[SCRIPT] Xai Corporation Station Command Suite

Post by moggy2 » Sun, 26. Mar 06, 07:13

Script: Xai Corporation Station Command Suite
Download: http://www.xai-corp.net/project/XaiCorp-STCOM
Version: 1.0
Description:
A set of commands to help manage stations.
----
Bug tracking | Feature Requests

This includes a framework for installing station software upgrades, the ''Station Commands Suite'' from Xai Corporation provides a mechanism for station commands to be bound to software upgrades which are required to be purchased. The framework also allows for the addition of new commands and software upgrades form new scripts without needing to update the core scripts.

To install software upgrades to a station, run the command ''Install Station software''. This will send a message to you with a list of all the available software along with their descriptions and price. You can then chose the software to install

Software included with this script pack are the ''Report Inbound ships'' software and the ''Price Manager'' software. More software can be added via extra script packs that will be released later.

Report Inbound Ships:
Once installed at a station there will be an extra command available ''Report Inbound ships''. Running this command will scan all the sectors within 9 jumps of the station for ships heading for the factory. It will then send the list of ships to you in a report which also lists whether they're bringing supplies or looking to buy your product. Some ships will even allow you to see how much they're looking to buy.

Price Manager:
This software upgrade provides 2 new commands to dynamically set the prices at the station. Each command operates on one ware stocked by the station. You can run multiple copies of the commands to manage the prices of multiple wares.

The ''Match Local Price'' command will scan nearby sectors, upto a jump range you specify, looking for the best competing price. It will then set the price at your station to match this. You can also specify an amount by which to beat the best local price for, so guaranteeing you have the most attractive price for freetraders.

The ''Variable Price Manager'' sets the price to between an upper and lower limit, that you specify, based on the amount of ware currently in stock.

Other possible ideas for scripts
#Ship Branding
#Production Logging
#Stock Level Monitor
#Sell Station
#Self Destruct
#Toggle Production On/Off

Me thinks someone is playing with the webserver for Xai-Corp as trying to visit the website gives a "misconfigured" error page.

You're missing the 447232.xml file in the archive, so running the 'report incoming ships' just returns a bunch of readtext7232-#### instead of usefull info.
Why not make it into a .spk package using Cycrows installer?

Also, can someone fix the XaiCorp website so we can actually access it?

Hello

After several hours of test i have noticed that for a complex at least, and maybe stations too the Variable price manager is really more usefull than the Match local price :

With match local price and more that 5 jumps you will often have a so low price and profit that selling is not a good idea.

On the other hand, with variable price manager i am sure to sell at a price that i know good for me with the limit and also if my price is too hight stocks will increase and then price will go down, allowing to sell the stock quickly.

I have not tried yet to put for a same product the price manager + match local price, is this intended to be done ?

#Toggle Production On/Off

Is it possible to turn a factory off?

Moggy, I noticed two problems here


Your first Command ( id 1163 ) to install software conflicts with LV's cheat package commend "A_LV_CHANGE_PRODUCTS"


Also your .spk version is missing two files

'plugin.Xai.st.reportInbound.cmd'
'plugin.Xai.st.reportInbound.chk'

The zip file has them, they're just missing on the spk package :cry:

are you using the spk or the zip? There may be a file missing somewhere.

Just looking at the setup at the moment. If you install all the scripts at the same time there's a chance that they won't finish installing on the first load. If you save the game and reload(or hit the reinit scripts button) it will finish the setup the second time round.
