Re: Oolite Wiki

For every ship, every equipment, every other item of the Ooniverse should exist a page with meaningful content. Hiran, as we discussed in our PM's, I plan on pruning the optional optionals on the Oolite Equipment page ( http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Oolite_Equipment . Are there any that you adde...

BigSur and Oolite

If I understood the conversation on GitHub correctly ( https://github.com/OoliteProject/oolite/issues/360 ), the new Mac OS 11 (Big Sur) renders Oolite unplayable on the new AppleMacs. Apparently Apple have come up with two fixes for Big Sur: (i) an update for XCode (Apples Developer tool) which wil...

MasterClass: How to OXP (updating SoThisTC)

Spara (the maestro of the markets) has very kindly offered to teach me a tad about programming OXPs through this thread. It will focus on updating the SoThisTC orbital station.

Re: [WIP] Ship's library OXP

Hmm. My first pass through the plist files didn't reveal anything startling. Can I get you to try something? Can you download this version of Ships Library: ShipsLibrary_Test.oxz There are no functional changes in the OXP - I've just tweaked a couple of characters and removed a line break. You'll n...

Re: Oolite Wiki

So that extension is what I thought it would be. I was even able to purchase it, then I was not able to activate/use it. It may be a hen/egg problem... Definitely is! You need a HUD.oxp loaded which supports MFDs (I presume that the Vanilla game HUD doesn't), and you need to understand the use of t...

Re: Thargoid War @ Biorle - Missing expansion pack wanted

Hi, During initiall installations of OOLite, I installed some expansion packs without really mentioning which I used. I am just in the beginning, one of my missions is to find a hidden planet close to Biorle. The planet can be found by a forced missjump. And when I did the missjump, end up in betwe...

Re: Thargoid War @ Biorle - Missing expansion pack wanted

I thought Galactic Navy was kaput. And no updates as no license. No idea about that, as GN was never of interest to me! I just did a quick search and posted the link - terrible, eh? I could say I had other things on my mind at the time, but that's no excuse! I thought you were supposed to be perfec...

Re: Thargoid War @ Biorle - Missing expansion pack wanted

The Tionisla Reporter thread should contain some hints that will help - good luck! And Galactic Navy is probably the OXP you're looking for. I thought Galactic Navy was kaput. And no updates as no license. Nor is it on the Expansions Manager. Galactic SatNav is on the EM, but I don't quite think it...

played Elite on a C128 home computer in 1984 ... Now, my kids do not need that much attention, I step back to the roots and found oolite. Perfekt, loving it.

cheers, lucky business and good hunting

Re: Oolite Wiki

Somebody also needs to tie in some of the Expansion's Manager's OXZ's with already existing unlinked pages in the wiki:

Eg: Target System Plugins, FPO Lave, FPO Zaonce, Extra Thargoids, Shaky Drive etc., etc.

Re: Oolite Wiki

Just to get back to the wiki, for a moment! Hiran's idea of automating the wiki will run across one problem: avoiding duplication of what is already on the wiki. We have a wide plethora of different styles for naming oxps in ways which deviate from the names on the Expansions Manager. Expansions Man...

Re: Oolite Wiki

So what would you like to see? Just curious! For starters: We still have some excellent ships from Griff out there, Bug, Gnat or Wolf Mark II for example. There are several laser variants in OXP's, specially Redspear gave it a deeper thought. All of that could be (very) easy implemented to the core...

Re: Oolite Wiki

Hiran, I'd argue that all this is in Cim's excellent Ship's Manual . Only two problems with it: (i) it has a low profile and I doubt many people realise it exists/download it/look at it. (ii) you have to pay for the MFD version so that you can read it in flight during the long journeys from the wit...
