You won't be able to refit fighters and bombers at all. They're designed/balanced around having a particular set of weapons and would be very broken if you could change it. Which ones you pick for your fleet -out of quite a few that are available- is the choice here, not how they're outfitted.

So, is there anything you can say about audio updates? The music and the new UI sounds were an excellent addition (a patch or two ago, I don't think there was any this time around), and I was wondering when we are going to receive another upgrade.

Well, 0.53a had some new stuff :) New sounds for systems, sound filter effects for the phase cloak and the fortress shield.

There are other things in the works, but nothing I can talk about just yet.

I have a question about the drone system, is there anyway to make recalling drones unavailable? Say one drone, you launch it it'll never be able to return sorta deal.

Also, as I'm trying to jury rig a really... 'unique system' is there also a way to make shields unable to absorb shots while things are inside ( once you enter, you can shoot up the ship inside ) ? I can also sorta imagine a loophole to make it seem like that's happening is by making the collision much smaller than the shields to make it occasionally not take in shots,

Ahh, no on both counts - sorry!

You can make drones skip the "free roam" mode, but that's it.

Well, in a few weeks I'll remind you that I'm entitled to a blog post. You HAVE to talk about something.

Blargh, one last question, for the maneuvering jets, how does it actually specify which engines are turned on when the system is activatged? I'm lost on that one little detail xP

Well where do you specify the extra jets that turn on? I assume that's what he's asking. Those jets look awesome, btw, Alex.

As it is from what I see on the falcon, there are 6 extra engines that aren't normally used in non jet mode,
but in the ship file, the engines there are just specified as normal engines, I'm confused over the part where it specifies it as a jet-only-engine.

Any chance of an alternative download link? lol

Just pucker up and use IE, if that fails you're screwed :)

Oh, I was wondering when someone would ask that. You set the otherwise-unused "contrailSize" field to 128 to flag the engines as hidden (let's be kind to me and call it a "creative use of an existing, unused field for binary flags" - rather than an "awful hack"). They'll be activated by any system that modifies the engine glow.

Try this. Again, where are you located? That would help to know if this comes up again. (If you don't want to share that information, feel free to say so.)
