Re: Introduce Yourself.

Hi all Many thanks to Cody for unlocking the door, 's good to be here. I'm back at the controls of a Cobra for the first time in a dozen or so Oorbits, tho' there's a distant memory or three of an Amstrad 6128 and an ancient, magnetic medium from the '80s somewhere on the fringe of consciousness.

Re: Oolite Wiki

Thinking of re-organising the Oolite Main Page http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Oolite_Main_Page , now that Hiran has started tweaking it! It seems I skipped some approval process. I am sorry and will discuss ideas here first. I'd like to add a link to the OXZ list on the Oolite.org website and reo...

Delighted!

Re: Oolite Wiki

Ok, I am two steps further now. I created a parser for this strange data format and have an application that can now parse http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Torus_Drive, transform it into a W3C DOM and transform it using XSLT. Now I have something like an automatic index of expansions. Then I went f...

Changes:
- Updated for Oolite v1.88
- Small cleanup
Any chance of somebody who knows how to updating this for Oolite v.1.90?

It presumably just needs the ctrl-: & ctrl-; added!

Re: I crashed the ooniverse

Torus drive is programmed to exceed 32x speed when there are no stellar bodies or obstacles within a certain ditance of the player. You can accelerate to crazy speeds if you let it go for a good while. So what is speed? I'd assume this refers to the .2 LM the Imperial Star Destroyer can run. That w...

Re: Oolite Wiki

Updating the wiki Do I understand your intention correctly, you want to copy the extension manager descriptions to the wiki? Hiran has suggested that (in collaboration with myself and anybody else who wishes to join in) we create new wiki pages for the OXZs on the Expansions Manager which have no s...

Re: Oolite Wiki

Updating the wiki Hiran, since the wiki is itself unavailable at the moment, this seems like the best place for discussing how to do it. I would suggest dividing up the OXZs by category into more manageable chunks: Activities Ambience Dockables Equipment HUDs Mechanics Miscellaneous Missions Retext...

Re: SNARK

Just to say, I had the same problem as dear old Radagast. Each time I jumped, - 6 times - I met two snarks. Twice, I was lucky, somebody else was also there at the Witchpoint. One presumes that they ended up as fish bait. But the other four times, there was no decoy, and the dastards came after me ,...
