Release: Harder Hermits

Post by UK_Eliter »

I have uploaded to the Oolite repository my little 'Harder Hermits' expansion pack. It toughens up some rock hermits - or, toughens them further (but not stupidly so) if some other pack already makes them harder. Indeed it is best used in conjunction with Spara's 'Spicy Hermits'. My expansion pack adds a surprise or too. There might be some bugs; I was not able to test much.

There was a bit of discussion of the project in this thread.

I suppose I should add a nice picture here of a hermit in, er, action . .

If you would like to post a description here, I can happily set up a wiki page for you to edit away on to your heart's content!
Sir Cody of El Viejo (Bart), Portcullis Pursuivant of the Galactic College of Heralds has finally extirpated the blot on our family eschutcheon!
Cousin Digby, Duke of the Dismal Deserts, has granted him Officership of the Order of the Opulent Ooniverse.

Thanks, Cholmondely! That is good of you! Here is some description that will do for now.

REQUIREMENTS

• This expansion pack requires Oolite version *1.82* or above.

PURPOSE

This expansion packs toughens up some rock hermits - or, toughens them *further* if some other pack already makes them harder.


RECOMMENDED OTHER EXPANSION PACKS

• This expansion pack is compatible with, and is best used with, 'Spicy Hermits' by Spara.

• Also, to add more types of defence ships for the hermits, install, in addition to HarderHermits, these OXPs of mine:
- Super Sidewinder
- Fer-de-Lance 3G

Wiki page is here: http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Harder_Hermits_OXP

If you need help bunging in a screen shot, bug me!

A tad more description would be nice! You also need to decide what the gubbins at the bottom should be - I guessed Orange and level 3 and sprinkled around '?'s for the rest!

Thank you very much!

I have learned how to edit the page.

I think that the 'orange' / 'level 3' for the difficult rating (or whatever we should call it) is appropriate. However: that the colour rating correlates with the level does not seem to me to be made entirely clear. Also, I am afraid that the gauges - cpu etc. - read ambiguously: does an almost fully blue bar represent a low value (actually, it does) or a high one?

Would probably make more sense if we were lobstoids or felines!
