Re: ComOonity Covers - Oolite Orchestrations

Mostly it just comes to me. I might hear or recall a song and think 'that could be fun' then all it needs is a hook to get started. The right syllable count for each line and rhyming not only with the next/previous line but also with the original where possible. Humour is subjective of course but I...

Re: ComOonity Covers - Oolite Orchestrations

this Zee-Pee-Gees tune Right on Commander! Another masterpiece. 'Zee-Pee-Gees' <-- brilliant! How do you do it? Does it just hit you and come effortlessly or do you spend time on reworking and tweaking? I love "Orbital Shuttle". It works so well with the original song. For me, I find it hard to wri...

For Mac we have Retina support (which I am not sure it goes up to 4K levels)
It does. I play on a 15" macbook pro at 3840 × 2400 pixels.
(This is technically not quite 'cinema' 4K. It is UHD (ultra high def) but people refer to it as 4K.)

So this Sidewinder found the safe spot in the eye of the missile tornado.
The missile was not mine. I found it like this.

Re: ComOonity Covers - Oolite Orchestrations

Sorry about that last one. This is to make up for it. (For those of high density [or low age] this is to the tune of Lola by The Kinks.) "Cobra" I got her at Lave Academy When I finished my training and they issued me my diploma, D-i-p-l-o-ma The officer told me: here is your ship I asked for an Asp...

Re: ComOonity Covers - Oolite Orchestrations

Can't believe I just saw this, awesome thread. In that case you should know that there is a List of Oolite Songs . And just for fun, this one is to the tune of "He's got the whole world in his hands", and could probably use some additional verses wink wink nudge nudge saynomore. "He's got the fligh...

Re: Credits For Nothing (and y'r Ships 'r Free)

@hoqllnq Way to late to add rep, but Well done! Different slant on the classic. Thanks! It might just be the impetus I need to create a thread of links to them. I have compiled this list: List of Oolite Songs (You have an impressive number of entries in this list. [edit to add: especially for someo...

Re: Variable jump times

How would the game cope with ships sharing a wormhole? Would the jump time be determined by the ship that made the wormhole? Or the biggest ship in the convoy? Or the total mass of ships? You can not go through a wormhole that was created by a ship that is lighter than you, because that wormhole is...

For example:

Code: Select all

var r = Math.random();
var z = 1000;
while (z--) {
	r();
}
Should that be:

Code: Select all

var r = Math.random;
without the parentheses,
so that the value of r becomes (a reference to) the function itself, not the result of calling the function?

Re: HTML5 Galaxy Maps

Thanks. This fixes the clipping for the bottom item. For the top item, 1px is not enough, but 4px is.

A total of 55 ships were destroyed (plus one other item), .. Any insights on what other this other item might be?
I have come to find out that the 'other items' are (or at least include) missiles that you destroy using weapons, i.e. not by ECM or by 'catching' it.

Re: HTML5 Galaxy Maps

That looks very nice. Well done and thank you! When you have the top (or bottom when it is collapsed) entry selected in the sector overview, the focus box is clipped. I guess some div needs padding or spacing or whatever you kids call things these days. (Picture that shows it.) This is in Chrome on ...

Re: Javascript oddity (?)

I am not a javascript guru, but in any language I know, without the parentheses it is not a function call. It is just an expression that resolves to a value of the type 'function', that 'points to' / has the value of $whatTheFuck. In a compiled language you'd get a warning for this along the lines o...

Used to make a horrible screeching noise when you were too close to the station walls.
Ooof I remember that horrible screeching noise so well... the sound of rapidly draining shields.
