Re: Hermit

Would it make sense to give it its own wiki page? And is there any other Roolite fiction that we should know about? Any other Roolite fiction? AFAIK, no. Commander Vasig has a number of travel notes in belletristic format, reflecting aspects of gamer experience, mostly exploration of various OXPs. ...

Re: Oolite essay: game lore, features and mechanics

“Turrets are almost useless” was biased declaration, agree. Changing my mind seeing several episodes of criminal trying to attack Navy frigate. In less than one second poor bastard was pulverized. So turrets are impressively effective weapons against NPCs. But not against human player. Killing rogue...

Oolite essay: brief conclusion

This text was written before release Oolite 1.90, so some parts of text are obsolete. Since Oolite 1.90, for example, game engine provides support for planet texture maps with reflections and pseudo-terrain. No more custom textures looking like matte balls. You can create cool planets with reflectiv...

Real astronomy in Oolite?

So, the Oolite engine allows you to create spacious, unique solar systems. You can finally explore the charts step by step. You can even make full-fledged alternative charts with alternative topology and alternative system passports. But the essence of Ooniversum remains unchanged: it is a densely p...

Oolite as exploration game

How Ooniversum can be interesting for a researcher? The endless game world, in which the gamer is free to choose the path, sounds great, but nowadays it is already slightly worn out. This journey began in boundless space – yes, you guessed it, it was with the legendary Elite. Let the wireframe graph...

Oolite game mechanics

Populator Let's start with the fact that Ooniversum is a 3D world. Now this is not surprising, but in the era of arcade platformers, Elite, even with its wireframe graphics, looked incredibly cool. This degree of freedom, where the gamer does not follow a pre-designed single path, actually poses a d...

Oolite game world

I will briefly talk about the game world – mainly in order to help describe what to expect from the game and what not to expect from it. First of all, let me remind you once again that Oolite is a game made by Elite veterans for Elite veterans. This is a conscious decision of the game developers: Oo...

Re: Stranger's Roolite Essay on Economics & Trade

Needs some human edition indeed :D
Russian word "однотонный" for example means not only
1. monophonic
2. monochromatic
but also
3. having 1 ton capacity
It is my part of work to clarify such issues. Still hope to find time to do this job.

Re: SW Economy

I completely agree with cim's arguments. All 2048 systems must have enough internal sources to provide primary needs like food, drinking water and oxygen. I have my own study of Oolite economy model. It was summarized in document Oolite - economy, statistics, demography (PDF format, on Russion). Lin...
