Apologies for lurking more than talking. My poor excuse is Life(tm). @Lestradae: I hope you've already got my PM :) Considering I haven't been about for months (life again) it's most gratifying that my .oxp's spark any interest at all these days - esp as most don't work that well with 1.70. What do ...

@ Kaks:

My thanks to you.

My .oxp's are probably renowned for their sloppy coding & half finished state (many worse).

While I'm glad to say I'm back, my habbits are unlikey to change - all help will be kindly accepted.

Hi Kaks, PM in your in-box :) I'm not so sure I know how the AI works either! :lol: Trouble is I have much-updated (and working) versions of the AI on my HDD among much other stuff that is as yet unreleased. (it's going to take me ages to work out which version is which & where I left stuff) It ...

Thanks for the kind replies :) Yes, I sort-of ground to a halt (LIFE tm) no real reason - didn't realise it had been so long. My A3000 was completed & working well (great for playing Oolite) - sadly its mobo 'popped' & I've had trouble finding another. :roll: Hmmm, I bet many (most?) of my ....

Long time, no see...

Hello all, I don't know how many here remember me these days - I've been unintentionally away from Oolite (and making the universe's most unreliable .oxp's) for quite a few months. Not sure how that happened. :? Well, I'm hoping to become rather more active again & hopefully finish / fix some .o...

I totally forgot about this. sorry. How are you doing with the orb missiles? I haven't done anything with them for quite a while. Hi, All my Oolite projects have been on hold while I've been tinkering with that 'modded A3000'... So no progress I'm afraid... I'll get back to it soon: Most of the Orb...
