<chortles> That was me, embellishing during testing of the OXP... a reason was needed for why no trade.

I'm happy to restore the "no trade" option and show the message. But we can also keep the F4 interface screen, so both will work.

A core-game issue, that one. Planets spawned in interstellar space are lit up like Christmas.
Ah... interesting. The lighting in IS has always been strangely directional, but it's only really noticeable when there's a planet or other large object. It depends on which direction (system) you approach from.

Yep, cool! I might be wrong, but I think you couldn't have a commodity market in IS back then. Crikey, that's ten years ago!

Do you know when that became an issue? Overlit and over nebulae'd.

... your "interstellar space" sounds more and more like "witchspace", what?
Comments wanted:
Missing OXPs? What do you think is missing?
Lore: The economics of ship building How many built for Aronar?
Lore: The Space Traders Flight Training Manual: Cowell & MgRath Do you agree with Redspear?

I believe it's always been an issue. I mean, from the core game's point of view, everything is fine. It's just us pesky players and story-tellers who want to do crazy things like spawning random planets in the middle of nowhere.

For the over nebulae'd issue, I'm not as sure. I think there might be an OXP in play, maybe Zygo's?

Time was, Lago wasn't overlit...

Perhaps it's me! Never mind!

You're right, Zygo's is the culprit. Time for some more OXP butchery!

Hmm... I'll have to see if I can track down where in the source code the lighting is set for interstellar objects.

Done! That's much better! You got an updated Coyote's Run OXZ handy?

Almost. Just trying to track down a rather annoying OXP interaction.

One last question: I'm finalising some other station settings, and realised I hadn't given Avernus a specific allegiance. Of the standard types (see this wiki entry), which do you think is the most appropriate for the station? I'm leaning towards "chaotic", but perhaps "neutral" would make more sense. Let me know what you think.

Version 2.1 is available via the link in the first post.

Oh, ok, here's the link again because I'm a nice guy and want to save everyone a click or two: Coyote's Run.oxz

This should restore the restaurant menu when going to the F8 screen, and I also tweaked the textures a little bit.

In this version I've set the allegance to "chaotic", but it can be easily changed again.

Thankee, Admiral - I'll take a look when I've had my morning coffee. And "chaotic" fits perfectly!

The menu in L'Auberge de Lago displays nicely now - thanks! However...

Code: Select all

10:09:02.742 [script.javaScript.exception.unexpectedType]: ***** JavaScript exception (Coyote-Main 2.1): TypeError: station is null
10:09:02.742 [script.javaScript.exception.unexpectedType]:       ../AddOns/Coyote's Run.oxz/Scripts/Coyote-Main.js, line 57.

OK, version 2.2 should fix that issue. Available in links above.
