Bug Reports & Support (modded) / Autofit Bypasses Requisites
« on: October 14, 2017, 04:21:19 PM »
By using autofit a hullmod that has an specific requisite can be installed into a different ship skin that doesn't meet the prerequisite

Highlighting the relevant code of the Fleet Server (TSC_CommCenter) hullmod from my own mod

Code
    @Override
    public boolean isApplicableToShip(ShipAPI ship) {
        /*The checked hullmod is only present in TSC combat ships as built-in, so it is used to discriminate which ship can install the Fleet Server hulllmod,
        sadly can't make this hullmod available to every ship since I would need to modify every ship to add the effect weapon*/
        return ship != null && (ship.getVariant().getHullMods().contains("TSC_ParticleConduits"));
    }
   
This hullmod can be then installed in, for example, a TT skin Amentum which lacks the Integrated Particle Conduits of the TSC version, by just autofitting it to the Attack variant.

I've already added code to my hullmods that have this kind of requirements to auto remove themselves, if they are not met, however it seems relevant enough to post the issue, since it also leads to autofit leaving unspent OP.

Suggestions / Setting Hull Style for skins
« on: August 24, 2017, 09:07:29 PM »
Looking at vanilla skins, there is already a way to change an engine slot style to a different one. Which is displayed by the TT Brawler.
However there doesn't seem to be a way to set the Hull style, and if there is... well, it is missing from the TT Brawler (in that case, bug report I guess).

I mainly want this for consistency, as the TT Brawler is a high tech conversion of the standard Brawler, yet it uses the same mid tech style of weapon mount covers, I don't mind too much about shields, but that could also be taken into consideration.
This would be also helpful for mods, specially for (P) type skins of high tech vessels.

Suggestions / Hiding in Codex and dmods
« on: June 07, 2017, 08:58:40 PM »
So I've noticed that hullmods tagged as dmods make a hull invisible in the codex, which is great. There's no real reason to have the codex cluttered with (D) and (P) hulls.

But there are some hidden hulls that in my opinion deserve to be shown on the codex, namely the Colossus Mk.II and Mk.III (those aren't even skin files) and the Mudskipper Mk.II. There's also several normal hulls that do not deserve to be in the codex... I'm looking at you Buffalo and your many skins.

I tried making a dmod to hide this kind of hulls, and it works, but it is not without downsides, since it enables the restore option, even if the hullmod is "HiddenEverywhere", and any ship with it, is also shown on the fleet UI marked with a "dmod bar".

As far as I'm aware there's no way to add a hint to a skin file, nor is is possible to have a base ship file, with a Built-in dmod show on the codex.
So it might be a good idea to alter the dmod behaviour, make it only enable the restore option (and to be removed by this option), and make a new "hiddenEverywhere" hullmod (or just a hullmod tag) that hides a ship from the codex, just like the "HIDE_IN_CODEX" hint does.

I guess this could be also done, by having a way to modify hints in a skin file, and a DO_NOT_HIDE_IN_CODEX hint.

Bug Reports & Support / [0.8a] Gamma Core in tutorial
« on: April 20, 2017, 10:30:05 PM »
I had to replay the tutorial, becaus I broke it by salvaging the derelict ships before being told to do so.
So in my rush to get to that point I forgot to turn on the transponder (after getting the core), to my surprise, the AI core was still in my inventory after the conversation.

Since this seems to be free money, I guess this could be considered an exploit.

I've been following this channel for a couple of months now, and honestly I think it is fantastic, considering it is already thursday, and that means a new video is getting uploaded later today, I supposed it would be a good idea to promote it.

And to make one of its core themes more related to Starsector, something I made just for the fun of it...

The CSV Ojos del Salado III Sabre-class destroyer approaches with its fleet the Dyson swarm orbiting Arcon's parent star.

Now to figure how to code an interstellar laser highway...

Bug Reports & Support (modded) / Entity Shading Limitation/Bug?
« on: January 26, 2017, 09:46:45 PM »
Ok, I'm not sure if this constitutes a "bug", and I'm fairly sure it is more like a limitation...

