Re: Just a couple of questions...

StuffIt Expander will un-zip the oxz file, you can get it from the App Store if you haven't got it. I always do it the easy way: Change the extension from '.oxz' to '.zip'. That way the system will recognise it as an archive file and unzips it. When you append '.oxp' behind the resulting folder, yo...

Specially for that reason the [wiki]BuoyRepair[/wiki].oxp is written. The galactic repair facility will detect the missing buoy and replaces it by launching a tugger with a replacement buoy from the local main station.

Re: Split: Deployable subentities

One piece of code that is also needed in shipscripts that use timers: this.entityDestroyed = function () { this.$cleanupTimers(); } And in this.$cleanupTimers you have the code to stop and delete the timer. This is to prevent errors when the ship explodes while there is still a timer running.

Re: Imperial Courier V2.0

Thanks for testing the texture Lone_Wolf. In this case, I don't know if my graphic program wrote the profile wrong, or that libpng-1.6 interprets it wrong. (See also: http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/spec/1.2/PNG-Chunks.html ) This problem was less serious though than the original one. The original one...

Re: Imperial Courier V2.0

version 2.1 gives a new error with libpng 1.6 :. Interesting. The oxp has two similar textures of the two versions. The texture file of the navy version is original 66 KB and the normal one is 311 kB in size. Both with the same resolution. The normal one is saved in interlaced mode. If I open it wi...

Re: Oolite in the post-PC era?

… you could actually play Oolite on a tablet. As Android is a flavour of Linux, it would probably be quite straightforward (says he in ignorance). Linux is based on Unix, just as the Mac is. So, indeed there are big similarities. But, beside the internal technicalities, it will be a major effort to...

Re: Imperial Courier V2.0

Yesterday, I noticed that the Wiki still contains a link to a version with a wrong texture. One of the two ships in that version can't load the texture on a mac, since Oolite 1.77 and shows up with a black hull. This problem now also starts to show up with some Linux versions. Therefor I re-saved th...

Re: Quick batch png convertion (fix texture issues and warni

The Oolite binaries downloaded from oolite.org, link to libpng1.4 distributed with the Oolite installer. The mac build uses: libpng-1.5.13 That version has also issues with some files: PNG files saved in interlaced mode give errors. There are some oxp's around that use that format. There the effect...

Okay, leve it for later. The difference with your code is that the subentities don't jump between two positions, but change animated frame-by-frame from one position to the other, by the use of a frameCallback function. :)

Re: Scripters cove

Sorry, missed your post yesterday Eric, will have a look at that Buoy Repair.oxp I just filtered out the essential lines for you: this.buoy = new Array(); this.segmentName = "Navigation Buoy Segment"; this.shipSpawned = function () { if (this.ship.subEntities.length > 3) // has a segmented buoy. { ...

Re: Scripters cove

So basically I want to show the landing gear subentities when the docking sequence is going on, or when the ship launches, (which shows the landing rear extended or retracted at its place) and remove them and show them in their retracted state when the ship is not in its docking/undocking sequence....

Re: DeepSpacePirates.oxp

Version 1.5 is now on-line. Minimum Oolite version is now 1.80
Version 1.3 will stay available for older Oolite versions.


Downloadable from the Wiki page, or direct from within Oolite with the expansion manager.

In the past you could keep firing while cloaked, but that felt like cheating. Now it is less of an über-equipment.

Re: DeepSpacePirates.oxp

For a station-to-station adding oxp, you need traders with custom AI script that contain the destination station. Then you can add a shipDocked-handler which adds a new trader in the docking-que with a custom script to go to the station on the other side of the lane. I now realise that you do not ne...
