Re: Oolite 2.0 or II

Your first suggestion is effectively an end-boss and the others are all tetris like (ever increasing difficulty) if I'm understanding them correctly. Not quite. XS is, yes. But for the others, the idea is that they are introduced when the player has the ability/equipment to cope with them, so that ...

Re: Harder to play than the original Elite

Ok, question. I am finding Oolite way harder to play than the original Elite. I even loaded up the original to make sure I wasn't dreaming this. For instance, you start of on Diso (Democracy), after buying what I can I fly to Leesti (Corporate State). Now this is where it gets interesting, in the o...

Re: Oolite 2.0 or II

Terris is an example of a game that I wouldn't like oolite to emulate. They're very different games of course but I'm thinking in particular with regards to difficulty. Suppose there are three different game states with regards to difficulty: 1. Easy with little or no practice needed beyond familia...

Re: Joysticks

i went with the Thrustmaster T16000 and TWCS throttle... I bought that, it works well... in fact, the throttle slides back a little bit from the max position on its own weight... Any chance of some key-bindings for the Thrustmaster (to add in to the Joysticks: Guide to Setting Up wiki page)? Or for...

Re: Recovering "Lost" OXPs

... we will have to do something different with that Antient Aliens Amber Moon Chronicles page. I've got some other ideas for a title that will be unique enough to avoid any possible licensing issues going forward. That was never intended to be the title it would be released under and frankly it is...

Three of you: don't forget Pongo!

Re: Screenshots

Personally speaking, I think the rear view is the more impressive...

But the size of the dock seems too large for what is supposedly a carrier. Presumably the rear section contains engines+fuel and dock and the hangers!

Did you ever get an answer for this?

Awesome rendition of the original Bell & Braben game Elite. Have been playing this game since 1984. Also all other Elite games released. Right now i play Elite Dangerous on the VR headset, nothing like flying through space. Found this version from Nexus Forums. People was commenting on various ...

Re: Thargoid robot related q's

It appears to this dumb pilot that there is scooping-related code in the carrier .js file, but not in the collector .js file. It seems you are beginning to see the matrix and start understanding. Truly impressive! Not long until you can tweak it to your needs... My dear Hiran, every attempt at twea...

Re: A Solar Systems OXP - @Frame

Looking through the entrails of this .oxp: it has comets!

But it needs System Redux & Far Sun to work. There seems to be no working link to download System Redux.

Does anybody have a link - or a copy?
