I think that might cause problems for people who do not have the Behemoth OXP installed which is to be modified. It'd be an override for a missing ship. Going forwards, it would mean if those Behemoth OXPs were corrected in their own right these overrides might override the corrections.

I just noticed in my log:

Code: Select all

[plist.parse.failed] OOPListParsing.m:74: Failed to parse /Users/ericwalch/Library/Application Support/Oolite/AddOns/Galactic_Navy 5.4.2.oxp/Config/descriptions.plist as a property list.
Encountered unexpected character - on line 2860
Looking at those lines I see

Code: Select all

-	<key>navySeccomBuoy</key>
-	<array>
-		<integer>-3</integer>
-		<integer>-4</integer>
-		<integer>-2</integer>
-		<integer>0</integer>
-		<integer>-5</integer>
From there on every line starts with a minus symbol. When opening the file with a plist editor, those characters are even ignored and removed on re-saveing. But Oolite in its mac-version refuses to load this plist. (they are probably no minus symbols but other illegal characters represented this way, but at least two different editors show these symbols)

I can confirm that my copy of 5.4.2 has these minus symbols too!

Those lines also appear in V5.4.1, but do not in versions 5.3.0 and 5.2.2.

Well, this explains why the Navy SecCom buoy wasn't displaying a star like it should. However, I'm using Win7, and here Oolite 1.75.3 seems to have missed that problem entirely.

Anyway, it's been fixed and a new version uploaded. For those people who already have the add-on, the Descriptions.plist is here. Just download it and replace the one in Galactic Navy's Config folder.

Also, can someone update the wiki for me? Preferably by putting in a link to this thread rather than a direct link to the download file? I can't edit the wiki myself still.

Does anyone see a .git folder inside the Galactic_Navy 5.4.2.oxp folder?

While that should have been deleted, it's harmless and won't cause any problems.

Just did, both added a link to this thread and updated the download link (kept it for convenience).

I might be being thick here but trying to find Galactic Navy post to sign up for Reservist Action, trying to compare the picture of navy outposts with the galactic map and struggling - is there easier way of working out where to go?

TIA.

Phantor Gorth and I are currently working on a new addition for BGS to get the LongRangeChart a little bit closer to Clyms wonderful Vector maps... .-)

I'm currently in the system for Sector 7, but I can't find the Secom station on my advanced compass?

Does it have a navigation buoy?

If I remember correctly, SecCom stations have an 'S' on the ASC.
