Default I'm new here, but I have plenty of ideas

Hello everybody, I'm new here, but I have quite a bit of ideas.
I've already looked at the screenshots that are at the bottom of the forum, and they look so cool.
Anyway, my ideas:
SHIPS
UFO, a.k.a. Unknown Object:
Race: Goner
Class: Scout, M5
Speed: 600 m/s
Freight Capacity: 100 M sized containers
Hull: 1,500 Mass Units

11 m/sÂ?
Shielding: 4x1 MW
Weapons: Lasers: 3 Forward Mounts, Alpha Kyon Emitter, Missiles: Sting

Kha'ak Corvette
Race: Kha;ak
Class: Corvette, M6
Speed: 230 m/s
Freight Capacity: 1,500 XL sized containers
Hull: 45,000 Mass Units
Steering: 14.5%
Acceleration:
15 m/sÂ?
Shielding: 3x125 MW
Docking: 3 Ships (M5)
Weapons: Turrets: 3; Lasers: 4x Gamma Kyons Main, 4x Beta Kyons Up, 4x Betta Kyons Down, 3x Gamma Kyons Back; Missiles: Thorn

Kha'ak Mothership
Race: Kha'ak
Class: Mothership, M0
Speed: 210 m/s
Freight Capacity: 10,000 XL sized containers

m/sÂ?
Shielding: 10x125 MW

m/sÂ?
Shielding: 10x125 MW
Docking: 50 Ships (M3, M4, M5, TS, TP)
Weapons: Turrets: 6; Lasers: 1x Some type of super powerful beam weapon like the Super Kyon), 4x Gamma PPC Up, 4x Gamma PPC Down, 4x Gamma PPC Left, 4x Gamma PPC Right, 4x Gamma PPC Back, 18x Gamma PPC Front; Missiles: Hornet

I would try to help mod, but I'm on a crappy mac laptop, and there aren't any modding programs that work on apples. If there were, I'd try to help, but there aren't any.
Hope I'm not being too crazy here.

Cheers,
S

Edited because I forgot a few things on the stats.

Hi SWAHILI!!!, welcome to the X2-Pandora Forum!

Too bad, you're on 'a crappy mac laptop', but you can still help! Your ideas are always welcome and you could test the mod and the scripts on a mac if you want to.

The idea of a Khaak corvette never came into my mind. Nice idea! But I'm not sure about the weapons: 4x Gamma Kyon Main, 3x Gamma Kyon Back. This is tough... too taugh?
And the UFO should use other weapons besides the Alpha Kyon Emitter - they are hard to acquire.
And I like the idea of a Super Kyon Emitter and a Xenon Super weapon.

We haven't discussed the existence of M0 for the other races. We haven't even thought about it. But afaik docking of a M6 is not possible.

Sure, sign me up for official mod tester! I'd love to.
Maybe for the Kha'ak Corvette, it should only have Gamma Kyons on the main mount, and Betas on the other turrets? That seems like it's a tad more reasonable. And I have a picture of the Kha'ak Corvette in X3, I just have to search through Egosoft to find it.
Are there any custom weapons in Pandora? Because I imagine the UFO to have some nice beam weapons for it's defenses.

I'll keep coming up with new ship ideas.

Edit 1:
Here, I found the Kha'ak Corvette picture:

What do you think?

Right now, there are no custom weapons except changed bullets for some standard weapons. But I'd like to have some - which means we need factories for new weapons and a rework of the cockpit definitions. That's why every new weapon means a lot of work. But as I said before, I like the idea of special weapons for the Khaak M0 and Xenon M0.

Well, I never liked the Khaak design in X3 except one sphere like. But as you can see by the gallery, the Khaak get an insect-like look. I want to finish the design of the small ships and adjust the M1/M2 to the insect-like look. The corvette as I think of it fills the gap between the two design patterns.

Regarding the testing: first we have to translate the texts used (except you know german ). BTW, do you know the name of the file with the spoken texts?

Ummm, well, I don't really know German. I mean, my mom knows a bit, but I don't think she'd like to translate everything for me!
And what file are you speaking of?
I might be able to find it if I could know the specs of it.

The spoken texts are all in a file in the X2-directory\mov. The file in the german version is '00149.dat'.
The reason I am asking is the following: I use samples from sentences the bord computer speaks and combine them in different order. This way I get names for the new ship that are spoken by the bord computer. If I target a ship, the computer actually speaks it's name. Maybe a similar thing can be done in every language. Maybe I will ask in the English Ego-Forum, because I need to download this file somewhere.

Well, there are 16 files, and the one that's closest to the one for the German one is 00144.ogg, which I don't think helps you.

Well, I think this is the file I'm looking for. '49' is the id for German text, '44' for English. The *.dat extension is misleading, it's just a *.wma sound file with the extension *.dat. *ogg is the extension for Ogg-Vorbis sound format. It seems this is the file I'm looking for. Can you upload it somewhere for me to download?
