Nevertheless, compo-packs are a better alternative to pre-packaging OXPs. I'm still in favor of a dedicated category for compo-packs or consistently using Systems category. We can't get rid of them after all.

No, we can't. In some ways, the OXZ manager is out of control.

:shock: Is there really a distro out there that packages some OXPs with Oolite? That's a new one.
Hmm.. that's rather disturbing and concerning, actually.

Mazur, could you tell us a bit more about this particular RPM, please? What version of Oolite is it? Doing some googling around, the present maintainer for the RPM appears to be Richard W.M. Jones <rjones@r*dh*t.com>, but so far as I can see that's just for v1.80 of Oolite. Is your RPM an official Redhat/Fedora release, or an unofficial one from some other repository?
Oops. Totally overlooked all this discussion.
*looking through the Oolite he installed for clues as to its origin*
There is a release.txt that mentions only this: 1.82.0.6556-150526-a3b98dd
I thought it was a Fedore 21 package, but my yum and rpm report no Oolite in any form.

So I'm thinking they came with the binary release of 1.82: https://github.com/OoliteProject/oolite ... ux-x86.tgz

There is only one OXP installed with the official Oolite binaries and it is the Debug.oxp, which is required for communication with the Debug Console. It is installed only with the Developer Release version of the game.

Yes, it looked like that, when i downloaded it earlier today. Then the only remaining explanation is, that I downloaded some packages by hand and installed them, unpacked, in /opt/Oolite/AddOns/, but I don't remember doing so, nor why I would have picked the particular OXPs for such treatment.

Still, I can't rule out that I did.

The reason for the failed download is listed inside the log:
[oxz.manager.error]: Downloaded OXZ does not have the same identifer and version as expected. This might be due to your manifests list being out of date - try updating it.

Following the fail message from the oxp manager - I've had a quick look at the Latest.log (can't pretend that I know what I am looking at in all honesty) but I did notice a series of outputs which included the following :
13:49:40.103 [version.debug]: oolite.oxp.Norby.Superhub_for_Extra_Planets mv:1.0 mav:1.1
13:49:40.265 [oxz.manager.error]: Downloaded OXZ does not have the same identifer and version as expected. This might be due to your manifests list being out of date - try updating it.

Can anyone advise if this is the issue (or part of it) and what I need to do to remedy the issue I'm experiencing.

Many thanks in advance for any help or guidance that anyone can offer.

Hello!

When to use shaders and when to use materials, are there differences to expect?
When using the same diffuse map it gives me different results.

Materials superhub with diffuse RGB and colored illumination map

The shader supplied with superhub seems to do more than viewing only the diffuse and em map...

Superhub station has finally managed to kill my ship...fortunately I wasn't playing in ironman mode.

A few times ...I've rammed invisible portions of it at the moment of docking and thinking that maybe a ship launched at the same time, but I'm pretty sure now that the model is wrong.

The actual docking point is too far off-center, it's still along the central axis-of-rotation but skewed to the "back".
Coming in to dock from the side closest to the engine extensions, parts extend invisibly behind the edges...so don't try to cut it close!

I'm also saddened that Xexedi TL14 in Galaxy Chart 1 lost its Superhub in the changeover to 45,000 MCr productivity. There's almost no other systems near it which might have it. Lerelace maybe?

Well to be honest in recent ventures to obtain good views/screenshots from superhubs, i came real close and the invisible wall hit me too,
yep dead...
It could be that what we see ( the distance we see ) and the actual collision detection are two different things.

Also happening when flying close up to the outer hull was occasional docking, not handy for taking screenshots,
but superhub has a nice BGS tunnel :) and refuel ...
