Have you had any luck with a LU compatible version ?
even if it's missing some functionality.

It is working with LU, though not all functions are working correctly and software is missing instead it gives {Unused} item in ED. There could be something else too, I didn't test it all thoroughly.

Sorry to hear you're having issues. The 'Field of View' is the Mobile Pirate Warehouse, it is not given to the Player, but is one of the 'Independant' races.

Is one of the other mods you use playing around with the default races?
Also having the bug with getting ownership of the MPW; seems to be a conflict with Improved Races 2.0. Soon as the MPW spawns it attacks a Pirate ship in Loomanckstrat & I start getting spammed with Betty's 'one of my ships being attacked' notices & gives me full control.

I tried dropping back to 4.07 & keeping the MPW in null, but soon as i go to 4.11 it spawns.

Debris

Post by firefightervf06 » Wed, 10. Aug 16, 12:14

Hi, so I've been using this script for a couple weeks along with the NPC Bailing one. I love it, it's added so much to the game and I'm just now experimenting with the MRS and MPW-haven't used them yet.

My questions are this: Is there a way to search for debris fields or best sector for debris? Secondly: When I use the "best area for salvage" it comes up with a cardinal's domain. I go there and flew all the over the freaking place and found 3 ships. What is it detecting that I'm not seeing?

Thanks so much, hopefully someone still reads this that can help me.

Best area also includes all of the sectors surrounding Cardinal's Domain, so while there may be only 3 or 4 ships in that sector, you also have to check the surrounding areas.

Don't know about the debris fields, as I don't really care about them so I never looked for them.

Hi firefightervf06,

Unfortunately, Debris fields do not show up as something detectable by the script engine.

There is a list of the sectors with debris in the SCS manual though.

The 'best sector' is based on sectors where you have a presence (factory, ship or satellite), it's probably not the best in the game, but best you have sensor data for.

Use the MPW it has a 'Salvage Area' command that will salvage up to 13 sectors simultaneously and once you get to 100% trustworthy, you can use it remotely!

You're welcome.

Sorry for the delay, the forum keeps stopping telling me when there's new messages on my thread!

For me It breaks OCV progression (which is one of the main reason for LU...). OCV is still spawning its ships and producing wares but sitting idle in its sector forever.
[s]And now I have some problems with uninstalling it from existing save... after deleting all files of the script game constantly reopen some strange menus with readtexts. [/s] NWM, found an uninstall option in the menu.
Immediatly after pressing uninstall I got message about OCV invasion.

Hi mcaule,

If you want to uninstall SCS scripts, there is an option in one of the menus to do that.

If you select that option, it should also remove all the SCS wares from docks and return money for any SCS Salvage software you bought.

If you don't delete the SCS scripts (after you remove it), it will get added back in the next time you start the game.

Anyone had any luck adapting this to litcube's universe? I find it very hard to do a game without this mod :( :)
If it ain't broken, fix it anyway

Hi LordSekmeth,

I don't get a lot of time to work on these scripts now, but if you let me know the biggest problem you have with LU, I will see if I can fix or write a workaround for it.

Hi cyfagy,

The Smuggler's Hold was shelved (maybe permanently) as the glitch I was exploiting with the 'null' wares proved to be too problematic (the game engine didn't always handle them correctly). I may be able to re-write it using a different method though, much like the inventory, but it wouldn't be realistic in terms of cargo capacity...

All the Inventory commands should work, but they won't be available unless the ship you are in has something in the inventory.

You need to strip a docked ship down for it's components to be stored in the inventory of the carrier, that inventory can then be used to equip other ships that dock.
