Re: Stranger's Roolite Essay #1 (adding flavour & depth to Galaxy 1)

@Cholmondely Just travel about a bit. Shortly after you watch a news broadcast mentioning a bungled investigation by the Tionisla Chronicle, you will receive an email from the Scribe asking you to meet him at the Zadies main station. (Requires the Galactic Almanac V0.7 and GNN News to be installed)....

Re: Interface Reordering OXP

Made the changes to the Almanac script (thanks for the line numbers). Given it a quick test and it seems to work fine with the Re-Ordering OXP. I'll put a v0.8 on the manager over the weekend hopefully, but I'm still having a problem uploading a file to the Wiki, as if I try to upload a ,oxz file it...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Full Version 0.7 (Updated to 0.7 on 09.06.22)

The conflict is unavoidable really as Planetary Compass will name all the planets with the name of the system ie: Lave II, Lave III etc and you can't really have two packs naming the planets and moons. Although In System cargo delivery has planetary compass as a requirement, this is only because it'...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Full Version 0.7 (Updated to 0.7 on 09.06.22)

I have a log-in but:-

1) I cant seem to upload a .oxz file to the wiki as it will only accept .png, .jpeg etc.
2) How do I put a URL in the Manifest folder, when I don't know the url until I've uploaded the whole file including the manifest?

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Full Version 0.7 (Updated to 0.7 on 09.06.22)

Update to V07. This is the final completed version of the OXP and adds 7 more News Broadcasts and an optional non-combat mission. I haven't worked out how to use the expansion pack manager, so if anyone is able to add it to the Manager then please feel free to do so. I will update to a final V1.0 in...

Re: Conversion to Cavezzi

The game's code always returns distances in game meters. So you just need to know how many meters are in the unit you want to convert the number returned in meters into. There are 2.08641 meters in 1 Cavezzi, 1609.34 meters in a mile and (obviously) 1,000 meters in a KM. As the Almanac uses user-sel...

Additionally: Fixes a bug where with Planetary Systems installed moons and planets added by any other OXZ had their orbital positions mis-numbered. Adds names t...

Added naming arrays for the extra stations. Still doing the code to auto-name stations released after the Galactic Almanac though. Test below shows 4 of the stations appearing in the same system... http://i.imgur.com/ZODInTq.png http://i.imgur.com/LC9beNe.png http://i.imgur.com/STsXqm4.png http://i....

Re: YouTube playthroughs

Saw you were having some difficulties targeting things. Normally you can only target an object if it is within 25km away. Telescope OXZ changes this an allows you to target Stations and Planets however far away they are. However, telescope will lock onto the nearest station / planet, so you can find...

Re: Scripters cove

You could do it by adding a script to the station as it will only detect you when you come within scanner ranger. If you have a look at the station script for the Space Bars in Random Hits, they have some code to send a greetings message (if the player is clean) or a warning message if not:- if (pla...

Re: Education

Setting choices is needed for that. But it's fairly easy to do. If you want to be particularly cunning you can cross-ref to descriptions for some random descriptions of the drinks. in mission text set up some choices like this:- "bar_names_menu1" = { "1_DRINK1" = "Order [bar...

Re: Education

Having a "Visit the Station Bar" on the F4 Screen might be a way to go for that. This script would let you give a randomly picked item each time. Although you might want to also add a timer so the messages change over time. You could also add tests for Government type, economy or station t...

Re: Education

I think news broadcasts with GNN would be quite an immersive way of introducing these sort of things. Information about missions at special stations could be done with a news item reporting on the fact. Guidance on how to do cargo contracts could be given indirectly by the news reporting on the mis-...
