[Solved] OXP installation through manager fails with download version 1.84 -

Hello there, I've downloaded both, version 1.82 and 1.84 Linux version (x86_64) and wanted to install the Ambience Collection through the Expansion Pack Manager. However, no matter the version I use, the download of the expansions fails with the following error being logged to .Oolite/Logs/Latest.lo...

Re: Fuel Scooping

In the interests of fostering discussion and experimentation, I give you FuelTweaks.zip . This OXP does a couple of things: (1) Fuel is no longer available at the main station, but via fly-thru refueling stations located 20km away from the main station. Some systems won't have these facilities, and...

Re: Introduce Yourself.

It's the latest one that the Mint 18.1 apt repositories provide Hi CmdrGumbo, welcome, I know mint users are encouraged to stick to repository versions, but I have been running the current version of oolite on mint 17.3 with no problems. Installation is pretty straightforward and oolite comes compi...

back again!

I haven't played Oolite since late 2011 (boy, almost six years) and at that time I ran version 1.74 with quite some OXPs installed. But yesterday I felt like starting all over again, so I installed the recent 1.82 version on my Linux desktop and was quite impressed with all the new features. Decided...

Re: Ionics.oxp

The Link Base looks like a rock hermit and it will be away from the planet past the witchpoint beacon. It should appear on the advanced space compass, at least it did for me. Ah, just found out that I had to use a custom keyconfig.plist, as I have a german keyboard layout. Now I can easily select w...

Re: Ionics.oxp

Hi. I wonder if someone can help me out, probably only a minor problem. I got started with Ionics, got the Funnelweb attack mission and killed it, got back to the station and docked, got 15 grand. All good stuff but the mission destination on Rimaza stayed there. I then went off to the Link place (...

Re: THE DEATH OF OOLITE > ELITE DANGEROUS

Well, from what I've learned so far E:D is going to be a totally different game than all previous "Elite" titles. It's probably more close to X2, X3 and Vendetta Online or Eve Online than to the original Elite game. So how does one come to think that E:D will be the end for Oolite? I can hardly imag...

Re: Can't explain Oolite to the wife

Lucky Gumbo (me): "Amazora" (sweetheart) once was a powerful goddess in a well visited telnet MUD round the early 90's, has now retired to facebook on-line gaming. Makes it easy for me, as she understands how a computer game can get addictive and create a whole universe in your head. Still demands d...

Re: Why is Oolite so addictive?

I'm one of these 80s kids who, back then, were just impressed by what Elite made possible on a homecomputer. To me, being a newbie to Oolite (but not Elite) the stories provided a great background when, after 25 years, starting all over again with an Mk III and an empty cargo hold. I read Status Quo...

Re: How many OXPs can one install

Well, I have 58 OXPs installed, most of it being ambience / ship addons but also some missions: random hits, ionics and galactic navy. My favourite ambiance OXPs are: Snoopers, YAH (brilliant idea!), Tianve and Famous Planets. You OXP coders really are creative! ;)

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

Fugitive, once again (those cheap narcotics were just too much a profit opportunity to ignore them). Under persuit, once again. So what do you do? Right, jump out of the mess into a (hopefully) cop-free system. Bad thing: before starting the game, I've just added the Galactic Navy OXP - so once I ge...

How many OXPs can one install

I'm just curious: is there a limit on how many OXPs one can install? I've started weeks ago with a plain Oolite setup and added more and more eye candy and missions. Is that okay or are there OXPs that shouldn't get mixed with others?

Steely Dan. Sounds weird, but that's my favourite cruise and battle music.
