By the way, not that I'm complaining, but isn't vibrating beam a little bit too strong? At 1.5 damage per flux it's the most efficient energy damage weapon in the entire game (not counting missiles) by a large margin, and it reaches a comfortable 800 range. The only downside I can think of is its difficulty in targeting missiles.

Their main drawback is the terrible armor penetration even by beam standard. It start stable so that help a bit but once it's in vibration it's around 25% as efficient as a Tactical Laser at breaching armor. They are however twice as strong against hulls and shields, but cost more and have less range. I could probably lower their range to 700 though, it's a tad long once you add some Range hull-mods.

Finally an update! I didn't see it included in the patch notes, so I was wondering if they offered commissions.
They do.

Bug: When you sell your last Scy ship in your fleet, your detection range modifier won't reset and you're stuck with it.

Arg! That might be tricky to solve... I also noticed that after getting a Scyan commission you get some reputation drops because I didn't removed the relation status with the Knights of Ludd. And some flavor texts missing... I suppose a hotfix is in order.

Here are a couple things i noticed:

Scy ships have no engine trails

The armor pieces that fall off of an allied ship [ not mine ] are shown with a green box, and i can give commands to them.


Otherwise, this is awesome! i have been waiting for this mod to update!

Yup, that's a consequence from their custom engines, not sure it should be changed.

I couldn't reproduce this. I mean yes the armor bits are in your fleet (that's a limitation from my Twiglib fix for now) and you can assign them orders they will never follow, but not after they fall off. Are you sure you didn't selected one that was still attached in the map? Because the UI has quite a large offset between the real position and the icon position.

Re: [0.7.1a] Scy V0.98 HOTFIX! (06/12/2015)
« Reply #666 on: December 06, 2015, 11:41:29 AM »

Hotfix up! Also I noticed that I have 30% less downloads for Twiglib than Scy, that must be a lot of unhappy player... Remember that TwigLib is required to make Scy run.


Requires LazyWizard's LazyLib.
Also require this temporary fix version of TwigLib while Debido update the main one:
Code
v0.98b

BUGFIXES/IMPROVEMENTS
 - Fixed the sensor debuff remaining after selling your last Scyan ship.
 - Fixed the relation with the now absent Knight of Ludd Faction.
 - Fixed some flavor texts gone missing with the updated markets.
 - Added more possible locations for the Acheron system.

Thanks! (and glad to see some people are reading it ><) Also I forgot to mention that the hotfix won't break saves, but will only take effect on a new game.

Honestly I'm starting to wonder where starsector modding would be without tartiflette doing all these crazy things, the transforming diable fighters, the twiglib nemean lion, the scyan miniguns, the engine reboot, he's always pushing what you can do with these mods.

Haste to try. Play with 10 factions and more in Nexerelin is so funny.  Thank you!

Thanks, I suppose I can reasonably consider myself part of this little group that like to push the envelope of the game. Though I insist that it is a common effort. Scy wouldn't have gone far without Debido, Dark.Revenant, Mesotronik, Histidine, 19_30, SniZupGun, SilentStormp and a few others... Now that being said, Scy is but a training exercise for Seeker.  ;D

Ill see if i can get a screenshot.

- The antimissiles on the Tisiphone frigate make the out of ammo sound and don't fire, but it still says it has 50.

- Recon variant of the Argus support carrier has expanded magazines, but it has no weapons with ammo.


What i meant before was that when the broken armor pieces should have been yellow for allies, or blue for destroyed, they were green the whole time.

I'm noticing that it's near impossible to do procurement contracts with scy installed, at least half of them, in some cases all of them, are for large numbers of scy intelligence chips. Is this intended or an unavoidable consequence?

I'm trying a couple of solutions there, without much success sadly (I'll probably have to make them a non-economy item). But there is a couple of legal ways to obtain them...
