Dully noted.

Consider future versions of PG' sector takeover compatible with STO.

Thanks :)

EDIT: As soon you are ready with the libs, I will use plugin.sk.sector.restore($sector) to get/set the ownership.

Sorry I'm late!

I love the idea of mod authors working together! However, can someone give me a scenario where two different sector takeover plugins would need to know which sectors were taken over? The only reason I can think of an event where any information is required is the original sector owner. The current sector owner should be played organically; all plugins should react to the in game [SECTOR]-> get owner race, which wouldn't necessarily require a global array.

I'm totally not disagreeing with the general concept here, I think I just might be missing something. :)

Also, if it were implemented, I agree with Serial's original structure as opposed to a 2D array. The library should be one script written with DARC array parameters (Delete, Add, Return, Clear). Direct interface with the global variable should be illegal.

just lock the sector via

gv $sec+'community.block'

then unlock it via nullifying

i can code that in to check when scanning much easier than pissing around with arrays as it's a 2 line check then which i may have to put in separate scripts if i'm not lucky

and if you do so don't forget to remind me (possibly more than once ;))
