This should be compulsory reading; maybe just chop it off at the last post and turn the whole thread into a mega readme f...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

I did consider doing that; i thought it might have been something that had been asked

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

I hope this is the right place to ask, but i would like to know if i can use a couple of Griff's

Griff has lisensed his images that are on the wiki ( "They'rrrrrrrre Great! -- :-S btw :-) ?

Re: Firran?

Thanks! It is the rough version for sure. but i am very happy with all your feedback - it is very encouraging . Yes a bit over enthusiastic with punctuation marks. (lol) Sorry about that; will have to brush up on a few things . Will spell-check it all, a bit better. I will try and make some of those...

Firran?

Hi i have been writing a short story, was originally going to be a cartoon strip, but since i found Oolite, i thought i would try my hand at turning it into an Oolite/Elite story. It is all about my main protagonist 'Firran' - a mechanic, and also mech tech trader. Havn't played the game much so do ...

Re: Carver's Anarchy

I don't know whats coming next; but it keeps on getting better - and i like it - this bit is not in any way slowing what you have already laid out - i would leave it in. You know best of course - and if you think it should be left out, then i think it must; equally, if you decide to reinstate this p...

Like you said, it was, just a thought; i think The Dark Wheel stands on its own:maybe Robert Holdstock intended things that way;

Has anyone written anything about Alex Rider? Maybe we should leave the Dark Wheel alone-its a perfect story:-) ? So is someone going...
