Right, because subentities get a random entityPersonality each time they're generated, which is every time the entity is initialised, so if you're using that to randomise your colours...

This is probably a small bug - subentities inheriting their personality from their parent seems more sensible.

EDIT: changed in commit fc0f3e7 to inherit personality, so this should work more consistently in 1.82

Ultimately what I did was swap the parts of the Aphid around so that the "wings" are the subentity, then replaced the random paint stripe on those "wings" with a shiny gold stripe. So the "wings" always have a shiny gold stripe, while the main "ball" ship body has a random colour which is persistent per ship.

Actually a wiki page would be in order. I'll try to find motivation somewhere to do it. I'm just so lazy with that kind of stuff.

New version 1.1.1

I seem to remember that the original SB Faves oxp rendered the Mineral Market somewhat more sensible .

I only mention this because if one has the AI trading assistant oxz installed and set to automatic trading ..One's Harris soon becomes especially laden with Minerals.

Sb-faves is and was just ships. The newer one has a populator script for SAR-ships, but that's all. Some other OXP perhaps?

Yes, perhaps it was another of Simon's oxps that rectified the disproportionate amount of Minerals (in comparrison to the other commodities ) available at Galcop Stations.

Duggan, tell me more detail about what's happening - by posting in the AI Trading Assistant thread - please. Autotrade should never buy minerals unless you're flying an Anaconda sized freighter or at an OXP station where they're particularly cheap.

I just tried out this set, but get this error:

Welcome to the Oolite forum, Mikael!

Mac is more fastidious about the content of plist files than other operating systems. A semicolon or so could cause these at you due to no problem at me under Linux and probably none in Windows also. I think spara will answer for you soon.

Thanks Norby!

Yes, I read that Mac's can be a bit finicky. Perhaps this is something I could fix myself, but thought it better if a general fix was made - I can't be the only Mac man around :)

Hello Mikael and thanks for reporting.

Plist errors are a bit of a pain to fix, as there is no practical way for me to test the new version. I did a visual scan through the shipdata.plist and found two missing semicolons. Those usually are the root for this kind of errors. I corrected those and uploaded a new version here: https://app.box.com/s/f4n4gmajgq378o6zdysmmv38rhrovu8n.

Could you please test it and report back? If it works, I'll upload it to the manager.
