Re: Ships: original Elite/Oolite vs. Elite: Dangerous

The excuse that the changes have to do with internal space does not really pan out when you consider the fact that they could just have made the hull bigger and there would have been no need to round off the edges. Frontier wanted to maintain the external scale of the ships, yet at the same time ha...

Re: Ships: original Elite/Oolite vs. Elite: Dangerous

Hi Neo The thing is Frontier aim to have the player being able to walk around the inside of the ship and because of that, the internal modelling will effect how the ship looks externally. I do understand what you mean though. For me I always liked the sharp angular lines of the Sidewinder, but in th...

Re: THE DEATH OF OOLITE > ELITE DANGEROUS

Were possible, when someone joins the Frontier Forum for the first time were they have been out of gaming for a long time having previously played one of the original Elites, I will point them to the re-makes. It amazes me just how many people out there don't know about them. :)

Re: What expansion packs would people recommend?

What expansions would people recommend? I gather certain OXPs will conflict with others - I'd presume mission orientated ones do not? What I'm looking for are the bog standard "MUST HAVE" OXPs that are most commonly used by Oolite veterans. Thanks! This is a question that comes up alot isn't it? Ma...

Re: Memorials

I like the idea but one thing though. After Robert Holdstock died, I suggested that should Elite IV ever be created he should have a memorial in the game. It was the only detail about the game I ever got Frontier to admit to before the launch of Elite Dangerous, but it was dependant on getting his f...

Re: Processions idea

Thats a very interesting and touching idea Bugbear. Once again Oolite adds even more humanity into it's content. I cant think of any other game that had randomly generated funeral processions or hen night parties.
