New Imperial Bases

The scripts either run by being called after being one of the other missions are completed or by being called randomly due to sector, cash or playing time.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other Important Scripts


New stuff added since i wrote the webpage


Hijacked Station Mission

Station Security Software

Bank Robbery Mission (That be your bank ;) )

Hire Ts to sector

Hire Combat ship to sector

More Invasions

ODE to CBJ Mission

Any many other things I cant remember


If you are using this small script remember the XAI jumpdrive commands are bundled in there (I modified them to lower the amount of hails as my stuff pumps them out)

Use a fresh save (pref new game) and expect bugs. The only tester its had up to now is me.


I have set it up so all commands must be achieved through the mission completion so when you first try it you'll think nothings happening.

That will change ;)

Well might I say, Holy Bucking Fatshit Batman!!!!!!

Thats a mammoth mod. So I take it the Pirate adversaries of the game are now Imperial pirates, so to speak?

I look forward to playing it once I've finished the basic game :roll:

Yes, I dont get to play as often as I would like.

DZorro,
Well tried it, but could not load any newgame or custom game no more, only savegames work. I did get a bug though, when you hire wingmen and there finished, i keep seeing the voice being played really rappidly, and some weird flashing where your radar is. Once they jump out everthing is back too normal.

DZorro,

There's a good chance of compatibility probs with other scripts

As far as the commands not working right, this thing is like a spiders web you can't just load some as they are all entwined in some way.

PM me and i'll send you the "open all" script ;)

On a freshly installed and 1.4 patched X2 with your scripts and Egosoft's Trade Commands Mk3 you cannot start a new game. It hangs on the loading screenshots forever. I can load a saved game however, but then when trying to run the console, the game hangs again. Removing your scripts fixes both problems.

So, I'd be happy to test, but not really able to do anything further with it in present state. Sounds pretty cool though.

re-download the file and now there will be two folders inside the rar file

1. scripts - stick the contents in your scripts folder

2. "t" - put these files in the t folder.

i should have made it simpler with a readme but i forgot :oops:

No, thats not what I mean.
The Sector is given, but I dont know where this position is, eg. the Racing-Startposition Argon Prime Position X0 Y7. I missing the "Z"- Position, and are this in Kilometers or whatever.

Next: the pirates placed a bomb in any of my station and would have a ship from me, but I wipe out the expected piratbase but the Station is explodet. Thats not fine. Is it possible to ask "if timeout and piratstation existing then blowup playerstation"
