[MOD] Manual Command Extension v0.10.2 {Discontinued}

Manual Command Extension
The Manual Command Extension is a mod designed to give you control over basic ship commands that were missing from the games release.

Download:
v1.18 Compatilbity release.
http://download.xtimelines.net/ManualCo ... onV012.zip


Words of Caution
Read This Heading!
These commands are powerful and experimental, please use your best judgement when dealing with them - for example if you have just told a ship to dock at a shipyard for refit, don't go and use any of the MCE commands, you could create potentially disastrous scenarios and deadlock your ship into doing nothing, as well as loosing the credits you just spent!

When a ship is doing a trade run, the MCE, for your own safety, Will not accept any input - Interrupting Trade scripts is not possible at this time, however trade cancel commands are planned for the future when i figure out a way to do them safely :)

Again, use your common sense!

Currently Implemented Commands

Hold Position
Instruct the ship to stop moving and hold in its current location.

Follow Me
Instruct the ship to resume following you (after you told it to hold position)

Move to My Position
Instructs the ship to move to your current position and then hold. This is designed for capital ships so that you are able to move them rather then them simply sitting where they came out of jump

Refuel Jumpdrive
Instructs the ship to replenish its jumpfuel at the nearest friendly Energy Cell Recharging Station.

Escort Me
Instructs the ship to follow you in full combat readiness mode, note that currently this command may not work due to problems with the stock escort script.

Patrol Zone ...
Instructs the ship to patrol a target zone selected from the map.

Move To Zone...
Instructs the ship to move to the zone you select, and then holds position on arrival..

Abort Trades!
Abort Outstanding Trades and return any pre-allocated credits!

Image
Commands On the Drawing Board for the Future
Recall Drones
Attack...
Escort...
Enhanced Engineers - Repair Another Ship
Image
Instructions
To give a command to a ship, first you must add it to your squad.
When a ship is in your squad and you comm it (default key C, also accessible via property menu), select "New Order" and then select "Manual Commands" (2-4)

oh man oh man oh man DAMN dude you are fast.


IT is amazing that mod like this exist already in current form. It bode well for future proper fleet command mode.

No someone needs to rework that radial shit UI and more important that delay

I'd also love to see an "attack..." command so my Arawn might actually start being of use.

Wow, this is great. I can't wait to be able to tell my ships to escort. Perhaps they will actually return fire this time :P

Thank you for your effort and dedication.

The commands seem to work fine (just played around with them a bit), but the current order next to the captain/pilot still says "Following Albion Skunk." in all instances. Which seems only to be cosmetic at this point.

Yes, thanks. :)

A question, the ships have 'collide avoid'... is functional to relation a station, por exemple? The big Ships use path to move our AI in original game?
