It’s been a long time that I uninstalled “prototype boa NPC”.
Does anyone know where this comes from?
Thanks!!!!!

The turret ranges used to be a hardcoded value of 7500m in the past. About a year ago, I changed it to be more dynamic and dependent on general weapon range so that if that would change, the actual turret range would adjust itself automatically. That range with the default values resulted in a current value of 7200m. So, any OXP that was done prior to that change and used a value of 7500m for turret ranges would throw this wartning, which is completley harmless and is really just a notification that turret range will be set to something slightly less than what is specified in the OXP.

If you have un-installed the OXP you should not be seeing log messages about it. Have you a second version installed somewhere? For example if you un-installed the OXZ from the managed addons, have you also got a version in your regular AddOns folder?

Thanks you for your answers, Another_commander and smivs.
There seems not to be a second version installed.
"Escort contracts OXP” makes a reference to griff prototype boa:

"griff_boa_prototype_ec_mother" =
{
like_ship = "griff_NPC_prototype_boa_decals_from_alpha_channel";
escorts = 0;
escort_roles = ();
roles = "ec_mother(1)";
script = "ec_mother.js";
has_ecm = 1;
has_escape_pod = 0;
has_fuel_injection = 1;
beacon = "M";
beacon_label = "Escort Mother";
scan_class = "CLASS_ROCK";
cargo_carried = "PLENTIFUL_GOODS";
pilot = "oolite-trader";
scanner_display_color1 = "yellowColor";
scanner_display_color2 = "magentaColor";
forward_weapon_type = "WEAPON_BEAM_LASER";
aft_weapon_type = "WEAPON_BEAM_LASER";
is_external_dependency = yes;
};


But it can not be used because the ship is not installed. I´ve never come across a prototype boa.
Thanks!!!!!!
