UPDATED OXP: Kestrel&Falcon 1.70.1

Post by Kaks »

Kaks Korp, the testing and R&D subsidiary of Benulobiweed Inc, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the revamped Kestrel and Falcon models!

A lot of minor problems have been ironed out, and a couple of bugs that caused oolite to crash mid-flight have been removed.

This oxp is compatible with Oolite 1.65 and 1.70+. Due to script incompatibilites, the comms chatter from falcons and kestrels is now only available on Oolite 1.70 and up.

Have a look at the included readme before installing this oxp: forewarned is foreamed! :P

edit:
Download link: Kestrel&Falcon v1.70.1 - updated kestrel AI

Any feedback greatly appreciated. :)

Cheers,

Kaks

Thank you!:)

Hopefully your opinion won't change after a week or so of testing it! :D

Testing successful so far

No more ... must not say crashes, more like ... unintended game endings because of falcon & kestrel any more :D

* looks around * Ahruman said I must not say crashing. So I don`t. * shivers * * sneaks away * :twisted:

Me too, but it really doesn`t look like it. Found a buyable Falcon-S in the shipyard for the very first time. Cool! 8)

Perhaps I could divert your attention to another Benulobiweed ... creativity? :twisted:

The Condor.oxp! I found out that the Condor was supposed to be a buyable, 1200 t Cargo, 16 missiles & 22 energy banks Uber ship for the small sum of 5.5 million Cr! :shock:

I thought that was cool and found & corrected the typo that would stop the Condor to appear in the shipyard. But alas, the game ... ended unintentionally * looks over shoulder * ... while starting up. I changed the ridiculous missile & energy banks settings down but no luck.

Perhaps you might have a look in there what`s going on :?:

Hopeful @ the Kaks :)

Unfortunately, the file is too big to upload directly to the wiki, though I'm going to put a link to the oxp there asap.

Please try the following alternative link: Kestrel&Falcon1.70 hopefully, this should work a bit better.

The Kestrel’s AI has an error that will cause it to crash in earlier versions of Oolite. (The error is caught in 1.70 and probably 1.69.)

Oops. :oops: Just upholding Benulobiweed traditions, honest! :)

Thanks for finding that. Here's v1.70.1, with a better kestrel AI.

Something is wrong with Falcon's laser. I can hardly hit anything. It seems that it strikes somewhere to the left of the cross/screen center.

Yes, that's intentional. The laser itself is coming from the centre of the ship, but your viewpoint is from the side. It takes a while to get used to, but after a while everything seems to click into place...

On the other hand, docking manually with a Falcon is £$@#*&% near impossible.

I just noticed the kestrel&Falcon.oxp on the wiki was never updated and its script contains code that does no longer work with Oolite 1.73

I just updated it to version 1.71
