I checked, and it was STAGE1...... And the other planet he flies to ...is it the one that looks like a volcanic moon, or the one that looks like the ice planet Hoth??!!? When it is STAGE1, its the very first value that the variable uses after installation of assassins. The ship will be heading for ...

Hypothetically: if I wanted to alter my oolite-save file to get the mission to start again, what would I change or remove? Hypothetically speaking, of course. (cough) All missions start by setting: "mission_assassins" = "assassins_STAGE X ". X is just a number. all subsequent numbers within the mis...

OK. I've hung around this system for hours. Flown back and forth to all the other planets away from the main station. And nothing.

I have a stupid question. Before I ask it: I must be somewhat retarded. OK: I've had this OXP for months. The first mission was to ensure that Be Soin enjoys a "happy retirement" in his vintage Adder. So I saw him leave the station. Fly around on his little cruise. Then he went back again. And that ...

Elite / Oolite type game on the iPod Touch and iPhone.

It's called Galaxy On Fire, there's a part 2 either out now or out soon, and I gave the original game a quick run through. Because it was free in the App Store. http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn76/Jackpot070707/GalaxyOnFire/001start.jpg It is the future. You are Keith T Maxwell. You fly a mean s...

Just dowloaded, hopped to a system with some Rock Hermits, let's have a look --

I am definitely in dire need of more RAM in my iMac! With just 1GB of RAM, all the extras just slow the program down. It was bad with a Shipyard in the area. Now I'm flying something out of Restaurant At The End Of The Universe (moves like a fish, steers like a cow)!

This one's bugging me. I remember the scene, I'm certain I do. I want to say "LifeForce", but that was the one with Patrick Stewart in it, and the bad stuff came from Mars so THAT wasn't it (besides, those were space vampires, not something cast out). We have some clues. One of them is a space shutt...

My other favourite though you might think it a little 'uber' is one of the ships from the Star Wars Ships OXP, the B wing. Again a reasonable cargo hold, LOTS of missile turrets, very fast and quite zippy too. Again, a reskin is nice as the one it comes with is quite basic. I like this one on mine:...

The glowy alloy should pop up in game every now and again when a ship explodes (ha, yes it does look like burnt toast ;) ), the wreckage though is a bit harder to spot, a piece doesn't always get generated by the explosion and when it does appear, it only has a short lifespan before it explodes its...
