Re: RELEASED TODAY: Famous Planets OXP

Post by LittleBear »

I think it is more that PA Grove decided to re-write his Famous Planets descriptions to fit the textures added by Povey Planets for V2. I'm playing with all 8 Povey Planets packs installed and the current Famous Planets. It's a nice touch from PA Grove as if (for example) his text refers to toxic yellow mists, great forests, frozen worlds (as the case may be) the Povey Planet does actually have yellow clouds, big patches of vegitation or is made of ice (as the case may be). Both OXPs can stand alone. But if you play with both the you get the bonus feature that the planets do actually look as they are described.

As he had then changed his descriptions to match Povey Planets, he didn't want to over-write the Povey Planets textures so took his orginal yextures out for V2. Liners is a seperate OXP and I don't have it installed at the moment. But my recolection is that it's script adds the Liners to the Famous Planets routes. If you play with all three OXPs in, then you get all effects, but each can be installed independantly, so if you like Famous Planets but prefer an alternate texture set to Povey Planets you can still play with Famous Planets and Liners installed without having to change your texture pack for planets. I think that is why he went this way as his first version was not compatable with other OXPs that also changed planet textures.
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.

Famous Planets OXP

Post by Cholmondely »

Four new descriptions to add in to Famous Planets:

0 7 Lave
The Oldest human settlement in the 8 galaxies: the capital Ashoria reeks of history - see the old spacer lodgings in the Abbey district. The parliament is still in the original colony ship, the tyrant ruling from the bridge on behalf of the Empress. Port Arcadia is famously cosmopolitan, full of students & visitors. The renowned Tree grub is being brought back from near-extinction in the vast rain forests of Lave.

0 46 Riedquat
Famous for the food, don’t forget to get your gut flora switched at the orbital before landing. Everything tastes exquisite! Avoid violent black feather wearers, and do not forget that normal money is seen as offensive - barter with gems, pebbles and small nick-knacks.

0 211 Teorge
Peopled by both lobsters and humanoid clones. Isolated for centuries, the “clone world” is home to the bio-maniacal Shulth dynasty, rumoured to have created genetic space-ships. Prized exports include plutonium vases and beer.

0 246 Tianve
Tianve is most noted for its famous pulsar, the top tourist attraction in the region. Visiting by official liner is recommended, but rental vessels are available too. Zero-Gee Cricket is banned on Tianve at the request of the native feline population. Tianve is home to the Elite combateer 'Rebecca Weston' (details can be found in the Tionisla Chronicle publications - 'Status Quo' and 'Mutabilis').

Feedback welcomed!

Corrections and additions

Here is the new planetinfo.plist (from the Config folder) for the Famous Planets oxp

A dozen typos corrected.
0 7 Lave, 0 46 Riedquat, 0 96 Digebiti, 0 151 Ceesxe, 0 154 Isinor, 0 170 Tibecea, 0 211 Teorge, 0 246 Tianve added in
(from Rough Guide/Classic Elite Lore/Oolite Saga)

Would it make sense for somebody with access to the Website to add it in to the old oxz?
Or should it just be left here for people to use as they wish?

