Well as i rarely trade now (prefer to fight) i am permenantly in a cobra commodore now.. its got a tiny fighting edge over the MK3, but at a cost (cargo) so i feel comfy that its not uber at all. I do wish i could have a better hud though...ideally one with a targetting system that flashes red or so...

Literally five mins ago I took on a galactic navy quest, long fight, but we did well and the navy is around me. Time to go home for tea and medals! At that point, the cat decided to harrass me, and instead of w, i hit tab.. and wiped out half the navy ;) My OH doesnt understand why i have a fit of t...

Thanks guys, ill take another look at the ships, and when im a bit better at everything try tough guys ;) One thing i do wish i could add since it would be balanced (in my opinion) is torpedos.. they could be unguided, slow, horrific to hit anything with but pack a wallop. I can remember playing fre...

I was wondering what your views are on the signifigantly more powerful ships available.. i think they are a great option for people to choose to play (everyone has their own idea of whats good to have and its player choice). But i cant seem to decide wether to install them ;) Having played ...

Yes Sunlover72 it does. Do it! Actually a penetrating Torpedo will take it out too, if you have that OXP. If I feel like being a real git I use a Quirium mine, but only if I get there well ahead of my allies! Hehe i did it once to see what happened, but it made priates to easy since only the frigat...

Re: What do you listen to when playing?

Mostly i listen to my girlfriend saying 'are you playing that damned game again?" :D Sounds like my Wife :( Even my 3 year old daughter has noticed! "Daddy's playing Oo-Ee again!" :lol: We reached a compromise, when shes watching programs on tv that i hate (soaps, x-factor etc) i play oolite ;)

I've played most of the Wing COmmander series. Prophecy was my fave, especially when i got a little ship-switcher util off the net, that allowed you to change the ships in the mission. had some fkoff mass battles w/ Devil Rays etc. I cant remember each individual episode names now..but i remember o...
