Duuh! Can't you just hire tech to remove it, then install it on your new ship? Of course the work can cost you...

Recommend me OXPs

I'm thinking about playing Oolite once again. I'd like to have some recommendations for OXPs. I know few things what I want and what I'd like. For starters, instead of the all-around Cobra Mk. III, I'd like to start off with cargo hauler. So any OXP out there that changes default ship from Cobra3 to...

Re: Is it time to 'fix' the Anaconda?

I have read through only first page. But I think DaddyHoggy hits end of the nail in here: I know the BCC is modern - but I like to think of the Anaconda as cutting edge (in terms of capacity) for it's time and would fail every modern (in Ooniverse terms) Health and Safety check - tiny cabins - few f...

Re: Didi you play Elite?

Ian Bell actually offers Elites for download in his site . I have played PC version. Traveled through the first galaxy, iron assed my Cobra with Military Lasers fore & aft, jumped to next galaxy, quit playing it soon after. Spent considerable amount of time with Frontier. Gave test runs for Elite Pl...

Re: Hammer's Slammers

Nice find Matti, thank-you! Although, I do love a book that has both the words "Complete" and "Volume 1" on the cover... The Complete Hammer's Slammers is what you could expect: every story of the Hammer's Slammers in very thick books. The Complete serie consist of three volumes. First volume inclu...

Re: Miss Wing Commander? ...

So let's start at the beginning. Why did space combat games fall away from the mainstream? Magaha said the games lost touch with what gamers want to play."I want to be Luke Skywalker flying an X-Wing and taking down the Death Star, not a guy micromanaging an array of sensors and flight controls.

Re: Have you ever gone on a rampage though your Ooniverse?

I voted same as the majority here. Once I was offender when I left Coreolis without unloading scooped slaves first. I loaded save and sold the slaves. I think that is my worst offense in Oolite ever.

Re: Wargame discussion

Battletech is of course a classic and it grows with you - but would I start with it... probably not. I started with that! Actually BattleTech is fair for beginners: Introductory Box Set costs less than Warhammer equivalents and comes with 24-26 'Mech models. Becouse WYSIWYG isn't requirement, those...

Re: Wargame discussion

Wargaming looks like fun. I guess it would be similar to Age of Empires Wargaming, as it is meant on this topic, are those games that are played by turns with game miniature models (or counters) on the table, map or gameboard. It is not all clear to me whether or not Chess and Battleship qualify as...

Re: Wargame discussion

We played a lot of CityTech - people stop laughing at a 30 jump capable (2/3 movement) mech with an AC10 when it's just blown your head off at close quarters - I GM'd with proper LOS rules - so the players had LOS and Fog-of-war on their own maps and I kept track of all the pieces on smaller printe...
