Taranis 2.0

Post by phkb »

Taranis 2.0 has been released and is available in the download manager. Once again, I'm starting a new thread for this one, rather than resurrecting one of the older ones.

In this version
  • Converted XML plist files to OpenStep.
  • Updated station textures and market script.
  • Updated subentities to use new definitions.
  • Updated Wolf Mark II to use Griff's models and textures.
  • Updated station spawning code so that it is possible to save the game at the Taranis HQ.
  • Added New Cargoes station functionality.
  • Fixed issue with docking port, where you would seem to pass through the back of the docking port and view the large blue globe in the middle of the station before the docking animation started.
I'm rather pleased with the way the station turned out. I've posted this to the screenshots thread, but for completeness here it is again:

Available via the Expansion Manager. Wiki page is here: [EliteWiki] Taranis OXP

Let me know if you run into any issues with it.

Screen shot looks superb!

But not showing in my game - and I get this in Latest.log:

22:56:59.331 [script.javaScript.exception.unexpectedType] ReportJSError (OOJavaScriptEngine.m:204): ***** JavaScript exception (taranis_one 2.0): TypeError: system.addShips("[taranis]", 1, pos, 0) is null
"taranis_station":{"deterministic":1,"location":"COORDINATES","coordinates":[18533.791015625,160232.640625,411740]},


There seemed to be no issues with the previous version, so I presume that is it not the rest of my OXP cocktail gumming up the works...

Can I assume that your normal OXP cocktail means the full SW suite? Can you try without SW and let me know if there's a difference? I've just uploaded a new version anyway (because I hadn't updated the manifest file version number correctly), but you shouldn't need this version to test.

Same thing, I'm afraid:

Code: Select all

01:07:58.213 [script.javaScript.exception.unexpectedType] ReportJSError (OOJavaScriptEngine.m:204): ***** JavaScript exception (taranis_one 2.0): TypeError: system.addShips("[taranis]", 1, pos, 0) is null
  "taranis_station":{"deterministic":1,"location":"COORDINATES","coordinates":[18533.791015625,160232.640625,411740]},
01:17:25.802 [script.javaScript.exception.unexpectedType] ReportJSError (OOJavaScriptEngine.m:204): ***** JavaScript exception (taranis_one 2.0): TypeError: system.addShips("[taranis]", 1, pos, 0) is null
  "taranis_station":{"deterministic":1,"location":"COORDINATES","coordinates":[18533.791015625,160232.640625,411740]},
First is from being in the system (save-game at Lerelace). Second is after jumping out and then jumping back in again (in case the save-game remembered which stations are in the current system).

Is there anything upstream in the log to indicate some other problems? Things like a shipdata.plist file not able to be read, things like that?

OK, found a missing ";" in the shipdata. Version 2.0.2 should be available in the Expansion Manager shortly.

Fixed the semicolon (the AppleMac terminal gives you the line number for one mistake - for more than one you get the ubiquitous and unhelpful message about the Unexpected character { at line 1

And indeed, your new station looks superb.

But ILS insisted on taking me in at 90° to the docking slot! "Press Space, Commander!"

OK, Taranis 2.0.5 is out now, which should correct (or hide) the issue with the dock walls disappearing when you enter it. And because there is a standard dock object now, ILS *should* work (although I haven't tested that).

Works nicely for me,looks like a 'normal' docking sequence

Thanks, Griff! I was pleased with how this one turned out with a bit of spit and polish!
