Re: Elite: Dangerous - and other stuff!

F*** Politics. I bought this game to see pretty things. Gotta agree with your sentiment. I still have to find reason to care about the 'living' galaxy that FDEV are attempting to create. I wonder how long before we see planetary landings...and where's f**king pause button when I'm playing solo? I c...

Re: Posting images on the Oolite forum

Thanks everyone. Photobucket seems like it will be acceptable enough. I like to avoid Google offerings where I can...they have enough of my info already

Posting images on the Oolite forum

Hi all, what sites are people using to enable the posting of images in their Oolite forum postings (i.e. via the [url] tags)

What pros and cons have you all found with the various options out there?

Re: [WiP]Ship's Cat OXP

Um..yeah..I think this OXP is getting a little out of hand now. I think I have problems with a load on the processor...it's even infecting other games... http://daftworks.co.uk/oomages/Bugbear-20150611-Ships%20Cat-S.JPG <Edit: Removed link to box.net, inserted link to image.

Oolite Developer Release

Guys, a question regarding the Oolite-1.82_x64-Deployment-to-Test-Release.exe. I'm running Oolite-x64 on Windows 8.1. After a bit of trial-and-error I determined that this utility can be run from the command line, and it asks for a folder where an Oolite installation can be found. I had intended to ...

Limit Theory

Looks like Josh Parnell has resurfaced. Sounds like he went through a few months of darkness.

Good to see him back on deck and hopefully his recovery will be complete.

Re: Advertising OXPs in da manager

One feature that could be useful - provide an 'OXZ auto-update' option, or at least provide an explicit list of 'Installed OXZs that have a newer version available' (yes, I realise this is achieved by clicking 'Manage Expansion Packs' / 'Update expansion list', then comparing the Installed vs Avail...

Re: Advertising OXPs in da manager

... I think a good solution would be to have a regular (say every six months) review of popular and favourite OXP's ... Does the OXZ manager collect data? Is it possible to generate this information automatically and have it posted on the Oolite web page? Having said that the privacy nutjob in me c...

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

Decided to take the Quantum Pelican II back out into the black. Those mothballs really stink up the cockpit, but she's a good ship and it's great to be back. Jumped into the Ribege system and was minding my own business heading in system. I'm a sucker for helping out those in distress so when I hear...

Re: What happened to the Baddies?

To be fair, perhaps the baddies are now acting like they have something to risk and lose. Putting on the <Immersion> hat for a moment...if death, or even significant financial ruin was a distinct possibility, wouldn't you exercise some caution, and cut your losses when the stakes get too high?</Imme...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - and other stuff!

So last night while doing cargo runs in open, I got interdicted by an NPC Cobra whose pilot had a Dangerous rating. Me, Harmless, and armed with an effectively unmodified Cobra (i.e. twin pulse lasers, no shield or hull improvements) was able to take him down with him not even managing to breach my ...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - and other stuff!

I have developed such a like | hate relationship with this game (I will never love this game). I feel dirty every time I click on the ED shortcut. Once again, my limited gaming time is lost to the ever present Upgrade Now. F**k this, back to Oolite. I've started a new commander and am really struggl...

Re: Now where have I seen that name before

Hoopy Casino The other two aren't surprising, but the hoopy casino originated in Elite, not Oolite. (Trivia: in theory, planets could also be famous for "hoopy cuisine", "hoopy sit coms", and even "hoopy its hoopy goat burgers". None of them are, of course.) I was gonna say that it's probably the g...
