Acorn Electron for me. Spent ages looking for a sun (which didn't exist) and being very disappointed when I reached my first ROC and didn't get the constrictor mission. I had followed the Micro User guide to the letter as well :( A while after got the Speccy version, which had various missions and s...

Sometimes the smallest OXPs can have as big an impact as the awesome ship models.

Keep it up.

Like 2a as well.

Don't tend to use e-bombs, but there have been one or two times where they've come in mighty handy...

Wouldn't like to see them removed altogether though.

However, in Texas it's perfectly fine! :lol:

(For our American cousins replace Texas with Norfolk).

Big Dr Who fan.

Except Paul McGann, who was crap. Sylvestor McCoy was far better, and he was a bit rubbish too. Colin Baker should have had more time to develop his take on the character.

Anyway, back to the topic. :D

Don't know for certain if it does mess up savegames (if I'm wrong, or if I started that rumour just now then many apologies). I'm probably referring to...ahh. Just scanned the post about editing savegames with your original RS posts. Oops. I see the words 'edit' and 'savegame' and go into panic mode...

I must say, that Oolite on my Vista machine has been much more stable than on my old XP one. I've not had one crash (slowdowns yes, but not crashes).

Just thought I'd defend Vista a bit, poor thing. :D

Oooo, that is good news. I think the idea of having something to aim for post Elite (e.g. that uber ship you always wanted heh heh) is a great idea and I will look forward to installing diet RS. (So long as it won't mess my save game up lol!)

Good to see some constructive criticism (hurrah).

Now what about RS-lite?

Looking good - love the idea of a biodome. Perhaps an installation that could be placed near a sun?

Like the idea as a concept - realistic prices etc - fair play (I can't OXP at all, so I feel slightly bad at criticising, but hey ho :D) Don't like the idea of having all the ships in one fell swoop. I like to take ships in and out as I please really - especially as some ships have some interesting ...

Of course, if you are going to re-name one of the planets as Earth (sacrilege to some) then you'll have to change the planet text to 'Mostly Harmless'. Lol

Lovely. Keep it up!

Like the idea a couple of posts up about varying the texture. Hope it can be done.

Always add more RAM. I currently have 2gb and even then Oolite is still asking for more, like a pesky Oliver. (I do have most OXPs installed though, so it's my fault my frame rate jumps around a lot). Always play Oolite in full screen mode (as I only found out how to do so a few weeks ago. Ahem). I ...
