Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

I'd assumed it was populated by insectoids as the Buoy that appears next to the station is called:- name = "Wasp Buoy"; So for the naming key I'd gone for insectiod type names as Insects are members of GalCop and the station is operating openly in the space lanes. I'd kinda assumed therefo...

Re: MasterClass: How to OXP (updating SoThisTC)

Hi, Sothis is one of the OXPs I'm naming in Random Station names. In terms of keeping things Cannon I’ve handwaved the fact that the Gal Cop translator clearly cannot translate insectoid communications correctly. This is why Thagoid transmissions appear as meaningless English words such as “Eat Park...

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

OXP Planets, Moons and Gas Giants are now also named, as are Stars. All naming options (Stars, Planets, Moons, Main Station, OXP Stations and WItchpoint Beacons) can be individually toggeled on or off under settings. Still not quite finished setting up the planet names. Moons are done. Units can als...

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

Night Shift with no call outs, so I finished off the Galactic Almanac Code. Spara’s In-System Distances OXP was really helpful in playtesting Random Station Names as it shows every object with a beacon in the local system. So I could quickly check that the names of all the stations in the system wer...

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

The nature of the OXP is that I don't think V1 will contain bugs as it can't really break the game. But I'm bound to have made typos and spelling errors somewhere. It is possible that there might be two stations (but several galaxies apart) with the same name if the random number god was a bit unkin...

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

It was quite a local issue. The trees of the Old Forest provided the perfect environment for raising high quality edible grubs. When the Planning Permission Application was lodged, there were strong objections from the Laveian Tree Grub Farmers Association as to the effect this project would have on...

Corrected to Riverside Sector, Ashoria. Was the Old Forest Sector until they cut down all the trees to build the Bureau of Records, now known locally as the Riverside Sector :wink:

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

Teaser below. Still to do are:- Roll off names for the keys for other OXPers to use. Add the Local List of Stations to the F4 screen. Add an options menu to allow other OXPers to procedurally generate names in game to use in their own OXPs. Add Galaxtic News updates. https://i.imgur.com/2sJQoDE.png ...

Re: Oolite Wiki

I have a vauge memoray that Dr Nill did a racing teams OXP where he took ships from other OXPs and gave them a respray to give them team colours and racing numbers. In the same way that the road version of a car has a normal paint job, but when it is being raced in a rally then it has a number and v...

Re: The Assassins Guild OXP (Final Updated Version)

I think the code still works so you can play through the missions. However, this was my first OXP written about 15 years ago. Back in the day NPCs were really dumb and Military lasers where much less powerful.The cloacking device was a bit of a game breaker as ships would completley ignore you even ...

Re: Random Station Names OXP

More random ship names that inspired me. I'd not played Oolite for a long time and that feature really blew me away. As I'd used procedual generation to create the adverts in Random Hits and I could see Random Ship names was doing the same thing. So when I had an hour or two to play Oolite I thought...

Re: Random Station Names OXP

For supporting other OXPs and preventing conflicts (and to allow easy changes by players), the way I've done it is:- For players. If there is a station you would like to name, either because its your home system or you just don't like the name assigned to it: Open the OXP's script.js file with a tex...

Re: Which tool for tweaking OXZ files for iMac?

Not sure about the Mac Version of Notepad, but the first rule of OXPing on a PC is Thou Shalt Not Use Notpad. The windows version of Note Pad completley mangels the file format and often means Oolite won't read a file saved in notepad. Anything where you have the option to turn on line numbers and s...

Re: Which tool for tweaking OXZ files voor iMac?

They will, but if you want to fiddle with them:- Go to the Expansion Pack Manager in Game. Select List OXPS. It will now show you the list of OXPs you have installed as OXZ files. Highlight the one you want to fiddle with and press X. Oolite will then extrat the OZX to a folder in AddOns. The folder...
