More Mac Newbie problems - OXPs not working

Post by tenorman1971 » Tue Apr 23, 2019 11:59 am


I'm running Oolite 1.88 under Mojave. When I downloaded it, I dragged the Oolite folder into my Applications folder. There was no AddOns folder in it, so I created one. I've put OXPs in there as I did when I used to use Linux, but they don't do anything. I can use the expansion pack manager as before, but there were some OXPs that I was using that are not there as OXZs so I wanted to add them manually. Does version 1.88 on Mac still support manually adding OXPs like this? Has anyone else had this problem?

I think, on the Mac, you need to create the AddOns folder at

~/Library/Application Support/Oolite/AddOns/

There should be a folder there already called Managed AddOns - I think you need to create a separate AddOns folder alongside this.

(If you need to find the Library folder, go to the Go menu in Finder and hold down the ALT key.)
