Re: star trek ships?

is anyone looking at attempting the Uss Orville? looks like a tough one to do. Funny show, though!

Re: Introduce Yourself.

After 2 and a half years, i thought i'd pop my head round the door and say "Hey you guyz!" Yes, its been that long since i posted. So i'm re-introducing myself. Hi, Zark Montor, pleased to eat you, i mean pleased to make meat out of you, oh bollocks! nice to see things are running so well here, Elit...

Re: The Oolite chatroom

just read back a couple of pages and heard mention of Braben and Bell. Interesting... but had you not thought about Oolite and the appearance of Elite Dangerous? After Frontier tanked, and i mean TANKED! (I remember it on the Amiga and wish i hadn't) the trail went decidedly cold on the Elite Fronti...

Re: A plea for cloaking to affect missiles . .

Perhaps rather than just an OXP for this, you could look at a key sequencer or hot key for all sorts of things, such as cargo scooping, ship towing etc etc, there are some tasks that require activation of various systems that would be made easier by way of hot key sequencing.

Oolite messenger?

Now i present this Oodea (idea) as more of a Oodea-let, which may or may not amount to anything. It may be impractical, may cause slow down, not have enough interest or re hash the whole multiplayer argument, that really isn't an argument, as m/p cannot be done. but anyway. I pitched this in another...

Re: A plea for cloaking to affect missiles . .

Under normal conditions, if you fire whilst cloaking, bang, you de cloak. someone locks a missile onto you, it would lock onto a heat signature or electronic system ping (i'm trying to over elaborate on purpose) so cloaking might not solve the issue of getting hit etc. i think you would have to have...

Re: Hijacking a ship

Thirdly, Transferring a ship to a different system. Pilot Hire? Cheap option comes with rookie out of Lave Academy, no insurance, might be an idea to send these newbies to stable systems (but not TL15! Thargoid problems at every TL15 i've been to so far!)

Re: Hijacking a ship

I actually had this as a back up idea to something i posted in regards Hyperspace Hangar thread, with regards losing a ship to war requistion or having a pilot fly your ship to a destination, but that ship never getting there... i did a whole hand wavium thing... but yes PHKB, i put these ideas out ...

Re: Hijacking a ship

I like this idea. and some of the angles and tangents that spring forth. ID masking, chop shops, as well as espionage, pre concept models, yup, that'll do it! it all comes up for grabs. sort of thing i had in mind for my story mode idea...

Re: Career mode/Story Mode

just to add a few things, I was thinking about adding the Thargoid situation as a major news item, "Invasion of the Thargon Destruction Fleet" with a whole theme and sudden creation of what we call necessary technology, but would have once been vapour-ware or rumours from disgruntled ex employees.

Career mode/Story Mode

I had an idea a while back whilst reading a few of these forum posts, about working with someone as an ideas person, using my corrupt mind to help create a good OXP and maybe gleaning a bit of oxp creation knowledge from whomever i end up interacting with. I haven't even looked at programming anythi...

Re: [RELEASE] Hyperspace Hangar OXP

Hi Ramen, Love the OXP. Hate to do this to you, but having checked every entry on this thread, i thought i'd point out something. I have got 4 ships in the Hangar, Contractor, Wolf 1 and 2 and a Cobb 3 xt and i retained my original Mk3 for sentimental value. I did, for a while, rotate ships as per r...

Re: Equipment purchasing screen

Thanks Norby, i'll give those a whirl. My save game has been editted, due to a bug that appeared thru escort contracts, which gave me about 27 trillion credits (the number ended in "NaN" credits) for 1 mission and 4 kills. so i had to edit out the 27trillion to leave me with about 80k, so it may nee...

Re: Ideas for Bounty Hunting OXP

I think voice chat would grate, so i think a small message packet system would be preferable. also, judging by the multiplayer oolite debate/thread, it would soon drop off if you are experiencing trollage, even more so with some little ferengi spouting bilge at you! Trust me, i`ve been on CoD in mul...
