Re: Oolite Wiki

Jens officially took over, wanting to bring Oolite "up-to-date" with the various major changes which he introduced, and, again, took years to come out with his first stable version (1.76). At one point during his tenure, Jens disappeared (for a year or so). That's when DH and I were volun...

Experimenting, I now find myself in intergalactic space - ouch! Is the same sort of stuff possible there, I wonder?

Mason & Dixon is an excellent postmodernist novel - highly recommended.

Re: Oolite Wiki

I do not recall an official handover between Jens and cim. <nods> I seem to recall Jens becoming what he called the 'back-seat driver', and cim was never 'officially' Project Lead. Took a while to find the quote, as it was buried in the ED thread... I think of cim as the current lead “feature devel...

Re: Oolite Wiki

Giles handed the job to Jens, and Jens handed it on to cim (although Jens retained the title, 'til he removed it from his profile).
Some of that was before my time here - another_commander would probably know whether that was the way of it.

No Project Lead - yep, that's the problem.

Re: A question of lore

Witchspace is safely in the wormhole. The gooks drag you out of Witchspace into interstellar space at midway, and set about you.
As I said, check F5 - the game itself gives your location as interstellar space. Things happen there, not in Witchspace.

Re: A question of lore

It's too cold to sit outside a pub, as I had planned, and I'm bored, so... Witchspace/Hyperspace! Two opinions: transit is instantaneous, and the apparent elapsed time is the ship's clock adjusting to a different timezone; or it actually takes, for example, 16 hours to transit 4 light years (made to...

Re: Oolite Wiki

Song of the Labyrinth has so much going for it. It's a pity that no-one with the skills, and perhaps more crucially, the time, took it on.
The Scenario thing has great possibilites, but again, it would require skill and oodles of spare time, to make something worthwhile.
