OXP's missing from Wiki OXP list.

Post by Diziet Sma »

I noticed that there are currently several oxp's that are missing from the list on the Oolite Wiki... I want to update the page to reflect the current state-of-the-art, but I'd like to avoid doing multiple edits, if I can.. (that table-colour format is a pain when adding entries in the middle - as can be seen by the fact that the sequence is broken in several places)

So I'd like to ask everyone to nominate oxp's that are not in the list, but ought to be... once I have a (hopefully) complete list, I can do the update in one swell foop..

Currently in my list I have:

Target Reticle - partially included already
Target Autolock
German Translation
Cataclysm - DONE
Chaff Dispenser - part of Missiles & Bombs
The Neolite Set
Bounty Scanner - DONE
Save Anywhere - DONE
Fuel Collector - DONE
Status Quo Q-bomb - only mentioned on Commander McLane's page
Famous Planets - partially included already
Cloud City
Busy Ports


What have I missed?

Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

Target autolock is in the main list, just below Tarantis Corp HQ and above the Teretrurus mk 1.

Neolite's not up there, either. It most definitely should be. It's a must-have OXP.

Ahh.. I forgot to list them... thanks for reminding me.. I was discussing that very topic with Simon just a few days ago..

List updated.

Target Reticle is in the equipment list, lower on that wiki page. It has already an own page to download from.

When you add new stuff better give them a download page of their own. That way there is only one place with a link to update when a new version is released. With oxp's that have download links on several wiki pages, I often see that some locations still link to outdated versions.

German Translation :
All the foreign languages oxp's should probably get a page of their own with a brief explanation for its application.

Thanks for the tip! Good idea... I might see if I can track those down while I'm at it..

Nor is the fuel collector.

Looks like Frame's OXPs may not generally be on the list?

Added Frame's Bounty Scanner and Save Anywhere to the list.. also his Fuel Collector.. he doesn't link to it in his sig, so it took me a while to find.. cool gadget, I had no idea it existed.

You may want to check with him about Save Anywhere. I'm not sure it's currently working correctly (at least it doesn't on my system), and I think he was taking a sabbatical from updating things until 1.73 at least.

Could be a reason he does not want it on the list at al.

Well, when he replies to the PM I sent, we'll know...

Frame is happy for his oxp's to be listed... he's just been too busy to do it himself. :D
