About[edit | edit source]
Players won't see exactly what this mod is doing (or that it even exists), but it helps modders and gives them a way to better add bulletin board missions.
It adds a new script
bulletinboardmissions.lua to entities that have the
bulletinboard.lua script attached. The
bulletinboardmissions.lua script has several categories for missions that it selects from, depending on the kind of station it was attached to, such as Military, Trade, etc.
bulletinboardmissions.lua script updates, it randomly adds or removes missions from matching categories to the bulletin board script.
The Mod Example: New Mission uses this mod as a dependency to easily add a new mission to the game's bulletin boards.
