The post below is actually posted on the Advanced Nav Comp oxp thread here : http://www.aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.ph ... 58#p263258
But I also wanted to post the text here as it may be relevant to what is going on with FTS
"Following on from another issue which I noted when using Fast Target Selector oxp with Carriers & Carriers with Turrets oxp's (phkb is already aware of this one).
I have also noted a small peculiarity when using Advanced Nav Comp together with Carriers.
The ANC works and gives a fuel saving when working with Carriers (and Carriers with Turrets) oxp, it is just that where it would normally use a countdown of around 30 seconds once aligned with the star with Carriers the countdown is only 10 seconds.
This makes me wonder is the issue with FTS & ANC or is it more likely that the issue lies with Carriers and / or Carriers with Turrets oxp's ?"
To answer the questions in phkb's previous post:
1. Going through the primable equipment there is no listing for FTS.
2. Yes I have checked to ensure that I am in at least a TL5 system (I even hauled to a TL15) but could not find it available for sale
3. Starting a new game ( I had to remove modern start again to test as it was auto adding to new game ship) I was able to find FTS listed via F3.
I am wondering if something is borked on my install (possibly a lookup table for equip). What makes me think this is that last night I was able to find and add lasers ( RimmerAce Quadcooled 'ImpasseResolver') from New Lasers oxp available at a TL10 planet for only 1200cr when they should only be available at TL11 and above for 12,000cr.
Makes me wonder if maybe this has something to do with the change in my setup.
Not so long back I reinstalled everything in my Linux machine (as I wanted to change partitions to give more space to my home partition as my root had around 40gb spare).
Anyhow after moving partitions, reinstalling software and restoring backed up files I found that I still had over 10gb of space on my root drive.
So I decided that rather than install oolite just to my users home directory as I had previously done that I would follow instructions to install to root directory (my idea was to save valuable home space and use spare root instead). I think most of the files still ended up in my user home directory anyway despite the change in install technique - (which I followed the instructions here : http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9570
changing the version to 1.86 )
The above regarding my install change may or may not be relevant but I thought it best to mention in case it is
Is it worth deleting my install which follows the system wide install and re-installing under home folder method as it was originally installed on my machine?
Thanks in advance for any guidance that can be offered and please accept my most humble apologies if I have been inadvertently the cause of my own problems.
