Re: Offender

Is there any way to wipe out that one youthful transgression from my books and clear my name? It's possible, I think, to purge away your sins doing Good Works. This pretty much consists of slaughtering any and every ship you see that happens to bear an "offender" or "fugitive" tag: get hold of a Sc...

Well, that's definitely a good start. Understanding usually grows with more practise, after all it's no occult knowledge we are practising here. So keep up with it! Right On, Commander! :) ***** P.S.: In a later stage of development you can even think of making a model of its own for the Free Tradi...

Maybe I should mention that there is something like this in Anarchies.oxp. It was not yet included in the 0.1-release on Oosat2, but it will be there in the 1.0-release. The story is like this: In some of the most dangerous, pirate-infested anarchies GalCop has set up a military station, called a S...

It's not a ship thing, it's commodity pricing, unless a rock hemit, or other non-planet, dockables, fit into that category. If this doesn't make sense, blame it on the red wine, and German beer,........................hic. From what I can see, poking around inside some other OXPs like a monkey with...

Cheers, LittleBear! That's a hell of a lot simpler than I thought it would be... Now, of course, I'm running out of excuses not to actually *start* :oops:

Nice idea. Perhaps as a penalty for docking with these dens of inequity, increment the player's legal status, (just need one command and you could steal the method for doing so from CM's Anarchies.oxp) :wink: . Maybe also add some ships with the role pirate, near the base when the player launches f...

The idea of a jackpot on prices is ok providing it's a very rare occurence, and it would have to be randomised as far as planets are concerned, in other words, not at a particular planet, and not repeated, otherwise if a planet was known to have brilliant prices ad infinitum it would upset the game...

Partly because I'll be sorry to see those cheap fur prices go, and partly because I'm fond of my earlier rationalisation with regard to the sale of stolen goods, I'm thinking about trying my hand at making a small OXP which will play around with commodities prices. "Free Trade Zones": appearing in s...

Ah! You are of course referring to the mythical Temple of Gile the Creator. Although none have ever seen it, the ancient manuscripts say that it is an immense asteroid shaped rather like a piece of fruit from the species Malus domestica that has a portion missing from the upper right-hand side. A d...

IIRC hidden messages and screens written by programmers are called easter eggs, I wonder if it's possible to do that in OXP's You wouldn't have to hide anything: just make a particularly baroque object, like a gigantic asteroid in the shape of your own head. Ooh, with the docking port in the mouth!...

Actually the Gas giants all have 'LittleBear done this' written on the back using clouds (and in one case, a system of fjords :wink:) See, that's the kind of thing I'd do, if I was capable: I don't know how Ahruman resists the temptation to carve his face into the surface of a sun, or scrawl his ve...
