Oolite version 1.76.1 has been released. It is a bug-fix update to the stable version 1.76 and replaces it as the latest official release of the game. The fixes in this version are as follows: * Fixed potential bug loading player with no ... [More] mission_variables dictionary. * player.ship.launch() can now also be used within the shipWillDockWithStation and the shipDockedWithStation handler without side effects. * Ships that have a specific commodity defined as cargo, no longer get their bounty reduced to 10% when the pilot ejects. * The scoop icon now correctly shows a full cargo hold when special cargo is transported. * Fixed a problem with the shipyard screen when a ship with chance=1 defined non-installed optional equipment. * Don't disgorge and revive dead ships from wormholes. * 32-bit GL contexts are now strongly preferred on SDL systems, with 16-bit fallback. * Fixed weapon facing not resetting to forward view when launching from station. * takeSnapShot() is excluded from the timelimiter. * Added code to prevent overcorrection pitch and roll with low frame rates. Should lower the change of ships jumping between two headings, without proceeding. * weapon_range and weapon_energy keys in the turret subentity declaration now work as intended. Values are maximised at 7500 and 100 respectively. * Buggy consoleMessage() behaviour when called from JS debug console has been rectified. * JS debug console macros are saved when Oolite exits to desktop in all platforms, as originally intended. * Regression fix: in the log, the searchPaths.dumpAll is shown once every time searchPaths change (strict/unrestricted mode). * No more negative ship distances, see http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=11785 * Fix for guiScreenWillChange for system data screen not firing when double clicking on systems. * Fixed crash with malformed gui declarations inside hud plists. * Fixed timer related crashes. * The Windows Oolite executable is now large address aware, allowing for more than 2GB of memory to be allocated to the game. * Fix for bug where standard subentities defined after any turret subentity would exhibit turret behaviour. * Savefiles with wrong passengers and/or passengers berths data are now handled a bit better. * Fix bug where equipment depending on currently damaged equipment would be silently removed from the player's ship on game load. * Target system memory expansion doesn't try to restore locks on cloaked ships anymore. * Fixed bug with resetting of passenger contracts on ship change. * Fixed Nav Array not showing distance and time information when target system was selected by using the Find Planet method. * Frame Callbacks now transfer the correct time difference when timeAccelerationFactor is active. * The available_to_all key is now also respected by JS methods that add equipment. * Improved the docking approach when arriving from the backside of a station. * Fixed fuel scoops sound loop issue, discussed in http://www.aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=11611 * Fixed intermittent crash on missile removal.
