A few questions

I'm new to oolite, above average (13 kills till competent) and I have a couple of questions. In the Galactic chart, what is the significance of the "Lanes" i.e. Lane 1 and Lane 2? What is the white circle with the green dot positioned to the left of and exactly in between the roll and pitch bars? Tw...

Re: What else did we play when Elite was king?

That bridges an era for me (as a child looks at it). Both the Amstrad CPC464 and the Amiga 500 were light years apart back then. I got really right into Elite on the Amiga so i guess that's the one, although I did play in on the CPC. Cannon Fodder, Stealth Fighter, FA18 Interceptor, A-train, The Cha...

Re: Hidden items in the ship outfitting screen

I just installed everything I could see in the OXZ list in-game that didn't look like it would give me a massive advantage. Don't have a clue what half of them are. If they sounded good and weren't incompatible, I'll have some of that. Why not? In time my gameplay will change but what's the point in...

Re: Hidden items in the ship outfitting screen

As a new player I'd love this. It would let me see all the stuff I could get, if only I could, and give me more drive to achieve the necessary conditions, hence giving me more compulsion to play the game.

Re: Her Imperial Majesty's Space Navy

GalCop and HIMSN resources are spread thinly trying to repel the Thargoids from Co-Operative space. So even if the player did encounter the Thargoids they kind of have their hands full to be able to do anything about it. HIMSN will engage and protect civilians if they encounter Thargoids attacking ...

Re: Her Imperial Majesty's Space Navy

Although this is doable it kind of reminds me of a feature in the Galactic Navy OXP. We are trying to move away from this somewhat, but there will be rare random encounters of battles between the HIMSN and the Thargoids. I haven't actually tried the Gal Navy OXP. It sounds a little heavy handed to ...

Re: Her Imperial Majesty's Space Navy

I've just ploughed through all 49 pages and this looks awesome. I'll definitely be installing the Alpha. I have a couple of minor suggestions and I don't know if they'd be possible (or even desirable) but here goes: A good while back in the thread someone (I forget who now) mentioned that we as lice...

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Hello, a new Jameson here. I played Elite when I was knee-high, both in wireframe and the (at the time) stunning Amiga filled polygon versions. This is everything that was and something so much more. Well done and thank you to the devs and the modders. What a game!
