I found these error messages in my latest.log and understand that at least two of them come from this OXP:
Can you try this version of the shipdata.plist: assassins guild shipdata.zip

I converted the XML to OpenStep, and converted the subentities to the new format. Seems to work on my PC.
Thank you. What a massive difference!!

ATOM throws up these sections as problematic:

You and NiteOwl have between you gotten me to the point where I can bung in commas and semi-colons and get things to work. Here the stuff in between the commas needs bunging in - and I'm out of my depth!

I can't fix this sort of thing.

But how does one go about doing so? How would one work out the missing co-ordinates?





And my latest.log shows this:

It shouldn’t matter what Atom says. What does Oolite say? Are you getting errors in the log?

Spot on! Fixed!!

Now the issue of the ghastly looking stations needs to be fixed, and this one might just be sorted!

that looks like Oolite's spawned the classic dodo station but also added to it the faceplate and the dock subentities from the newer dodo model, maybe from a clash of oxp's and shipdata.plist entiries for the dodo fighting each other to get loaded?


possible fix
in assassins, in all the shipdata plist items with this line

like_ship = "dodecahedron-station";


comment out the model = "new-dodo.dat"; line, ( change them to // model = "new-dodo.dat"; ) or if that generates missing model warnings in the log, change the entire line to

Code: Select all

model = "oolite_dodo.dat";
maybe that will fix it?

Cholly, if you do a search through the shipdata file, look for every instance of this:

Code: Select all

		model = "new-dodo.dat";
and change it to this:

Code: Select all

		//model = "new-dodo.dat";
I think there's about 6 of them. Because they're all like_shipping the "dodecaherdon-station", they need to use the base Oolite model, but in the data it's saying to use the old model. So, just by removing the model entries everything should be sweet.

Seeing the difference in size between the classic station and the face of the newer one makes me remember v1.0 of that model was too small, EricWalch pointed out everyone had to dock their anacondas and boas sideways if they wanted to get in with all the paintwork intact :)

tales of blood-curdling terror.
But - the new dodo is of course gaudily garnished with all the "GalCop" gubbins on every face.



Maybe those stations should be replaced with something else? A Kiota for example? Or a de-logo-ized Taranis?

The 6 are:
Griff Research Ltd Orbital Base (a shipyard of some sort? But there are factories on the planet surface. ... a SIRF? Kiota Research station?)
Hesperides Wiseguy Way-Station (mafiosi drug trading station. A Traders Outpost?)
Deep Space Hoopy Hotels: Eszausvean gas giants: Lernean Branch & Hades Branch (Use Sothis? Or Nephthys? OR the coming new NUIT which will take liners?)
Liberty Station: don't understand the background of this one - Eszausvean dictatorship? People's popular front?
Augeaian Orbital Repair Facility: (SIRF?)

Reference: https://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Oolite_Stations (screenshots of almost every station - not every Kiota or Strangers World station)

Littlebear!



Now that we have the ability to exclude oxp's via the manifest.plist, are there any oxp's which wreck your missions?

Telescope? (Note: Stuff is hide-able from Telescope)

Navigation Beacons MFD?

Target Tracker/SniperLock?

Various player uber-ships? (Caduceus/Dark Rainbow...)

Stranger's World/Additional planets planetary posiitoning?
