Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

Alas, the poor USS Moneymaker is no more. :( As far as trading ships are concerned, a Dredger Trader is definitely up there as one of the best. But unfortunately the price you have to pay for carrying a 250 ton cargohold is too much. There was this instance where I had some poor agg rubbish to sell ...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

I refer to the Energy Bomb and Eject buttons as "I screwed up, press here"...not far from a "press space" moment. I had to remap both to other keys as I was often bumping the Escape and Tab keys trying to press other keys. :P I hear your pain, brother. But wouldn't it be quicker to call them the OO...

Re: Ship's Name

Find the section referring to your player ship in shipdata.plist, then change the display_name entry to reflect your ship's name (or add it if it is not there already), like this: display_name = "MegaLethal MkIII"; Tada! http://i5.aijaa.com/t/00558/8920835.t.png Am I correct in assuming that this w...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

Penny-pincher. Compared to the cash raked in by trading from a huge hold like that, 900 creds is pocket change. :wink: But what the frak, whatever flies your spaceboat. Look after the pennies and the Credits look after themselves... Hear hear, Daddy. Good to know that prudent people are still aboun...

Re: Ship's Name

Ooooh, now that's a stellar idea!

Easy, simple to do and most importantly requires no coding! :P

Mind you, can't say I'm too hot about the butterfly suggestion. :lol:

But it's hard to be perfectly right twice in a row.

:wink:

Re: Ship's Name

Alternatively, is there a way that I can obscure the Commander header on the F5 screen? That way I could save the file under the intended shipname and it would show up proper then.

Re: Ship's Name

Ok, thanks, Commander. Not the answer I was hoping for since I wanted to show the ship as being a dredger trader but to only display the name on the F5 somewhere. And it Soooooooooo goeas against my grain to buy a new ship when I forked out all of this cash to buy me one in the first place. :wink:

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

Much appreciated, Commander, even if I am not going to follow it. :mrgreen: I mean, spend 900 of my hard earned cash just to lay some bugs to waste? There's no real economic sense there. I've got a tabber but use that only in dire emeregencies and so far I haven't seen anything yet that would class ...

Ship's Name

HI all, I am looking for a way to give a name to the ship I am currently using in Oolite to show it in my equipment screen. The name I was thinking of would be something like USS Moneymaker. Is there an OXP that can do that for me or is there a way I can do it myself? Any assistance will be greatly ...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

Thanks guys. Greatly appreciated. But after another two runs I have come to the conclusion that my dredger trader is, in fact, a battle magnet. And in didn't say anything of that in the sales prospectus! I mean, there's me feeling quite cheerful launching to return to Tiescebi, jump, and bang, siren...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

Ok, there I was leaving Ceanbibi station in my shiny new Dredger Trader with all bits installed and with 161 tons of assorted cargo (all of the machines, computers and luxuries that I could lay my hand on on the Rich Industrial station. Hmmmm, acceleration is rather slow. Hmmmm, pitch and yaw is rat...
