Re: Starfield and new layers of parallax

Funny thing, I'm trying to do the same thing. So if I can't apply a backgroundPlane to a SpaceEnvironmentType, what can I apply it to? I saw that RPC used this in his Planets Parallax but I have found no documentation on it.

Re: Gimp and BMP Masks

Solved...

When exporting to a BMP in Gimp 2.8, under the Compatibility Options you have to select "Do not write color space information".

Re: Gimp and BMP Masks

Yeah, I'm in Wine on a Mac. I've tried saving the mask in a 1 bit b/w bmp - no dice. My directory info is correct as I'm not getting a load error for the JPG, unless the mask loads first? <Image UNID="&OStarNebula;" bitmap="resources/OStarNebula01.jpg" bitmask="resources/magnitude10.bmp"/> Both the ...

Gimp and BMP Masks

I can't seem to make a compatible BMP Mask that Transcendence will except. I get an error saying that Transcendence can't read the bmp mask file. I've saved the mask in grayscale as well as 1 bit black & white index. No joy. Is there a limit to the file size or anything else I should be aware of?

Now the IRC distraction doesn't kill me so often, but it makes me want to drop an ECM. :P

Re: Broadcasting tombstones to IRC

By tombstones, I meant the accomplishment. This could be a sample message on the IRC: XB-7 - human mail - EI500-Class Freighter Destroyed by the pirate ship Xuanlong in the Groombridge System Played for 1 hour and 1 minute Score: 1,145, Called on Domina 0 Times, No Mods Loaded It looks like version ...

Broadcasting tombstones to IRC

I noticed that the tombstone data is sent to the server when logged in. That's a really cool new feature! Stone Soup, a telnet Rouge, broadcasts their tombstones via IRC. Incidentally, that process generates a lot of social activity in the channel. Considering Transcendence is only a php script away...

Thanks for the info about the Drones mod. I'll axe that for now.

newbie with roms

It's been a while since I've played. I remember being able to activate roms onboard the ship. I thought it was "b" that was used to select the roms. I have three roms on board, one of which I purchased and for the life of me I can't remember how to activate it. Running 1.05 w/ Network, OreScanRom, O...

Radiation Poisoning

I just recently succumbed to radiation poisoning. I couldn't dump everything in my cargo fast enough to figure out what it was before I died. I still don't know what caused it.
