Re: Science Fiction Trivia

How about any part of Japan from the Godzillaverse? If you live there you know that it is only a matter of a short time before some giant something or other is going to either stomp or breathe your hometown into nothingness. Why rebuild when you can actively flee to somewhere that is not plagued by ...

Re: [RELEASE] Towbar OXP v0.104

My modifications to Towbar are strictly cosmetic. 1) Changed all instances of the name "Towbar" to "Tractor Beam" as the invisible part of the code is used. 2) Changed all instances of consoleMessage to commsMessage. My ship does A LOT of talking as it is easier for me to retain messages if they are...

Re: [RELEASE] Towbar OXP v0.104

Towbar gets used sparingly in my Ooniverse and is highly modified to fit my own needs. This requires lots of maintenance whenever a new version is released but that is half the fun of such things. The only question is: will these Towbar Payout OXP's be mandatory or will the stand alone releases stil...

Re: [Release] Space Crowds

Testing is now complete with the following result: if (spawnedShips[i].isShip && !spawnedShips[i].isDerelict && !spawnedShips[i].isBoulder && !spawnedShips[i].is1t-cargopod) and if (spawnedShips[i].isShip && !spawnedShips[i].isDerelict && spawnedShips[i].scanClass !== 'CLASS_CARGO' && spawnedShips[i...

Re: [Release] Space Crowds

Thank You Astrobe and cag.

Your suggestions have been taken under advisement and will be tested. Will report on the success or failure of the testing once it is complete. As always though, life first, so it may be a few days or more. Thanks again.

Re: [Release] Space Crowds

if (spawnedShips[i].isShip && !spawnedShips[i].isDerelict && !spawnedShips[i].isBoulder && !spawnedShips[i].is1t-cargopod) The above is what is currently being tested as an error free solution to the code mentioned in my previous post. The isDerelict and isBoulder descriptors are working as desired...

Re: [Release] Space Crowds

Thank you phkb. Your suggestions have been added to my "to try" list should the current attempts fail once again. Have also added the randomly spawned Cargo Pods to the work list. So the want is to be able to F5/F5/F8 for HyperCargo access while the space around my ship has either a derelict ship, a...

Re: [Release] Space Crowds

if (spawnedShips[i].isShip && !spawnedShips[i].isDerelict) The above code works for keeping Derelict Ships around when doing F5/F5/F8 for HyperCargo access. Without this when the first F5 was pressed the Derelict Ship would vanish. Modified the above code to the following to try and get a similar b...

Re: BGS 2.5.1: How can I remove the parts that I don't want?

It can all be done but you would have to properly edit the various files that are packaged within the OXZ. Some of it would involve changing the code in the .plist and Javascript files. Some of the other changes you mentioned would involve editing texture files within a paint program of some type. E...

Re: Why was the difficulty of pirates set so high?

Try THIS PAGE from the OOLITE WIKI . Once on the Wiki you can type all sorts of stuff into the search box to find further informaton. There is a way of making your ship's scanner non-linear (quicker shift between levels) but it involves tweaking .plist files which you may or may not be ready for. Th...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

The Conan the Barbarian Series (Marvel Comics and Arnold films) had The Cult of Set, the Great Snake God. In this context Set is an evil God that fights against the Gods of light. No disparagment is intended towards any worshipers of the original Ancient Egyptian God Set who might still be around, b...
