Re: Paddling Pool OXZ

Hi Redspear, It looks like you left some ^M characters inside the OXZ description, which is breaking the parsing of the file Oolite-download.plist when we try to update the expansion list.

Re: Species Icons in Oolite

I would dearly love to see more made of the species in the game. All the gubbins I've dug up so far can be found on the new Species page in our wiki. Finger's crossed I'll be salvaging from my old PC soon, in whish case I plan to rescue this one . If I ration its ambition ever so slightly then I th...

Re: A question of lore

Looks like there'll be a wait as the wiki isn't keen on my uploading the file for some reason.
