Universal Banking v502

You have gotta love it when your player credit account gets into the billions. But where to put those overflowing credits? One solutions is to stash them in factory accounts, great idea we all say. Then along comes the pirates / Xenon / Khaak etc and blows your credit holding station(s) to space dust .... Ahhhh .... Nooooooo ... my creditsssssss.

The solution is here, put them in a Bank!!!

The Universal Bank can hold you credits in user created accounts and earn you interest on funds deposited in them, Yes that's right, earn interest on your credits. You can also take out credit loans and/or mortgage your ships or stations. You can even sell those unwanted stations to the Bank. "How" you ask? well it is a Bank, isn't that what they do?

Another benefit of Universal Banking is its ability to monitor and manage your stations financial situation. you can set an upper and lower credit limit and the 'Station Financial Manager' will monitor your stations financial position and update its balance to maintain the correct amount of credits in its account. It will check every minute to ensure the correct balance is available.

MarCon Industries in cooperation with Teladi Financial Institutions have combined their efforts to make Universal Banking a reality.


Ok, now for some information you need to know.

- THIS WILL mark your game as ***modified***
- The script editor has to be activated - Thereshallbewings (it will be automatically anyway)
- X3TC v2.5 or above is required, as it uses some of the new script commands.


You MUST turn OFF the standard 'Auto Credit Transfer to Player Account' station credit management or you WILL encounter a bug resulting in the player getting their account topped up to 2,000,000,000 credits repeatedly if you SELL a Station you own. There is nothing that can be done about this bug at this time. The ONLY recourse if you encounter this bug is to reload a previous save before encountering this bug. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Holy crap it's on! Testing right away!

I've found a couple of ReadText errors.ID 718,ID 1209 and ID 1210 are missing.Will keep a look out for other things.Also a question,when selling station are all wares' prices calculated from the average ware price?

Edit: It seems when you withdraw from an account it will not show the correct accounts balance in max amount you can withdraw at the withdrawal input window.

Text Hotfix Available.
Here is the fix for the readtext issues. Embarassed

Hotfix

Extract the zip to your 't' folder or extract and copy to your 't' folder and overwrite the existing file when prompted.

It adds the missing text.


The '0' (Zero) values issue will be fixed tonight. It appears to only happen when you go to transfer credits from one account to another and when selecting the account to transfer it to you selects the 'Create New Account' option Sad . For now just create the new account first then go in and transfer credits to it and the issue does not occure. Very Happy

Just a piece of advice, where it says 2.5 is required, put 'or more recent'. Someone is bound to read it wrong.

Uninstall doesn't seem to remove the Interface hotkey. I waited till it said "scripts disabed, you can uninstall the scripts", saved the game, exit, removed the scripts, and the command is still there.

Sesk

I've noticed this can be a problem if you are running cycrows hotkey manager. I'm working on a way to rectify it if this is the case.
