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:-

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

Edit. [Problem I think is invisable windows characters being inserted at line 1. The .plist is a Mac format so when run on a Mac it has to be exactly right for the Mac to read it. The windows versions of Oolite doesn't care if Windows has added invisable characters and so runs with no errors reporte...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

The Descriptions file is definatley broken on your OS (but fine on mine). I'll just have to break mine by putting an illegal charcter in and than I can walk you through how to spot it..... To get a report First can you install LogEvents from the Manager. This won't effect gameplay, but it will log e...

The Abandoned Rock Hermits are added by Spara's Spiecey Hermits OXP. Normally they just appear as "Abandoned Rock Hermit". But as a handwave that on being abandoned the GAL-ID unit was removed and so the have the same name format I just added to the dispay names ": GAL-ID Unit Off Lin...

Re: [Beta] Release of Station Options 1.0

I'm not sure if this helps, but this is some code I've been using to get things in (reasonabley) neat tables to get round the fact that there isn't the equivilent of a Tab command with text in Oolite. This code was shamlessly cribbed from Spara's In System Disstances. Set the text you want to format...
