I've made two attempts at making Plugins. Neither have been working spectacularly well. My first was an attempt at making two new ship upgrades. Even though the tech level wasn't set that high, I had to use a cheat that made all the outfitts availible to you appear at this one station. As I had expected, one of them I could buy and the other I could not, but why couldn't I find them at any other outfitters?
My second was an attepmt to create a plugin that would allow you to do the other storylines after completing one of them. You accept a mission, then go to a random uninhabited spob and return to where you took the missoin. I managed to revert all of the systems back to their original states, and I made sure to get rid of the pesky little b511 bit, but even though the bits listed in my pilot files make me availiable for all of the missions, I've yet to start a new story. I had earlier completed the Bounty Hunter's plotline while doing the polaris, and so one I used this plugin, I was able to do the continuation of the bounty hunter into the rebels, up until the "meet with Dockmaster." I land and it says "you think you should find this off-duty dockmaster" but when I went to the bar he wasn't there. Neither could I do the Auroran continuation from the bounty hunter misn.
If someone could tell me how to, I'll post both of the plugins: they're not very large.
To be truly passionate about something, you must know of it either practically everything or practically nothing. Unfortunately, most people choose the latter.
