Re: [Release] Clear HUD 1.3 and Sniper Sight for Clear HUD

Thank you for the appreciation. :) For target sensitivity, at first it was enabled... but I did't liked it. I found that sometimes is unreliable (I was able to hit ships when the reticle was green) and distracting. To know when I hit my target, I prefer listening to the laser sound. However, you ca...

Re: Extra Planet/Moon textures - now Additional Planets.oxp

Yep.. and just in case you haven't tried taking a screenshot yet, the key for in-game screenshots is <Shift-8>, after which you'll find the screenshots in a folder inside the oolite-saves folder. :wink: (Then use photobucket or similar to host/link to the pic) Okay, hope this works... I haven't had...

Re: Extra Planet/Moon textures

(Which is to say: to get really detailed planets probably requires a clever approach rather than just throwing ever-bigger textures at them) Real planets are actually not spherical but slightly ellipsoidal. Maybe mapping the textures on an ellipsoid could yield better results? I dare not venture an...

Re: Extra Planet/Moon textures - now Additional Planets.oxp

Oh, and to redspear - how rude of me to (almost) forget to reply - thanks for the details! I'll definitely give it a try :D Don't know that I have anything against System Demux textures, haven't tried them... But even if they are not quite up to standard (vis-á-vis Redux, Deep Horizon and Povray) ma...

Re: Extra Planet/Moon textures - now Additional Planets.oxp

And thanks everyone for all the advice on screenshots :lol: I have in fact taken screenshots and set a dedicated key on my multiple-key joystick already, but I don't blame you one bit for treating me like a total newbie :D I am. I'll try and get some nice shots from Gal 2 (where I'm at) and see if I...

Re: Extra Planet/Moon textures - now Additional Planets.oxp

IT WORKS!!! I'm seing Povray Planets, Deep Horizon moons and extra planets and a Zygo sky - WOW! That's brilliant :D . Since getting these to play nicely together is a bit of a challenge, maybe something should be done about it? Maybe some guidance in wiki or more sensitive versions of some these o...

And by the way, IT WORKS!!! I'm seing Povray Planets, Deep Horizon moons and extra planets and a Zygo sky - WOW! Screens please? ;-) "Its like he's talking to me, I just know it" (From Nemo's dad Marlin when he meets the baby turtles... :wink: ) But really, "Screens please?" - it must be some moder...

Re: Extra Planet/Moon textures - now Additional Planets.oxp

I kind of figured as much, with the effort you took :)

And no, I haven't tried the OOlite BB Browser Search Plugin, but I'll give it a go!

Re: Extra Planet/Moon textures - now Additional Planets.oxp

... no possibility for Gas Giants... Well, Povray Planets does have its own gas giants, but only as the main planet. It does? :o Oh, thinking 'bout it I know now why my surprise. I've been seeing Povray's planets on the F7 screen when charting a course, and some of them no doubt looked like Gas Gia...

Re: Extra Planet/Moon textures - now Additional Planets.oxp

Ahh... Sprites! :wink: Played around with that for some time too. Never finished anything either though... If i remember correctly my friend and I made a spaceship and did get it too blow up very nicely :D (Never got around to use it for anything though :roll: ). And yes Dizzy, now that you mention ...

Re: Extra Planet/Moon textures - now Additional Planets.oxp

Thanks spara I'll give Zygo a try for sure. About editing .js files...? (Sorry, its all new to me - the only programing-like thing I ever did was AMOS on the Amiga ages ago) What do you mean by "comment out"? / it's somehow different from simply "delete" I gather? Also, what program do you use to op...

Re: Extra Planet/Moon textures - now Additional Planets.oxp

Hi everyone And thanks for all your great work making OOlite look ever better. And cheers to Redspear for what seems to me to be an excellent idea - lets get the best of all worlds :D I have a question though, and some observations to relay also. Q first: How did JazHaz do this? I use DH (with its p...
