Orbits...? Orbits.oxp I finally managed to leave Lave and pull up at the last minute. Now: I've never made a habit of dive-bombing into a planet's atmosphere so I've never noticed there are two translucent atmosphere levels. So I thought there was a planet around the planet in the split-second it t...

Well, it's an OXP! I shall find the offending one by a process of clairvoyance. Or elimination. One or t'other!

And it's good to be back.

Just tried it again a few times. No change in the result... but every so often, I get a message from 'Swift' saying how much shit I'm in, and another message saying "he doesn't care". Then kaboom!

If you download HalSis (female voice), it speaks over the Stephen Hawking voice (I'm on a Mac, don't know if it has that feature on the PC version). Turning off the voice leaves the HalSis to talk alone.

Just want to begin by saying this isn't MY artwork. Where it comes from is explained in the next paragraph. Arthur C Clarke wrote a book decades ago called Rendezvous With Rama. The Rama is a cylindrical generational craft that enters the solar system and is explored by humans. As it's an alien tech...

You could paint your ship to look like Gianfranco Zola's junk. Equip it with an SEP. And then just sit right outside the station and shoot everything that comes out. Seeing as nobody expects to see a ship that looks like the twig and berries of GZ, the SEP field keeps you invisible to anyone looking...

Thanks all for genuinely helpful guidance. another_commander: Knocked those questions right out of the box. Thanks, although for those slippery targets it's not so much the scanner zoom as the inability to see the targets out there in the void. Yes, that sounds like a personal problem --- maybe I n...

I just love this idea. An OXP that can sit in your folder for decades and may never be used by you. You may even be in a system with one of the ships in it, but (for example) you were just passing through, using the system to scoop-fuel, and missed the only chance you'd ever get to seeing one of the...

That's not a font! I always thought the point of a font, no matter how stylised, should be readable! EDIT: Let me clarify that before somebody else points out the error of my ways - I'm talking about fonts that make up the alphanumeric letters of a mostly Westernised target audience - I'm not talki...
