Topic: What is the 'average' workable FPS?
Replies: 15
Views: 7669

I'm running a fairly decent system (Quad Core 2.4 ghz, 8800 GTS, 2gb memory) and I still get stuttering on my system. Will vary between 49-55 fps dropping to a staggering 4fps every 25 secs or so. However, I do have most of the OXPs installed, so I shouldn't grumble really.

Cheers!

Like this idea a lot - continues with the HHGTG theme that was in original elite.

With regards to trading I'd be tempted by gems and platinum in addition to the good old furs/computers trade. Buy gems when under 20cr and sell when above. Platinum buy when less than 70, sell when above. Made some profit. It's not great, but it works over time.

Just to add my 2.0 cr worth. I think this could be a great idea if, as discussed previously, it isn't seen as a complete alternative to trading (after all, that's partly what Elite is all about). However, I do like the idea of another career path being available (even if does mean whoring yourself a...

Great OXP so far - simple, but effective. Many thanks.

@ Captain H

Absolutely - Oolite still gives that shiver up the spine of "what's out there?". Even X3 can't compare, even though it's technologically a better game. I can't claim to understand it, but I prefer to fire up Oolite (and pray it doesn't crash lol) that load up X3.

Heh, heh.

No, I want to replace the sun because I just think it's too close to the planet. Just wanted to add a little bit of realism (though not to much and certainly not full blown newtonian physics ho ho ho).

Unfortunately my programming skills are zero. However, how do I access the Javascript to change the position of the sun - just to make it a bit further away from the planet?

Reduction

Hey all - a quick query... I'm currently playing Oolite V. 1.70 on Win Vista (running like a dream so far). Absolutely fantastic as always, but can anybody tell me how to reduce the size of the sun, or make it further away from the planet? I've tried searching the forums, but cannot find a solution....

Ah, the age old Elite vs Frontier. Both have memories, but Elite was the superior one really. Another thing that bugged me in Frontier was the lack of Aliens.

That bothered me.

Still does.

Oh, and let's not go down the route of First Encounters...

I'm having a problem with 1.69 as well. After taking out the troublesome OXPs the game loads fine. However, when I try to hyperspace to a new system the game just freezes. Any idea why? Thanks

Removed all OXPs and hyperspace works fine - just need to find out which OXP is being offensive...

Question about Oolite (as always!)

Hey, haven't visited the message boards for a while - real life intruding etc. etc. Anyway - my question(s) - excuse my laziness, by the way, for not searching the bulletin boards (I know it's not forum etiquette - but I think the Oolite board is above and beyond all other forums - creep creep). Whe...

Like the idea of Cobra MkIV a lot! The model is ace and branding it as the Cobra MkIV would add 'progression' to the game.

Can't wait for this OXP to be finished. Keep up the fantastic work.

Cheers

Looks like a good model - reminds me a lot of the ships you'd see on the Old Asimov Foundation books. Awesome work.

First played Elite back in 85 on the good old Elk and have been hooked ever since.
