After pulling the core contracts onto the bulletin board, I thought it might be useful to include contracts from other OXP's as well, where those contracts are offered through a separate F4 interface. Here's what I've achieved so far:
- Escort Contracts
- Rescue stations
- Random Hits
I think I've managed to transfer the interface logic successfully, but if I've messed something up please let me know. There is one more step though. By default I'm not moving all these missions into the BB. I thought there might be some who prefer the original interfaces of those OXP's. So, in order to turn on the process of moving contracts onto the BB, after you install the pack you either need to edit the "contracts_on_bb.js" file and change some flags manually, or preferrably, install the Library OXP and then use the config options to turn it on. There are three flags to set, one for each OXP.
Apart from the Mining Contracts OXP, I don't know of any other current mission pack that adds them via an F4 interface and the player has the option of choosing the one they want. If I've missed one, again, please let me know and I'll see about adding it into the mix.
ContractsOnBB.oxz version 0.3 now available from the download manager or the wiki
[Edit] Version 0.4 is now available, which fixes the default settings for OXP inclusion. I had the default set to true, meaning all OXP's would be included. This should have been false, and is corrected in the new version.
Apologies to anyone who was confused.
