If this one's going to get updated, may I humbly suggest to take a look at the commodities prices and the known overflow bug where you can get over 100 credits for 1 unit of food. Or is it a feature? :wink:

And maybe even an eye-candy only version? Billboards but no con-stores.

It's not really an update, just a repackaging. That particular bug isn't unique to YAH, but is one that can maybe be squashed later on.

do the con stores affect the game if you dont use them? or do they change economics on the stations too?

noobie question.....

No - at most they might provide targets for passing Thargoids, and add some NPCs to the mix, coming and going, but they don't affect main station prices.

Mind you, they also put some additional load on the computer.. of particular interest to spud42, given his interest in the recent Pandora port of Oolite. :wink:
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

I did write a little OXP in the past which suppressed them. I'll dig out a link later, and will also OXZ it.

Edited to add - suppression OXP

OK, YAH plus as packs A-G should now all be available via the in-game OXZ manager in trunk (a list update should make them appear, as ambience packs), as is my mobile ad-ship bolt-on OXP. Will sort the other little OXPs out tonight.

Let me know if any download problems occur, hosting is on the wiki.

Ah, so now there are names to put in the requires line for the manifest of my OXP Haulers, then...?

If we're going to make a new "release" of YAH, perhaps the line to make store brands persistent (covered in the OXP Tweaking thread) should be added. And of course I suggest the GalaxyMart that I created to replace one of the duplicate Star brands... Heck, the haulers could be folded into the YAH OXP itself if you like.

Give me a few days and I'll look over everything again (bit busy at the mo).

We can look at that, plus the Commodities.plist bug that Spara mentioned and maybe a general freshening up of the set-up and scripting in the OXP, as I think it's a bit old in places. But it does sound like a good idea in the slightly longer term.

To reflect the various comments about the balancing effect of this ambiance oxp and to bring it up to the Oolite 1.80 standards I have released a version 4.2 of this oxp. Available from the expansion manager.

* Security Sidewinders updated to Dertien's re-textured Griff sidewinders.
* Fueling at the stations is disabled to rebalance the oxp. For many missions fueling at the witchpoint makes it too easy.
* Market has been tamed to prevent the outrageous profits. Prices are as crazy as before, but the quantities are altered to drastically cut down profit.
* Stations: saving enabled, allegiance set to 'chaotic' and BGS tunnel enabled.
* Shipdata.plist has been reorganized and cleaned. As much content as possible has been moved from ad-packs to the main oxp.

For those that don't care about the possible breaking effect of the fueling at the ConStores an addon oxp "Your Ad Here Fuel Station" is available from the expansion manager.

New version of YAH! with Keeper's fixes will be up when uploading to the wiki works again, but in the meanwhile I have constructed a test version of a gambling addon to the Con Stores.

My plan is to take the gambling games I wrote for the Hoopy casino (dice game, video poker, hold'em and black jack) and make them work in the Con Stores. This version (0.1) has one gambling game, the dice game, included and all gambling is done in Gems. To prevent the obvious save/load exploit, the gambling game is only available at the Con Store when the player loads the game from anywhere elsewhere than Con Store.

Download here: https://app.box.com/s/loxzs2ieexxu2pdtuf9s05n53wsjwig9. Naturally requires YAH!.

As always, all feedback is much appreciated.
