Release: Harder Hermits

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!

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!

Is it compatible with PHKB's Hermitage OXP?

Good question. I think I managed to fail to notice the existence of that OXP. So: I don't know. I'll investigate and report back here, but it might take new a few days.
