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...

Re: Lore: where do all the asteroids come from?

According to Wiki total mass of inner asteroid belt in our Solar System estimated as 2.8...3.2*10^21 kg (about 4% of Moon mass). Annual steel production in 2019 was 1870 Mtons (1.87*10^12 kg per year). Assuming that 1. Only 1% of asteroid mass can be converted onto useful metal (~ 3*10^19 kg) 2. Fut...

Re: Terminological Exactitude: Hyperspace, Witchspace & Interstellar Space

Just my five kopecks to discussion :-) In real reality we have only one type of space. Difference between intersolar and intrasolar space is only matter of balance between pressure of solar wind and galactic magnetic field. Inside astrosphere (heliosphere in particular case of our Sun) we have hyper...

Re: SW Economy

Thank you, Milo! It is very specific case indeed. Main station has extremely high rate of energy restore so it is practically impossible to destroy it using vanilla lasers/missiles. But space accidents like asteroid impact or Nova explosion can destroy main station. Technically it is easy to add che...

Re: SW Economy

@Cholmondely Thank you for kind reply, sir! I need some time to refresh my memories. Too long period not playing Oolite :( There is issue with PlanetLand - it contains graphics from another authors without clear permissions. So I feel it may be not acceptable to give link in this forum. Private mess...

Re: The All-in-One Guide to OXZ Packaging and Distribution

Well. DarkRay OXZ for example. Unzipping (extracting) this folder will create new folder DarkRay (usual folder without any extensions). It contains three files and one folder: info.plist manifest.plist readme.txt Textures Go into DarkRay folder and select all these items, not DarkRay folder per se! ...

Go INTO unzipped OXZ folder, select ALL content of unzipped OXZ folder and zip ONLY this selected content, NOT root folder! After zipping relocate archive from root folder, rename it and change extension from .zip to .oxz

Re: SW Economy

Is SW Economy compatible with Smugglers? Sorry for delay. I have no enough knowledge to answer you question. Seems it is necessary to adopt additional items to Smugglers as described in Smugglers page, but I hope SW Economy will not break game if you have Smugglers. I think Smugglers will just igno...

Re: SW Economy

Medicines would possibly be the one major export of Mainly agricultural/Mainly industrial economies! They have both the agriculture and the industry to produce complex medicines (if they have the requisite TL). Sounds reasonable. It will explain success of systems with balanced economy.

Re: 60 years ago - Yuri Gagarin's flight

I was too young in this April day 60 years ago to have personal memories - just six and half month old. :D
Space was a part of fun in my life later.
And now I hope to live till first man on Mars.

60 years ago - Yuri Gagarin's flight

I have personal habit to celebrate Yuri's flight at April 11, not 12.
In April 11 he wasn't world hero - just unknown Russian young military pilot selected for dangerous mission.
