Re: Science Fiction Trivia

And as if by magic I found a way to search for it - bit of a cheat, hope nobody objects. I searched on "Appeared in Star Trek and Star Wars" then checked the people who came up for Dr. Who. It's Simon Pegg Played "the editor" in the Dr. Who episode The Long Game (2005) Played Scotty in the Star Tre...

Re: Screenshots

Nice! Does this mean that blending is only available for visual effects? And that they are drawn after all of the other, usual, 'solid' entities?

I may have to start tinkering about!

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Well, I couldn't think of anything literary (clearly an indication that I need to read some more!), so for lack of something better, let's see if anyone can name an actor who has had a part in some form of each of Star Trek, Star Wars, and Doctor Who.

Re: Machine maintenance tips?

Well this is a most timely thread resurrection! I'm planning on installing a new harddrive into my desktop at some point this week, and am intending to clean out its insides at the same time. A toothbrush or paint brush make a lot of sense, and I would never have thought of them!

Re: (WIP) Home System

However, it's an interesting point for anyone running with an offender status most of the time. That would be a fun playthrough style - taking advantage of some of the less offensive illegalities, whilst being careful to not misbehave too much and being enough of a good citizen to avoid becoming a ...

Re: Two Questions

Working my way to a Latest Log with no error messages and a game that suits my play style despite 300+ Oxz(p)'s. ... Are we having fun - YES - there is a "not in game but benefits the game" challenge to it that is quite enjoyable. This is pretty much my default way of playing Oolite at the moment -...

Re: Scripters cove

Well, I'm starting simply in my task of selection and am just focusing on inserting the various complete shipsets and making sure that they all work nicely together. What I have noticed is that some of these have their own buoys defined. Is there an obvious way to ensure that the main buoys used in ...

Re: Where are Xeer Shipyards?

One idea which I have not fully considered yet, but here goes as brainstorming material. Maybe we could introduce the %GXXX operator in string expansion, which would set the galaxy number considered for any following planet string expansions in the same string. So, this would become something like ...

Re: Where are Xeer Shipyards?

The entirety of my test oxp was a single planetinfo.plist: { "0 150" = { name = "Mauiby's World"; }; } I was merrily drinking whisky last night and had the bizarre idea to write some Oolite haikus. And I couldn't remember what all of the core missions were, so I went looking around in the Resources ...

Where are Xeer Shipyards?

Commanders might recognise this as the shipyard known for constucting a certain ship. If one renames the planet Xeer through a theoretical OXP to, say Mauiby's World, and one begins a particular quest in Galaxy 1, then we are told that the ship has been taken from "our ship yard on Mauiby's World". ...

I seem to recall something in Asimov's Foundation series, which may have been a musical instrument - of sorts.
Just for completeness' sake, this could be the instrument that the Mule played, the Visi-Sonor.
