[SCR] Collect Wares MK2 (7 Sept 2011)

Post by arcana75 » Sat, 6. Jun 09, 09:54

Simple mod of the Collect Wares ... command to make ur ships dock at either homebase or the nearest station when either there are no wares left or the ship's hold is full. This works great especially hostile sectors: park ur TM in a neighbouring sector and send ur ships to collect.

It overrides the default Collect Wares ... command but if the ship is already running the command then just set it to NONE and/or re-run it.

As the new commands make use of some vanilla script behaviour, in the event the collecting ship decides to return to homebase and homebase is not in-sector and the collecting ship has enough e-cells, a jumpdrive and the Autojump setting configured, in all likelihood it'll jump to where the homebase is.

I'd written something similar myself and was about to upload it :)

Does your script terminate when they dock as the one i was tweaking drops off wares at station/ship (homebase) and then starts collecting again, it also jumps the ship forward and backwards if the sectors are different, I'm only asking as if they do pretty much the same you'll save me packing it and uploading it when i get round to it as there's no point re-inventing the wheel and i don't want to urinate on your bonfire.

The main reason i'd done this is the stock collect wares script waits too long between pickups so i re-wrote the collection/pickup part and i was playing with the idea of beaming in <3k if it had my freight transporter upgrade installed to stop ships IS going round in circles.

Hi LV as usual ur script is a super-powerup of the default script!

Mine's a mere lipstick application :oops:

So no, my version only does the default collection then docks at homebase or nearest station when either full or no wares to collect and then return to none status. In fact if u look at the script I only added 4 lines of code to the original (and a few breaks).

I got tired of losing ships in pirate sectors after they idled too long collecting wares so just patched it as necessary. It works perfectly for my TM with 4 collectors: jump in, launch, collect, dock, jump out.

there's no need to :oops:

as you say mines been imperialised and written primarily for myself, it may well be that the normal user prefers your method to crack the nut instead of the imperial sledgehammer I tend to use :)

I want your script LV, I have been looking for a script to do something like that and yours is close enough!

What I'm REALLY looking for is a script that let's me send any ship out after I select a ware and and amount and he will scour the universe looking for it (mainly for low stock and hard to find items), buy it, and return to either where he started or home base.

So my question is, is there already a script to do that or is your script the closest?

Manual Trade Extension lets you define a list of wares to buy and select from 'any price', 'less than average' or 'less than equal average', will continuously buy the ware wherever it is found and optionally dump at it's homebase.

Just wanted to say that I really like this script, but my ships don't seem to be jumping to get back to their home station. I have JD, e-cells, autojump turned on, etc., and the ships definitely jump if I manually tell them to return home, just not when done collecting.

Still a huge improvement over vanilla collection script though, thanks for sharing. :D

@arcana75

I don't know if you still up with this script, but if you are, I have the same problem with cwc : "...I have JD, e-cells, autojump turned on, etc., and the ships definitely jump if I manually tell them to return home, just not when done collecting. "

I have lost ships trying to go back to their base flying through hostile sesctor. :(
