Don't even try to make sense of the numbers. It'll break your head. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif Example: a frigate moving at 12 KM/s will, in reality, cross a LS in 25,000...

Re: Unit Launch options

On 2 and 3: you realize you can use iff statements in all formulas, right? I haven't tested it in components.txt yet, but it works in techareas.txt.

Re: Unit Launch options

Nope. If an item is displayed, you can use it. And the point is to get it off the list, really; making it unusable is just a side-effect.

Yes you can, once the bug about requirements checking during design is fixed. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Re: Unit Launch options

Won't work. SE5 only checks the requirements when designing, building or retrofitting a ship.

EDIT: and this is a good thing. Otherwise you'd be unable to make components obsolete....

Re: Unit Launch options

True. However the targeting list would probably get a bit unwieldy after a while.

Re: More data weirdness

That won't give you the total of the two, PES. What it'll do is base the level on the higher of the two (most likely..).

If you want it based on the average between the two, it'd be simpler to do:...

Re: Component Data Weirdness

Seeker turn rate *is* optional, but without it a seeker will have a turn rate of 0. So its kind of important. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif

There's a list but its out of date and not accurate. Search around the forum for Fyron's post that "doesn't" have Description_Abilities.txt attached to it.

Re: Modding Process

That'd be the to-hit forumla right below the damage. It starts out as 100 (by default, defined in settings.txt) and goes from there.