I was working on a sprite, for an artificial ring like station. Everything seemed to work fine, as the picture below shows.



Until I let the game fast forward and realized that the shadow casted over the sprite, had limits. I figured it might be because the sprite itself was quite large, but even after reducing it to a quarter of its size, I saw no differences. I guess this is entirely based on the sprite size defined in the custom_entities.json, since sprites set to smaller sizes do not seem to suffer from this,  which would mean there's an actual size limit for entities (if you want shading).



I know I could disable the effect for this entity (so it would look like the image below), or make the ring thinner and closer to the planet (reducing the sprite size define in the json file), but I would prefer not to, specially because I wanted to make an even larger megastructure, just for fun.



Anyway, I mostly want to sate my curiosity in relation to the game's rendering engine in this respect. Can this be fixed?, if not, what is the limit?. I hope I'm just missing a tag somewhere that could solve this for me, or there might be a file I can change, and so distribute it with my mod (I assume the effect is made by a square gradient of limited size, that's applied over an entity).

Bug Reports & Support / "renderBelowAllWeapons" rendering issue
« on: September 11, 2015, 05:02:36 PM »
"renderBelowAllWeapons" rendering issue with loaded missiles and decorative weapons on refit screen.

Seems like the actual subject is too big for the field.
Discovered this as soon as I restarted working on my mod and quickly forgot about it. I guess it is a bit specific, and also a very minor issue, since it works fine everywhere else... but since I'm already posting some graphical issues, and I did a quick pass at the forums and didn't see anything like it.

Short description of the image below, the huge missile in the refit window is being rendered over 2 fake decorative weapons that simulate hull pieces, despite having "renderBelowAllWeapons" set to true, however it is still rendered below the tactical laser. It renders correctly everywhere else.



If it matters, the 2 cover pieces do not have "renderBelowAllWeapons" set to true, they have "showDamageWhenDecorative" set to true and their "specClass" is set to "beam".

Bug Reports & Support / Animated beam weapon rendering issue
« on: September 11, 2015, 03:25:57 PM »

As the picture shows the weapon doesn't change its color to the one set in the shipsystem file.

The modded ship is nothing special and it's actually using vanilla phase displacer ship system.
The weapon has "specClass":"beam" a customized script (which I believed was the culprit) and it is animated with "numFrames":24, "frameRate":30

After making some tests and discarding it was any attached script or my own mod, found that changing the specClass fixes the issue, removing the animation also fixes the issue, so the ship glows normally during displacing.

So I proceeded to see if I could replicate this in vanilla. The only modified asset is chaingun.wpn. Added the modified code below.

Bug Reports & Support / cloudOffset
« on: September 26, 2013, 03:31:48 PM »
I fear cloudOffset does nothing, unless I'm misinterpreting what it's meant to do. As far as I can tell clouds are drawn on a second concentric sphere, when compared to the planet itself. cloudOffset would be used to make the cloud sphere radius sightly bigger by a set number of units, so the cloud sphere radius would be the planet's radius plus the cloudOffset value...

I tried to make an orbital ring for one of my planets (depicted below), to get a better effect setting the cloudOffset to a larger number would make it look better, however no mather how big I set the value I don't notice any changes.


cloudOffset set to 1000


cloudOffset set to 10000

Note that I made new games for each test.

Modding / Weapons affecting their owner stats
« on: January 28, 2013, 11:11:11 AM »
Well after the confirmation that having simple universal turret/hardpoint covers are not possible and that having 3 copies of each "weapon" for each slot type, that look the same do the same is not an appealing idea... I thought maybe I could make them act as hullmods that can be disabled (hopefully); specifically flux capacitors, vents, and a mix of both (capacitor for missile slots, vents for ballistic, and both for energy). Yet it seems I severely overestimated my ability to self-learn java coding, or maybe it's just undoable and I've been wasting my time.

So... any idea if this is doable, and maybe how it could be done?


I didn't post this in the "Misc modding questions that are too minor to warrant their own thread", since I thought this might generate enough discussion.

