Re: Minor Race Advancement

I recall nothing from this project. From reading my quoted notes, this code still reads the minor races tech levels same way as vanilla and expects vanilla upgrades in edifice.bst. And it's just first part of a discontinued project. I strongly advise against using this code (the post should be delet...

Re: Stealth and Cloak

I anticipated the 'free cloak' issue when creating the patch (post updated with missing notes form my ida-notepad). Another option for cloaked ships using 'Cloak' instead of 'Evade' has been added (same movements as Evade but they should stay cloaked same as with 'Hold'). And it should be possible t...

Re: how can we get 30 minors every time "many" is selected?

Sorry mate, lately I hardly read the forums due to running out of time before summer break. So I have to focus on posting & finishing some breakthroughs with AI commands. I will come back to MUM after this. Your problem here is a tough one due to the strange, and still partly unkown, mechanics of mi...

shiplist.sst Beam Minimum 'Range?' Firing Arc in Degrees & Trek.exe Phaser Slots

During combat, a ship is designated as "unarmed" if its minimum beam range is equal to zero. https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/onscreen/botf/viewtopic.php?f=208&t=79#p596 Apart from this are we sure the 'beam minimum range?' at shiplist.sst +0xDC is actually used? Same question arises for shield p...

Emergency evade during surprise attack

Here is how to change the enforced 'hold' into 'evade' when surprise-attacked by a fully cloaked fleet: 4721E1 mov dword ptr [ebx+1FCh], 0Dh ; set ship hold // 0x715E7 -> 07 'evade' 4721F0 mov dword ptr [ecx+54h], 0Dh ; set group Hold // 0x715F3 -> 07 'evade' 472213 or byte ptr [ebx+20Ch], 10h ; loc...

Re: Defiants ramming video

The patch doesn't change the AI ram code itself, it just removes the jihad restriction. AI has problems understanding fleet/group sizes. It can only determine weakest and damaged targets: https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/onscreen/botf/viewtopic.php?f=220&t=286#p3639 Also AI would not understand ch...

Re: Minor races and terraforming

How about a random chance / turn for 'magic terraforming' or building a colony ship.

Increase chance with:

- how few turns till current max pop reached (or start after it's reached, in BotF this is requirement)
- current bio or all tech -level
- maybe personality / habitability level modifiers...

Re: AI difficultly

In this situation I wouldn't worry about the 'peanuts' (albeit multiplied by income cheat), the overall strategy matters more.

Re: How often do the Borg appear?

Hard to predict since Borg are always based on RNG (base chance 0.43% each turn). But you can try to summon them using the F6-key (1:7 chance) :wink: Other limiting factors are: - difficulty level & minimum fleet requirement of the empires (default cube buildcost * 1.25): https://www.armadafleetcomm...

Re: Map Range

Shared bonus ranges still allow for custom (empire specific) base ranges. Just note that depending on the used 'F4 screen display fix' option the tech limit values for custom ranges might change by one (option A max tech level -1). If there is an UE interface issue, setting base ranges equal during ...

Problem persisted for more than a halve year, with updating bios and drivers not helping. At some point it updated again (currently ...
