Re: Tionisla Orbital Graveyard 2.0

Solar winds. It's not actually rust, but the chemical effects of solar winds on the ships' paint. This paint supports a wide range of temperatures but is prone to decomposition if exposed to charged particles. Shields normally prevent that.

Re: Wow

Welcome!

The CPC464 and the sound of the programs loading from the tape... Will it actually start? Will it not? And those wonderful intro musics (Zynaps, Thanatos, Netherworlds, Exolon...).

Re: Scriptable pause?

I've updated the auto-pause script/equipment.

Please note that it is now in OXZ format. I can't make it available from the manager yet because I can't require version 1.87 in the manifest.

This version lets you choose between pausing on yellow or red condition with equipment mode key switch 'b'.

Re: [Release] Missile modification

Version 1.1 is out.

It seemed to me that standard missiles were a bit too ECM resistant, so now they have 80% to explode instead of 65%.

Compass target mode autoswitch

This little OXP automatically switches your Advanced Space Compass (ASC) to target mode when a ship is locked and you are in red alert. Depending on its size and its location, the ASC can be more useful than the HUD indicator, in particular when the target is off screen. Available in the manager, ca...

Re: Missiles can talk?

Playing in strict mode isn't exactly appealing and I don't see talking missiles that often. Maybe a script could detect that them and dump enough info to give some clues on where they come from?

Re: JB WIP thread: several ships

Welcome back! I'm no good with 2D/3D stuff, but I think I can help with the plist files (never did for ships/stations though) and OXZ bundling.

Re: Firefox Quantum

I'm still using Pale Moon. Starts faster, uses about two times less memory. I use FF for some stuff and I was displeased to see that I lost a few things because FF57 made obsolete the speed dial extension I was using (might be temporary though). Mouse gestures are gone too. Add the mandatory ad-bloc...

Re: (WIP) GalCop's Most wanted

Nice! An idea: when the player has license and arrive into a new system, the nav buoy could send a message about the lastly seen most wanted ships, just after a few seconds delay to avoid info jam at arrive. This can confirm the presence of the target, giving motivation to hunt and also a reminder ...

Re: Missiles can talk?

To be honest, this bug is sometimes so hilarious that I wouldn't mind if it were not fixed (for instance, by checking that the entity actually has a pilot, I've seen that property somewhere I think). For instance, I've see Vipers trying to reason with stellar serpents. I would say it's actually a cu...

Re: [Release] Space Crowds

Thanks for this add-on, phkb. This reminded me that I have myself something in store: Vipers versus Stellar Serpents (rare encounter). The Vipers are there essentially for lols; when they interact (Vipers tend to ignore the Serpents), the comms can be quite funny. Of course, you'll need Thargoid's S...

Re: (Release) Manual Witchspace Alignment

Nice, nice, nice! v1.86 includes a patch that lets you change the compass mode ; It could be abused to force a basic compass to the desired mode, which could make the directions on console part (when there's only a basic compass) unnecessary. I was checking if it could actually be useful by playing ...

Traces. Make sure the function is actually called. Print out the value of the variables you are testing.

Re: about player.ship.massLockable (new in 1.85)

So all three then :-) I'll take a look at how it's done with the compass.
