Re: Random Station Names OXP

I just made the trip to the nearby tech 15 system to buy myself an Asp and tool up with some of the (new to me) high tech weapons and defensive equipment. I cheated a bit by making a personal custom version of Gasgostinho's stunning Black Asp with a green stripe Asp model and tweaking it a bit to be...

Random Station Names OXP

Random Station Names OXP – LittleBear & Milo (Version 0.02 – 5th August 2020) This OXP is a pure flavour OXP which adds a unique name to each Main Station in the 8 Galaxies unless that station already has a unique name in a similar way to the way Random Ship Names give ships unique names. It has no ...

Re: Flavour OXP – Named Stations – Would need help with a Script.

Bit of a long post warning! Milo & phkb I've also sent this by PM as I've a favour to ask. Long story short. As I set up a new buisness 10 years ago I just had no time anymore for gaming and hadn't had Oolite installed since about 2009! Covid-19 hit us but we have been very lucky as its only reduced...

Re: Flavour OXP – Named Stations – Would need help with a Script.

Ok understand. We'd need a feature request to Another Commander and a new Oolite Version for this to work, which is a bit of an ask. I seem to remember that on 1.65 (14 years ago!) there was a legacy comand of get system random number which gave a random number which was always the same for that par...

Re: Flavour OXP – Named Stations – Would need help with a Script.

Thanks. Rats I was kinda hoping to be able to use the Pesdo Randomness to help, but I can see now why this only works for the planet descriptions. As I've been in hibernation for 10 years (OXP wise!) the last script I wrote was Random Hits (in legacy as that was the only option at the time). It was ...

Re: Flavour OXP – Named Stations – Would need help with a Script.

Opps. Definatley rusty. Have fixed the arrays and completed two lists of 32 each. I hit the problem of Oolite pedo-randomness when doing Random Hits as although in theroy there should have been millions of combinations as I was using about 50 rolls of the dice on each ad page, the sequence would rep...

Re: Flavour OXP – Named Stations – Would need help with a Script.

Thanks guys. Been having a bit of a think and I think the simplest way to do this is to by default to set the main station and any oxp stations on the whitelist to the name given in my generic station name random generator. So far I've just added one template in a 32 X 32 grid. So at them moment it ...

Flavour OXP – Named Stations – Would need help with a Script.

Hello Commanders, It must be 10 years since I did any OXPing, but after a long break I have been playing Oolite again with all the new stuff. I don’t have time to really to bring my scripting up to date, but an idea that has been floating around in my head for a few years is it would be a nice bit o...

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...
