Re: Proposed Change to Flee AI

@another_commander The behaviour of the AI seems better from what I can tell but I did have some crashes using this executable together with the latest nightly. Are you on NVidia graphics? If yes, disable "Multi-threading Optimizations" in the NVidia control panel. Edit: Alternatively, check whethe...

Re: Proposed Change to Flee AI

Thanks for all the info. I still did not have the chance to test that executable but I will do so tonight.

Re: Proposed Change to Flee AI

Hadn't realized there was a link to a compiled exe file. Thanks Cody!

Re: Proposed Change to Flee AI

Hmm, I just realized now that these modifications are for the source code and not for any game files post-compilation, right? I am quite unfamiliar with Oolite compilation and this might take me a while to figure out. Sorry about that!

Re: Proposed Change to Flee AI

Out of curiosity, what is the distribution of dumb ships in the game? How is accuracy set for the default NPCs? Is that dependent on the type of system?

Re: Question about Custom Shields OXP

Yeah, I just took a look and ships with higher accuracy behave far better when evading shots head on or when fleeing. Perhaps the lowest AI values could be set to do at least some attempts to dodge, as Norby suggested -- nothing that would dramatically change the difficulty but something that would ...

Is this working again? Good news if it is!
I never realized if they were ever broken, but those numbers seem quite reliable to me.

Re: Question about Custom Shields OXP

@another_commander Great, really appreciate the reply! I had found those variables in the main script but I wasn't sure what was meant by basic and advanced. I will give that a shot later today! About the game difficulty, I hope you don't mind if I follow up with a couple more questions/comments: * ...

Re: OXPs by popularity

The only problem with that is that the download number is reset to zero if a new version is uploaded with a new identifier. Aye, there's the rub. Forgot about that since I always keep the same identifiers. That basically nullifies the idea. Also, worth stating that just because something is popular...

OXPs by popularity

Hi all, Given that we currently have over 500 OXPs available, it could be very nice to be able to list them not only alphabetically by category in the in-game expansion manager but also by popularity (number of downloads). This could be particularly helpful to newcomers, as I heard from a couple of ...

Question about Custom Shields OXP

Hi all, I would like to ask for some advice customizing the Custom Shields OXP. Here is the background: I use a couple of different OXPs that make the game a bit harder for the player, namely Skilled NPCs, Deepspace Pirates and all those OXPs that simulate hull damage, leaks and equipment failures. ...

Re: Fuel Station expansion pack - an oddity

I did try contacting him when Thargoid wrote me about not being the person behind the upload of the old version. But I never heard back. I will try again.
