[SCRIPT] ACC: Anarkis Carrier Commands | v1.40 | 17 Oct 06

Post by Serial Kicked » Fri, 17. Feb 06, 21:04


===============================
[Script] ACC : Anarkis Carrier Commands 1.40
===============================

French Topic

  • This script adds various commands for TL and M1 class ships to simplify the handling of the docked ships . It allows you to mass (un)assign an homebase and turret orders to your docked fighters, to launch offensive and defensive fighter wings and to easily resupply your ships and carrier. The Fight Software Mk2 must be installed on the carrier. This script also add 2 shortcut keys (that can be set in you Control menu) to dock all ships or clean the current sector when the player is flying a M1 or a TL.
:arrow: New Commands for your carriers:
  • Here's a list of the new commands (located in the general command menu of your carrier):
  • ACC: Homebase Settings
    Display a menu allowing the player to set and remove the homebase settings for various classes of docked ships. They will also be renamed according to the carrier name : "Carrier - ShipType (Class) - number".
  • ACC: Equip docked ships with...
    Will allow to transfer the same amount of a ware (like missiles or e.cells) from the carrier to all the docked ships.
  • ACC: Refuel Carrier with...
    Will allow you to easily refuel a carrier. Select a ware, a quantity and a maximum range (in sectors) and the command will automatically choose the best station. Multiple ships (if needed) will go to the factory to buy the product.
  • ACC: Defensive Wing
    Will send a wing of a specified size to protect the carrier. It'll automatically use mixed M3/4/5 when you're are in sector, and it'll only use M3 when OOS. Ships with less than 20% shield or than 80% hull will dock to the carrier and will be replaced by others from the carrier.
  • ACC: Attack Wing against...
    Will send a wing of a specified amount of fighters to attack a specified target. Ships with less than 80% of hull will return to the carrier automatically. The ships will fly in formation (so a mixed group of M3/4/5 will arrive at the same time on the target). This is a command designed to attack ONE target. If you need to destroy multiple enemy targets use the clean sector command.
  • ACC: Clear Sector
    Will send ships to clean the sector from all enemy activity. All docked ships will be used. 1/5 of the ships will be ordered to defend the carrier.
  • ACC: Dock all ships
    All ships owned by the carrier will be ordered to return home. Ships that are 2+ jumps away will try to use the jumpdrive (if available). You should always use this command to recall ships you've launched using the ACC commands.
:arrow: New Additional Command Slots:
  • There's also some commands in the "Additional Command Slots" of your TL and M1:
  • ACC: Automate Carrier
    The ship will automatically attack and defend itself according to the enemies in the sector. It'll also send you a warning message when there's too many dangerous enemies near it. Very useful when you set your carrier on patrol.
  • ACC: Set Battle Tactics
    This command will show a menu to change how the fighters will act in battle. You will be allowed to change how much damage a ship is allowed to take, the missile usage, to change turret orders of the docked ships, and more. Here's how it looks like:

:arrow: Feature Requests and Bug report:
  • Please report any bug you see on the Community Bugtracker. As this bugtracker is shared by various script projects and authors, please do not forget to select the correct project "X3 Anarkis Carrier Commands". For additional info about the bugtracker itself, check this topic. Thanks.
:arrow: Compatibility:
  • Notice that this script isn't compatible with the Fleet Orders script from acrh2. Sorry about that but all the few additional command slots are already used by other scripts
:arrow: Downloads: (third party distribution not allowed)


Enjoy :)

Oops sorry :)
In fact i've checked the command list a while ago when i've started this project, and those slots were free. I won't use lower numbers and I don't think it'll use more command slots than currently anyway :)

Btw you could check my board, the command slots i'm using for my other projects are listed there.

Cheers.

no need to say your sorry ...:)
its a work in progress (the commands are atm only being used in a text-file .. so no real problem)
that should also explain why nothing is in the sticky ..
(as it seems hardly any scripter touches the general/custom commands
made me hope I could just use them not having to worry about someone else using the same commands..
seems I was wrong there .. :roll: )

Hi Serial: Can I form more than one wing to defend or attack at the same time?

Absolutly.

Let's say you have 60 ships in your carrier, you can send 10 wings of 6 ships against 10 different targets. Each wing will return when the target is destroyed or when ships are too badly damaged. You can also use the order "dock all ships" to recall all your ships.

Sending multiple defense wings isn't necessary, the script will be more efficient if you use one big wing to defend the carrier instead of 2 smaller wings.

Cheers :)

I'll see if i can give to each ship a specific role in the next version. Something like this could be nice :

M5: antimissile
M4: bomber / missile ship
M3: general purpose fighter

I'll also allow the "defense.wing" to protect other ships than the carrier.

Script upgraded to 1.20. See the first two posts for a full changelog.

Basically this new version unlocks the (multi) sector patrol for fighter class ships. It also add a command to the carriers to set different battle tactics for your ships, including ship replacement, max amount of damages before retreat and missile usage.

Two shortcuts are also added to dock all ships and clean a sector when the player is flying a carrier.


@Puruco: i've not included your idea about anti-missile ships in my script yet, it'll probably be for the next version. Btw, the X3 version of the pirate guild is not yet finished, not ETA sorry.

Ok, no problem will wait. I,m using your mod but a question just pop up while I was reading the last upgrade: This script is to manage the figthers in your carrier, what about the other supporting ships of the carrier group, M2's, M6's and the TS's?

ACC is intended to become of full fleet management script for both battle and trade situations in the long run :)

Various commands will be added to M2, M6, TS, and fighter class ships. I've made public the roadmap for next versions of this script on my site. You should give it a look :)

Also does this script can work with figthers and support ships of different mod like the ones from Dadly's and M7 mods?
