      Default "MARS" script help request

      Hi all,

      Let me start by saying that i absolutely LOVE Xtc and a huge thank you to the team behind it, But being a old man and having dodgy reflexes means i'm stuck playing the economy game, while i can pilot a fighter reasonably well as soon as i try to fight in anything bigger I feel completely lost trying to multi-task with my turrets and wings. For this i have always run MARS on my player ship which i can trust to keep me alive and pick up the slack while i muddle my way through the UI.

      As far as i understand (please correct me if I'm wrong) the only thing required to get MARS up and running is the T-file that it uses needs to have the new Laser values edited in, If this is just a case of data entry on the old 1.2 MARS file i could probably give it a go myself if someone can point me in the right direction.

      Sorry for begging for help in my first post (and if i stuck it on the wrong board) but my save is on 6 days now and i have the ironic fight rank of "Competent" which I clearly ain't, any one who can help there's 10,000 microchips and a lifetime supply of E-cells in it for you :)

      Cheers

      Joe

      The weapons have been massively overhauled and are different to 1.2
      While the 1.2 file will work, mars won't alway do good decisions, as the decisions are based on wrong values. Can someone point me to the 1.2 Mars t-file?

      This was the file i always used in 1.2 haven't personally tried it in 2.0 yet as i know the change in values would have made it stupid.

      Joe


      Edit: Oops never checked the link, downloads dead but further down Gazz states that the files should be bundled with MARS itself. I'll try and dig out my old downloaded copy

      I agree, once you get used to your minion Goblins (aka freightdrones MK IV), its hard if you have to do it yourself again.

      Also that vanilla "Fire Control" just drives you nuts on purpouse with its moron-AI targetchoice like "Khaak Destroyer 3k away right in front? We dont care, we need to kill that Khaak Scout at 5k on the left befor he gets away! We will never hit him with our big slow Photon Pulse Cannons? Well if we keep shooting at him...."

      I cant wait for mars, using the standard scripts for turret control but they are worth exactly squat. Cant hit a barn ... a BIG floating barn in space. Thats from my experience anyway ...

      Bump! Cause yeah, us lazy people need this asap :P


      WARNING - BUMPS are not welcome at TXU forums. Read the forum rules and follow them, please.

      (besides KJ already said he'll try to get a working solution when he can, see above)

      *Edit - Yep. Not a rule I would particularly remember with the amount of forums I post on. Good to know we're such sticklers here. <.<
      And really, a dislike? The point of that is what? It's not going to bring it to my attention. The reply afterward did. Too bad you can't dislike 'dislike's no?

      Lazy doesn't even enter into it for me. The only reason I use MARS is so my turrets can actually HIT the target, instead of everything but.
