Re: Deposed problem

It's been a while but I do remember I had issues getting that meeting to fire. It's listed as complete in my save but I can't remember what I did to get past that point. I do seem to remember fiddling with something, either in the OXP or my Save.

Re: 2 Uber or not 2 Uber

The OXP I was referring to was Aquatics, also by Thargoid. That was back in 1.76.

Re: 2 Uber or not 2 Uber

There's an OXP that lets you buy a couple of combat drones. They (IMO) got damaged too easily and cost too much to replace so I made them immortal. Because I really hate ECM hardened missiles I made a Point Defence Laser OXP to shoot missiles, it wasn't very effective. For a while I had it shoot all...

Re: Trading goods other than by hauling them

Forcing the player to leave the planet literally propels the gameplay forward. It makes the player take risks, explore his surroundings and learn how to fly and fight. Long ago my friend got a pirated copy of Federation of Free Traders, but without the instructions he couldn't even leave the startin...

Re: Should Oolite have a financial system?

Now that I think of it, a debt at game start would explain how the player got that shiny Cobra... Because I get that it's TRADITION, but it makes no sense in-universe. It's been a long time since I read the manuals but I believe Jameson gets his Cobra (and his aspirations to roam the galaxy) from h...

I thought according to game lore Vipers didn't have hyperdrives. If that's the case then it doesn't seem like a smart move. I'm imagining a squad of Vipers hanging around the station asking strangers if they're headed for home. :lol:

Re: Docking == Crashing?

Fast dock. I think it's Shift C. I don't think that ever fails and there's no point in watching the process once you've seen it.

Re: Dead is Dead

No offense but I can't understand why you'd need a enforced Iron Man mode. Just be honest. If you die, you die. If you're going to cheat, you're only lying to yourself.

Re: helpful advice for new Jamesons from a one week old

Before you try to fight anything: you need witch fuel burners at least. a better laser, ECM, and upgraded shields are almost as essential. I'd disagree here. You have to pick your fights when you're a shiny new commander, but you can win a few of them. Missiles are a wildcard in early fights, but n...

Re: Passenger missions approach.

I tend to run with a hold containing gems, gold and platinum. I always, always buy it cheap from the main stations, con stores, rock hermits and anywhere else I find it for a below average price. Then I sell it on anywhere where the buying price is good. I do that too. Problem is I'm now hauling 1....

Re: WonderWorm

Did anyone make it to earn this sum on his own to be ready to buy the Wonderworm? Without cheating! Please be true ! You should be able to make around 1000CR a trip on a standard Cobra, depending on the market obviously. I've made more than 1.5M just trading, no cheats. It helps if you just make tr...

Re: Shipyard

... how often would it make sense to change the shipyard contents? I'd think that cheaper, lower-end ships would have a faster turnover than top-end expensive ships. As for how often though... hmm, I'd have to ponder on that. As I was closing in on the 1.2M required to buy a Supercobra I found 2 in...

Re: Possible Native Mission Bug?

It's been a while but since the only way out of the mission is to Gal-Jump, the game waits until you have one before springing the mission on you. So you need to fly around with a galactic drive equipped for the mission to trigger. If you used it immediately, you skipped the trigger. IIRC.
