Well my story is a simple one (they usually are) of trying to help the galaxy out. After a fine day of sightseeing and Tianave (spelling?) pulsar and purchasing the wonderful dashboard sticker I left monitoring station and headed to another star system - so far so good. With 33t of computers and an ...

For my 2cr worth: Win 7 is the best OS that Microsoft has released IMO. Reminds me (in terms of satisfaction) of Win 98. Strange, I know. Win Vista has a lot of bad press, but I didn't have much problems with it (however, the better the hardware the better Vista seemed to run - it's kind of flaky on...

Not sure how I feel about medals (in the military sense) to be honest. Always assumed that you were a private citizen going about your business. However, a services to the Ooniverse (like the honours system in the UK) would be interesting e.g. Order of the Elite (for being awesome in combat), Order ...

System Redux

After an absence of 2 or so years I've got back into Oolite. Hurrah. Love all the work that's been done so congrats to all involved. One thing that I'm not sure of is how big a system actually is. Looking at System Redux all the planets seem quite close to each other. Is there anyway of editing the ...

Hmmm

I like your thoughts about the Adder.

Why would a pirate need one
What would his or her reasons be for piloting the adder?

In it's current state I agree with you. It's just cannon fodder. But changing it's role so it's more of a poor man's FDL - now that's a good angle.

@JB - I salute your avatar logo thingy. Brings a tear to my eye seeing the old Elk. :) When I got my PS/1 I did feel the future had arrived and lorded it over my classmates who had Amigas and STs ( I've got a PC! *sigh* I was so naive back then. Um, no, that's no quite true. I still lord it over fel...

@JB Well my PS/1 has the amazing monochrome monitor (displays 64 shades of grey!) A massive 512kb (couldn't play many games - though it did run F29 Retaliator okay). Only teasing about the worst computer ever - it was my very first PC and I did think it was the bees knees when I had it, so one shoul...

My Electron is gathering dust up in the attic. My speccy has died though and has gone to silicon heaven. I used to have an IBM Ps1 (quite possibly one of the worst computers ever), but that was binned ages ago.

Agreed. Like the idea of realistic prices (think I've mentioned this before). Downloaded the heffalump version and thought - yikes! :D Small version for me. Small OXPs are ace (look how much farsun and pirates outside the space lane oxps have added to the Oolite experience) So yeah, small version. T...
