Ah, the TimCORP.  How's the balancing for the two mods so far?

Upgradecap messed up TimCORP's fleets completely in unique manner :D Need to redo fleets he designed to match IDFs/Hierarchy's fleets :)

What are the tools you use to debug your scripts warstalker? Currently I need to run, get a crash, check the log, rince & repeat.

I would want to get something more along the line of visual studio compiler, i.e first verify syntax, and then compile the code before launching the game.

Yep, it's what I use. I launch game, getting a crash, then checking the log.

Hmm... The game itself is compiler for scripts, but for syntax verification you can use Notepad++, it helps with it, just don't forget to set language to Java.

you always can use : http://jsonlint.com/

its will check the syntax of any JSON coding, and make you see where is the rror if there is any

@ starwalker I'm using it already.

How you manage to get the signatures of some functions, only by looking at the script done by Alex and others or you have some kind of doc on the API? I would be very interested to get more details.

Also, you spoke some days ago of the possibility of adding a spawn point outside of Corvus.java, how would you do that without spawning again and again a spawn point each time the code trigger?

By the way, everything is handled by spawn point right now? How to trigger an event that would not be a spawn point and still fire every x days or under another condition? Say I would want to have in corvus.java an event that fire every day, but not tied to a faction, how can I do that?

thanks rada, will check.

It's easy. In .\Starfarer\starfarer-core\ you will find file starfarer.api.zip, just unpack it and read through its files. All Java functions are in there other things that used by people, but not written in there is Java Magic ;)

Also, you spoke some days ago of the possibility of adding a spawn point outside of Corvus.java, how would you do that without spawning again and again a spawn point each time the code trigger?
You just add some global variable like bool spawnpointenabeled = false; and add part to function that checks status of variable.

By the way, everything is handled by spawn point right now? How to trigger an event that would not be a spawn point and still fire every x days or under another condition? Say I would want to have in corvus.java an event that fire every day, but not tied to a faction, how can I do that?
That I don't know, I think in this case we need ask Alex how to use in-game timer without being tied to faction.

I have found a small problem:

The Autofire AI does not use the Phase Inversion Emitters properly.
Instead of letting it charge up, they will only fire tiny bursts for half a second or so (they never fire long enough for the beam to actually become visible).

Also, for some reason the AI claims that the weapon has '0' ammunition instead of '--' as beams usually have, which is somewhat weird.



Edit:
Actually, now after some testing in simulation mode, it turns out the Autofire AI does not use the Phase Inversion Emitters at all.
All other weapons turned off and only the group with the beams turned on, they will not even point in the direction of the enemy, let alone fire.

Replace current weapon_data.csv with this one downloaded from Mediafire. It wasn't issue on 0.52a, but when 0.52.1a came out I found about this problem too.

Updated look for TimCORP ships:

Next ones are TimCORP-style weapons :) Because every race must have own weapons to look unique :)

ha!  I love it!  I'm not sure if they look better or now, but they sure are brighter.

If the CEO is going to die, who's the next CEO?  CEO Upgrade hasn't decided yet. ;D

I had wondered why the large Leviathan had a different color scheme than the rest of the TimCORP ships.
