Re: A new Aussie flag

I quite like the Northern Territory flag. http://www.flagsonline.net/austimages/a13_large.gif Generally though I can't see the point of changing flags or even having them at all. I view things as they are, without regard to place or person; my country is the world http://www.goodreads.com/author/quo...

Re: Screenshots

Thanks for the comments. I'll put some screenshots later. There had never been any problem placing remote objects had there? I'd experimented with objects several light hours away (where the sun is invisible due to distance) and there were no problems at all. But there's not much point doing that of...

Re: Screenshots

I'm pretty sure that Farsun does not work with Oolite 1.80 (there are alternatives, but they do more than simply adjust the sun distance, I think). OK. I've added a number of Kuiper Belt Objects at strategic stars in all galaxies. These do not have nav. beacons and are reached by aligning either th...

Re: Screenshots

Is farsun OXP still available? I've got Oolite 1.80 running on OS-X 10.10 and but my version of farsun doesn't have any effect (on Zaonce). The wiki page won't open and it's not listed in the OXP list. The casino transferred across OK though.

That is lovely - was there a typo at about the micron level (pm twice)? Thanks for sharing :)

The cargo is, as one could expect, computer <-> booze & furs. Narcotics are pretty good, and if you avoid the main drag the Old Ooze stays settled until nearing the station. Even then, their Vipers aren't too enthusiastic if you're carrying less than 100t, and with increasing laser accuracy they're...

There is only a random variation of one level. Once every 7 game days all the available equipment drops one level I've been travelling between Altaar…TL8 & Ditere…TL10 (an isolated pair) in galaxy 3, docking at the TL10 station at least every day. I'm assuming that the blue bit of the following dat...

thank you for that information, which I'll investigate re. use of seeds
..the superhub is fine as written, however, I was just curious whether it was working as intended, and it is, so that's OK

Galaxy 1 sounds fine to me, too. Was there an attenpt to estimate Earth's position relative to the Elite's galaxies at some stage (hence "Sol" galaxy)? Personally, I have never been in any sector, only in galaxies I have no idea which stars are in which sector either. Orrere just looked closest to L...

HERETIC that I am, when engaging in OXP missions that add stations, I experimentally edit the commodities market plist to insanely elevate slightly alter the price for Thatgons. This is not cheating because I can't get the prices to vary very much, and because I'm not usually scooping anything duri...

with SystemRedux installed the planets are different; they're probably different without sysR but I've never really checked - I'd previously checked the suns' colours :)

The game generates its characteristic names from the initial seed, I glean, so perhaps it could be persuaded to generate names for each galaxy, or sector. At present Lave is in galaxy 1, sector 2 (presumably). The NavySectorCommandStation is at Orrere (for sector 2). A file surrounded by a fruit-cak...
