Re: [RELEASE] DH-Adv. Nav. Comp & Emer. Witchspace Inititator

what about when I enter the witchspace from totally the wrong angle? *handwavium* Having the correct angle of alignment is only required when opening a wormhole - once the wormhole is established, it will auto-align any vessels entering it's sphere of influence, so there is no further need to align...

do I need to follow the order there or is the ordering done automatically by wiki?
It's best to follow the order when inserting a new item. I think the list can be sorted, but the initial display is based on what's entered on the page.

Re: Docking Computer

I always assumed the Blue Danube was a reference to 2001 A Space Oddisey It was, which Bell and Braben leveraged/paid homage to in the original Elite by having it play with the docking computer. Of course, my experience with the original was that it was quite likely to crash, which made the gentle ...

Re: Recovering "Lost" OXPs

who wrote Monument? Are you referring to the TOGY Monuments OXP? If so, that one's not lost - it should be available on the download manager. Unless you mean TOGY Memorials - that was was released by smivs. I sent him an updated version while I was doing the re-release of TOGY so he could publish i...

and to destroy
For a RH, lasers will work as well. (Note to self: need to make sure player-owned RH's that are destroyed stay gone, and maybe in 3-6 months time are replaced by an NPC owned one).

Re: (WIP) Hermitage

I was not aware that one could buy orbital stations as well as rock hermits. Well, from this OXP's perspective, it's only giving you the opportunity to buy a Rock Hermit. I'm not aware of another OXP that allows the purchase of other stations. but is it any fun? That's the big question with this OX...

what is the collective noun for a bevy of pirates?
Not 100% sure, but a "mutiny of pirates" sounds good.

Re: Combat is too hard with a keyboard

say I drop into a system to deliver a valuable parcel, get jumped by an overwhelming force of assassins and have to eject, after some time (hours/days) I arrive at the main station. Does my parcel get delivered and do I get paid? If you still manage to arrive before expiry, yes. If you arrive after...

I added some comments to the code above to make it clearer what changes are required. I'm sure you'd probably worked this out, but just in case.

Re: BPlanets

I wonder if the game planet generator can be eventually tweaked to create planets looking this good. (Response from total non-grahpics guy) I imagine one huge hurdle we'd have to overcome is the time taken to render - the planet texture needs to be generated and loaded very quickly to keep the game...

Re: [Release] Market inquirer

I'm just dipping my toes into the .oxp programming thing: is there any way that I might be able to do any of this stuff myself? Any tips? Try this out. In the "\Config\script.js" file, go to line 357. The section should look something like this: //select correct options var options = { "0_SELECT" :...

Could not one utilise the left/right arrow keys for this as one does with so many of the other screens in the game
Limitations on mission screens prevents the use of left/right/pg up/pg dn keys. The best we could do is default the menu selection to something other than "Exit"

I think there were OXPs that did that (inflicted equipment damage to NPCs) in the past, but if so they are lost.
Ngalo's NPC Equipment Damage is once of them, and should still be available.

And Ship Configuration has some elements of NPC equipment damage involved (if memory serves!)

Re: (WIP) Hermitage

Welcome aboard, commander!

I'd be interested in hearing back on how your game progressed when starting with so much. What choices did you make, what strategies did you follow, that sort of thing.
