After a major overhaul, the scripts have now been renamed the Salvage Command Suite and feature over 74 commands for salvaging ships, rocks, cargo and debris and selling it off. Many of the commands are configurable through the 36+ configuration options.
These scripts will detect any crates, unclaimed ships or astronauts in the X-Universe (in sectors where you have a ship, station or satellite) and (if they are in the current sector) automatically target them for you. You can also receive alerts when anything especially valuable is found via the SCS Newsletter!
You can call in the Goner Repair ship to repair a ship or number of ships or even purchase your own Mobile Repair Ship from the new Goner Shipyard and there are several commands for stripping and selling ships or for selling any unwanted cargo you might obtain from salvaged ships.
The script package also has a 31 page manual you can download separately that gives full details of all the commands and their functions as well as many other useful bits of information.
Once the script is installed and activated, there will be a new item available at most equipment docks called 'Salvage Command Software', installing this will add a new Salvage Command Menu to your ships onboard computer. These are most of the commands available as of V4.04:

The 'Detect Crates' command will run continuously once activated and alert you to any crates or ships when you enter a sector. You can deactivate this command manually, or the command will be automatically deactivated if you switch to a ship that does not have the Salvage Command Software installed. Leaving your ship temporarily (space-walking) will not deactivate the command unless you order your ship to do something else.
Additionally, every 6 hours (configurable), a new crate and/or random ship will (maybe) be created (see the manual for the percentages of having a ship created).
Please note: Some of the non-English language files may have a few text strings in the English that have not yet been translated, so if you are running the scripts in a language other than English you may occasionally encounter some English text. This will be fixed as soon as possible and updated text files will be posted.
As of V4.00, the Stealth Satellites mod is incorporated into the main SCS scripts, however, because it overwrites some of the in-game scripts it could (unlikely, but possibly) lead to a conflict if you are already running another script that modifies the same files. If you believe you may have a conflict (or discovered a problem), pleaes post on this thread.
You can download the scripts, the manual or both combined (normal or zipped) from here.
The latest (stable) beta version is V4.11 which is available for download here (2.06Mb). It is in .zip file format only at the minute but the release version will be .spk as well. This version includes all interim updates since the last released version (V4.07).
As usual, a list of fixes in detailed in the included manual.
If you find any errors, bugs or something you consider 'strange' behaviour, you can post a message in this thread, PM me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll check it out and fix it (if necessary) as soon as possible.
