Re: Deep Horizon - Adv. Nav. Computer & Emer. Witchspace Ini

Jex- The above said, JeX - There was warning, so characterizing it otherwise is not exactly fair. No biggie though. Maybe I could have placed that bit more prominently. The ANC offers both an equipment item for fuel savings and a general immersion behavior. When a jump is initiated by the player, t...

Re: Deep Horizon - Adv. Nav. Computer & Emer. Witchspace Ini

Although I can see your point this is what the Emergency Witchdrive Initiator is for. :-) I will discuss a toggle setting with Cmd Cheyd for normal and Emergency Jumps. Indeed. It's just very weird to install an equipment OXP and, without any warning whatsoever and even without buying the ANC, "gam...

Re: Deep Horizon - Adv. Nav. Computer & Emer. Witchspace Ini

The ANC offers both an equipment item for fuel savings and a general immersion behavior. When a jump is initiated by the player, the OXP will spawn a navigation guidance frame around a distant star. The player is then reoriented to that star to simulate true interstellar navigation. This took me by...

Re: How I discovered Oolite...

My wife has already complained to her friends that I get home from work and go straight to fiddling with Oolite, then go to bed later than I should. Welcome! I too have found my bedtimes rolling into the wee hours of 2 AM in the morning for the past couple of months. This game simply has SO much to...

Re: [WIP] Duplex Fuel Tank v0.3

Fine if you like it that way but for me this game is all about the journey of getting to that point in the game. And the harder you have to fight, survive and make difficult choices the better... :) Then don't install what is essentially a cheat OXP in the first place. I certainly won't. :wink: Agr...

Re: [WIP] freighttrain

It's really awesome but just makes so little sense with having so many weak spots. Maybe you can come up with an in game explanation for why these types of freighters suddenly became popular? That's not hard.. the same explanation as for IRL freight-trains. Dirt-cheap bulk haulage. For example, sup...

Re: Peaceful skies

It would be really interesting with an OXP where you NEED to get caught in Witchspace by Thargoids in certain areas of the game to explore new stations/races/cargo/missions etc. Say two or three areas per Galaxy. Fight off the 'goids and go have some fun, although it's a one hit experience. Just say...

Re: [WIP] Duplex Fuel Tank v0.3

Price is not really a balancing element, because once the player isn't a beginner anymore, money doesn't really matter. Sooner or later you get into the phase of playing where you've got far more money that you could ever spend. So there's effectively no difference between 7700Cr and 100000Cr. Thus...

Re: Hardware Guide

Welcome aboard, Teschnertron... ... for example Griffs normal mapping ships. My conclusion is: Oolite needs more than 256 MB memory for stuff like that . So I avoid OXPs of this sort. Have you tried the Griff no-shaders shipset? I'll plug it anyway... ideal for low-performance GPUs. Thank you for t...

Re: [WIP] freighttrain

This is probably one of the most interesting yet logically flawed OXPs ship additions I have yet to see :lol: Looking at one just makes it itch in my trigger finger to blow up the middle one and see the rest of the wagons come loose. Oh, and then be spewed with cargo presents :D It's really awesome ...

Re: Hardware Guide

I play on a MacBook 13" mid 2010 with the Nvidia 320M Windows 7 64-bit and have realized that I cannot install any OXPs that use shaders because it will grind the FPS down to 4 everytime I face more than 4 ships. Normal FPS is around 60. It's a bit of a shame seeing as I have the feeling that the gr...

Re: Commodity Markets OXP

Hi Thargoid. I really enjoy the realism of this OXP as it becomes somewhat harder to predict income from trading. And I am all for making this game harder! However, I would simply love if it the OXP consisted of a fewer button presses by joining the market on a single screen so that purchase/selling...

Re: Taxi Galactica v1.0

Absolutely! Speaking as an ex-cabbie, you ride, you pay - or else.. If you're unhappy with the service, don't leave a tip. If you're really that unhappy with the service, you pay, make sure to get a receipt, and take it up with the relevant authorities. But if you exit without paying, that's an off...
