I was crossing the street last year when a girl, could be no older than 17, tried to negotiate a turn into the road using one hand as she was talking on the phone, ploughed into me at the breakneck speed of about 5 mph. It was surreal, she was going so slowly and looking directly at me but she just ...

Hey Switeck. Ah.. spelling error. Line 203 in mine.js should read if(this.ship.playerDetectedFlag) I am missing the 'ed' on the end of detect. Editing this should resolve that issue. Strange that I didn't notice it, but it is likely because I never left without docking. Good catch. As for the crash,...

New version available. This adds a management menu available when you dock at a mine. From here you can add resources, if available and view your owned mine stats as well as taking your gold when it is ready. The AI's are now added properly for distant battles and explosions, thanks be to Kaks. Your...

Oops. Probably should have been inlineFunction.staticProperty, and not "this". I'll test before I speak next time.

Beside the point though, as Arhuman has a better implementation there for statics.

The inline functions are still nice to work with though.

&&'s and ||'s can be tricky logic if you're not used to them. If in doubt, split them up. There is no harm in being explicit, and it may save you some paranoia while debugging. There is actually some pretty cool stuff you can do with functions in Javascript as it treats them as objects. For example,...

You uploaded a new version a few minutes after I d/led the other one. :P If you want a delay before launching the player you can use the closures (like typecasting in C): var trumbleLaunchTimer = new Timer(this, function(){ if(PlayerShip.docked) PlayerShip.launch(); }, delay, interval); Which is jus...

SMS is a bit dated IMO. I was a little shocked to find out that German phone companies charge their customers for receiving calls. That's what it was like in the UK at first, on the old analogue networks. Now it's all about selling contracts because people seem not to be able to work out how much t...

I've been playing with the mission screen and have been using recursion for a persistent menu with a quit option. This works well but is there a recommended limit on recursive calls? At the moment selecting an option which isn't possible simply leaves you in the same menu (or another call of the sam...

As a compromise between the simple and the complicated: an emancipated slave could demand passage somewhere. Freeing slaves might be a costly business. Especially if the "owner" caught up with you.

I think that would be possible if the ship.passenger property were read/write but it probably could be done outside the realms of passenger, adding the info to the mission screen or something. I'm not sure I understand where the machinery comes from, am I missing something? Mining gear stolen by the...

Oolite slang

Hey guys. First a confession: I have yet to read the original Elite book, or I was too young to remember and so I have avoided reading any fanfiction until I get round to it. I did read Frontiers fiction and enjoyed it muchly. With that off my chest I thought this would be the best place to ask. I'm...

I like the idea of police checks in stable governments, another way to increase variety. Paying slaves may be worth considering but it seems at odds with buying them in the first place. However, perhaps a new ship AI, "emancipators" could be added who think slaves are better off dead. When a player ...

I would have completely overlooked the compass, you da man Kaks.

Ahruman: Well, if you're going to be all logical about it... lol. Superb idea, thank you.
