Bug Reporting??? for 3.5 rebal

Don't really know where to post bugs, I looked up at the sticky but that hasn't been posted in since october(though i could be wrong, but i don't think i am)

Anyways, just in case you don't know these:

The FedEx Freightor, still has powerplant(or lack there of) Issues.
Fedex Freightor still employs the z (engine kill) exploit [hit z, ur speed gradually increases

bought more commodities than my cargo hold allowed(was in FedEx, bought like 583 units of Pharmaceuticals and the cargo hold is 175)

That's all i have seen so far. Please direct me to the actual Bug reporting place if there is one

The different number of commodities you can load in RB is not a bug. It gives more "realism" and reflects how much space the different commodities need. "Trade Lane Parts" are much bigger than "Diamonds" or "Pharmaceuticals" and need therefore more space in the Cargo Hold.

I don't care a beep beep about my rank

Hey, yeah, please report bugs either in here or in the thread I started last week (***All Rbal Fans***). I'm working like crazy on hte Addon right now. I've fixed some things, added a load of other stuff to balance out things.

I'll check on hte FedEx. The engine prob is probably easy to fix - i'll check up on it.
The reason that you could buy more commodities than the ship's max hold size sounds like the commodity has a volume less than 1.0 (so you could fit 2 Pharmaceuticals in 1 cargo space if volume was 0.5) . But I checked, and all commdities have volume of 1.0.
So I'll check up on the FedEx .. sounds like a wayward freighter
Check on hte other forum for updates on 3.5.

Heya zim,

Look where Datastorm tells you to look, then go "up" into the cloud that you're under. I just hope your shields can take the assault

Hope this helps.

i couldnt get the DS to show the battle ship, even did a total reinstall of FL and mod. no offince, but the wrath there was kewl. just needed toned and i beleive 3.5 did that. really looking forword to it, only hope my girl friend will understand how much iam in love with freelancer and the rebalance mod. lol

Datastorm probably can only read info for objects that are on the level plain in FL - not ones that are 50 Km above the ecliptic plane, as the Osiris is. So the Osiris probably doesn't show because it's so far above the rest of the stuff in teh system.
And, yes, it's sorrounded by a nice little mine shell Keep those unwanted Kusari Navy out of there.

And, a thing of note: The Wrath is not in 3.5 - there isn't a ship by this name in 3.5. The Wraith is a heavy torpboat, but it was more or less a trial to check out a new model. It isn't really a ship that was planned from the beginning. It might ne replaced with a better version of a Rebal ship that's still in progress.

Anyways, I have to beat it. So, later.

Uh, no, the Osiris is not above Planet Atum ... where did you read that? Whoever said that I guess hasn't been there! Okay, well here's a tip:

The Menhit Shroud is a dense cloud of plasma and ice chunks, probably mined, collected, and dumped in Tohoku by The Order to conceal top-secret operations. It is in the upper left corner of the map, quite a ways above (don't recall how far "a ways" is ;p Just look) the system plane. You can't miss it ... it's the only nebula within 90 or 100 Km of that corner. If you stay down on the ecliptic, look staight up, and you'll see a dark bluish purple cloud. Now get truckin'! Better stay on those cruise engines to get up there.

Be warned, it is not advised to plunge straight into hte Shroud ... The Order is rumored to have a pretty tight defense in place ... Be careful!

Let me know if you find it.
