This is not an area to debate the pros and cons of proposed features. It is an area for people to suggest new features for either TW or TWGS. I will either add the proposed feature to my planned features list, or explain my reasons for passing on the feature at this time. Features added to the list can be voted on so I can gauge people's interest.

Unread post TransWarp
I was reading another thread and found my self wondering about something. You can restrict a ship to Density scanner or D/H but there is no setting to force a ship to only be Twarp 1 or 1/2. Is there some logic why or is it simply because no one ever ask?

There are problems with these costings. The T-Warp Upgrade cost is based on a 2 byte Integer (0 to 65535 - while Tedit limits you to 50000 but anyone with a bit of skill can change this with a Hex Editor), which throws T-Warp upgrade pricing out of line. Back in the old days people actually used Basic T-Warp some times. Now no one uses it, but with the increased costs it might come back into use.

Seems like an oversight. The game could certainly support that, but there isn't a menu item to do it, I guess.

I think the options should be None, TWarp I or Both, but not TWarp II. I don't think it makes much sense to only allow a TWarp II unit, does it?

No that's what I meant I just didn't convey it very well... :)

Or did my wife request you to call me out on this...she claims I do this same thing all the time. :lol:

No, I was honestly asking for input. What makes more sense, allowing only those three options, or also allowing a ship to carry just the Type II? I wasn't sure if that was something I should make an assumption about.

There is really no reason to limit a ship to TWarp II that I can think of. Maybe someone else has a thought but I only see 3 options you specified above.

None / 1 / Both

I like this suggestion, and agree with JP's assessment. I'd like to make ship selection more interesting by providing some cargo ships with twarp, and I'd like to limit them to Type I.
