Re: Oolite Multiplayer? Please read

being that i have helped develop MMO style games before, like total conversions of freelancer. the thing is like phkb said, the oxps would have to be culled in order to push one homogenous build from the server to the players. this takes a lot of the customization out of the game. so for instance, o...

Re: JB WIP thread: several ships

Re: JB WIP thread: several ships

ok, been kinda busy with other things lately, but i did manage to import and convert some of griffs stuff into blender files where i set up the measurements in metric, and they seem to be pretty close to, well close enough, to actual listed dimensions in the wiki. so far anyway. since i used an olde...

Re: Converted dat2obj model has 0 verticies

ok, i think i figured out some of the issue, i downloaded everything in the subfolder, but did not download everything outside it. and yeah, kind of off topic so i will take it back to PMs with griff.

Re: [UPDATED RELEASE 03-07-2014] Superhub V1.6 OXZ

is the dock an untextured model of some sort? i think it is. could the solution be to make the dock box larger? or maybe center it a bit better?

Re: New epansion pack modernization WIP: Anarchies

Sounds like good stuff, though it would be courteous to have a conversation with the author of the original pack. (I say this just in case you haven't.) Thats the plan, however if i can't reach them then i may have to just release it anyway, with the changes. OOps, have to retract my model and text...

Re: JB WIP thread: several ships

ok, that is where scaling is an issue, because even with the source files from griff, importing the objects together reveals they are not to scale as assumed. and this is what a lot of people have mentioned previously about scaling issues in OOlite and even in the original games. now granted, the ti...

Re: JB WIP thread: several ships

small update, redoing the tiger trader, since my only point of reference for it was the charts i found online showing blue polygons. i misinterpreted the direction the hull faced, so i will probably make the first model i did into something else. does anyone have any idea what the dimensions are sup...

New epansion pack modernization WIP: Anarchies

First one to actually be finished texturing and modeling (so far, still have to go through and check a few things such as texture refinement and naming convention) but still needs to be placed in game, is the Anarchies expansion. this features all new models for the rock hermit stations (salvager an...

Re: Converted dat2obj model has 0 verticies

Would love to be able to see them, but the link does not work for me (server not found) nor do I see anything but place holders in the post below:s not sure why, but i think maybe it has something to do with certain domains being blocked (for most likely silly reasons) by your own country. if that ...
