I’d say that it is not, in fact, accurately explained in the wiki, since it appears to only be mentioned regarding has_ecm
. Besides, people don’t look at the documentation. This is a well known fact.
Well, people--at least OXPers--ought to
look at the documentation, don't they? I did
before attemping to write my first OXP, and I continuously do
while writing stuff. In fact I downloaded all
OXPing related documents from the wiki in order to have them available all the time. Usually on my desktop I have opened the plists I am working on in an editor
, a couple of wiki documentations on writing plists (usually at least three or four at a time) in Safari
, a galaxy map of my current galaxy in Preview
, a planet list of that galaxy and probably some additional documents or my pilot log in TextEdit
, the log of my latest test-run in Console
and my pilots folder in the Finder
, firing up my test pilot every now and then for testing what I just typed. (Yes, it's quite crowded on my desktop. And sometimes I have to open even some work-related stuff.
You may call me naive, but I somehow expected all OXP writers to work like that.
And for the accuracy of the documentation: Without further thinking I've always assumed that the sentence "By chance factor, or true/false." in the "has_ecm"-entry is valid for all the other "has"-entries as well, which proved to be correct. By the way, also the entry for "hasShipyard" (which was added by myself) has the complete information--including the possibility of having an array of conditions as value--which I obtained from Giles' readme-file in 1.65.
