Giving you a reason to go back to Terran Space since 2939

Description:

Tired of watching the Terran Economy grind to an inevitable and unavoidable halt? Sick of how long it takes to get anywhere in Terran Core space? Do you want to play as a Terran without wanting to trudge through the same lengthy plots over and over again? Do you want a real reason to go back to Earth?

This project rolls out several optional Plots, Mods, and Scripts offering renewed life to the X3TC/X3AP Terran Experience. Each can be installed separately or integrated as a whole to fix common complaints about the Sol System.

Plots Section: Below are the new plots for the TRP. Any additional plots that uses conversations.xml must be merged and core X3AP sectors must exist for complete compatibility.
___________________________________________________________________________

Arrow Operation Loose Ends v1.0 - X3AP Only - Required for TRP Compatibility. - Altered Vanilla Terran Plot for X3AP 2.5 - The plot rewards are slightly tweaked, and stalwart Terran Commanders gain clearance for a Top Secret USC event, Project Voluspa.

Mods / Scripts Section - Below are the optional Mods / Scripts for the TRP. Most use Cycrow's Plugin manager for installation, but be aware that Fake Patches can be tricky to configure.

Compatibility: Unless directly noted, the majority of these scripts should work with most X3TC / X3AP Mods. The known exception to this is XRM (Formerly SRM), as it incorporates many of the fixes applied by the TRP.
___________________________________________________________________________

Arrow ATF Shipyard (MD) - Adds the missing Terran Factories ( Vita Ki, Flavor Packs, C-Ration, Ice Mines, MAM Warhead, EMP Rifle, MAM Mine, Ghoul, and Spectre ) and new Terran Factories ( Sats, Lasertowers, Computers, Quantum Tubes, Shields ) to their respective shipyards. If playing X3TC, ATF ships are unlocked at The Moon Shipyard at ATF Earth Access. Factories are unlocked during normal plot progressions.

Note: Any MOD that touches Tfactories will be incompatible with this fake patch.

X3AP Only
X3TC Only
___________________________________________________________________________

Arrow Project Bifrost v1.1 - X3AP Only - Adds more TOAs and Jump Beacons to Terran Core Space, speeding up travel.

Backstory: The USC has decided to deploy more Jump Beacons in Terran Core space to facilitate rapid response to aggressor fleets and offering alternate trade lanes to merchants.


___________________________________________________________________________

Arrow ??? Terran Pirate Base v1.4 - X3AP Compatible - Creates a Terran Pirate Base that moves around randomly in the far reaches past the Oort Cloud, selling rare equipment and goods.

Backstory: Why do the Terrans tolerate illegal Commonwealth goods in their space? Who brokers such indifference over drugs, lethal hand weapons, and Wanton Nukes? Deep in what outer Sol system fringers call Dark Space, there are rumors that a mafia like corporate organization has built a secret base. There they barter Ice and other rare equipment, rumored to be next to non-existent in Core Terran Space.


___________________________________________________________________________

Arrow Terran MOB (Main Operating Base) v1.2 - X3AP Compatible - Adds a Terran Main Operating Base in the far reaches of the Oort Cloud, offering continual resupply every hour on the hour. Recent refits include a marine training ground.

Backstory: A recent security leak to has revealed the existence of a large ordnance and supply cache in the remote but secure ends of known Terran space.


___________________________________________________________________________

Arrow Terran Marines v1.6 - X3AP Compatible - Creates a Terran Marine Barracks near the Terran MOB that trains bona fide Terran Marines. HOO-RAH! Dock your ship at the Terran Marine barracks with 1M in your credit account, at least 20k Support Personnel available at the station, and a Scabbard full of Terran Marines will be transferred to your Command.

Backstory: After returning from Operation Eyepoke, Commander Okami of the ATF 4th Fleet's 'Rana's Raiders' solicited Major General Ishiyama for the training and deployment of Terran Marines. The barracks receives continual rotation of fresh meat every hour, on the hour.


___________________________________________________________________________

Arrow Project Sleipnir v1.0 - X3TC Only - Adds working Terran Jump gates from Pluto to Mercury once the Aldrin 2.0 plot is complete.

Backstory: Now that Terrans have completed the first working Terran Jump gate since the First Terraformer War, the USC has decided to build a corridor of additional gates from Pluto to Mercury in order to speed travel from one end of the Sol System to the other.


