Re: VimanaHUD OXP

Welcome Gnievmir! I had an idea to do something less sophisticated with target image display but hadn't found time to try (it will be interesting to see if you used a similar method). Having said that, some of the other things on the HUD in your video go way beyond my capabilities... Looks great! I ...

Relationship between cargo hold and piracy

Not sure as to what extent (if any) that the following is already true... Shouldn't the size of the player ship influence the likelihood of predation by pirates? More specifically, the size of the player ship cargo bay could be an indicator of risk of pirate interest. It may be true that larger vess...

I am sure you figured it out yourself...
Still not tried it TBH, just too busy lately.
Thanks for the clarification though.

Also, it reduces the potential conflicts where two OXP's want to update the same equipment item
Awesome :D
Thanks phkb... and thanks for the example too :wink:

With a bit of luck I might get to do some oxp updating soon.

Re: Scripters cove

This version is tested and works, I just pasted parts of the code so you can see how I solved this problem. Thanks montana 05, I'll give that a try... I'd check the condition script for the laser (if one is specified). My guess is that you've included rules that prohibit the laser from being instal...

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Hi, I'm Hijong Park who is having a hard time to enjoy Oolite. I like space and spaceships, so I want to like oolite, but simply can't. everything feels tedious and frustrating... Hi Hijong Park. I may have some good news for you: if you don't know it already there are likely oxps that can reduce b...

Re: Scripters cove

Trying to change the players lasers by script. Lasers are an odd case for equipment in that they have a facing and so player.ship.awardEquipment ("EQ_WEAPON_PULSE_LASER"); does not provide sufficient information (i.e. facing not specified). So I tried to use if (player.ship.aftWeapon === "EQ_WEAPON_...

Re: Equipment Storage OXP

This is something I'd considered in the past (for my own ship equipment oxp) but never had the time to work out an easy way to do it.
So thanks for making this a seperate oxp! I haven't tried it yet but it sounds very useful.

Good work once again phkb! :)

In the next nightly is the ability to limit star and nebula textures to particular galaxies, providing the opportunity to make galaxies more visually unique.
Nice 8) Thanks :D

Re: On Orbits & Sun Distance

One other possible interpretation of where the witchpoint of a system is at...is it's in the same orbit as the main planet -- either leading or lagging it by maybe 30-60 degrees in orbit. The planet and sun of the system would remain in a relative fixed position to that and would look the same on e...

Re: On Orbits & Sun Distance

Suppose that rather than there being only one witchpoint that there were three, or even five, and each time you jumped into a system you were randomly allocated to one of these predetermined entry points. Very much different appearances are now possible and sunskimming could be affected also - we'd...

Re: On Orbits & Sun Distance

You are right that it will incur distance variations which are probably the most noticeable in the default configuration (like in strict mode), but I believe those differences will be "hidden" by encounters and masslocks. As for the looks, in the default configuration it already looks silly in my o...

Re: On Orbits & Sun Distance

The planet is set at a certain Z distance from the WP. Isn't the star also set by the same z distance (and then subject to sun distance modifier), just at a diferent angle? If so, won't the planet be alternately closer and them further to the star by up to that same z distance? That could mean (dep...

Re: On Orbits & Sun Distance

Apologies, I read that totally wrong...

I thought you'd said rotate the witch point around the planet (rather than the other way around), thus my talk about moving the witch point.

Re: On Orbits & Sun Distance

To me, the fact that the bodies are not moving while in the system is not a problem. Players are usually in a system an hour or two maximum, so I think the system's bodies don't have the time to move in a noticeable way. I think it's more relevant when returning to a sytem, for example as part of a...
