selling ships
« on: June 06, 2004, 08:40:53 am »

I have a question regarding the selling of ships. what is the key command for doing so? the readme indicates that the controls for ship sale were changed to prevent accidental sale, and I am assuming that the button to do so is the menu-delete binding in the keys.cfg. however, those defined buttons, nor any other button on the keyboard (or any of my redefined keys) seem to do the one function I want. I'd rather sell those damn stingers and buy new thursters than lose them on purpose just so I can buy new ships.  

my hat's off to this port btw. my original sc2 disks were... corrupted years ago (little brother playing with magnet) and I havnt been able to play it since Sad but now that's all solved, haha

I don't know what UQM looks like now (still playing SC2 with DOSBox mainly because I'm not getting the same experience with UQM yet), but when I did play it, selling a ship involved removing all the crew from the ship.

You might try that.

Can you actually sell the ships in the original version, I seem to remember that you could, but in UQM all you can do is empty the ship of crew and then scrap it for no RU.

I always get the full worth of  the ship back in RU everytime I sell and pay the same amount when I buy.

The ship selling mechanic is different in UQM from both PC and 3DO versions.  The PC version had +/- ship selections in addition to +/- crew.  The 3DO version had the hangar like UQM, but selling the last crew member sold the ship.  This wasn't very friendly (if you mispushed the joystick, you could sell a gift ship and never be able to get it back) so UQM added a "0 crew" level marked SCRAP.  Check your projected RU level as you move to and from SCRAP - it will change in the value of the ship.

You most certainly do get RUs for selling ships in UQM; in powering through the earlygame, the Pkunk ships are usually 4000-6000 RU for the mill.
