Scripts & Mods from TC/AP

Post by laux » Tue, 22. Jun 21, 21:34

I have tried some scripts from TC/AP in the last days and wanted to use this topic to discuss about compatiblities.

Because especially in FL the conflicts between the races play a role, I have tried a few AL plugins that provide a little more action. So far I have tried this one:

[AL-PLUGIM]Race Invasions v1.0a - 23.06.09
-This works for now, but there were some read-text errors. (especially in German) But that should be fixable.
-It's more something to watch or I didn't really understand the concept.

[SCRIPT/AL Plugin][TC] Frontier Wars [v0.4 - Tu-31-May-2011]
-The ships are created without shields.
-Makes little sense, I think, since the unclaimed sectors are claimed by either the player or the other races anyway.

[SCRIPT] Military Base Response revamp v2.16 [2011-10-27]
(current version: viewtopic.php?p=4798579#p47985790)
-Looks pretty promising and so far I couldn't find any bugs
-I'll probably keep running this one
-fits perfectly into the FL-setting
-many adjustment options
-the FL plot should have been finished before!

Not to mention the Script collection from Lucike. (unfortunately have no link) Runs perfectly.

Have you tested any other scripts?

Good to see some people out here testing old mods. I don't have much knowledge with mod compatibility so here is a question. Back in TC/AP there was a mod that made it so AI's could cause each other to bail during fights think that would still work?

You can't be sure that it will work. But since the no-steam-exe exists, I made a copy of the game folder and the saves and tested it there. This way, you can at least avoid breaking something.

Most mods will probably not work, because here the often types data were changed and it becomes incompatible.

Hi Laux,

How did you get the script collection from Lucike to work?

Most of the scripts require the "Befehlsbibliothek" and that seems to conflict with 3 of the vanilla X3:FL scripts:
  1. !ship.cmd.follow.pl.pck
  2. !ship.cmd.moveposition.std.pck
  3. !ship.signal.killed.pck
On a full replace, my game hangs on gamestart (menu is fine) and after comparing the files it does not seem like a quick merge job.
without replacing these files it seems to run somehow, but I fear there are a lot of unseen errors/issues (CODEA working is my main goal).
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I only use these: (Sorry I only know the German names)
- Handelsvertreter
- Warenlogistigsoftware
- Raketenabwehr Moskito
- MEFOS
- Prospektor (is installed but has read-text-errors)
+ the two required libraries

All scripts run without problems, exept the Prospektor (here I have turned off the notifications anyway).
I didn't have to adjust anything to get the scripts to run.

Btw., In the meantime, I have already spent a lot of time with "Military Base Response revamp". This is my favorite so far. The races are now at full war with each other and there have already been many sector changes.

The download links for Lucike's adjusted script collection can be found here. German / English names are as follows:

Apollo - ?
Ausruestungsmanager - Equipment Manager
Automatische Zielerfassung - Automatic Target Acquisition
Befehlsbibliothek - Libraries (required for (almost?) all of the scripts, so need to be installed, too!)
Blaupausenmanager - Blueprint Manager
Grundgehalt - Basic Salary
Handelsvertretung - Commercial Agent (CAG)
Militaertransport - Military Transport
Personaltransporter - Personnel Transport
Prospektor - Prospector
Raketenabwehr Moskito - Missile Defence Mosquito
Reiseantrieb - Travel Drive
Schifffunktionstasten - Ship Hotkeys
Schiffswerkzeuge - Ship Tools
Sicherheitsdienst - Security and Rescue Service
Sprungboje - Jump Beacon
Waffensystem_CODEA - CODEA Weapon System
Waffensystem_MEFOS - MEFOS Weapon System
Warenlogistiksoftware - Commodity Logistics Software (CLS)
Wirtschaftshaendler - Economy and Supply Trader (EST)

English text files should be included, if they were available for X3TC/AP. Links to X3TC/AP support topics can be found here.

"Conflict" as in the library files replace the vanilla files? If so, that's normal and was also the case for X3TC/AP. If you're using Steam, then Steam may redownload the original files, though. Therefore better use a Steam independent version using the NoSteam.exe.

Another script that works with X3FL: MARS by Gazz, see this topic.

Thanks for the fast reactions and detailed help.
I was able to get everything to work as far as I have tested it now (will see if something pops up later during my playthrough(s)).

BTW just to add to this thread, the following mods work without issue (so far):

Organic Boron Hulls [TC][AP][Script]
  • Works on all settings (change in T file) but I prefer it very low to boost those poor boron.
  • They somehow always get the short end of the stick in my games without it (amazing with MBBR).
  • When enabled mid game it does not work on the existing ships, only for newly "created" ships.
[Script] Convert Passenger to Marine V1.0 (08.08.2009)
  • Great for "picking up" strays from the battlefield and give them a job with CODEA (you can change the job after they become marines, the crappy marines can become great pilots or tenders, etc. over time).
[AL PLUGIN] Pirate Guild 3: Dynamic AI and Guild System - v1.59 - [2010-07-22]
  • Possibly also listed somewhere else, but works well and adds some immersion and much needed (configurable) pirate presence.
  • EDIT 17/02/21: Piratebases "call" the player for help (audio message) when they are attacked. I have not found a way to turn this off.
[SCRIPT] Anarkis Defense System - v2.65.1 - [2010-08-13]
  • Wings, management, etc. works just fine, just be carefull with adding RWE variant for now as I hung my game (pending investigation).
[AL PLUGIN] Yaki Armada 2 - Beta Build 210 - [2010-07-22]
  • Works like a charm and is best activated in game before the pirate plugin as this detects it if its active.
[script] Karma r10
  • Amazing little script that works well and gives that extra feeling of immersion as killing things now comes back to bite you in the ass
  • Not sure if its still available, if needed I can send/upload the R10 version of it (don't know the best location yet).
[DIR][New]Player Hunt V 1.0 NPC Bounty Hunter Squads [01/18/2014]
  • Seems to work well. It makes life hard, as it should be when you are upsetting the powers that be.
  • Scales with fight rank, so be prepared when using it in an existing game.
[SCRIPT] Ranking Dial by Wercho - adjusts the growth rate of trade / combat rank
  • For people that like to struggle a bit more to get those ranks, or don't want to drop so fast due to the dynamic rank system.
  • Lots of options and a detailed setup.
[SCRIPT] Change Notoriety Growth Rates - Slow Notoriety by Wercho
  • Works well to slow down the game progression and is vital when using playerhunt.
[SCRIPT] Ship killed notifications v1.0.3 [2008-11-16]
  • So far so good, did not see any strange behavior.
[SCR] No notoriety loss from hitting jumpgates
  • Simple script, works as expected.
[SCR] Safe undocking / jumping (v1.00, 08.04.12)
  • Seems to work, hard to tell for now.
MOD - TCM Tubeless_Complex_Mod
  • Works as expected, saved me from quite a bit of lag around large complexes.
[SCRIPT] NPC Bailing Addon v1.7.8 [2010-09-21]
  • works just fine
[SCRIPT] Salvage Commands & NPCs v1.5 [2008-11-20]
  • there will be quite a few scavengers when you turn it on, best to limit it, but just my opinion.
Still need to test a few more, but its morning again so I guess thats that for now.
