hello, my nick is zerocool, the nickname is only to praise the character of the movie hackers, I can not hack my own computer so do not worry lol
another thing I want to make clear is that I am from Argentina, thus writing this I am using a translator, my name is on the wiki and contribute franco78 my theory about the behavior Shiva, is not very elaborate but has a foundation that we see in nature and daily .. Theories Shivan franco78 is called, would take that right placed in the category something I can not,
the point is that with a friend also fan of FS1 and FS2 are working on a mod, in the post capella in the year 2377, the MOD is not much but I think the story is rather interesting, knowing the limitations we have my friend and myself to do it in a while we use different tactics as this mod

While not all functions of fred and wished them a few questions about how you put the "directives" and monitoring the structural integrity of the ships, could also wanted to know if you have any further questions and if there is someone who interested in helping create the mod which I repeat is not the big deal,
could help expedite the matter, we are mainly re-textured vasudans some ships to create a new species, I and my friend did not know modding

thanks for reading
regards
ZeroCooL

Hi and welcome to the HLP

As a piece of general advice in FRED go help->Help Topics for a general tutorial on FRED, mine is in English but I don't know if there are any translations available.

for specific advice  for directives
in your event editor near the bottom there are two boxes, directive text and directive key press.  as a beginner directives are best set up with their own event chained to the event that it relates to for example if you want the player to scan a freighter have, please see the screen shot at the bottom of this post for an example

Structural integrity
Select the ship
enter the ship editor
MISC
check the Escort box, the near by box sets the priority of the ship (how high up the escort list it is) the higher the nuymber the higher up the list

Hola! :)

Directive can be used easily: create the event you want the directive to work with and then write the directive directly below the event list, near "Directive text".


Code: [Select]
when
   is-destroyed-delay
     0
     Aries
     Virgo
     Scorpio
  do-nothing (you may use send-message, send-message-list or whatever you want)

Directive text: Destroy Wings

Monitoring the structural integrity of ships is possible as long as the ships are in the so colled "escort list". In FRED, right-click on a ship, click on "Edit <ship name>", then click on Misc and mark with "Escort Ship". As you can see, it's possible to set a priority value which may be useful when you have more than 5 ships to monitor. A priority of 0 is fine in most cases you don't need to get worried about that for now.  ;)

You can also add and remove ships from the escort list dynamically with the add-remove-escort SEXP.

 
thanks for answering people! I hope to learn a lot and surprise them with my mod in which we are working for me and my friend

now I'll get to experiment with fred and understand English when I read a little but write if or if I need a translator because I'm really bad writing in English

don't worry too much about about your English, there are a number of people here who don't use English as a first language.

Hey ZeroCool, would you mind posting your Shivan theory here in Spanish? I'm sure someone would do a better job translating it to English than one of those automated translated. :)

 
Ok !
