In-flight communication

I don't know if anybody else has yet had this wish. I mentioned it in one of the threads in the general discussion, but there was no response to it: It would be very cool and give a lot of opportunities for scripting missions, if the in-flight-communication in Oolite could be enhanced. Right now the...

Hi, Frunobulax! First of all your guess is correct: the reputation does store your cargo and passenger contracts. They are handled in exactly the same way. In the beginning both "unknown"-counters are set to 7, the rest to 0. For every successfull delivery the "fulfilled"-counter is increased by 1, ...

Sorry to hear of your dropping out! Sad for me, because I'm sure in the course of developing Equilibrium.oxp I'm going to have a lot of questions to which you may know the answer. Now scrutinizing the code of Assassins et.al. will have to do instead. :( But anyway, all the best to you! And as everyb...

I've designed an add related to the oxp I'm working on and would like to post it here. But before that I have a real dumb-ass question: :oops: How do I do that? The "Img" button in the posting screen wants me to type an URL. Does it also work with a local path on my computer or do I have to upload m...

Thanks, all, for the reactions to my post! So I would say to all you Ooliteers: Don't be afraid, Equilibrium.oxp is very much going to be in the spirit mentioned. And one of the reasons I chose the southwest corner of Galaxy 3 is that up to now there has been nothing going on there, so the chances t...

And if you have all your four views fitted with a mil laser (as I have), blowing up Thargoid Carriers becomes fairly easy, because it takes a little under four full blasts to boom them. And as they are moving quite slowly, it's easy to hit them first starboard, then flip to port (or the other way ro...

Actually it's East Africa, which is technologically spoken way more back than Antarctica, where most of the inhabited places would be (I guess) well-equipped research stations. Want to read a good joke? In one of the threads somebody mentioned having moved to a place where he has got no ADSL-connect...

Thanks, TGHC, for the link. While I am browsing the bb I have downloaded it. So I guess I'm going to read it sometime soon, if I get the time ( :SIGH: why on earth can my computer do pre-emptive multi-tasking, but I can't? I have to work on my OXP, to browse this forum, and there is even my work in ...

And do you know what is REALLY sad: I can't have fixed it for quite a while, because according to Apple's support website there is NOT A SINGLE authorized Apple dealer IN MY WHOLE CONTINENT!!!!!! . Well, your location is the south-eastern corner of Galaxy 3! You'll need to move to a planet with a h...

I wouldn't go for removing the screen messages altogether, because in Equilibrium.oxp I use them in my plot. So the player might miss an important information about where to go next if they weren't there. They are the only way of (sort of, because the player can't send messages, which would be REALL...

Perhaps I could add a bit to the grief. The screen of my MacBook Pro (under a year old!) has a serious problem: the background light is off. Currently I am using a used external monitor (800x600 :SIGH: ) that clearly has seen its best days. Even with brightness and contrast fully up every darker col...

This should be really another topic, but as the discussion already has developed to this point I feel free to add something of my view. I also am more fond of seeing mission/story-OXPs, and that's the main reason I started to work on Equilibrium.oxp (yeah, that's what it's called now). Before I disc...

@ Dr.Nil: Outworld (and off topic) indeed! And perhaps we should just keep it there, in RealLife. Just as a very brief insight into my personal opinion: To me the story as told in the bible (some of the mythological stuff subtracted) in its core seems far more likely then the myth you are putting up...

Thanks, Dr. Nil and LittleBear! To make it clearer: I'm only placing my station in one system, so I'm not concerned with the coordinates being different in another system, which of course they are. I was concerned with the coordinates of sun and planet relative to each other changing over time in th...
