Please add a link to either this page somewhere or to each guide individually in different places in the guide. For example, the Starting Units guide and the Redesigning the Starting Facilities guide would go well under your Redesigning the Starting Units section. The Bay Door Management could go somewhere else.

nty someone might think i care about noobs.

Re: Lazy Newb Pack/ General help for Newbs 2 years, 4 months ago #2241

as per promised from before, ive added to the head post the *slightly* incomplete, but functional, excel spreadsheet for base design. all you need to do is copy paste the design into your own google spreadsheet, or excell sheet. i *might* upgrade it a bit too if i have the time.

EDIT: currently, im working on the True Unit Cost SPreadsheet! should be ready in a few days

Re: Lazy Newb Pack/ General help for Newbs 2 years, 4 months ago #2262

Behold, what madness Cyrus has wrought!
this is my first test sheet for the "True Costs" of a ship and its expense ratios / usage hull ratios
It uses an oolld ship design from back in the day for example purposes.
docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1DTi2eIqg.../edit#gid=1042807321
version .9 Alpha

how to use
copy the sheet to a personal folder (IE save the file as your own)
input data on the *details* list. not the actual primary "hull" data sheet. the only thing you should shove there is how much hull is consumed by each ship section
To Do
* automatic assignment of ores to the ores list based on drop down selection
* automatic assignment of hull maximum and hull percent ratios from a reference list of hulls
* Data validation (show Red highlights and yellow text if over a maximum hull partition)
* graphical improvement of data displays
* ship combat stat ratios

this is obviously not complete, and needs work, if you have ANY suggestions/advice, notices, errors (bugs) to point out, please Private or publicly message me here.

Re: Lazy Newb Pack/ General help for Newbs 2 years, 2 months ago #2289

glad to be of help. i dont really do much here anymore. but i consider it on occasion. i feel like the gmae needs to be remade ground up, but i cant find a team or the energy to do so myself.

Yea i am new the the world of coding i barely know C++ i was hoping to learn more and hopefully help in improving the game and work in 3D modeling.

Re: Lazy Newb Pack/ General help for Newbs 2 years, 2 months ago #2293

the server operator (SirParadox) is not very hands on the past few months. i think hes taking a break due to real life health/stress issues. as far as model upgrades and changes, ive pushed for those. a LOT a while back ( i was ignored). im not sure anything can be done, but if possible, you could try to convince him to consider your things. i could try to find contact info if you like.

I believe the deal that was offered to you by sirp. Was for you to be successful in a war for sirp to listen. Frankly I think this version of bp has reached the end of its life.

Re: Lazy Newb Pack/ General help for Newbs 2 years, 2 months ago #2295

so what do you suggest? could any of us really make a BP2 that we would all be satisifed by?

BP2 we'll be somthing to be looking at. I really haven't found any thing wrong with the current just player population and lag here and there. I think at lot the things from the first should be implimented into a second but improved. But it seems as if that is the way it is going according to the current Dev.

Re: Lazy Newb Pack/ General help for Newbs 2 years, 2 months ago #2298

SirP seems to be focused on maintaining the existing game as is, with some code improvement as well as bringing a few things to the fore that where promised by the original devs, but never provided. a full blown change of teh game (a mod) or a BP2 would have to be done by interested parties. i have a few ideas put into google docs...