 Description:

The following mod attempts to integrate a complete new faction into the base game that does not deviate wildly from it. This faction is formally known as the Tyrador Safeguard Coalition, or colloquially, as the Coalition.

The mod itself tries to introduce a "Forge World" fantasy into the game, where the Coalition faction is centered around a single heavily populated industrialized planet, in a heavily defended system.
And meanwhile the faction was not an interstellar megacorporation like the Tri-Tachyon, it surely was the home of several innovations, some of these creations being retconned to before the fall of the domain, as such many of the ships added by the mod have some vanilla faction skins, specially Tri-Tachyon skins, since the "natives" would have worked closely with them.

Style wise, the faction ships, overall, are flavored between midline and hightech, leaning more closely to the later.
In regards to gameplay, the faction is pretty much focused in larger ships, where destroyers and smaller vessels are mostly relegated to support functions. Many of the ships have severe downfalls, requiring the player to deploy well balanced fleets into battle. The exception to this is capital vessels, which are quite capable on their own.

The mod also adds a new kind of weapon, known as drone bays and drone racks, this weaponry enables a ship to provide a constant stream (1 wing per minute) of highly disposable drones, or just a single wing them, respectively. Considering the upcoming changes to fighters in the next update I avoided adding more variety of drone bays/racks, and depending on how they behave, I might add a larger variety of them, or scrap the concept.

Origins of the Coalition:
Spoiler
The Coalition owes its creation to the Collapse. As the news of the gates closing reached the population of Arcon, despair began to settle in.

You see, Arcon was completely unable to feed the population it currently had. The planet housed about one hundred and twenty million souls at the time, it is much lower now, though.

Arcon was entirely dependent on food imports coming from  the gates, and with their closing, not just the planet, but the whole system would surely perish.

Worldwide protests erupted demanding a solution, but none was given, actually none could be given. The local Domain forces just told us to wait, and that the gates would reopen in time.

Months passed, and there were no news from the gates, and as stockpiles dwindled famine began to settle in.

It was not something I'm proud of, but if I had to do it I would do it again. In order to alleviate the situation a bit, we began... I took command of some PDF, and under a red flag, began raiding the neighboring systems.

It was not much but it was something, and in time it was something that was done to us too. Raids on our systems were increasing. It was clearly an unsustainable situation. But suddenly there was a spark of hope.

The big boys at Praxis had an interesting proposal. We would eat Reydian wildlife, it was a completely fantastic and utterly dumb idea. To consume alien life, even if it was exceptionally similar to our own, haha!, you should have seen the news of the time.

Surely we could have retroengineered the lifeforms to be more compatible, but that would have taken years, and we did not have the time. No, they proposed something much simpler, to treat our new food source with engineered bacteria which would consume it an in exchange produce an edible grey goop.

It was sound, it was doable, it was our salvation, yet it was illegal. Reydes was a garden world, and its unique but strangely similar biochemistry to our own, the notion of ancient panspermia made it even more appealing to the Domain's scientific interests.

In the end it was what made us take action. The grand admiral wouldn't let us, so we had to make it happen. We rebelled, PDF and even some of my fellow Domain officers, struck down the local Domain HQ on the ring.

Now nobody stood between us and our salvation, one last battle was ahead of us. We rushed to Reydes followed by countless ships converted for fishing and science vessels.

We expected a glorious last stand, but we found nothing. In my excitement, I never took in consideration that the other worlds in the system were as much dependant as we were on the gates. Reydes population was minimal, just extremely isolated scientific outposts, they had no chance against the raids as we had suffered. We took the survivors in, salvaged everything we could, and began the next phase of the plan...

   -Compatibility changes needed for 0.9 RC10. Yup, this way I don't have to type lines and lines for the required changes.
   -Missions "Knowing Yourself" and "Knowing your Enemy", removed... temporally.
   -Moved the CSV Andes from the asteroid belt in Arydas to Akvan.
   -Moved the CSV Himalayas from the asteroid belt in Magec to Chaxiraxi, added conditions to Chaxiraxi.
   -Added market conditions to all the planets in the Penelope's Star system.
   -Added custom "space stations" industries for the CSV Andes and CSV Himalayas, from now on the unique forgeships are part of the campaign layer.
   -Added the CSV Andes "industry" to Akvan with an added Beta core.
   -Added the CSV Himalayas "industry" to Chaxiraxi with an added Beta core; Chaxiraxi is now under Coalition control.

