Hi Svengali. I've been through your missiontext plist and I've done a small amount of editing, shortening the text where possible. I didn't do anything to the "\n"s as frankly I don't know what they are... :oops: I assume something to do with line breaks? Anyway, you can adjust these to suit if you ...

Hi Svengali. Regarding mission text, I and numerous other pedants people will leap upon any chance to suggest corrections to English usage. As for AIs etc., there are lots of members who can give useful advice. You can always paste up the AI code here on the boards if you want -- just place it betwe...

Thanks to Ramirez for giving the go-ahead for this ad -- and, indeed, for providing the central graphical element!

IIRC It was the software company who told them to restrict it to eight because they thought it was way too large otherwise. They didn't have the same vision as B&B. It was: they were worried that players might suffer existential despair when confronted by a billion-plus planet game. And, of course,...

...and the last entry in assassination_board_poster_title should be <string>The Divine</string> not <string>The Devine</string>. Regarding the crime list, people will be able to edit it to order. The easy way to increase the number of "real/non-silly" crimes would be to add more of them to the list....

Cropping around fur is a total swine (that hula-dancing rat on Direbea nearly drove me round the bend) but this is a definite possibility! In fact, there's not really much else to do to this one, if one assumes a mail-order bride service crossed with sea monkeys...

@ Rxke: add "screaming" to the image search and it gets REALLY depressing. :roll:

I think a ghost ship -- one that hardly ever appears (maybe even one that is restricted to one lonely system?) -- is a fantastic idea. It could even broadcast an eerie message. It wouldn't have to mean anything: just something that might get under a player's skin and drive them nuts trying to work o...
