Eearl Court Road, London

going into street view on google maps and earth, you will see this, just outside Earl Court Station:

the nice thing is, you can doubleclick and actually enter it.

and this is what it looks on the inside you can actually walk around in it.

Re: Why Kids can't use computers

i wonder how many of the people here looking down on the average computer user have driver licenses, but can't even replace a timing belt.

Re: Where do pirates come from?

There's still a problem with players being attacked by "Clean" pirates, and then getting a criminal record (and worse, being attacked by Vipers) because they're witnessed by the police firing back in self-defence. As if the real life police would always know (or care) who the real instigator in an ...

Re: Adjustments to roles

Probably showing my ignorance here, but will this automatically include OXP-added ships appropriately too? Probably the blue highlighted roles will actually be called "trader", "hunter", "pirate" and "escort" in the implementation, so OXPs will continue to work and provide ships in the short term t...

Re: Where do pirates come from?

Tramp Pirate Gang: A big freighter or two, escorted by enough fighters to ensure survival on one hand, and additionally generate loot for the freighters to scoop. The freighters are their base, so ideally (but not depicted in the game), the fighters can dock and/or be hangared on the big ships. And ...

Sorry, couldn't resist. Anyway, back on topic...
That's where Little Pirates come from. That would explain Asps and Sidewinders, but not those big Anacondas.

I knew it could be used as a real weapon, you just have to send it near the other ship on a missile. :P

Re: Where do pirates come from?

another thought:

not all pirates would be full-timers. a lot of them would be traders like you and me, jumping on an opportunity every so often.

Re: Where do pirates come from?

i would expect the pirates to come from similar places real world pirates come from. they either operate from systems where the government is unable to prosecute them, or turns a blind eye. that doesn't mean they only operate in poor and anarchistic systems, merely that they stage their raids from t...

Re: Didi you play Elite?

On the other hand, considering what happened to "Starship Troopers"... Starship Troopers was different in so far as it was started as an original, but then it was discovered that the story is so close to the novel that there could be legal ramifications. For that reason the rights were purchased an...
