Possible to abuse equipment_price_factor < 1

Looks like there are stations which seem to have an equipment_price_factor < 1... (at least that's what I found for the Kiota Research Station from Wildships OXP). Now it is easy to abuse this to buy equipment and sell it again at a higher price, because the selling of equipment seems not to use thi...

Re: [RELEASE] Towbar OXP v0.98

Sorry I should have been more precise. At all times, when I prime Towbar and activate it, it seems to work as expected ("No ship on towbar, Laser Reductor is ON/OFF"). However, it does not trigger whenever I shoot at a ship. My laser always destroys it. After I sell the Laser Reductor, rebuy it, lea...

Re: [RELEASE] Towbar OXP v0.98

I have a problem with Towbar: my Laser Reductor only works directly after being bought. When I load a game, it does not work. I need to sell the Laser Reductor, then rebuy it, and it works until I load a game the next time. I have quite a few OXPs installed, and I suspect some incompatibility with o...

[WIP] QTHI AntiZap (Alpha Preview)

Being harassed by pirates in your low-tech ship and just want to avoid the fight, but they are getting closer instead? Fear no longer: Quirium Tech Heavy Industries (QTHI) presents a new device in preview/alpha state. It is a weapon, but it is not a weapon. It is an AntiWeapon: QTHI AntiZap! A power...

Thanks Norby :-)

I didn't find this information anywhere, now it is written here for everyone to see.

Re: [WIP] Reduce Weapons Damage v0.10

When I install this OXP via ingame manager, Oolite 1.84 says it is not compatible. Is there a specific reason or has just nobody updated it somehow?

Re: Do NPCs use primable equipment?

Just out of interest, what primable equipment might NPCs use (in a way that the player could notice)? I was thinking about QTHI_Auxiliary_Energy_Generators_OXP . The light equipment variant interferes with other equipment (Witchspace drive), so does not do anything as default and needs some priming...

Do NPCs use primable equipment?

Hi, NPCs seem to buy equipment "available_to_NPCs", that's at least what I get from reading. But somehow I can't get my head around NPCs and primable equipment. What do NPCs do with it? I would guess that they buy it but if the equipment needs priming to work at all, they can not use it. Right? If s...

Re: Monitor attacks more detailed than shipTakingDamage/shipBeingAttacked

Thanks Norby,

that answer gives me the general idea how to do it, and opens my mind for a class of solutions I did not think about before.

Monitor attacks more detailed than shipTakingDamage/shipBeingAttacked

Hi, I am tinkering around with an equipment/mechanics idea (not decided yet). For that I ideally would need to know not only who attacked me (which ship), but also with which weapon, and on which shield (if there was a shield, that is :-D). For this, the event handlers I found in the reference (ship...

I guess in the manager at http://www.oolite.org/admin/ you can set the status to your manifest to "Deleted".

Re: [Release] QTHI Auxiliary Energy Generators

Question to those who have one of the devices installed (or are otherwise inclined to have an opinion :-D) Currently the devices do not "remember" their setting, you need to activate it everytime you leave a dock. This is to prevent accidental spending of fuel, and in case of the Light variant, to p...

Re: [Release] EscortDeck v1.5 and EscortPack v1.1

Hi Norby, I would like to propose another feature for the EscortDeck. My ship is equipped with the additional heat shielding. It seems that NPC ships do not have this. So when I want to linger around a Space Pizza I have to leave the Star's orbit earlier than my ship needs it. Sunskimming is also qu...

Re: [Release] Trails v1.2

Minor issue: the trails do not disappear when a ship enters a witchspace wormhole. Why would you expect a trail to disappear just because the ship had? Because they disappear when the ship enters a station, when the ship docks at my Escort Deck, when the ship dissolves in a cloud illuminated by my ...
