[ English Topic | French Topic ]



Arrow Plugin Description
    This AL Plugin will make the Yaki smarter and stronger.

    It will spawn a configurable amount of Yaki motherships (TL or M1) equiped with a jumpdrive and filled with Yaki Fighters. Each carrier will run a script that allows it to do various things as sending a squadron to attack a factory, a TS, a TL, or a defense ship. AI of those carriers has been increased so they can defend themselves when attacked and flee when in real danger. They will also repair, rearm and refuel at any pirate base when needed. Destroyed carriers will of course respawn after a random while.

    Each Yaki mother-ship will focus on two different enemy factions.

    The plugin also allows you to communicate with Yaki ships and Mobile Base using the ECS library. Helping yaki ships will give you money and good reputation with this faction. The player is also able to join the Yaki Guild by contacting Yaki Mobiles Bases via ECS, if his reputation is high enough and have the required credits, unlocking missions and various additional features.


Arrow Main Features
  • Take advantage of new X3:TC Yaki M1 and TL ships
  • Ability for the player to befriend the yaki faction or to hunt them down
  • Can spawn Yaki Equipment Docks
  • Yaki Mother-ships attacking enemy sectors and rearming at the pirate bases
  • Improved carrier artificial intelligence
  • Fully compatible with custom ships and maps
  • The player gain additional money for the destruction of the Yaki Armada's assets
  • Menu to setup the YA plugin the way you want
  • Takes advantage of the Anarkis Defense System for improved carrier AI


Arrow Changes from X3R to X3TC
    The plugin won't include under cover yaki ships as it's a pain in the ass to implement properly. This first version lacks ECS related interactions with YA ships. However it will use the "subtitle" commands to keep you posted about next jump coordinates and other vital information.

    The infamous "Kingdom End Mayhem" bug should be fixed.

    Some interactions between PG and YA will be added. Basically those interactions are: peace/war treaty between YA and PG - ask info about YA/PG to PG/YA ships - possible PG mission to take out a YA mothership - possible YA mission to subdue a PG mob boss or station.


Arrow Download
This is a Beta version, many features aren't included yet and minor bugs are still here. But all in all, the plugin is fully functional. Anyway you can easily totally disable it the second you want.


Arrow Optional Downloads
  • Pirate Starts (written by TEKing66) - Gamestarts working great with my plugins

Well, YA development is going fine. The first test-release should be available this weekend or during the next week.
More data are available here.

This said, like in the X3:R release, Yaki motherships will have unique names like:

Dominator - Skull HQ - Black Dragon - Stormbringer - Abomination - Ravager - Blood Moon - Excellence - Warmonger - Black Hole - Dark Moon - Dark Star - Dreadnought - Ghost Ship - Black Maria - Inferno - Exodus - Nexus - Bloody Mary - Armageddon - Requiem - Avalon - Leviathan - Behemoth

Please contribute. As long as your ship name looks "bad ass" enough it will probably be accepted. But, please do not write 250 posts with 1 name, post one answer with 250 names instead Wink

Wow, at last! Wink

I suppose this will be as third-party-script friendly as PG?

Clan's Horn, Clan's Circle, Reaper, Samarkand, Tamerlan, Blue Wolf, these are a few ideas, some related to the Mongol tribes, as I see them a bit Yakiish

Thanks for the suggestions, i will update my list.

Well, YA will be mod-friendly and will be able to use whatever ship, weaponry and map you can throw at it. As a related note, the DDRS mod has a nice selection of Yaki ships and some of them have been designed for YA.

It should be compatible with all major scripts available. The only exception will probably be "Improved Races". I can't remember right now if this script handle the Yakis or not, but if it's the case, they won't be compatible. And as the author is not here anymore to correct his script like he did for PG, nothing much can be done about it (apart from altering IR code).

By the way the 'Mongol Horde' theme fit YA background perfectly, good idea. For now i'll keep all names, but if i gather enough mongol related names i will switch to it completely.

I have been using and following your scripts for some time now. I am interested in seeing if YA includes the fixes for ACC use in bases for sector defense. I remember reading in your postings that all work on Anarkis Defense was on suspend while you finished YA as you would most likley be making it a core feature. However, I do not see that in the features listed in the first post.
