[MOD] Enhanced BBS (Less talk, more missions)

Post by Ryuujin » Fri, 16. Dec 05, 21:18

From the read me:
// ENHANCED BBS MOD for X3: REUNION
// By Ryuujin (Ryuujin_0@Yahoo.co.uk)
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

After landing at my 20th Trading dock in my TP, and having failed to find a tour or transport mission within my rank I decided it was time for a change. So I simply ripped out the superflous trash, and hey presto, we have a mod.

This alteration basiclly removes all the non-functional stuff, cute stories about how 3 legged squidrays who saved a drowning baby Paranid and whatnot, so you just get the paying jobs, gambling and economic event reports. The plot stuff is left in too so it should be safe in story mode.


The read me says it all really. Cuts out the random chit chat, and leaves in just the meaty BBS offers. If you have nay problems, or suggested mods I should combine it with, just say.


Edit:
This mod should not adversely affect any BBS add on scripts, such as Bounty Hunter Guild, or Engine Overtuning
^_- thanks for the reminder.


Attention: This mod doesn't seem to be as beneficial as initial testing showed. You can still get the file but, I don't think it's as beneficial as I'd hoped.

Sounds good. I'l give it a try when I download it. Currently when I select the free type, it just sits there saying that I have requested the file, and nothing happens.

Nope - well, I'm not *certain* but I'm 99.9% sure it will not effect any BBS add on scripts/mods since they use a seperate file that adds onto this one.

Bendy: Yeah that service is a total advert whore, it makes you wait in a queue if there's a lot of users (the time is listed near the bottom). Like I said if anyone has any suggestions where I should stick it. (BESIDES the obvious)

:o 33 minutes wait? Surely someone has somewhere that it can be hosted? If not, I guess I shall just have to wait.

Ouch, never seen it that long, said 9 minutes for me. But I've never tried using that service during "American hours", internet is always busiest around now.

Encountered one problem. I used the cockpit version, but my Split Mamba's cockpit disappeared.

Also, the system I arrived in (where I last saved) had no BBS messages at all in any of it's stations. Not really a problem though, as I assume it's fixed if I leave the system then come back in.

Other than that, it works just as it should.

Its just one big wait, and the problem is it doesn't go down, so I don't know how long it has now :oops:

Hrm. Have you tried exitting and then returning to your ship? (This happens sometimes when enabling a cockpit mod for the first time)

Also are you running any other mods? When I tested it, any given station always had at least 1 mission.

Yep, I switched to a Harrier, a Demeter and a Jaguar and they all had cockpits. Only the Mamba lost it :/

I also tried changing systems, docking and undocking and jumping halfway across the universe.

This sounds great.

I'm using the cockpit callback mod as well. So I should then download the 'Enhanced BBS + Cockpit Callback'-version? (just to be sure before I get in a 30 min queue).

Ahhhhh! :o . I kept refreshing it to see how long left. Then when I refreshed it again it said that I am already downloading a file, and I can't do anything. I am not downloading a file, I'm WAITING to download a file. Oh well, back to the end of the queue again :oops:

Uploaded them both to Filefront if that's ok, original readme intact.

No wait on any servers.

Shada: Sounds like i may need test this a bit mroe thoroughly

X-it: Yeah get the one with the cockpit callback bundled. That'll give you cockpits as well as the BBS alteration, Although I'm not so sure it was as beneficial as it first seemed. *goes test it more*

Drunken: Yay thanks :)
