===========================================
Name: X3 Advanced Thruster Control
Version: V1.01 (BETA)
Author: Cycrow
Updated: 08/05/2006
===========================================
Arrow Requires EMP - SPK Download
Arrow Download : Mirror 1
Arrow Requires Script Manager to install
===========================================
My other scripts are available Here
===========================================

This script adds a new upgrade available to buy from boron equipment docks, The Advanced Thruster Control

1. Setting Hotkey

Before you can make use of the advanced thruster control, you need to set the hotkey, this is done in the controls menu under the interface tab.
set the key for "Thruster Override"

2. Thruster Control

To enable the thruster control, simply press the hotkey, press it again to deactivate it.
when activated it will cause your ship to carry on traveling in the same direction regardless of what direction your facing in.

This will allow you to turn the ship around to shoot whats behind you while still traveling away from them.

3. Uninstalling

When uninstalling from the Script Manager, you need to run the game after uninstalling so the unisntall scripts can run and remove everything
from the game. Afte

by using alot of maths Wink

it computes a straightline vector in the direction your traveling when you enabled it, then uses set position to move a distance along that vector each cycle, the distance is based on your current speed.
althou due to lack of accuracy in the script engine, flying a slow speeds might seem abit jerky, its the movement thats jerky, not the actual game Smile

I've just tested it out and it works great! . The only problem is that if you activate it and fire your weapons quickly, it switches back to conventional engines.

Great script though

i never actaully tryed it when firing, but thats a failsafe.
basically, when you try to move a position, the game engine might find something blocking it and try to move it somewhere else, so the failsafe wil ldetect this and turn off the thruster control.

if its happening with weapons its prolly found the bullets and trying to move it somewhere elsei think i might have a fix for that thou

sorry being stupid Embarassed ,

it works fine,
on activation betty says "command accepted"
when disabling betty says "conventional engine working" Sceptic
shouldn't this be "not working" or "disabled" or something Confused

well, when you disable it, it means its switches back to conventional engine, so the conventional engine is now working again
