Re: A question of lore

Buoys - we are all aware of THIS . Back in G2 there was a rash of Buoy destruction going on. All types of Buoys were being taken out on a regular basis. The above OXZ replaced the destroyed Buoys in a very short amount of time. It even provided temporary positioning of a destroyed Buoy, and a tempor...

Re: Thargpoid's Target Autolock Plus - packaging error?

19:17:43.379 [oxz.manager.error]: Downloaded OXZ does not contain a manifest.plist, has been left in ... Based on the above my guess was that the OXZ had been downloaded but placed somewhere other than the ManagedAddOns folder due to not having a proper manifest.plist. The WIki was back up (now dow...

Re: What are these MFD's?

The HUD Selector page on the wiki shows some MFD's I've not yet come across. Can anyone tell me what they are? *ExtraLarge HUD 4x3: Left-hand side, 3rd down --------------------- Not 100% sure about this one but it looks like something to do with Carriers or Escort Deck. Right-hand side, 2nd down -...

Re: Thargpoid's Target Autolock Plus - packaging error?

Nite Owl, you must have a lot of experience in these things to be able to spot these unintended insults in your posts. Been posting on Bulletin Boards for as long as there has been an Internet. Started with a dial-up connection at about 2k a second. What now takes seconds to download would, back th...

Re: Thargpoid's Target Autolock Plus - packaging error?

Remember reading that thread but did not realize until now what its results may have been. Again, such is the way of the interwebs. Interpersonal communication via only typed words can be a very tricky thing indeed. Without the tonal inflection of your voice and the facial and body expressions that ...

Re: Thargpoid's Target Autolock Plus - packaging error?

dybal has taken over the maintenance of this OXZ. He is currently on hiatus from the boards but will hopefully return. I wouldn't count on that, he didn't reply to any message (including Christmas & New Year wishes) for a month now. My personal guess would be that only a_c could convince him to com...

Re: Thargpoid's Target Autolock Plus - packaging error?

dybal has taken over the maintenance of this OXZ. He is currently on hiatus from the boards but will hopefully return. If memory serves there was an update that had a manifest.plist problem but it was corrected. The correction most likely occurred after the current backup wiki month of September so ...

Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter / Barsoom series. Some Martians are hostile, some are not, a lot like Earth, which was probably Burroughs whole point.

Re: Elite Wiki server down

Is not maik the current Wiki Wizard? According to his forum profile he was online a bit earlier today. So, hopefully, the outage should not last too much longer. That is, of course, dependent on its severity and how much free time maik has to dedicate to its repair.

Re: Scarce information pending contracts?

Pencil and paper are always a good idea but you can also F5-F5 (F5 twice) to bring up your ship's manifest which should contain more information on your contracts. Have a look around in the folder in which Oolite got installed. In there should be a PDF with a name similar to "Oolite Reference Sheet"...

Re: Cargo Spotter question

Code: Select all

requires_equipment = ( "EQ_SCANNER_SHOW_MISSILE_TARGET" );
The Cargo Spotter requires the SCANNER TARGETING ENHANCEMENT to be installed on your ship prior to itself being installed.
