Hide Licenses - License Secure Storage v1.03 - updated 2007-08-05

Post by B-O'F » Tue, 10. Apr 07, 18:57

License Secure Storage - by BOF

Update 2007-08-05
1.03 - Corrected an error when the player had no licenses
- changed messages

Update 2007-08-04
1.02 - command now only shows for playership - thanks to voxol

Update 2007-04-25
1.01 - added a rather vital script that I had forgotten to include. My apologies to all that were affected by this.

Initial release
2007-04-10

You know how it is - you have a police license so you can get the bounty when you kill a pirate, but now you need to deal with the pirates.. but they don't trust you, because you have a licence..

Description:
So how do you get rid of your licence? You can't just throw it away.
- Well you could attack a ship, gate or station belonging to the race - but you can get a big reputation hit.
- You could obtain an illegal substance and wait to get scanned, then drop the substance.

Not too bad if you only have one licence, but if you have them for ALL races - then you have to do this in sectors owned by each race... takes a lot of time, costs money for the 'substances' (Space Fuel, Space weed, Slaves, Spaceflies, SQUASH Mine) and the licence costs about 7580Cr each to replace. That's 37,900Cr for just all the licenses... not a small sum..

The licenses are carried around by you - so just put them away in a secure place (not your glove compartment).. I can supply a secure place - for a small fee of course.

Just install my License Secure Storage software - it is free - and you will be charged a small fee of 100Cr, when your license(s) is/are returned to you.

"Free software, and only 100Cr to return the license(s)" you say, "What's the catch?". No catch, just some simple maths.
If I charged you for the software, then you probably wouldn't buy it.
If I charged a large sum for storage, then you would only use it rarely.
With free software and only 100Cr charge when used, then you will use it without thinking of the cost - as will a few thousand other customers.. soon adds up in my bank account........ then there's the optional extras...

Use:

Only operates on playership.

Entries are not case sensitive, just shown in uppercase for clarity.

Just find the command - under Piracy, of course, as it is not strictly legal - and enter H to hide, L to list hidden or R to restore - all current licenses are hidden/ restored as requested.

The optional extras?.. for a little bit extra, I can supply a forged license..
Just enter F followed by the initial letter of the required forgery (Argon, Boron etc)... but only one forgery at a time.
So for Argon you type in FA (I do mean that you have to type in FA - not that you don't have to type in anything).
Ahh yes - the cost for this extra service.. how about 10,000 Cr per license.. Well it as effective as the real thing, and will stand up to scrutiny by any Police. If you can't dock to get one... there is no alternative.


Uses:-
slot - Piracy 44
page - 8896

Package consists of .spk and files in folders, all zipped together.
448896.xml - t file
setup.bof.hide.licenses - the setup file
bof.hide.licenses - the script
bof.hide.licenses.check - allow use only on playership

Available here, courtesy of Xai Corp
.zip includes .spk

To install:-
Using Script Installer--
- select .spk package

Do it yourself --
- copy from 'copy to t-files' to t folder
- copy from 'copy to scripts' to scripts folder

This is not a major script, just useful sometimes

Enjoy,

Boron - Ol Fh'art

Hi Vyruz,

Nice idea, but please don't spread it around, or I will never get rich.

I think you could charge alot more for a forged licence.

Easily 20,000Cr, prob more...

Then you would get rich!

Hi al-main,

I pitched the price fairly low, so that more people might use it - a thousand time 10,000 Cr is better than ten times 20,000 Cr....

It is easy to change - $forge.cost in line 50 is the negative amount - if you wish to pay me more (I don't mind that) ....

All part of the plan to make me a rich(er) man...

Hi Vyruz,

As long as you use my script, and don't go to your own station, I am happy - and richer...

You sounds more like a Teladi than a Boron :D

And the best thing, if I can't by an license cuz of low rep, I can buy it from you.

Thx

Btw, I'm a Boron-Hunter and sell them to the Split for Fishstick. :P :twisted:

Hi Vyruz,

Yes, I have Teladi blood - normally on my windscreen..

Boron-Hunters don't scare me, I have a very modified LX - at 3,600 m/s you will never catch me. Anyway, I am too old and boney - not enough meat for a Fishstick.

Hi Vyruz,

I don't remember claiming that I played fair... the speed is only a minor change - you should see the rest.. astro's don't normally withstand the collision....

Yes, I did that command list some time ago, and there are about 10 other scripts of mine around - mostly on the slightly dark side... much more interesting.... and profitable....

By the way, I mutate Vyruzes, have an idea for another script, using a mutated virus.....
