Is BPC still on the Installer?
I ran the FSO Installer today just to make sure all the mods I got with it are up to date.  However, when I selected custom I didn't see Blue Planet Complete in the list at all.  I didn't see anything Blue Planet actually.

FYI I used the latest version of the Installer.

Re: Is BPC still on the Installer?
I recall hearing that there's currently an issue with the installer handling HTTP redirects, so yeah, until that's fixed or some workaround is implemented I don't think BPC will be available from the installer.

Well that needs to be fixed ASAP.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

So the Installer is broken period and it's not just an issue with BPC?

It's an issue with the installer, although theoretically it should be fixable by just changing the link used from "http://" to "https://"...

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.
