I just wanted to comment, again, on how there are a surprisingly large number of guests that check user profiles for no obvious reason, haha. 55 members online and it looks as though 20 of them are viewing profiles I would never have guessed would be viewed. I wonder why?

I 100% agree about the Xsotan needing a truly distinctive style.

Hello!
I read to item 10 and I have to agree with all of what I read. I might continue reading tomorrow.
I might have the solution to your problem in item 5. From what I remember, pressing 'R' will locate the nearest enemy. I think you're pressing something like 'Tab' or the other which doesn't do that. Although, I wish 'R' wouldn't select torpedoes since they're so common that the 'R' button will only select one from the barrage of torpedoes instead of the dozens of ships sending them.

Oh, I almost forgot! since you use the creative mode, you might find this command very handy:
/run Entity():addScript("lib/entitydbg.lua")
After running, you can click on the new icon to the far left of the upper-right corner. Click on it to gain countless cool commands. Maybe you'll find a use for something like generating a turret factory? So many of them are useful!

Any update on this? I've not looked for any mods yet  so I'm hopeful but I'd much prefer options in game for those of us that are colour deficient.
Yes, I have news. According to the news page, the next major update will be massive and bring:
-mods in the Steam Workshop
-many more modifiable files
-modding guides such as a general guide, examples, "internals" guide, troubleshooting, and best practices (these are officially available in the Wiki)


With these, I assume that someone, if not a developer, will present a color scheme for the color-blind. Stay alert in the workshop and forum for such a mod!

Those pages look nice. I'm glad someone is updating the Wiki. Hopefully you will not only add information and guides, but also display screenshots for examples.

General Discussion / Re: Second Monitor
« on: June 22, 2019, 10:53:13 PM »
I wouldn't know, myself, but I searched for "steam second monitor turning on and off" and found this first-result steam page. https://steamcommunity.com/app/377160/discussions/0/496881136900226528/

Some replies (about another game and from 2015) that might be of help:

I had massive screen tearing too, it was fixed by forcing vsync OFF in the ini file, set the FPS cap to 55 (monitor refresh is 60) turned off AA in the game and set the card settings to override to max AA supersampling, also set the card to override game settings on tesselation to 16x. After that, looks amazing and no more tearing.

I'm running an AMD R9 290, not sure how all that will translate over to Nvidia, but good luck man.
Thanks Duder, I can figure out how to get all that done on Nvidia.

I did find a slightly easier way around it though by changing a setting in the Nvidia control panel relating to the monitor aspect ratio, so it's really copacetic now. Desktop is still really tied together well and the game is fully Zen with that ;)

Thanks again for your help, keep on abiding

Bro, you can't just say "by changing a setting in Nvidia control panel" and not say what it is. What was it that you changed? Please provide some details, bro. Thanks.
EndOfReply----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- -----
NVidia Control Panel -> Display -> Adjust desktop size and position -> Scaling

Under this menu set Both monitors to Full-screen and be sure to check the
"Override the scaling mode set by games and programs" box.

Don't forget to hit apply.

I met with limited success with this so your mileage may vary. Your best bet is to follow The Dudes advice and kiss Aero theme goodbye


Hope this helps! You really should just look at the page yourself or try my Google search.

I've read the first half and can definitely agree since we might be short crewmen as the boarding update comes nearer. Have to leave for now.

Haha, I agree with your post here. By the way, don't forget the magic word "please"!

I know what you mean and second your question.

General Off-Topic / Online Users' Unusual Activities
« on: May 24, 2019, 04:38:31 AM »
Does anyone else find the current activities of guest users and members interesting to look at but also very odd or unusual? If you don't know what I'm talking about, first go to the main forum page in order to click on one of the lowest buttons in the page about how many guests and users are online. Then, notice that there are (probably) ONE THIRD of the users viewing other users' profiles. The vast majority of the profiles aren't even active, lol. Some have zero posts--how do they find such users? haha

I didn't even know that there was a 'print' option at the top right of each topic page. I thought it would help me print on paper, but it actually made the text and formatting very plain to be digitally copied and read easily--or whatever else. Another question: does anyone use this feature of the forums?

Oh, dude, ouch! I have not read your whole post, but here is a temporary solution.

To refund yourself:

Thank you for the reply and the suggestion.

This is, indeed, a nice way to fix it. Unfortunately, I've been playing on a server. So there's no way to use admin codes like that. In other circumstances I could probably contact the Admin and explain my situation. However, the Admin has been absent for a long time and we've not been able to contact him.
:( Sorry to hear. Hope you will still have fun!

I second this! I'd love a first-person view from my little ships.

Oh, dude, ouch! I have not read your whole post, but here is a temporary solution.

To refund yourself:
1. Run this command in the chat box /run Entity():addScript("lib/entitydbg.lua")
2. Click on the new puzzle icon it generates in the top right corner.
3. Go to the cargo commands tab (2nd to last) and repeatedly click an expensive item, such as the War Robot in the lower right corner. Each click will give you 10 of the item.
4. Sell your cheated cargo. You can sell anything at a smuggler's post if you brand it as stolen with the upper right corner button.
