Is anybody who's testing Oolite with Windows 7 able to provide an updated report on the situation?

It may be fake, but I suspect not.. it would not be that hard to cannibalise a keyboard to make a console like that.. I wish the focus was better, I'd like to be able to read the small print under the "Circle Cargo" control. I'm guessing it allows you to cycle through the cargo for jettisoning purpo...

Re: Shaders Reality Check

BTW: discovered why the bumpy trick didn't work on the dod etc - I'd put a }; in the wrong place - but sufficiently cunningly that it did not generate an error. These things are all-but invisible! This is where it's handy to have somebody who knows nothing about coding looking over your shoulder......

I wonder why you need pilot models. I thought ejecting people were in an escape pod. You'd have to get really close to see then peer out of the window. not "need" ... "want". Fighters currently do not have an escape pod ... it adds to the "gunslinger" feel to have a pilot with a backpack eject. Hav...

Re: Q-Bombed in Seedy Space Bar!?!

I had that once with Thargoids outside. However, it could be that you were sitting in the bar that turned hostile upon me! When my turrets switched on, I became fugitive and launched two cascade missiles at the bar, ending that horrible episode for both of us ;) Screet TWO cascade missiles ??? Damn...

Q-Bombed in Seedy Space Bar!?!

I'm having a blast with my new career as a bounty hunter... this is a great oxp, but I've run into something I thought couldn't happen.. I dropped in on a SSB to pick up my next mission, as usual there was a bit of fun going on with a Thargoid, who didn't last long under my lasers, after which I pro...

Question about Random Hits messages.

Having gotten my Iron Ass 1.0 installed, I've commenced on my career as a bounty hunter. Naturally this has resulted in the usual death-threats and warnings, which look a little strange, to me... Judge Patricia Cebece: Hello Recruit Diziet Sma. I've heard that the retainers of Corporal Poole mean to...

Firstly an alien welcome, oh cultured one :D Thank you.. oh dear... does this mean my SC cover is blown? :oops: :lol: Yeah, I guess I could trigger a misjump, but to be honest, I'm not that keen on tangling with Thargoids until I get a new joystick, some things are best not done with just a keyboard.

<snip> There needs to be some sort of escape hatch, even if it's bloody difficult to reach. </snip> I vaguely recall one time getting trapped in witchspace in the C64 version, and using my escape capsule to get out... don't know if this works in Oolite, I've only been playing a week. Since I'm deli...
