was good fun :) Even if I was miffed that I was 5000Cr down on the two GalPods I'd had. Only got 1.75 million Credits left now! I guess it's the 'problem' with an Open Source game like this - there's no one to say 'No!' whenever two OXPs clash.

Re: Xeptatl's Sword

Think I might have found another wee bug - again it's a minor 'clash' with another OXP and is nothing major :)

At one stage you have to try and get a GalPod from somewhere. But on the way there I passed a Communist Worker Factory that sold Galactic Hyperdrives.

Re: Player asp cannot mount Fuel scoop

Ooops sorry - I meant to post it in the other topic about Xeptatl's Sword but I had this one open as well (I was trying to decide if the problem was with the Asp (this thread) or the OXP (the other thread)). I got even more confused as Smivs removed his post after I replied in the other thread and t...

Re: Player asp cannot mount Fuel scoop

Chopped Cobra seems to be just the thing. A tiny smidge slower than the Asp (0.38 vs 0.4) but goes from 1 to 3 missiles slots and 0 to 33 (when extended) tonnes of cargo. Plus it's cheaper :) I've deliberately avoided getting many OXP ships as they can be over-powered but this one seems to be basica...

Re: Xeptatl's Sword

I was getting tempted to tweak my ASP to give it scoops but since you say I need two missile pods it's probably time to sell all the equipment on it, find a nice high tech planet and replace everything on a new ship.

Thanks :)

Re: Xeptatl's Sword

Ah right OK. What's fast, fighty and can have fuel scoops then? Time to go shopping... But it took me ages to find an Asp! Can I ask that the next release includes a few comments from your friendly agent so when they ask about equipment they mention fuel scoops as well as GalPods? PS Why does the AS...

Re: Xeptatl's Sword

Hi, Been a while since I've been on here but the Elite Kickstarter got me back in my ship... I'm doing Xeptatl's sword in an Asp which I think can't have fuel scoops. So when I ended up in witchspace I got out of it by energy bombing and then using my auxilliary fuel tank and jumping to veenar. I th...

I have to agree with McLane - I don't want all sorts of uber ships in my game - just the original ones and the few in some early OXPs that are balanced and in keeping with the game (Murghs X Ships I think? It has the boa and python cruiser). some missions OXPs add ships just for the missions. Fine. ...

to be fair, the derailments here are pretty minor.

I think the screenshots are a good idea. When you first start you're busy trying to get the last tenth a credit out of each run. Knowing if you're going to make a better profit out of your last 115 credits with 2 more tonnes of machinery or 1 tonne of the more expensive computers is useful to know.

I always thought thargoid carriers paid out too much anyway. You can just sit there shooting them and they do nothing to stop you. OK maybe one or two thargoid craft come out but that's just more money for afterwards.

Perhaps they need a dozen plasma turrets?

hello. I'm aiming to get the procedural generator released as an application (with source code) where you set a few parameters, press a button and it saves out the texture. Then we can all play with it to find some good sets of parameters and some of the objective C people can look at how it could b...

I must say that like it without the images as well. If you ever saw First Encounter's attempts at videos of the locals when docked then you'll understand why! Also the amount of work to get them up to the standard of the rest of the game would be enormous. But if you can get all 6913 of them done to...
