There should be an 07.cat/dat in the zip. It needs to be the last number in your TC directory, so you may need to rename them.

If not there, download the phq file and unpack into the TC directory. If you have an 07 already, then unpack it somewhere temp, rename and copy.

You must do this before you drop an HQ, or it wont be used.

I've got X3TC v1.4 and, realizing the game's a bit of a slow starter, have downloaded your amazing (but rather long!) manual and also the AMS Mod V.1. Unfortunately I have not been able to apply it as I have not yet seen the instruction on how to do so. I tried unzipping straight to the program folder and that didn't work, then I added a "mods" folder and sent it to that and that didn't work either. I have fiddled around with the folders but so far haven't hit on the right combination. I have succeeded in getting the "Select Mod" on the first screen to light up occasionally but then the game proceeded as normal. I get the feelimg that I have missed somethjing obvious but can't think what it is. Can someone point me in the right direction, please.

Cheers
Mike

Hey Apricotslice, I am running into a problem with your combined mod, v1. when I jump into the battlecrusier I can't land any ships on it. It indicates there is docking for 50 but no docking commands come up in the menu's. any way you can tell me how to fix this. thanks for you time your scripts are great. Oh sorry not combined but merged-Mod thanks

The M2 doesnt have a docking port in the design, so its impossible to dock a ship normally.

You have to use beamdock to get them on or off. And never jump into a ship from the M2, always beam it out first, then beam accross to it. And vise versa, beam back to the M2, then beamdock the ship.

The AMS mod should be in the mods directory (both files).

The zip should just unzip into the TC directory and create the other sub directories directly beneath it.

If the zip didnt unzip into the game properly, I'd like details of where you unzipped to, and a screen print from windows explorer showing the directory structure it created.

The jump off screen for the game should have the select mod option highlighted, go in there, click on the AMS mod, then ok, then start the game. To use the mod immediately, use the Argon Patriot start.

btw, this should have been posted on the AMS thread, and could a mod please move it there ?

Point taken, I seem to have not put any instructions on the OP. I'll rectify that presently.

Instalation instructions added to the OP.

And the download link has been changed to the download site, and not the specific file, in preparation for v2.

Plans :

When the v2 patch is released, the AMS mod should be out for it within a day or so, real life permitting.

After v2, I plan to add in the Khaak, Pirate and Goner mods I did for X3R with game starts for each, and possibly a Xenon version. Not sure on timing though. All of them will be in the 1 mod, so what you play will depend on the game start you select.

Gunbus and Beamdock

Post by Stoneface55 » Fri, 27. Mar 09, 21:14

Apricotslice,
I just installed your AMS mod. bought the gunbus at light of heart shipyard, installed the default wares plus a transporter device, jumpdrive and ecells.
I tried using the beamdock on a Disco and it keeps telling me "command rejected".
I'm playing the custom game.

What am I doing wrong?

nevermind.
I deleted the game. Tired of it crashing to winsuk every time
I'm in a mission.

M6 isnt a ship that Beamdock works on. It only works on TL, M1, M2 (with docking slots) and TM.

Just dock the M5 normally !

Whats "winsuk" mean ? If your game is crashing, then you have issues for technical support. Its highly unlikely the mod is causing this.

There are 2 missions where beamdock will cause a CTW. These are documented in my walkthroughs.

Updated to TC v2. Please advise of any issues found.

Download AMS version 1.1 from my download site, link in signature.

Unzip into the directory above the TC directory.

PHQ patch is now numbered 08. If you have other patches 08 and above, renumber them upward by 1 before installing AMS 1.1.

Remember to reselect the new version of the mod before you begin playing the game again.

If you use the Argon Patriot start, it gives you a fleet to start with instead of a bit of tissue paper with popguns, on the basis that you already had a fleet from the previous game, and you didnt lose it, and are not starting again, but just continuing on with your previous game entity.

Any other start gets the normal tissue paper with popguns, but gives you access to buy the Apricot ships.

Gives you Apricot ships that can mount all guns and missiles, all sheilds, much bigger cargo bays and docking bays, and can be a lot faster.

Basically the idea is that the ships can be customised any way you want, to fit the way you play the game, and any performance problems you need to overcome. Like getting a blank ship with all the options and you can fill it in how you want.

ok I just got 1.1, a few ship names and commands are still scrambled. I'm new to your mod so I don't know what they're supposed to say/do. I'm steam so I'm still 1.4
