Out of curiosity, what happened to the discussion thread, in the MSCI forum it self?


Also I thought it might be useful to append to the inc/dec commands

Running the command on an enum type, result in converting the enum an integer, and then incrementing that.
e.g. $var = FLRET_DESTROYED, is the equivalent to 1, so incrementing this will result in $var = 2
Running the command on a non integer, or non integer related type, result in returning 0.

Yes some clean-up was made prior to make the forum public. ;-)

Can I have permission to use your articles please?

I've written an IDE for X scripting and one of the features is displaying the description and usage of each command through tooltips. Since the forum is public I assume it's ok for me to steal all your existing command descriptions but I'd like to include a link in every tooltip to the relevant MSCI page, where those pages exist - I'm not sure who to ask, but may i use your articles please?

Given its public info and there to help users I'd say its ok if you use it, but feel free to reference those who did a huge job so far.

Hi,

Is there or will there be an offline version for those of us who do not have internet access? Due to my situation I can only get online once every few months now. I play X3 constant but have to do everything offline and the same between my limited ability to get online. This reference would be great but I need an offline version obviously..

No, there isn't.
Creating an offline version would take some time, time which I don't have and based on the rather small activity in the MSCI forum in the last months I guess no other team member, as well. But feel free to create an offline version on your own. :)

IIRC mark_a_condren already posted a pdf- or word-document somewhere with some pieces of information about several script commands. Maybe that can be used as basis.

Links to docs

These are the same file just different formats. They are very much a VIP, they were started so i could build an offline version but they never got very far. You are most welcome to look at them and continue them if you like.

MSCI Scripting Code for X3TCv2_5_PDF_v1.pdf

MSCI Scripting Code for X3TCv2_5_Open_Office.odt

They are both hosted on the X3TC Google code site here

I just realised, the new AP script commands being (hopefully) explained in the Survival Guide... is kind of pointless when they could just be put up in the MSCI reference...?

Just as a matter of interest, why are there commands in the indexes with no direct link ?

Without a direct link, its almost impossible to find anything, and I was looking for one of them yesterday to find the meaning of one of the feilds. As I found out later, lack of that field because I didnt understand what it wanted, was why the command failed to work.

The documentation isnt much use if you cant easily find it.
