Using this tool you can more easily compare ships to determine how ships of the same class stack up against each other or to quickly filter ships by transport ware class, weapon, or missile capability. No longer will that new purchase of yours reveal an unexpected weakness*. By default the ship browser only lets you compare ship types that are known to the player to prevent any spoilers. Ships highlighted in green can be purchased based on current notoriety.
The current version has two information pages:
General page - Shows Race, Purchase Location and Price
Combat page - Shows Main Guns/Turret Counts, Weapon Energy Pool, and Shield Generator strength.
Closing and reopening the ship browser should remember the last settings chosen.
See additional details and play around with possible loadouts by selecting a ship:
Install the script archive using the plugin manager. Under controls set a hotkey for the 'Ship Browser.'
1. Purchasing the best ship you can buy for a given task - great early on when purchase options are limited and you don't feel like grinding notoriety.
2. Planning your next 'acquisition' or deciding which race you want to grind notoriety for next.
3. Great for total conversions where ship stats no longer match the vanilla and may not be easily googled.
4. Useful for those working on their own ship mods to balance stats and quickly spot mistakes.
To enable spoiler mode to see all ships regardless of whether or not you know where to purchase them, you must edit the T file 8103-L044.xml (8103-L049.xml for German language) and change:
Code: Select all
<t id="14">0(Spoiler Mode)</t>
Code: Select all
<t id="14">1(Spoiler Mode)</t>
** Weapon filter not limited to main guns. Keep that in mind when looking at M6/M7s.
*** Docking class types has nothing to do with docking counts. At this time there is no quick way to determine how many ships of a given type can be docked. If the docking class is not a M5-M3 assume the ship may only be able to dock at most 1 of the shown types. For example, the screen shot shown above the Tepukei only docks 1 M1. You cannot dock 23 of them.
Docking Port Notes:
For brevity anything that can dock an M1 can also dock any other ship type in that same slot. So if you dock a TM you may not be able to dock an M1 if the ship in question only has that one cap ship docking port. Also, anything that can dock a TS can also dock a TP.
