****NEWBIE QUESTIONS?? - look no further2!!****

What good does commenting out the locked_jump parameters in the initialworld file do?? The Magellan gate is still locked in MP, and in this unorganized tutorial post (good tutorials, bad layout), I cannot find any additional info. I heard something about editing the mpnewchar file, but nothing there seemed applicable, and the newchar.ini was just jibberish to my arsenal of FL modding tools. How do I open the friggin jump hole??! On a tangent, how do I change the MP starting ship? The index says ...

Coding advice from the experts?

Are these mods 100% server-side, that is, will they work without the individual clients having to do anything?? If so this could revolutionize our LAN games. Additionally, does modding the power, max shield, and cargo hold of existing ships work server side, or is that on a per-client(...) basis? Thanks for your help, --VrmlBasic

**Tutorial** - Making big planets

I found the answer to my problem, I was INSIDE the planet (GROAN). FL Doesn´t automatically adjust the spacing of things, so with an 8k radius Newwark is just barely visible poking out of manhattan´s bulk. How can I go about fixing this (without shrinking the planet??) Also, can bases be resized with just text-editing? --VrmlBasic P.S. Could you enable HTML in here, or at least make your forum code have the equivalent of the necessary HTML functions (paragraph, HR, table, break return)... That...

**Tutorial** - Making big planets

When I said realistic size, I did not mean a literal 1:1 scale, but rather scaling like that of other space games such as Tachyon: The Fringe. Currently in FL, the ship is almost as big as the planet, making no sense, and the ship is about 1/8th of a standard-size base(ie trenton). When you consider that a ship is only 4 times bigger than a person, it is incredibly unrealistic. Only 3 people could fit in the bases at their current size, and that would be a stretch; ever seen pics of a Saturn V r...

**Tutorial** - Making big planets

Is there a program or mod already made that will scale the planets and bases to a realistic size already made, or will I have to do such a task by hand? I´d appreciate it if there was a program <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> BTW, what is the planet name of Planet Manhattan (ie what folder under the solars directory cooresponds to it?)? I was thinking that it was either earth plain or earth_city, but does anyone know for sure? Thanks, VrmlBasic Edited b...

Console Commands

So the console allows remote grouping? Ok, that´s progress. Now, is remote trading (with or without) console useage available, and if not, can it be added server-side?

In my (limited) testing, I have found that the command line parameter does bail me out of my predicament, and I can now go on about my freelancing. It´s tough to be a trader when the enemy is armed, and isn´t saving salutations for later. Now with true wingmen this won´t be a problem... Edited by - vrmlbasic on 12/2/2004 7:52:34 PM

Ok, I understand port triggering now (thx for the link), but how do I get FL-Client to understand that its data is comming in on a new port?

The images work now, it was not the forum at fault, merely the way I interpreted its shoddy BBcode example for linking images. I took the quotes to mean that you enclose your url in quotations, but that isn´t the case. No quotes, no closing tag. Now, back to the problem at hand.... P.S. I´ll check out that link now, thanks for the post. Edited by - vrmlbasic on 12/1/2004 6:23:40 PM

I have remedied the 2 router problem, and am now running on one ´centralized´ router. Now, the problem is how do I redirect ports? I have taken the liberty of putting up some screenshots to give our avid networkers an idea of what I´m working with. Remember that I have no clue what most of this stuff is, however I understand the basics such as DHCP serving. Thank you for taking that into account with your replies.

Ok, an image system DEFINITELY needs to be implemented, the forum mutilated my depiction into something unspeakable, and the BBCode has to stop auto-inserting spaces after tags. That is very troublesome for the forum poster. Assuming a standard, one-router setup, how would I go about redirecting these ports? The most viable option I found was UUtp (?) redirecting, but I cannot go back to reference it as the 2 routers are locked in their perpetual power struggle of who gets the integrated managem...

First off, thank you Earendil for the help, but I have encountered another snag in the potential path to FL enjoyment. This forseen problem has to do with the internally jury-rigged (ie NOT illegal) method of internet access, a problem that has me lost in the tortuous world of networking.

Oh look! More fan fiction!

Keep this up, each chapter grows progressively better, and the plot &amp; delivery don´t get too much better than this. This could be a plotline for the (hopefully) inevitable expansion pack. We can hope, but at least you can take pride in a job well done.

House Advantages

Don´t forget that Bretonia is loosing to the MOLLIES (!!) in Dublin, that´s just sad. On a side note, why are all the Brit scum small-time?? I mean, the gaians and mollies have but 1 base a piece (the mollies´ being pointless to get to), but when you check out liberty its like the mafia. The rogues have bases spanning all of C-W liberty, the Junkers have N-S liberty, and the xenos have C-N liberty. That´s two IN-HOUSE bases, plus the umpteen bases scattered throught the border worlds on the ...

Oh look! More fan fiction!

The text pasted in like that from word (better medium for typing), and I don´t know if there´s any way to preserve format when pasting here. Also, for all of you who critique, how can you have one-line criticisms about my paragraphs? That puzzles me. While we´re on this subject, think about a paragraph, and every time you quoted something, how would it look if you started on a new line?? I can see for dialogue, but not for witticism and remarks. If I started each quote with a new paragraph, i...

Oh look! More fan fiction!

Keep this up, we´re hooked, an author can´t let his hooked readers down, it´s against protocol, and besides we wouldn´t let you waste such a creative and literary mind waste away, now could we?? You can´t just freelancer when you can also write about it with such masterly skill and ease. Don´t give up to the barricade of writers´ block, but rather remember that overcomming challenges are fun, like your first won battle in freelancer. Now, if you hadn´t had justices &amp; a starflier, rat...

Fan fiction by Neuromancer

This is expertly written fan fiction, I didn´t even guess cardamine would be the &quot;trump card&quot; in this story, but the connections to the open jump hole to Nomad-land clear up a few loose ends about the absence of a nomad onslaught sweeping through Sirius like the Black Plague. Please, continue this story, you have undoubtedly the praise of all of your intellegent readers, but you can rest assured that you have my praise and support behind you as you craft this endeavour through the unc...

My early post-Sprague Diamond runs have me with 1.5 million dollars so I´m rich enough. Speaking of Sprague, on the way there Freeport 1 said that Reinland was blockaded, buy after sprague I got right in through the jump hole. What´s up with this??
