So... what does "Player hatred" do? How does it vary from vanilla TC behavior? And what are the Kha'aks doing if not hating the player (98% of the time)?


At a technical level, player hatred is a dice roll from 0 to 99 that is thrown every time a swarm is choosing which sector to attack. If it falls below the specified player hatred value the swarm will attempt to target a sector that has a player asset within it (Station or movable ship)...basically they will put the hate on the player Very Happy

Oh, and I would use the common login for the google code site, but someone went and put verification on it. What is the phone number or city?

Curses! Foiled again!

It would not surprise me if Google did that because they noticed people using the same login from all around the world *sigh*. You could PM LV and ask... but it would be just as easy to ask him to add your own Google account to the site.

In the meantime, you could email it to me and I can post it for you, as a temporary work-around while you are waiting for responses from SS_T and LV.

And thanks for the explanation about player hatred... it makes sense now.

Well... the custom ship option does work wonderfully....

popped in to a sector as the swarm attacked and there were the custom ships tearing up the sector. (I counted at least 7 Large) and the ships were custom ships added through the plugin manager....

With the custom ships being way more powerful than the average Kha'ak...
(Jorkin's 3 B5 shadow vessels, worked wonderfully.... )

I upped the med to 10-25 (the m3 has 7x25 MJ shields), and the large up to 2-9 (only 2x2GJ shields, but very potent weapon configs) anf the scout (m5 has 8x5MJ shields and 4 ISRG) min up to 10...

I did reduce the number of swarms to 5 and the number of wild to 120 or so per your update/advice earlier in the post.

The potential for a 1 swarm customized swarm as a addon or possibly a multiple instance of the script (maybe to simulate multiple fringe elements)
maby make a capture behavior (where the swarm captures up to half the ships n sector and takes the people off the stations causing an across the board drop in relations, just enough survivors were left to spread the tales.. maybe they were captured for slaves, maybe for food, depending on the nature of the "enemy" in your story)

Hmmm...tracker mines that actually track and kill...

Sounds like an option for those small eggs in r3 Twisted Evil

Hi 7ate9tin11s

Very good script.

I found one problem: destroyed medium Eggs (laser tower) leave old wares of X3 Reunion.

PS. I play AP + XRM. Maybe this is the reason for the problem?

I play XRM as well and have yet to see an egg drop junk items. Hmmm, a 'U' class container with quantity 2. I think 'U' items are upgrades like rudder, cargo, and speed (not sure). I will alter the generator to ignore upgrades on LT's for r3.

There is really nothing else that can install 2 of in the build script though

Hey 789, on my journey to make my own script more user friendly, I stumbled on this line in your plugin.ik2.init.xml

Code:
$array = [THIS] -> call script '!lib.array.join' : Array 1=$array Array 2=$temp


Now I am not able to find this !lib.array.join. Where to find it??

cheers

*EDIT*
If it is just a merge array help, forget it Smile. I use lucikes merge.array.

Umm it's in the scripts folder as a .pck
You are probably looking for an .xml file, which it is not

EDIT: I just found out that it is in X3 AP but not in X3 TC, that is probably why you cannot see it

EDIT 2: 789, I noticed that from code you have pasted that you are using XScripter. Since you were last on the forum a new editor called X-Studio by mr.bear was released, which I find to be much easier to use. If you want to you can try it out.

just a note in advance: If you do use X-Studio disable the "automatically insert script code macros" in the options, its a bit buggy, mr.bear has vanished for the time being (probably busy with more important things) and hasn't had a chance to release a fix for it.

Like all bears, I think MrBear fell in winter sleep.

Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
* You're station is under attack *
"Hmmmm?"
* Gamma Swarm Says "Hello!" *
Headbang Khaak

Well, player hate is a powerful thing....*sigh*

So, I have been kicking around a couple ideas for Xenon, what are all your thoughts?

Idea 1
Quote:
"Perhaps we look at the Xenon in the wrong light. We know their programming was to protect humanity and develop us planets. What if they are protecting us? What if keeping us busy and contained with their little skirmishes is to keep us ignorant and happy? What could be that outside threat?"

-Professor Paranid, shortly before execution by priest king


Idea 2
Quote:
"For the longest time the Xenon have focused on bigger and better ships, but we have been noticing a disturbing new trend; The internal electronics are becoming smaller and more ubiquitous. Have the Xenon set upon the path of nanomachines? Will our own ships be turned against us?"

Commander Bullwinkle, ATF AGI Symposium


Idea 3
Quote:
"It is odd how the Xenon migrations mimic communications protocols in legacy computing systems. Could we be nothing more than noise on the line to them? What would happen if they used a broadcast message in hopes of finding other sectors? How can this be turned to profit?"

Nicoman, Teladi Xenotechnologist


I, of course, leave the mechanics of such a world to your imagination. What is your dream for the Xenon? Xenon
