=NEWS=
Starbase development is progressing steadily; the bartending delay has taught us to stockpile before activating such an assignment. We expect to be done with that soon.

We are in a recruitment period right now, so take the time to find others to join us in Unfound. Our starbase is already mighty and will attract many new members just from that accomplishment, let alone how awesome we all are.

=NEW STANDARD ISSUE *SPACE* KEYBIND=
The following should be entered into the chat window for all characters WHILE IN *SPACE*:

/bind Space "GenSendMessage HUD_Root FirePhasers $$ +trayExecBytray 6 0 $$ +trayexecbytray 6 1 $$ +trayexecbytray 6 2 $$ +trayexecbytray 6 3 $$ +trayexecbytray 6 4 $$ +trayexecbytray 6 5 $$ +trayexecbytray 6 6 $$ +trayexecbytray 6 7 $$ +trayexecbytray 6 8 $$ +trayexecbytray 6 9 $$ +power_exec Distribute_Shields"
*Incorrect due to chat window string length maximum - see next post

Spacebar will then not only fire your energy weapons, but also distribute your shields and activate any powers you put in tray#7. If you are uninterested in the tray#7 activation, the following is the minimum that should be applied (While in *SPACE*):

/bind Space "GenSendMessage HUD_Root FirePhasers $$ +power_exec Distribute_Shields"

You will be surprised at your added survivability with this addition alone.


Good Hunting,

Newsletter Keybind Corrections

Greetings Unfound,

In my haste to make a simple keybind that everyone could easily implement, I neglected the maximum length of a string in the chat window. Thanks to @Watto_81 for catching this error.

Therefore, please disregard the tray#7 bind that was sent out in the September newsletter and instead enter into the chat window, while in *SPACE*, the following:

Code: [Select]
/bind Space "GenSendMessage HUD_Root FirePhasers $$ +power_exec Distribute_Shields"
The main point of this is to continuously balance your shield strength. (Similar to, though not as effective
as, TacticalTeam.) This adds a significant boost to survivabilty without any adjustment to piloting style.

The Tray#7 keybind is still a good one, it just cannot be entered into the chat window. Creating large keybinds like that one requires saving your keybinds to a file via the chat window,
Code: [Select]
/bind_save_file <filename>using a text editor to enter your keybinds, saving the file, and loading it via the chat window.
Code: [Select]
/bind_load_file <filename>You MUST be in space to change/save/load space keybinds and the same appies to ground keybinds.


If anyone is interested in how to make that or any other keybinds work, message me and/or visit:

also if your going to use a keybind referenced to a file don't have "/bind"
so you bind looks like this

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1 (can vary on monthly basis)
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1100T Processor (6 CPUs), ~3.3GHz
RAM: 8GB
External GFX card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB
