Happy New Year!
thank you for the update looking forward to checking it out.
. Is it possible for you to set some defaults for drop-down controls? Personally, I would like to have mission type control to be set to steal research, and time frame to one year.
I agree that setting those dropdowns for a spy mission is a real pain. I looked in to doning something like you suggest at one time and I couldn't get it working. That's why I made teh !spy shortcut. Its far from perfect because the tech stolen is random but it was the best I could do. That, along with the ability to ransom back my captured spies make me a lot more willing to roll the dice on reckless random tech stealing missions.
Thanks for your hard work Roger. Sorting by distance is a great idea
You are welcome. Yeah, I was tired of having to search for the nearest destroyer every time a mining station was under attack.
I am eventually going to reinstall Windows 10, so once I do that, I will report back with any further discoveries. For now I can enjoy the mod on Windows 7 dual boot :)
Good to know you can play it. Yeah, I'm dreading my eventual upgrade to Windows 10. Maybe I can hold out for Windows 11? I just found out the hard way the latest version of SQL studio doesn't work with Windows 7. Windows 10 is in my future. :(
Also I love full list of tradable mining bases but can it be sorted by name?
That's been something I've thought about too. I have no idea what the default sort order is. It's probably based on construction date. I'll look in to it but, as usual, no promises.
Got a couple of things that might be bugs, the Grav well is different for different ships ...
The ship counter might be off...
As Tcby said, the different gravity effects for different ships is based on size as a ratio of max buildable size. Like most Bacon Mod features it can be disabled in BaconSettings.txt. Set smallShipsJumpSooner==false to make all ships be affected the same.
If you want to reduce the effect of gravity wells you can simulate that by changing your race settings for ShipSizeFactorCivilian and ShipSizeFactorMilitary to double their value and then limit yourself to only building up to the normal size. That will reduce the gravity well effect on your ships by half.
