Re: [Test release:] Super-Sidewinder(!) (and other OXPs updated)

Over to you, Sir! If I unearth anything else, I'll bung it in! Thank you Cholmondely, I added the missing details plus some more info from this page and the readme.txt. Perhaps at some stage you could show me where to find the data in the .oxp files - and if the numbers need interpretation of any s...

Re: [REL] Firefly (Serenity)

Well, its 9 years, but today I uploaded a tweak. I added another texture and equipped this ship with more lasers. For further details please read below: Overview ======== This multi-purpose, medium-sized transport ship is a homage to the Firefly Class ship "Serenity" from the Firefly TV s...

Re: Oolite Wiki

Would it not make sense to define a structure that does not require documentation but shows where to place it? Later, when submitting an OXP to be registered in the Expansion Manager some minimum quality checks could be applied. Here is a typical manifest.plist: { "identifier" = "ool...

Re: Recovering "Lost" OXPs: Expanding Seosu/Capisastra OXP

I do see your point. But. 1) We are talking about an OXP, not the core/vanilla game. 2) We can probably redo some of the maps (if it is that important). 3) We are talking about Galaxy 4. How many people can name even 10 of the 256 systems in Galaxy 4? How many people will notice a missing system? A...

Re: Oolite Wiki

It seems you are (at least sometimes) an OXP developer. All my own OXP's are currently on hold, for the past months I just take the work of others, update it for the latest Oolite release and upload them to the manager. some OXP's are no real OXPs (I am not sure if I understand that) Technically it...

Re: Recovering "Lost" OXPs: Expanding Seosu/Capisastra OXP

But: Do we have the coding technology to hew a closer line to Selezen's proposal, and remove a system from the F6/7 screens in Galaxy 4 which can then act as the base for the Seosians/Capisastrans? And do we have the coding technology to use it as a base with armadas fanning out from it to lay wast...

Re: Recovering "Lost" OXPs: Expanding Seosu/Capisastra OXP

if this inimical species is based in hyperspace/interstellar space, with artificial stars, surely their technology will be so advanced that they no longer need spaceships looking like space invaders! An old race in permanent conflict on a planet between the stars ? I think they do need to be raider...

Re: Recovering "Lost" OXPs

Just had a look at the maps, several systems are close to each other, some at major traffic points. To add some spice the frequency of raids could get lower the more far from the rouge planet the target is. Checking the distance and reducing the random chances before adding a group would do the tric...

Re: Recovering "Lost" OXPs

A warlike race with low resources on the homeworld, I guess interstellar would fit. To keep a tropical jungle world there would require a lot of artificial suns, so the raids got some reasons. Being their only planet a lot of warships would be in the orbit and, trust Cody, you will need them. :wink:

Re: Recovering "Lost" OXPs

Quite! But need to squeeze in an extra system to the 256 hard-coded for the Galaxy to fit in with the plot line. Unless we can just remove one from the F6 map, so to speak, hiding the location. Spawn a rogue planet in interstellar space, and you got a hidden one, some (a lot) artificial suns/statio...

Not that I know of, the OXP got no new stations or planets included. Could be fun to pick a jungle world from additional planets and make it their home world. :lol:

1) Cloud City.oxp by Dr Beeb for Zarece et al. : http://www.aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5932 Never hear of that one before, thank you for that. 2) Seosu.oxp/Capisastra.oxp by dear old Selezen: see http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Capisastra_OXP on the wiki! Seosu is not mapped on Galaxy...

How can I share that with others who are online here?
You can try https://account.box.com/login, it's free and was for a while the preferred location for OXP's.
