Ascension (possible spoilers)

I've travelled to Ascension which has an interesting description and location. But it doesn't seem to be any different to anywhere else once you make the effort to get there. There is no extra equipment even though it is tech level 16. Am I missing something?

Is it still the case that you cannot scroll through cargo contracts?

Ok thanks. I'll go investigate Ascension before I go to G2.

Thanks for this.

Is there any OXP for standard Oolite that adds Node Zero and the others?

If not, I think I'll wait before I follow the Constrictor into G2 and investigate Ascension in G1.

Node Zero and OSE

Famous Planets adds Ascension to G1, but I've seen mentioned Node Zero and other "special" locations. What OXP adds them?

What are RS and OSE? I've seen them mentioned and OSE apparently adds Ascension as well.

Sorry if it's obvious - I haven't managed to guess or find it.

Cheers,
Mike

I think your missions page should be linked off there judging by the kind of links that are there. [EDIT: I have linked from the OXP List but I think the main page is a better place.] I do agree, but it looks butt-ugly at the moment. It's too late for me today to work on it and the coming two or th...

While I was at it, I added the discussion forum to the main page. Let me know if you have any problems with it. I just think that the forum is important enough to be linked from there. http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Oolite_Main_Page Good idea! :idea: Thanks. I think your missions page should be l...

Just to update the date of this thread really as the advice is still correct.

OXPs can be found at: http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/OXP

I've corrected the link in http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Oolite_Equipment (that you get to from the main Oolite page) to point to the categorised Equipment page rather than the old All_OXP's_by_Category page which I've marked as deprecated. While I was at it, I added the discussion forum to the m...

Like I said if I were you I'd add a line at the top saying it's designed for 1280px wide or greater. Done. :) But given how these things go, I'm sure someone else will have a brainwave and the whole thing will change again in 6 months time... And why not...?! Improvements welcome! 8) As long as it ...

Ok I've added something about the resolution. [EDIT: maik did it better so I removed my change]

I find that the wiki is variable regarding loading any page. Sometimes it loads them almost instantly, sometimes it seems to hang for ages. [EDIT maik's explanation above would account for this]

OXP page is now live. I have renamed OXP_Expansions to OXP_List. Thargoid, there was much debate about the table. A fixed width table would allow all rows to be on one line but you would have to scroll to see author and date of release. Cdr. McLane said it was better that the lines wrap at a lower r...

Link from main page to separate page with table http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/OXP_new which links to: http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/OXP_Expansions As there seems to be a clear majority in favour of linking, unless anyone has any objections, I will make live the pages above this evening.
