Isaac Asimov, The End of Eternity - it's about time travellers who repeatedly change history and keep on ending up eliminating space travel as an unintentional side effect of the changes they make.

Re: Oolite in a Docker container

I'm not too versed into (docker) containers, but from what I gathered they seem to be what I'd call "vandalized" virtual machines (i.e. stripped to a -- very -- bare minimum emulation wise, as compared with, say, qemu, virtualbox, vmware & co). I'm not even sure they are supposed to execute a vanill...

Re: PS3 Controller's D-Pad registers as Button 1

Welcome to the forum, commander! I am not sure if the controller you mention is the same I'm thinking of (the one with the glowing sphere at one end, released for PS3), but I never tried to connect one of these to the PC. It might be worthwhile to also test the joystick for the SDL library (which is...

Re: Parser anomaly - bug or encoding glitch?

Quick hint about EOL (CR/CR+LF/LF) on Windows: if you wanted to check if you're haunted by this, try Windows' Notepad -- it will usually show a mess (a single line out of you whole file) for non CR+LF formatted text files. Then open it with Windows' Wordpad, rejoice on the nice formatting, don't min...

Re: BPlanets

I don't think it's "compatible". From what I remember System Redux was used to populate/texture extra planets/moons, and thus it shouldn't interfere. For Habitable Planets, although not sure (i.e. didn't test), it might just replace the first set of planets that are textured (some hundred or so in G...

Re: Things I Wish I Knew BEFORE Starting this *@*#~&ing .oxp

I'm no expert, but from the looks of them, I'd say that considering each coord set a position of values "x y z" relative to the ship's center/origin (hint: 0 on the first position for aft and forward implies centered on the x -- that is left/right -- axis), what you'd need would be to increase the z...

Re: Things I Wish I Knew BEFORE Starting this *@*#~&ing .oxp

I'd guess a quick answer would be that if you change the last set of them (view_position_[aft|forward|port|starboard]), you'd change the camera position for the views you get when hitting 1/2/3/4 or F1/F2/F3/F4 keys (that is the cameras along the weapon positions). The first set would change the cam...

Re: [RELEASE] Povray Planets 1.0

Definitely, any attempt to convert an image by changing its UV mapping, is very prone to create seams.
Even "only" rescaling images used as textures, will also very likely bring in seams.

Does gnustep 1.26 also need gdnc?
I don't know if it needs it or not -- I can just confirm it has it:

Code: Select all

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=Linux-deps ldd oolite | grep gnustep
	libgnustep-base.so.1.26 => /usr/local/lib/libgnustep-base.so.1.26

Code: Select all

which gdnc
/usr/local/bin/gdnc
