Re: Single-Use Witchdrive OXP

Sorry for the late answer. I'm kinda occupied. Pffftooabbb..."Why" is what you are asking? That's 6 months ago. Frankly, all that is left in my mind of the reasoning behind "Why did I write the code, the way I did?" by now, is a faint blur of a memorysmear. :) I remember, that there were compatibili...

Re: Sun skimmer - Questions

@Astrobe: Thank you so much for your feedback. I hunger for every ounce of any form of feedback. I had my reasons, why I made the OXP the way I did. Here we go: First off: I wanted to create an in-system activity for beginning commanders, with empty pockets. I might have already mentioned it (Oh boy...

Re: Sun skimmer - Questions

Ah bugger! So, the oxz creates an error? I'm sorry if it does. It ran well on my computer, but I renamed it from SolarHarvest.oxz to SolarHarvest_alpha_0.1.oxz just before uploading and I never attempted to save a game with it. Also I just always started new ones. I'll put a warning infront of the d...

Re: About Quirium

I already posted a threat about Witchdrives ( Canon question about the Witchdrive ), which naturally contained a lot theories about Quirium. (Disembodied's post about his theories is especially noteworthy.) I like his idea about Quirium being an allotrope of Hydrogen. Cause you can find it in the co...

About Quirium

I had a funny idea about how Quirium might work, but when I wanted to post it, I noticed we actually don't have got a pure Quirium related threat. Isn't our precious, little unobtainium too important for the sake of spouting elite related scientific sounding nonsense ( ERSSN )? So I take this chance...

Re: Sun skimmer - Questions

Here's what I've got so far: Disclaimer: This is a ALPHAVERSION that hasn't been thoroughly tested. Don't use it on old savegames and try to save/overwrite them with this OXP. (Nothing too bad should happen, but it's just to be on the save side.) Just start a new game with it to take a look at its f...

Re: Sun skimmer - Questions

If you set beacon or beacon_label in shipdata.plist then easy to find using advanced compass. I also created a nice little (but very crudly done) symbol for the station, but this isn't good enough for me. The problem is, that witchfuel is dead cheap. The Solar station is a refinery. I've created tw...

Re: Sun skimmer - Questions

Actually I started an Addon containing a sun orbital station, a sunskimming activity/job for the player and a sunskimming transporter+AI . I got pretty far (I've made a fine stationmodel(80% finished, only polish left), the AI is also finished and the Equipment+new Commodity+Prizes looked also good ...

Re: Help with a Javascript exception

@Astrobe: Great the problem could be resolved this quickly. I don't want to sound nitpicky, it certainly isn't a big issue and I ain't a mod, but the thread title doesn't say much about its content. Also the problem is fixed. Changing the thread's title to something like "Scripting problem with Addi...

Re: [Release] In System Trader OXP 1.40!

Great, prices and quantities actualy differ more now per each station at a change event. Thank you for the update. They are all randomly placed within the range defined for the commodities in the station markets. The calculations are nearly mathematically identical to the calculations the game-engi...

Re: [Release] In System Trader OXP 1.40!

Jupp, now I know that. I just didn't realize there was such a pothole as those falsy values (0, false and ""). At some point I thought var bool = false; if (bool) log("true"); else log("false") yielded true and I thought: 'Aha, the name-only in the if-clause looks up the existence of an object.' (Of...

Re: [Release] In System Trader OXP 1.40!

JScript is funny. if capacity = 0 is a given property and you ask if capacity exists ( if someStation.market["someCommodity"].capacity) log("Yupp"); else log("Nope"); ) it tells you "Nope". If you ask it instead: if (someStation.market["someCommodity"].capacity||(someStation.market["someCommodity"]....

Re: [Release] In System Trader OXP 1.40!

I'm sorry I didn't answered immediately, but I'm kind of busy these days. I found the reason for the bug. The OXP-station's markets of Stations for Extra Planets don't contain a capacity property within the commodities property. This led to multiplying the new quantity value with an undefined value,...
