Re: A Review of BOTF in 2021

In BotF it never did since there is often no visible decrease of regard until its too late. So you must cheat via saved games to keep your minor. And re-buying after loss of...

Re: Supremacy new release

Should I make it only affect minors that are members of another empire :?: (and rename it to Manipulation :?: ) Should it also affect minors that have any other relation with another empire (like Affiliation, Open Borders, etc) :?: This sounds interesting (both options) but might require the possib...

Re: Joker's web page is gone....

Has anyone ever found out for sure what happened to Gowron? I know it was generally speculated/assumed he passed away, but I'm curious whether we ever got any sort of confirmation. Don't worry, he should be fine. He just moved on and reacts only in event of extraordinary special cases (last time 20...

Re: Joker's web page is gone....

Sad to read this. But thanks for letting us know. I still remember using this outstanding modding resource for my first modding attempts back in 2002. IMHO it took at least to 2006 before AFC slowly started to become their spiritual successor, beginning with DCER's phaser breakthrough and Gowron's j...

Thoughts on fixing the AI Command Probabilities

Hi everyone, 'Unlocking the AI Ram command' shows some promising improvements in an ECM quick test (when trying some harassment shenanigans to pull on the AI, it sometimes rams you). So preparing a small hotfix update patch for ECM (below), I'll try to provide error-fixed AI Command Probabilities: h...

Hi guys

Hi guys, I'm trying to download and test the latest ECM multi-installer version to identify some minor quirks. But it's unlikely that I manage to keep up with all questions I missed. So please point/link me to the most urgent matters still in need of my attention. :smile: A first ECM quick test show...

Re: Clear explanation of ground combat please.

The first link in Gowron's post is broken due to a forum update. These topics used to be one but somehow got separated and some links got messed up: https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/onscreen/botf/viewforum.php?f=155 The right post with the missing data you need is this: https://www.armadafleetcomm...

Re: system location in build screen?

Unfortunately, I can't see any prepared functions you could use for this. You have to write your own code with the help of a GUI/string guy like QD/DCER. Subs you can use for reference or call: sub_446CB0 CoordinatesStarIdEaxToAdrEsi sub_4B6B00 Literal_mod 2 by DCER (the first from your link is just...

Re: Is it possible to reduce the speed of monsters?

There is no simple way of achieving this because monsters don't have map speeds and map range: https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/onscreen/botf/viewtopic.php?f=231&t=319#p34119 Using monster map-program 1 will force a max speed of 1 (AFAIK) and random movement, but I presume that's not what you are ...

Re: Clear explanation of ground combat please.

It's a quite intricate RNG implementation elaborated here: https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/onscreen/botf/viewtopic.php?f=156&t=1632#p22232 Based on this you have to calculate your success chance each time (e.g. final result 2:1 = 80%). One problem being to poor RNG engine in BotF. If you get a ba...
