LOL, yeah I find time to play, but get 10 mins into the game when I discover something that annoys me and need to fix it before I can continue. The scripts I've released are only a cross-section of the ones I've written and use in my own game (none are in a releasable state just yet, though).

I saw a request for a script like this some time ago, figured someone else would have done it by now. It's damned annoying when you're looking for a ship and don't realise til minutes later when you look through your logbook and find that it was destroyed ages ago...

Lol, I'm the same way. I have so many modified scripts that I haven't posted here... Just yesterday I changed "Collect wares in sector..." to actually stop and notify me when all wares are collected. Egosoft actually messed up this script a tad... they loaded the entire script in the preload file (there isn't a "std" script for it). I always forget about my Storage ship and he wanders around a sector looking for wares until Pirates eventually find him.

Agreed, I spent 15 minutes the other day trying to figure out where "Trader 5" was. Thanks for this handy script! Downloading now.

Edit: On an unrelated note, did you know that your NPC Bailing script is listed as an AL Plugin in the community thread? Confused me for a minute...thought I missed an update, lol.

Yeah, it's a bit of an odd one to categorize. It's not an AL plugin per se, but it involves modifying the Artificial Life aspect of the game, so it seemed the most appropriate.

@ThisIsHarsh: I assume you are already aware of the potential text formatting trouble, and UniTraders solution to that?

Yeah I remember reading about that. This script doesn't write to the logbook though, only uses the new subtitle command, which uses the old-style colour fomatting.

Love this so far. Although i do run into 1 problem with it. With this and M.A.R.S. going, this is going off pretty much constantly telling me that my fighter drone was destroyed. Any way to get a check or option to disable for drones? Enable/Disable might be the best way to go to.

D'oh. Chalk another one up to the secondary signal bugs.

OK sorted this, disabled Fighter Drone warnings, and uploaded bugfix version: Update v1.0.2

Minor update. With satellite notification enabled, collecting satellites would give warning. Fixed this.

Bugfix v1.0.3.

Thanks

Message logs

Post by John McG » Fri, 12. Dec 08, 12:29

Several times I have lost a ship through collision with an asteroid etc, and have only found out several hours later when I have happened to check my ship's log.
Fortunately most times I can revert to a saved game, but is there any way of being notified as soon as this happens, or do I have to keep checking my log every few minutes?
Thanks.
