Asimov's Foundation TV series

Could Asimov's Foundation novels really be done as a TV series?


Looks good... pity it's Apple TV though.

... mountains were turned into valleys...
That'd turn Olympus Mons into one helluva big pit!

Re: Get your Oolite Bulletin Board browser search plugin here!

I'm using the latest Waterfox (Classic), and I just removed the plug-in, then re-installed it successfully.
I expect the 'problem' will migrate from Firefox to Waterfox eventually though. Pity, it's a useful tool.

Just checked: no luck installing the plug-in in Firefox 79

Re: Random Station Names OXP

Thankee!
I’m not sure if you still need to do this [ ] but start Oolite and the first time you run after installing hold down the shift key.
You don't. Only needed after tinkering under the bonnet.



Well of Heaven, eh?

Re: Frage zu Miss Jump Oolite 1.8.8

Muchas gracias, Admiral. I've noticed a correlation between advancing years and an increasing lack of certainty.


The forced misjump has become a useful part of gameplay for some - Midway is not only about snuffin' gooks!

Re: Frage zu Miss Jump Oolite 1.8.8

In the dim recesses of my memory, I have the notion it was a cheat, inserted for testing, and left.
I may be wrong, of course! Hopefully, someone might know for certain.

Re: Frage zu Miss Jump Oolite 1.8.8

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think forcing a misjump only works pitching upwards.
If using a stick, it may not work at all. In that case, keyboard input is needed.

Re: Frage zu Miss Jump Oolite 1.8.8

As far as I know, 'random' misjumps should still occur, though they are more likely when your maintenance level is low.

So I did, Admiral! It'd make a nice OXP, would the Grand Tour! I look forward to Mercury!

Nice! Eight planets in the Solar System - two down, six to go for the Grand Tour!

The Centre for Computing History

The Centre for Computing History in Cambridge has been hit hard by Lockdown, but DB/FD has decided to sponsor it. Kudos for that!
Article at El Reg here - and of course Oolite gets a plug by one of the Commentards.
