[SCR] Landing/Docking Booster

Post by Gazz » Tue, 28. Oct 08, 23:34

(Das entsprechende deutsche Topic ist hier.)

This script adds one hotkey.

It can be used if your ship or the ship you have targeted is currently approaching a station or carrier with the intention of landing.

The result?
The ship will speed through the landing approach with it's regular cruising speed instead of flying with 40-100 m/s.
Especially useful with the silly big terran stations where you tavel through 20+ km of landing corridor...

The ship should also not get "stuck" as often as before, ideally never again.
That happened a lot to me when landing on carriers.
My ship sat there with 0 speed... forever.
Not any more. =)

I'm trying to unregister the hotkey, but my grasp of scripts is still too limited so I failed. Don't suppose you got a uninstall script for it?

ya, I manually removed those scripts files, but the hotkey setting is in the game.

is there a proper way to uninstall this?

I installed this, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I have a Zephyrus and am trying to get my Scimitar to dock. It will (sometimes), but when I press the hotkey I just get a message "No Aim", and it doesn't approach any faster.

Any ideas?

Also, would this script allow a ship to dock to a moving carrier? I assume not since the AI won't with out the script, but thought I would ask.

The Scimi must be docking or trying to. Just like the first post says...

If it's out there fighting, it is "no aim" for this script because it's a docking script, not a fighting script.

Nope, I've ordered it to dock, and if you bring up the info on the ship, it says that it is landing. Just taking it's sweet ass time.

Sounds strange, I never encountered that myself.


Gazz, could you please be bothered to make an uninstall script for the hotkey for those of us that'd like to remove it?

Can't get this to work either. Or maybe I am not working it right. I pick a station as target, set the auto pilot and press the hot key. I hear a voice say "ready" but nothing happens.

This seems like it would be really great if it would work.

I dunno. I did the exact same thing and it worked.

Granted, there were no fanfares or fireworks - it simply worked as designed.
