Outcasters Starship
« on: June 25, 2010, 08:44:48 AM »
First off id like to say if anyone out there wants to help, your welcomed to...
secound, we could use some editing for this map i attempted to make, too much blank space... maybe some volcanic terrain? (i am currently working on other ends of this colony game like coding).
third, tech tree editor spot is taken by evecolonycommander... credits will go to him for the LOPTEK.txt
forth, credits are going to flashy for compiling the beta down below  and for future betas if he chooses to compile(mine does not work and seems unfixable).
Fith, sirbomber's tutorial really helped... though im not done with it yet...
sixth, if anyone would like to help program just a basic ai, or give source code for previus ai codes (don't know if that would help me), that would be great..


well right now im currently creating a renegades colony game with the star ship objective...

though im just beginning to code an i have not started on the ai yet.. i have placed player 1s structures and units... working on the plymouths' structures now then i will code them into ai proc...

though for now to get only a glimsp of what is to come i will post my rar file here so others may use it...

you may need outcasters.map which can be found in file forum, files for 2, 2nd post down... (thats the map)..

this is my first ever created code and note i have absolutly no programing experiance what so ever... it may be crappy now, but given time it should become good work...

As of Now the list of project staff/contributors are as follows:
-LOP
-ECC
-Flashy



(If you do not see your name above and you think you should be up there, please pm Lordofpain.)
We need more project staff!
Please sign up below..

outcasterstarship.rar is the official up to date outcasterstarship package in a .rar file, please unpackit into your outpost2 folder.

1. There is an actual background and story behind Renegades. What are you doing that connects this map to Renegades, that prevent this map from being passed on as a stand-alone map?

2. Did Eddy-B even give you permission to attach the unregistered trademark (as I'd like to call it) "Renegades"(in the context of Outpost 2) to your map?

3. There is little to nothing that would prevent any modern enough (at least newer than Windows XP) PC from running a compiler and maybe programming environment for you to use.

4. Judging by your past, some of are just in fearing about your incompetence. Why should we expect anything good from this?

I only use numbered paragraphs when I want a clearer distinction between ideas or am annoyed.

its more of a stand alone map really.

it has almost nothing to do with renegades.. its just a tribute to them.
no i did not ask eddy-b, this is solely becuase i beleave its a community thing, not a private thing.. he did leave it to the opu community to decide what goes next right? and he did step down from renegades meaning he has no authority on this.

but this colony game will be good, don't worry.
if it makes you feel better, we could add some novela to it relating to the map..

how this relates now is that they have some unique techs and they look plymouth with yellow color.. (i know that not enough now, but later there will be 3 factions on the map).

though i have already confrimed that ecc and flashy are helping me.. we are, for now, a colony game creating team...

thanks for your concerns.

EDIT: an updated version of my map will be posted below used for this colony mission...

the ai is capable of rebuilding lots of buildings(if sf and cc is live and if it has enough ore), basic defending and repairing

I got the newest thing ready. You forgot to move the tokamak, but everything is fixed

EDIT: I'll add failure conditions and some things
Post 2)
Ok, on easy you've got morale steady, the first objective is rescueing scientists(please tell me if it's buggy), failure conditions are added, and be careful with your initial evacuation transports, if they're dead, you can't build more.
@ ECC: Please add the possibility of building ETs in LOPTEK.TXT

Here's how you do it:

Search for tech number 3607 in the tech file

Set COST to 0

And you're done.


EDIT: Here's my take on the tech tree.

The same dll. But this time, theres a loptek file. Please tell me if there are still bugs
Post 2)
I think a soundless message can cause the game to crash if there are too many other system messages. The new version has sound.
