[SCRIPT] Anarkis Defense System - v2.65.1 - [2010-08-13]

Post by Serial Kicked » Thu, 14. May 09, 17:43


==================
Anarkis Defense System
==================


:arrow: Improved Carrier Handling
  • The script adds various commands for the M7, M1, TM and TL class ships to manage docked ships. You can easily rename, assign homebase to, and setup your docked fighters in a few clicks. You can also send offensive and defensive wings, clear a sector, or dock all your ships at once. Moreover, you can have fully automated carriers for your patrols, fighters will be repaired by mechanics, wings will be sent against foes automatically and warnings will be sent to the player when the carrier is in danger.

    Your carrier needs the "Carrier Command Software" installed for ADS to be enabled. Fighters will dock faster if they have a transporter device.

    This script is complementary to the M.A.R.S. (Motion Analysis Relay System) turret and drone script. Use both ADS:AutoCarrier and MARS:auto-collect-loot commands in a Xenon sector to see what I mean. ADS also allows to setup docked ships turrets to MARS.
:arrow: Station Orders

    Moreover, player owned Trading Stations, PHQ, Equipement Docks and Military Outposts now have a real use as you can enable ADS on them to protect your sector from any enemy activity.
:arrow: ADS Manager
  • Image Image
    To manage your fleet the ADS Manager menu has been added. It allows you to manage all your military fleet and docks: you can toggle ADS Automated Mode on/off, give direct orders, and monitor your sectors. Moreover, this is a dynamic menu, data are refreshed in real-time, so you can monitor your carrier list for alerts while using SETA.

    If you are targeting one of your carrier or dock, then you'll get a menu to give orders to this object, otherwise you'll get a list of your compatible carriers and dock to choose from.

    To access the ADS Manager, you'll have to use an hotkey you can set in the Controls, around the end of the interface page.
:arrow: Defense Grid
  • ImageImage

    The Defense Grid system will monitor every sector the player has a factory in for enemies. ADS Compatible stations will still send squadrons to defend their own sectors, but in addition, ships you have linked to the grid will jump to defend endangered sectors.

    Ships linked to the defense grid will continue to do their business as usual when there’s no alert. If a sector is under attack, those located in a 6 jump radius will jump in to deal with the threat, jump back and resume previous order/patrol. If you have a M2 patrolling in Argon Prime and an alert is occurring in Ore Belt, it will jump to Ore Belt, kill the enemies, jump back to Argon Prime and resume patrol.

    Energy cells will be directly bought from player’s money account and beamed to the ships at increased cost (x2). Any player owned big ship can be linked to the Grid, this includes M6, M7, M2, M1, and TL ships.
:arrow: Main Features
  • Include much needed carrier commands like : dock all, clear sector, send wing to defend/attack
  • Automated Carrier command to be added to your patroling carriers
  • Sector Defense command to be used on docks with a bunch of docked fighters to defend your sectors
  • Those commands are highly effective against any foe and are 100% automated
  • Very easy to setup, you can even copy settings from a carrier to others in a few seconds
  • Apply homebase, turret, jump, missile, ..., settings on all the docked ships at once
  • Quick keyboard shortcuts for your personnal carrier
  • Train your Marines in your M1 and Stations
  • You can hire mechanics to repair your docked ships
  • Ships use the transporter device to teleport into the carrier
  • A warning message (audio or text) is display when a carrier is in danger
  • Fast & Easy buying and selling of wares from/to the carrier
:arrow: Download and Links
:arrow: Compatibility
  • For those who are wondering, this script is compatible with CODEA, as long as you don't use both on the same carrier! Apart from that, it should be compatible with anything that doesn't use the same command slots as ADS.

    ADS has been designed to work well with the M.A.R.S. script (from Gazz)

Hi Serial.

I finished the translation (yeah, i can be fast... :D )

Only one word left. I need the context.

Code: Select all

 <t id="228">Verbose</t>
Where do you use that word? 1:1 translation doesnt make sense here. :D

Not really. In german verbose means "speak with many words" and such things.

Maybe its the setting to get spoken messages/warnings but i dont know for sure. Could be for "long messages" too. :)

Yeah, I would assume it meant to get vocal confrimation on commands.


Kinda like "Verbose ship computer" in the audio settings. No, and Betty doesn't give you the life story on everything you target/select. :)

That's exactly what verbose means in English. Long-winded, wordy, what have you. Verbal vocal and voice don't mean the same thing as verbose at all.

During the translation i found a minor text-bug.

If i transfer wares from the carrier to the ships it writes "xxx unloaded from yyy" in the report.

Code: Select all

 <t id="542">\033W%s %s\033X transfered to \033Y%s\033X</t>
 <t id="542">\033W%s %s\033X unloaded from \033Y%s\033X</t>
I think the second id should be 543 and in the script for the ship to carrier transfer you have to change the id to 543 too. Have that changed already and it works for me now. ;)

@MutantDwarf:
I have found that entry in the game now. I think "Messages" or "Advices" would be a better description.
