Re: Escape Pod as Standard OXZ

The update described above makes escape pods a steal for the beginner but dearly expensive for those flying a well equipped ship.

I quite like that balance but it might be a bit too Draconian.
Feedback especially welcome on this one as I'm rarely flying a well equipped ship these days.

Re: Scripters cove

Maybe not what you are looking for but player.ship.takeInternalDamage(); is (randomly) damaging equipment as well. Thanks but I think I might have solved it... (totally would have tried that 5 minutes ago :lol: ) Techically you have no ship with ECM etc between ejecting escape pod and arrival to st...

Re: Scripters cove

OK so I'm almost certainly doing something stupid but here's the plan... Upon ejecting, the player finds the replacement ship has several damaged pieces of equipment (assuming they were present on the original ship). So, I need to: activate the script once the player ejects test for presence of unda...

Re: BPlanets

Surface looks great but are they clouds? My usual comment re clouds: more please! :D Assumptions: Blue = water = evaporation Green = flora = transpiration ...and I'm no expert here but... Crude assessment in presence of both = whacking great cloud layers sweeping AND swirling ominously through the f...

Finger's crossed I'll be salvaging from my old PC soon, in whish case I plan to rescue this one . If I ration its ambition ever so slightly then I th...

Re: Paddling Pool OXZ

Thanks to maik's hard work with the wiki, this is now available from the in-game manager.

Having done a little more testing in the last few day I can confirm that pirates still show up, just not very often.
