[AL Plugin][SCRIPT] Xenon Shipyard 1.01

Post by Jakesnake5 » Wed, 6. Dec 06, 08:34

Many of us who have played X2 know about sector X472, and the spawns from it's shipyard. Unfortunately, X3 removed this joy to the Universe.

Here, then, is an Artificial Life Plugin, Xenon Shipyard.

It creates a Xenon Shipyard, in sector X472. It is situated far enough back from the gates to prevent a traffic jam.

The reason for this plugin, was made possible by a user of another of my scripts, Yaki Stations. This script created a Yaki EQ Dock and Shipyard in a Yaki sector.

The user discovered, that the Yaki would spawn, by preference, at this shipyard. This means any of the Yaki Patrols, that you normally see away from Yaki sectors, would, if destroyed, respawn at the shipyard, then move to their patrol sectors.

This creates an interesting effect of the Paranid trying to kill them in the process.

Turns out, like the Yaki, the Xenon will, by preference, spawn at a Xenon Shipyard. And thus the plugin was born.

The AL is cyclic in nature. If the AL is turned on, it will spawn the Shipyard. If, while the AL is on, that Shipyard is destroyed, the plugin will eventually respawn a new one.

The side effect of this, is that any Xenon, in any Xenon sector (or even a patrol) that is destroyed (Stations not included), will respawn at the Shipyard, and attempt to head to their Home sector. This, though, only applies to Xenon defined in the Jobs.txt config, and not any scripted ship, like in Race Invasion, Xenon Migration, etc.

This, as those who played X2 know, can wreak havok with the sectors in between X472 and their destination. Especially, if it is a Cap ship that is heading Home. :twisted:

This AL is provided in Cycrow Script Installer format (.spk)

I remember the Js and Ks heading from 472 towards the Xenon sector above Getsu Fune :twisted:
Now that was funny. :D

I'll give it a try :)

Minor change. Nothing big.

I'll give this one a go. This and the Xenon migration could make for a volatile universe. :)


Now, someone needs to make something similar for the Khaak. Make them spawn into random sectors and start wreaking havoc.

@Profitgeier

Site was ok (could ftp in) but the web server seemed to be hosed.

They got it fixed.

Might be interesting to stage a second Xenon invasion.

Every Xenon sector has a shipyard that spawns an endless amount of ships that attack nearby sectors when a large enough invasion fleet has been built.

Once you take out the shipyard respawning in that sector will stop. Naturally once you attack a shipyard reinforcements from other Xenon sectors may jump in to defend it in in varying numbers. (Depending on how many ships other Xenon sectors have to spare in addition to their permanent defenses.)

However a Xenon TL (shouldn't be too difficult to mod using the K and J as reference) may bring in a new shipyard.

When all shipyards have been detroyed you can congratulate yourself for saving the X-universe from the Xenon.


Something like that might be fun to play, but only after you have enough money to buy destroyers on a whim.

Maybe so, but that'd be for some, more 'Creative' individual to script. I just do small thing within my ability to mangle. :D

Yeah good work used with Migration and XTM

Slowly expanding their empire....

Question why does the SY have Xenon Ships avaliable to buy? Can you buy them?

Oh and that SY in every Xenon sector could be a map so you start with a Destroyer of your choice use that to take the SY's out with. :twisted:

Well, it wouldn't be a TRUE shipyard if it didn't have the requisite ships in it's queue, would it? :D
