[Request] Disable or bypass the babbling boron?

Post by tylitalo » Fri, 24. Jan 20, 08:26

If it would be possible to tap the space bar or something to skip the boron's babbling during the PHQ plot, to simply move on to the next step, it would be a lot less annoying to repeat the game start. But, I have no idea how to do so.. ;)

A number of the custom game starts, mine included completely skip the boron questline and give you the PHQ under your control. You find them here, Nexus, Steam Workshop

Thanks. I suppose the reason I haven't tried any of those out is because I wasn't sure they were still working with the beta. Trying yours out now. :)

Aww give him a break. He's been stuck in a tank for years and just wants a new friend!

to be honest, I would love if he just calls you up from time to time and gives you some lore

You have a valid point there. :lol:

I was frustrated at having to sit at the next objective, waiting for him to be done talking before I could drop a satellite or whatever he needed next, for the third or fourth time in a few days. I thought it'd be nice to be able to shorten his quests up a little by skipping his dialogue.

The boron's speech is less annoying than aggroing pirates all over Grand Exchange out to get your hundred credits' worth of antimatter cells.

I personally like DeadAir's War Game Start, he also included his AI dynamic reputation scripts which make the AI go-between peace and war with other factions in a more dynamic way the vanilla game faction rep between the AI is locked and they cannot decide to go to war with each other only the player rep with faction changes.
I also use hits GatesOverhaul which adds tons of new sectors.
