I just have to say the camera concept is an interesting one for other mission OXPs. Mystery ship out there in the ooniverse - first challenge is getting some decent photos of it so the powers that be can decide whether you need to go back and shoot it or whatever..... :roll:....and of course it's camera shy.

Maybe some one out there will pay for great photos of furballs, or an updated personalities.oxp could include a paparazzi element...

I vaguely recall docking with a Behemoth that had a non-zero commodities.plist market in interstellar space, though I may be mistaken...and it could've been a Behemoth in a regular system.

I think that I intentionally set it to no-market because there can't be a market in interstellar space. I just noticed it again in trying to to add such a custom market. So, I think the last glitches are removed and I make it a proper release next weekend.
Bump! Version 1.0.1 still has zero prices and stock.

I know that feeling. After hours of playing time, I am returning to Tionisla with 10 useless photos to see what happens next. Right now I just find this OXP annoying and rather wish I hadn't bothered. :(

Also, "2.6 LY NW of Biorle" might have been a better clue. I ended up looking on here for the solution for finding it.

And I don't recall ever seeing a message "pull hard up on the stick" either.

Do you mean this message?
I pulled up hard on the 'stick to avoid the bastard... next thing I know, the bloody klaxon's wailing, and I'm in interstellar space surrounded by bug warships

That's the one. I have re-loaded a saved game from when I was docked at Biorle, launched from Biorle, gone to Usle and docked, then returned to Biorle and docked and then I did get the message. It seems odd I have no recollection of seeing it before - it is not easy to miss such a mission screen.

Indeed... the camera thingy ain't so hard to master either.

And even when you miss the clue about a forced msjump, after two jumps between the systems the oxp might start a missjump for you :mrgreen:

About the camara: too far away is not okay, too close is not okay, too far off centre is not accepted. In other words, it must be a nice picture of the planet. Or was it the station, I don't even remember that, find it out.

I've finally completed this mission, at long last. I had to go back twice to get replacement film as the photos weren't good enough. :evil:

In RealTime, I started it on Saturday 28th April, it is now Thursday 17th May. I saved the game 83 times between starting and ending the mission.

In the Ooniverse, I started at 2084064:04:33:58 and ended it on 2084107:02:53:13, so nearly 43 days passed in the Ooniverse.

I started Above Average with 71 kills, and ended it Competent with 144 kills.

I started in a Cobra Mk I with 15,562 ₢; one jump before finally launching for Tionisla for the last time, I upgraded to a Cobra Mk III.

Explorer Club tells me I had visited 7 different systems when I took the mission; I have now visited 26.

In short, that was damn hard work and a long slog!

Hi Eric,

I installed the OXP and dropped in to Tionisla in the middle of a passenger run....and got the invite to the mission.

Call me daft - but I turned it down as I wanted to save it for a bit later after I'd delivered my passenger and bought a bit more equipment. However on returning to Tionisla to try to pick up the mission I don't get offered it on docking. Have tried jumping out of system and back on a couple of times but no joy.....

Do I have to wait a certain time before the mission might be re-offered - or did I 'blow my chance' by turning it down the first time ?

Should I delete from AddOns....restart...then reinstall the OXP and re-start the game again to be able to accept the mission on my next visit to Tionisla ?

Cheers, Colonel Wasabi

Turning the offer down is permanent. Romoving and re-installing won't help. The only thing would be cheeting and edit the save-file :(

Oh silly me........

Editing the save file.....how would I go about doing that ? (Absolutely no interest in cheating my character - but wonder if I can reset a 'trigger' for the mission ?)

I was keen to try out my first mission - and unless I can get back into it - I'll have to start another commander to give it a go :-(
(or wait until I get a bit tougher and try out a bounty mission from 'random hits'....)

There is a nice little mission set at Lerelace quite near to you in G1, for the Taranis Corporation.

I now rewrote that part slightly. After rejection, the mission not immediately stops, but after 30 days you will get a message that another pilot wrote that article for the Tionisla chronicle and you are out. Not a second chance, but at least you will know the mission has definitely ended.
(Will be in a next update)