___________________________________________________________________________

Arrow Operation Loki v1.0 - X3TC Only - Tricks GoD into not deleting Terran Stations.

Backstory: USC High Command has decided to place a freeze on the Terran Free Market. With the addition of key Bio Fabs, the USC's war machine prepares for storm clouds on the horizon. Will it be enough to prevent the Second Terraformer War?

Is the pirate base compatible with the Pirate Guild 3? Just concerned that the code that appropriates pirate bases for the pirate guild.
Otherwise, looks very good. I'll be using almost all of these scripts.

The race owner for the Pirate Base is Terran. Im not sure how the script would interact with it otherwise. If you want to test it out and let me know of any issues, I'll look into changing the code if needed.

as long as your base is terran PG3 will ignore it completely
(and even if it was pirate it would probably still work fine).

edit: no problem Smile

TOA to Jump Gate Converter v1.1: Fixed a small issue with the Jupiter North Gate leading to the Saturn North Gate instead of the South one.

If you used v1.0, uninstall, install v1.1. Destruct the Mars <-> Earth pair of gates, and on the next reload the new gates will fix themselves. Uploading v1.1 when Google Code plays nice.

??? Terran Pirate Base v1.1 - Changed wait times to allow for more frequent station movement.

If you used v1.0, turn off the AL plugin, wait 15 minutes, and verify the station has been destroyed. Uninstall v1.0. Install v1.1.

Suggestions for other rare equipment available for purchase at the ??? Terran Pirate Base?

Any other general suggestions for other Terran improvements? Please bear in mind that some things are not changeable unless you Mod the game or break into MD files.

Going to try out that economy boost right away. Very Happy

I was wondering though if you could give a more detailed description of that economic stimulus and that pirate base.

Also, are you planning on adding more new Terran stuff? I love play Terran based games and am therefor very interested in all kinds of new Terran stuff. Very Happy
What you could do for example is add Terran factories that make shields, I've always found it strange that while the Terran try to be completely independant of the Commonwealth, they have no facilities that produce shields. There is basicly no way that their stations get new stocks of shields unless you go buy em yourself in the Commonwealth and stock them, and if you go buy them there, what is the point of stocking them at all. Very Happy
(I've 'fixed' this by adding some factories throughout the Sol System and alter their products by using cyrcrows cheat pack (as my scripting knowledge is as good as non excisting Rolling Eyes) I just picked a weapons factory and removed the weapon and replaced it with a shield, then they need energy, Terran MRE and ore, like their Commonwealth counterparts.)

Not going to use the jumpgate converter though, doesn't fit the lore. Smile

Lastly, nice work with the ATF shipyard, I use that script for ages now and the additions you added on the old version are very good.

eldyranx3, does your TOA->Jumpgate script replace the TOAs with Commonwealth Jumpgates or Terran Jumpgates? The Terran Gates make sense to use because Earth does have a demonstrated production capacity for brand new jumpgates.

@ GBscientist: As noted in the back story, surplus Commonwealth / Ancient's Gates replace the TOA's. I'm sure that the Terran Gate model is a special object, but how get them to work as the Terran one in Neptune will take some investigation.

@ Troubleshooter11: I'd love to add some Terran Shield Fabs, but unless I write a complex AL plugin, it'd have to mess with tstations file I believe, making it a Mod. But I agree, I felt they were conspicuously absent from the Terran Economy.

Edit: Unless you would be satisfied with just NPC (Non-buyable) shield fabs, that would be comparatively easy to script in.

@ Topcross: The Economic Stimulus readme packaged in the SPK gives a little more detail:

Code:
This script adds in (1) Protein Paste L, (1) Carbo Cake L, and (1) Water Purification Plant L NPC fabs to Neptune, Saturn, Mars, and Mercury. It also adds in (1) MRE L, (1) C-Ration L to Venus, (1) Ice Mine L to the Asteriod Belt, and (1) SSP L to Neptune.

Suggestions for additional NPC factories to place are always welcome.

As for the ??? Terran Pirate Base, it should relocate itself every 10-15 minutes, selling:

Spoiler
SOS, SSS, Cargo Bay Shielding, and all the non-Kha'ak Beam Weapons
Spoiler

Suggestions for more rare goods are always welcome.
