Re: Cockpits, HUDs and other displays

Looking at what might be fun to have published via MQTT, I drilled in: > Object.getOwnPropertyNames(PS) ["manifest", "activeMissile", "aftShield", "aftShieldRechargeRate", "chartHighlightMode", "compassMode", "compassTarget", &quo...

Re: OoliteStarter

The link you posted redirects me to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxford_Parkway_railway_station. Just up the road from where I'm writing this! How on earth did that railway station get a mention? I see what happened. I hit Wikipedia link rather than Wiki. I now know the three letter code for Oxfor...

Re: OoliteStarter

I'm not sure there is a 'right' way. If you look at OXP , perticularly the "AddOns and Managed AddOns folders", you'll see that on Linux there are three possible locations, and at least two of those could be in use at the same time. The link you posted redirects me to https://en.wikipedia...

Re: OoliteStarter

Ah!! Looking at my somewhat more weathered Linux setup, we're talking about the 'manually installed' addons! On Linux by default (for me) it's $HOME/GNUstep/Applications/Oolite/AddOns So... Does that have a default location on the Mac, and if so, should it not get pre-populated by starter? I'm happ...

Re: OoliteStarter

Does starter oxp only manifest during a run? Sometimes (on both MacOS) I get a grumble about it being a duplicate. You guessed right: It gets injected by OoliteStarter just before Oolite is fired up, and it gets removed right after Oolite terminates. Let me know what to prod next. Not sure. You are...

Re: OoliteStarter

A couple of observations. (back on my well-lived in Linux setup) I've just updated to the latest dev build of Oolite. Starter noticed something had changed, but I see no easy 'refresh this entry' button to simply update the version. I could copy and paste it somehow, although there's no --version a...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

The book category is still wanting, but remember I'm looking for one that's not commonly found in the other formats listed. Also a stage production, or in the absence of that, a good second answer in one of the other categories will be accepted. This makes things a little tricky, because every book...

Re: OoliteStarter

WIlco. When I''m sure of the situation above. Also.. does 1.90 take that args to load save games on the other platforms? I've not tried it. See here: https://bb.oolite.space/viewtopic.php?p=291772#p291772 This is a strange error. Could you post your $HOME/.oolite-starter.conf? <AddonDir/> This is w...

Re: OoliteStarter

I think Catalina will have to be put out to pasture soon-ish, though for now, what gets built there ought to work for that "and up", whereas building on 'latest' will often have backwards compatibility issues. Yes, the best we can do right now is to mention it in the readme. Feel free to a...

Re: OoliteStarter

The positive side of being offline was that I checked OoliteStarter and the build process' behaviour when no network resources are available. And yes, there was room for improvement. This latest build will behave meaningful if oolite.space is not there: - No OXPs can be installed - but you can stil...

Does a novelette count as "book"? I do have one, but I'd prefer to give someone else a chance first.
Podium #4 is available and I'm feeling kind, so I'll accept a novelette.
