Re: (NEW RELEASE) MultipleForwardLaserPlayerShips(MFLPS).oxp

What if your preferred ship only has front and rear lasers? Of course, that's the point. If you can effectively have multiple lasers on one mount, what's the point in ships with restricted number of mounts? The different ships (not counting uberships like the Vortex of course) force the player to ch...

Re: (NEW RELEASE) MultipleForwardLaserPlayerShips(MFLPS).oxp

This is an interesting OXP idea but when I read a name like MultipleForwardLaserPlayerShips(MFLPS), all I can think of is

This OXP should have been called "DUAL-WIELDED DEATHLIGHTS" or "TWIN SPACEMURDER MACHINES".

Re: [Release] Rescue Stations 1.3.1

Now that I finally have a (slightly) better ship, I look forward to trying more of these missions :D You don't need a better ship - I'm still puttering about in my original cobby3, front & rear beam lasers, injectors, ecm, scanner targetting enhancement + extra energy unit. No missiles. That was en...

YAH - Real ads

Browsing the forums today I see that someone is importing Elite:Dangerous models into Oolite, and I saw somebody else using Elite: Dangerous scrrenshots and artwork as their BGS screens... got me thinking. Has anybody approached the Elite:Dangerous people about making a YAH set to promote their game...

Re: [Release] Rescue Stations 1.3.1

I abandoned the game with the missing RRS station when I moved to 1.80. Started again, (steering well clear of Leesti) and worked my way up to a tier 3 contractor. I took out one of the "vaccine" jobs, picked up the payload and delivered it in time... only to be fined 200+ credits for docking withou...

Re: More/ larger galaxies

The folly, grief, despair etc names, in combination with the bones file suggestion gave me another idea... If you die in the vicinity of/ by crashing into an unnamed rock / planet / star, the responsible spacerock gets automatically named [commander]'s grave or [commander]'s grief or something equa...

Re: More/ larger galaxies

Glad you like it Ziraeal. I just wish I had some coding skills to do it myself. On the subject of names: "L'espoir de {name}", "{name}'s Landing", "{name}'s Descent", "{name}'s Rebirth", "{name}'s Renaissance" "{name}'s New Beginning", "{name}'s Revolution" "{name}'s Fortune" "{name}port" or "{name}...

Re: More/ larger galaxies

> What might be better, if it's genuinely about player exploration, would be to give the systems code numbers, and let the player name them as the first discoverer. Which then begs the idea of a central server which hosts seeds. You can download a seed and use it generate a galaxy-set identical to t...

Re: [Release] Rescue Stations 1.3.1

I've encoutered a small problem with the rescue stations, but I'm not sure if it's a bug in the OXP, another OXP or in the game itslef or what... After flying several successful missions with RRS I accepted a mission to a rescue station in near Lave in G1. Flew over there only to discover that it wa...

Re: Indepth guide of ship concept creation for total idiots

I'm sure most of you are already familiar with this site: http://www.projectrho.com/public_html/rocket/crossindex.php but for those who aren't, it provides a wealth of extremely interesting information for anyone interested in spaceship design, or the physics of spaceflight. It is designed for scien...

Re: New ships under development

Hi all - I thought that I would post a picture of a Python style trader ship that I am developing for future release. As usual any suggestions or comments are welcome. http://i1064.photobucket.com/albums/u366/shipbuilder1/GICTrader.png It needs a big sticker on the back: "We Brake for Nobody"... ht...

The coming age of the personal space station.

Pleb's personal station thread, and the forthcoming ability to mod a "garage" for your ships, got me thinking about the whole "buy a personal space station/ rock hermit" idea that crops up every now and again (and that Pleb is apparently working on.) One of the complaints about such an OXP is that y...