Code: Select all

   "0 0" ={description = "This planet is most notable for Tibediedian Arma brandy. This brandy sometimes contains a larva which is deadly to some species. The planet is mostly covered in dense jungle and is a magnet for nature lovers. The attraction is strengthened by it being the only green planet in the sector. Around the poles, there are flat areas with cities. The Royal House of Tibedied welcomes travellers and traders who make planetfall after visiting the tournaments at the Royal Hunting Lodge in orbit.";};
   "0 1" ={description = "Qube is reasonably well known for its great dense forests and deep blue oceans. It is dotted with islands and inland seas. The temperate climate provides the inhabitants with an abundance of food. Sadly the planet is scourged by a long lasting civil war between the large food corporations and the farmers who are robbed of their land for quick profit. Visitors are advised to check the tourist bulletins to see if there is any conflict around the landing spot.";};
   "0 2" ={description = "The world Leleer is very noted for its pink Leleerian Er plant plantations but beset by frequent civil war. Unless you are a biologist it is best to stay away from the surface. Many travellers don't make the trip back to the station. Also there are many known cases where traders have been kidnapped, and only released after their families paid a large ransom. This is mostly done to put pressure on the Dictators of Leleer.";};
   "0 3" ={description = "This world is very fabled for the Biargeian Edible Poet. The predominant race on Biarge are human colonials, who arrived in the early days of the 'Far Colonies', even before wormhole technology was discovered. The infamous colonial group, the Dead Poets' Society, were responsible for the genocidal consumption of the Biargeian Edible Poets, but this practice was eventually stamped out. Later, however, Biarge became known for the 'Biargeian Edible Poet to Soylent Green' conversion scandal, a food conflict that almost caused a civil war.";};
   "0 4" ={description = "The world Xequerin is fabled for its weird volcanoes and the Xequerinian mountain lobstoid. The best-known volcano is Mount Lexuqberen, named after the Coomonin lobstoid poet Lexuq. His poem about Mount Lexuqberen is widely known. Lexuq later died on Dienon in galaxy 4, a planet much like his birthplace, also notable for its great volcanoes and its inhabitants' eccentric love for poetry. It is rumoured that his death gave birth to the Coomunin.";};
   "0 5" ={description = "The leadership of Tiraor have committed themselves to demonstrating the superiority of Communism through sporting prowess and millions of citizens train each day under the watchful eyes of the Peoples Coaches.";};
   "0 6" ={description = "The Rabediran loathing of sit coms dates back to the systems founding, when it was settled by refugees from Laeden. Unfortunately, shortly after landing, the refugees split into two over whether romantic or slapstick comedies should be viewed instead. The dreadful civil war continues today between the two governments, and visitors to the planet are advised to remain in the safer polar regions away from the militarised border.";};

