Re: A change of plans

So now 1.76 is released. Congratulations to those who made it possible! And to those who will enjoy it :). And a full 31 beam salute for the Supreme Grand Admiral, who is probably now loading up his Fer de Lance to retire to an unknown planet with a pleasant climate and attentive natives. Best wishe...

Re: Screenshots

I'd have to agree ... while it is possible to be "in a foment", generally it's used as a verb, e.g. "to foment unrest". In a situation like that, I'd use "foment" rather than saying "to ferment unrest", which sounds weird – probably because "ferment", when used as a verb, is more commonly associate...

Re: A change of plans

Dear Jens, Much like our Master and Commander, you have a done an outstanding job, above and beyond the call of duty. Oolite 1.76 will be a great game, and a fitting legacy to your work and Giles' work before you. I do hope you will lurk and provide informed witty comments from time to time and that...

Re: Comparative size chart of Oolite Ships.

On the other hand, it is conceivable that a ship capable of moving a lot more cargo than the Space Shuttle (35 tonnes vs. 26 tonnes to LEO and <4 tonnes to geostationary orbit) , to any orbit and even to another star system, might be quite a bit larger, up to 130 meters or so... You need a place to ...

Re: [WIP] Wormhole drones!

This is the first way to break the 7ly barrier that I really like. It doesn't bend the rules or really upsets any game balance, it just makes the jumps convenient. 8)

Sounds pretty, though a grille will not have much use in a place with no air flow (i.e. space).

Best wishes,

Isn't there some script combination that can see if the player got hit and then figure out who shot first (or has the larger bounty)?

The asteroids are stunningly good :D. A huge credit to what can be done with fairly small textures and maps.

I also wonder how large the star map background pictures are. They are now GIF, but I wonder at possibilities to reduce colour depth. After all, you want this to load really quickly and they actually use very few colours. Can we assume everyone looking for OOlite has a browser that deals with PNG? B...

I quite like the mk 1-3 variations, but I share the misgivings already raised against the + configuration. I also wonder if the way the grooves are in the texture really work at the nosecone end. But well done so far! I look forward to seeing this with a normal map and some lighting effects :). (Gri...
