Shouldn't that be "Backstory?. We don't need no stinking backstory."

Re: Asteroid Storm

It would be easy to do in code to make the Asteroid Storm Mission happen with a low probability at any station. The trouble would be if failed it then takes out the Main Station, which other OXPs may expect to be there in order for their missions to run. So it was coded as a one off at just one syst...

Re: BGS - The BackgroundSet

[/quote]It's good that you've seen v1.5.2, but it will be better to use v1.6. BGS has switched to the new implemented VisualEffect class. So just grab the latest version and compare the effect with the old one.[/quote]

Thanks that worked. Even nicer jump effect in v1.6! 8)

Re: BGS - The BackgroundSet

Small thing on upgrading to 1.77 (love the new lasers). On jumping I still get the BGS cool warping effect, but then get the old-school rings. Using BGS on the last release (non-truck) the BGS effect completely replaced the rings. No biggy, but is anyone else getting this. Have updated BGS to the ne...

Re: The Assassins Guild OXP (Final Updated Version)

Hello Richard. I'm afraid its a case of the scripter (me) didn't cover the possibility of the Nova Device from the Soin Clan vengence mission blowing up a system that the player would later need to visit to complete a later Assassins mission. :oops: Dredging my memory I think when I wrote it for 1.6...

Re: Random Hits OXP

Added an edit. Fly towards the station rather than the planet. You're paths should cross. If you reach the station, flip over and fly back towards the Witchspace beacon. Not all marks are aggressive, so you need to check each contact. Not all will make themselves know by attacking, the may just keep...

Re: Random Hits OXP

If you find a mark and he jumps then you need to chase him by flying into the mark's own worm hole. If you do Oolite generates the mark's ship by the witchspace beacon at the same time you arrive. (Simulating both your ship and the mark's ship using the same hyperspace tunnel). If you use the hypers...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

The legal system of Elite (and therefore Oolite) is pretty barbaric. Any crime however minor will earn the Commander an Offender tag. It is legal for any Commander to kill any ship with an offender tag. The level of offence determins the bounty and the bounty goes down over time (each time you make ...

Re: Random Kudos

Glad your liking it! I think what happened was you shot down a ship which had earlier stolen some Mining Pods from the mining machines near the Bar. If you watch them, you'll see that from time to time they spit out a powered pod full of ore which the hopper (if unmolested) will scoop up. They can b...

If you google 7Zip, you can get a free extractor that can unzip tars as well as zips.
