Re: Primeable Equipment MFD

Or start poking around in the source code.. . Watch yourself :wink:
Oh no! I already did that! :shock:
I envy the core devs with their keypress event handlers. I wonder if my eyes are turning neon green.

Congrats on first oxp :)
Thank you. :D

Re: Masslock Compensator OXZ

I think I would still want to install this OXP even with the strategy that I suggested. Travelling at 90 degrees from Viper Interceptors at 0.500 is going to end the masslock much sooner than travelling at 0.250, especially if they're not the only ships on the scanner. I probably wouldn't mind the m...

Re: Primeable Equipment MFD

There is a dark side to OXP development, though. It's when the authors rely on their obsession for their strength. They think inwards only about their scripts. Before they know it, they spend more time testing the game than playing it. Or so I've heard... ... I need to get some sleep.

Re: Masslock Compensator OXZ

I haven't tried this OXP yet, so my opinion below is uninformed. I've considered making the minimum value 250 rather than 300 but those viper interceptors are awfully fast... I think that's an argument in favour of reducing the minimum value. The Viper Interceptor is supposed to be a high tech polic...

Primeable Equipment MFD

My first OXP release. This expansion introduces an MFD that displays a list of primeable equipment in the order that it's primed and an indicator for the current selection. It's intended as a standard feature of the player ship's HUD, so it doesn't appear in the equipment list and doesn't cost anyth...

Re: New Jameson here, some initial feedback

For example, a virgin Jameson at Lave will find a 436Cr parcel contract waiting on the board. That's not bad for starters - if said Jameson dares to attempt the run.
Yes. I discovered the reason for the generous fee the hard way.

@TS13

Happy to help and I appreciate your feedback. The newbie perspective is very important when the game tends to guide them into the deep end of the pool.

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Greetings, pilots. My username is over there. I only noticed this thread after writing my third post on this forum. I do that a lot. Oolite is my current gaming addiction. My previous one was Stardew Valley. I have been playing the game harmlessly since the 1.88 release. I tried a few earlier versio...

Re: BGS - The BackgroundSet

Is there a configuration option to replace the ship computer voice with beeps, GUI clicks and so on? If not, could we have one in the next update? Please?

I know that I can just edit the customsounds plist (been there, done that), but... please?

Re: Hard Eject

I like this OXP in general, but I disagree with providing a ship that can have a long list of damaged equipment on board. That's a bizarre procedure for an insurance company. I think I would prefer a ship without that equipment and receive a payout instead, which would be 50% of the equipment's pric...

Re: New Jameson here, some initial feedback

HellOo Commander (first and last time I use that pun on this forum). I am new to the forum, but I have been playing Oolite for the past four months. I also played older versions of it briefly over the years, but I wasn't aware of the OXPs back then. This community has made a huge difference to the g...
