Thank you very much for the latest Pioneer Scout updates. You are just brilliant Walterer.

Scout cannot be beaten by anything else in my humble opinion.

 

Thank you 🙂

Thanks Styggron    

 

My main concern is to avoid having a crash to desk or something breaks, in the most exciting moment of the game.

@sapog662 the strings (currently 161 untranslated) that are upstream of Scout+ you can translate here: https://www.transifex.com/pioneer/pioneer/ and they will be in the next release of scout+ (and pioneer).

The scout+ specific strings you can translate here: https://www.transifex.com/pioneer-scout-plus/

Hello @sapog662 

 

Files containing translations into different languages are in /data/lang All the ru.json files, contain the Russian language.

 

You can work on transifex as says impaktor. But the Scout files are very outdated.   Actually, no one has been interested in trenslate with Transifex. 

 

I'm thinking of some way to make it easier the translation, but for now is what we have.

Hi Walter,

it has been a long time since I was checking your page here, I'm amazed and happy you put so much work in the Pioneer engine for a playable game 😎

I have a much older version of your Scout work, but enjoying it very much.

I for sure look forward for your new release,

 

My best greetings,

XenonS

@XenonS Thanks! 

 

Almost every day I find a way to improve Pioneer Scout Plus, so, in my opinion, the next version is always the best.

I just discovered that in Windows, G26 uses the user folder "Pioneer", rather than "Pioneersp". This can cause some confusion if  you have installed Pioneer Scout Plus AND Pioneer Space Sim. Sorry.  

This, and many other things, will be corrected in G27. In a some days more, will be here with greats news.

Pioneer Scout Plus G27f is here!

 

scoutG27f01.png

 

 

This new version, like the previous ones, is based on the latest version of Pioneer engine with the latest mergers considered reliable and useful for Scout+.

 

Following the mode of continuous improvement, are many and important the internal changes to improve performance of scripts and to avoid possible errors. The player experience is a priority here.

 

Everything works better in this version.

 

But, the big news is: Tracing Jumps

G27fTracingJump01.png

 

Is a new device that allow pursue and catch a ship through hyperspace. Pirates have used this, for years, to pursue the player; will now be available to you at Pioneer Scout Plus G27f and new features will be added in the future.

 

Like Auto Combat, you can enable or disable this function by pushing a button. By default you can with the F12 key, but you can change to another key of your choice.

 

G27fTracingJump02.png

G27fTracingJump03.png

 

 

This device detects the jumps that occur in the vicinity of the player...

 

G27fTracingJump04.png

 

...analyzes and stores the data so that they can see later on a screen.

 

G27fTracingJump05.png

 

Just ask him to select the route to the meeting point...

 

G27fTracingJump06.png

 

...be sure to arrive before, adjusts the path...

...did you know this trick?

G27fTracingJump07.png

 

...and be there before it makes its appearance the ship pursued.

 

The system predicts the appearance of the hyperspace cloud arrival with an accuracy of 10 km

 

G27fTracingJump08.png

 

Now, speed up time to arrival date...

G27fTracingJump09.png

 

G27fTracingJump10.png

 

 

Now, the choice is yours. What do you want do with it?

G27fTracingJump11.png

 

Note: The navigation assistant (NavAssist) is now included by default in the equipment of the ship start on Earth. If you prefer to make manually the undock maneuvers and other assistance offered by this device, you can sell it and buy liquor. 🙂

 

I have not encountered any serious problems in many hours of testing. But there are many ways to play that might not explored. If you have any problems, let me know; You will help to improve Scout.

 

Like the previous version, it is a full version published in the new unified 3 in 1 package containing the executables for: Windows 32, Linux 32, and Linux 64, in a single download of 303.5 MB

 

 

Pioneer Scout Plus is set by default to a screen 4:3

If you have a 16:9 screen, maybe I should try this mod: fonts169-PioneerScout-mod

 

 

I hope you enjoy this version, undoubtedly the most complete so far.    

This story continues ...

Wonderful!

Great work walterar. As soon as I get word from one of the Pioneer devs about a glitch with the latest build I will include Scout plus in the news section of ModDB.

I have tested the correct functioning of the new version G27f in "clean" installations of Windows 7 SP1, Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 16.04   without installing any extra library.

If someone finds a problem in other operating system I would like to know.

It was so long ago that we were using LMR. I just had a look in G26f. (I'm going to have to download G27f at a friend's house.) It's a beautiful planet to start from!

Hi Walterar,

 

Just downloaded G27f to my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS System and I cannot run the pioneersp-l64 (which is marked as executable).  Version G26f worked fine.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks for all of your work on this terrific game, Paladin7

Paladin7 Hi, this is a surprise for me because precisely the development platform of Scout+ is Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, but surely find what is happening.

 

Please let me here the output.txt file that is in ~ / .pioneersp

 

In my time zone it is 23:50 and I'm ready to go to sleep, but tomorrow morning, maybe find the solution.

Hi Walterar,

 

Thanks for the quick response.  Here is the content of the output.txt file...

 

Couple of things to note... When I ran the Pioneersp.exe under Wine it worked but was terribly slow.  When I ran Pioneersp-l64 it did nothing.  When I tried to execute Pioneersp-l64 in a terminal, I received a message that the command was not found.  Hope this helps...

@Paladin7 It seems to have a permission problems, or misspelling name of the file.

 

Set permissions, execution, read  and writing for all

 

Renames pioneersp-l64 to pioneersp

 

Try running it from terminal making sure you're in the correct folder, and type this exactly:

 

./pioneersp

 

(. (Dot) / (slash) pioneersp) and tell me what happened.

@Geraldine Conversion seems to have multicolored mountains and glaciers, is really a beautiful planet.

 

The guys ModDB have exhausted the stock. I must make more Scouts.   

 

 Thank for your job, my great friend!

Hi Walterar,

 

Here is what happened when I followed your directions...

 

x@x-Dell-XPS420:~/Documents/PioneerSP-G27F$ ./pioneersp

./pioneersp: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `CXXABI_1.3.8' not found (required by ./pioneersp)

./pioneersp: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.20' not found (required by ./pioneersp)

 

Hope this helps in getting to the bottom of the problem, really missing this terrific game...

 

Best

@Paladin7 I should have foreseen this, sorry.  :O

 

To maintain compatibility with Pioneer engine you should install this:

 

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install g++-4.9

 

Tell me if it work.

Great job done again!

 

I played the 27 version a moment ago, and discover that once I save a game, the option to select anything on the Billboard is gray, so not able to choose a mission or other stuff.

And if my ship need repair or maintenance for hyperdrive, can not either make the selection.

 

Do I need a specific pacth for my computer or reinstall will do the trick?

 

I played with and older version before, the 23f.

 

Thank. for any come back.

 

Windows 7 pro, 64 bit.... if I forgot something please ask me...

[attachment=3425:Billboard.JPG] after initial save, done nothing in the game, except saving it.

 

Walterar - Look the clock, maybe you should turn the pause off   🙂

 

You kidding! You're right, stupid I was.... sorry. I destroy old save game and reinstalled... You know too well your stuff, thank!
