Re: Nordic Keyboard

However, I did notice references to 'culture' there. Again, within a culture I really could go with the argument, but... are we saying that the AIs would not begin to evolve as variously as the 'wet' once did? (ie. some good, some bad, some in-between, across the whole gamut...) The Co-operative ca...

Re: Nordic Keyboard

I could credit that if limited to a particular culture/planet/race or even species, but pan-galactically? - that's a real stretch. That's the great thing about fiction: it's very stretchy. Electronics leads to automation. Automation leads to AI. AI leads to strong AI. Strong AI leads to technologic...

Re: Nordic Keyboard

I could credit that if limited to a particular culture/planet/race or even species, but pan-galactically? - that's a real stretch. Not at all. It's that ghastly Guild - the gruesome GET gazzumpers - who whizz around the galaxy sabotaging any decent technology. Read about it all in SPACE magazine! h...

Re: Nordic Keyboard

AI in the Oolite universe is massively dangerous, and viewed with some horror. Hence the almost complete absence of automation, and what there is - docking computers, homing missiles - is very simplistic. Hence, also, the lack of robots and the presence of slaves. I could credit that if limited to ...

Re: Docked HUDs OXP

I used to have Docked HUD installed, but find I no longer need it with GETTER HUD, whose colour scheme is far less obtrusive than the standard one.

Essentially, Docked HUD suppresses most of the HUD's elements while docked.

Re: Nordic Keyboard

And, I've already come across sundry references over the years in this BB to the computers in the Ooniverse being a pale shadow of the computers in this world. Our cobras probably do have wires installed for flying! I'm shocked. Care to speculate on how that might have come about? (or is advanced c...

Re: Nordic Keyboard

Hah, ok, I'd guess the easiest way to answer your petition would be to include two keyconfig.plist files in the distro (e.g. keyconfig.plist.roll and keyconfig.plist.yaw) and "deploy" the chosen version during installation. You can also batch/shell script this for any post-installation ch...

Re: Nordic Keyboard

Yes, of course (what would vanilla XLite be without manual docking!?) I was not proposing to do away with roll - as you see from my key assignments, I just shifted it over to where yaw was previously, giving the left-right arrows to yaw, which in my view is far more intuitive and logical... For my p...

Re: Nordic Keyboard

Care to elaborate more on why is this missed in Oolite, or, if not missed, what would be its best use case? Oh, by 'fly-by-wire' I was merely referring back to my previous - somewhat tongue-in-cheek - comment about the putative 'reality' of the temporal situation with the Oolite ships: that they wo...

Quiet is right - the place is downright moribund. No one volunteers anything, or encourages... nothing.

Nevertheless, a hearty welcome back to the Ooniverse, Commander! At least the game won't leave you cold...

Re: Nordic Keyboard

Cholmondely: All your points are entirely valid of course. No real arguing with any of them. (And thanks for your further stimulating input re ET - it is more than appreciated, as ever). I''ll confess I never truly got into ur-Elite back in the '80s - tried it on the ST for a while but, again, I thi...

Re: Nordic Keyboard

FWIW, here's my reconfiguration (Latin American keyboard): { key_roll_left = ","; key_roll_right = "."; key_pitch_forward = 255; // up arrow key_pitch_back = 254; // down arrow key_yaw_left = 253; // left arrow! key_yaw_right = 252; // right arrow! key_view_forward = "1"...

Re: An other "ManagedOXPs" directory/folder and a test mode

Wouldn't that be complicating things a bit unnecessarily? (unless I have misunderstood your point). We develop and test our OXPs - at least I do - in the AddOns directory, starting Oo with the shift-key when we wish it to flush the cache for the new changes. When all is good and bug-free, we zip up ...

Re: (WIP) Elite Trader

You have been doing a great work with this OXP. :D Thanks - good to know that someone thinks so... It's mainly just fiddling with the code now - pruning away dead globals, substituting var x for ship/system properties etc. A sign that things have reached a point where it's time to start something n...
