Hello Commander! Let me add my welcomes to those of Star Gazer. As regards combat, don't worry about it too much. A beam laser is enough to rack up more than a few kills, so there's no need to rush off and splurge on a military model just yet. It just sounds as if the pirates you've engaged to date ...

I'm also not much of a gamer. "Wasted"away a couple of my years playing Elite on the C64. Then I got a PC and discovered adventure games. Text adventures at first and later on point & click. After the demise of the adventure genre all I had left was Civilization and Civ 2. I could never get into Ci...

Well, I do tend to waste a lot of time play a lot of games... although as I get older I suppose my tastes become more refined. To be honest of late -- chess, etc. aside -- I've not played anything except Oolite. After two decades and more of waiting for a proper successor to the original, there's a ...

The faintly appalling thing is, this isn't even a joke any more. I think someone has by now translated the thing into textese. Can the l33t version be far behind?

Googling the names, 1888 looks OK... but 1889 is a non-posting member on soooo many forums (fora? forae? dang) all over the world it's either one of the planet's foremost polyglot polymaths, or a spambot.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Admittedly I don't know if that's ever worked as a defence in a court of law... But I like the idea of scanner distortion, especially as an indicator of damage/wear and tear. That kind of direct sensory feedback is always cool. Or it could be caused by so...

Being very much a belated (and frankly unexpected -- not that I don't appreciate it!) addition to the Union, I find I don't miss the thrill of the chase, the ripple of light along the killing edge, the hiss of razor steel as it sweeps across an exposed neck, the hot scarlet pulse of arterial blood j...

Good job you're not running the police IRL, otherwise you'd have people arrested simply for walking through a market containing a stall selling counterfeit goods! It's all part and parcel of GalCop's attempt to stamp out these dens of iniquity. As the unofficial GalCop motto says, you can't make an...

And after all: I still assume there is an underlying problem in Oolite, and this problem should be sorted out. That's why I put this thread in "Testing and Bug reports", and not elsewhere. Ah... an excellent point. I tend to forget that other people aren't all in a state of delighted surprise when ...
