colony osb shuttle service with npc not possible

Postby Kheben » Sun Feb 05, 2017 2:17 pm

Hi everyone,

for my colony and connected osb in new dawn, i cannot get my npc to trade between those 2. First i had no clue whatsoever, as the orders worked for my other colonies.
Then i remembered an other issue at that osb: i always have problems with ships warping to osb, then stopping then warping again until empty capacitor. It seems, i sit near to the pole with my colony and the osb.

When ordering npv to trade, they ackknowledge but right after say " orders cleared".

Respective names are "zztopkhebenup" for osb and "zztopkhebendown" for the colony.

Any ideas welcome,

Kheben

The problem is with the parser for the command line. It seems to be reading 'ztop' as a 'stop' command.

If you enter the trade command as follows it may work: I have assigned one of my NPC to the route and did not get the 'clearing orders' response after entering this command

trade between khebendown and khebenup

I will check my NPC pilot tomorrow and see if he is using this trade route.

Supplementary to the above, my NPC pilot reports that he is 'Working a Trade Route'. He is in New Dawn, but has no cargo on board.

Hopefully this means he is on this route. I will check later to see if he is actually picking up any cargo, but the signs are looking good.

It is working now, thanks again, Mooncrest.

Now I just have to fit the prices accordingly so they do the shuttle service ;)

You're welcome, Kheben. We have had problems before with the parser for this command line which made me think this was the problem.
