Hey there! I'd be highly surprised if anybody here remembers me, but I'm an old-school EVer from back in the days of escape-velocity.com who stopped forum-whoring in lieu of having a life back in 2002. Anyhow, I have a question about a Plug I'm making for Nova.
I've been developing a plug on and off for the past year or so, introducing 4 new ships with their own graphics, 18 weapons, and some missions to go along with them after the Fed storyline. I've run into 2 questions I can't figure out myself.
1: How do I link the 800x600 shipyard renders to the individual ships? I've experemented with Resource IDs to no avail.
2: One of my weapons, a gauss/flack cannon, would propell shrapnel at very high velocity at the expense of a great deal of energy in addition to ammunition. Is there a way to make one weapon consume both ammunition and energy, or is it an either/or proposition.
Thanks in advance, keep making that magic!