   -Added the Orbital Manufactorum industry to Arcon with an added Corrupted Nanoforge.
   -Arconian Orbital Ring custom entity is no longer interactable.
   -Added the Arconian Naval Reconstruction, a custom retrofitting submarket, to Arcon. It offers ships reconstruction (IE converts pirate/TT/... ship variants to their equivalent TSC variants), and upgrade services (it can install the IPC hullmod to some non-TSC ships), it does so free of charge, as long as you paid the "entry fee" and the ship is in pristine condition (has no dmods).
   -Added the Artesian Market, a custom military submarket that sells both independent and faction equipment and ships without requiring a commission, to Atrio. Also removed the existing military submarket and the old extra independent market.
   -Added custom icons to the following shipsystems, Ram Drive, Drone Swarm, Shield Burst, Mega Shield Burst, Phase Minelayer, Booster Jets, Kamikaze and Deploy Drones.
   -Added custom icon to Low Resolution Sensors hullmod.
   -Added the Mantlet Platform built-in hullmod, it allows the parent ship to mount hullmods that upgrade Mantlet-class defensive platforms.

   -Added the Sliver Gun weapon, a small sized somewhat inaccurate energy weapon that fires 3 projectiles; does area damage in a very small radius.
   -Added the Glass Cannon weapon, a medium sized energy weapon that fires a single projectile; does area damage in a small radius.
   -Added the Hive Launcher weapon, a large sized missile weapon that fires 5 2-stage "smart missiles/dumb suicide drones"; the weapon benefits from the effects of the Drone Swarm shipsystem.
   -Added the Mantlet Dronepod Launcher weapon, a large sized built-in drone spawning weapon, spawns a dronepod that eventually deploys into a Mantlet-class modular defense platform.
   -Added the Scanner Array weapon, a small sized built-in beam weapon used by the Kabura-ya-class drones and Arambai-class corvette, applies a debuff to the target ship defensive stats as long as the beam hits its armor or hull.
   -Added the Plasma Burst Lance, a large sized built-in upgraded version of the Plasma Lance, can store and fire up to 3 shots, otherwise it keeps the same fire rate as the normal Plasma Lance.

   -Added (properly; and finally... it has been WIP for a very long time) the Arambai-class Corvette, a large phase-capable single fighter wing designed for battlefield distortion.
   -Added retrofiting market to Arcon.
   -Added the "REDACTED" constellation, a randomly located and randomly named constellation offering a "REDACTED" challenge experience and "epic loot".
   -Added unique variations of the Halberd, Atlatl, Kestros, Amentum.
   -Updated the sprites for... pretty much every TSC combat ship, ranging from small color alterations (reducing pure gray areas) for most of the sprites, to almost complete re-spriting for some like the Atlatl and Labrys.
   -Updated the sprites for all the pirate variants.
   -Updated the sprites for most of the portraits.
   -(Alex) Fixed an issue with ship spawning, reinforcement spawn area is no longer pushed back by every spawned ship, only by proper reinforcements. This affected all mods, however only mine is the one that goes bonkers with this mechanic.
   -Fixed a potential gamecrash source found in the drone spawning script, the crash was related to an engine oddity with simultaneous projectile removal and station spawning.

