Coo! Megapost! Ok, graveyard layout. How about 3 types of generic monument? Maybe 50 of each type initially in the graveyard, then that leaves enough space for custom jobbies without pushing the object numbers up too high. That, plus a coriolis station (or maybe a custom station) and the six perimit...

In my meandering ramblings about ELite and control systems, I posited some time ago that the ships in original Elite have a sophisticated computer control system (kinda like fly-by-wire) that takes all the dogwork out of the real-physics flight. The computer handles the acceleration and deceleration...

Ah Vetitician parking meters...I remember them well. I was but a kitten when I saw the first of these lovely, wondrous things. Many years have passed since my last visit, but the parking meters are still clear to my mind's eye even now. The lesser-striped yellow Altor City model is especially worthy...

Well, simple it down a bit, maybe...just the station and some dead ships...

Could be a nice opportunity to design some older ships for the graveyard, though.

What does the Asp Mk I look like, for example... :)

I've always assumed (especially since the dawning of Frontier) that the Elite controls were relativity based. There is real-space movement, but your controls when in combat or whatever control your attitude and speed relative to any nearby bodies. Hence the space bar and slash key (or whatever your ...

Tionisla Orbital Graveyard

Could this be included in Oolite? It's mentioned in The Dark Wheel, and in the manual, I believe, and would be a fairly interesting place to visit. I've imagined as follows: A small station in Tionisla orbit (maybe coriolis) in the centre of a circle of dead starships. It looks like a miniature vers...
