I currently am just building "around it" (just moved everything out of sight), but i was wondering how hard it would be to scrap all that out. Everyone said that adding factions was moderately difficult, but I personally thought it was easy, just time consuming.
Last time this was talked about, you could delete all of the systems except for FP7 and LI01. Now, I wanted to know, has there been a breakthrough where with the Open SP mod, you can delete all of the old systems, factions, ect. so that you can start a new mod from scratch?
First off, you don't need an attitude like that. We know you'll make the decision.
Also, I agree with you about the long lists, and would just like to suggest making the URL limit to three. This includes picture URLS too. As for pictures, what about 450 x 150. A simple 3:1 ration in size, and doesn't get much bigger than a normal banner.
Remember, these are just my IDEAS to what I think should be done. I personally would like to hear other's opinions too.

aaaaaaaaahhh i don't like this idea.
-don't allow links. this will stop other sites' ad.
-allow imgs to 700x300 at least.
this won't hurt anyone here... also, one per thread... this idea is crazy, this is the first place which i see this kind of rules :?
Ok, taking the links out...wtf? A simple link is better than having a picture up, especially with a picture that can be 700x300. Seriously, what does it hurt to have a link to someone else's mod? I mean honestly, that's how I find out about 9/10ths of them. If someone could explain why having links is a problem, please do.
This is one of the easiest things to answer.
nickname = ge_cof_engine_01
ids_name = 263681
ids_info = 264681
volume = 0.000000
mass = 10
max_force = 48000 <-------------------This
linear_drag = 599 <---------------------Devided by this gives you the speed at which the engine is going to move the craft.
power_usage = 0
reverse_fraction = 0.200000
flame_effect = gf_li_smallengine01_fire
trail_effect = gf_li_smallengine01_trail
trail_effect_player = gf_li_smallengine01_playtrail
cruise_charge_time = 5
cruise_power_usage = 20
character_start_sound = engine_bw_fighter_start
character_loop_sound = engine_bw_fighter_loop
character_pitch_range = -50, 25
rumble_sound = rumble_bw_fighter
rumble_atten_range = -5, 0
rumble_pitch_range = -25, 25
engine_kill_sound = engine_bw_fighter_kill
cruise_start_sound = engine_bw_cruise_start
cruise_loop_sound = engine_bw_cruise_loop
cruise_stop_sound = engine_bw_cruise_stop
cruise_disrupt_sound = cruise_disrupt
cruise_backfire_sound = cruise_backfire
indestructible = false
outside_cone_attenuation = -3
inside_sound_cone = 60
outside_sound_cone = 180
just play with those two numbers to get what you want. The best way to go about it, is to set the linear_drag to 600, that way to figure out the speed, all you have to do is mess with the max_force and whatever number that is, devide by 600. Very simple math.
Anything else you would like to know?
I didn't mean for it to sound hostile. I'm sorry for that.
Also I was unaware that other forums used the same ranking system. I personally made a system that pertained to my mod.
How'd you get the ghost docking ring to work? I never have been able to.
May I ask why you're copying parts of this site?
Yea...that's just the beginning of it. Like I said, I'm completely rewriting the resources.dll, and if you want, I can post all of the weird codes I've come across. Don't know how much it will help but...
And another thing I've found is that there's A LOT of random coding just throne in there. I've been wondering why they did that?
I don't know if anyone's seen this before, but as I was rewriting the resource.dll for my mod, I cam across;
is this just another one of those codes that were never implemented or what?
I personally am looking for Mantaray, Silvik, and Garion for the homeworlds shippack. I tried going threw a couple of other mods that I found them in, but no prevail.
Which ship creators, the one's I'm looking for? And even if you have permission to use them, how does that benefit the rest of us?

A security group involved with Iraq at the moment. They have been in the ahh, news lately. Not to nicely either;

Sounds like the Wolf Pack. I know their in sci-fi movies a lot, but I looked them up. Like frickin modern day Spartans...but on the mercenary side.
Thanks for making me feel like a nerd. I completely understood that, and had to explain it to my girlfriend...
Anyways, if you want to talk about things that are good for you, I can't remember the technical mumbo-jumbo, but three glasses of wine a day helps to flush out your kidneys and liver. Just like cats, it helps to extend your life.
I understand, but like I've said before, how do we get in contact with people that are untouchable. I mean right now I'm personally only trying to get permission for the homeworld shippack, but the thing is is that I've found a lot of ships that I would like to use, but can't because I have no email address, and no other way to get in contact with them. So do I just say, "Oh well, guess I have to settle with what I don't want."? And I don't mean that in an angry way, I'm just saying.
I see what iMac is saying, and shouldn't that be the one biggest way to cover it? I mean unless they're a complete prick, I don't see why anyone would get too pissed from that.
Not trying to sound like an asshole, but is there anyway around the copyrights/permissions to use those ships? I mean I understand that just giving credit isn't enough in some cases, but how do we know which ones are and aren't?
So.......if we want to use their ships, we're screwed?
I must say that I have the same problem a lot. I find a ship I like, find the name of the creator, but no email. We have lists of everything is freelancer, but we don't have a list of emails or who's who. I want to ask if someone could do something like this, but I don't expect to see it as it would be a pain in the ass.

It's possible to simulate it, however it requires VERY advanced ALE editing skills. If you wish I could try it.
Go right ahead my friend. Once again, that is not a subject I know. If it isn't .cmp, .ini, .wav, .doc, .docx, or .xml, I don't know how to do it.
