=============================================
Name: Ashley's Factories
Version: V2.5
Author: Saint-Ashley Armegeddon
Updated: 09/11/2007
=============================================


To install:

- Use Cycrows X Script installer or do it the hard way!

- Extract the file into the main X3 directory, it should
contain a scripts and mods directory with all the
appopriate files.

- Start X3, and at the configuration dialog, click the
'Select Mod Package' button, then highlight the entry
'Ash.Fabs.ExtHub.2.5' and click OK, next hit 'Start X3'.

=============================================

1. Basic Idea:

Will help reduce cluttered complex designs as XL factories reduce the need for multiple factories of the same type to supply each other.

2. Use With Other Mods:

This mod will probally be compatable with most mods that are curently avaiable. Just attempt to merge them as this if you wish to use this mod and do not want to combine the mods yourself, just leave a post in topic asking for a combo of the mods you want.

Please note you must post the mods you want [Names AND versions Please!]

3. Read the readme's Before sending me PM's about mod combinations PLEASE!
Note: C:\Program Files\EGOSOFT\X3 REUNION\Readme\Ashleys Factories & Extended Complex Hubs (Default location for US installations) Is where you should be able to find them ;)


4. It should take 30 seconds to 2 minuites to set up the resources. That means you CANNOT connect the factories to a complex before hand! Resources must be fixed first!

===========================================

If you have a problem finding a SY or haveing resources set up correctly, please run 'ash.force.reset.XXL' through the script editor. This will force a reinstall of Ashleys SY's and recall all resource libs. It will take up to 10 minuites to take effect.

===========================================

Armegeddon wrote:Extended Complex Hub and Complex Node Bazaar

Replaces the standard 10 dock Complex Hub with an Extended Complex Hub offering much increased docking facilities. Also adds a Complex Node Bazaar which has 14 connection nodes, no docking ability, and no products or resources.

Final version of the Extended Complex Hub will contain:
2x internal hanger bays (second added to keep hub looking symetrical and give two paths for ships to dock at so they don't cause too much of a traffic jam) offering nearly unlimited docking of M3/M4/M5 ships.
2x Quicklaunch bays to prevent undocking small ships from getting in the way of docking craft.
4x 5 port docking clamps offering upto 20 TS/TP/M6 ships to dock simultaneously
1x Capital ship docking arm allowing a single TL/M2/M1 to dock

Merged versions

Extended Complex Hub merged with Ashley's L/XL/XXL factories mod can be found in the thread for the XXL mod

HERE.

From the Readme:
Extended Complex Hub and Complex Node Bazaar for all races (standalone)

This mod replaces the standard 10 dock Complex Hub with an Extended Complex Hub featuring increased docking capabilities. It also provides a Complex Node Bazaar which has 14 connection nodes, but no docking and no products or resources.

Both items will be stocked at every shipyard in the game. They have no reputation requirement to buy, so as long as you can dock a TL to the shipyard, you can buy one. The Complex Node Bazaar is priced at 1,038,784 credits (4 times a normal construction kit), and the Extended Complex Hub is priced at 779,088 credits (3 times a normal construction kit).

Installation:
1) Ensure no ships are docked at any of your complex hubs.
2) Do not be in the same sector as any complex hub.


Uninstalling:
Due to the game being unable to reconcile the number of docking spaces when the complex hub changes, uninstalling this mod will make your game unloadable. If you really wish to uninstall, destroy all of the Extended Complex Hubs and save your game first.


What was changed:
Tfactories.xml was modified to replace the race Complex Construction Kits and Complex Hubs slots with the Extended Complex Hub. This was necesarry due to the game refusing to place a construction kit/complex hub if it was not in one of those 5 positions in the file. Complex Node Bazaar was added after the Paranid Tractor Beam Factory.

Farther away view of above picture. The Phoenix is the largest ship in the game and it has no problem docking with the Hub. You can see that there is a connection tube running downwards from the back of the hub. The Capital ship docking arm is far enough forward that even wide-arse Boron ships can dock with no problem.

===========================================
V2.5 (Current Version)

* Fixed Teladi SPP XXL to correct resources.
* Further Improved performance of AL Scripts.
* Added 'ash.force.reset.XXL' which can be used to force the reinstall of Ash Fabs, and SY's.
* Improved resource librarys for all races.
* Improved delay in resource correction for fabs.
* Lowered CPU usage.
* Updated scene file for Armegeddons Extended Complex Hub.

