Re: Oolite Wiki

Interesting. As with the debate over counting kills of abandoned ships, I'm not sure that I agree. Sorry! Admittedly, I'm truly familiar with a mere handful of other computer games (Diablo I & II, MacPopulous II & Civilisation III) so I don't have the context to truly judge what a modern ga...

Re: Oolite Wiki

Yup. Love Griff's creations. This also highlights the difference in our views of the game. I don't see a game that should sell itself to a gamer, I see a cleverly disguised programming tool that sells itself to a tinkerer. Like Minecraft in a way. But that's just my opinion. Lucky world, I'm not ca...

Re: Oolite Wiki

For example in _my_opinion_ the inclusion of Griff's beautiful ships to the core was an error, since there goes the motivation to create better looking ships :D. Griff is the best I ever encounter, I will probably never be able to offer the same quality. Was it good for the game ? I think so. I sti...

Eg: Target System Plugins, FPO Lave, FPO Zaonce, Extra Thargoids, Shaky Drive etc., etc.
Since phkb is not much around anymore I could do that, I just need the permissions.

Re: Oolite Wiki

Sorry: I should have written: Personally I see my Ooniverse through the shadows of the introduction on the Oolite.org website: Improving the graphics is great, but does it attract more players to join, I don't think so. a_c is putting this game sideways not forwards. I would include multiple lasers...

Therein lies the problem - everyone has different lists.
You are right, I am sure a lot of players will appreciate a great shadow before the need to press space :lol:

Re: Oolite Wiki

So what would you like to see? Just curious! For starters: We still have some excellent ships from Griff out there, Bug, Gnat or Wolf Mark II for example. There are several laser variants in OXP's, specially Redspear gave it a deeper thought. All of that could be (very) easy implemented to the core...

Re: star trek ships?

I watched some clips on YouTube, featuring Star Trek and Star Wars ships fighting. Obviously it's always in the eye of the author, but it was pretty interesting. :D

Re: Biosphere OXP

My apologies, it is taking longer than expected. I had to add some more textures for the rock-hermit and included spara's textures for the astrofactory. The markets are working fine now, a copy of stranger's medicine is included. After I finished the basic script I will post a beta for you, details ...

Re: Oolite Wiki

So the next release (once again) will focus on graphic improvements. While this is certainly important how about some advancement in game functions as well ? I am pretty sure I am wasting my energy with this post but a wider market, for example, or even the including of some popular OXP's to the cor...

Re: Can't download Kestrel / Falcon OXP

I believe coloring the plating works better than coloring the complete ship. Used an online ai resizer to enlarge the bitmap while keeping certain details, All maps 1024 x 1024 Good job, looks much better than the original textures. Your work will be included in the next release of the OXP. Thank y...

Narcotics

Since the commodity "narcotics" is making me wonder for a while I intend to split it up in 2, probably 3 categories. My first idea would be medications, legal narcotics (tobacco) and illegal narcotics (drugs). Are there any suggestions from the community ?

Apologies: a dearth of active brain-cells led to my confusing BioSphere with SoThis. Goodness!! Your new version sounds superb. Looking very much forwards to trying it out.