   "0 8" ={description = "Zaatxe is a rich corporate state in the Pulsar Worlds with an abundance of red sand. Zaatxerian sand is a so-called ultraconductor and is used in computers. There are countless plants that convert the Zaatxerian sand into computer related products. Spacers seldom touch down on the surface due to the extreme sandstorms and the very dangerous fauna. The Zaatxeian deadly Ouenbeoid is a 30 metre long sandworm and the lethal spotted craboids, of which there are plenty, are known for their fast and often deadly attacks.";};
   "0 9" ={description = "This planet is mildly fabled for its inhabitants' eccentric love for tourists. The truth is that there is not a single good reason for a tourist to set foot on this planet. The feudal society is primitive and the simple industrial cities are filthy. The famous edible moth is very dangerous when driven into a corner but is almost everywhere. The insect is hunted by the Diusrezans for pest control and for food. Tasting a Mothburger is almost a mandatory evil at every party. The taste is reported as awful.";};
   "0 10" ={description = "Teaatis is mildly well known for Teaatisian vicious brew. The thick gaslike cloud cover of the planet produces droplets which are rich in acid, which are captured by large screens under the cloudfactories. The concentrated acid is mixed in the Teaatisian vicious brew and sold on the juice market for consumption by some insect and frog species. Humans are advised to drink something else.";};
   "0 11" ={description = "This planet is noted for its great canyons and the friendly desert grub.";};
   "0 12" ={description = "Esbiza is famous for its legendary party-scene. Being a multi-government world there are many cultural versions and styles. Clubs like Spacelight, Bananozia and Qwerty are famous for their 32/9 partyscene.";};
   "0 13" ={description = "This planet is reasonably famous for its inhabitants' exceptional love for food blenders. If you have a blender to sell, sell it here. High performance models are in high demand, especially Ice Blenders. The surface of Ontimaxe is covered in ice but the people are warm and fun.";};
   "0 14" ={description = "This world is most notable for its fabulous Cebetelaian lethal brandy but scourged by killer mountain Esbionoids. The old register is right on this one. If you have no reason to be here, then stay away.";};
   "0 15" ={description = "The Fierce Lizards of Ceedra have been engaged in what appears to outsiders as a deadly civil war for many years. In fact, due to their extreme regenerative abilities, native fatalities are rare, and the conflict is seen as a combination of sport and religious ritual. Visitors who do not share the Ceedran's resilience are advised to wear full combat armour at all times.";};
   "0 16" ={description = "The planet Rizala is mildly notable for Rizalaian Lethal Brandy, the ideal remedy for people who spend a little bit too much time in the harsh outdoor conditions. Rizala is a young planet that looks more like a cratered moon with a large river network. The atmosphere has a very low oxygen content which makes it difficult to breathe. The planet has oceans at its poles, and the sights are splendid as the planet's surface bathes in mystical blue and purple light.";};
   "0 17" ={description = "Atriso is a fertile farming world, its green fields clearly visible from space, but even the wide variety of foods it produces cannot satisfy their gourmet tastebuds. The ruling chef-dictators of Atriso import hundreds of tons of exotic foods each day from across the eight charts, hoping to find the perfect combination of flavours.";};
   "0 18" ={description = "Travellers in a hurry often pass this planet by, missing out on Teanrebi's friendly bug-eyed frogs, its beautiful tropical beaches and lush forests. Rumour has it that some old settlements found here are of an ancient, unknown alien origin.";};
   "0 19" ={description = "The pink oceans of Azaqu are covered in a thin layer of floating silt which gives them their distinctive colour. Beneath the waves, the lobstoid population grow corals for their cousins elsewhere. The planetary sport is Zero-G cricket, and the Az-es trophy is contested annually with nearby Leesti.";};
   "0 20" ={description = "Retila's harsh rocky surface was unpleasant at best, but its sun's activity made it worse. A particularly nasty solar flare destroyed most of the orbitals soon after colonisation, and drove the population deep underground to survive. They are now unable to patrol their space lanes, but are welcoming to the determined visitor who makes it to the surface.";};
   "0 21" ={description = "The planet Sotiqu is known for its exclusive clothing made by the best tailors of all the eight charts. Sadly the planet is an anarchy, and exporting these exquisite fabrics is sometimes very dangerous.";};
   "0 23" ={description = "The planet Onrira is famous for its Torus station. When the first Torus station was unveiled in orbit around Onrira in 3129, it was an event full of political promise. Both GASEC and GalCop had relied heavily on the services of Obnoxicorp in both the political lobbying and execution of the project. At the time Onrira was an unstable multi-government system, but the Torus station helped unify the planet's inhabitants. It was a technological marvel at the time and Onrira became the first tech 14 planet in galaxy 1.";};
   "0 28" ={description = "Arexe is famous for its green oceans and millions of islands. The islands are covered with forests and swamps. The climate on Arexe is a force to be reckoned with as the steamy seas feed gigantic weather systems. The geography of Arexe fluctuates constantly as coastlines are eroded and new island chains silt up. The rodent population of Arexe build their cities on poles or even aboard large ships. The largest spaceport, Rexona, floats on 25 million air cushions and can travel unhindered across the vast river networks of the planet.";};
   "0 29" ={description = "The planet Atrabiin is covered with a vast network of islands. The atmosphere is very moist and dense and it is only barely habitable for its population of human colonials. The yellowish oceans are particularly interesting. The yellow colour comes from geothermal activity, and the water has a proven healing power for some races. The many cultural differences between the island communities makes this an interesting planet to visit.";};
   "0 35" ={description = "Everyone knows the saying: 'red as the Hells of Isence'. Everything is red on Isence, including the inhabitants: the virulent Isencian V bacteria turned these humanoids red and fat. After years of total planetary quarantine, an expensive medicine was recently developed to control the infection, finally allowing the famous Chexsin Cherzin to take part in the Four-Way Pellery championships on Isinor.";};
   "0 36" ={description = "Reesdice has a long tradition of industry, and paid the price with a heavily polluted atmosphere. Their scientists used this bitter fact to develop the famous Reesdician air filter. This unique device can clean the air of any waste product. Due to miniaturization, Reesdician air filters are widely used in modern space suits. Rumours are that ReesAir(tm) provides patented technology for the Q-Worlds terraforming company. Despite this technical achievement, to avoid further pollution Reesdice switched to producing advanced agricultural products.";};
   "0 39" ={description = "Because of deadly earthquakes the people of Reorte are forever at the mercy of titanic hidden forces hidden deep within their planet. As a result they are deeply religious. Although listed as a Dictatorship the planet is actually a theocracy, controlled by a fluctuating priesthood.";};
   "0 42" ={description = "Anarlaqu is moderately known for the unique xeno-coral plantations in the southern hemisphere's ocean. These unusual corals are occasionally exported for the exotic pet industry and as an avant garde food item for some lobsteroid races. The plantations can be seen as one approaches the planet from space. This system also hosts the Tri-Annual Tournament of Nobles, which is sponsored by the lesser House of Eigrpan.";};

Furthermore, conflict between the green frogs of Aesbion has been raging for thousands of years now and the fact that the planet is a Corporate State doesn't make it any better: corporate wars are notoriously savage. Luckily for the visitor this war is confined to the surface, for the time being.";};
   "0 62" ={description = "Esusti is a very warm and dry planet. The world is famed for the giant Esusti cactus which can grow as high as 100 metres.

