Excellent, thanks. For my part, I'm behind-the-scenes for a few days, capturing images, and then will have hopefully one last push to finish and deliver... until the 7.4 changes are added, of course.

I'll have a new version up probably a day or so within the release of 7.4.

Description:
Reply with quote

Hello, great work on the manuals they are really detailed !
I love complex and I have played it since version 5 so generally I'm able to figure out how to use new ships and features by myself or with the descriptions (that I read carefully since I had some issues with the evacuation system Laughing).
But I think a manual has become a necessity for beginners and since it looks like many complex players don't speak English as their first language it might be a good idea to translate the manuals in others languages with the help of the members.
So I'm offering to translate them in French, my English isn't very good but good enough to translate from English to French ... I hope Mr. Green.
Tell me if your interested or if your want to translate them.

@moa: I don't mind if you translate the manual I made. Just bear in mind that I have made a number of changes from the manual currently available in the upcoming one for 7.4.

I was wondering if someone could please verify that I have the meanings of skirmish options correctly. I know it may sound silly, but I am have having problems in game with the settings. I have looked in the manuals and not seen anything that could satisfy my inquiry


Research Sensitivity
Modifies the research point value for research topics. The higher the setting, the fewer research points you get for researching a topic.

(This one is simple).


Honor Sensitivity
Modifies the point values for all actions which affect honor.

Does this mean that, selecting option few, my actions will give me less Honor as opposed to setting maximum?


Recruiting Speed Modifies the rate at which new crew and officers are recruited/replenished at.
Does this mean that, selecting few, will give me less overall Crew and Officers per game as opposed to setting maximum?

Hyperspace Accessibility
Modifies the cost of hyperspace travel.

If I set this to few, will it cost less to Hyperspace?

Rank Remuneration
Modifies the yearly R.U. bonus granted by rank

Does this mean that setting option few, will give me less RU per year as opposed to maximum

Thank You

Rectuiting speed modifies the speed that crew/officers are regenterated after one of your units die or after you get more space for more crew/officers. I'm not sure which end of the scale is which though.

Rank Remuneration is like resouce injections, or like RU Fusion, only it's based on your rank. You get XXX RU's for having Z rank at the end of every year. The higher your rank, the more resources you will recieve from "Rank Remuneration". Few results in a lesser amount of resources given to you from being Z rank. I think of it as a counter to maintenence, as early on, this provides enough resources to cover you maintanence for the first few years in the game, but once the game really gets started, this becomes less influential.

OK, I'm going to post a direct link in the support page of the Complex main site.
I would like to give the manual for download (the Complex server will host it, no size limitations), Sagyxil, have you a definitive version? I need the manual in a single file, but if you prefer I can link it as it is now.

About the on-line manual I will link it, if you need hosting, I can provide it.

Thanks, let me know.

Beghins, I will need hosting please, I have a very limited plan, and the current hosting's bandwidth is about maxed out (aka slycode.com will be down soon if I don't pay them more).

I have some more work to do. Can I give it to you now, and then when it's finished (added/ improved images, completion of modules page, etc) can I get you the new images/ updated pages to overwrite?

OK, send me the on-line manual in a .zip by mail (beghins@fastwebnet.it), I will upload it into the server and I will link it by the the main web site too (support page).
Any time you have a new release, do the same thing.
The same things for the .pdf manual, but I can do this by myself.

As alternative you can try to use this forum, you and Sagyxil have the quota limit setted to "High", so you can upload/PM up to 15MByte, it should be enough but just let me know if you need more.

Thanks for your work, Beghins.

Sorry, I had to bring down slycode.com for now. Its bandwidth usage maxed out. (1998.40/2000.00 Megs).

I'll / we'll awaiting hosting on a complex-related site - thanks Beghins. PM me if you have questions, and I'll continue to work on improvements locally until it's published.

Beghins, have you considered writing up the story of HWComplex, and having that in the manual? Heck, even the story of how each ship in complex came to be as they are would be nice. How the hell did they devise the Vortex? Why would both races suddenly decide they needed a ship class between destroyer and heavycruisers? etc. etc.

Question Heavy cruisers? There are no heavy cruisers in either HW2 or Complex.
