X3-Reunion 2.0.02 (REQUIRED) -You should have this already
Bonus Pack 3.1.05 -You should have this already (but it isn't needed for this to work)
Community Mod Pack 2.01 {EMP} (REQUIRED) -You should seriously think about using this as a lot or scripts and Mods that add wares use it.
Cycrow's Script Manager (REQUIRED) -You should have this already as it is usually the default for installing scripts now.

From that list the only thing (Mod) you would need to add is the EMP. The EMP only adds more ware slots. It doesn't add anything but these slots so scripts can add additional wares. Without this Mod ware slots would be filled rather quickly.

It is simple to install.

P.S. If you're thinking of making a MOD you should really consider adding the EMP for the added wares support.

Edited to fix the offending CMP to EMP. :P

Aye, support for the CMP is somewhat expected with most mods and many, many scripts use it. My subsequent scripts have used Custom Wares instead, but I don't really feel a need to change from using the CMP to using Custom Wares, unless there is continued demand. Indeed, Custom Wares essentially amounts to a mod as well, but Cycrow's installer auto-merges Custom Wares with mods so it doesn't feel like one.

From what I've read it's fairly easy to support the CMP in a mod and is a fairly good idea since so many scripts use it.

Thanks for all the input, gang.

Here you go: http://forum3.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=119914

And, just so we're clear, LEMKI doesn't require any mods besides the above Community Extended Mod Pack (I was calling it CMP, but it's EMP).

Edit: BTW, if you're running X3 2.0 (which I assume you are), be sure to get the EMP labeled "2.01 Compatable Version by Cycrow".

Aye, that's Cycrow's SEWN (Satellite Early Warning Network) script. It's brilliant (although if you find a problem with sats not respawning, let me know as I found a bug and I'm not sure if Cycrow had a chance to fix it in the release version). http://x3.ircwhore.co.uk/Scripts/sewn/

SMERL...good name...someone needs to write a script to fit that acronym. ;)

Yeah, especially considering there is an Electro Magnetic Pulse add-on.

Sorry for digging up an old thread, but the script doesnt seem to work, i have all the prerequisit i see all the script in the script browser, but it doesnt add the item in the argon equipment dock, anyone know how i can fix that? By manualy activating something, or f0orcing the setup program to work?

Yeah! It dosnt work for me either.

Though ive a few suggestions for the mod.

1) Make an option that the Pirate/Smuggler ships can pay a "TAX" of 100 Credits for not getting their ID's transmitted to the Sector forces. If they not pay, they get transmitted their ID's to the Police immediately. Should they pay, the Pirates/Traders should remain neutral (blue). Though, not all will pay (like not all pilots will jump out if you try to capture their ships).

2) Make an option to configure the Settings of the Law Enforcement Device for every Races Sector (means that you could have one setting for all Argon sectors, one for all Teladi ones, etc...).

3) Your own ships should also be scanned. If they transport Illegal goods a certain amount of Credits should be deducted from the Player account, and the entry in the Scan log should be deleted (for Uni Trader it should be deducted from their account). If the Player has not enough money in the account, the ID of the ship with the illegal wares should be transmitted to the Sectorforces like it would be with normal Pirates.

jocan2003: thanks for letting me know what your issue was. LEMKI is actually a pretty simple (in design) script as it was my first one. Not a lot should be able to go wrong. Also, there's nothing wrong with digging up an old thread in a case like this. It is my understanding that script threads like this one are the most appropriate place for technical support discussion for that script, no matter how long ago the last post was. This is very different from, for example, regular discussion threads.

Sephirorth-omega: Regarding your fine suggestions:
1) The various government authorities have found hard-line implementation of their laws more appropriate (and profitable). Seizing illicit goods and occasionally ships, rather than collecting fines, has been deemed much better for the commonwealth. ;)
2) Not really hard, but more work than I really want to put into this script. I want to keep it simple.
3)Your own ships are be scanned, and if your current ship is carrying illegal goods, you are warned. But since I'm not too interested in implementing (1)...

The real problem is that I've become much busier in RL than I was not too long ago so I've not even had time to play X3 for myself. So my "all suggestions welcome" is a bit diminished by that right now. :oops:

Thanks all.

I changed few thing in the script for my own gameplay suit, i changed all the civilian anger chance to 1% because with huge fleet like the one im building, it can quickly turn to a mess of *you have loosed recognition* because my patrol killed all split on sight because only one turned red on the scanner... and its even worsed if one military turn red....

just to let my impression off, but for solo play and merchant play with no offesive unit patroling the civilian turning red is a must :D involve gameplay.

BTW the script is awesome, finaly i got something to do to get some cash. Killing pirate invading wasnt enough since i was waiting 30 minute to have a small skirmish, now even the pirate that just finished buying my goods get killed and a part of my goods returned more profit for me :D

Glad you're enjoying it. :) And that's one of the greatest joys of learning to script, if only a little. Not only can you create all new functionality, but, perhaps even better, you can tweak all the other scripts (including ES scripts) to work they way you think they should. For example, I've rewritten all of the core ES move and jump scripts to support Cycrow's Advanced Jumpdrive. :twisted: (And before anyone asks, no I can't release them. Sorry. :()
