OK great. Mass Drivers against fighters I suppose?

First: big thanks to the author of CODEA. This script is truly a gamechanger, especially for carrier aficionados like myself. And not only have you changed features, you have also added RPG elements and new gameplay goals (promotion etc). Very well done.

One question re MEFOS: I don't understand German well enough to understand exactly how to intercept the military transporters which move around turret and flight personnel. Must I be docked at the station that the transporter is docking at before it arrives to get accosted by the transporter pilot, or how does it work?

I don't know, in which kind of situation mass drivers get used ... but they are already included in the "module" for weapon-changing as far as I know.
Just try it.

Yes, you have to dock before the military (a blue one) docks and wait for him. Also see the translated MEFOS manual on page 3 of this thread.

Ok, I have one more question that I hope you can answer: I have hired a number of turret personnel. I have a few mechanics, but I'm missing the flight engineers. According to the document it takes both flight mechanics and flight engineers to start a bomber squadron. Is there something I'm missing?

Also, maybe a bug: I transferred 8 lieutenants to my 8 bombers, but they have since disappeared (the bombers have cargo life support).

Sorry for the delay, but here are several updates with quite a few significant changes:

CODEA Weapon System
(Carrier Orbit Defense of Enemy Attack)
(Version 3.beta.05 - 22. April 2009)

Image Image

-> CODEA Weapon System (Version 3.beta.05)
-> Necessary "Libraries" (Please reinstall during the Update!) (New 10.04.09 !)
-> CODEA Manual .PDF Not yet updated!


Prerequisites: X³ Terran Conflict version 1.3 or higher (not compatible with X³ Reunion) !!


19.04.2009 (Version 3.beta.02)
  • Supply Tender added (refer to Tender Administration in the manual).
  • Performance of flying reconnaissance fighters improved.
  • Several small improvements.
20.04.2009 (Version 3.beta.03)
  • The supply factor of supply tender ships can be set manually in the tender administration.
  • Tender ships don’t transfer wares to docked carriers.
  • If the option „Stop carrier during fighter deployment“ is deactivated and the carrier jumps to a remote system, while fighters are on their way back to the carrier, these fighters will patrol the area until the carrier returns. Up until now they would follow the carrier.
  • Fighters did not check their stock of missiles at launch. Fixed.
  • Several small improvements.
22.04.2009 (Version 3.beta.04)
  • CODEA corvette added (Pilot rank requirements!).
  • Tender ships will take their own planned selection of wares into account, when transferring wares.
    [*The highest achievable rank on a CODEA carrier was Lieutenant. Now pilots on a tender can be promoted to commander.
  • Reconnaissance fighters will take position around the station the carrier is docked to
  • Tender and corvettes will fly in a holding pattern while the carrier is docked.
  • Mechanics do now repair the carrier.
  • Tender ships of the class TL now require a pilot of the rank commander.
  • All options regarding player notification have been moved to the general options menu.
  • Several small improvements.
22.04.2009 II (Version 3.beta.05)
  • Tender behavior revised.

You need one lieutenant (pilot), one mechanic and one technician for one bomber. I don't know how you thought of flight engineers.

Are you sure you have transferred the right pilots. Did you use the "transfer pilots" command of the CODEA console? The pilots are, unlike marines, not actually in the cargo bay but are only recognizable by the pilots name in the ships details.

Ok, I got it now. The 'flight engineer' misunderstanding was a translation problem: they're listed as flight engineers in the pdf file and called 'technics' in the game.

My other problem was that I hadn't understood that the technics and the mechanic need to be transported onto the bomber, not in the carrier. I had assumed the crew just needed to be present on the carrier but I was wrong.

In the CODEA PDF Manual? If so I will fix it.

This looks like a really special script, enabling carriers to be truly effective, and I look forward to giving it a go.

Are we likly to see it put submited for the bonus pack?

Yes, they're called flight engineers in the manual and technics in game.

I think you should call them flight engineers ingame too. 'Technics' is not english :-)

I translated the manual without knowing all the ingame terms. For the CODEA manual I checked out the MEFOS terms and corrected technics to technicians.

As I said the MEFOS manual is preliminary and I'll post an updated version in a few days in a new MEFOS topic.

I think Lucike mentioned in the german topic that there a no plans to submit CODEA to the Bonus Pack. One of the reason is that CODEA violates some bonus pack guidelines (e.g. letting M8s dock to carriers...)
