Now with MENUS. Thanks to LV's menu tutorial thread.
With the new menus there are a few new options. Also TS ships now can use Storehouse Light(tm) which includes only the Horde and Stock options.
Transfers all wares from the station to the ship every 20 seconds.
Transfers all wares that the station uses/sells from the ship to the station up to the maximum amount the station can hold, every 20 seconds.
Is the same as v0.01, it tries to keep half stock, see below for more details.
This is a completely new mode based on some observations and assumptions. I noticed the HQ seems the need about the same ratio of components to build every type of ship. And I am assuming this is true for all ships, not just the ones I have built.
This mode finds the limiting reactant of the ship parts wares, that is the ware you would run out of first if you kept building ships until you didn't have enough resources. Then it tries to store all resources that above the ratio needed for ship construction.
The ratio it uses is:
100 Energy Cells per
3 Teladianium per
1 Cloth Rimes per
2 Rastar Oil per
4 Ore per
3 Silicon Wafers per
1 Crystals per
1 Quantum Tubes per
2 Microchips per
1 Computer Components
So if your HQ had 10 Microchips but 10k of everything else it would store all the energy cells over 500, ore over 20, rastar oil over 10, ect.
This frees the space up for other stuff and helps make sure you have room to transfer more of the stuff your short on to the factory. To save CPU load this mode only loops every 5 in-game minutes.
HQ mode requires TWO TLs docked at the HQ and working together to function.
v0.02 Script pack Download:
I think HQ mode needs some kind of reporting feature to let you know what ware(s) your getting low on. I am not sure how to go about this, if you have any ideas on what to include or how to deliver this report please post your opinions. Also, any general feedback on HQ mode itself.
More customization based on Luckies scripts. Ware blacklist, max stock amounts, horde one ware and stock another, ect.

All you have to do is dock a TL at your equipment dock and start this script and your TL will attempt to maintain a 50% stock level for each ware. If the EQ dock has more then 50% of an item it will store the excess in its cargo hold, less and it will transfer items from its cargo hold to the EQ dock.
The command is available in the trade menu of your TL class ships.
This is an functional, but early release. Expect many more customization options once I figure out how to use these menus.
