I'll try to think of something clever w/o Will Ferrell in it when I get caught up.  I think I'm coming down with something, so may not be a good brain day.


You are a gentleman and scholar, good sir.  Take care of yourself.  Stay away from those quacks in white coats.

Has anyone ever had the Script Box called #DECIPHER appear? This script box is in the area of code related to Probe Team tech stealing.

It looks like that's the prompt whether to try to steal a specific tech or just general techsteal.

I got it to appear by changing jnz terranx_.005A01E6 at address 005A0123 to je terranx_.005A01E6. However, when you are successful with the second option (a specific target) it still only gives you a single technology to choose from. Also, if you select the second option, you get nothing if the other faction has no new technology. These issues are bugs that need to be corrected.

If you can write an appropriate procedure modification to correct them...

The second option only lets you choose from the technologies that you have prerequisites for. The first option either takes a random technology or the faction's world map if no techs are found. Which is more appropriate?

I think the whole idea is to give a choice, probably with a higher failure rate if you want to choose a tech.

You are correct the second option has a lower success and survival rate. My question is: Should the first option only potentially allow a faction to recieve technologies that they have the appropriate prerequisites for? I noticed that the second option functions in this manner currently.

I think it makes more sense for both to allow even techs that the faction lacks the prereqs for.

I also considered Tobias - and may yet if I find a shot of him in a lab coat.

* Random quote

The sea is everything. It covers seven-tenths of the globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert where a man is never alone, for he can feel life quivering all about him. The sea is only a receptacle for all the prodigious, supernatural things that exist inside it; it is only movement and love; it is the living infinite.
~Jules Verne ’20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’, Datalinks
