Re: Zieman's Habitat Station as a Zero-G stadium???

Thanks for the compliments! :) If you want to make an OXP that uses aforementioned stations as Zero-G sports arenas, go ahead. Hey, thanks for the oxps :wink: I dropped myself right in it with that one :lol: I'm a beginner at scripting but something fairly unambitios, like just asigning it to syste...

Re: Hello, thank you and a few questions...

Having trouble getting this to work using the allowSpawnShip method for stations... So you could add to the Ghavial entry in shipyard.plist the line "condition_script" = "ghavial_conditions.js"; and then add a file called ghavial_conditions.js to the Scripts folder of the OXP this.allowOfferShip = f...

Re: Didi you play Elite?

Most of the ships were represented too, I think the only one conspicuous by its absence was the Constrictor, for some reason that mission wasn't coded on the Spectrum. I can definitely remember Boas, Adders, Cobras, Sidewinders, Kraits, Mambas, Pythons and, of course, Thargoids. There were even ast...

Zieman's Habitat Station as a Zero-G stadium???

Browsing the forum some time ago, I found this: http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=12626&p=186114&hilit=working+on Upon downloading to have a look, I thought it was rather splendid! :) As it doesn't seem to be allocated for anything yet (is this still the case???), does anyone else think it ...

Hello, thank you and a few questions...

Hello all :) , I'm a veteran of Spectrum Elite back in the 80's but only ever made it to Dangerous. Did the nova mission back then (big surprise jumping to a 'coloured' system).
