Re: Source Code and Ideas question

Thanks, changing the detail settings works for me too. I must say, having done this, I really like 1.79. SOme cool new gameplay features like pirates asking for 2 barrels and the AI is much improved. Think I will stick with 1.79 after all. Thanks for all your help in getting me past the first hurdle.

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

Thanks, appreciate your patience! e I tried to checkout 1.77.1 at the end of the process after changing the description plist but got an error: your local changes to the following files would be overwritten: (description.plist) Please commit your changes or stash them before you can switch branches ...

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

Apologies, it wasn't my intention to miss steps or not follow instructions precisely...the reason I didn't want the 1.79 build is because planets were missing textures, so I assumed 1.79 being the bleeding edge, was bound to have a few bugs. I wanted a stable release but having so little knowledge o...

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

I've tried both ways... Method 1 Download the raw tar 1.77.1 Then run the make debug=no Which failed as per my previous post So I then tried git submodule update --init (which also failed) Method 2 Tried the original instructions (have skipped the bits about changing/making directories but trust me ...

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

Many thanks Pleb for your analysis...I'm afraid its too complex for me at this stage to use but I am keen to learn and grow because Oolite has so much potential. I still cant make an executable out of v1.77.1! I've downloaded the source code (as all attempts to use the git checkout 1.77.1 failed) an...

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

1.77.1 is a tagged revision, i.e. the exact revision of the code that was used for the release of version 1.77.1. You are not meant to do a git pull and submodule update if you are working on it. The instructions in the Oolite-PC subforum are for updating the master branch (trunk) code and do not n...

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

Thanks guys for your input...it seems though that I still have v1.79 installed despite calling in 1.77.1, through git checkout 1.77.1. When I later update the code after making changes to a few .m files, I followed the stage 4 instructions by another_commander git pull git submodule update make debu...

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

Many thanks...on another note, I've run out of ideas for renaming the elite classes and legal standings - some of these are pretty lame. Can anyone help generate new ideas. So far I have... "Unknown", "Rookie", "Greenhorn", "Trainee Cadet", "Cadet", "Experienced Cadet", "Captain", "Trainee Commander...

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

Well the good news is I've successfully managed to change the number and names of elite rankings from 9 to 15. The bad news is the initial git download was version 1.79 which has some instability issues. what I really want is the last stable release which is 1.77.1. I thought it would be a case of d...

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

You do not need a github account to download the source, unless you are one of the developers with commit rights. Many people without github accounts have built from source already, so we know that the instructions do work. hangar18, what is the actual message you are getting? Have you followed the...

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

Sorry...another silly question -- how do I put either the master 1.79 or Maintenance 1.77.1 into my repository. I've tried searching in the pull request tab both in the Explore and Find a repository but it either returns nothing or 10000s of records.

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

THanks, presumably the source code that gets pulled from there is the latest ie 1.77.1?

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

Thanks guys but after step 2
