[SCRIPT] Lure Spaceflies v1.06

Lure Spaceflies v1.06

This script makes manual capture of spaceflies in X3 a viable option to making money.

It gets the ship to attract spaceflies to it by releasing a small amount of nostrop or rastar oil. The flies will follow the ship and thus be easier find and capture.

Notes on use
- The sector must contain rocks or asteroids or else no spaceflies will be found.
- After releasing the oil then wait for the flies to reach you (better to be stationary while waiting)
- It can take several minutes for the flies to track down your ship.
- Don't release oil more often then once every 15 minutes, it would be a waste.
- The script command will only appear in the menu for the player ship.
- Each lure attempt will release one unit of nostrop or rastar oil.

Hey, the idea of using oil as "bait" is really great!
It's a shame that scripts can't alter object effects, it would be awesome if releasing the oil made your ship leave a glow trail for a little while.


Idea for future expansion: Each use has a small chance to spawn some Boron or Argon ships that try to protect the flies by attacking you. The X3 version of Greenpeace. Save the spaceflies!

now, i wonder if this is helpfull to get bonuses for tp missions too :o

just need a larger capacity tp than usual :D

i think i am going to have to mod a tp so that its got 1.5k cargo or something so i know i have enough room in it :D
About the name - i was lost for a name on the forum and looking round, then a Bob Hope film came on, and i thought "that will do nicely"

i was born and raised argumentative i dont mean to offend ...... sorry
