Re: Metafiction: Dialogues on the Lore of Xlite

So, what I propose, is: an attempt at establishing consistent lore, rooted in real-life science, but reaching "beyond our current understanding" if necessary in order to maintain IU consistency. So you have alternate fiction threads that you wish to consolidate into one consistent whole representin...

Re: Weapon Laws OXZ

I was able to grab 1.4 from the wiki by looking up recent page changes and then downloading directly from your wiki File page. It works. I'm in Ensoreus and can only buy mining lasers! Thank you. So my Tibetan was just about up to it then. Tashi delek! :) The next issue is why it won't download fro...

Did you remember to dance widdershins around your computer whilst sacrificing your next-door neighbours and uttering chants in Sanskrit in order to appease the AppleMac download daemons?
Damn it! I used Tibetan... I'll have to invite the other neighbours round now :roll:

Yes, Zaonce, indeed. I was appalled.
v1.4 has just been uploaded.

Give that a try and see if it fixes the problem.

Thanks.

Re: Well-aligned multiple lasers

I think the idea I posterd here (under reimagined multiple lasers), whilst far from flawless, should result in the desired effect 9 times out of 10. So an 'invisible' central laser does all the damage whilst the false side lasers (visual effects) get all the credit for doing so. If the side lasers a...

Re: Metafiction: Dialogues on the Lore of Xlite

I think that it might be helpful to distinguish between RL (Real-Life) Science and IU (In-Universe) Science. My interpretation, Commander Redspear, is that, perhaps, you seem to have in mind in your first flow diagram: *RL* Science --> Fiction ...and in your second flow diagram: Game --> Fiction --...

Re: [RELEASE] Goods Container

But does it make any sense? If 'makes sense' means 'to be clear and easy to understand' then why should it? By explaining it as such Reval limits our ability to make it so according to our own understanding. As the author it would be to enforce the exact workings thereof upon our perception. Furthe...

No, no new lasers. The only new weapon I tried to add was the Vimana in the HUD, but that won't load on 1.90
Hmmm. In that case I'll likely get some time to test it over the weekend. Thanks for the report... Zaonce of all places!

Re: Weapon Laws OXZ

together with a bazillion other oxp's Which didn't happen to include New Lasers by any chance did it? Currently any other oxp which adds military lasers (or indeed any kind of laser), rather than just tweaking them, will be unaffected by this oxp. If that's the reason then it's not stritctly a glit...

Re: [RELEASE] Goods Container

Like it :)

I've thought of using pylons for stuff other than missiles/mines so I must have a poke around and see which method you used to do it.

Meanwhile, congratulations on another oxp contribution 8)

Re: Metafiction: Dialogues on the Lore of Xlite

I have no idea how to work with unknown scientific laws. :D Quite :D But there's a serious point here in terms of how one reacts to the unknown. I can't understand something on some level I'll find it unsatisfactory. So you're trying to understand the technology of an imagined future by using the s...
