Re: Imperial courier

There are some entries, but looks like they are not related to the IC. (Gotta check which extensions cause the trouble). Extension is recognized by oolite.

Re: Imperial courier

I planned to make the IC my next ship. Downloaded the OXP quite some time ago, put it in my AddOns folder, but never seen an IC and never have been able to buy one. What's up?

Re: Upgrade Cobra Mk3 to which ship?

Thanks - funny how I could miss the Cobra XT. It's not linked on the Cobra page as a variant - strange, because it is by far the one that I like best, and has a very reasonable price. Very similar to the Boomslang. The Boomslang is essentially 115k more expensive but has better recharge rate (4,5 to...

Upgrade Cobra Mk3 to which ship?

Hi, I recently re-discovered Oolite - I think I played a very early version a long time ago, and of course I made elite status in the original Elite on a C64, a long long time ago :-) Anyway, I've been checking out a lot of OXPs and really feel like a child in a candystore. At the moment I love the ...

Re: UPS-Courier

Yes. The point is: If I save the game and reload, there shouldn't be a difference to continuing directly. But in this case there is, if I continue then I don't get a message (and I have no clue if the ship moved on or not), if I save/load then I get a message that the ship has moved to a different s...

Re: UPS-Courier

recapturing containers usually involves a Boa . Jump to the system mentioned following the QUiCKEST route (multiple short jumps are much faster then 1 long jump) , NOT the shortest route. Once there, go witchpoint - planet - station route, that route gives the best chance to find it. I finished the...

Re: UPS-Courier

Hi, I found a minor bug. I got my first mission to recapture some UPS containers from a ship (don't remember whether Python or Boa). So I go to the system, and get a message that the ship went on to a different planet. I followed, but couldn't find the ship. Went planet, landed (thought I might get ...

Have to say, Deposed is my favorite Mission OXP so its worth the wait! I've just started Deposed. I'm curious - will I know somehow once I've finished the missions? The readme says the plot is left open to allow a sequel. Other questions (regarding Constrictor/Thargoid Plans and Ionics missions, ro...

Howdy, In the beginning both "unknown"-counters are set to 7, the rest to 0. For every successfull delivery the "fulfilled"-counter is increased by 1, for every missed deadline the "expired"-counter is increased by 1. In both cases the "unknown"-counter is decreased by 1. (That's what you observed b...

This link doesn't seem to work, and I can't find the HUD on oosat2 - where is it?

I was browsing my current save file and stumbled upon this reputation entry. I guess that stores the number of successful cargo and passenger contracts. Now the thing is that I've tried the advise that contracts get better once I've completed a few of them, so I ran 4-5 cargo contracts, all successf...

Messages sticking in the middle of the screen

I think you've summed it up perfectly, the screen message sticking really is irritating, but my appreciation of how good Oolite is overides that, and I'm willing to put up with it because sOoner or later, a wizard will fix it. The strange thing is that sometimes messages disappear just as they shou...

Re: SPOILER WARNING!

Here are answers to some of your questions: 6) Dive or climb at max rate while entering witchspace, will have you exit witchspace in the wrong place - interplanetary space, where you will meet Thargoids - I recommend that you at least install some Thargoid related expansions and the Behemoth expans...

Newbie questions

Hi, I discovered OOLite a week ago and I immediately became addicted (again - I used to play Elite a lot on my C64 20 years ago). Congratulations for a very good game, which kinda makes me feel younger than I really am :-) But I've got a ton of (typical newbie) questions - which could be phrased in ...
