You could install this OXP. :)
Yes I could. :D But his .OXP limits the maximum values of pitch/roll/yaw. :( I did not intend to limit the maximum values (and thus make the ship less maneuverable), but to icrease the damping (=the amount of time you have to press a direction key until you reach the maximum values of pitch/roll/yaw). This would ease aiming, because the movement of the crosshair would start more slowly, but not limit the maneuverability of the ship. The player still could reach the defined maximum values of pitch/roll/yaw by keeping his finger on the proper direction key. :wink:

Yes. Install this OXP and read the documentation within it. It tells you what to do if you want to tweak the values. :D
"max_flight_pitch / -_roll _yaw" affects the damping only indirect. As far as I can see, after pressing a direction key it always takes 0.5 seconds to come from zero to the defined maximum value regardless of what you have defined as maximum value. What I had in mind was to double the the amount of time you have to press a direction key until you reach the maximum values of pitch/roll/yaw for a easier aiming instead of bisecting the maximum values. :idea: Unfortunately I have absolutely no idea how to accomplish that. :(

Best regards

Nor have I. Sounds like we need a "Precision steering" option in the 'Game Options' that does just that. :)

Since you're using 1.77, precise keyboard steering is built-in - just hold Ctrl while turning.

Diziet Sma: Yeah, but I don't know, what exactly is wrong with this parsing and how I should change it.

Post by Diziet Sma » Wed Jan 23, 2013 9:04 am

Ok.. this is very strange. The relevant section is:

Code: Select all

	//
	//	Dragon.OXP
	"dragon-an-player" =
	{
	//	name = "Dragon AN";		Original value for reference
	//	max_flight_pitch = 1;		Original value for reference
	//	max_flight_roll  = 2;		Original value for reference
	//
		name = "Dragon AN-KB"; 		// so you know it is installed
		max_flight_pitch = 0.4;		// Affects ^ V and < and > keys
		max_flight_roll  = 1.0;		// Affects <- and -> keys
	}
	//
Line 152 is "dragon-an-player" =

It looks essentially no different than Line 140, which reads "adck_cobra3-player" = yet parses with no problems.

Edit: Never mind.. I've spotted the problem.

Here's some earlier entries:

Code: Select all

	"morayMED-player" =
	{
	//	name = "Moray Medical Boat";	Original value for reference
	//	max_flight_pitch = 1.5;		Original value for reference
	//	max_flight_roll  = 2.5;		Original value for reference
	//
		name = "Moray Medical Boat (KB)"; // so you know it is installed
		max_flight_pitch = 0.4;		// Affects ^ V and < and > keys
		max_flight_roll  = 1.0;		// Affects <- and -> keys
	};   <----- Dizzy: Note Here
	"python-player" =
	{
	//	name = "Python";		Original value for reference
	//	max_flight_pitch = 0.8;		Original value for reference
	//	max_flight_roll  = 2;		Original value for reference
	//
		name = "Python (KB)";		// so you know it is installed
		max_flight_pitch = 0.4;		// Affects ^ V and < and > keys
		max_flight_roll  = 1.0;		// Affects <- and -> keys
	};   <----- Dizzy: And Here
Here's the entries for OXP ships:

Code: Select all

	// *** OXP ships ***
	//
	"adck_cobra3-player" =
	{
	//	name = "Cobra Mark III";	Original value for reference
	//	max_flight_pitch = 1;		Original value for reference
	//	max_flight_roll  = 2;		Original value for reference
	//
		name = "Cobra adck Mark III-KB"; // so you know it is installed
		max_flight_pitch = 0.4;		// Affects ^ V and < and > keys
		max_flight_roll  = 1.0;		// Affects <- and -> keys
	}   <----- Dizzy: Note Here
	//
	//	Dragon.OXP
	"dragon-an-player" =
	{
	//	name = "Dragon AN";		Original value for reference
	//	max_flight_pitch = 1;		Original value for reference
	//	max_flight_roll  = 2;		Original value for reference
	//
		name = "Dragon AN-KB"; 		// so you know it is installed
		max_flight_pitch = 0.4;		// Affects ^ V and < and > keys
		max_flight_roll  = 1.0;		// Affects <- and -> keys
	}   <----- Dizzy: And Here
Every single entry for the OXP ships is missing a closing ; after the final closing bracket }

The final 5 ships all need a ; added.

I've copied it from original KeyboardCobra OXP. Yes, I confirm.

It looks essentially no different than Line 140, which reads "adck_cobra3-player" = yet parses with no problems.
That suggests that the entry above, line 149 or so, has } rather than };. So 152 is expected to close an entry, but instead opens a new one.

See my edited post above.. there are 5 spots that need fixing.
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

Since you're using 1.77, precise keyboard steering is built-in - just hold Ctrl while turning.
This is awesome! Thanks. What would be really great is an option to switch the sense of the CTRL key (I'd rather have to hold it down for a faster roll and not have to hold down ctrl for dog fights), or some way to toggle the modes so that holding down the key isn't needed at all.

Is there any way to tune the damp amount? Maybe an options slider....?

A joystick isn't really an option for me, can one really dogfight the harder opponents with just the keyboard?

There's a hidden setting for it. No in-game slider, yet, nor any way to reverse the sense.

Yes, definitely. It just takes practice, but then there's plenty of that to get on the way to Elite rank.

The precision key isn't that much use in a close-in dogfight, but it can be useful for picking off ships at range before or after.

Yes. You need to edit the file .GNUstepDefaults, found inside <OoliteInstallDir>/oolite.app/GNUstep/Defaults and add this line:

Code: Select all

"flight-arrow-key-precision-factor" = 0.33;
The 0.33 above is used as an example. The precision factor can be anything between 0.05 and 1.0 and the default value is 0.5.
