Re: Quote of the week!

Although there's always the risk that, if Oolite came to be seen as an alternative, as opposed to a homage to the original (and to some extents an advert for E:D), then FD might be tempted to bring the hammer down on it. Time for re-branding. Oolite should become Oolite: Harmless. Oolite: Offline (...

Do NOT use Notepad for Windows either. Use Wordpad or even better Notepad++.

Re: BGS - The BackgroundSet

Sorry that I have been quiet for a while. My mother has just been in hospital for a hip replacement so I have other things on my mind at the moment.

I am keeping up with the current conversation and there are some interesting things to ponder over.

Re: Gamergate

I say we're Teflon because all the causes used as a good reason to D.I.P. someone. Slide off oolite. Is it sexist? How sexist is a spaceship? Ok apart from the one I designed that looks like a giant flying cock (take your inspiration from nature, it's air o dynamic). Reminds me of an Iain M Banks C...

Re: Extracting OXZs to AddOns fails on Win7

So, not only do we have to inform new users to NOT use Notepad but now we have tell them not use the in-built zipper in Windows Explorer. :roll:

Re: Split: Re-scaling experiment

At extremely high speeds there should be some danger of "burning up" from smashing into any tiny elements in space. But not at what is still just a paltry fraction of C, surely.. and it wasn't "some" danger.. it was practically guaranteed, once the condition was triggered. I know, I was suggesting ...

Re: [WIP] Reduce Weapons Damage

I also found a flaw in the method i use : It does seem shipSpawned is only called for non-player ships, so i'll have to rethink how to set things up. You could always try... this.shipSpawned(player.ship); in this.startUpComplete in the world script. You also have a logging bug here... log(this.name...

Re: Split: Re-scaling experiment

Planetfall I suspect is a red herring. It's just that without it installed you don't tend to head too close to the planet. When you approach a planet, the sky changes colour, and atmospheric friction begins. As you leave, it changes back and friction decreases. It doesn't always decrease to zero, h...

Re: BGS - The BackgroundSet

One thing i have noticed is that the backgrounds and overlays are about 16 or so pixels too far up. Is it just me? I ain't entirely sure which you mean - this is how the long-range chart looks here (1280x1024). In that image the lane is not aligned on top of the systems. It is shifted up. Is this h...
