[Script] Power Matrix Transfer System (PMTS) [v0.4 - FINAL STANDALONE VERSION]

Rate this Entry
Please find attached the current formal release of the mod I am working on, see here on the ES Scripts & Modding forum and here on this site for some of the background information and discussion. Please see here on the TXU Wiki for detailed information about this mod.

The main changes for 0.4 are: Two minor bug fixes with the salesman script: (i) Incorrect offering (again) of the PMTS when only level 1 is installed and (ii) Offering of installing PMTS on another ship when there is already an offer outstanding on a ship
The main changes for 0.3 are: Addition of incremental beep and message, changed PMTS upgrades/reports to provide Weapon Power limits in kW, changed most (if not all) number formats to use the 3 digit grouping
The main changes for 0.2 are: Addition of alarm beep to alert you when you have increased/decreased as far as you can go.

Overview



This mod/script uses no wares in the traditional sense (currently ties the PMTS Console to the Fight Command Software Mk. 2 for remote/docked operations but there are 3 Hot Keys for when you are the pilot - 1 for the PMTS Console, 1 to increase power to Weapons, and 1 to increase power to Shields)... The script maintains local variables on the ship in question and uses them to manage the state of the PMTS. The script will initially give you the opportunity to purchase the primary ware and from there on you can upgrade the system from the PMTS Console while docked at a station (for the difference in price from what is already installed). There are 6 levels of the system perceived by the script including the initial base level and all have 100% efficiency when transfering weapon energy to shields and 10% efficiency when transfering shield energy to weapons.
  • Level 1 - Available for 100k and balanced for M5 craft (100kW Shield Energy Transfer Limit)
  • Level 2 - Available for 500k and balanced for M4 craft (500kW Shield Energy Transfer Limit)
  • Level 3 - Available for 2.5M and balanced for M3 craft (2.5MW Shield Energy Transfer Limit)
  • Level 4 - Available for 10M and balanced for M6 craft (20MW Shield Energy Transfer Limit)
  • Level 5 - Available for 50M and balanced for M1/M7 craft (100MW Shield Energy Transfer Limit)
  • Level 6 - Available for 100M and balanced for M2 craft (200MW Shield Energy Transfer Limit)
