Re: Tales from the spacelanes ... How I cam eto the Oonivers

Guess again, Yah-Ta-Hey. Disembodied was also not quite on the right track. And as for flattery, DaddyHoggy, no, I don't think so. ;-) But I'm sure y'all will guess where I am from if I mention Wolf359? Korell, does that ring a bell? But these are tales for another day. Hmm, seeing "Wolf359" on an ...

Re: A change of plans

Taking this game to a 1.76 stable release will be a huge achievement. I may not come to the forums too often any more but I still love this game, and can vividly remember downloading and playing Oolite for the first time. Here was a great space game that ran on my low-powered linux machine! It has n...

Re: An amazing photo

A great image, and none too shabby for a hand-held 1/15th sec shot.

Re: How many people use the Fuel Tank OXP?

It's been interesting reading how people use or don't use missiles and fuel tanks. I'm with most people when it comes to missiles - I hardly need to use them, other than to force powerful opponents into spending energy to ECM them. On fuel tanks though, I'm always draining them! I get so impatient w...

Re: Dredger OXP

1) There is no 'D' for the dredgers. It was only present in some test versions of the old oxp that only added the ship near the station. 2) It was deliberately designed that the player has to find the dredgers on-sight. 3 of the four models are already visible at the start of the mission. At the po...

How many people use the Fuel Tank OXP?

I've always wondered how popular this is, since I'm finding it increasingly unbalancing. I can remember when I first started Oolite, this was one of the most useful OXPs I had installed (still is) and I was constantly buying them. Then, as my combat skills increased, I realised that I didn't need to...

Re: Dredger OXP

I used to use the Dredgers OXP extensively, and I never remember seeing a 'D' on the Adv Compass. As you say you have to just follow the heading of the salvaged ship and plot the course. Thing get tasty when those groups of pirates fight you though. I remember always having to find the salvaged ship...

Re: Deep, deep, deeeeeeeep space travel.

Wow! Heading into deepest space... Wonder if any contra-bases could be positioned, faaaar out in the opposite direction of the local star and target planet base as per usual. There's a whole deep game in there somewhere... Intriguing post Lave. I know it's not quite what you mean, but are you aware...

Re: How can I fix this?

Since installing version 1.74.2 (on Linux) I've had the same crash-to-desktop hangs twice now - both in the middle of missions. The game has never crashed for me until this version. I know that isn't enough for anyone to go on, but just to let the OP know that he isn't the only one.Ah well, at least...

Re: Struggling with a game play issue.

Ah, thats cool. I did not know about the range thing. Cannot wait for my new joystick to arrive, trying to aim with keys at long range is not that easy :( Which is the main reason I switched to mouse control. Now that the dead zone has been removed from the mouse, incredibly precise aiming at long ...

Re: [RELEASE] : Vampire MkV ~ Spectre

You know, I haven't been to this forum in a long time (the last post I remember was some thread in Outworld regarding claims for Jesus :? ) but I just had to log in to say how great this looks. I'm glad you've ditched the 'winged' design, as it was one of the things that didn't sit well with me in m...
