Re: Hard Way

I'm not sure if the May 19th post was a response to this (HardWay.oxp + Power to Engines.oxp + Joystick): I hope latest Hard Way release fixed this specific issue. It is hard to avoid conflicts with OXPs changing game mechanics. If OXP B affects OXP A - well, sometimes conflict is caused by logical...

Thank you for info!
In brief - recruiting agents having safe cover in East Germany. No any really dangerous field work behind enemy lines.

Re: The U.S. election - the aftermath

Most likely, a trained spy against a mentally sick moron, there was a reason why Russian hackers tried to boost this guys' election in the past in the first place. While Trump prided himself to be "unpredictable" his metal profile and his personality made it easy to predict and manipulate a simple ...

Re: The U.S. election - the aftermath

Not Putin, I think. I wonder if Putin was able to blackmail Trump with stuff from his earlier visits to Mother Russia? Most likely, a trained spy against a mentally sick moron, there was a reason why Russian hackers tried to boost this guys' election in the past in the first place. While Trump prid...

Re: SW Economy

Sorry - only just worked it out - this would require Blooomberg Markets to pick up on the existence of medicine, oxygen & water as new commodities, no? Would it need an SW version of Blooomberg, or could it be done just with modifying what is currently there? Looking at BlOomberg Markets. It uses t...

Re: Species: Lobstoids, Amphiboids, Reptiles etc.

So conventional evolutionary history (IIRC) would have it the the groups appeared (on Earth) in this order: Arthropods (crustaceans/lobsters first, then insects) Amphibians (frogs) Lizards Birds Mammals (rodents then felines) Humanoids (various human ancestors) Humans Just my five сopecks (Copeck i...

Re: SW Economy

Market Cooldown is really nice OXP, based on very smart idea. I like it! But Market Cooldown has critical drawback. It uses sum of distances to witchpoint and system sun to generate unique key for every system port. Works fine for static Ooniverse, but it will not work for (pseudo)dynamic Planetary ...

Re: SW Economy

Mind you, I ended up taking out the news services from my SW Ooniverse - if I don't know where the various worlds are, how on earth can I be getting news about what goes on there?! But then SW Economy does not seem to need the rest of the SW suite of .oxp's installed. News services works well in va...

Re: SW Economy

We have already system descriptions like "This system is cursed by deadly disease / deadly civil war" indeed, so the next logical step will be to affect price for medicine, firearms, maybe for some other items in special cases. It can be logical to have increased demand for medicine in these systems...

Re: Fun star map

But I'm wondering if (i) maps could be generated randomly to encourage discovery (and then .oxp's could be generated to enhance this) Right. You can generate procedural maps and some of these maps will have interesting topology. Imagine three separated domains, connected with only narrow star bridg...
