Hi I installed this script and have been using it for a couple of days, I must say I'm impressed very nice script well done. However i do have one critisism. When the explorers are deploying sats they're dropping them in places where they ARE going to get destroyed i.e close to the centre and pretty low, where any passing pirate/etc can quite easily see it and blow it to hell and back. Eventually replacing all those sats is going to have cost me a lot of money.

What I suggest is to add another AL option "Engage Satellite Safety Mode" default being No. In Default Mode sats will continue to be dropped as they are now, in Safe Mode they would be dropped at 0/100/0 (not perfectly safe, but far safer than in Default Mode). Safe Mode deployment should carry an extra fee of a couple of hundred creds, which will still be a big saving over replacing every sat several times.

Like I said apart from the sat deploy this script is perfect and should be signed in my opinion.

I know this is an older thread but does anyone know of such a script for X2 (because i presume this one is for X3)?

I don't know of anything like this for x2 myself or even if this would work in x2 :? .

If anyone wants to try installing the scripts into their x2 and seeing if they work let me know. My x2 disks are on the other side of the world right now and I don't plan to have them shipped to me :roll: .

Does anyone have the problem of explorers all wandering to Kingdom End and getting stuck there?

I generally have 6 / 7 explorers (level 15+) all stuck in KE, all with places to go (upgrading themselves or off to other sectors to scan asteroids etc) But it seems they can't get out of the sector.....

Also moving them out manually and restarting UE doesn't seem to help, most of the time they just make there way back and get stuck again....

Any ideas?

Running :
XTM
RRF
GCS3 + GAIUS

+ a few others which I doubt have any impact (like jumpdrive kits)

I have the same problem as Thoradin.

All my explorers just keep going back to Kingdom End to get stuck there.
Even if i move them to the other side of the universe and restart UE they keep going back to KE. Most of the time they want to fly to an equipment dock for the cargo bay upgrade, but instead of going to the equipment dock they fly to KE.

I have the same mods/scripts running as Thoradin + the bonus pack and improved Xenon script.

I think the Kingdom End problem is a conflict with GAIUS. I had the same problem but after a fresh install without GAIUS the problem is no more. I also noticed the AL sat options for UX were corrupted and not showing properly.

Does anyone have a copy of this laying about that they would be so kind as to rehost somewhere? Sounds like a great script if I can get my hands on it.

Thanks!

Sorry guys,
but if I install, do I have to start a new game??

I installed, and in a saved game, saw none of the "commands".

I started a new game, and could not even find the explorer software at Teladi equip docks.

Maybe the installation??

Can someone point me i the direction of install instructions?

Cheers.

You need the Bonus Pack which contains the basic Explorer Software item for purchase AND this script in order to use Universe Explorer.

Already do. Sorry, should have been specific.

Still no joy.

If you don't see the Explorer software for sale anywhere then your installation of the Bonus Pack went wrong somehow.

How is the script installed?

Do I take the files out of each folder, and put them in the corresponding game folder?

what about the spk file?

The Explorer Software (not to be confused with Universe Explorer) is a part of the official X3:Reunion Bonus Pack, found here. It's an exe installer, not an spk file because everything in the BP is signed by Egosoft and thus is not considered a modification of the game.
