Re: Scripters cove

While doing some minor tweaking to the CombatMFD.oxz found a reference to the combatSLBar which allows your HUD to show a gauge that displays the service level (when the next maintenance overhaul is needed) for your ship. Got my head around how to make the actual gauge and put it into my Coluber HUD...

Re: Screenshots

Looking great another_commander.

Out of curiosity once again, with these screenshots you have been posting with the new Improved Lighting, Materials, and Shader System are the images still being taken with Reshade in use or has the new stuff gone beyond the need to use Reshade?

Re: Screenshots

Just out of curiosity, is there a way in a nightly release to turn off the "Development version [numbers]" thing in the upper right corner? Really is an immersion killer for me, not to mention interfering with the MFD in the same location.

Re: Bounty-hunting for fun and profit

The Bounty Hunter's License already exists in GalCop's Most Wanted . As for the rest of it, unique ideas that read well to me and would be well worth implementing. Check with phkb to see if he would be interested in implementing them into the aforementioned OXZ as it seems a logical place for them. ...

Re: [RELEASE] ILS Instrument Landing System v1.11

ILS has a problem with any station that does not have its Docking Bay at the center point of the station. If you target such a station with your missile targeting system it will disable the ILS and you can dock safely, albeit manually. NPCs will not be so lucky and will crash into such non centered ...

Re: Bounty status

Bogatyr: There should be amnesty programs allowing a pilot to hand over contraband no questions asked upon docking or launching, and only an explicit decision bypassing this system upon launch should be seen as an illegal event.

Re: [WIP] Bounty system OXP

Bogatyr: Starting from the bottom of your post and working our way up. To be consistent, shouldn't all ships be marked only as "tentatively clean" until scanned? After all, you have no idea if a ship is an offender or a fugitive unless you've performed the scan. Use the POLICE IFF SCANNER UPGRADE to...

Re: How do I use the Warrant Scanner?

Easier still - Grab the LIBRARY OXZ which allows you to set various options for OXZ's that are hooked into it. The Warrant Scanner is hooked into it. The options therein allow for the following: Manual scan, as described above, which can be a pain in the exhaust plumes if you have a lot of primable ...

Re: Progress

It's all academic since Stable Version 1.86 is in use but here goes anyway. Removing just the f's does work. As to the eyeVector variable. The original line 291 was as follows: vec3 halfVector = normalize(lightVector + eyeVector); This was tweaked to remove only the eyeVector variable resulting in t...

T-Rex, no, not giant enough. Looking for monsters on a Godzilla scale of around 400 feet tall and/or long.

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Other than Godzilla and King Kong name five Giant Monsters. Bonus points if they are not Toho creations. Lots of bonus points if you can name the movie that predates the original Godzilla by a year featuring a giant alien robot bent on stealing all of Earth's energy from its power plants. All right ...
