Re: Please someone review new user experience

even if I make this available publicly, it will still not be a representative sample of what Oolite is about. Hey a_c, you say a lot of great things there and i'm onboard with it. I have picked the bits i liked and zipped them up for a neighbor too. Posting those somewhere would be a little bit lik...

Re: Please let me target what I want!

Ok, the sloppy language on my part got you. I apologize! I've actually played this game for more hours than I care to admit and I have the sources for the add-ons you mentions and I know and use them. Anyway... Am I clear about the concept that what is -- is a long way away from easy to use, that it...

Re: Suggestion "flight-arrow-key-factor" "flight-arrow-precision-always"

Hey SR, nope, that key just takes me into the can of worms that is the missing full-screen preferences config. playing on an external/2nd monitor here. "flight-arrow-key-precision-factor=0.1" would fix your docking troubles for all but the stations that rotate the fastest. You know where that goes. ...

Re: Please someone review new user experience

Hi Cody - Thanks for approving my 'download' posts and the kind welcome. I understand the point you're making about what people should not be doing but I would respectfully disagree with the idea that users need to be restrained by more than a license agreement. edit to add: seems a technical oversi...

Tweak to hide the Towbar

Hello new commander! Thanks to your clever searching you have come across a post helping you to hide the lovely towbar from view. I'll keep this brief: 1. find the oolite.app path and put an AddOns folder next to it. 2. find the GNUstep/Library/ApplicationSupport/Oolite/ManagedAddOns folder. 3. move...

A Vertical HUD

A Vertical HUD. I play with <key>window_height</key> <integer>1854</integer> <key>window_width</key> <integer>1080</integer> and adapted the elements from one of HUD selector's samples to something that has not annoyed me for at least a week. It might save the next crazy person running a vertical di...

Suggestion "flight-arrow-key-factor" "flight-arrow-precision-always"

I'm a keyboard player. And, this may be an age thing, I need to play with the Ctrl-key held down while flying all the time because I can not accurately time the duration of the tapping on the keys i'd need to in order to ever hit anything. I fly using "flight-arrow-key-precision-factor=0.1". "flight...

Please let me target what I want!

Ok, this post may or may not belong in this forum. I'm posting it here rather than in 'Discussion' because I mostly want to reach minds that are so deep in the system that they no longer recognize what things look like to someone not having that conditioning. I may also suffer from a fundamental mis...

Please someone review new user experience

v1.84: when you start from a fresh install and install "addons for beginners" or "ambiences recommended" you wind up having to deal and fail at dealing with resolving missing dependencies. these are probably easy fixes, but the package manager should not be offering me incomplete packages in the fir...

Please update the wiki with these Keycodes for Numpad etc

From many searches I gather that I was not the only one to be confused and bewildered by the unmentionable link to a table of keycodes found on the wiki. Here I'm offering my current understanding of what one can actually customize, and which codes to use for that: /* from the source, luke! https://...

Suggestion: option '-nosound'

Sound/Pulseaudio is somewhat broken on my system (since module-x11-smp is not loaded by pa when you startx from bash) and I can not always reboot to make it work. Besides, even though I once thought it was impossible, I've done quite well adapting to 'silent' play. A command-line and 'hidden' option...
