Save In Flight OXP v1.0.0

Post by dybal »

Save in Flight OXP v1.0.0 is available here and on the Expansion Manager.

This OXP allows tha player to save the game wihtout the need to dock to a deterministic station.

That's done through a new primeable equipment, Save In Flight, available at TL 1 systems for 0.1 credits.

To save, the player must move away from other ships until the scanner is empty (no ships, asteroids, cargo pods, derelicts, wreckage, sparks, etc.), stop the player ship (speed must be 0), then prime and activate the Save In Flight equipment.

The player ship will be moved to the Station at End of the Universe, where the player can save the game, load another savegame, exit the game.

When the player launches from the Station at End of the Universe, the player ship is moved to the last position the Save In Flight equipment was activated.

This OXP was created based on cim's suggestions here

Great job! For any new Oolite commanders reading this- put this OXZ on your short list to install right off the bat- before the pretty graphics or big-laser-pew-pew-guns. I've been making some tweaks to help preserve the illusion of being in space & not in-station. One of them is restoring the occupied cargo space of g/kg-based goods on launch (been doing lots of mining lately). Anyway- thanks for making this!

Oops! Forgot about that!

If you PM me you modifications to deal with that I will gladly include them in the OXP.

Still pretty cheap considering that the journey to the end of the universe could take a while. :lol:

BTW do you have any opinion regarding this topic: viewtopic.php?f=3&p=287132#p287132
Scars remind us where we've been. They don't have to dictate where we're going.

Since I never had a passenger berth installed, I never even saw a taxi contract... I looked at the Taxi Galactica OXP code and its contract creation only refers to the system, presumably the main station, so any contract to deliver a passenger to an specific in-system station must come from somewhere else...

Do you know who created that contract? Perhaps the code responsible looks for script_info to restrict a station from its possible destinations...

Is it possible to make this work in witch space?

It would be nice to be able to interrupt a long Thargoid scrap mission other than just pausing it.

Probably not easily, I would think. I don’t think it’s possible to start a game in interstellar space.

Would this be a useful tweak for the vanilla game code? I just tried saving at the Tionisla Reporter station and discovered - as you said - that I couldn't.

For my game at the moment it makes little difference. But it would enhance possibilities for future missions - and Mr Flibble has shown that others have a need.

Not sure I’d categorise this as a “tweak”. Even without looking at the code, my feeling is it would be a right pita to get working right, lots of places you would potentially have to adjust to cope with there not being a “system” when you start the game, to say nothing about the impact on OXPs. It’s not out of the question, just that I think there are much bigger fish to fry before talking this one!
