Re: The new Oolite

Well I did the best I could, got alot of stuff ironed out and figured out the oxz biz. Still no witchspace effect, but you know what it does do, it shows a still square picture of the lightning blue web pattern, that hovers there in the center of the screen when I launch from stations and when I com...

Re: The new Oolite

Nah, but I haven't had time to really mess around with the new version yet. After I finish building this lego Snowspeeder maybe I dunno. But really my laptop is crap.

The new Oolite

Hi fellow humanoids. It's been awhile. I just wanted to say a couple things. I've been playing oolite a long time now, messing with oxps, trying different strategies, messing with the text in some of the files, changing the cargo, or speed, or some other ship attribute, blindly but with success... I...

Hiring crew oxp

Forgive me if there's already a topic for this, there are alot of threads... I think an oxp for hiring crew of a few specified types who would each add attributes to your shipwould be fun, ie. something like but not limited to: Engineer, (of various calibers and wage expectations) increase speed and...

Re: Ascention

I see the point if it was an unfinished project. I had the experience that it was there when I first started playing, and it had an aura of mystique about it that was exiting. Going there felt like it did coming out here to Hollywood, like you weren't sure what was going to happen and you're pretty ...

Re: BGS - The BackgroundSet

:) Thanks. So, I defragmented, cleaned up, rebooted, updated, and reinstalled oolite. In all the dozens of Oolite installs I have tried on Linux and on Windows and in hundreds of hours of gameplay (I can stop anytime I want to) I have never ever been able to get a desktop icon that works and I have ...

Re: BGS - The BackgroundSet

Hi again all you extremely helpful and intuitive people. Loboids, Felines, whatever. Let me preface this by saying I'm old fashioned, I grew up on a farm, and if there was a bright center to the ooniverse... you get the idea. I won't quote Robert Frost. The thing is my computer savvy bro here just f...

Re: Ascention

why precious why why? You can't just destroy a planet, it'd take more firepower than I've ever.... some copyright thing probably huh? I wish I still had old oolite... maybe I do on a zip drive somewhere..

Re: BGS - The BackgroundSet

Well thanks so much. Yes, I had thought of shaders, or at least I know they are enabled, and I see from the instructions I was right in trying a '1' in the specials menu, but it hasn't worked yet... that's alright though. ok im back from testing again, I get a rectangular solid block of sith electri...

Re: BGS - The BackgroundSet

Hello hello, how long will I be a noob. No one can tell but nothing lasts forever. I have finally figured out how to get to oxp configure through the game menu, but still very ignorant of the various functions. I have never gotten the new jump effects to work. I am now playing Oolite on a windows 7 ...

activating mouse control

I finally have a mouse, but the "configure joystick" option is not available. The game doesn't recognize the mouse. Anyone want to help me out with a tip?

Re: The Oolite chatroom

So... if there are thousands of days.. how long is a galactic year? Anyone know? I'm curious. Has anyone ever had Navy bonds mature?
