Re: Thought experiment: no currency

well... fuel normally costs only a few credits.
A year's wages to an Imperial slave, perhaps. But to an independent trader a pittance.

Re: Thought experiment: no currency

I remember hoarding gemstones and precious metals in the C=64 version. They did not take up any space in the hold and it was part of my Rock hermit fantasy. A barter system would work in disreputable places, and could be implemented in a scripted fashion easily enough I'd guess. edit: IIRC also trum...

Re: Elite - Hyperradiohead

Heya trucker! I know you're kinda lonely ou'dere in the black, it is really daunting! I've seen Thargoids up close in cold hyperspace and it only makes your blood run colder... But!

Re: Oolite Novellas, 'Status Quo' and 'Mutabilis'...

Re-read your Oolite saga stories. Nice read, though the characters use pretty archaic speach, which would be more effective if only some characters were thus affected. A GalCop elitist villain is expected be overly elloquent, a poor (dangerous) tramptrader girl not so much. After reading SQ I decide...

Installing spyware? :twisted:
Running SETI search in the background, and planet search! E4 will need to find lots of planets to keep as realistic a universe as possible. ;)

Re: David Braben's Elite: Dangerous

Aww Oh well, I'm still hopeful that multiplayer won't be awfull. :D Fear that my AI-honed combat skills won't live up to be as effective vs humans though! Not planning on anything guild-like, simply don't have the time, but I WILL be trying my best to subvert Braben's vision of a Frontier universe. ...

I don't think that should be much of a problem, as long as you mention this clearly in the owners manual. Unless it is to be used as a lone-wolf pirate or rescue ship, but iirc that is not really...

I kept thinking about Star Trekkin' earlier,
