[WIP] Borg OXP

Post by RyanHoots »

Well, I thought I might as well make a topic for my Borg OXP. It's a just-for-fun project, so I may not release this for a while. But so far, it sure is fun. :-)

This OXP removes the Thargoids from the game, on the assumption that they were assimilated. I'm working on a script that will make the Borg attack the station, sometimes. Maybe I'll modify Furball...

Heh, reminds me a bit of one of the first experiments we ever did with normal maps back in the days...

I may even have the model somewhere in a forgotten folder on my hard disk.

Want some lols?

Imagine a Cube decorated with Guy Fawkes masks... It transmits this to you...

We are Anonymous of Borg.
We do not forget.
We do not forgive.
We will assimilate you.
Did you expect that?

They should be able to make you dock with them (if you don't evade them) and swap your ship for a rusty clapped-out adder with no special equipment....

You can imagine my dismay when I saw this after exiting witchspace:

The good news is that I finally found a weapon that is effective against the Borg:

To make it a proper Borg cube, you have to make it out of frangible smaller cubes, each equal to all others... let's say, 10^3=1000 units, from which a brand new cube would be able to fire up to (100/face)x3=300 guns at a single target.

There's a reason why a single Borg cube royally kicked arse on Wolf 359.



EDIT:
P.S.: 30Cr?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! 30!!! 30 measly credits?!? Impossible!

You know those who, having been mugged and stabbed, fired, dog run over, house burned down, wife eloped with best friend, daughters becoming prostitutes and their countries invaded - still say that "all is well"?
I'm obviously not one of them.

I've been waiting for this. Excellent. But can we keep the Thargoids in the game, please (or is there some switch, within the OXP, for that)?

I used the shipdata-overrides.plist to change the Thargoid's role to "unused". Theoretically, commenting out that section or replacing "unused" with "thargoid" should do it. Or you could just delete the overrides file.
If you guys want, I might release what I have so far... it basically adds the Borg to replace the 'Goids. And the only known weapon in the core game that can kill them is the Q-Bomb (and the JS console).

In doing so you've possibly broken at least one trunk mission (Thargoid Plans) plus a few OXP ones if this OXP is installed. That may be something to investigate and consider.
