Hacker outpost

Post by Carrotcat II » Wed Dec 31, 2008 2:53 pm

Can anybody help me find one in galaxy 2...

I am getting fed up with these bloody Bounty Hunters...

Also, is there anyway to see how much of a bounty is actually on my head???

I believe there should be hacker outposts in Atorat, Cerexe, Dimadi, Isusle, Leaza, Quinri and Usmaso.

Are you running anarchies? That might be the issue.
I shot him back first. That is to say, I read his mind and fired before he would have fired on me. No, sir, he wasn't a fugitive.

Ah, but patience is not an anárchic virtue, so it's only natural not to find any outposts until you lose it :P

What if I had had my sanity in the first place? Then I could claim I lost it for such-and-such a reason instead of being born crazy...

Unfortunately, I can not find a hacker Outpost. :cry:
Have the systems Quirin and Atorat in galaxy 2 follow.
Can someone help me please :?:
Do I need more besides the anarchy OXP?
I often met a Renegade Viper. Is that hacker Viper leading you to the hacker Outpost? Unfortunately always fired on me. No matter if my status was clean or offender. What I fired back until she begged me to stop shooting. What I followed her. Without success. Even further shooting on them brought no result. Except that it was destroyed sometime. :roll:

(Sorry for my bad English)

One way to at least determine if there is indeed a Hacker Outpost spawned would be to check the active entities in the system. You will need the Test Release version of the game and the Debug Console for this (check the downloads page at oolite.org for more on that). Launch the console, then launch the game, then go into the system where the Hacker Outpost is expected. Then pause the game and press '0' (zero). The list of entities in the system will be written in Latest.log, complete with their coordinates in the system. You can inspect that Latest.log and see where exactly the Outpost is.

Thanks for the tip.
I have followed your description and searched in the Latest.log for "hacker" and "outpost". Both terms were not found. Which means that there is no hacker Outpost.
In my view, there are two possible causes for this:
1. There is no HAcker Outpost in the system.
2. It lacks an OXP that creates the hacker Outpost or something prevents it.

I will fly to different systems and see if there is one.

I would be in several anarchies now. Every time I checked the Latest.log, in none of the systems was a hacker outpost.
That would mean that something about my Oolite and OXp is wrong. But I do not know what. Am grateful for every tip where I can look for the mistake
