    Credits: 1,350 Cr
    Prerequisites: Hub plot, Boron Rank "Boron Queens Protectorate"
    Storyline: ENABLED
Lost Lar starting weapons are 2x PAC.
There are also 6x PBE in the hold, but initially they're completely useless since they can't be installed in the ship. Nice bonus though when you finally get to an equipment dock, since they can be sold for about 1.5 million to pay for ship upgrades.
Also, starting cash for the Lost Lar seems to be variable, but tends to be around 12-13k (my game started with 13,067Cr).
Note this was in 2.0, may have been different in earlier versions.

The initial sector and player ship are set in gamestart.xml, but most of the other data for each start is set up in start.xml.

e.g. for Lost Lar:

gamestart.xml

Code: Select all

  <!-- Lost Lar -->
  <gamestart id="118" name="{1900,2018}" description="{1900,2118}" difficulty="{1900,2218}" image="start09" plot="1" requirements="1280">
    <player name="{1900,2318}" species="{1900,2418}" gender="{1900,2518}" age="{1900,2618}"/>
    <!-- Xenon Sector 695 -->
    <!--currently missing from map-->
    <!--<sector x="21" y="5"/>-->
    <sector x="21" y="6"/>
    <ship typename="SS_SH_B_TP_SPECIAL"/>
  </gamestart>
start.xml

Code: Select all

just a noob question:
If we unlock an advanced start, all the main plot are available (goner, terran, final fury, hub , etc ) ?
Or some new start considered few of the main plot like finished already ?

By example
If i start aldrin, aldrin system is already connected to solar system (terran plot finished), ?.

that could be interessing to have fun without doing all the long hard et same plot at every start.

For Aldrin Explorer, the Terran plot is disabled.

For everything else except Custom, all the main plots are available.

How about adding the starting reps for each start?

Damn, might as well start updating...

On the Lost Lar new game start the text states 'Can you return the Queens Daughter alive'.

Is this an actual mission, as the ship has no passengers and there is no mission guidance?

It took 10 attempts just to get out of Xenon space... is there more to this start?


Is this just more cake?

There is no Queen's daughter on board, that is just fluff.

I wrote a post somewhere explaining how to survive Lost lar. Mostly it requires several reloads. Second to that is strafe-run to increase your speed. Set your turrets to "attack my target", target incoming missiles, and when you start getting attacked by multiple IRE, PAC, HEPT start using strafe to dodge. One time you'll get lucky and you won't be attacked by a ship for a good couple of km and won't be swarmed by disruptor or swarm missiles until you are at a safe distance until the gate. I've never got through the gate with full hull but since PBE have such terrible hull damage you can get quite far before they kill you.

There is no GameStarts folder - it's a registry key.

Any idea why I didn't get the Lost Lar start, even though I finished the Hub plot? My boron rank is knight of the Kingdom.
Vanilla game.

Same happened to me. Don't bother, just hack the registry.

So how do you change the registry i tried Elucca's way but i dont have a game starts file to change the registry of just saves and screenshots. I even tried making a new one.




Thanks, John
