[SCRIPT] Taxi Drivers Guild V1.10 : Update 10/03/2007

Post by Cycrow » Sat, 13. May 06, 06:37

===========================================
Name: X3 Taxi Drivers Guild
Version: V1.10
Author: Cycrow
Updated: 10/03/2007
===========================================
:arrow: Requires EMP - SPK Download
:arrow: Requires Script Manager to install
:arrow: Download: Main Webpage
===========================================
My other scripts are available Here
===========================================

V1.02
* Fixed readtext error in joyride mission
V1.01
* Adjusted expire time of missions
* Fixed joy riding mission.

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

This script allows you to join the Taxi Drivers guild, so you can turn your ship into a taxi service, transporting passengers around the universe.
There will be 2 upgrades added for your ships, Basic and Luxury Cabin Space.
The Cabin space is used to transport passengers, each passenger will require a certain amount of cabin space to be transported.
Luxury cabin space is more expensive but you will be paid more for transporting passengers that require luxury.
Luxury cabin space can also be used as basic cabin space, so if a mission requires more basic cabin space than you have, they can take up some of the luxury
space as well.

1. The Taxi Drivers Guild

To join the merchants guild, you will need to apply for the membership from the BBS in the Taxi Drivers Guild Stations
There is a one time fee to join the guild.
Once joined, you will get access to cabin space upgrades avaialble from the Guild Stations as well as missions to transport passengers.

Within the guild you will have a rank, you can view this rank buy going to the View Guild Status option in your ships additional command slots.

2. Taxi Drivers Guild Stations.

A few stations will be built by the taxi drivers guild around the universe where you can buy the cabin space upgrades, these are only available to those who
have joined the guild.
The station will have higher priority for taxi missions on the BBS, and is the only place you can join the guild.

When a new shipyard is built, there will be a BBS news article broadcast where the new station is built, so check the BBS for these ;)

3. Missions.

Basic Transport Mission:
Transport passengers from one station to another within a set time, some missions will require a certain ship class, the main one being TP class ships.
others will accept any ship. There must be enough cabin space in your ship to take on the mission, Luxury passengers will pay more but require the more
expensive luxury cabin space.

Passengers like to see the universe around so using the jumpdrive is not allowed, it will be removed from your ship for the duration of the mission, you
can also not change ships.

Pick up and Transport Mission:
Simlar to the basic transport mission, but you must first pickup the passengers from another station and transport them to thier destination.

Jumpdrives will be removed once you pickup the passengers, so you can jump to the pick up station but not use it for the rest of the mission.

Station Transport Tour:
Transport passengers between a few stations, when docking at the next station, you will be told which station to goto next and how long you have to get
there. Like the other missions, you will require enough cabin space to hold the passengers.

Jumpdrives are also not allowed on this mission.

Joy Riding:
Some passengers just like to ride aboard starships and will pay for a joyride, for this mission, you can just go about your normal routine with the passengers
on board. Eventually they will decide they have had enough and the mission will end, you will get paid based on how much the passengers enjoyed the trip.
This is not likt the tour of life missions as theres no set time limit and the price is based on more than just the number of sectors. The price is a
balance between number of sectors, time spent in each sector, number of stations visited etc. Jumpdrive is allowed to be used on this mission.

you can have more than one passenger on board at anyone time, so you can fill your cabins to maximise your profits.

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

Future:

* Adding more types of missions
* More danagerous missions, ie transport missions could have a chance of attacking
* Adding improved "tour of life" mission
* Adding bonuses to Joy Riding mission, battles, hostile sectors, spaceflys, etc

Great idea Cycrow, your on a scripting spree at the moment :thumb_up: .

One question though, do your other scripts reserve the wares in the game for this script, since I was checking my game resources yesterday in the script manager, and I saw 2 wares, one called Basic Cabin space, and one called Luxury Cabin space. I didn't know what they were then, and now this has appeared. Very strange :P

no you cant, as it uses a different system.

but theres also not much point, as most of the time your only transporting a few passengers at a time, and you will get alot less money selling them off as slaves.

i had add it later, but for now you cant

Do you get the compulsory mirror hanging cd with tassels too ?

Solution if passengers are sick inside cabin ?

well, the BBS will only appear within range, so if they are created the other end the universe, you will have to get closer.

the Stations could be around 40km from the center.
