The update doesn’t trigger automatically, but I’ve kicked it off so it should appear in the list shortly.

The question was why the previous version, from a fortnight ago, wasn't appearing!?

Did the file name change?
Edit: The url for the download I mean. Did that change between versions?

Here, try this one please. See if it's the rudiments of something you could ruminate on.

https://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/File: ... lp.oxp.zip
1) New Category entry on the F4 screen: "Help" with only the one listing (which you have only just identified as a matter of grave concern regarding your awarding of doofus points)

2) Only shows when docked at Main Orbital Stations (no help at the Ensorean SuperHub!)

3) Have yet to try selecting a target and jumping to G2


Here's a rumination:

If your druthers take you in this direction, you could make some of your OXP equipment only fittable at the Wildefire Astronomics Laboratories at say the Headquarters in Ceesxe or some such? Or half price there and more expensive everywhere else?

Muppet points. I am not trying to police anyone's doings, I'm trying to raise awareness of this section in descriptions.plist - which has existed for a decade, but which apparently no-one has noticed:-

Code: Select all

	// Interfaces screen
	"interfaces-title"				= "Ship and System Interfaces";
	"interfaces-no-interfaces-available-for-use"	= "No interfaces are installed on your ship or enabled at this station";
	"interfaces-for-ship-@-and-station-@"		= "Interfaces for %@ and %@";
	// standard categories for easy translations
	"interfaces-category-uncategorised"		= "Uncategorised";	
	"interfaces-category-bounties"            	= "Bounties";	
	"interfaces-category-deliveries"          	= "Deliveries";	
	"interfaces-category-employment"          	= "Employment";	
	"interfaces-category-help"                	= "Help";	
	"interfaces-category-logs"                	= "Logs";	
	"interfaces-category-news"                	= "News";	
	"interfaces-category-organisations"       	= "Organisations";	
	"interfaces-category-ship-systems"        	= "Ship Systems";	
As I wrote, when categories proliferate unchecked, they cease to be categories.

Anyway, that is irrelevant now. A kind benefactor has made this for you:

GalacticHyperdrive_1.4.oxz

Chart images back in the galdrive OXP. Let us have your reflections on that one, if you will.

Vetitice. Always has been Vetitice. Those communists don't ask difficult questions about minimum wages, and so on.

Where in Vetitice?

Main Orbital? SLAPU? Astrogulag? Planet Surface?

And what is the name of the company? We have seen Wildefire Avionics & Wildefire Systems. Are there any other instantiations which need to be taken under advisement?



And have you seen Stranger's FPO planet texture for Vetitice?

Re: your new Wildefire_Help.oxp add on for this



Just musing about your "pithy commentary goes here" at the top of the F4 screen on choosing Wildefire HELP/Wildefire avionics.



What might be rather useful would be a summary of the 4 jumpable systems on each of those charts.

eg (G2, alphabetic order):

Ramaan: Democracy, Mainly Industrial, TL 11, 5 Billion Human Colonials
Reenus: Feudal, Average Agricultural, TL 6, 2.8 Billion Harmless Bony Humanoids
Riardi: Democracy, Poor Agricultural, TL 4, 2.6 Billion Human Colonials
Sosole: Multi-Government, Average Agricultural, TL 4, 2.1 Billion Fierce Lizards

Probably better using the icons, and it might be nice to add in the Galactic Catalogue entries, too.