v.1.5.0
Spoiler
   -Implemented "timed expiration" system for weapon spawned drones:
      -Affects Kulbeda, Corvo, Kabura-ya drones and Dronepods.
      -Does not affect Caltrop-class phase mine drones.
      -Drones affected by the system loose their CR constantly (even if there are no enemies on the map).
      -CR dependent effects:
         -CR = 0%:   drone gets a high random chance to explode on the spot(adds a bit extra randomness so they don't all explode exactly at the same time).
         -CR ? 1%:   drone suddenly stops functioning.
         -CR ? 5%:   drone will try to self destruct by ramming into a nearby enemy vessel, doing low kinetic damage (mostly visual). (Dronepods will forcefully release their drones).
         -CR > 5%:   drone behaves normally.
   -Renamed Chakram's "Ion Pulser" to "Ion Micropulser"; the name change was reverted accidentally and went unnoticed.
   -Add the Anvil-class Forgeship, a "ship" version of TSC mobile shipyard stations, mission-exclusive content... for now, depending on next game update.
   -Added the Ayllo-class Frigate, a scout/surveying themed drone tender ship that uses built-in weapon spawned drones.
   -Added the Kabura-ya-class Scout Drone, a built-in weapon spawned drone, it lacks the "Low Resolution Sensors" hullmod found in the other weapon spawned drones.
   -Added Dronepods (for Kulbeda and Corvo drones), large weapon spawned shielded "drones", that release drones when: near an enemy, their CR gets too low, or they start getting HP damage. Just like a MIRV they can still be shot down before releasing their contents though.
   -Added the "Drone Swarm" shipsystem, the system reloads the ammunition of drone spawner weapons and sets their cooldown to 0. Currently used by Ayllo, Kestros and Atlatl classes.
   -Added the "Shield Burst" shipsystem, the system deploys a short lived 360° shield that grows in size up to 5 times the ship shield's normal radius, the shield does not collide with allies. Currently used by Adarga-class.
   -Added the "Mega Shield Burst" shipsystem, a much larger version of the "Shield Burst" shipsystem, with a slightly longer duration, less charges and slower recharge. Currently used by Anvil-class Forgeships (mission-only content).
   -Added "Kamikaze" shipsystems for Kulbeda, Corvo and Kabura-ya drones.
   -Added Dmod "Damaged Particle Conduits", a milder version of "Unreliable Subsystems" that also blocks "Hardened Subsystems" and "Integrated Particle Conduits" using hullmods, used by (P) skins and can be rolled in recovered TSC ships.
   -"Integrated Particle Conduits" hullmod blocks "Hardened Subsystems" hullmod.
   -Fixed autofit hullmod installing minor exploit.
   -Fixed bug that made weapon spawned drones use fleet deployment points.
   -Corrected OP values for carriers; was using outdated formula for launch bays.
   -Corrected laser offsets for fighters.
   -Added Kulbeda Dronepod Launcher weapon, a large sized missile weapon that deploys 6 Kulbeda drones.
   -Added Corvo Dronepod Launcher weapon, a large sized missile weapon that deploys 4 Corvo drones.
   -Added Warden PD System "modular" weapon, a large sized energy weapon similar to the Pavise-class frontal mounted built-in weapon, but a bit less powerful.
   -Added Disruptor Burst Beam weapon, a medium sized energy weapon, similar to the Disruptor Beam Cannon, it does a small amount of hard flux damage to raised shields, however unlike it, it is not a constant beam working similarly to a Burst PD Beam.
   -Added Orchid-class Torpedo Launcher weapon, a small sized missile weapon with 2 Orchid Torpedoes, each torpedo does about 55% the damage of a Lotus Torpedo.
   -Added new graphical effect to Plasma Lance and Warden PD System projectiles.
   -Added story mission: "To Tame a Land".

      -Halberd-class, Lance-class and Angon-class are now "Ships with modules", and now equipped with a secondary shield emitter activated by turning on their "Ram Drives".
      -Angon-class Transport "Ram Drive" is now a lesser version (less efficient shield) of the one equipped by the Angon-class and Halberd-class.
      -Amentum-class Carrier "Recall Device" ship system replaced with "Reserve Deployment".
      -Kestros-class Cruiser "Reserve Deployment" ship system replaced with "High Energy Focus" (this is a temporal measure, since I've not coded or sprited its new intended system).
      -Buffed the Tessen-class, longer peak CR time, lower deployment costs, now it is a good alternative to sacrificing a combat ship's battle effectiveness by adding the Fleet Server Hullmod to it.
      -All TSC fighters got the vanilla "No Weapon Flux" hullmod.
      -Combat stats of Gunship style fighters (Scimitar, Chakram and Tomahawk) were buffed a bit.
      -Fighter LPC OP cost reduced a bit overall.
      -IR Pulse Lasers employed by TSC fighters replaced with IR Pulse Lasers (High Delay) the vanilla fighter version of the weapon.
      -Added a fighter IR Pulse Laser to the Kunai-class Strike Fighter.
      -Added a fighter IR Pulse Laser and a Stinger-class Proximity Mine to the Shuriken-class Interceptor.

