Yep, in white... as do escape capsules.

Anything that isn't powered is shown as white on the scanner, including abandoned ships that the pilot has ejected from.

But it has always puzzled me as to why the Escape capsule is white when it is powered. Perhaps it's because it so low powered that it doesn't register.

Your laptop specs are considerably better than mine (see below), and I run 200+ OXPs, including lots of eye-candy, with quite acceptable performance, so you will probably find you you could add a shipset or two, some stations and Povray Planets (for instance) without causing any significant slowdowns.

My specs:

I hate that non-alphabetical listing. Diz... do you have both Griff's Rock Hermit and Griff's Station Bundle installed? The bundle includes the rock hermit already.

Yeah, sorry guys, I just copy/pasted from my Latest.log, since it was already open..

Thanks for the tip, Tricky.. and I will remove the unnecessary RH OXP.

Hello gang, I haven't been here for literally... years. I still have the pleasure of two devices with abysmal integrated Intel chipsets, but Oolite works reasonably well out of the box on both of them.

But I have lost track of releases a bit - the version I just installed looks suspiciously like an ACTUAL Next Stable Release which is fabulous. However I have lost track of what was rolled into it, and as I have no shaders... what is there recommendation for no-shader machines these days?

Griff's_No_Shaders_Shipset seems to have disappeared, has it been superseded by the core release now or is there a different OXP that's now recommended?

That is strange - CaptSolo has blanked his Wiki page, and removed the no-shaders shipset from my Box.
It is now part of 1.79 trunk - but no longer available on its own, it seems... hmm.

Welcome back, btw.

I'm not sure what's happened to the oxp but you can get it as part of the 'trunk nightlies' http://terrastorage.dyndns.info/oolite/ ... win64.html

Thanks chaps. First thing I have done is... cut and paste that list into Excel and pressed "Sort." :-)

Just to be sure: the current release version is 1.77.1, which is actually already beyond the next stable, which was (is) 1.76.1.

The future release plan is to have each even version as a stable version (so 1.78 will be the next one), and each odd version as a test version where new features are implemented and tested (that's what all the fuzz about the current trunk—the upcoming version 1.79—is about).

For playing the game you shouldn't use the trunk version, thus 1.77.1. is what you need.

Oh, and welcome back, zevans! :D

Always nice to see one of my OXP's make someone's list... I was afraid they'd been forgotten since they don't have Wiki pages, and some never even got added to the OXP List.

I wouldn't be without 'em.. :D

Must admit I get a kick out of seeing my wee modest contribution in someone's list, too.. 8)
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied
