Re: [UPDATED RELEASE] - Escort Contracts OXP - 1.5.6 (07/05/

YYYY-MM-DD is unambiguous, sortable, and the only one I ever use anymore.

Re: hyperradio

Indeed, those skilled at programming can always tweak any OXP to their taste. My comments apply to this one as it's currently available to everyone else. It doesn't make sense that only the super-rich could afford to listen to music (and even they would find cheaper ways - an iPod, maybe, or a live ...

Re: [UPDATED RELEASE] - Escape Pod Locator v1.4.1 (05/06/12)

I can report the same "ghost beacons" problem for Oolite 1.77.1 for the Mac.

Re: hyperradio

I like this concept, but can't get around the idea of paying the equivalent of thousands of tons of food for what's really just a portable media player with a few dozen titles. And more than a ton of computers, or 3 kg of gold, for a 20-day satellite radio license. Just doesn't seem a viable busines...

Re: TAF in v1.77

I know that too, and am still willing to try an OXP that will only ever work in the Developer's Version, and decide for myself whether it's a game-breaker. Since I would only Fast Forward through the boring bits when "nothing seems to be happening", I'm not really worried about inaccuracies that I p...

Re: TAF in v1.77

Thanks for your comments. I do use Escort Contracts OXP, and so do see NPCs using Jump Drives - but only when they're with me. Again, _everyone_ else is "standing still". The Mass Lock was only a Minor Annoyance on top of the Major - that nobody else ever seems to deal with it. Especially: once I'm ...

Re: TAF in v1.77

I'd like to see this OXP, please. I’ve always been uncomfortable with the Torus Drive/Jump Drive in this game. Mainly: that only the Player ever seems to have one, or ever use it. Even from a great distance, you never see a lone NPC zipping along at multiples of his or her normal speed, or otherwise...

[RELEASE] Zeke Mining Transporter 1.0

Version 1.0 now available for download at https://www.box.com/s/0549d86cc62dd62ee007: removed max_version from requires.plist; changed version numbers throughout. Looks like it has a 'max_version' specified in the requires.plist. { version = "1.76"; max_version = "1.76"; } The 'max_version' is un-ne...

Re: [RELEASE] Zeke Mining Transporter 0.3.1

Maik, thanks, it does seem ready for that. In a few weeks, if the feedback's been good and no further features have been suggested, I'll bumb up to version 1.y.z, and remove max_version from the requires.plist. Meanwhile, if you like, you can shorten the description there still further to "a cheap p...

Re: [RELEASE] Zeke Mining Transporter 0.3.1

New version 0.3.1 now uploaded. Thanks to Micha for a script that spawns a Rock Hermit in systems without any; and to Smivs for creation and integration of new ship designs.

Wildeblood, tried both of those suggestions, and same error. Has it been working in any form on your system?

Re: [RELEASE] Zeke Mining Transporter 0.1.1

Wildebloode, no offense taken – I do appreciate that, in troubleshooting, all possibilities must be explored. And I know so little about this area that this (or anything else) could easily have slipped past me - but in fact, as I checked again just now, all was copied and pasted correctly. Sometimes...

Re: [RELEASE] Zeke Mining Transporter 0.1.1

snork, thanks for your suggestions about classification. Micha, thank you very much for the handy suggested script. It's very reasonable that advanced and industrialized Zaonce should have at least one Rock Hermit always in operation. However, I'm having problems getting this script to activate. Aft...

Re: Mac OS X versions

I might have been mistaken in an earlier remark: my Powerbook G4 can run OS X 10.5 Leopard after all – though definitely not 10.6 or 10.7, and not any of my OS9 programs (unless there's a Classic emulator somewhere for that). That's still no reason to change from 10.4, in which I can presently do ev...

Re: [RELEASE] Zeke Mining Transporter 0.1.1

For the Elite Wiki, some OXPs can fall under more than one Category (ex. as Feudal States is mentioned on pages for Ships, Missions and Systems), but its entry in the OXP List (http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/OXP_List) shows only one (ex. Feudal States has Systems). Besides Ships, are there any oth...
