[SCR]Asteroid Creator TC (28.11.2008)

Post by fud » Fri, 28. Nov 08, 17:41

I made this script for Reunion and finally got around to getting it switched for TC.

Simple script, it creates an asteroid of your choosing (ore, silicon, nividium, ice) of a yield of your choice (I've made rocks with 500 yield and saw no adverse effect, but, it will eat a TON of ecells to mine).

The catch?

It will cost between 200000 and 230000 cr per 1 yield, so it's not cheap.

Thanks to Grax for the assistance on the menu (I fear change).

Cheater :wink: erm I would love something like this that either made it possible to steal roids from one sector and place them in another?

Or using your idea but put limit on how long roid will last say after 12 game hours the roid + attached station goes BOOM?

When a 100 yield asteroid costs you 20M+, I don't think it's a "cheat". :)

That said, I may pull it and double the prices.

I suppose it *could* work like that. But I'm running low on time.

Example:

Scan a rock, you want it, more than anything. You pay to have it "relocated" to a sector of your choice.


Well, I guess this is about the same thing, except you don't have to scan anything. You're basically hiring the services of someone else to find/scan/relocate it for you, for a hefty fee.

Hey fud, :)

I'm still running your Réunion-version on my old rig. My rig is unfortunatly to old for TC to run smooth but I'm happy to have that script again, when i'll have finally a new one. :) Thank you a lot for it.


@TSM, :)

maybe it is a cheat, maybe not. For me, I raised the prize in the Réunionversion up to 1.0 - 1.3 million each yield - I feel better with it, will do here the same. The point is, creating an asteroid at a certain place saves me nerves, carrying several rocks together for a complex annoyes me. So better spawn one single big rock in a relative calm and empty sector at a place I chose is much better for my likings and it also saves me FPS I need when having there the complex. A big complex in Orebelt isn't fun on my old rig, I tell you^^


Merci for the script, I will need it again, when updating my machine. Merci beaucoup :)

You mean like a cheat?

This can create single asteroids, or a field:

BTW I used this kind of script in Reunion for another use ... as it provides a wonderful way to get rid of a strong opponent :

spawn a 0-yield asteroid at the exact location of a Khaak Cruiser (or any other ship) and you'll be able to take your breath :D

If you have never seen a shooting 'roid, it's time to have a look ;)

nice. and i don't think of this as a cheat. Just imagine yourself paying someone to tow a large 'roid in from somewhere. Fuel, insurance, danger pay....it all adds up.

The download link is broken.. I get a page load error
If you got a monopoly on an operating system, and you make tons of money by supporting it, why fix it?

I always enjoyed this script in reunion. You have to pay a lot for the asteroid, so it hardly feels like cheating. However, as the person above said, the link doesnt seem to be working properly. Any help would be great!

Think it was because I wasn't right clicking "and saving target as"...

Works fine now!

How does it work though, is it a hot key or what?