      -Javelin-class Heavy Bomber, Chakram-class Support Gunship and Tomahawk-class Attack Gunship had their speed stat equalized, they are currently designed to be used in tandem.
      -Chakram-class dual Ion Cannon's replaced with a single Ion Micropulser, a smaller version of the Ion pulser.
      -Javelin-class dual Reaper-class Torpedoes replaced with the new Lotus-class Torpedo (overall damage nerf).
      -Javelin-class now has an Omni shield and Maneuvering Jets as ship system.
      -Added Advanced Optics hullmod to Sai-class Defense Drones in order to make them "competitive" when compared to Wasps.
      -Increased the number of Corvo-class Combat Drones deployed by the Corvo Drone Rack weapon to 4 drones in a single wave.
      -Increased the number of Caltrop-class Phase Mine carried by the Caltrop Mine Rack weapon to 3 mines, deployed individually.

      -(D) skins are now closer in line to vanilla (D) skins.
      -All (D) skins can now be restored to their default skin, for most ships this means the TSC skin, even for those that have a TT skin.
      -Medusa (D) is now a vanilla Medusa-class skin.
      -Introduced a new missile weapon, the Lotus-class Torpedo Launcher, it comes in fighter size (single), small mount size (Lotus-class Torpedo), medium mount size (Rainstorm Lotus Launcher), large mount size (Monsoon Lotus Launcher). The weapon is a poorly guided MIRV-like missile that splits into 8 two stage rockets that deal energy damage, the warheads themselves are not very accurate.
      -Ship loadouts altered to reflect changes.

   -Bug Fixes and Improvements:
      -Major unreported bug regarding weapon spawned drones (Corvo and Kulbeda) where they were able to attack an enemy ship and suffer no counterattack was fixed. (Main reason for the delay, required me to figure a way to deal with their AI, and maybe lose the search pattern they exhibit, thankfully I was able to keep the behavior thanks to a second AI altering script).
      -Removed deployment spam messages when spawning weapon based drones.
      -Player or the AI, can't turn the shield off when using the Ram drive shipsystem (affects Angon-class, Lance-class and Halberd-class).
      -Claymore built-in missile can no longer get more than 1 ammo, mostly flavor, its reload time was too long to actually happen.
      -Fighter wings removed from the simulator.
      -Fixed the use of incorrect directory separator in "Coalition_texture_data.csv".
      -Replaced the use of "cover" with "Cover" in "hull_styles.json".
      -Added system weapon slots for the ship hulls that use a weapon shipsystem, that were currently missing it.
   -Misc. Changes:
      -Anything else I forgot to type here.

      -Disruptor Beam Cannon range reduced to 750, hard-flux to soft-flux ratio reduced to 30%. Generated hard-flux on the target is also
       applied to the source (this can cause the source ship to overload form continuous fire).

   -Tyrador system background compression artefacts fixed.
   -Renamed Halberd-class to Corseque-class.

   -Removed Dyson Swarm/Bubble graphics from the mod.
   -Removed unused scripts.
   -Fixed the Atlatl and Tessen script that buffs drones and fighters giving the graphic indicator to frigates too.
   -Removed test mission.
   -Added a 25% sized alternative versions of the Arconian Orbital Ring (front and back) sprites, they need to be renamed manually to use them
    (only use them if you are having issues with your vram, you can also mix and match them).
   -Added non-story missions: "Knowing Yourself", "Knowing your Enemy".
   -Graphics Lib:
      -Merged normal maps of non-(D) "skin variants" in order to reduce vram use.
