If you don't like the walnut dash and the chair lining, please bring your ship to the nearest Seldar Shipyards outlet where replacement parts will be fitted as long as you haven't voided your warranty.


Note: Warranty is voided by starting up the engines.
I think it might be related to the fueltank oxp... im pretty sure
that my fuel started to have more fuel after a fight after
i installed that, and 1.68.

Fueltank.oxp
and Ore processor OXP is the only two OXPs installed
apart from some custom ships i build, and may release in the near future... when im happy with them
I don't have this one. And I haven't yet had to sunskim or buy fuel at stations even after jumping 6.8ly..........:?:

I'm not sure that this is something to talk to your psychologist about.

Old pythons sometimes suffer from clogged fuel lines. It may be time to consult the local system Oorologist. :P

Does it? It should have a mounting on Front and rear.

I can't remember if the old version had mounts on the sides too...

Both the old and new version have all four weapon mountings. (Otherwise it wouldn't have made sense to have weapon_positions defined for all four directions.)

The relevant bit is in the shipyard-plist and hasn't changed:

Code: Select all

		<key>weapon_facings</key>
		<integer>15</integer>

The new version does however (and I think that's what pescenaufrago is referring to) carry less missiles than the old one: only four instead of six.

On checking the Plists, yeah, you're right about the laser mountings.

It does have less missiles though. That's an attempt to make it a bit less uber following feedback on the first version.

Looks can be deceiving, it's a beautifull looking ship, but what a brute! not to be messed with. Have you changed the specs?
