How can I affect the likelihood that items with a certain tag will show up in a given market, without changing their availability to the faction that owns it?

How can I check if the current ship is being piloted by the player?

How do i get the Peak Performance duration of a ship?
You can get it via getPeakCRDuration() from a ship's mutable stats:

e.g.
   
Code
 public void applyEffectsBeforeShipCreation(HullSize hullSize, MutableShipStatsAPI stats, String id) {
       stats.getPeakCRDuration();

I'm not sure if there's a function that calculates the full stat bonus but all of these functions return float

Code
        stats.getPeakCRDuration().getFlatBonus(source).value;
        stats.getPeakCRDuration().getMultBonus(source).value;
        stats.getPeakCRDuration().getPercentBonus(source).value;

I figured it out - this is a problem with how I'm applying the industry that adds the submarket. Every time I was entering the screen the industry was getting Unapplied and then Applied again, refreshing the stock. At least, I think that's what's going on, since commenting out the unapply code fixed the refreshing.

Ahh yes, the Open Market added by Commerce has/had the same problem. I don't remember if it's fixed in 0.9.1a or just in my dev build, though, but, yeah.

Pretty sure you can use ship.getShipAI() == null for this

I think this might be a simpler and potentially more reliable way to do it:
Code
ship.getMutableStats().getPeakCRDuration().computeEffective(ship.getHullSpec().getNoCRLossTime())

What's the best way to implement a shipsystem taking a chunk (or rapidly increasing loss of) CR?

MutableShipStats has a few entires I tried playing with, but no actual CR loss seems to occur.

Where would one go, if one wanted to have a look under the hood in regards to AI combat profiles, like the standard ship combat behaviour and the Officers traits overriding them?

It's all in core code, so unfortunately there isn't anything exposed you could really look at.

Without knowing what you're trying to do it's hard to guess what the best way to implement it is, but as a last resort you can always brute-force it with ship.setCurrentCR()

I am not sure if i already asked this before, but is there a way to tell nearby enemy AI "hey i gonna do something dangerous, stay away from me"? I wanna make a self-destruct system. But want to make sure the AI can react to it.

Either ship taking a big CR hit on shipsystem activation OR a ship having a greatly increased CR drain while it's active.I tired the second one, but it doesn't look like CR is decreasing at all. Or does it only affect a ship after Peak time?

Check the code for my Wurgandal Tyrant's Maw, I do CR reduction in there.

Hmm. The only thing that comes to mind is deploying a fake enemy fleet member, keeping its position on your ship, and putting an "Avoid" order on it. Might have some side effects, not really sure.

hey, API question: in http://fractalsoftworks.com/starfarer.api/com/fs/starfarer/api/combat/CombatFleetManagerAPI.html

 getTaskManager(boolean ally)

what does that boolean flag do? I'm trying to debug the Edith escort script

[edit] Aaaand as soon as I post I remember to search here and not just google. let me just leave this here...
I think you want:
combatFleetManagerAPI.getTaskManager(false)

Passing true there gives you the task managed for allied forces (for an ongoing battle), not the player's.


[More edits!] Ah darn, but now I'm confused again. According to the above, the following line:

Code
engine.getFleetManager(FleetSide.PLAYER).getTaskManager(true).setPreventFullRetreat(true);

Would only set the allied fleet to the players to no retreat, but the players could still retreat? Because that is not the behavior I see in mission.
