Are there special favorites from my old sets that people would especially like to see more in tune with the new oolite universe?
Not an old set of yours but 1 set that pops up in my mind is Military Fiasco (no offense meant). I personally like the mission and the ships there but if you compare them with the new oolite universe they could use some refurbishment, maybe in the style of your Light Destroyer or ADCK's Galactic Navy ships.
One of the last things I was playing with was navy ships ... a big triangular carrier.
Currently mainly interested in small ships, fighters.

Thought of theming one of the empires as SW-esque... but also musing of hijacking my neolite anaconda design as a military ship, add in the re2dux constrictor design since it's just too beautiful not to keep. All renamed and repurposed.

So the anaconda would be a pocket star destroyer/frigate, the constrictor a destroyer or heavy scout.
Themed textures for the vipers ... that actually looks easier than what I had.
And a carrier ... I had two carrier designs, one a big triangle and the other basically a dock with engines strapped in.
Military base.

That would mean checking to see which things I'll be stepping on.
But right now ... getting used to the tools.

Have not looked at military fiasco.

I think I know though... it's a chopped cobra with big engines and cut-away panels to accommodate huge intakes.
There was some enthusiasm for that at the time but it never made it to a model.
Yes, that sounds like the one.

... hmmm you have seen my ships right? "Returning to original" is not what I do.
Fair enough.
I had got the impression however (if my chronology is correct) that, with regards to shipsets at least, you had been heading in that direction.
Waka/Piko ---> Neolite ---> Re2dux

Sounds good.

Holy mother of..... :shock:


It's SIMON B!

Welcome home, mate.. didn't think we'd ever see you again..
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

Well on and off ... I have real world projects occupying modelling skills. Architecture CAD and reno.
I've downloaded the latest version and looking to see if I can update skins to fit better with Griffs ships.
