[Script] - Logain Industries Capital Ship Energy Cell Generator (CSecG) v2 12/09/2010

Logain Industries Capital Ship Energy Cell Generator (CSecG)

:arrow: Introduction:

Logain Industries are developing an Energy Cell generator for Capital class Ships (CSesG)

Logain Industries engineers calculated that 99% of the time Capital ships used less than 50% of their overall energy producing capabilities, the CSesG integrates with and monitors the ships Shields and uses any surplus to generate Energy Cells. The smart monitoring will place the CSesG module into passive mode when the ships energy is required for Shield regeneration.


:arrow: Current Version:
CSecGv2


:arrow: Technical Info:
Text Page: 9914
Command Slots:
COMMAND_TYPE_SPECIAL_55


:arrow: Download:
CSecGv2
via Google Code


Install of script files:
Use Plugin Manager by Cycrow Link to install the script .spk file Beta V1.30 (RC1) or greater.

Required script files:
Ware Manager by Cycrow Link


:arrow: Thanks
Big thanks to StormMagi for providing ftp access and hosting for my mods :)


Guide:

The CSecG Menu is accessed via the ship Special command Menu.
The command will only be available to Capital sized ships (TM and above) with a Energy Cell Generator equipped.

The amount of Energy Cells produced is based on the ships power generator, the time per cycle is based on the ships class.

There are two commands
Energy Cell Generator: On/Off
Energy Cell Cap: The amount of E-Cells the generator will produce.

The Generator will monitor shield levels and go inactive if the shields are recharging.

The script adds Energy Cell Generator as a new ware to Equipment Docks for each of the main races.

It would be good to have a non-intrusive way of keeping capital ships resupplied with ecells for jumping.

It would need a max figure to produce, so that a player can restrict how much of the cargo bay is used, especially on the player ship, where you want cargo space for collecting containers.

maybe even something simple like a max 20% of cargohold?
for most ships (non TL), that should be 1500 e-cells or so.. Could do less i suppose.
in the market for a new sig, willing to pay 1 billion credits for a proper sig...

An easy limit to use is the refueling amount for auto jumping. :D

Thats not enough if you have capital ships set to follow you or protect you.

You may be doing a series of rapid jumps and they need enough to be able to follow you.

Hi All,

The amount produced will be a player set limit as it can be tweaked to the players needs.

It will probably be after next week before I move this idea forward, I'm away on a course so won't be about :(

this will be quite useful for MPM....

is there a way to make the "energy ship" transfer automatically the cells on the "fab ship"?

p.s. I'd suggest to make this not work if the ship has MPM too... :roll: the fluff-stuff-machinery uses up the "surplus" energy required for this to work... just to dont' make self-powered fab-ships. :D

I see you point, but this wont be a mobile SPP type deal, the E-Cells will be generated a to slow a pace to support production. 8)

balancing between "support production" and "having enough cells for jumps" can be quite hard... :D if you place a restriction you can balance only the latter.

anyways how much cells/hour will produce this?

You have to turn on the AL Plugin under Gameplay settings.
