Re: Fun star map

Is it very difficult to change the game maps? Then we really could explore for real! Not difficult technically - you can change system coordinates, names, descriptions etc in planetinfo.plist. Just laborious. Oh my giddy Aunt... I can do this strategically to exaggerate or minimise quirks of the pr...

Re: Best expansion packs - just my two cents

Tangentializing further... Might it be nice if Your Ad Here included more advertisments for other oxps? Even if it were only at the witchpoint buoy (and the solitary installed oxp) then you would have in-game advertisements/hints to other oxps: you'd learn about them as you play; becoming increasing...

Re: Budget alternatives for default Cobra Mark III?

Honourable mention for the Moray (esp. seeing as you've already mentioned the Adder). Cargo capacity of 7TC isn't that much yet lies between the Adder and the Mk I. Speed however is superior to both of them and so you may still make money faster with the Moray than with the Mk I. Key things to consi...

Re: Laser Combat Reimagined OXZ

Some questions Firstly, this is almost entirely my own fault... I tend to write my thoughts as I go - it presents the opportunity for early criticism/feedback which is often useful (even if my integration of such isn't always obvious). Consequently, the first post whilst still representing the 'pro...

Re: Metafiction: Dialogues on the Lore of Xlite

So, what I propose, is: an attempt at establishing consistent lore, rooted in real-life science, but reaching "beyond our current understanding" if necessary in order to maintain IU consistency. So you have alternate fiction threads that you wish to consolidate into one consistent whole representin...

Re: Weapon Laws OXZ

I was able to grab 1.4 from the wiki by looking up recent page changes and then downloading directly from your wiki File page. It works. I'm in Ensoreus and can only buy mining lasers! Thank you. So my Tibetan was just about up to it then. Tashi delek! :) The next issue is why it won't download fro...

Did you remember to dance widdershins around your computer whilst sacrificing your next-door neighbours and uttering chants in Sanskrit in order to appease the AppleMac download daemons?
Damn it! I used Tibetan... I'll have to invite the other neighbours round now :roll:

Yes, Zaonce, indeed. I was appalled.
v1.4 has just been uploaded.

Give that a try and see if it fixes the problem.

Thanks.

Re: Well-aligned multiple lasers

I think the idea I posterd here (under reimagined multiple lasers), whilst far from flawless, should result in the desired effect 9 times out of 10. So an 'invisible' central laser does all the damage whilst the false side lasers (visual effects) get all the credit for doing so. If the side lasers a...

Re: Metafiction: Dialogues on the Lore of Xlite

I think that it might be helpful to distinguish between RL (Real-Life) Science and IU (In-Universe) Science. My interpretation, Commander Redspear, is that, perhaps, you seem to have in mind in your first flow diagram: *RL* Science --> Fiction ...and in your second flow diagram: Game --> Fiction --...
