Topic: Why Oolite is better than Eve

MMORPGs pull in weird people, and EVE is no different.

I just chuckle over the ensuing dramas from a distance. And get my kicks out of running blockades in Rancer, Nalvula and Egghelende... I know, I know, it'll get boring eventually, but then there's always Oolite to return to :D

By the way, even Civilisation is not on the list. Tsk!

I am missing Colossal Cave as well- first text based adventure, and the first game I know that started a meme ("xyzzy")
And, why, indeed, WoW? Why not Everquest or Guild Wars?

needs to reference :) crash testing nuts or how is it called what those birds do when they drop nuts in order to open them once they hit the road? Ohhh...and please, only nuts, no q-bombs! They won't explode, but cause a horrible headache when landing at the wrong place, and I know my luck! Screet ...

C64 for me, and I think it was "85. I had an illegal copy first, played until the pooter could not read the tape anymore. Second tape ditto. The third tape I actually borrowed from the library- no idea why they had it on the shelves, I never found another game there... must have been because of the ...

(Sorry to repeat myself and others.) There are no multiple lasers for player ships, and there won't be laser coolers. Live with it. And, as our current Grand Admiral likes to put it: For games that are different from Oolite, see: games that are not Oolite. (Read: if you want a bunch of un-Oolitey f...

Yeah, maybe I should start playing Oolite in german for the cool words... Now thats funny! I am german and I prefer the english version, as usual. I hate german translations, and for tech stuff german words often appear very funny or strange to me. (...) On the other hand, this seems to be some sor...

No trumbles. Not even fedos. Meh. Who needs a space sim without trumbles or fedos.

Looks interesting, nice way to discover a thing or two about the mechanics of space flight. But it does not really seem to be a game so I don't think we will have to worry for Oolite just yet ;-)

The Cobra3-section shows, by the way, that any big 'windows' on the ship are fake. Oh well, I'll probably not be able to show windows anyway. Although I like how the Acorn- and Berihn- versions contradict each other. Gives me a lot of freedom to, in the words of the Great Prophet, "set the record s...

i think Jannah Berihn did a lot of work on this and she posted about it all the time on the ebbs. Do a search there and you should find something. Never heard of that name... but I wonder why, now- pictures like these make me happy, this is precisely what I was looking for :mrgreen: http://www.drea...

Ooh, looks nice! Sketch making time :D

Not a lot of space for walking it seems, at first glance- but I believe the ship is supposed to be about 100 ft from wingtip to wingtip, isn't it?

Deck plans?

Hi all, quick question: Does anybody here know if there exist deck plans for Elite ships? (most notably, of course, the Cobra MK3) I have been browsing around for pictures, especially in fcw-format (for campaign cartographer), but so far, found nothing. (Reason for asking: I "need" a deck plan for a...
