Version 1.5 almost done!
« on: April 01, 2008, 11:30:29 PM »
   I'm glad to announce that friendly detection as well as drones control is finished   ;D !!!
   I'm done with testing the friendly detection and it's working great! Drones control works also very good but I want to do more tests cause nobody wants hbot to loose their drones (at least not often :)). So I'm now coding the algorith to collect the drones if bot needs to warp out and leave drones in space.
  In new version the autoconfig is optimized a lot and when drones are disabled it takes only one second on my machine. With drones enabled autoconfig took me 10 seconds.
  Also extra navigation features are available when using drones. So you can have your ship orbit or keep@distance from the target and use mwd.
  So settings for drones are:
 1. seconds to wait before launching drones
 2. scoop drones before emergency warpout
 3. collect abandoned drones after em. warpout
 4. don't use weapons (just drones)
 5. orbit / keep@range / stay still
 6. use microwarpdrive

 
  ETA for this version is 2-3 days but I'll try to get it out faster.

 :).  Looking forward to this very much.  One question though.  Can you make it so we can orbit/ keep@range / stay still / use mwd even if we're not using drones?  That would allow me to speedtank while I rat  ;)
