[RELEASE] Status Quo Ship's Library Book OXP

Post by Ramen »

Hi all,

I have written (read: copy-pasted) an OXP to add Status Quo to the Ship's Library.
It is available from the in game package manager or the wiki page, which will be made and linked to as soon as I can load the wiki. (Does it always do this?)

See you around,
Ramen

Mainly doesn't load pages seemingly arbitrarily. I thought it might be the backup process, but it wasn't the right time for that.
It's annoying, but not dehabilitating.

I can investigate if you PM me next time it happens and let me know which page didn't load at what time, and also a bit more detail about what does happen (error message, browser hanging...)

Alright. I will do this. To my knowledge you are the wiki admin right? Can't really refuse helping now can I? :)

My morality would conflict with that course of action.

Finally reading Status Quo, and thanks to Ship'sLibrary(not listed on the OXP list?) I've been able to read several pages each time I'm mass-locked. Has saved a couple of honest traders from vaporization; I'm sure they're hoping Mutabilis becomes available before I'm finished. :)

I actually emailed Drew Wagar about that, but he hasn't gotten back to me yet.
I suppose I will talk to him again if he doesn't get back in about a week.

See you around,

Ramen

EDIT:
I suppose I should go into how I made this OXP. Unlike my other OXP, Hyperspace Hangar, this OXP was made by a relatively braindead process.
It goes like this: 1) Email Drew for plaintext, obtain. 2) download another book (Extracts from the Tre Clan. By the way, thanks cim!) 3) copypastecopypastcopypaste 4) Iron out bugs and special characters that won't display. 5) Release
The reason I am providing this information is that I realized that the talk of Mr. Wagar could cause some confusion.

Thanks for the explanation. I'd volunteer to do Ship'sLibrary grunt work, but then I wouldn't get to read the stuff in my new preferred format. :mrgreen:

I have a vague notion of adding to the body of Oolite fiction, which I will pursue after finishing at least the Oolite Saga. I'll probably first read the TreClan Extracts as well, since I can do that from an MFD. I'll make sure to do the copypastecopypastcopypaste on that myself if it's ever Ship'sLibrary bound; I have to find some place to pull a little weight with so many folks contributing to an Oolite that keeps getting better as time marches along.

Extracts of the Tre Clan is already in ship's library format. It's on the expansion manager.

:oops: Sorry, I was unclear. I meant I would write an original Oolite story, but likely after reading some other stuff (including Tre Clan, which I can tackle while mass-locked).

Thanks for the in game version. I found only a few little typos:

<       Oolite will need little introduction to those of you who have played it. Suffice to say, here is what Elite would have been if the technology of the 1980s had been up to it. Better graphics for sure, but the same open ended gameplay. Crucially now, players have the ability to generate their own content for the 'Ooniverse'. Aspects of the original manual (Generations and Space Dredgers for example) now exist in Oolite. The Tionisla graveyard from the The Dark Wheel is now a real place. There are new ships, new missions, new places to go. The Ooniverse is as big as the imaginations of the people who create it.
