Re: Minor tweaks to improve play maybe

1. GNN changes up songs in iTunes Oolite playlists. (Interesting when you have 6 news reports and the song changes up every time you go to the next report. lol). I'll look at it. Maybe I could simply offer to go to the next report, if it doesn't use a callback. 2. Bioomarkets GNN ...<snip> Do you m...

Re: [Release] System Features: Rings

@RockDoctor: °sigh° @Prester John: Not so much memory. It's more a graphics card which can handle this. @gsagostinho:The rings are looking great now, gsagostinho! And after taking a look at the shader - some ideas: 1. It could be worth using Oolites fogUniform for the atmosphere instead. Then you ca...

So you mean I have to re-download Python 2.7 for *points at link above*?
:x *GRUMF!* Okay, I note.
Seems the WIKI is outdated as well. See this post by Ahruman.

Re: Help with Models for Absolute Beginners (wings3d and PC)

It might just be possible to use an obj file without the mtl (disclaimer: not sure, never done it), but I would expect that information related to textures of that model will be lost. Yep. BTW: The recommended converter script these days is Obj2DatTexNorm.py . It requires (if I recall it right) Pyt...

Re: Music in flight ?

A third option for tracks is available - reduce volume. Range is [0...1].

So

Code: Select all

{snd:"mySong01.ogg",dur:100}
becomes

Code: Select all

{snd:"mySong01.ogg",dur:100, vol:0.7}
This way you can adjust the songs to your needs.

btw: The demo does not use the full range of possibilities. See [EliteWiki] Lib_Music for more.

Re: Library

How is performance affected in general by this? Not at all .-) And I'm developing my Oolite related things on a 10 years old laptop with a weak CPU. It's still smooth and the FPS range doesn't change, so performance is not affected. The used framecallback doesn't do all updates in one turn though. ...

Re: Library

@BlackWolf: I'll upload a new version and send you the link. Library will get a new toy - In-System-Maps in 3D. The initial idea was to improve mission briefings. Reading through a lot of text ("Find this, go there, do that and return to us.") is a little bit a thing of the 90th. We can do more - so...
