Stashes expansion

Post by popsch »

Hi,

Wrote my first OXP. While I'm waiting for access to release it, does anyone want to try it before I can release it? Any feedback is appreciated.

Cheers.

It's all in the manifest :D

It adds stashes of cargo pods with a proximity warning. Just ignore the warning and see what treat you get. :twisted:

So far there are six different types of stashes, but it's all in array form and trivial to maintain and extend. So ideas are welcome.



Spoiler: It only has 1% * techLevel of chance to appear. If you open the OXP, you can change it by changing this.trapLikelihood. If you want to force it, set this.debugProximityTrap to 1.

description = "Adds activities in space: treasure caches, honeypots, abandoned stashes, restricted military airspace, etc.";
Cute.. I like it.
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

And here from the title I thought this would be an OXP about growing facial hair.

Has anyone else had problems trying to download this from the download manager? I've tried a number of times but it gets to the end of the download - the full amount of kb's are downloaded - then I just get the error message that the download has failed.

I'm running v1.82 on Windows 7.

Sorry for the lack of other info - I'm stuck bored at work so haven't got any other details to hand.

Thanks

That's generally indicative of a certain type of manifest.plist problem.. but I don't recall which one, offhand.

It has actually been downloaded.. but Oolite is refusing to add it to the game. IIRC, Oolite will have stored the downloaded file in GNUstep/Library/Caches/org.aegidian.oolite/

Take a peek inside the OXZ, and you might be able to figure out what's wrong with the manifest.plist.

I see nothing wrong in manifest.plist so I guess the link provided by dropbox is not enough direct for Oolite.
