Re: Updating the wiki mission scripting tutorial

No, as you've no doubt noticed there's plenty of obsolete code examples on the wiki, because we've changed how things are done, how modules are imported, etc. However, the code that pioneer runs on is always valid (ehum, except when there's bugs in them). Either way, it's good to point a reader to m...

Re: Updating the wiki mission scripting tutorial

Btw, wiki code examples and such will sooner or later become obsolete.

I'd advice to add to the modding wiki, to encourage the student to look at simple modules we have, like the Advice module, 100 lines of code. then look at DonateToCranks for some menu interactions, and DeliverPackage for missions.

Re: Updating the wiki mission scripting tutorial

We have onGameStart, and plenty of other, like onShipFiring, see list of all events in margin here:

https://codedoc.pioneerspacesim.net/#LuaClass:Event

You could just add a note (and test that it is true): message will be shown next time player initiates docking / landing.

Re: Updating the wiki mission scripting tutorial

This is not just an artifact of "onShipDocked" event not being triggered if starting a new game with ship already docked? (I beleive that change was made "recently")

Anyway, I applaude the effort of bringing the wiki more up to date

Re: New Settlement Sizes

I doubt anyone will take time and read the code dump you did, and it's not clear what the current status in master is that you want to change, nor what the aim is beyond "make it better" / population depend on colony age? And another system, Epsilon Eridani: 1. My version, population of 11...

Re: New Settlement Sizes

so you'll be more likely to see Megaloposis's of millions on older colony worlds, as opposed to the frontier, where you will see plenty of fresh encampments, 1. Granted. As long as not zero probability for big cities on the frotiner. There can still be new cities that grow explosively, due to being...
