Well the internet connection isn't a problem, I'm one of the few here to have an optic link right into the house.
(Still suprisingly slow. Rarely see over 1Mb/s. Kid bro in UK often boasts >80Mb/s, little s***.)

Still a game buster for me.
I sometimes go weeks or even a couple of months between Oo binges. And like my Ooniverse to be exactly as I left it.
Sounds like I could park in some nice stable system and come back to well Anarchy.
Amazing graphics aside, well not that my machine can run them anyway. Busted.
LOOK OUT!!!

That was something I too hoped for back in the early Kickstarter days: like Oolite but with mega graphics, modding on a grand scale and tons of lore to explore too. The game as it is can be fun though. The end of that mad Hutton Mug Community Goal was something to behold, likely my best moment so far in the game. Perhaps one day FD will give us that game we here dreamed about, the game us older players really wanted. But there is a silver lining in all this, Oolite has not been made redundant, it's still here and as good as it ever was, better even in many ways. 8)

i got NBN fibre to the home, paying for 100/40 through telstra.... speedtest says 97down 38 up but i only get that on speed test.... actual web surfing is variable and can be slow. downloading "Debian iso's"... best i saw was 7.8MB/s but mostly the max i get is between 2MB/s and 4MB/s......
