Duskers Quicksaver Housekeeping Update

I am yet to finish Duskers, the sci-fi survival game where you must survive using nothing but your drones to scavenge other, hopefully abandoned willfully, ships. General atmosphere of the game resembles much of Alien franchise, where computers so ancient are running probably most sophisticated programs ever written known to mankind.

At any rate, the catch here is “survival” genre of the game forces you to die in rogue-like fashion. Dying in Duskers, while it will eerily remind you of the depressing reality in which your character is in, can be a matter of simple inconvenience. It makes the game real, but also it takes away the chance for you to explore. And I think the community knows this, henceforth more fan-made patch, mod, and etc.

Like I have said previously on FTL quicksaver post, this update is intended to keep things organized so that anyone else can reliably utilize it alongside the community-run patches and mods. There is nothing significantly new to the script.

How to Use

  1. This code is written in Python. If you are on Windows PC, please check python.org to download it.
  2. Download Duskers-quicksaver.py.zip and put it in the location of your choice.
  3. Unzip the file.
  4. Open any kind of text editors and copy the following scripts:
     cd “$(dirname “$0″)”
     python duskers-quicksaver.py
     python duskers-quicksaver.py
  5. Save the file as following name:
  6. Simply click on the start file and the quicksaver will launch.

Again, if you open the python script, you will see the same manual on how to get started, followed by small section of settings. You can tweak it around to see what would work best for you. As always, if you are interested in using a cloud to sync save files across platforms, all you have to do is to place python script inside the cloud folder.

Let me know if there is any problems or questions.
