Re: Viewing ships models in the Expansion pack manager

The 3D model need to download the whole package first which is not so practical imho. I'm stoopid. :oops: I think a static image would be enough, for example as an url in the manifest file. Moreover if it is missing then the wiki page of ships contain somewhat standardized pictures what the game co...

Re: Thought experiment: no currency

That said, in a small community, what replaces money is Debt. As in "I'm in your debt". People give others services, and thingies, to lessen their debt. The debt can't be calculated precisely, and everybody young is in the debt of the elders for their care , so finally debt is mostly psychological ...

Viewing ships models in the Expansion pack manager

Would it be possible to view the ships models in rotating 3D in the expansion pack manager?

I understand this is a conveniency, rather than a need, as the player can go and check the oxp content on the internet.

Re: Pirate Path or Occupation within Oolite

And this add a new path: the pirate redemption path! Where you struggle to become positive again, without being killed by other pirates... Actually it would just be nice to see the original idea in production. Not trying to complicate it. Trying to find the easiest or best way it could be done, if ...

Re: Pirate Path or Occupation within Oolite

Nice! 1.) OXZ flips the rolls of GalCops and Pirates towards the player. Pirates will be neutral or friendly towards the player depending on "rank" and "bounty level/amount". The greater the Rank or Bounty the more friendly the Pirates will be. GalCops are always hostile towards the player. It could...

Re: GalCop Galactic Registry (Release)

The given information could be blatantly false, because of political or business propaganda. The given information could be outdated, because of government changes (why yes, I dream of this in Diplomacy). The only issue with these is how to communicate to the player, in a non-obvious kind of way, t...

Re: More real astronomy in Oolite

Having simple solar systems is ok for a game where the player is traveling from systems to systems. But for activities taking place mainly in one system, for example having a pirate base, a too simple solar system is too limiting. So I think that developing Oolite geography will allow for more game ...

Re: Pirate Path or Occupation within Oolite

Day, You are saying that it is realistic for it to be very hard for a pirate to survive as anything other than a member of a group, and for a pirate to profit substantially without being a leader of a group. Those ideas make sense. Does any OXP allow them, though? Exact. Only Escort deck to my know...

Re: Pirate Path or Occupation within Oolite

I really want to hear others thoughts on my ideas that I post on. I live alone and talking to my dogs about this stuff just dosen't cut it. lmao.. :D Okay, you asked for it: here are are some disorganized thoughts :D To survive as a pirate, you need to be in a band. To profit as a pirate, you need ...

Re: [WIP] Diplomacy OXP

This all sounds really intriguing. I'll have to try it .-) Just a quick note - probably it's better to use GNN instead of Snoopers. Snoopers stalled already and it's time to get rid of CCL, OXPConfig and Hyperradio. Library offers better functionality and flexibility and if something is missing let...

Re: GalCop Galactic Registry (Release)

Hi phkb, Disclaimer: I had this oxp installed since forever, and I didn't really use it. It was breaking a little bit my suspension of disbelief, but I couldn't say why at the time. Now, I begin an Oolite game anew for the first time since I discovered Oolite all those years ago (ok, not so long ago...

Re: [WIP] Diplomacy OXP

The oxz is available again into the game package manager. It's currently the same as the 0.11 version from july 2017. It's now hosted on sourceforge, so hopefully it won't stop again to be available because of my own servers. I will have another look at your documentation and code again, last time i...

I finally need to give it a test try, I guess there are plenty of opportunities to implement the System Guard Navy. Totally :D That was one of my goals, to have system flotillas warring :mrgreen: You might want to check the doc in the oxz, in particular the roadmap, which is admittedly dense, but e...
