Re: Random Hits OXP

Following a total computer crash I lost all my Oolite Commanders and so I recently started a new Jameson on 1.82. The NPCs are better, but I've been quietly bouncing between a Tech 14 Corprate State and a low tech Feudal doing the furs / computer run, but taking out a bandit or two along the way. So...

Re: Random Hits OXP

You have to have at least 32 kills (Average) to take even the easiest missions. I'd put the kill count requirement in to try to stop the OXP being a game breaker. You can't earn money from random hits until you've seen a reasonable amount of combat and presumabley traded to equip your ship to surviv...

Re: Random Hits OXP

I think Ramen's question was more what the GalCop hand in option was all about. It is meant as a feature. The Contract you took was to kill the mark. If you laser him in space, either by destroying his ship whilst he's on it or blowing his pod to bits you have killed the mark and completed the contr...

Re: To Those I know Or Not

Likewise, sorry I didn't see your thread sooner as I've been dropping in and out over the last four years or so. That said when I drop by, I do an OXP dowload update and your OXPs have given me much pleasure when I have a blast on Oolite. Sorry to see you've been on Energy Low, but I'm hoping your d...

He who prefers security over liberty deserves neither

Having docked my Cobra Mk III at Lave at 12.00 yesterday I was forced to return to the real world and started my duty solicitor shift. I docked with my OIC in his VIPER at Westminster Magistrates. At the witchspace beacon were a sqaud of Ministery of Justice drones, charged with maintaining the Secu...

Re: NEW : Bank of the Black Monks OXP

It's an odd rule of my profession that if you want to practice then you have to work 4 days a month as a pro bono Duty Solicitor to represent anyone who is unrepresented at a court assigned by the LAA and facing custody. Most Duty Solicitor slots that you are assigned are general criminal and so the...

Re: NEW : Bank of the Black Monks OXP

I coded the interest rate in this OXP as a reference to the Blackadder II episode “Money” and as satire of the lending situation at the time. 6 years later it seems to be true in the UK. In real life in Dec 2013 the UK Pay Day Loan companies such as Wonga charge the desperate 3000% APR entirely lawf...

Re: Remove Messages in HUD

Clear Hud might be just what you're looking for. Very nice Hud generally and it moves all the messages and Comms to boxes on the Hud. Messages are persistent so you can read the last 5 or so. And as all messages appear in the Comms Box they don't get in the way of the action! Some Screen Shots of it...

Re: [WIP] RandomHits 1.5.1 (was facelift)

So there will be a close to the original experience with upgraded graphics. This means that I'll drop Chopped Cobra and Cobra Mark IV now that we have reduxed versions of Phaze and SuperCobra. For those who want extra challenge there will be a option to enable Skilled NPCs and another option to ena...

Re: Adaptive AI?

As I remember, when the mission is running the OXP just adds two special Security Kraits at the witchpoint. Unlike all the other police ships in the system these two will attack you regardless of your current legal status (they know what you intend!). They are 'posioned pawns' as whist easy to kill,...

Re: [WIP] RandomHits facelift 0.1

Small Bug Report: The Mosquito Trader is being picked as a Level 2 Victim (but appears with no ship in the background). Not had time to poke around the code, but suspect it is still on the Ships List without a model. When picked the OXP runs ok and the hit is generated, but with no model in the back...

Re: [WIP] RandomHits facelift 0.1

Wow, that's a great update. Makes all the changes I'd wanted to do if I still had the time for OXPing. I'm currently engaging the Real Life Thargoid Chris Grayling (http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/48628) as well as my day job ([Shameless Plug] Please sign the petition [/Shameless Plug]). W...