*** Now only availabe with Armegeddons Extended Complex Hubs, and Node Bazzar.
*** Compatible versions will be released shortly (within a few weeks) for all major mods.


===========================================
V2.4 (Never Released)

* Added PHQ's to Ashleys SY's.
* Improved performance of AL Scripts.

===========================================

V2.3

* Added combined support for XFP using the same scripts. They can now be interchanged between different mods.
* Fixed a small bug in the placement of the SY's which could cause capitol class ships not to dock.
* Now only Extended Complex Hub version is available. (It doesnt mean you have to use them)

===========================================
V2.2

* Added in XL and XXL version of Ore, Silicon, and Nividium Mines
* Added check to scripts in case mod is not selected in X3 launcher

===========================================
V2.10

* multiple bugfixes that I can't remember

===========================================
v2.00 (Update done by Armegeddon)

* Rewrite and complete integration of Custom Factory Library into XXL mod
-The Custom Factory Library now uses an AL setting ('XXL fab automtic resource fixer') to control if new
-station are automatically scanned or if a command is placed in station commands.
-If the AL setting is turned "OFF" a new command is enabled in the command menu of all player stations.
-The new command is labeled "Fix Station Resources". Selecting this command will check every station
-that the player owns and make sure the resources are correctly setup.
-When the AL setting is turned "ON" player stations will be checked automatically every 10 seconds.

* Added Nividium M and L mines each of the 5 mod shipyards
* Added Concussion Impulse Generator M/L/XL/XXL fabs to each of the 5 mod shipyards
* Added Terran Alpha/Beta Electro-Magnetic Plasma Cannon forges M/L/XL/XXL to each of the 5 mod shipyards
* Added Kha'ak Alpha/Beta/Gamme Kyon Emitter Forges M/L/XL/XXL to each of the 5 mod shipyards
* If you are able to combine this mod with DDRS, you will also have access to 2 addtional factory lines
-The Anti-Matter Pulse Cannon from the Boron and Teladi mod shipyards
-The 5GJ shield from the Argon, Split, and Paranid mod shipyards
* Altered the Expanded Complex Hub model so that the docking tube no longer comes off the bottom and prevents big

ships from docking when the player is In-Sector. This change will not take effect on existing Expanded Hubs, and

may even cause the game to crash. It is recommended to destroy all Expanded Hubs prior to installing this

version, or start a new game.

=============================================

* Added undocking to SY's before the scripts destroy them upon updateing.

Im not sure you can package mods with his program, keep in mind this *is* a mod, not a 100% script. I will check that out though.

Edit: Heh, Checked this out quite awhile ago, releases are now in *.spk :wink:

Great work, Thanks ALOT.

Not trying to be a pest here, so please don't take it the wrong way, but is there any chance of adding the L and XL of the others needed so i can start making loops in earnest without still needing 2 L food and 2 silicon L's?
Could the parents of the little Argon girl, Suzie, please claim her sealed jar of remains?
She didn't mind the gap and ended up vapourized!

This is an option for addition in a update. As of right now I dont see why they shouldnt be implemented.

Possible work for tomorrow :P

Edit: Has been completed :P

I might have this done by tomorrow. Kinda skeptical of importing XL food and mines because the way Im adding the factories NPC's can also buy them and of course run them, this may have a dramatic effect on the X3 economy.

Ashley
I say let them use them too, over half of the sectors i have visited are starving to death anyways, mostly due to them being to stupid to buy energy, but even if they did build these factories it would save me having to have every complex be a loop and even so, there is a good chance they would just get destroyed quickly anyways due to the GOD engine.

Can anyone help me throw together a list of all the food fabs for each race? As I do not know all the races well except for Argon.

Also if their is any other facts that should be upgraded please post its name / race. Thanks.

XL Mines are complete I just need to write the scripts for them.

Just FYI, the AI will not use these new factories unless you end up modifying the x3 map to explicitly include them. Even new factories are declared in the map before the game is even started, theyre just declared differently.

So don't worry about this killing the balance of the game, it will simply make life easier for you! =]

Excel sheet of all stations in the game.

This should give you a good idea of food stations.

I installed your mod and it shifts existing factories...e.g a cattle ranch became a wheat farm now, but still produces argnu meat.

It seems that you modified the references of the existing stations, so i willl uninstall the mod again, until you fixed that.

*edit
X3 Version used was 1.3 german
