If all goes well you can download my OXP at the end of this week. This thread is for comments/questions or support.

Also added a poll just for the fun of it.

Cheers,

P.A. Groove :D

Uploaded the OXP to Griff so that he can put it on Box.net. It's quite big (17mb) Hope that Box.net don't charge for excessive bandwith due to donwloads. :?

anyway here's the readme. So that you can read before the oxp is uploaded:

Famous Planets OXP version 1.0
02-09-2008

By P.A. Groove and Capt Kev and Stromboli


What it does

Always wondered how Lave exactly looked? Did you read Status Quo and then found something missing in Oolite?
This is gonna change!

This OXP adds 10 unique planets to Galaxy 1. Some planets are true to the descriptions of the novel Status Quo by Drew Wagar (found and down loadable on the Oolite Bulletin Board, a must read) and the Rough Guide to the Ooniverse by Disembodied (see the Oolite Wiki section> Oolite Instruction Manual and then A background on the game).

The OXP can be installed as a standalone OXP or as an addum to Capt. Kev's Excellent System Redux.OXP ( IMPORTANT: special installation instructions below).

Credits go to>

- All Oolite forum members that set 'the scene'.

- Special thanks to Capt. Kev for helping me out and Disembodied for the great planet descriptions and of course to the great Ahruman who keeps the game going. Griff for the offered help, Stromboli for the texture of Lereace and to Lestradae for hosting the file on his Box.net account

Installation instructions



1. Standalone version

Just place the Famous Planex.OXP folder in your Oolite/Addons Directory.

2. With System Redux


copy the script.js file out of the folder System Redux Config of the Famous Planes.OXP to the Config directory of the System Redux.oxp and replace it.It contains extra code that Capt. Kev provided to let it work With his .OXP.

Teread HD
In this folder is a High Res version included of Teread. WARNING: Only for High-end systems. To install just copy the file to the texture directory and replace the file.

Tested with:

Lave.OXP
tgy_dev.OXP (Tionsla Orbital Graveyard)
taranis.OXP (Taranis HQ @ Lerelace)
tianve.OXP (Tianve pulsar)

If you have questions or remarks you can post them in the special thread: 'Released: Famous Planets.OXP' in the Oolite Expansion Pack Forums


Enjoy!

Box is limited to 10 Meg per download file, so I think you'd have to split it into FamousPlanetsA.oxp and FamousPlanetsB.oxp If your gonna go with a Y.A.H. type pack (which'd be cool) that might be a handy way to go anyway though.
OXPS : The Assassins Guild, Asteroid Storm, The Bank of the Black Monks, Random Hits, The Galactic Almanac, Renegade Pirates can be downloaded from the Elite Wiki here.

Hi Littlebear.

Didn't know that. Well let's see what Griff says. Because I send him a download link from my own server. But otherwise I see if I or he can repackage.

I'd be happy to host the file on my server if you like. No size restriction, no bandwidth restriction, no bloody popups...

I might even be able to provide stats...

Ok, nice. I see now these reactions. Thnx. I first asked it to Lestradae before I've read this messages. If he's unable I will then give you the private download and then one of you can download it and then host it.

Thanks in advance.

BTW.
I calculated The average filesize for 1 galaxy full of custom textured planets. That is 435 mb. A bit to big if you ask me. So texturing all planets is not an option.
