Re: [Re-RELEASE] D.T.T. Planet Express 1.1 (Re-scaled)

This ship is hopelessly overpowered I can say now that I've flown it. For the combination of cost/speed/cargo it has it should be at least as weak as an adder with its combat capabilities which are still as good as a cobra 3 (and better than those of a cobra 1 at the same price). Just outrun everyth...

Re: Squeaky clean assassins.

There is a reputation-based system for who Vipers side with in clean-vs-clean fights that's more complex than "who they see shoot first", though that is there as a tie break. It affects other NPCs too, in different ways. That never occurred to me, despite countless previous "Your help in keeping xx...

Re: Missile malfunction - bug or feature?

A missile should launch at the velocity of the ship then accelerate to the sum of the missile top speed plus ship velocity. Currently even a slow ship can outrun a missile at injector speed which would no longer be possible if fired at injector speed and the firing ship has faster cruising speed. W...

Re: Screenshots

Can be avoided by planning carefully enough I think. Just don't take all contracts as long as their destination is just somewhere along the route and also consider their deadline instead. The parcel contracts with a tight deadline cannot pay much bonus anyway. You may not want to visit a certain sys...

Re: Screenshots

I wonder how you could get so low with the time left ? When taking a contract with a time limit I now compare the estimated time with the granted one. If it's more than 1.5 times as much and you normally use the "fastest" route and dock manually ("fast" dock = 20 min) it allows for a non-direct rout...

Re: Scooping platinum/gold while carrying more than 499

I'm using a git checkout and don't install anything else. The stuff seems present (it should be shouldn't it), perhaps I need to build the debug console previously ? Is the updated 1.82.x branch already a "test release" ?

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

I died So, you're gonna start at Lave with 100Cr as a proper iron man now, don't you ? Oolite is not made for that kind of play. There are too many easy or stupid ways to instantly die even in an extremly advanced state. I once had about 30 or 40 at Xeines in G3, probably the maximum. Mostly Asps a...

Re: Scooping platinum/gold while carrying more than 499

No idea. I assume one could assemble a test case using an almost strict fresh Jameson and putting stuff to scoop near the witchpoint in Zaonce, if I knew how to do that. My addons: ~/GNUstep/Library/ApplicationSupport/Oolite/ManagedAddOns/oolite.oxp.Thargoid.CargoShepherd.oxz ~/GNUstep/Library/Appli...

Re: Scooping platinum/gold while carrying more than 499

I just scooped an escape pod while carrying 0/5 TC cargo space (military manta ray from aquatics with cargo expansion and pylon reloader). It's consuming 2 TC cargo space, so 2/5 TC now according to the MFD and manifest screen. Other than that I only have 0 gold, 118kg platinum and 94g gemstones. Ma...

Re: Missile malfunction - bug or feature?

In one of the earlier realeses 1.65 or close above I had a Python, Not sure what it was called now. Does anybody fly a Boa or Anaconda with missiles? I can't afford one to test it. I have a Boa 2 Cruiser save. Yes, can reproduce. ECM hardened missile shot onto an asteroid at full speed, flying stra...

Re: Missile malfunction - bug or feature?

I've witnessed it too, probably with a python. And I also think it happens with NPCs as their missiles while they are fleeing often seem to be destroyed for no reason. They're not firing then, I am unlikely to hit the missile and an ECM isn't triggered. Maybe also with a Python, often appears as pir...

Re: [RELEASE] Rescue Stations 1.2.4 (25 Mar 2012)

After accepting the black box mission I was shocked to realize I had to transport it back into the same system instead of just delivering at any main or RRS station. This should be made very clear previously to accepting it, not right afterwards as it can seriously ruin contract plans. Most of the t...

Re: (BETA) Station Dock Control OXP

The order in which inbound ships are shown is not the queue. I am number 2 says the station and I really am but are shown as 5 in the MFD. Perhaps a bug, otherwise it's a feature request.

Re: Squeaky clean assassins.

Having offender (or even fugitive) status would make them a target for any passing viper, BH, have a go trader or as pointed out fellow assassin. Any assassin that acquires a bounty, would go on a road trip to clear their status, their livelihood (and life) depends upon it. Exactly the same is true...

Re: Aquatics OXP

Copy paste error in the military manta ray's definition: I noticed that my right turret never fires. It was rotated in the wrong direction, facing the own ship's fuselage. This may be intended, but the Fugu Tanker pilots seem to always be heavy drunkards. When they wanna dock with the main station t...
