NPC Equipment Damage 0.2.1 by Ngalo

Does what it says on the tin: allows NPC equipment to get damaged in combat, as much like the core player damage handling as I can manage.

Also damages NPC cargo, because Oolite does both with the same code for the player.

Note on code

OXP equipment which needs to be disabled by script when damaged can push a handler onto the worldScripts.NPC_Equipment_Damage.NPC_equipmentDamagedHandlers array.

Note that such handlers will be called as if they were in the damaged ship's script, not your worldScript.

A simple example handler from my NPC Energy Units OXP:

this.NPC_energy_equipmentDamaged = function(equipment)


if (equipment == "EQ_NPC_NAVAL_ENERGY_UNIT") this.ship.energyRechargeRate /= worldScripts.NPC_Energy_Units.NEU_multiplier;

if (equipment == "EQ_NPC_ENERGY_UNIT") this.ship.energyRechargeRate /= worldScripts.NPC_Energy_Units.EEU_multiplier;
