Re: displayNameForCommodity

The JS Manifest object supports manifest.gemStones and manifest.gem_stones as alternatives to the canonical name, which is manifest["gem-stones"] . Similarly, the canonical names for alien items and liquor/wines are "liquor/wines" and "alien items" respectively. The canonical names also work with d...

Yep!

Re: TAF oopses, a fix?

And, to meet the request of letting js know "what's going on", a new property will be added to the global environment, called ' debug ': in future TAF (and another debug only js feature - takeSnapShot) - will be accessible to js through the new debug property. Diziet, TAF has been a part of the debu...

Re: TAF oopses, a fix?

I drive-by skimmed this thread, and very much agree with having variable TAF only active when FPS is showing. In addition to that, I'm thinking that we could have takeSnapShot() only work if there's a connectcted js console, thereby clarifying - yet again - the debug-only nature of those two! :) By ...

Re: Oolite Multiplayer? Please read

v1.76 downloads on Berlios = 11,418. Those stats are not 'very' accurate: since BerliOS started piggybacking on sourceforge, the sf downloads are not counted in those statisics. I believe there's another 10k separate downloads from there. Using the same calculations as you, we can get to almost 1 m...

Maybe 'Jumping galaxy to Inerra?' is a possible alternative.
However, I did understand 'another galaxy to Inerra?' as intended, so my advice might not be that useful...

Re: Two equipment-related requests

The passenger berths thing is a quick example of what could easily happen in the future if someone adds a different oxp with different ideas of what equipment requires cargo space, and what doesn't. Having different OXPs with different equipment-overrides.plist containing conflicting required_cargo_...

Re: No stats on Box

Well, there's a few free web hosting companies, some even offering unlimited bandwidth.
The downside would be you'd have to use server log analysing software to find those stats out.
On the upside, some rudimentary log analysing features are already included in most packages!

Re: Two equipment-related requests

I've had a quick look at the way adding passenger berths works, and it's not pretty. Berths are handled as a very special case, and there's no provision in the existing code for a more generic way of handling required_cargo_space. And, well, there are other factors, apart from figuring out a way of ...

Re: Beacons on the Advanced Space Compass

It's an option for the future, but keeping track of which station is the main station for which entity I reckon is going to require a lot of code auditing... something for 1.79/1.80 perhaps! ;)

Beacons, Compassess, Shapes!

For a few days now we had people asking to change the triangle shape used to identify buoys on the compass, due to centring the icon on the compass itself presenting a bit of a learning curve. A regular diamond shape - much easier to centre - was put forward as a proposed replacement, without too mu...

Hi! For my part, I do find the concept: "don't fix it, don't fix it, you must have a hidden agenda for wanting to fix bugs!" frankly baffling.
