Re: Maintenance upon demmand

Geez - No wonder it would not work for me, left out almost every step. Thank you again for both the update and the scripting lesson, much appreciated.

Re: HyperCargo OXP

Actually you should thank Spara, the creator of the Market Observer OXZ. He is the one who gave me the above answer when asked the same question, by me, about a year and half ago. This may be a single player game but we are all in it together.

Re: Maintenance upon demmand

The same one that is already sent when you do a Maintenance Overhaul would be fine. The two (overhaul and tune up) do basically the same thing so there is no need to come up with a whole new piece of script and descriptors just for the tune up. Is there a way to get the tune up script to call the ne...

Re: Maintenance upon demmand

phkb: Could you post a simple (or even not so simple) bit of script that would allow a purchased Maintenance Tune Up to send a Maintenance Email from your Email System OXZ. Had a look at it myself but my script-fu is weak in this area, never have done any work wherein one JavaScript had to call on t...

Re: HyperCargo OXP

Taka: Ran into the same problem a while back. The Trader Rating is a function of the Market Observer OXZ. The two OXZ's are incompatible in that the Trader Rating function has no way of reading cargo that is placed into HyperCargo and thus returns with the lost cargo thing lowering your Trader Ratin...

Re: Oolite Combat

Notepad leaves extra white space behind that can mess a script up. Give NOTEPAD++ a try. Simple learning curve and free.

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Welcome aboard Commander. As for your journey to the Dark Side the best place to start is with the Oolite wiki. There are lots of pages there on how to create your own OXZs. The best place to start though is HERE . Once you have the basics down and want to move on to the even Darker Side of things w...

Re: Oolite Combat

Are you dedicated to sticking with the vanilla game or are you are willing to modify it with OXZ's and OXP's? The mod route will solve this problem rather quickly with just a few additions like New Lasers, Multiple Lasers and Separated Lasers, Eco Lasers, Laser Cannons, you get the idea. The majorit...

Re: Right on, Commanders

Oh my - brought a tear to my eye. Also reminded me of my favorite bit from Emily Dickinson.
Because I could not stop for Death
He kindly stopped for me.
The carriage held but just Ourselves
And Immortality.

Re: Can't find derelict ships?

Have a look HERE for specific information about the Laser Reductor. The other parts of that page will give you more insight into the other aspects of the Towbar.OXZ.

Re: Can't find derelict ships?

Within the Towbar.OXZ is a piece of equipment called the Laser Reductor . It is available at tech level 5 systems at a cost of 100 ₢. It reduces your laser's power if the targeted ship becomes derelict to save it from exploding after the pilot has ejected. It works well although there is no easy way...

Re: Windows User Migrating to Linux?

Getting Windows 10 to behave like Windows 7 is easy if you use OPEN SHELL . It is a fairly self explanatory piece of software with easy to navigate options and possibilities. It is based on an older piece of software known as Classic Shell. The original developer of Classic Shell has moved on from t...

Re: Maintenance upon demmand

This idea gets a yea vote from me. Spent quite a bit of time a while back implementing a custom gauge into my HUD of choice so as to keep track of my ship's Maintenance Level. Having the choice as to when to have my ship maintained as opposed to having it show up only when it proves to be most costl...

Re: Big Cannon

Just out of curiosity once again do the following suppositions hold true. 1) If you make the suggested changes to only the Vortex shipdata.plist then only the Vortex would have Multiple Lasers. 2) If you make the suggested changes to the shipdata-overrides.plist in the Multiple Lasers OXZ then all o...

The Vanishing Point

This problem appears via two different OXZ's by different authors. Hoping that more creative minds than myself can find a solution. With Towbar You have a ship hooked up to your Towbar or a derelict ship hanging in nearby space waiting to be hooked up to your Towbar. You then wish to check the statu...
