Re: How does my Cobra's energy supply work?

Basic Handwavium Premise: The Perpetual Motion Machine that is a ship's drive engine generates Heat. That Heat needs to go somewhere lest the ship go boom. The Perpetual Motion Machine takes in stuff from space (Dark Matter, Hydrogen, anything else you might prefer). This stuff is then ignited in a ...

Re: [RELEASE] Montanas Resource Pack 01

Any possibility of your additional Escape Pods/Capsules/Lifeboats not playing well with ESCAPE POD SLAVE FIX by phkb? Have not had the time as yet to personally test them out together so thought the question could be asked first. If you, or any else, has played with these two OXZs working well toget...

Re: Tinkerer's Workshop - OXP tweaking for fun and profit!

What follows is the formula for calculating quantities of goods at a Secondary Market which is entered into a dockable's shipdata.plist entry. This is taken from HERE . rnd = -1..1 // random number in range -1 to +1, slightly biased towards zero adjusted_quantity = (local_capacity / primary_capacity...

Re: Orbital Stations

Two things about M.F.D.'s. First there is M.F.D. FAST CONFIGURATION which allows for all sorts of possibilities. If you wanted you could set it up so that the M.F.D.'s vanish when in combat giving you the extra viewable screen space you might desire. Read that wiki page as it explains all that this ...

Re: GalCop logo

Am liking the one with the stars but it is missing something that definitively defines it as the GalCop logo. Perhaps the word "GALCOP" between the tops of the two side branches? With that word being there nothing is left to chance as to whom it represents. Let us not even discuss font usage as that...

Re: Please help with Thargoid mission!

Head back to the station you launched from. Dock with it if nothing else presents itself. Updates should then be forthcoming. Reading the missiontext.plist inside a Mission OXP/OXZ will give you some idea of what to do next should you get stuck during a mission. The tricky part is to not read too fa...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

2010: Odyssey Two, the novel by Arthur C. Clarke, and 2010: The Year We Make Contact, the film based on that novel, feature a Russian Spacecraft named for Alexei Leonov, the non fictional Cosmonaut who was the first person to walk in space.

Re: A question of lore

Buoys - we are all aware of THIS . Back in G2 there was a rash of Buoy destruction going on. All types of Buoys were being taken out on a regular basis. The above OXZ replaced the destroyed Buoys in a very short amount of time. It even provided temporary positioning of a destroyed Buoy, and a tempor...

Re: Thargpoid's Target Autolock Plus - packaging error?

Re: Thargpoid's Target Autolock Plus - packaging error?

Remember reading that thread but did not realize until now what its results may have been. Again, such is the way of the interwebs.
