Re: Mossfoot's Tales of Woe...

It can be destroyed, though it takes a force as mean as a whole sun blowing up to do it, aka the nova mission. Meaning no weapon available on the market (apart from the abovementioned killits) can demolish a main station. Although there was a time way way back when stations could be destroyed with e...

Re: Strange weapons disappearance in saved ship files

1.8 comes with Griff ship models, and native shipdata templates for each one. That includes template entries for NPC and player Ferdys, with auto-AI, auto-weapons, weighted roles et al for the NPCs. Also includes a default fore weapon for the player ship. As an example, your shipdata file could look...

NPC scanners in 1.8

It seems the good guy NPC - escorts, hunters, and vipers - have longer ranged scanners than the player. Often they're reporting bad guys over the comm and moving to attack, well before I see the bandits. I can be practically on top of the viper or hunter squad when they do it too, and if I turn and ...

Re: Strange weapons disappearance in saved ship files

hmm. Hard to say without knowing what your shipdata files looks like. Maybe looking at the shipdata from my slightly tweaked Griff Ferdy can help... "griff_ferdelance2013-PLAYER" = { like_ship = "oolite_template_ferdelance-player"; aft_eject_position = "0.0 -13.8 -36.8"; exhaust = ("0.0 1.59051 -40....

Re: [OXP REQ] Laser burstfire module

While trying to ignore the ppl obsessed with turning oolite into an ED clone :gives Dertien a look: , and the Jamesons who demanded laser coolers *you know who you are*, let's have a detailed look at the profiler command, to understand how it works. http://s28.postimg.org/r2a9ds0ct/saitek_joystick_b...

Re: [OXP REQ] Laser burstfire module

I know right! That's why I suggested a bustfire module as an oxp/oxz; no profiler software needed.

Re: [OXP REQ] Laser burstfire module

Ok. It could be a feature to add to the core game then, as per this thread.

A_C makes a good point.

However, too many minors cuss like sailors these days, a lot worse than Moss' narrative. I blame that auditory trash they mistakenly call music these days. :roll: A sign of the times...

[OXP REQ] Laser burstfire module

I've managed to simulate burst fire using my Saitek joystick profiler, thusly: http://s28.postimg.org/r2a9ds0ct/saitek_joystick_burstfire.png What this does is fire a short burst with a single pull of the trigger. Holding the trigger fires a burst, waits a half second, fires another burst... Lather ...

Re: Core game improvements (OXP code worth inclusion)

This shouldn't have to be mentioned, but wth I'll call it to your attention anyway. There's many players that run oolite on not-so powerful computers; old machines getting a bit long in the tooth, laptops, net-tops, Pandora et al, and a broad range of graphics, from crappy onboard chipsets to the cu...

Re: David Braben's Elite: Dangerous

THEY HAVE 2 FRONT LASERS!!! :shock: :( :cry: Watching the youtube videos on ED posted by it's test pilots, I've noted... - All ships have forward firing weapons. There's no side or rear mounted guns. - Depending on the ship, there can be a mixed number of weapons. For examples, the starting Sidewin...

Re: Skinner’s Den

OT: With adobe's recent decision to move its products over to subscription based licensing i've been seeing a lot of people on graphics forums posting up links to alternatives to most of the adobe products, here's one i hadn't heard of that seems to be highly regarded - it looks like it's mainly su...

Re: "The Adventures of Captain Morgan" Or "Damn That Mossfoo

Great. Now all we have to do is patch the world back together after Drew put a rocket up it (In the nicest possible way of course) and everything should be back on track. Shouldn't be too hard. It's just like infinite crisis but with less spandex. Not just any missile, but a modded hardhead tipped ...