The Famous Planets Music Pack (2009) was removed by PAGroove.

It has the following ReadMe
Famous Planets musicpack v1.0.

Music composed by: P.A. Groove (
Coding/Testing and Compiling: Thargoid, Svengali

Copyright notice:
This music is licenced by P.A. Groove to the Oolite community. Therefore it is not allowed to reproduce, remix, resample, rework, use bits this music, or to convert to other formats without permission from the author. It is not allowed to make use of this work in any commercial form or production or to place it at your website without permission of the author.

The idea came a bit from playing other space games like Freelancer and the X-series where music often set the scene for a system. I wanted to enhance the Famous Planets with music. I therefore composed special music for every of the 10 famous planets.

Make sure you downloaded all parts. Place the .oxp directory in your Oolite- Add on folder.
There was a general Oolite track and then tracks for the first 10 famous planets - Diso, Isinor, Lave, Leesti, Lerelace, Reorte, Teraed, Tianve, Tionisla & Zaonce.

He wrote in Feb 2013 that he had removed it because he wished to work on it:
I want to make some new music and/or make a hyperradio station pack for the Hyperradio OXP by Svengali.

Is there any reason not to make it available again?

It would need some programming - I only have the music, not the coding to play it.

Might this work?

Code: Select all

this.musicList = [
    ]; = true; // Music

this.shipWillEnterWitchspace = this.shipWillDockWithStation = this.shipDied = function()
	if( && this.musicList[galaxyNumber].indexOf(system.ID)!==-1) Sound.stopMusic( + '_Theme.ogg');

this.shipExitedWitchspace = this.shipLaunchedFromStation = function(station)
	if( && this.musicList[galaxyNumber].indexOf(system.ID)!==-1 && (!station || station.isMainStation)) Sound.playMusic( + '_Theme.ogg');

So bung the planetary locations into Famous Planets and bung the Bastan palace into Lave 2.0 ?
I'm busily adding all the locations into the individual OXP's as we speak, mainly because I have control over those ones at the moment. FPO isn't something I'm looking to get involved in at the moment, but I can compile all the changes I'm making into a script that could be included in FPO so it hands control to the system OXP's nicely.
FPO is Stranger's Roolite "Overhaul" of PAGroove's FP, is massive (5 oxp's at 100Mb each) and is not on our Expansions Manager (other than his Lave & Zaonce textures). And I have no idea as to how to get it on there. Or if Stranger would be happy with that.

I was thinking of PAGroove's denuded FP version which has only F7 screen descriptions and is on the Expansions Manager.

More to the point, I saw something somewhere where PAGroove explained that with Murgh's Lave OXP with its own F7 description - that he was taking it out of his Famous Planets (perhaps before he took all his music/planetary textures out...).

What should we do?

(F7 description, music & texture removed from FP)

I can add in Lave to FP, but it seems a bit pointless with all the stuff in Lave OXP.

Surely it makes more sense for both the F7 description and the Planet Landing sites to stay in your updated OXP rather than extract them and add them in here?

Since FP originally included Lave, and Lave would appear on anybody's list of G1 Famous Planets, we can add in your Lave OXP as a "requirement" in the FP manifest.plist

Tianve & Lerelace (Taranis):
(both F7 descriptions in FP, but Tianve's music & texture removed)

We can always add your Tianve/Taranis OXP updates as "requirements" in the FP manifest.plist... Then the planetary landing sites can stay in your OXPs

Riredi (Coluber Sodalite):
(no F7 description in FP)

This was never part of Famous Planets and so can just remain an optional "not quite so famous planet"... ! And the details can remain in your OXP.

Other than the extraneous "{" at the start, I think it would.

The only issue I see is how it integrates with something like Contextual Jukebox, which is using Library Music. I have a feeling you might end up with two tracks playing at the same time.

Here's something I prepared earlier:

Code: Select all

"use strict"; = "FamousPlanetsMusic"; = "phkb";

I think this will integrate nicely with Library Music, but prioritise playing the theme music for the system over other music (like Contextual Jukebox). I haven't fully tested this - I know it plays the track on launching and exiting witchspace, but I'm not sure what happens when the track ends. I'm hoping it automatically goes back to playing whatever other music has been set up. There's probably a bunch of other scenarios to test, but it should at least work for testing purposes.
