Are you aware of Roolite
No, I wasn't.. and honestly - I coudn't care less :) About 20 years ago I may have needed it, but now I prefer the original.. Same goes not only for video-games but also for the movies, books and so on.

Welcome, evelblade!

roolite.org has outdated main page and activity in Russian sector of Ooniverse is not high, but I hope you can find some interesting content in our forum.

Just to say a hearty "Thank You" to those intrepid experts in matters computational who have enriched the dreaded lockdown period for me. I encountered Elite back in the late 80's on the BBC Micro. I stumbled across Oolite last year but never really looked into it. Now with a bit more time on my hands ....
Over the past month I've been very impressed by your game, the OXPs which transcend the Elite experience and the good-hearted humour evident in the advice on this bulletin board.
I hope that you have all found a similar silver lining in the current restrictive moment.

The basic compass does switch from the planet to the station when close enough, but it doesn't change to a square - it remains as a circle.
Aha. I see this now. That is very non-intuitive! Maybe worth changing for newcomers. It won't really affect veterans with ASC anyway.
I've proposed specific code changes to make the basic compass display a station square instead of the planet circle when it targets the station, which happens automatically (current core behavior) while you are inside the planetary aegis (or the aegis of the main station, if it's not fully contained by the planetary aegis).

May I offer all of those involved a big thank you for all the hardwork that has gone into the Oolite Universe.
