Hey, it was fun as hell!!!

So you try to make the game fool proof... but we're pretty good fools!

Just be glad they put in placeholder graphics. Some coders are lazy and don't..and then when you get things you aren't supposed to the game crashes.

its actually a pretty simple patch to add the "nowish"
flag to items like lavabombs, nova bombs, cobalt torps, etc.

i never actually thought of using lavabombs, because theyre so easy to shoot down. but unless the AI has dedicated point defense, i guess they cant do that.

I guess it would be a pretty significant change to add manual targeting of projectiles to the AI.

yes, we're adding this flag to all "structural" items in the patch. These are things that are part of a ship, not really items you can move around...

(if someone makes a "you are Tchorak" mod and make some graphics for these, they can remove that flag of course)

When an item is "structural", does it means that the player cannot remove it from a ship in his fleet (and swap it around)?

<sulk> Me and my big mouth. I'm not cluing you into anything else to remove in a patch, Fingers. Takes all the fun out....

(the lava bomb is no longer wishable)

What is an example of something that is structural on a ship? Is this the Garthan Carrier's Fighter Bay we're talking about?

And what exactly is the third weapon that the Zorg Frigate has? (The triangle in the middle of the ship). Is it not really a weapon, but rather the LIGHT thingy?

Another good trick: entering wormholes can help you find a black hole you haven't discovered yet. (more points)
