So i decided to implement the auto-repair feature myself
Playing X3AP with XRM, the universe has become a lot more dangerous and pirates roam everywhere with their annoying mass drives bypassing shields. This also means that my fleet of UTs often requests my assistance for repairs when docked at a shipyard. At the time of writing I have 21 UTs doing my business, and i plan to expand this to at least 30 before moving on to other ventures. So repair requests will for me only become an even bigger burden.
I uploaded the patch fix here:
How it works
In the current version 18.104.22.168 of MK3 IR, a trader will head for a shipyard if he is either: below 80% hull, or above level 20 and below 100% hull. Once docked, he will notify the player that his ship needs repairs, and then just idle at the station.
With the changes I implemented in the patch, the trader will simply repair once docked at a shipyard and resume trading - business as usual
However, if the player is either lacking the funds to pay for the repairs or the trader had to dock at a station that is not a shipyard, the player will still receive the usual message that the ship is damaged and needs assistance.
The auto-repair feature is compatible with trade overview and the repair costs is of course subtracted from the players funds.
How to install
- Download and install MK3 IR version 22.214.171.124
- Download the auto-repair patch and overwrite the old plugin.autotrade.main.xml file in the scripts folder, with the new one
- I noticed that i had to restart my current UTs for them to run with the latest script changes - not sure if you have to do the same
Happy profits !
