Re: [WIP/1.79-only] Communications Pack A

Post by Rustem »

It is not fixed:

Code: Select all

20:40:27.543 [script.javaScript.warning.ooliteDefined]: ----- JavaScript warning (Oolite Pirate AI 1.80): Unknown expansion key [commsPackA_rebel_continuingAttackThargoid] in string.
...
20:40:27.543 [script.javaScript.stackTrace]:     template: "[commsPackA_rebel_continuingAttackThargoid]"
...
[commsPackA_rebel_continuingAttackThargoid] in string.
I got a small patch for this error. In a "descriptions.plist" file paste the following:

Code: Select all

{
        "commsPackA_generic_continuingAttackThargoid" = ("Focus on the mothership!","Try not to get distracted by the drones. We can pick them up later.","Where is [commsPackA_rebelstate] navy force?","Invasion is broken in my [commsPackA_rebelgroup2] system!","Where is [commsPackA_rebelgroup] pilots? Please assist!","I'm armed for this [commsPackA_codename_greek] wave [oolite_entityClass]!","[commsPackA_vicious_beginningAttackThargoid]");
} 
It is right text?

Perhaps, a simple version:

Code: Select all

{
	"commsPackA_generic_continuingAttackThargoid" = ("[commsPackA_vicious_beginningAttackThargoid]");
}
That should eliminate the log file errors.

The part of the comms displace from commsPackA_generic_continuingAttackThargoid to _rebel_continuingAttackThargoid better because rebelgroup is not generic?
Then need edited template commsPackA_rebel_continuingAttackThargoid.

see line 358 in descriptions.plist, you're missing a '2'. It should read

The thing that gets me about this one is that all of the guys who offer you a free ride to another system via wormhole always tell the truth about where they're going - you'd think occasionally you'd find they were leading you to a pirate ambush or something.
There was a short discussion about this a while back, as I recall - there were good reasons against it, I think. Something I'd like to see though, certainly.

As for the rest, Comms Pack B is there for the making - but it ain't as easy as it may seem to create all those messages.
I've been meaning to attempt it myself, but I know from experience how hard it can be to create enough variety.
If this is still on the table, I'd love to try and help!

What I wanted to do was produce a XXX version - real spacer talk, definitely NSFW.
But my frazzled old brain couldn't really get into it, and I didn't get very far.

Take a look at its innards - perhaps you'll get pulled in, and produce your first OXP?
I would advise stilts for the quagmires, and camels for the snowy hills
And any survivors, their debts I will certainly pay. There's always a way!

Gentlemen, gentlemen ...

I'm still trying to get my confounded computer to recognise the existence of the two new Ship's Library books (Carver's Anarchy- Ganelon & Ships That Pass In The Night - Malacandra) which I've cobbled together.

Simple cut-and-paste jobs, I would have thought!

If you need help for an OXP/OXZ just let me know, I don't mind investing some hours to assist, however, you are in charge of the messages. :wink:

Thank you, gentlemen!

I'll faff about a bit more on my tod before I give up and holler for help. Especially with the new version running the debug console (thanks to Spara), I've still a couple of places to look and tweak!

Meanwhile trying to make some sort of sense of Cim's Altmap. Failed to work out how to make any dosh. Failed to reach feudal utopia (Alas, for Digebiti!). Failed to fight off the unspeakables. But maybe I can manage a little exploration and find out a little more about the markets!

I think it is a lot more fun not to just live inside the matrix but to also bend it or define whole new areas.
So the dark side is very tempting.

Maybe time for Cholmondely to meet the Oracle to find out about his destiny. :)

Hmmm, what is the status of this expansion?

Looks to me like it was well created and needs little maintenance. A real good item to have on our expansion manager.
Did anyone notice it has gone away silently?

My investigation shows it is still part of our expansion urls file at
https://github.com/OoliteProject/oolite ... s.txt#L695

But as soon as these URLs get processed, the download for the expansion times out, and OoliteAddonScanner simply skips it when creating the new catalogue. Here is an excerpt of the logfile. And it seems the same problem applies to more of cim's expansions.

So the problem is not with the expansions themselves, it is with either the hosting site or the connectivity between Github and that hosting site.

And.

there is still a problem with the indexing on the https://www.oolite.space/#oxp page.

When I tried it this morning, none of Phkb's updates appeared, and stuff just seemed to be listed higgledy-piggledy within the categories. It used to be in alphabetic order.

I can't reproduce this, even on my Hackintosh VM. Could you try clearing the browser cache?
