I like that a lot Griff. Would suggest making the decal a lot smaller to give it a more exclusive look though. (I think that might work).

Thanks for hosting the Oxp El Viejo, i hadn't noticed the box site was out of bandwidth!
I've also copied it to Gimi's "Griff Overload" box.net page as well https://www.box.com/s/l3f04h9yz15jqhthak8r

Yeah the decal needs a better placement, to be honest the ship looks better without one as it's quite 'busy' with all the 'hull plate lines' etc on it, maybe placing the decal on the back might be better, i'll have an experiment and post up some decal settings to try out

Should I link to your folder on my Box, Griff? I have eight of your OXPs in there, atm... you can add/remove as you wish.

Griff -
As always, you have space on DHI.com. I've long made it freely available to you for as many OXP's as you wish to store, and don't see that changing.

Lol Griff, your OXPs are so popular that not only have you run out of bandwidth on your box account, but everyone else with space is jumping at the chance to host your OXPs! A sign of celebrity status among Ooliters! 8)

BTW I'm liking the new Fer-de-Lance, but as was said before perhaps making the decal slightly smaller might work.

It's available at my box.net site, file name is griff_ferdelance_new2013.zip and will work alongside the other two fer-de-lance attempts in my shipset (Ie it won't overwrite any files or anything)
Ooooh yeaaaah!! 8)

Again I will offer - my webspace never runs out of bandwidth, Griff. I have 100GB, with 99GB free, and you are welcome to use some of it. The griff ships are big files and the box accounts may struggle, so if you want to use my webspace to host them you are more than welcome.

I can set up exclusive FTP to your own dedicated area of the site and even put together a microsite for you to link to the files if you would like.

Wow Guys, thank you all very much for offering to help host the oxp's! What an amazingly helpful COomunity we have here - everyone just dives in to help! I'm not sure why my box.net site's gone over it's bandwidth again, must still be excitment from the Elite:Dangerous kickstarter, i've never noticed it go over 20% of it's monthly allowance before.

I think out of all the oxp that i have at box, the only one that it's a shame if it goes offline for a month is the shaded blackmonks oxp - prehaps we should find a new home for that? All my shipset ones you can get at Cmd. Cheyd's Deep Horizons page and El Viejo and Gimi have some emergency box.net folders for the occasional one off oxp i manage to get around to making which has it all covered i think

Slightly ot but I've been trying to get Griff's Alloys and wreckage OXP, and that's caught in the out of bandwidth.

I reckon that the Dangerous Kickstarter is responsible for a lot of this. I know that it got me into Oolite and I've been adding OXPs by the handful!
Best regards,
Jeff
