Neat idea, just a suggestion though.

Could you make it *scanner_range* instead of a fixed 25km ??

That would seem more logical to me. I used the following in an X2 script:

Code:

$range = 20000
skip if not [This] -> get amount of ware Duplex Scanner in cargo bay
    $range = 40000
skip if not [This] -> get amount of ware Triplex Scanner in cargo bay
    $range = 60000


I've not tried scripting in X3 yet, but i guess the scan ranges would be similar.

Well I thought, since the Teladi are the moneygrubbers and the time being saved by this scanner counts for money, they'd be the ones developing such things.
But If anyone else disagrees I suppose I could change it as well as more/less/fixed stations which sell the device.

Any other suggestions are of course welcome, and if my skills allow it, I'll add some things I have in mind also and update the script.

after using it a couple times it is too powerful i think.

it needs to take a long time to run, or be hard to get, or cost a lot, or something.

@sandalpocalypse
True, I had some similar thoughts. But should it have a higher delay between each scan and/or the scanning itself? And if so, how much? It's currently set to run at a 2 second interval & 10ms between each single scan. I do not know how to alter prices yet so it has to be timing for now.


But...I'm currently trying to script some BBS occurances, it's almost done and only needs some better texts.
My idea was to have 1 advertisement thru Galnet News and a few seperate occurances here and there. Plus having a Dock Mechanic or such buy the Scanner of your hands.

I see what you guys mean about it being too powerful but I personally like how the previous version makes it nearly automated.

I'd be happy to have the ship need to slow down like that if I could get the AI to do the scans.

I doubt it's possible but it might be more acceptible left as in 1.10 (?) but made into an XL or ST ware so you have to use a large-ish vessel to do that kind of scanning.

Just my tup'north.

Well you can put back 1 file from the v1.10 or v1.11 archive to change it back like it was, just overwrite the newer one.

The file you need is --> scripts\adj.advminscan.scan.xml

You can also try and edit the file using the Script Editor, not that hard really. Look for the line --- 003 $maxspeed = 34. Change 34 to whatever you like and save.

EDIT: this no longer works with v1.20 or above.

Edit the file scripts\al.adj.advminscan.main.xml

On line 024 to the right enter Maximum Speed, Delay, Player & Ship. Save & re-activate the AL-Option.
