Re: Joysticks

Have to agree with Cody on this one. My first Logitech Extreme 3D Pro was good for about 15 years. In the past year or so it began to develop the drifting problems you described in your original post along with some throttle issues. <snip> Mine worked well for about one year, then the false inputs ...

Re: [RELEASE] Hyperspace Hangar OXP

Once a ship is chosen, a screen is displayed with data on the transfer: transit time and cost... the background is...

Re: [Beta] Release of Telescope 2.0

Re: [RELEASE] ILS Instrument Landing System v1.13

It rotates a few degrees then switch to the in-station screens? No crash? Yes, no crash so far. I haven't tried it at low speeds so unsure if it's just the final frame. I think I found out what is happening... it's not that the playership's show it as docked before the docking tunnel animation, it'...

Re: The Elite Dangerous Navigation System

Doesn't Telescope Extender do this? Distant dockables/beacons appear as dimmed flags on the edge of your scanner - and as green ID-able dots in the sky. On scanner - see faded green flags at 11 o'clock and at 3 o'clock On viewscreen - see green dot on left (above the Coriolis) - it is a beacon for ...

Re: Save In Flight OXP v1.0.0

Unintended consequence of this OXP: a taxi contract offer for 190135cr to take a passenger from the main station to the station at the end of the universe. Since I never had a passenger berth installed, I never even saw a taxi contract... I looked at the Taxi Galactica OXP code and its contract cre...

Re: [RELEASE] ILS Instrument Landing System v1.15

After a while, it gets boring... Dybal - thank you for the update to ILS (v1.15) - I'm looking forwards to landing the right-way up! Hopefully... I found something that could explain it and fixed, but I haven't docked anywhere I could be certain of which side of the dock is up since my commander &q...

Re: [RELEASE] ILS Instrument Landing System v1.13

Using 1.15 (and 1.14 until the update), my Kirin Sport starts rotating inside the dock (or loses sync with the station rotation?) during the final moments of approach. Haven't tried with other ships. It rotates a few degrees then switch to the in-station screens? No crash? If yes, I have seen it to...

Re: Survey: What is your Oolite playing style?

First, I run _a lot_ of OXPs... some of them change the game mechanics (like the variation of HardWay I run, modified to make everybody, NPCs inclusive, need fuel for everything), others add whole new careers (like Towbar, that adds salvaging derelicts, and EscortDeck, that adds *usable* derelicts t...

Re: Planetary Systems

Here is an idea how to improve a bit compatibility with OXPs that use relative coordinate systems in the system populator functions - Add a method for them that will allow them to set up the system before they start working with their coordinates like this: <snip> Dirty as your previous solution wa...

Re: Save In Flight OXP v1.0.0

Great job! For any new Oolite commanders reading this- put this OXZ on your short list to install right off the bat- before the pretty graphics or big-laser-pew-pew-guns. I've been making some tweaks to help preserve the illusion of being in space & not in-station. One of them is restoring the ...

Re: Stuck in Interstellar Space

Fuel level was unavoidable, it was a 6.9ly jump with no alternative route. The only thing I wondered, there was a cobra already there when I arrived, and we both survived the skirmish, but he didn’t jump out, but started shooting at me instead! So he didn’t last very long I’m afraid..! For those lo...
