Hi kaistern,
i'm just reading your description - sounds promising. two suggestions for the time you eventually run out of ideas.

1. adding/removing targeted ships from wings by pressing the selection hotkey with a modifier (like SHIFT)
2. some kind of "passive decoy mode". ships set their turrets to missles only and idle around the target (soaking up enemy fire)

best of luck

@Joubarbe: lol I thought that that might be the case, but I still like the idea :D. Sorry about the name... I'm a bad speller lol especially when I am holding a baby in one hand and trying to type in the other :D

It remembers the wing you selected until you select another wing. I am not entirely sure but I think that it will remember it when you save/load too, though that really depends on exactly how global variables work.

@Hector0x: Thanks! 1)I think this is possible :D I'll add it to the future ideas pile. 2) This is the harder of the two, getting them to follow the target is simple enough but the turrets part I'll have to look at. But it will be a good learning experience to see if I can figure it out

All global and local variables are stored in savegames. When you make bigger scripts however, you have to think about LU's E/I.

EDIT : people must have an account to download this on GDrive. You should consider an easier way to download this... .rar on Mediafire, for instance...

The link doesn't work. You need to click "Copy Link" in MediaFire and past that.

Nope, that's not a MediaFire link, try it yourself... You should see a page like mines (XM-R and XM-O).

Well it is a mediafire link (as I can get to that same page from your links through the site's internal links) however I do see that it isn't a single download but instead just opening the entire folder. I think the problem is that I didn't package it first.


Now back to my improvements for my mod :D

I am trying to add betty voices for all the actions so I went here. Cycrow mentioned opening up the main text file to find the part you wanted, but I am unsure what file that is :P Which file is it?

This made me laugh hard...

The main text file is 0001

so you will need to loo kfor 0001-L044.pck for english.

it'll be a pck file rather than xml, so you need to use a tool to unpack it first
the X3 Editor should allow you to view it

for rar files, many programs can read and extract them, but not many can actually make them. Most compression programs will read many formats but only create in thier own
You will want to use winrar, which is the main program for creating rar files

Thank you sir!

lol now when I get home i just have to download and install two more programs and then maybe I'll make some more progress.

Betty not saying things was really starting to bother me. It suprises me how much I like an audible cue that the button I just pushed did what I wanted it to do. Being able to hear "blue wing selected" and "command accepted" will make my life a lot better :D

alright I must be doing something wrong.

Code: Select all

= speak text: page= 350013 id=20003 priority=1

*also tried

START speak text: page= 350013 id=20003 priority=1
but nothing is said. Any idea why? I also tried command accepted (page 13 id 131) with no results.

(page= 350013 id= 20003 is "blue wing")

actually command accepted is now working... just to figure out why blue wing isnt
