the current system is basically that you pay a maintance fee for the sector, and that basically includes insurance to cover the costs of replacement sats.

so the price will be the same for a different number of satalites.

the main thing your paying for is the company to keep an eye on the satlites and to pay for the maintance ships

the replacement is a kind of bonus

Hey Cycrow, downloaded your script but have run into an odd problem:

The installer can't install it, keeps telling me - "Unable to open script package"

I've re-downloaded it several times with the same problem, any ideas?

(I'm using v1.86 of your install by the way)

you need v2 of the installer to install his scripts now.

Cycrow,

Is there any way to modify your script to add Pirate bases or Xenon Stations.

Reason I ask is I am trying to determine if we can kill/push the 12 vanilla pirate bases into the new XTM sectors. Also I "seem" to be having Xenon Station respawning into vanilla sectors after a kill.

Wondering, if I learned how to modify it , I could then just wait to see if/where they respawn and not have to kill one at a time and then search for him, not knowing when he'll show up. Would it be as simple as adding the right object type to the right place in your script?

If it's possible, just let me know and I'll keep learning code to do it. If it's not feasible at all then let me know and I'll keep manually killing one at a time.

Thanks

it wasn't really designed for stations, but u should be able to modifiy it to find them.

just change the ship search commands to station ones instead and it should work.

however, i do also have my pirate base locator script that can find pirate bases for you

Cycrow,

Thanks for the help.

Yes, I use the Pirate Base locator as well, but I'd still have to keep running it until the base respawns and hope to catch it. With SEWN I thought I'd get the hit as soon as it was seen and I could work faster killing/pushing.

u can llok at the pirate base locator scripts, that should show u how to detect stations, then just add it to SEWN, it should be fairly easy to add it in

Quick question, am I supposed to hear "Autopilot Activated" every time I add or remove a satellite?

I'm wondering if it's possible to move the "Add Satellites" menu to appear under Navigation instead? If it's a small change what do I need to change? Something about nav sats being under Combat doesn't sit right with me :)

@Cycrow....Using your scripts and loving them..Thanks 4 your dedication 2 the scene...Request: SEWN...I need to know what script to modify so that the network will send an alert to me when an "abandoned ship" shows up in the network...I use the salvage scripts heavy and would love to be notified when there is a bail....Thanks :)


:D Never Mind..I figured it out..I edited Plugin.Sewn.Validship and Plugin.Sewn.Running..Now I have the best salvage network going! Now the network will let me know when an abandoned ship is floating in the sector, which has the duel effect of telling me there are invaders as well...No more accessing the salvage network the "old" way and loosing my plotted course when doing it! Now when they bail, I know about it through SEWN!

@Cycrow:

Thanks for this wonderful script!

I have a little issue with the BBS messages not showing up to establish a contract to replace satellites in sectors with an advanced satellite. Any idea why this could happen? In addition to your script I have the X3 Bonuspackage installed and the official mod for the cockpits. Have I to search the stations in the sector for a BBS that has the message or should it be on any BBS?

@Pogi:

Could you please share how you changed Plugin.Sewn.Validship and Plugin.Sewn.Running to be notified of salvagable ships?

Thanks in advance for your answers!

Sorry guys I was not following this post...Hmmmm, from memory I just went into those scripts and had it look for things "neutral" instead of hostile and for ships with "command none". Basically what you end up with is a network that tells you when they have bailed.

On a side note: Using Bail Signal Ext...Many times when they bail they are still destroyed, so I get a warning of that as well, because they turn "neutral" and have "command none" the split second before they are destroyed.

Actually, if Cycrow could be convinced to alter this script and submit a second version of it for this use, I think it would be another standard in the community. My method works if you like to tinker, but with as much popularity as Bail Signal Ext has in the community, a Cycrow version would be much nicer to have.

Another advantage I have discovered when I did this:...Now I do not have to goto Special/check salvage network..(very annoying to me because it goes to auto-pilot off and I lose my course) ..Now the network tells me what is going on and I can just goto the galaxy map and see if it is worth my effort or not...Happy Trails :D
