Default Being able to see yourself in the BBS

I think that it should be scripted in so that people can see their names (and the names of other developers of this mod) in some random BBS story, i.e. something could be used like this for a story in a BBS somewhere:

Graceburn Technologies to Unveil New M1 Ship Class

Daniel Graceburn, founder and CEO of Graceburn Biotechnologies, recently made it public that he has been working on a prototype light M1 Carrier Frigate, and that he will be unveiling the first ship in Argon Prime at the Federal Argon Shipyard Alpha. An exact date is unsure of at the moment, but wherever it is, IBC news will be there!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Or maybe something more like:

A New Sector for the Argon?
Early last Tazura, James Green, owner of Swahili Corperations discovered a new sector bordering Xenon Sector 347. The sector is currently being called 'Leighton's Revenge', but it is unlikely that it will become new Argon territory any time soon, as the Split who own the strand of sectors known as Tkr's Pride are claiming the sector for the Split. Stay tunned to KRC-5, the one and only Space News Station.

And many others like that.

What do you think?

Here is another one:
Quote:
Chris Gi voted to "Sexiest Man in the Whole Universe"
One of my favorite ideas! BBS-News! It shouldn't just contain messages like that. I'd like to see news of what is actually happening in the universe. I build a new station -> News: New Cahoona-Press opened today in sector XYZ. I retrieve the data cube from Khaak Sector -> News!

But I think this is a wonderful idea to immortalize the Contributors to this Mod.

It would have to take loads of scripting (if it's even possible) to see new BBS stories as soon as you do something in the game, right?

ive got an idea with BBS why not:

"The X2 Pandora DEV Team needs your Help! In their Laboratory there was Documents about an New Ship "Name is Top Secret!" And it got Stolen by 1 of the DEV Team Member pls Help us and Search the DTeam Member and destroy him!.
Im the Guy with the Stolen Documents and you must Hunt me im in a Asteroid Belt with an M1 Argon Colossus and with my over 100 M5 Fighter and you must kill me

I don't know for sure right now, but if I'm lucky, normal news only need a single statement. News as the proposed news about new stations need a little more scripting. But I've already achieved this for the upcoming 'Mission interface'. You get a mission offer via BBS! But unfortunately there's no possibility to accept it by means of a button, as is the case with normal BBS missions. I think writing all this messages is much more work.

this is a great idea, but my last name isn't graceburn, also i think this idea would run well with the 'race specific texts' thread. i'm sure we all want to know wat other misfortunes have befallen the team uncovering xenon technology on the desert planet

I know that it's not you're last name.
I just think that 'Daniel Graceburn' sounds more X2-ish,

BBS news are organised in different divisions. There's a general part not related to any race and segments specific to the different races. I've read somewhere, the general part doesn't work, but I'm not sure, if this information is right.

I would like to see a lot of new stuff on BBS:
- news ( that aren't connected to anything, just for fun and/or atmosphere)
- news that reflect events in the universe ("Heavy Xenon attack on Argon Prime" - "New Station in Kingdom End" - "Paranids free Split Fire")
- additional mission offers

These texts optionally use the specific "language" of a race. But first of all, there has to be many new texts that need to be written....

i'd be happy to write some up, love reading the BBS, would be great to see something new, i installed the X3 demo just to read it, but it's mostly the same stuff anyway.
