The download link for Shipset Compatibility has been fixed (thanks cim!), so that should now work, although again, if you're using updated ship packs (post-1.80) then you probably don't need it.

Could I trouble you for your Mac specs, just for reference?
Late 2012 Mac Mini, Intel core and graphics card, 4gb of RAM, Mojave 10.14.6.

I tested it out on a Windows machine and did not get the same error, so it is probably a Mac issue rather than a network problem.

Addendum:

It seems that the version number change for Display Current Course worked. Thank you!

Version 1.9 still isn't working for me, unfortunately.

Not errors as such, but shouldn't Ambience Collection (Ambience), BlOomberg Markets (Mechanics) and Vector (Missions) be updated to depend on Library (Miscellaneous), rather than Hyperradio/OXPConfig/CCL? And what happens to the Hyperradio Musicpacks?

With Vector, I believe part of the reason the author (Svengali) was doing all the new releases of Library and GNN was so that Vector could be subsequently updated. Maybe not the primary reason, but certainly a major one. So, intention is there on that one.

With Norby's "Ambience Collection", CCL/OXPConfig would likely only be required by one of the included packs, not because of the meta-pack itself. The OXP's in question would need to be updated, and then the requirements could be dropped.

With BlOomberg Markets, though, this would require code changes (although not many). However, given that it's not actually broken at the moment, there's probably not a lot of motivation to push changes out.

Fleurgy (if I may so call you),

I've just noticed that in your initial post in this thread you said
No errors found in Extra Thargoids, but it has a tendency to report them when errors occur in other OXZs. Can anyone explain?
I think you have in mind error messages in the log about ships wanting to spawn escorts that they cannot spawn (because they themselves are escorts, or something like that). I'm not sure whether the problem here is in my code or in that of other Thargoid-y (not the user, the aliens) OXPs that my OXP enlists. I suppose I must have thought that the latter was the case, for I saw these errors ages ago and did not try to fix them. Still, I'll try to look into the matter.
