AL Plugin : Shield Boosting Tech 10/2/06

Post by LV » Fri, 10. Feb 06, 21:53

Split from my BBS plugins scripts as a separate AL plugin

Shield Boosting Tech ZIP Download

Shield Boosting Tech Cycrow Installer Download

Name : AL Plugin Shield Boosting technology

Description : Plugin which offers Extra shield power for your ships
Version : 1.0
Date : 10/2/06
Author : LV


{EMP} - Extended Mod Pack Needed

Detailed description:


Shield Boosting technology can be purchased from Boron Equipment Docks for Image1 million credits. Once purchased the command "Boost Shields" will appear in the ships secondary command menu.

As long as the chosen ship has enough energy cells equipped extra power will be shunted into the shield generators to upgrade the re-charge rate.

The higher the class ship chosen the more energy is needed and the command will only terminate if the shields are either fully re-charged or there is not enough energy available.

With the command being a secondary command you will be free to go about your business or continue your fighting while they re-charge.


Enjoy :)

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Install:

Just extract the zip file to your main X3 directory or use the Cycrow Installer version



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Uninstall: Set the plugin to off in your AL menu and leave it for a good while. once the commands have gone you should be fine to delete.

Ummm, 1 million credits isn't very much money anymore...... ;)

Good job LV. I was tempted to make something like this for the Syndicate, but you beat me to it!

Sweet System....but...

Post by Skorne Tet'Zu » Sun, 9. Jul 06, 09:18

I'm not sure what's going on... but when ever I engage the Shield Boost I get 100 Energy Cells... whether I need them or not. I know there's a Persoal Energy Script out there... but I don't touch things like that; any idea what's causing this?

Otherwise... Sweet System

Awesome script! I was always wondering why Egosoft did not provide some basic stuff that can be found in other space sims. I guess they just count on the awesome people who creates such mods :)

I found a really minor glitch though: The script keeps recharging the shield even if I try to scoop some cargo. How to replicate:
1) Start the booster with less than 100% shields
2) Press Ctrl-O to open the cargo bay
3) See the shield recharging from zero before you close it.

Not a big deal really but worths mentioning in case it is easily fixable...

Thanks for the mod!

just noticed a command conflict in the script installer when i added this script.

SHIP_40
8810 - BBS Offers
8817 - Shield Boost

strange thing is the previous version of the installer i had (v1.86) never flagged this conflict up?

Hi LV

Sorry to bug you again. I have a slight problem with the remova of this script. Although I think It has something to do with your BBS script to.

Even though I do not have the shield boosting technology script installed anymore. I still get BBS messages. 1 with the offer to use it and another to extend my subscription.

Is there any way you can help me remove these messages?

Edit: I have also noticed, that I still have the Boost Shields command in the extra slot to :(

This was one of my favorite scripts in X3R, are there any plans to implement it into X3TC??

Looking through the scrips and mods download library for TC there are a several scripts that enable the energy transfer between certain subsystems or by the usage of energy cells. None of them does the job for you?
