Re: Eye candy OXZ's?

Also, there was talk of replacing the native nav buoy with mine (if I changed the license). I'm still open to that and am willing to turn nav bouy over to whatever license is required if there's interest from the core devs. The fad of folks gumballing other dev's work seems to have died away, so I'...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Does Aldiss's Greybeard count? I'll allow that one. It was triggered by a bomb, but not during a war. So that's two. The Wind from Nowhere That's three. World War Z Triggered by a virus, so that's in. Four. The Whilte Plague by Frank Herbert? I'm not sure this one counts, as the virus only hits 3 c...

Fallen Angels by Niven, Pournelle, and Flynn?
New Ice Age? Yeah, I think that counts. That's one.

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Oh well, keeping with the John Christopher theme... One of his books, "The Death of Grass" is the story of a mutated virus that destroys all grass (wheat, barley, etc), plunging the world into chaos/anarchy. So, lets have 5 other books/movies/etc where all or part of the story revolves around a glob...

Re: [WIP] GalCop Missions

Thanks for the bug report, gilhad. I’ll confirm it and post an update. Thanks again for keeping us entertained. You’re welcome! During the forum downtime this mission was run by me very successfully with a large number of credits as a reward. Do you think the risk/reward balance was about right for ...

Re: Known errors: a summary

Bug/manifest.plist (should include Griff Alloys and Wreckage, as with other Griff ships?) Not required in this case. There is no "script" definition in the shipdata, which is where the link to alloys and wreckage comes in. Escort Pack/manifest.plist (relationship with Escort Formations?) No relatio...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Would the "Space Quest" game series count? The player character in that series was, coincidentally, "Roger Wilco".

Re: hate it so much

I'm sorry your first impressions of the game haven't been good. Oolite is a hard game at the start - you're in an under-equipped ship in a dangerous galaxy that doesn't consider you special. Can I encourage you to read these tips on combat ? They can really help, especially in the early stages of th...

Re: (WIP) Coyote's Run mission pack v2.0

Start a jump to a destination (and it should be clear from other information what that destination is). Then, just as you’re about to enter hyperspace, pull back on your stick and hold it there. If you time it right, the hyperspace colours should be different.

Re: (WIP) Hermitage

At the main station, the hermit configuration button seems to be inoperable. In the hermit’s market, you are not charged for buying but are paid for selling. The adder has a single plume rather than two. Version 0.3 should fix all those issues. Available for download now through the same link above...

Downloaded, will run a test on the weekend. Btw phkb, from where you got the Adder and the Sidewinder ? Gsagostinho's textures are easy enough to identify. :lol:
Perhaps not that easy! The Adder is from Gsagostinho's Adder pack. The SIdewinder comes from the ZGrOovy Variety pack.

I had Snoopers but deleted it because it has now been superseded by GNN. Bloomberg now won't work.
Has there been an update to Bloomberg to enable it to run with GNN instead of Snoopers?
Version 2.7 now available from the download manager, with GNN as the requirement.
