This is a port of Friendly Pirates from X3R, with TycHouse's permission. What this does is set your relation and notoriety to friend with Pirates, then monitors combat. If you save a pirate from being killed by another race, or save a pirate base from attackers, you gain notoriety with pirates. Initially all pirate ships will be blue, and new ones created by the game engine will be quickly changed to friendly. They then become like any other race - that is, if you attack/kill them, you lose notoriety and can eventually make them enemies.

There was a slight problem with the original script in that sometimes if you were fighting a pirate, it would keep switching back to friendly. I'm pretty sure I fixed that, but let me know if you have any problems. Other than that, this is a straight port of the original scripts.

This script needs no manual running or configuration - simply install and start the game and all pirates will turn friendly.

Many thanks to TycHouse for the scripts, and for permission to port to X3TC! Enjoy!

-Grax

umm, doesn't that make "Defend This Station" and "Patrol This Sector" quests kinda stupid?

I think a more loose group of pirates, IE pirates don't care if you destroy em when they are out attacking, but if you start killing them in a sector with a pirate base, then you loose notoriety would be better

The ships in Station defense don't have the Pirate "I" tag. I think they're "Hostile Race" or whatever it was called in X3R

This is really great! Not only does it work as intended but it also fixes the broken flags (neutral/enemy) of the pirate faction so they correctly turn hostile when you have enough (-500) negative rep.

Huge, huge improvement, no more docile pirate patrols. Yarr!

In my old game I've been killing pirates left and right. If I install this, will it reset my standings to neutral or does that only happen if you start a new game? Smile

If you install it in a game where Pirates are all red to you, it will reset your reputation to neutral or friendly... I forget which. But they'll all be blue to you, even if you've been killing them non-stop for weeks.

Does this script also change pirate lasertowers to neutral?

Two things. First, are the Yaki and Pirate seperate here? In my game I would like to be on good terms with the Pirate and kick Yaki butt. Smile

Secondly. Mission pirates and other pirates seems to be linked, at least in vanilla. Did you fix this? I have tried to stay neutral to the Pirates in vanilla but for each mission I do more and more pirates are turning red....

dunno is it caused by this mod.

Once awhile my setting toward pirate is somehow auto-adjust from Enemy to Friend. I found this happened when I noticed pirates are change from red to blue. I have to manually set it back, on the ship config level.

The global setting is ok, though.

Even with this script I have problems keeping the pirates angry, i even put them down to - 99999999 and still they turn blue in time. Even with my global set to pirates enemy they are still blue.

I think this mod created problems when doing missions for Pirates. I am not sure what enemies are supposed to spawn in Station Defense missions for them, but whenever I take one, after about 20 minutes the mission started just goes "Good Job" and gives me my reward, without any ships even appearing in the sector.

My hunch would be that this script is intercepting these spawned ships and trying to turn them friendly, somehow before they even spawn... and then the friendly status marks it as 'destroyed' to the mission and it ends. Anyway, something worth looking into. Thanks for the great script though, aligning with Pirates is a much needed feature if you ask me.

Yep, I think I'm having this issue as well. It was fine for a time, but now the pirates love me. Furthermore, killing pirates in Paranid territory (on a station defense mission) actually lost me a a notoriety rank with the Paranid (which was promptly returned due to completion of the mission), though that may be completely unrelated to the script.

Anybody who is getting pirates slowly turning blue, due you by any chance have either a bliss place or space fuel distillery running. as i believe that over time that increases pirates to friendly, (from what ive read in other threads)
