Perhaps I am confusing 'Bonus Pack' with the 'Super Box' stuff going on. I am unclear as to how they relate to each other.

The bonus pack will be a freely downloadable collection of community scripts chosen as adding functionality which is deemed to complement Terran Conflict.

The superbox will be a commercial re-release of all the games in the X series, along with selected additional content, across the spectrum of fan-created stuff - guides, screenshots, saved games, fan-fiction, scripts, mods, ships, etc.

what scripts?

Post by Sareth01 » Sun, 30. Aug 09, 01:01

what scripts/mods you guys already have? i tried the links on the first page and they didn't work, I'm assuming that i don't have permission. Anyways, it is exciting that over time mods/scripts will be made compatible so that there will be fewer incompatible mods ( i hope! ).
Thanks Egosoft!

just to expand on what eladan said.

the bonus pack are where the scripts get signed, this means anyone can use them without modifiing thier game.

when u submit these, u will need to help the script signing team to make changes where necessary to comply with the script sign rules.

the superbox on the other hand will be a large collection of scripts and mod as well as all the X games together, these scripts are not signed, so u still need the game to be modified to use them. But u wont need to hepl doing any additional work on them as they will be added as is.


Chaosras which is it you wanted your script to be part of, the super box or the bonus pack, or even both?
and ill get it added into the right place.


For anyone else wandering:
The email to send scripts too is specifically for the bonus pack, for the superbox, it'll be best just sending me a message instead.

Both would be great, thanks! And while I have your attention, you can add my HKP Enhanced Missile Barrage to the super box consideration pile :)

I know that these questions are generally not well received, but I would like to have an idea, even a very rough estimation on when the bonus pack will be ready. I'm not interested on the exact date, not even in the month. Just to know if it would be in Q3 or Q4 of 2009 or even in 2010.

Thanks :wink:

You probably are L3 so you can check what happens in the L3+ Script Signing Forum, and draw your own conclusions based on that data.

Yes I am and that's why I'm asking, there's absolutely no updates since July 23th, which can mean two things:
1) All scripts are tested and working OK
2) There are other priorities and the project is on hold.

Either way, there's no hint on when the pack would be ready to be released.

Anyways, is not such a big deal, just wanted more info before deciding to use some unsigned scripts.

amen. I was horribly surprised to find many of the scripts from the X3R bonus pack were not in vanilla X3TC !!!

How CAG and CLS weren't converted is completely beyond me. Dock Manager !!! Simple but missing !!!

I really do hope Egosoft do something innovative and add something that will do something *different* like race invasions and sector takeovers.

What point is there in a bonus pack consisting of scripts we all already use? [EDIT: well perhaps that's a bit presumptuous of me to assume, but I for one would be tearing my hair out and demanding a refund if I weren't using 3P scripts and mods to remove bugs, inexplicably missing features, and obvious frustrations]

P.S. Commercial Agent (CAG) does exist for TC, I've been using it for a while now (to buy the 150k Teladi'm and 450k Ore for the Hub plot among other things) ... sorry I couldn't find it in my browser history to give you the direct link but it is in the GERMAN forum. The file names are
Befehlsbibliothek
Handelsvertretung
Warenlogistiksoftware
(one's CAG, one's CLS [have a guess], one's libraries common to both, thank god that ingame they support english!)

maybe because they no longer worked in TC and egosoft didn't make the scripts, it would be harder for them to convert and test them

egosoft dont have infinite resources to be able to put every features in

u obviosuly dont understand what the bonus pack is all about.
the bonus pack never has been written by egosoft, they dont create the scripts

asking for scripts that dont exist to be added to the bonus pack is ridicoulous.

the bonus pack is about taking the communitys work and allow everyone to use them not just the ppl that are comfortable with modified games.

bonus pack scripts have the same functionality than the ones currently available from the community, the only difference is that they can be played in an unmodified game.

if that doesn't matter for you, then obviously the bonus pack will make no difference to u

Personally I don't consider X3TC to be all that lacking... one visit to the L3 forums can show you that a lot of people are working quite tirelessly fix bugs that exist and others who summarly blast those fixes full of holes again heh... this is mostly done by community members in their own time, which is great...
As for the bonus pack, yeah it's been quiet... I'm a patient man though, it's not like I'm doing anything to further the art of scripting around here heh. I think it's (again) great that Egosoft facilitates this incredible level of community input to the extent of allowing a signed bonus pack to be made out of it. With this in mind it's not exactly fitting to demand that everybody gets their ass into second gear to fork over a bonus pack which is fully created by and for the community is it?
I don't mind the wait personally, it was worth it the last time around :)

I think one of the reasons why there can be no traffic is that there is no beta version of the bonus pack that would not make your game "modified"... I'm happy to do some testing on a not-so-stable version (after all it was the case with most bonus pack releases anyway) but I don't want to start a new game for it...
