Oh, and *man* that thing is big!
It is a station inside a station. Cool concept. :-)

Unfortunately this is completely ignored by the docking computer. Or the ILS?

Yeah, as mentioned in my initial post i found the autodock was about to go catastrophically wrong and had to quickly abort - i don't know how it works, i think the lore was that you had to fly to the buoy to make the approach, is it looking for something like that? it should be no real prob to manually dock though, it's a standard size dock and it doesn't rotate :-D

Seems we need to understand the docking computer's algorithm. I have seen it twist and turn many times, always from the pilot's seat that I feel completely dizzy.

Would be nice to see the approach from the station or a third spot in space.

Where is the docking computer code to be found anyway?

I tried to find some code but actually got lost. Here is what I found:

@KW: Is it possible to help the docking computer to simply have an extremely long docking tunnel? Your station just needs a straight line that starts further out than on usual stations. And it has been asked previously:

by, ummmm, yourself... Is this in any way connected to your Isis project?

Hopefully this works!
Thy eminence!

Just poking around in the entrails of this OXP.

I notice that the planetinfo.plist features Zaonce (0,129) rather than Cebior (1,195)!

Code: Select all

{
    "0 129" = {
           "script_actions" = (
                "checkForShips: KWii", 					
                {
                     conditions = ("shipsFound_number lessthan 1");
                     do = ( "addSystemShips: KWii 1 1.0" );
                }
          ); 
     }; //added semicolon
}
Does this need updating?

KW's station OXP is the HQ of Isis Interstellar which builds all the Isis Interstellar ships & stations (the older OXPs).

tch! well spotted, i obviously missed that during my testing and was tryng to spawn at a specific place. i should change it, but i'm guessing it's immaterial since the other scripty things in the oxp make it work? or has anyone found glitches?
