v1.84 release

Post by phkb »

I know it's been a bit quiet around the boards recently, but I would just like to give my heartfelt thanks to all the developers who've put in so much effort to get this new release over the line. I really appreciate all the new features (external camera panning! yay!) and for squashing so many bugs. You guys rock, and deserve a well-earned break. Enjoy a cold one of whatever your favourite brew is!

Right on, commanders!

Yes, thank you for all core developers! :)

@Getafix: could you inform some distro maintainers (ubuntu, mint, debian...) about the new version?

I've already notified a debian maintainer we had contacted in the past.

Try and sneak Oolite 1.84 out while I was offline, would ya? Ha! My ISP wasn't having that.
Less than twelve hours it 'em took to switch me over - and it's up to speed already!


Kudos to the Admiralty - 1.84 is a really solid, stable, release!

Oolite is simply one of the best free open source games. Thanks to the core team and the OXP creators.

Thank you for all your good work! Since version(s) 1.83 already seemed stable to me, I think it is time for me to remove 1.82 and switch to 1.84.

Super excited for multiple laser mounts, but I can't figure out how to do it. Has anyone found out how to mount multiple lasers? I accidentally sold my Military Laser for a Beam XD

Here is an example with multiple laser setup for the Krait, from the original pull request when the feature was first introduced: https://github.com/OoliteProject/oolite/pull/161. This should hopefully help as a starting point.

So it's a script-able feature and not an implemented mechanic?

It is an implemented mechanic, but it is not applied to any of the core ships by default. You will need to set it up by modifying your shipdata.plist entries of the ships you want to have multiple lasers on.

Edit to add: Check also the Multiple Lasers OXP for an example of how it is done with player ships.

Given I know nothing of coding Oolite, I'm screwed :D

See the edit in my earlier post. Somebody has already gone into the trouble of coding what you want to do.
