[Solved] Missile Defense Mosquito?

Post by Klord » Wed, 5. May 21, 17:33

The additional ship command for MDM is missing in my nemesis. I have FC MK1 and MK2 installed. Also have 10 mosqui missiles in the bay. But the command is missing. What can be the reason?

What about X4? Nah, I prefer a space simulator rather than a walking simulator.

MDM doesn't exist as it was a bonus pack script, not part of the main game.

instead you either need to use the fire counter missile hotkey, or install the missile defence system

Oh ! If I install it, would that mark the game as modified?

Or can I add the bonus plugin content without getting the tag?

The Missile Defence system is an Equipment you can buy in game, you just install it in your ship for it to start working.

the fire counter hotkey just needs to be assigned. Then when you press it, it'll automatically lock on and fire a mosquito missile at the closest hostile missile. All you need is mosquitos in the cargo bay, you dont need to have them loaded, or need to target the missiles

I might be useful to have a thread that explains where similar functions to all the bonus pack content are. (MDM,CLS,Mk3 Trader, etc). I have no idea how much of that functionality has been made into the base game FWIW :-)

There's the Survival Guide, which you can find in the ingame encyclopedia as well as in the X3FL-Wiki, which gives basic explanations of features like the Station Manager or Missile Defence. We will extend this over time.

The MK3 trader has been a part of the main game in all X3 games.

Is Missile Defence restricted to ship classes?
I cant seem to find a bindable hotkey for it neither in interface or game in control options

It is under the "game" tab, then you have to go to the weapon categories and then somewhere in the middle there is "Launch counter missile" and it's set to Shift+R for me.

It does. However normal ships have only one turret for missiles. And there is a small time gap between 2 consecutive missiles. So if the enemy launches a swarm missile, MDM may not be able to counter them all. Isnt it logical?

Edit: Oh you are THAT guy. Why would I even bothered to answer. :roll:

The missile defense system is automatic, so no need to assign a hotkey

The fire counter missile hotkey is for when you don't have the upgrade which is for you own personal ship. This can be used at anytime as long as you have mosquitos

Hi everyone,

I hope this is a relevant place to ask this question as it feels connected to the topic, apologies if I'm wrong though.

Where the Missile Defence can actually be bought?
I have traveled through 50%+ of the civilized universe and haven't seen this upgrade in trading docks & military stations.
I am friend with Split, Paranid, Boron and Teladi. Argon's don't particularly like me, and among corporations NMMC is the only one I'm doing business with.
Is the upgrade sold somewhere where I'm not welcome?

Thanks in advance.
