Doing that Hovis Race thing is rather a neat idea. I always thought it was pointless racing him. If you had to do multiple laps then it might prove to be an admirable endeavor, but one smegging lap ... give me a break. Glad we have the option to remove it.

Sir Spectre: My thoughts exactly. But, since there are people who do enjoy it, it´s still in there. My primary gripe with it is debugging. It´s a pain-in-the-backside trying to run through the missions with the various ships. The way I´ve set it up, when you decline to race, head to the dock, and you´ll see the scene where Hovis congratulates you on winning, and tells you where to find Quintane. As to the Gemini Sector... I went through all of the systems and made the maps visible. And I´ve rearranged the Freelancer systems into a semblance of Gemini. Since Perry connects to New Detroit (New York in FL), I´m going to try and make that system first. Once that´s working, I´ll add more systems, and start changing the jumpgates, and jumpholes. I think that part of the problem I was having was two-fold: 1) I used the &quot;Mission-Only&quot; systems to create Gemini-I´m going to leave them out of this one. 2) I changed all of the jumpgates to jumpholes-probably created bugs doing that. Watch your 6!

Can the Crossbow and Broadsword be aquired by the player?

ok, instantly i see some things that i think need a change. honestly i like either the original clothing for trent, or give him the orillion uniform ( has that dark brooding assasin look that way) secondly the mission payouts are way too high. In all of privateer the highest payout ive ever seen was about 9k, whereas the level 1 missions here are about 20k+. no bugs so far, will keep looking Who dares wins

ok, last thing before i get some sleep, been up almost 30 hours straight now between projects and this, the powerplant upgrades become less and less upgrades as you climb up the ladder, your paying an extra 40k for only 400 more power, this should probably get looked at but in the balance stage after we get this whole thing finished Who dares wins

Du7andal: Not right now, maybe later. I´ve got them set up as Gunboats, and for some reason, that reverses all of the controls. black_phoenix: Two things: 1) The Drone substituting as the Nomad Fighter/Gunboat. 2) Using the Crossbow and Broadsword as Gunboats, but also as a Player´s ship. (If I make them available to the player, later, I have to have 2 versions to prevent a repeat.) black_phoenix: I reduced the payouts, but several MP´s complained. black_phoenix: Yeah, I had Chemus´ repaired &amp; visible, Demon in, and then I started getting a bunch of bugs/CTD´s. Hopefully, the Demon will take it´s rightful place in the next release. This release is just to verify that I´ve gotten all of the bugs. black_phoenix: In order to get the Orion to stop flying like a drunkard, I had to change it´s handling. The other ships started handling better as I began removing bugs! (And i´ve tried to get them as accurate as possible to online stats.) black_phoenix: Sir Spectre: The powerplants are setup according to online stats. That´s how they are in Privateer. One thing you´ve got to realize about engine upgrades, or any upgrades: They work different on the smaller, lighter, more agile ships, than they do on a tank like the Centurion, or the Thunderbolt. IE: Put the Super-Afterburner, and Engine Upgrade 7 on an Epee, and you´ll be drilling holes in planets without even trying! Put a Generator Upgrade 7 on an Epee, and you´ve wasted 300k credits, but on a Thunderbolt it´s almost the bare minimum. Watch your 6! Edited by - warzog on 5/4/2004 7:45:07 PM

It is your mod, I think it would be great if this would be sorted out, but understand it may take quite a bit of doing to get them corrected, This is only in the Bretonia quadrant, I haven´t got to the others after Bretonia yet Quixotal Edited by - Quixotal on 5/4/2004 7:58:28 PM

Well, what can I say, oops? I based the commodities on the factions running the base/planet. The only way to correct this is to visit every base in the game, noting everything. (A very time-consuming, but more accurate way to do it, I guess.) That´s why it´s a Beta... One of those little things that needs to be sorted out. Since I´ll be away from my computer until at least friday, I´ll get on it this weekend. Watch your 6!

you could simply run FL Datastorm for figuring out the commodities. this way you wouldnt have to run through the whole universe and land on every station/planet.

also warzog, when setting up the commodities did you make some of the bases refineries? throwing things like LD-14 as a refinery and making things like Stokes as Mining bases would give people the cariety they are looking for Who dares wins
