Re: Oolite and Elite entries on fanlore.org

Thanks for mentioning the RPG, ffutures. Most appreciated. :-) Although nothing is set in stone at the moment, the Elite RPG can cross the boundary between Elite lore and Oolite lore because it's up to the group to decide which flavour of Elite universe they like best. It might be worth mentioning i...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - and other stuff!

FD have a way of doing things that is directed by their management model. Please, what do you mean? Essentially, David Braben is the boss. ED is his baby. I have little doubt that any decisions about ED's development have be approved by him before being released. This means that, if it is indeed th...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - and other stuff!

I've begun to wonder if we'll ever see planetary landing, and even if we do, I fear it may be disappointing! It is difficult to be positive about ED, and my opinion of FD themselves is... hmm, not too good! FD have a way of doing things that is directed by their management model. It might not be th...

Re: What else did we play when Elite was king?

Spectrum Elite was my first foray into the Elite universe. Alongside that were: F-19 Stealth Fighter (fond memories of my friend flying the plane and me doing all the keyboard work. Flipping to reverse target cam and watching the F-19 fly overhead with the hushed call of "WHO IS THE MYSTERY PILOT???...

What have you done with my toys. :cry: I ate them. :twisted: Thanks for the welcome back, guys. :-) I'll probably not post as regularly as I once did, because I'm still juggling lots of things, but this is where the heart always comes back to. ;-) ClymAngus: i think everyone causes fights on the Fr...

Re: Elite Encounters: The Elite Dangerous RPG

Good good. Certainly loving the new look to Oolite. 1.82 is downloading now and will be played soon (tm). In the meantime (attention whore mode engage) if you want to catch up with me and the goings on at Daftworks Towers regarding the RPG, then I'm live streaming ED on Monday nights at 8pm uk time ...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - and other stuff!

My reaction to the new "power play" landscape in Elite dangerous?

I'm off to explore the Horsehead Nebula.

F*** Politics. I bought this game to see pretty things.

Re: Limit Theory will never be finished

Reading that post by Parnell and seeing the number and tone of the replies*, I see the maladaptive cycle of behaviour already beginning to recur. There's something unhealthy about the LT forums. Parnell is apparently a competent coder, and we're told that's what is important to him, but more fundam...

Re: Posting images on the Oolite forum

I did set up an area on my website that could be used to host images for the forum:

Still happy for people to use it as long as it's for the forum.

Re: Lavecon 2015

I'll be there. Both days. Pimping the RPG as usual.

Looking forward to actually being able to enjoy some of the convention instead of being stuck behind a gaming table all weekend (like last year), thanks to some very kind people volunteering to GM some sessions.

Re: (BETA) Station Dock Control OXP

LOVE THIS OXP!

Great idea, and looks like it's very well executed. Great for immersion and something to just sit and watch and let one's imagination run wild.

Well done.

Re: Elite Encounters: The Elite Dangerous RPG

Bump.

Hi guys. Still working on this. No news hasn't necessarily been good news, but in this case it's moderately good. I'm still here, still writing and still testing stuff.

So how have you all been anyway? ;-)

Re: Ooliteers Planet - An Interactive Pinmap

Hm. Apologies - it's been a year since this post (and nearly 2 years since I last visited here - naughty Sel). Looks like Google has completely changed their custom maps. And as of today it's down for "remodelling". So looks like we have no choice but to start ANOTHER map. I've created an open one a...

Wow. I've been away too long. I apologise for that. I'm BACK now, and kicking bottom. Status report: ALPHA WAS RELEASED YESTERDAY!
