Re: oolites-saves / the other way round

Windows is in-game alphabetical, and I name my various (mostly forked) saves according to what they're doing or where they are. https://i.postimg.cc/yW65QDRW/Saves.png So on the AppleMac all you get is the name, date and file size. No information about money, system, number of kills, or legal status.

What is the status of this?


Was it eventually included in the Vanilla game code?

Re: Stranger's Roolite Essay on Economics & Trade

Part the First (lightly edited) Ooniversum. Economics, statistics and demography. To substantiate the accuracy of the economic and demographic models of the procedurally-generated game world of the Ooniverse seems to be absurd. But oddly enough, this exercise provides a good opportunity to think thr...

Stranger's Roolite Essay on Economics & Trade

I completely agree with cim's arguments. All 2048 systems must have enough internal sources to provide primary needs like food, drinking water and oxygen. I have my own study of Oolite economy model. It was summarized in document Oolite - economy, statistics, demography (PDF format, on Russion). Li...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

What is the ID of the Galactic Almanac?

I want to try it with SOTL, and need the ID to include it with the scenario oxp.

- What is the ID anyway? Is it the identifier from the Manifest.plist?

Re: [WIP] The Collector v0.4

Hmm, do I have that OXZ installed? No. but I may have in the past. Whatever - hiran 's point that it's a rarely displayed datum is perfectly fair. If people made more use of it (and therefore, it was accessible in-game), then it would more reasonable, but it's not, so it's not. Were "galactic ...

Re: Dictators 2.0

Why not "mainly industrial" systems ? In G1 there are 5 of this system with dictators, max TechLev 10. No interference with Black Monks so the temple could be at the same position and, to make this systems more interesting, some special trade deal from the orders. PM now lurking in your i...

Sorry, I missed this.

The F7 page doesn't. And I've yet seen no oxp's which add that information.

But the F6 screen has that information added to the top of the chart by the Distant Realms OXZ

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

That would be the sort of thing, but integrated with "state saved {filename})" information. And ... is that bounty data, or profit-by-trade? Is there enough data in the system-name (and coordinates, by (1980_source * to make a key comprising previous path and (some data)? What OZP / MFD/ ...

2) If memory serves, it was unintentional, during an upgrade, and was before cim's time. This one here , I presume. Do you prefer Cody's Box or Cody's Square? And what legend do you want behind it? "The dastardly villain Cody the Curmudgeonly bamboozled his software engineers to introduce a bl...

Re: Galactic Chart - what's the icon?

It can also be player-selected, to mark a particular system for some reason. Go F6/F6 Find Planet/enter planet name - that will put the green square on it, then select a different target system with mouse or cursor keys, and the green square will remain where it was. 1) How does one de-select it? 2...
