Release versions

v2.5r29 (2013-11-10)

  • This OXP now requires Cabal Common Library.
  • Proper integration for Oolite v1.77 and newer with the interface screen for base locations.
  • Added check for blackbox + software patch for base locations in the $addInterface() function.
  • Renamed the vertex and fragment shaders.
  • Rewritten $listNames() to use Cabal Common Library for truncating, padding and creating columns.
    • Oolite v1.76.1 and older use the original method of padding rows. Spaces.
    • Oolite v1.77 and newer use Cabal Common Library v1.7 strAdd2Columns() and strAddIndentedText() to create the rows.
  • Removed some dead/unused code.
  • Fixed ghost messages appearing on the player's console. I forgot player.consoleMessage() isn't distance dependant. It obviously isn't, however these minor bugettes happen from time to time. ;)
  • Multiple rescue news implementation.
  • Clean up of code in guiScreenChanged().
  • Changed key combination to show list of base locations to F7, F5.
    • Oolite v1.77 and newer use the interface API when docked.
  • Lowered max cargo space to 10TC to explain extra speed.
  • AI tweaks.
  • New ship to patrol the area around the base.
  • Allow auto dock with the base once you have the black box.
  • Only use one mission variable. Old mission variables will be converted.
  • Changed the operation of the black box tracker.
    • 'n' toggles the ASC tracker on or off.
    • 'b' toggles the holo tracker on or off.
  • jaguar_company_attackers.js now called jaguar_company_ships.js
    • Common code moved here and is hooked in to the ship script when a ship is spawned.
  • Check the Patrol ships, tug, buoy and miner within the code for the base.

v2.4 (2012-12-27)

  • Bug fix for spawning Jaguar Company. Potential to spawn the base at all times if the Galactic Navy wasn't present.
  • Bug fix for checking the safe zone around the base. Wasn't checking to see if it actually existed.
  • Main world script saves the last system ID that was visited for interstellar space.
  • Timer on start up for the worldscripts has been added to allow each worldscript to be loaded in. Stops a potential dependency error happening.
  • Stray commas in the route list arrays removed.
  • Welcome code has been cleaned up.
  • missiontext.plist and descriptions.plist cleaned up.
  • Altered all player consoleMessage's to show messages for the default time limit.
  • Changed all player commsMessage's to consoleMessage.
  • Changed some of the player consoleMessage's back into commsMessage.
  • Only insert news into Snoopers about battle help if more than 10 minutes has passed since the last news item was inserted.
  • If you set $alwaysSpawn to true with OXPConfig the base will be spawned if it doesn't exist.
  • Patrol ships follow the Galactic Navy.
    • If by some freak accident, all of the Galactic Navy is destroyed, the patrol ships will go back to base if it exists. Otherwise they will patrol the witchpoint to planet lane.
  • New reputation level. Shows the location of Jaguar Company Bases in the current galaxy.
    • Re-implementation of the game random number generators for system.pseudoRandomNumber and system.scrambledPseudoRandomNumber, to allow checking of all the systems in the current galaxy. The system versions only gives back a value for the current system.
    • Oolite v1.76.1 and older only show a list of system names. Go to the long range chart then select the status screen (F6, F6, F5). Borrowed some code from Spara's Trophy Collector OXP for this.
    • Oolite v1.77 and newer display the locations on the long range chart. Uses the new object method of mission.markSystem so it won't intefere with other OXPs. (Hopefully)

v2.3 (2012-12-08)

  • Integration with Snoopers OXP if available.
  • Pilot name for patrol, tug and miner ships.
  • Pilot name transfered to escape pod and then used in rescue message on arrival at a station.
  • Use pilot's name if available in attack messages. Otherwise use the displayName.
  • Use pilot's name if available as the Snoopers news source. Otherwise use a random name.
  • Force Snoopers news to be shown at the base.
  • New const in the main script for Snoopers Error Codes.
  • Make sure thargoids/tharglets are ALWAYS seen as hostile.

v2.2 (2012-12-02)

  • Wrong variable in the buoy script.
  • Corrected a logic check in the asteroid script.
  • Optimized the cleanup code in jaguar_company_attackers.js
  • Fewer boulders.

v2.1 (2012-12-02)

  • Thargoids and tharglets always returns true in $isHostile check.
  • There is a safe zone of 30km around the base.
    • NB: The safe zone does not extend to known attackers.
  • Took out some ship script event handlers and AI sendScriptMessage functions from the base, buoy, miner and tug ship scripts that is inserted by $addFriendly.
  • Fixed colour bug with the tracker. Didn't start off red if the target was behind the player.
  • Fixed name error for $performJaguarCompanyAttackTarget in $addFriendly.
  • Fixed sun check error if no sun exists.

v2.0 (2012-11-30)

  • First release out of WIP.
  • Moved route code fully into the main worldscript.
  • New worldscript for attackers code. Remember attackers. Even players who jump system.
    • Friend or Foe checks all ships in scanner range.
    • The first few shots are ignored as "friendly fire". Reputation can be lost!
    • You can remove the hostile mark by going to a new galaxy. This will also remove your reputation.
  • Welcome screen on docking.
  • Check for player helping. Thanks to Wildeblood for pointing out the then invisible world script event shipAttackedOther.
    • There's a 10% chance of being seen in the heat of battle. A kill is always seen and rewarded highly.
    • If the player has enough reputation in combat then the communications buoy will transmit a beacon code of 'J' for the player to follow on the ASC. Wait a couple of minutes before checking, the tug pushing the communications buoy out has to reach the drop off point before the beacon activates.
    • The market for the base will change if the player has enough reputation.
  • The communications buoy will slowly rotate to point towards the patrol ships on release from the tug.
  • Black Box Tracker points to the nearest patrol ship.
    • Uses new visual effects code for Oolite v1.77 and newer, otherwise a simple invisible object hanging above the closest patrol ship that can be tracked with the Advanced Space Compass.
    • Tracker deactivates if the player is close to the patrol ships.
  • If Jaguar Company is forced out of interstellar space, they will all use 1 witchpoint exit even though they are all independent entities and not escorts or part of a group.
  • Position and name of the base is now fixed. Uses system.scrambledPseudoRandomNumber(salt).
    • Conjunction of the witchpoint, planet and sun is checked for so the base doesn't end up in the middle of the planet.
