[SCR] Memia AutoScan Freight (V1.11 - 02/07/2013)

Post by memia » Sat, 7. Aug 10, 01:38

Memia AutoScan Freight
An AL Plugin for Terran Conflict and Albion Prelude that automatically scans freight in all ships within range.

Background
Tired of having to manually click that "Scan" button every time you want to scan a ship for freight? Well I am, hence the script :)

How to Use
Ensure you have a Frieght Scanner installed into your ship and that the plugin is turned on (see Installation below).
Simply pass within the range of the scanner (default 4km) and the ship will be automatically scanned on your behalf.

Note, if you are in a system where scanning is illegal then the scanner will not scan anything.
The plugin only works on the Player's current ship.

It works during freight scanning missions for law enforcement against illegal wares as well as pirate missions to scan for legal wares to plunder.

Installation
To use, simply install the SPK and then ensure the plugin is switched on in the Artificial Life plugin section (Gameplay -> Artificial Life Settings -> Memia AutoScan Freight).

Download
Download the SPK from here:

I still have the script if anyone wants it.

But I'm having issues with the Goner Sector.
Even though scanning in there is illegal it still seems to be scanning and I'm losing Reputation.

I tried to disable it under the AL Settings but it didn't work.

I think this is a must script, and I hate having to disable it.

Will this require permission to put up? I'd love to get this script myself.

Hi All,
Apologies that the download links went offline. My old site got taken down by a DoS attack on the server it was hosted by.

I've got a new site online and have updated the original download links.

The new site is available at http://www.memiasx.com.

I would appreciate it if other links to my downloads are now removed (although I totally understand why people provided them).

Thanks,
M

It seems the script auto-scan freight in goner sectors (where it's illegal).
It may be a conflict with XRM; I can't remember if the argon police license allow to scan freight in goner sectors in vanilla.

Edit:
Even if turned off it still scans freight.

I haven't checked the reason why it scans even while turned off, but I found the reason why it scans goner's.

The file mermia.asf.xml

if $race == stuff OR $race == [Goner]
$canScan = [TRUE]


For some reason the author thinks that a Goner sector is like a pirate sector where it's always legal to scan.

Simple solution is to remove the "$race == [Goner] OR" and then it won't scan in those two sectors.

I think a full fix would be to also change the else after it with:

if $race == [Goner]
$canScan = player has police license for race [Argon]
else
$canScan = player has police license for race $race
end

But I'm not a X scripter, so thats just an educated guess.

I finally had the opportunity to test the code and it worked brilliantly of course, only a slight problem, having an Argon Police License doesn't make it legal to scan in Goner sectors. DOH

I don't know if it's a bug or what, but the current path level of AP does not allow freight scanning in Goner's two sectors.

So the "fix" is to remove the "$race == [Goner] OR" from the early line of mermia.asf.xml.

Doesn't seem to work. AL setting isn't even in the menu.

Installed ZIP, nothing.

Installed SPK after uninstalling ZIP. Nothing.
