[0.9.1a] Idoneus Citadel Exiles
« on: May 23, 2020, 05:51:52 AM »



Idoneus Citadel Exiles

Requires LazyLib, MagicLib, GraphicsLib
Download here

Info
This is an updated re-release of Sundog's classic mod, abandoned a few versions ago in 0.65. For those not in the know, ICE was a very complicated mod that used a lot of coding wizardry to work, but due to that same complexity, it stopped being updated. The guys over at Fossic/the CN community, however, picked up the slack in trying to make the mod work, and as such, they have managed to create a stable working version for 0.9.1a, which is the version you see before you now.

Most of the stuff that was originally present in ICE has been brought forward, with various texture and sound updates. There are also a few new ships and other content added, reworks to various hullmods and weapons, while the campaign events now work within Starsector's current existing intel framework.

The Soulbane looks mighty familiar...

Yeah, I know it got re-colored into the final boss for Ship/Weapons Pack's Arcade Mode mission...

I played a couple mission battles, not enough to offer any serious / detailed feedback but it is good to see those cool boys ICE again.

But one thing I think I can point out is that the Scatter PD rocket? Really could use a rework, it seems exactly the same as I recall the original one being. But now a days? There is a way to make it so much cleaner looking and even play a bit smoother and be more compatible with certain types of scripts so here is what I would recommend changing:
- Instead of applying damage to get rid of the rocket? Remove the entity instead.
- Instead of spawning a prox fuzed projectile when it blows? Call spawnDamagingExplosion from the API instead.

So removing instead of destroying, and direct spawning the AOE damage? Will allow you to have total and complete control over the visuals, and also have them explode right away when time instead of basically waiting two frames. This will both look cleaner and run better (it really spams too much vfx right now), and also play better with various exotic scripted defenses notably the things on the super ships in Black Rock Drive Yards but that is far from the only example.

Anyways keep up the good work and I hope to see this mod continually refined and improved upon :)
