[TC/AP][SCRIPT] Aran Finder [v2 - 09/02/2013]

Aran Finder

Image Italian topic

Hi all! I wish to share with you a script I created some hours ago: the ARAN FINDER :P

The Aran Finder helps you to find the notorious Aran in the unfocussed sectors. When you are in one of them, press the hotkey previously assigned to the script. The script will ask you if you want to activate coordinate detection. If you accept, you have to choose the precision level, that is between 1 and 3. On level 1 only one of the 3 space coordinates will be revealed, on level 3 they will be all revealed. The price increases as much as the precision level (the base price is 60 Energy Cells, 3 Computer Components, 1 Advanced Satellite, 1 Microchip and 4 Silicon Wafers; other 30 Cells, 2 Computer Components, 1 Advanced Satellite, 1 Microchip and 2 Silicon Wafers will be required for each level). Then the software will inform you about the possible presence of the Aran in the sector and, if selected, the script will also show you its coordinates.

Sorta cheaty, aint it?
Why don't you put in the coordinate function an optional addon and just make the script report the presence of an Aran?

Uhm... what if I make the coordinate option cost more than a normal activation? :P

Yep that would be a good idea. Maybe more ecells or even a satellite.

So, what does it cost if you don't want any coords?

It was 5 years ago, but I think the costs are the ones described in the first post and you can choose to get only one of the 3 coordinates, but not 0. Don't ask me why I implemented it that way :lol:
