Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

No problems. My writing and Oolite playing time are pretty much the same thing as I've been writing the OXZ as I play. The new Jameson I started is now deadly and I've ticked off all the Explorers Club Goals playtesting with System Redux installed. Its one of those things that should really work wit...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

Rock Hermits not appearing on the ASC or the Galactic Almanac Screens is normal Oolite behaviour. Apart from some unique ones such as the Link Base, Rock Hermits do not transmit ID-Beacons so will not be listed by the Galactic Almanac or on the ASC. If however you have Rock Hermit locator installed ...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

Sorry for the delay in replying. Had to work out how to optimise the identification code first to make it playable. I'm afraid I've been more geeky than just checking the manifest for the writer, as the same writer often releases ships and stations through different design companies in terms of lore...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

The MFD is now done. In fight Data on the system is shown at the top (name, tech level, government, economy, inhabitants, local star name and number of worlds and stations present). Data on the current object targeted with the ASC is displayed underneath. For natural objects this is the name, class ...

Re: the sun is too bright

I'd recommend distant suns. Most Suns are moved further out and dimmed. Cooler and dimmer stars with subtle colours are also added. Occasionally you will come across a system with a star as bright as the default as it is an unusual super-massive star but that's kinda okay when it's an occasional fea...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

@Cholmondely. The Almanac does not change the stations or types of stations present in the game, it just names any stations / planets / moons which are present. Unless you have an OXZ installed which changes Lave Station from the default Coriolis then it will be a Coriolis, but with the name assigne...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

@Cholmondely Could you take this Beta 1.4 out for a spin? What it should do is this: If Strangers World replaces the main station then it should be named as the main station. If Strangers World adds additional stations then these should all be named using the same names pool as those used by Extra S...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

Hmm. If they were the main station then they would be named as the main station. Oolite will only allow one station in the system to be the main station. Every other station is added as an OXZ station, so he will be adding them by a custom role as this is the only way to add stations. You can replac...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

Thanks. I'm a bit short of Oolite time atm, but would you mind just testing something for me with the Stranger stations which are currently unamed. Bear with me as I'll just have to give a quick summary of what these two OXZs are doing and how the Galactic Almanac works with either OXZ installed. Th...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

Thanks Guys, I'm totally stumped as to why windows did not throw a wobbely and refuse to run with the double comma. Not quite as dramatic as the case where "a man's life hung upon a comma" (https://www.theguardian.com/education/2019/jun/27/the-man-hanged-because-of-a-comma)! I'll upload a ...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

I'm not sure why not having a space after the // would make a difference. But the characters //" only appear at the line that seems to be causing a problem. Could you try this Beta 1.2 ? This is the same but will all the commenting out removed in the first key and just the general examples key ...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

Grr. Still Broken. All of the OXZs files are being read correctly on the Mac except descriptions.plist. Oolite is very picky both on windows or mac about a single illegal charcter or a single missed , " or a non-standard chracter. If there is a single one missing in the decriptionss file in all...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

I've only added names rather than changing the stations themselves, so it won't fix an issue with an existing station. V1.1 should work as I used the mission.text file (which I know the Mac is reading), deleted its text and put the descriptions text in a copy of it. That should mean whatever hidden ...

Could you try this V1.1? If the descriptions file now works on the Mac, I'll update the link to this one:-
