Re: [0.6.1a UPDATE!] Blackrock Drive Yards v0.42

Oh I know that feeling, I've dipped my hand into writing a few science fiction short story's and excerpts of ideas I've had - and it's amazing how something can shift under your feet when you look at it the second time.

You think you've penned utter gold, and when you proofread it the next day you wonder if the person who wrote this was hitting the medicine cabinet too hard; or you realize what you thought you wrote has no resemblance to what you actually wrote, but it's actually better that way. It's a tricky thing, but playing with words is damn satisfying once you KNOW you've forged a mastery of wordsmithing.

I also know how much motivation it provides when someone enjoys your work enough that they can't offer any critiques (YOU WRITE GOOD).

Thanks a lot Ishman ;D I feel a bit more confident about my writing now.



Shoutouts to Trylobot for making this firing effect with me. Soon, we might also have a solution for the annoying bug that lets you charge the AM Lance even when it has 0 ammo. The explosion effect is a frankenstein of particle system code I've taken from here and there, thanks to Valk for letting me use some stuff!

I have noticed that any gun with a long charge up can spam its charge sound until your ears bleed. I would love that fix if it was in vanilla too.

+1  I hope it's fixed for Vanilla also. I think Alex knows about it / is already planning it at some point.

Testing the Asura's Flux Ejectors. Is there any way I could make it first use the canisters on the left side, and then on the right side?

Yeah absolutely. One way that would be absolutely fail-proof would be to set up 6 weapon slots of type SYSTEM, and equip the canisters as weapons on all of them, giving them a very specific naming convention; something like flux_ejector_0 through flux_ejector_5 - that way you can have the AI script use them in sequence without caring how many there are (you just loop through the weapons by name until it fails to return, that's your signal to cycle back to 0).

Another way might be to define one weapon with 6 barrels that fire ALTERNATING. Not sure if there's any downsides to that method really.

Aye, I think the first method probably sounds like it gives the most control.

The chargeup sound bug has actually been fixed for 0.6.2a, its right in the patchnotes. I think it doesnt fix the fact you can charge a weapon that has 0 charges.



Asura-class Monitor, sans weapons. In the end I decided it was too fat-looking and needed a slightly differentiated color scheme from other BR ships since it's a phase ship. Also did away with the built-in weapon for now.

Blackrock phase cloaks are pretty inefficient when it comes to flux usage, however, the ship's main engines can work in phase space, making the ship noticeably faster while submerged.

Cycerin, doing awesome job as usual. And you were right about changing the phase ship, your first version looked a bit too fat for BRDY vessel.

I'd say the same as for the shield issues.
