Re: David Braben's Elite: Dangerous

A lot of the video's I see of the alpha Ver. seem to be made by people who never apparently played Elite or Oolite ,("What's this Mass-Lock Stuff?") maybe someone should point them here and say "Hay Guys, here's a E.D. trainer!"

Re: Elite: Dangerous overall rating until now?

That is a good question, I would like to know that too!
would your whole career be just in your "save"?

What will the timeline be , one century after Elite F.F.?
and will it have a rich storyline at all?

Paging Drew Wagar , E.D. is on the other line about a Job!!!

Re: David Braben's Elite: Dangerous

I'm wondering how Elite Dangerous is going to affect Oolite? Will all the great Elites we have here going to jump ship for E.D.? Will the Oolite BB start slowing down and go dark? I finally find something good and it gets replaced? OMG it's Firefly all over again!! :cry: I can.t afford thousands of ...

Re: Joystick recommendation for Windows 7 64-bit

That Cyborg EVO sounds good to me. I've been using a Microsoft sidewinder precision 2 I bought back in 199? but it still works well! But I'm still driving a 1992 Camry that I bought brand new , so you can see that I take care of my toys! :lol: Would be nice to have a separate throttle and a few more...

Re: I have purchased a Long Range Scanner and I was thinking

I agree with Cody, keep it close to the core. I'm treating it like it's two different games, I want to see how far and how good I get in Oolite-Core, then when I get to the point where I think I'm at the end,(10mil.Cr. or 6401 kills) then open the flood gates and start playing Oolite-OXP! :D Plus by...

Re: [REL] Firefly (Serenity)

When I think of all the time and talent you put into that firefly, and all I had to do was download and a few clicks of a mouse, I feel like I stole her from you. :(
But then isn't that what Malcohm Reynolds was known for? :D


P.S. Diz, I thought that would make you grin. :wink:

Re: I have purchased a Long Range Scanner and I was thinking

Cheating in Oolite is like cheating in solitaire , who are you cheating? (answer, yourself.) I have tried to use only eye candy OXPs and optical enhancement OXPs (bad eyesight) and yet when I used Griff's replacement ship-set I inadvertently slowed down my computer making it foolproof to dock at ful...

Hi fellow Commanders: I too have just received the Constrictor job and was wondering if there is a time limit to get there and find it , I am at Xexedi and it will take some time to get there.

Re: Visibility of other ships

I have the same problem with seeing the ships ( I'm also from old Amiga 500 ), so I lowered the screen resolution(in-game options menu) to 600X800 and it helped a little , also my laptop seemed to run it a little faster. But don't use the wide HUD oxp as it cuts out important gauges. I will try the ...
