Re: Using SymLinks under Windows.

I have heard of symlinks before but never used them. any chance of a quick how to? Under Windows click on start menu/run then type cmd and enter to get a command prompt in a black window, where you can type something like this (please chage the directory names to point where your files are): mklink...

Thanks, it wasnt my intent to derail the thread with a discussion of political ideals. Franky i abstained after my initial question because after trying to read the WI...

Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

the idea at this stage is to do that in the texture/image wrap. i think at this stage i just want to see it fly. any tweaking could be done later. ok as i just found out the ship has to fly along the Z axis so here is the model duly rotated and also the center line adjusted. correct orientated model...

Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

Hey Spud I just noticed in your screenshot that your ship is aligned along the x axis, ships fly along the z axis so your current model would fly sideways. You will need to rotate it around the y axis. Its a little old, but, there is some really good info on uv mapping in this thread. Shipbuilder h...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

I tend to forgot manual backups so I made a symlink into my Dropbox folder which points to my oolite-saves dir. In this way the backup is automatic and instant. i have heard of symlinks before but never used them. any chance of a quick how to? would be nice to use my box account. would this mean if...

Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

thanks, been youtubing for a tutorial on uv mapping and found a decent one. he is unfolding a military cap and has problems with it but it is very informative. i was wondering how to combine the separate parts on to the one map. towards the end of part 2 he does this and as usual its doh! that was e...

Re: So, what should I say about Oolite at Lavecon

As a new player i think one of the big draws is that everyones Ooniverse is coustomisable to how they want to see the game, from the basic vanilla to adding just the right OXp's for your taste in how the Ooniverse looks and plays. More ships, different HUD's, missions and all through the OXP system....
