The total damage potential, yes, is a good idea. I thought about it before but forgot. :) Added as issue 162 (https://github.com/E...lsml/issues/162)

Where would you see per weapon heat/second ? In the tooltip on the left hand side you can see damage/heat and heat/second. Also the graph conveys this, kind of. How would you like to see this information?

I'm planning such a section but I haven't figured out how to display it smartly yet... :D Well actually I'm planning to integrate it with the items list in some clever way but still figuring out how I want it.

I thought something like a total breakdown with some graphical comparison, like this?

edit: hmm, seems I forgot total damage potential as well, but there is an extra collumn next to ammo - seconds.. ;-)

It would also be cool if you could calculate damage potential and damage per second according to your own accuracy stats. For instance, 60% accuracy with U/AC5 gives DPS of 2.

TL;DR summary: If you want to help me or to re-assure the survival of the project. Contribute some of your time instead, even if you're not a programmer there are other things you probably can do. ;) If you on the other hand really want to give me something for my work; I have an Amazon wish list for that purpose, see entry 4 in the FAQ here: https://github.com/E...k/lsml/wiki/FAQ .

I think I have some ideas now I'm working on getting them into 2.0 some time during winter/spring next year. I'm going to be hospitalized over christmas/new-year :\

Thanks Nlcon, l think it would be a good idea to show the lsml:// part of the link, otherwise it's difficult to identify it as a link. Also I think that it should be possible to copy and paste the full link instead of cutting off the protocol part, just to make it easier for the user. Other than that it looks cool, I hope it takes off :D I'll add it as a link when I get home from the hospital editing forum posts with a tablet is a pain lol!

Hello Li Song,

im sorry to inform that Invision Power has limitations on how to view Arbitrary URL Code and when it will be executed.

As soon as the Lsml:// part is shown the URL is Brocken! Ive tried multiple approaches to find a solution that is easy to use.

(MediaTag does not work since it looks for http:// and nothing else and it would not phrase it to a click-able link)

The BBCode would do that but as soon as the LSML:// is inserted the link is unusable and would not execute LSML as intended.

I'm still looking to find a solution but maybe Invision Power Suite 4.0 has a fix for that. :)

Best regards

Eli. aka LordNIcon

That sucks :/ Frankly there are so many protocols out there besides the basic ftp http and mailto like: spotify://, slurl://, lsml://, magnet:// . Honestly I think the correct solution is for infiniboards and any other software to correctly identify arbitrary uris as links, well one can dream...

For our forum at credditmwo.com I hacked the forum source to accept lsml:// I can share those changes I made later if they're of any help. I'm not sure what is based on.

Any way, I'm planning a trampoline page to get rid of the problem. I just need to host it somewhere.

@Jun Watarase
LSML is designed to stay out of your way and not ask stupid questions.

As I think you already noticed, the garage contains multiple mechs. The last used garage is opened automatically when you start the program and your currently open garage is saved automatically when you close the program. Unless you're dealing with multiple garages, you rarely need to use the garage->xxx menu options.

If you want to open the mechs in the currently open garage, just expand the "Garage" folder in the left hand side browser panel.

I hope this helps.

I think theres a bit of confusion here because you use two different garage terms. Theres the one saved to a particular file and the one that goes into drop down menu on the left...

Is there a reason why the ingame mech lab heat efficiency is different from the one in your mech lab? The numbers do not match up even if you remove heat efficiencies from your mech lab (the numbers in your lab are always higher).

I believe that the confusion is on your end, the two garage terms you refer to are the same thing. The garage on the tree view on the left is the contents of the garage file. Lsml will save and open the garage file automatically, you don't need to worry about anything. Your mechs will always be on that menu on the left.

The in game heat efficiency shows you a number that no one really knows what it means other than higher is better. My lab shows you different numbers that have inherent meaning. The cooling efficiency is how much of your heat generation you can dissipate. Anything larger than 100% means that you can not overheat (unless you're on caustic or another very hot map) 50% means that you can only dissipate half of your generated heat, so to avoid overheating you need to throttle your rate of fire to half. The in game number is entirely unrelated and tells you nothing of how much you can fire.

And merry Christmas !

I don't believe your numbers are accurate because with coolrun/heat containment, my TDR-5SS with 6 med lasers and 22 double heatsinks takes about 33 seconds to overheat (timed with a stop watch) on HPG manifold, which IIRC is a cold map. Unless PGI screwed up and made it a heat neutral map....

The HPG manifold is actually quite close to 0°C (in giant stompy robots terms), compared to frozen city which is -85°C. See here: http://mwomercs.com/...ps/hpg-manifold

Also PGI got the temperature about right, space is cold but it is vacuum so it actually acts as insulation to a degree, similarly to a thermos. See: http://imagine.gsfc....ers/970603.html

For your setup, my lab say 32.7s to overheat, you measured 33. That's within the human margin of error when using a stopwatch. I say it's pretty accurate.
