Re: Right on, Commander...

Congratulations, commander!
I got my elite at a similar time and it's a great feeling after a couple of years of play.
My final adversary was called "Eagle of Grief III" and the bugger broke my beer holder :D

Re: [POLL] When did you last play Oolite?

I tend to play most days as I find it a good wind down from a stressy day at work. I also enjoy "doing a couple of planets" while I'm waiting for the dinner to cook in the evenings.
Tonight I'm have an extra hour or so as we're watching the tv :)

Re: gamesvaes on network attached folder

Thanks for all your help with this, especially the advice about using the SymLinks. I've now got a symLink to the shared folder working perfectly from the laptop- after I remembered to run cmd as administrator. I did the desktop using symlink creator (once again run as admin), as mentioned in the li...

gamesaves on network attached folder

Hi chaps. I'd be grateful for a bit of help regarding the oolite gamesave. To put you in the picture: I play oolite on a laptop and a desktop and share a gamesave between the two. My bt router has a usb port that I've currently got a pen drive plugged in to which allows me to swap my oolite gamesave...

Strictly come dancing appreciation thread

I owe a great big thank you to the creators of strictly come dancing.... I love my mrs (she's been my dream girl for decades and my best friend) however anything that can keep her occupied for 3 hours while I enjoy "man time" is genius! I've no idea who the people are in the show and my last experie...

Cheers Gimbal Locke & wolfwood - Currently I'm chucking handfuls of tin foil out of the window as an ECM and have the mrs armed with a peashooter for missiles however I'm planning on working on a cobra body kit - Bit of a pain in the arse parking due to the width, but handy for loading tons of cargo...

Re: In car Elite

Cheers smivs & Daddyhoggy. :D Just make sure you avoid the temptation to play while driving! RL(tm) 'Press Space' moments are best avoided :wink: . Good point! :D It is for stationary use only so sitting in the work car park is fine but belting down a country lane is probably best avoided - tractors...

I've gone for riscos as it's quick to boot & shut down,but mainly as I've wanted to have an acorn os in my dream car since i was in primary school! Luckil...

Re: David Braben's Elite: Dangerous

Useless wings aside, I quite like the idea of these. Has anyone here played X2 before? There was a series of missions where you had to take passengers on a sight seeing trip and gained extra money by making it exciting (i/e getting attacked by pirates and surviving). By having a ship thats specifica...

Re: {UPDATED RELEASE}-Illegal Goods Tweak v1.7.3(30/5/12)

Thanks for the help, Commander Gav. I did find it in the end by using a bit of luck - being a bit dim it didn't even occur to me to use the hermit locator however I'll bear that in mind for next time :oops: I did manage to release some slaves and I'm using the same oolite and oxp as you - Perhaps it...

Hi Capt. Murphy. Thanks for writing and maintaing this oxp - its one of my favourites and I've been enjoying freeing the slaves and meeting up with the relatives, despite their visits to my ship ;) I've been given the mission to find the slaver base however I'm having real trouble locating it. Do yo...

Re: Didi you play Elite?

When I was a little boy (around 10) my dad worked for heathrow airport and was involved in the development of CCTV and flight information boards (the old flapboards). These were all controlled with a BBC B (via some very clever programmers) and he was allowed to take the development BBC B home every...

Re: Tab Picture.

When I open a tab on most websites they have a small logo of the site in the tab section next to their name. It would be cool if the BB had a logo pic also. How problematic would that be? I think a favicon for both the forum and the wiki would be an excellent idea. I like to have a quick launch bar...
