Re: Squeaky clean assassins.

There is a reputation-based system for who Vipers side with in clean-vs-clean fights that's more complex than "who they see shoot first", though that is there as a tie break. It affects other NPCs too, in different ways. That never occurred to me, despite countless previous "Your help in keeping xx...

Re: Introduce Yourself.

<Waves> Hi there, getlucky. May your ship always return safely home with a hull integrety of 100% :-) Now, now, there's some nights when you'd rather return home with a touch less than 100% to your integrity, just so you know you've had a good time! And the new commander's screen name is GetLucky, ...

Re: Smugglers - The Galactic Underworld (BETA)

Coming along nicely! I like the new screen overlays for the interfaces and there seems to be a lot of new in-game reasons for classes of goods being outlawed. Very fun to read.

Re: A few more ideas...

The problem with the first suggestion is, over time, it would tend to just generate even more huge piles of credits that the player has no hope of ever spending.. Well! That's easy enough to fix. Make all of the investments bad ones. *eyebrow waggle* You sank /how/ much into the startup for Worm Re...

Re: Gotta say...

Yes, welcome! :D I've been an Ooliteer for a full year now, and it never gets old. There's always something new after each witchjump, and I don't mean jumpscares. :lol: That'd be a great OXP idea, btw.

Re: Wear and tear strain

hull degradation? I think you mean serviceLevel . This is not affected by Injectors but hyperjumps to another system and received hits without shields in combat. One thing I always wondered about this, does the game engine care if the Witchspace jump is generated by your own ship versus bumming a l...

Re: ArcElite ships oxp

Thanks for the prompt reply, Griff. I've nabbed the file and had a look, and, my-oh-my, but this is a lovely little hidden gem of an OXP. Where do I even begin? I never had the chance or the equipment to play the original ArcElite back in the day (My first version was an IBM clone.), so getting to s...

Oh I never said it was a problem, I like it and will be keeping it, maybe I'm a tad 'eccentric' Though never really been rich enough for eccentric just plain mad in my family. Well, ok, but my point was that that math error isn't supposed to be happening, and the only time I ever had the same probl...

I don't seem to be able to download this oxp from the box account; is the file down or just at a monthly data-cap?

Re: 2015 Ig-Nobel awards

<chuckles> Remember you need to keep being nice to me if you want that blue Cobra 2... :wink: Or I could, y'know, edit the texture files. :p The original Cobra II didn't come in blue or with my personal livery on it, either. (Which I'd have to add in any event, even if you do produce it in blue.)

Re: Tinkerer's Workshop - OXP tweaking for fun and profit!

I've got a lot of older oxp's with station markets that don't work in 1.82, for obvious reasons-- I know how to convert most of them, but is there a simple way to remove access to the F8 market screen entirely? Rather than show an empty market, in some cases I'd just rather have those stations not ...
