New month, new update of sorts:  Sprites as being worked on and I've set up a day to stream if anyone wants to watch me for poops an giggles. I'll be playing music from Pandora in the background, but can play form my own library. Pandora is just easier and things can be added on the fly.

The streaming service I chose was Picarto: https://picarto.tv/Azmond
Fair Warning, my internet is slow as balls at 2mbps... So, the highest I can go without issue is 480 quality.

Likewise, I'm excited as all hell for what's going to be happening this next update! I'll likely kit-bash a few of the newer ships that HAVEN'T been exposed to us. Additionally, I'll continue to expend Salvaging and repair utility ships. Though, that ultimately depends on the new systems. These newer ships I'm also thinking of will liekly try to play a better role in Surveying. Perhaps a Surveying Boat for small-timer operator or an even larger vessel for captains of a massive surveying corp. Who knows. I'll have to develop them after the fact.

I can ceritnaly throw things together, but. I'd like to see what the new mechanics are, how they work, and some of the ships that influence it to see what some common aesthetic choices are done (coincidence or not). Smiley

Either way. Just a post to start off April and yes, I'm in school again. But, With weekends free to me (aside from homework). I can make time and manage myself better certainly. With that, have a good day folks.

There are some typos in latest version that prevent game from starting on Linux when the mod is installed:

- data/weapons/maser.wpn
  lines 7-9
  "irMaster" has to be "irmaster"

- data/hulls/mi_pala.ship
  line 62
  "Pala.png" has to be "pala.png"

That is going to pluage me often. Thank you DinoZ, I'll make the change shortly. Thank you kindly for the information. Smiley

Hey Azmond, could you double-check your Rostor field systems? I noticed all ships with them withstanding absurd amounts of damage. Testing in simulation, I fired 6 clarents at a Cavos frigate and it survived; which is a bit ridiculous.

Oh hell... If they are THAT messed up something really went wrong. Is it the newest update for the mod by the by? If it isn't, update.

It's definitely the latest version.

I think I may have found the problem in the field's script. For example, the basic Rostor Field

Code:
stats.getHullDamageTakenMult().modifyMult(id, 1f - (1f - INCOMING_DAMAGE_MULT) * effectLevel);

Since INCOMING_DAMAGE_MULT is 0.1f, and effect level is 1...

1f - (1f - 0.1f) * 1f
1f - 0.9f
0.1f

Since you're using modifyMult, all damage is reduced to 10% of what it should be.

Changing it to
Code:
stats.getHullDamageTakenMult().modifyMult(id, 1f - INCOMING_DAMAGE_MULT);

Should get it to work.

I freely admit. I am not a very decent code master at all. So in all this would be the reason why the ships with the roster fields have been so difficult being killed.

Remember to change them for all rostor field types, Basic/Liten/Heavy/Thrudgelmir. That mistake made it so that the basic field was stronger than every other type. Metelson got a bad rap in comments in some LP's with them, so I'll spread the word that it's been fixed and Metelson can properly take its place among the the rest of the sector.

Though I'll have to admit that it was kinda funny to watch Nemoanemo gawk when the dinky Actel tanked his entire fleet.  Cheesy

Oh please... I don't need to have that drudged up again. It's allready on the internet FFS. @~@;
I don't need to have it reminded, oh gods above.

I'll impliment the changes, see what happens an speak with some others who have code experience (double tap right?) and see what they think as well.

Haha, sorry about that. Wink That's why you have people test of course - don't sweat it. A problem has been brought to your attention, and now you're going off to attend to it. You ain't doing anything wrong.  Grin

Coming to a system near you!


This is the new Acutor. Shortly I hope to continue putting togther a new capital or two.
In this newest change from 2.95a to 3.00 I have given you new graphics influanced by HELMUT, Flag design's inspired by Bastion's critique- (which I need to credit him for as well, d'oh!) -along with new icons on the new flag.
Finally, new text by the grand Mesotronik. With his assistance which I'm forever grateful for among many others. You now have less eye-cancer when trying to read my "Trying-way-to-hard-to-impress" text.


In this update:
=================

  • New graphics for several ships including a general clean-up of files to avoid artifacts from production.
  • The Rostor field has been properly implanted thanks to Blaze- who I need to credit as well... d'oh again -who put it in simple terms for me to understand
  • New text descriptions from Mesotronik
  • a proper readme text with credits and other information.
  • ... I really need to make a proper change log ...

With that, happy post-0.8! Sorry for the blunders and thank you all so much for dealing with me as I again. Blunder through things an figure crap out. It's always nice- more than I like to admit -hearing another voice for the cogs to process here.

You should be able to continue the game with all the fixes, but you won't see the new capship without restarting. Although technically you wouldn't be able to see the capship at all; because Azmond seems to have forgotten to add the ship graphic to the mod which means it won't load.  Cheesy

Speaking of which:

"spriteName": "graphics/meti/ships/drengur..png",

There's an extra period in there.

Drengur is not fully implemented however, the ship can be gotten through console commands. Consider it an Easter egg for things to come... It's just a prototype. Wink

Edit:: though 2 skins need/should be able to be gotten... Sigh,. Expect a patch shortly. A minor one to implement the skins among Linux/Unix spell checking.

Edit2:: Yup, okay, expect a patch here like friggin' now... Gimmie a bit.


edit3:: I am a moron.
