Amen Brick's Megaships.oxp (v1.2) UPDATED!!

Post by Amen Brick »

NOTE: Don't buy a Private Yacht unless it has a docking computer, as it MAY explode on docking. If it does have a Docking Computer, dock with Shift-D and not C. This will be sorted out shortly either by autoinstalling a docking computer, by resizing the Yacht or by taking away the playerbuyability of the Yacht, whatever I can do.


Amen Brick's Mega Ships v1.2 (now on wiki)

Amen Bricks Megaships

V1.2 (the no exploding giants version)

Now on Box.net file server. Less hassle, no ads, etc.
Made trader a one in a thousand chance.
Added some specific escort ships as none seemed to be generated
Tinkered with some speeds.


Thanks to everyone, and there are lots of you, who helped me through the minefield of my own mistakes. I hatez the syntax checking. Heh.

Changes from (unreleased v1.0)

Made the ships much larger, centred them and made sure they were all going in the right direction. Scaled down the shielding and lessened the handling. Battleships and Hospitalships get military equipment, as do some yachts. Biodomes are unpiloted, but will flee if shot at. (autopilot, see?) Improved the texture of the yacht and the Supercargo. Made the names less generic to avoid conflict. Added the Police and Pirate Battleships. Added read me and image files to oxp.


What is this?

A collection of eye candy super big ships that wander the highways and byways of the Ooniverse.

Battleship: A large military carrier that works for the navy, police or pirates. Sometimes radar invisible, sometimes can detect same. Pirate battleships have better manoevrebility, but less shielding.

Image
Image
Image

Biodome: A lonely relic of some ancient disaster wandering the stars until called home or dissolving into dust.

Image

Cruiseship: It's not all work in the Ooniverse! Many choose to visit the stars on their years off.

Image

Hospitalships: Take help to all parts of the Ooniverse. Can see cloaked ships (all the better to see the helpless)
(feel free to edit the red cross off the texture if you want a purer oolite experience)

Image

Supercargo: Charity is not dead! These ships take aid to those planets plagued by natural or unnatural disasters.

Image

Superlifters: Big Ships need big transporters when they break down. (well, technically and scientifically they don't, but hey, I do not fear the laws of physics!)

Image

Yacht: Amen Class: You've made billions exploiting the masses. This is your reward. There is a rare chance (15% in tech 12+ systems) than these luxurious giants are for sale.

Image

Enjoy.


Future Things

So glad to get this version working that I didn't want to risk adding turrets to the battleship or yacht, but will in the future. Possibly will make battleships/cruiseships/hospitalships dockable.

For cloaking in Read me, read radar invisible.

Does anyone else find that these ships are a bit too common? Each time I launch from a station there are like 3 or 4 megaships milling around.

Is this intentional, or have I broken something in my config?

@Mysenses. I'll bring the files in on Monday (i have no internet at home). I just found the first uploading site that was free and not too hard to register with. :)

Any recommendations?


@commonality. Hmmm, I didnt put a chance key in... will update that.

www.box.net is very good. Its free and the link takes you to a blank page with just the file name and a download tag to click to download. You can store about 2 Gs of stuff. Its a 10 Mega limit though per download, but should be fine for OXPS.
My OXPS : The Assassins Guild, Asteroid Storm, The Bank of the Black Monks, Random Hits and Renegade Pirates can be downloaded from the Elite Wiki here.

Come on guys, its not that bad. True you click the link, then get a coffee while the timer counts down, then get your download.


But it is only one timer, and it works cross browser (well, it works in Camino, which I assume means on any more mainstream browser).

Give the guy as break, he found a free hosting solution to put some of his work on. Im sure if anyone hasa better host, he will be happy to move the files.

Fair enough...still does not help me download though. I take it it is the green "download" button cause when I click on it it just repeats the count down and opens pop ups?

ah ha, if you are on aol, then I think you are suffering from aol sucks rather than uploading.com sucks.

All my experiences of aol are that the browser sucks real bad, and that the internet doesnt work porperly unless you use something else (my preference was k-meleon, but firefox is probably most sensible choice).
