PRPL script idea (and request, if anyone is willing)
« on: October 20, 2017, 09:42:22 pm »
Thought of something that might be cool.

PRPL Script: Assimilate

Some of my maps have you controlling the mind that controls the particulate. Having the abilities of the particulate would be nice, such as assimilating ships. If it's possible, a script to give you a ship depending on how many of the same ship you destroy would be fantastic. Let's say, destroy 10 cruisers to assimilate the ship design, adding one cruiser to your arsenal, but only once so as to not cause overflow.

Thoughts? (I wouldn't be able to make it though, no PRPL knowledge ^^;)

Oooh... tricky.

Let's see. JoaoPistori has a script to add custom modules to enemy ships, which needs to know ship type.

So a cut-down version of that, plus a counter and an AddShipToInventory - yep, doable.

I don't have time now, though.

Just need Locus to spout "resistance is futile" and we're set. XD
