You see this is what I like about this game. If you want to fingerprint your oolite experience then all ya got to do is ask the bod who made it and do it yourself. The player learns something, and the maker gets to pass on some knowledge which is indeed, in it's own way quite cool. There is very lit...

I subscribe to the one mission at a time approch too although I do allow myself many fun little side tracks along the way as long as it doesn't take me too far away from my destination. Made a lot of cash doing long way round transporting metals and gems, enough to buy my boa and kit it out with all...

I still think a station round a moon round a gas giant would be cool. -.-

OK here's a suggestion (or an idea) moons. If you really really really want to do something realistic yet still playable maybe take your ideas from what we're seeing in the universe. Maybe making some of the stop off points like Ganymede or Callisto. So that way you could have your accurate solar sy...

http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Piracy Scroll down to the entry on Renegade Pirates. ! Screw that for a game of canasta. It's one thing to be blown up by a pirate, but getting blown up by a pirate flying a ship that's camper than a brownie jamboree? http://wiki.alioth.net/images/f/fb/Pirate_FdL.PN...

I've added an entry to planetinfo.plist and set the radius to 400000, i.e. 400000 * 10 / 1000 = 4000km. Took me hours to get there due to the mass lock feature:) I've made two screenshots, but the forum does not allow me to upload them, does it? When the altitude indicator starts to drop you see ha...

Which oxp are we talking here? For long way round you get a pack of "renegades" popping up in your destination system.

Turned tail, ran and cut them to shreds with my rear facing Mil. Sure it was a little hairy but I've had a lot lot worse.

I take it these are another type of "renegade".

I think this should be filed with "the portal gun doesn't exist" under the broad heading of suspention of disbelief. The real world is mostly out of our control. Sometimes it's too slow and poderous, at others it's way too fast and dangerous. So, we speed it up or slow it down so it's juuuusssttt ri...

Well, who's fault is that then? Thought it was a good idea at the time. Certainly spices things up. Run out of witchspace fuel last night chasing one bunch of no goods then got jumped by a mass of them. That was a short battle. :oops: 21 gun salute for commander bob. It's funny, because it's true.

Too much of mom's cellar food would appear to have a detrimental effect on personal humility and relative self importance.

Wikipedia is an arse, Half my time there is spent refixing links and having pitch battles with the "well read, yet still ignorant".

Classic case of GIGO. I hear it's quite random from system to system, would a "rand" attribute be more accurate? Also I've only ever seen minerals on sale for less than 8 at a hermitage. 10 appears to be the lowest, would that not be a better ammount to put in the box? Just a couple of thoughts. @ C...

Re: Trading aids

I tend to agree with ClymAngus about killing the fun part. On top of that, there are also some technical limitations which would prevent at least some of your suggestions from being implemented to soon: • What about an insider trading function. Very special mission where the reward is a mod where y...
