Re: About that constrictor...

I finally found the hints on screen seven. Last session I followed it's trail with my... 'heavier duty drive'. And my for and aft military lasers say I'm ready for him!

Re: About that constrictor...

A competent 347. I was approached about the job, but have heard as much else from the Navy as I have seen the constrictor itself. Which isn't anything :P

About that constrictor...

I'm after the Constrictor - again. I got it as Hans Olo, but at the moment I'm cruising around as Hans Olo II. My trouble is I don't remember how. I made it to Xeer, taking the time to get the money for my fore and aft Military Lasers, and have neither heard not seen anything of the constrictor. Aft...

Re: Complete newb with some questions

Test version or not, ship's library is a great little OXP; basically an in-game manual. Personally I also quite like the Navy OXPs. To have an actual navy is pretty cool, as is having fleet vs fleet battles against the Thargoids.

Re: How to fly an Iron-Assed Adder

The Adder is an underestimated ship once it's got injectors, upgraded shields, and at least a beam laser. If only it had more laser mounts!

Re: Missiles

Also, even if they have injectors or ecm, some ships are real chickens when it comes to missiles. I've scared off interceptors with a plain ol' missile, then tore out of there before they came back and got me back in mass-lock.

Re: Dumb A I 's

Agreed. Experience is a very important factor here, I think. I'd rather take an Asp with a competent commander than a Adder with a Dangerous one.

Distances

Is there an OXP that tells you how close an object is on your compass? I think it would be very useful to be able to tell wether it is faster to get to a station or the Sun to refuel. I was thinking it could tell you somewhere on the interface or get a message every time you toggle the Advanced Spac...

If someone makes this OXP, I will definitely get it.

Re: Passenger Ship

It is indeed! I have spent a decent amount of time in one. It is a little cumbersome, however. I would love something small, maybe even as small as a 10 ton hold, but also fast and powerful ~10T hold, small, fast, powerful... maybe you're looking for a Fer-de-lance? Hmm. The problem with the Fer-de...
