Re: Split: Re-scaling experiment

Aha - I am knocking together a Python script to do these multiplications in planetinfo.plist - I thought that might radically speed up your experiments!

Re: Split: Re-scaling experiment

But I will stop here, it looks like we are seiously derailing Redspear's thread. The discussion is indeed very interesting, but it would be best if it were to continue on another thread. I've edited another_commander's amazing summary of the lighting model and used it to raise Issue 345 as a featur...

Re: Split: Re-scaling experiment

Created a fork as a place to dump info and assemble PRs. I broke the changes down into 5 issues (on the fork, not the parent!) which I think can work more or less independently of each other, so you can have five PRs for better clarity on the sets of changes. (Or fewer, if we decide things work toge...

Re: Split: Re-scaling experiment

Shaders only though, so I should probably make the default a similar brightness to the core game, without any sun distance multiplier (unless we're going shaders as standard...) Maybe I can go half-way with the ambient light, for a dark but less extreme look than is normally achieved with a distant...

Re: Help building with MinGW64/MSYS2

. /mingw/../devlibs/gnustep1201/System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh That was what I needed, thank you. The question here is, why try to build with a system that is not tested with the Oolite codebase, when there is a single-download development envrionment prepared already with everything that is n...

Help building with MinGW64/MSYS2

I have MinGW64/MSYS2 installed and I've used it to do some quite complex builds of other software so I think the environment itself is OK. For instance I cloned libobjc2 itself and ran configure, which seems happy with all the dependencies. I installed all the clang/objc/GNUstep bits and bobs using ...

Re: Oooops ... how far can I go?

The only way to travel: it's a shame. I imagine the game could be changed (with some work) to allow allow a manual switch from one system to another. If so, then when one leaves one's ship running its jump drive in deep space and comes back, what, a few days later (or less than that if one is using...

Re: Split: Re-scaling experiment

Hello guys. Almost cosmic-scale long time no speak... Like everybody else I now have three hours a day I used to spend stuck on trains, that I can use to do interesting things instead! So I am volunteering my services to this thread... two of my favourite vintage games are Frontier and Dark Angel on...

Re: New ship: Any one able to make it?

Big ships don't work terrifically well with game balance (which seems to be why it's not in E:D either...) Here's a thread on the Andromeda OXP for instance - give that a try. If you like it, re-skining it to look like a Panther Clipper should be pretty easy... http://bb.aegidian.org/viewtopic.php?f...

Welcome aboard, Commander! If you're craving FEII-like Newtonian physics, there's always Pioneer.
And, if you download an Archimedes emulator, there's Black Angel. I think. Although I too may have mixed that up with Frontier a bit...

Re: Building with XCode 10 ... tweaks needed

Aha.

Code: Select all

src/Cocoa/oolite-targets.xcconfig
had it hard-wired. (Found it by looking at the "levels" instead of "combined" in the Build Settings.

Now can we have a little chat about the 1413 warnings... :-)

Building with XCode 10 ... tweaks needed

I had a go building with XCode 10. 10 finally removes support for the long-deprecated libstdc++. I am surprised to find that if you switch the Frameworks/libjs target, libjs will build - BUT you have to change the build target to MacOS 10.7 minimum. Unfortunately there's another setting somewhere wh...

Time for a musical question: this song references a TV sci-fi series - which one?
The always magnificent Dirk Maggs included a live version of this in the H2G2 tour a few years ago - so there's another sci-fi link. (Along with Adams himself appearing WITH Pink Floyd once on rhythm guitar.)

Deru's 1979 is also an amazing album for soundtrack.
That's very Philip Glass / Terry Riley / Steve Reich. I'll have a listen!

The Orb, anyone?
