Re: Hosting site for oxz files

The Elite Wiki itself can host download files, however there's a file size limit of 2MB, which makes it impractical for OXZs containing more than a few small texture files.

Re: Text editor/save file help

If you're on Windows, Wordpad is fine as a text editor. Do not use Notepad. Notepad++ is fine, and freeware.

Your problem sounds as if it could have been caused by some combination of OXPs. Could you post the first part of your latest.log, where your installed OXPs are listed?

Re: [UPDATED RELEASE 16-01-2014] Superhub V1.5.oxp

One issue remains: the position of the Superhub is still random, which means that it will be in a different direction and distance from the main station each time you return to the system. Do you want to keep this behaviour? If not, you could replace all the Math.random() inside the this.spawnHub -f...

Re: Basic game environment stats

The information is also completely available on the Oolite Reference Sheet (page 3, both), which (I believe) is nowadays even shipped together with the game. Thus it shouldn't be hard to come by.

Not for a station, but those who have played through Cataclysm OXP will maybe remember the shape. Only a little BIGGER! :wink:

Re: Help us make Oolite more immersive!

Perhaps an idea for an OXP: what if one could buy that on the black market? For some bunch of credits one could view a snapshot of the market prices in a system BUT no guarantee it is "fresh". Sounds like a great idea! Technically, the whole market (which included the prices) is only generated when...

Re: I need help with the Star Wars Ships oxp

Funny how things like this happen when there is no standardized scale ... Nope. Things like this happen when ship designers ignore the standardized scale (which may happen out of ignorance, or even willfully; one never knows). The standardized scale is (and was already in 2006) given through the si...

Re: Cataclysm.oxp (1.1) now available

Hi Falcon777, the OXP is also broken in itself, because I've never gotten around to updating it to make it work with the most recent versions of Oolite. I think there aren't even that many fixes needed to make it work somehow (some scripting commands are no longer understood by Oolite and need to be...

Re: About parallax, off-centre viewpoints and weapons, again

I think the answer is much more simple: just the normal view distortion that you get in every view. The same one that lets a planet or sun appear to be elongated and stretched when it's close to the screen border.
