Is there any advantage to having maintenence performed at a military station vs main station vs the "specialized repair and shipyard" thing I recently saw?

If you're able to fly into this thing to scoop fuel, or even just view the thing from outter space in general, you're already doing some heavy filtering. Sunspots and Coronal Mass Ejections would be cool, but I don't know if they could be pulled off code or texture wise. I'm working on a few more......

In hopes / anticipation of the star in each system becoming a 3D object, and therefore texture-able...

If that proves impossible... Anyone need a texture for a Gas Giant? :P

While in every code reference the sun is treated like a planet... It will mean Oolite would have to start using 3d models instead of the 2d disc that it is using now... Please? If so, can we give it most of the same methods and properties? sun.RotationSpeed, sun.Diameter, sun.IsMain, system.AddSun....

Ability to texture the sun, similar to the method used to texture planets and moons? -- I'm working on an OXP that will replace the "glowing white ball" with some heliospectragraphic images. I'm trying to "freehand" the textures currently, but if that fails miserably (I know my artistic talents :P),...

C = Hoopy (C)asinos
N = (N)avigation Bouy
W = (W)itchspace Bouy

There are a few other letters you'll see as well...

My day is just about over here at work, but if I can find it this weekend, I'll post it.

I get most of a science/technical reading via ArsTechnica.com - Great site, and the columns are wonderful at aggregating the various medias and condensing them to a quantity I can manage to slog through.

Unfortunately for SETI and many other theories, we're recently been able to show that our radio / television signals are indecipherable after about 3 LY.

With the recent results of the WMAP-data-based test showing our own universe is of infinite size, it pretty much guarantees life exists elsewhere in our universe. If life occurs only on 1 out of every googolplex of planets, you still end up with life on other planets because the universe is INFINITE...

Force-Feedback Joystick Support?

First off - ***** THANK YOU!!!! ***** I'm an old Elite commander from the C64 & Apple IIc/e days. I'd heard about Oolite a few years ago, but when I looked into it back then, for some reason I didn't pick it up. I don't remember why.... Anyways, I got a need to blast something last week. So, I check...
