... in the sense that we are not all-seeing, I suppose. I now bow out of this subject, except to add that I was probably under the illusion that this sub-forum is about scriptng questions and OXZ release/update announcements...
Dor 'call me Grocer' Reval (a Xexedian Laver) was always considered a little backward.

Quitd so, this discussion of this oxp seems exactly the place to raise deprecation warnings to the author. Far from irrelevant, the whole reason we have deprecation is to allow things to be fixed before they break and letting people know is an important first step.

Download LaveAcademy_2.1.oxz

Image

What's in the box:
Version 2.0, Updated Academy textures, added normal map and specular map, switched to using default Oolite shaders.
Turned off "smooth" on the Academy definition.
Made it possible to save your game at the Academy.
Switched Academy Waymarker Buoy to use default Oolite buoy.
Tweaked text of F4 interface entry.
Added interface to Library Config for controlling when to spawn Academies.
Spawning settings now saved with the save game.
Changed course progression messages to always come from the associated marker buoy.
Added a docking texture for BGS.
Code refactoring.

I’ll update the manager next week, assuming there are no issues found in the meantime.

Just to add this (from the AppleMac's Terminal "plutil" faultfinder)

Code: Select all

2024-02-23 09:20:06.794 plutil[20799:1036895] CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData(): Old-style plist parser: missing semicolon in dictionary on line 166. Parsing will be abandoned. Break on _CFPropertyListMissingSemicolon to debug.
But according to ATOM there seemed nothing wrong there - and adding a semicolon at the beginning or at the end of the line wrecked the syntax according to it.

OK, try this version: LaveAcademy_2.1.oxz
Based on what I fixed, has Lave Academy *ever* worked on a Mac?

The old version worked just fine. I even managed one or two of the training packages!
