Re: Falcon Turrets

After taking a quick look at the shipdata.plist it's clear. The Falcon S uses bweed-falcon-player_turret which does not use initialiseTurret . So they are just standard entities. The simplest fix is to add the code to bweed-falcon-player_turret as well. <key>setup_actions</key> <array> <string>initi...

Re: Falcon Turrets

The subentities declaration needs to be changed to the new form.
setup_actions is deprecated (for a loooong time already).

Re: V1.88 - first impressions

But before changing textures and/or materials, start with the models and apply vertex normals to get the lighting in Oolite right.

Re: Progress

Looks really good, a_c! And I do have a question about your answer in the Screenshot topic. Nice! Does this mean that blending is only available for visual effects? And that they are drawn after all of the other, usual, 'solid' entities? Yes, at the moment blending is deliberately limited to visual ...

Re: Minor tweaks to improve play maybe

1. GNN changes up songs in iTunes Oolite playlists. (Interesting when you have 6 news reports and the song changes up every time you go to the next report. lol). I'll look at it. Maybe I could simply offer to go to the next report, if it doesn't use a callback. 2. Bioomarkets GNN ...<snip> Do you m...

Re: [Release] System Features: Rings

@RockDoctor: °sigh° @Prester John: Not so much memory. It's more a graphics card which can handle this. @gsagostinho:The rings are looking great now, gsagostinho! And after taking a look at the shader - some ideas: 1. It could be worth using Oolites fogUniform for the atmosphere instead. Then you ca...

:| On the Wiki, I saw "download Python 2.6", when I dowloaded Obj2Dat.py.
So you mean I have to re-download Python 2.7 for *points at link above*?
:x *GRUMF!* Okay, I note.
Seems the WIKI is outdated as well. See this post by Ahruman.

Re: Help with Models for Absolute Beginners (wings3d and PC)

It might just be possible to use an obj file without the mtl (disclaimer: not sure, never done it), but I would expect that information related to textures of that model will be lost. Yep. BTW: The recommended converter script these days is Obj2DatTexNorm.py . It requires (if I recall it right) Pyt...
