Re: Tionisla Reporter

Just managed it, its not broken, you just have to do the trip the other way round.

Just got back into Oolite after a couple of years and reinstalled, so I assume I am on the current version of everything.

Re: Amaranth's Projects

Although I enjoy constructing starship models, I still have problems with compiling a workable oxp, and have got frustrated and lost interest. Therefore, unfortunately I am going to give it a break for a bit. When I had posted previews of what I was intending, the response seemed positive so it woul...

Re: Amaranth's Projects

Sorry I have been quiet recently, - real life. but there is also another reason why I have been unable to release the ships I have created. I cannot work out how to place and define exhaust plumes using quaternions. Is there a simple converter I can use whereby I can pull off the model, the XYZ of t...

Re: galcop's

I like Illegal goods tweak. Very handy if you have scooped up a load of cargo after a dogfight and forgotton that you have picked up contraband. And it removes the get rich extremely quick method of buying narcotics or slaves at a Seedy Space Bar and flogging them at the main station. Now a good ide...

Re: Sizes and scale in Oolite (again)

Clever idea but...I think you would need the floors to be circular in profile, otherwise there would be some awkward off-grav sections near the joins (the gravity would be 22.5 degrees out near these points). Bear in mind that the gravity is produced using rotation only, so it would operate radially...

Re: Amaranth's Projects

OK I know I have a few things out there still classified as test releases but I have some more coming up. The first, as discussed on the Blender thread (which I don't wish to hijack as it is a fantastic source of info for working with Blender) is the Clone Wars Acclamator Class (the sort of star des...

Re: Blender 3d Modeling Tutorials

Hi, I have a UV unwrapping problem. When unwrapping a model I am working on, part of the ship stays white and it will not let me edit it. The rest unwraps OK and can be textured. I have checked that the faces concerned are not treated as separate objects and that the whole model is selected before u...

Re: Boarding abandoned ships?

I've always liked the idea that you could tow in a derelict and 'cash it in', maybe you could 'weigh it in' for scrap, or sometimes you would get a bounty from an insurance company or even a grateful owner who had to eject but the ship never got finished off by whoever was attacking. Maybe even GalC...

Re: Amaranth's Projects

I have a quick test version to play around with. The tanks are not frangiable because I'm not that good at modelmaking yet. Also, for some reason, oolite does not read the texture, but I am not able to see where my error is. Can someone help please?


EDIT link amended, see later post.

Re: Amaranth's Projects

Rather than hijack the other thread, here's my concept for a tanker or generic bulk liquid transporter. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v466/Cardiffrail/oolite/tanker2.png Unfortunately I'm no good at coding plists, so if anyone wants to play around with this, I'll put the dat and texture on my bo...

Re: Huge Star Wars News

As a Star Wars (and space-fantasy in general) fan, I am certainly hopeful that this new development will bring good new films. There is only one concern though - Lucas has been very accepting of fan-made derivatives of Star Wars, as long as they are not for profit (for example there are some SW oxp ...

Re: Tankers

If you are interested, I'll skin this and put it on my box account next week as a model to work with. (unfortunately, I'm no good at scripting)
