[Discussion] X3TC+AP Bonus Package

Post by jlehtone » Tue, 27. Apr 10, 15:27

This is the place for generic discussion, feedback, and questions about the X3TC Bonus Package.

Each script naturally has its own dedicated thread. See the Bonuspack index.


Edit: Version 4.1.01 has been released 2010-06-02.

Thank you for the update and bonus pack, I appreciate all the hard work that's been put into them, hired developers and community alike. Congratulations!
And many thanks for bundling those scripts in one package, especially the CLS ones continue to prove very useful.

Any chance to enrich the Bonus Pack in the future? I'd very much like to see the Galactic News System or something like that, a script which creates dynamic news. Without an impression that some type of communication is going on between NPCs, the X Universe remains less than it could be. For now, those "Media" ships are there for colouring the landscape only.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against Principalities, against Powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places

For inclusion in bonus packs, the scripts have to be submitted by their authors so you would do better to post suggestions in the script threads over in S&M. I'd have loved to see Cycrow's boarding hotkey included, but it has been updated with a lot of new features which I suspect may prevent it getting included, anyway :(

I find CAG remarkably useful. I used it on my first time with X3TC anyway. This time I'm playing vanilla so have been looking forward to this. Set things up a bit differently to how I normally play, so will probably have a use for CLS this time, as well :)

Dont get me wrong, having CAG's again really helps my current game, but I was hoping for more signed content than whats been included so far. CLS, CAG, and Turbo booster are all helpful, but its nothing new from X3R.

I know the old argument: Get out there and create some! Considering Ive only modified an existing script, which still has the same glitch despite three versions, I doubt anything I'd write would pass Egosoft Quality Standards anytime soon :roll:

I'd really like to see some of the stations fixed myself (Ion Fabs producing Tracking Mines, I'm looking at YOU).

The bonus pack should work with unsigned scripts, but for that you will need to check in the S&M thread. As to whether you need to uninstall any unsigned version before installing the signed version of the same script, I would think that you shouldn't need to, but it could possibly cause issues if the unsigned has some functionality that the signed doesn't.

Sorry - not much help. You may do better asking that in the S&M thread as well. Or the thread for the bonus pack version...

Yes - although you might need to tell the installer where the folder is.

I was hoping for more interesting scripts, like "race wars" or "sectors take over" or "galactic news"... :/

What? Are you saying STEAM doesn't automatically download the BP?

Nope. It's bonus material, not a game patch. You'll need to download it yourself (AIUI).

FYI, when I downloaded the Bonus Pack, it automatically located my steam X3TC installation.

Obviously, may differ for you guys! :D

Same thing happened with me. Doesn't matter, I checked and it works! :D I built a mosquito missile fab in commemoration of the event. Didn't get an achievement though :(

Ok, we have an issue. :shock: The auto-rename function of CAG and CLS is apparently not properly signed. Using that function turns on the ***Modified***.

I hope there will be a quick fix for that.
