Introducing Cold War! With this plugin you can be hired by the various races to attack other races assets, depending on the races disposition, and be rewarded based on the amount of notoriety you manage to lose with the enemy.
- Notoriety can be annoying to work with. I've used a library that should normalize it to keep rewards consistent. If anyone sees very inconsistent rewards for destroying stuff (after the initial 'surprise attack' payments), please let me know asap! For the technically minded, please check out this thread, where I try to explain and demonstrate how this works.
- Reward amounts, I think, are set quite balanced, but please anyone let me know if you think it is too much/little of a reward for what you destroy.

=========================================== Name: Cold War Version: V1.0 Author: Voxol Updated: 22/08/2006 =========================================== The races are at war, only noone knows it yet. With this plugin, you will start to see new a new BBS entry when your ranking with a race is above Federation Martial (or equivalent). An unknown official will offer you the chance to be rewarded for destroying ships and stations of the opposing race. This is linked to your notoriety, so the more notoriety you lose with the enemy, the more you get paid... NOTES: - Each race has a seperate likelihood of offering on the BBS, depending on their general disposition. - Each race has a seperate likelihood of offering the contract against each other race, depending on how much they have in common. - Initial couple of rewards for a surprise attack may be high as notoriety drops suddenly, then it will reduce to more stable payments. - If you gain too much notoriety with the enemy race, the contract will be cancelled. - If you lose too much notoriety with your employer, the contract will be cancelled. ============================================ Change log: 1.0 - Initial release. ============================================ Technical: Language file: 8710 Text page: 8710
