spectre this is a known problem and is why i am waiting for another fix. the author of the mod recognised in another thread that there is a mistake in the unleashed no civs version and is fixing it. just patience for now :)
I used to list PC parts here, but "the best" will suffice!

Xtra Jobs updated.

Spectre01:

There's no errors in the SRM version, so my guess is that the number of Jobs hasn't gone up much since the previous version. Just another hundred and fifty new ships flying around. You wouldn't happen to have added anything else, would you?

Is about 10k scripts running unusual? I have been having performance problems, too, and my game has about 10k scripts running. Is there something I can do to evaluate whether there is a problem?

Well, the way I fixed my problem is that I took an empty job file to make all the ships in the universe nameless. And use that remove nameless ship script to remove every ship in the universe. Then put in the 3.5 SRM-unleashed no civ job file. Seems to fix it. Now the running scripts are hover around 8.5k and my performance is more more stable.

I think when I updated from 3.3 to 3.4 job file, there's some job pile up that created some unnessasary jobs thus the running script went up thousands.

Hope to see the next updated version with more unnessasary jobs cut down :D

I've a quick question here,
people have been looking for a way to equip ships in game without having to go through and do each ship 'by hand' so to speak,

im curious,
would it be possible to some how run this script on a ship you want equipped or a 'tender' to equip ships for you?
i know its not writen to do that, but i mean more 'in theory',

Possible, yes. However, what you're looking for already exists. Try CODEA. I believe there are a few other options out there as well.

How many version of Litcube's EES are there now, and who's modified them?

There's two minor but important things that need to be fixed with 3 lines of code. Once I get the different versions, I'll change them.

Just the one. All of Griffiths' changes have been incorporated into it.

Cool. I just took a look, and actually Roger has made the modification already (which was to add a check to skip adding a laser if it couldn't find one, resulting in a null ware).

The other suggestion I'd have is removing boarding pods from NPC ships, or reducing their number. It'd treated as a missile currently, like all other missiles.

Neither is critical.

Also, I noticed the flags are removed from Lib.Gen.EquipShip. Those flags were useful because the script can be used, and should be used, for specific spawns of AL plugin scripts that require special circumstances (no arial guns, no beams, etc.). It doesn't take away from the package you have now to keep them in there, but it does add functionality for non-jobs related ship spawning, especially as I've seen the request for a script like this in other forum topic.

No biggy. Just a thought.

With missile spawning also using a priorities list, and boarding pods absent from it, they shouldn't be spawned at all.

As for the flags, Griffiths only removed them because he didn't think they were necessary. If someone else can see a use for them, they should certainly be put back in.

Hi im using the latest XTra pack from Cadius with your latest Jobs pack (no civs)........using CMOD and the new trails pack.

Noticed two possible errors....

1 Their are no Teladi Pteranodon Heavy Battleships to be found anywhere....but their are a large number of Teladi Military Mammoths in Teladi core sectors.......!!!

2 Their are no Odysseus to be found anywhere.....but their are often 2-3 or more Zeus in most core paranid sectors..

1-- Yes, there are. Two of them. I've increased the number to five. The Mammoths were another issue entirely, which has been fixed.

2-- Oops. Odysseus entries had the M1 flag set. Fixed. SRM version had the same problem.

Both versions have been updated.

This is correct, if you are getting ships being spawned with boarding pods then the likelyhood is they are being spawned by the Mission Director.

Those flags are only useful in the current setup if you hardcode weapon types which means a different version of EES for each weapon mod potentially.

A possible alternate and more flexible solution would be to add a laser sub-type mapping table (with it's own page) and use an integer mask with some nominal default settings for what each bit means (e.g. bit 0 = Beam, bit 1 = Area Affect, bit 2 = Ignore Shields, etc).

@Roger

You're absolutely right about the hardcoded thing. If you had to write EESs for each mod, you'd come across that. It's a valid point.

It's too bad there's no reference in game for TLaser bit flags like there is for missiles.
