Thank you so very much for the time and effort Diziet in bringing this add on up to date

You're very welcome.. :D

It may be worth adding this to the OXP List in the Wiki or even to the Manager

I'd say it would need more discussion and work first. At the moment, it spawns a Sothis Station in every single system/location the player goes to, regardless of political alignment or economic status. And even, as you mentioned, in interstellar space (which I wasn't aware of until you mentioned it). That doesn't strike me as ideal.

I don't know which add on does it, Market Enquirer or In System Trader, at a guess, but on the F4 Screen there appears in the list a heading of "Commodity Markets".
This, very helpfully lists the prices of commodities at The Main Station, Stations for Extra Planets and Kiota Stations.
I was wondering if their might be a way to incorporate the Markets kindly provided by Diziet Sma into this updated Sothis oxp, not , you understand, that I mind that the market is not incorporated too much as one can guesstimate the kind of prices one is likely to encounter.

It's more a matter of consistency, that said an argument may then be be made to incorporate Rock Hermit Markets. If I am asking too much, I am happy to slink away into the shadows on this matter. :)

I'm happy to take a gander at it.. can't promise it'll be soon. Some time within the next couple of weeks, at a guess.

Add "inquirer_station" to the station's roles and the station should appear on market inquirer screens. Strong emphasis on "should" though, it's been a while :).

Well, that just made things a lot easier.. thanks!

Edit: Confirmed! That works just fine.

@ Duggan - I'm pretty sure you can handle it from here?

There is a good reason that I do not code :)

May I ask , Do I add "inquirer_station" to

config script line 2 which reads;

this.role = "sothis";

so that it reads

this.role = "sothis""inquirer_station" ;

Do I replace

this.role = "sothis";

with

this.role = "inquirer_station" ;

Or is it something else, Sorry for being such a Dullard :)

Edit the "shipdata.plist" file
Around line 181 you should see something like this:
Code:
	roles = "sothis station"; 
Change this to:
Code:
	roles = "sothis station inquirer_station"; 
And you should be good to go. You shouldn't need to change the script.js file.
