Re: Reporting spam

Are all these spammers getting past the captcha system? (erm, I forgot, does the BBS have a captcha in the registration?).

Or do these guys have armies of 3rd world children online and pay them $0.0001 per successful captcha or something?

Re: At least buy me a beer!

another question came to me: why is it that no NPC (except -maybe- the cops) ever helps me out? It would be cool if there were a inter-ship chatter system, I'm sure that must have been proposed before. Hail other ships, congratulate them on a kill, taunt pirates, shout for help, etc. Maybe even put...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

I must confess I like the 'must use eyes' feature... :) Well, there is still this thing with the station : a ) vanishing from eyesight at a certain distance-range, will reappear when coming closer, or getting farther away. b ) the station being visible through the planet. combined, those effects ca...

Re: Is it time to 'fix' the Anaconda?

I could even take more cargo contracts than total capacity by temporarily offloading my goods at a station so I had room to get more. This could prove problematic because I'd need to re-buy similar goods later before reaching the destinations. This has always struck me as a something of a flaw in t...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

While engaging a medium difficulty random hits assignment, I sucesfully got in some good hits on the mark, then I got to use my favorite trick when the mark escapes through a wormhole -- energy bombing (IMO it's just not *lite without the energy bomb) all the henchmen and then leisurely making my wa...

Re: V1.77

Oh, I can deal with it, now. I haven't lost my touch, as I have taken every ship I built out on numerous excursions, and faced down the deadliest forces I could find. In the case of ships I made as pure traders, I tried making trade runs with them, once again just trying to make it to the Main Syst...

Re: Military Fiasco not starting?

The order for me on 1.77 was definitely: 1) ship encounters, 2) update status screens, 3) mission intro That is definitely a bug, but one with a very low probability. Before the mission offer they are added with low probability and you need to kill 5 before you get an update screen. And the mission...

Re: At least buy me a beer!

HEY BUDDY! At least you could buy me a beer at the dock, let alone maybe a flippin' reward !?! Geesh! Does this need a new interface? A bar would be nice, but I notice that other OXPs after completing them give little rewards upon docking from time to time. It might be a slight inconsistency if the...

Maintenance update. I added a script to the military ships subentities. Special for the guys that loved to shoot of the subentities before going for the big kill.

Well I didn't figure it out but it's "fixed" now. I installed a bunch of OXPs and as soon as I did I started seeing Pi-42 clerks (which are not the same thing as Pi-42 stores it turns out, nothing in the documentation mentions that), and I got offered a mission on my 2nd landing at a Pi-42. It was f...

Is there a log or a setting in an oxp to turn on loggin to see once and for all if there's something wrong in my installation? I do have Zz-Oohaul.oxp, I see OOhaul ships, and yet I have docked at Pi-42s hundreds of times and never, ever gotten a single offer of a mission. I satisfy all the requirem...

Re: modernized targetting system

In order to build multi-part missions with multiple subgoals and have them be playable, the ship targetting system needs an overhaul. While I agree that there could be more enhancements to the target computer, I would not agree with the above statement. The quite complex missions with huge and conf...

The proposed changes seem to be sensible to me, so I would second it, if it's not to complicated to code. Has anything happened since? Just been playing with the change, and it seems to work fine. I used 15 as a "reputation cap" and I observe that it does go above 7, and does go down but as long as...

Probably, but having a clear "mission finished" would still help :)

In a GalacticNavy mission, are you guaranteed to find a squadron already in the destination system, ready to tell you to "form up"?
