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...

Re: Galactic Almanac OXP - Beta 1

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...

Galactic Almanac OXZ - Full Version 0.93 (Updated 04.05.24 - Now on the Expansion Manager)

The OXP is documented on the Wiki at the link below in my signature. The OXZ can be downloaded in game from the Expansion Pack Manager under the Ambiance Category. This OXZ adds unique and persistent names to all stars, planets, gas giants, asteroids and space stations in all 2,048 star systems. Als...

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...

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

Depending on your OXP set up there can actually be quite a lot. I'm playing with Rock Hermit locator installed and it always adds 50 asteroids around each hermit. Playing with OXPs like Salvage Gang as well its quite common to have 200 odd rocks in a system. Names are persitant and an unintended fea...

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

Thanks Guys, Adding a flavour to the Pizzas was more an easter egg / code test. I needed a way of testing the code to read system descriptions and the Pizzas were a good way of testing it. So a system famous for edible poets is assigned a “Poet & Parmesan” flavour pizza, one with edible deadly g...

Cholmondely would you mind having a look and seeing if I've missed anything out?

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

Made a start on a Wiki Page. http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/The_Galactic_Almanac_OXZ On duplications, as the OXZ contains about 250,000 names and there are only about 13,000 stations in the game, they might as well all be used. If there is a duplication, its so easy to change that if anyone spots ...

I think Thargoid had done it with his planatary compass using:- if(this.stellarArray[loopCounter].hasAtmosphere) { this.beacon = system.addVisualEffect("planetaryCompass_planet", this.stellarArray[loopCounter].position); if(this.stellarArray[loopCounter].hasOwnProperty("isGasGiant&quo...

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

Bit Stuck on the right syntax to add a visual effect to the ASC. The code i've got works in the sense all the planets and moons are added to the ASC in the right position and in the right order, but the visual effect of a planet symbol I'm trying to add doesn't produce any errors, but isn't adding t...

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

Bit of Destruction testing now I've finished the looping and multi-paging code. By setting the maximum number of planets and moons in System Redux to 100,000 per system, I was able to get it to add 120 planets and moons to the system. All the extra planets in turn caused Extra Stations for Extra Pla...

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

The Box in the foreground is from BSG. Howerver, I am also playing with HD Backgrounds and HD Backgrounds Image Pack A installed (both on the Manager). The Background Images Pack adds these rather nice transparent images to your display, but plays nicely with BSG and other Sets, so you get different...

Re: Random Station Names OXP (Development Thread)

I'd forgoten that as I only change the display name, changes made by my OXP are read and implemented by other OXPs. You can therefore (without me having to do anything!) already access the Almanc in flight as an MFD with Spara's Market Enquirer OXP. Random Station names adds the name of the star pla...

Re: RELEASED TODAY: Famous Planets OXP

I think it is more that PA Grove decided to re-write his Famous Planets descriptions to fit the textures added by Povey Planets for V2. I'm playing with all 8 Povey Planets packs installed and the current Famous Planets. It's a nice touch from PA Grove as if (for example) his text refers to toxic ye...
