Very dedicated police...

Saw this situation soon after installing 1.80. I was on my way into the station from the witchpoint marker. Came across an Adder, flagged as an offender. I waited to see if they were hostile, but instead they put out a call for help. Into view flew a formation of GalCop Vipers, who were firing on th...

Comms log in a MFD

Hopefully this is a quick question. Is it possible to get all in-flight comms listed in a MFD? I find that comms take place too quickly in some circumstances, and repeatedly hitting the "`" key to show recent comm messages is awkward.

Re: Random Hits OXP

Yes, the save file snippet was after the incident.
It was a mid-level mark.
Yes, the mark used an escape pod.

Re: Random Hits OXP

I think I found a bug in RandomHits. I'm running version 1.7 (which I believe is the latest) in Oolite 1.77.1. I'd just finished a hit in Gal 5, at Divees. I'd docked, unloaded some cargo, picked up some new stuff, then jumped out to Arzaquar. When I arrived in system, there was another ship at the ...

Re: Bug when picking up gold cargo

Hmm...in that case it would be *really* useful to have some sort of flag/display element showing on the manifest that part of your cargo space is taken up with precious metals. Should I post this in the "Suggestions" area? I imagine it would be a simple OXP type job.

Re: Bug when picking up gold cargo

Just to make sure I've got this straight... If I scoop gold (or gemstones or anything that would normally go in a safe) it shows in the manifest as if it's in the safe, although it's actually in a cargo canister that I can select for ejection. (I didn't realise this - I'll have to test!). Basically,...

Re: Bug when picking up gold cargo

Seriously, there does appear to be an issue here somewhere... If I scoop up gold, two things are happening (1) a spare spot in my cargo bag is taken up, and (2) the random amount of gold in the container is added to my gold already in the safe. Technically, these are just two variables in my current...

Re: Bug when picking up gold cargo

Ooookay, right, so I'm flying this you-beaut, top-of-the-line, fully-kitted-out Cobbie MkIII, with a tin foil safe that can hold hundreds of kilos of gold that "magically" expands when exposed to space?

Sure, that sounds feasible. :roll:

Re: Bug when picking up gold cargo

Fair enough, although that doesn't make sense either really. How does it get from the safe into a cargo canister when a ship explodes for me to scoop up?

Bug when picking up gold cargo

I was on route to Esgebi (gal 2), and blasting my way through a number of pirates. I had a load of 33t of liquor/wines, so I thought I might pick up a couple of the free cargo canisters that were now drifting around. So I grab the first canister. 15kg of gold! "Score!" I thought. That doesn't take u...

Re: Constrictor Hunt bug...maybe

Oh, right! Got it. I should have read more closely the details on the planet list page, that gives me that exact detail! D'oh! :oops:

Re: Constrictor Hunt bug...maybe

I don't think an OXP has messed with the tech levels. I was looking in the "oolite-galaxies.xls" file (from the planet list), and the planet is listed in there as TL 9. However, further research reveals that the wiki on galaxy 1 has the planet listed as TL 10. Confusing.

Constrictor Hunt bug...maybe

I'm not sure if this is a bug or something that was intended, but I thought I'd raise it anyway. This is supposed to be this friendliest board this side of Riedquat, so hopefully I won't get lasered into oblivion for posting something irrelevant... Moving on... (To avoid spoilers, I've changed the c...
