NEWEST DOWNLOAD LINK!!!-https://www.mediafire.com/?iuc4zz5hibnib73 PLEASE DOWNLOAD THIS VERSION, IT IS MUCH BETTER THAN THE OTHERS!!!
(I know the editing is not the best, but it looks fine in-game with the rooms)
The ship is probably a bit overpowered right now, so any suggestions would be welcomed
Here is a pic in the hanger:
And finally, here is a download:
Here I will post all subsequent versions until release and document their changes.
Code: Select all
Changed the miniship image to fit the UI
Changed starting shield amount from 2 bars to 1 bar, meaning the ship does not start with shields
Changed the damage of the proton beam from 2 to 1, making the weapon much less effective\
I played through Version 2 once on easy difficulty. The start required a few restarts but once I got to the mid-game it went smoothly. I reached the final boss but lost on the third stage. Of course, I am not the best player. If you'd like to try this new version then I would highly appreciate feedback. Thanks!
Code: Select all
Reduced proton beam length from 30 to 25
Added custom sound for proton beam (please give feedback on this, it's not exactly what I wanted)
Added hacking and transporter room by making weapons and shields 1x2 rooms
Added a floor image
Added back 2 bars of shields meaning that you now start with shielding again
Changed human to slug to fit the lore in a more interesting way and to facilitate Mind Control
Changed cooldown of proton beam from 15 to 14
*update* changed sound on beam weapon to 12
*update 2* Stations are now fixed so that they fit the images within the systems
I am starting to feel that this ship is getting more balanced. It might need 1 more buff, so if anyone has any ideas i'm open to suggestions. Getting an extra level of weapons is useful early on because if you only keep the weapons control at level 3 then a tiny amount of damage can mean you have no offense and quickly doom your ship. Please continue to give feedback. I have to thank user stylesrj for all of the help he has given me. Thanks everyone who has commented!
Some rooms such as hacking, sensors and teleportation are impossible to get on this ship. However, they will still appear in stores. Make sure not to buy these from stores. If anyone can help make it impossible to find these in stores, that would be awesome. Also, if anyone has any criticisms (aside from the art, I know my image editing sucks) then i'd be glad to take it.
A bit of lore:
The Romuran people use their cloaking technology in order to help themselves remain isolated from the rest of the delta quadrant. They also release pheromones that make it impossible for any computer system or human mind to remember them after a few days and are impervious to sensor technology (thus why the ship has no sensors). The ship is named the Tracer Vessel because well, it was the vessel the "tracers" used in this episode. The tracers are part of Romuran society. Their goal is to make sure that Romuran people cannot leave their isolated society, essentially by hunting them down and erasing their memories of the outside world (thus why it is possible to attain mind control with this ship). Well, that's about it.
If you have made a playthrough of my mod, then please just pm me the link or post it on this thread and I will add you to the list.
Thanks again for taking the time to look at my ship!
