My guess is, he painted them in. I wrote an article about it, about a year ago.

Very nice model. The texture is just right. I take it you use the 'bogus surface relief' method to add much of the apparent detail? I think Wolfwood is correct, however. I've found that extremely small ships, the size of a viper, tend to get collided-with and destroyed, if you try to fly up, and loo...

Hmm, perhaps. What I was after, was the idea of hunting for a vector, pointing yourself at it, and then hitting the J kay to go straight at it. More of a 'work out the vectors and fly at it' sort of thing? Maybe I wasted that one.... I'd like to think that Elite/Oolite captains would be receptive to...

My suggestions are more playful, than designed to provoke - honestly :). For instance, you may want to hunt back, on Google, as to why I suggest "Ungeziefers" for thargoids. (the hint is "Franz Kafka" - or, more specifically, how he was translated :)). Most of my suggestions are either physics-relat...

@Flying_Circus: Is that enough for whatever you're up to? Quite possibly. I was really just wondering whether things like scaffold-like gantries, and such were possible, by just faking it together, rather than modelling every detail. It's a non-issue, really: nothing I'm 'up to' :) (you make it sou...

I am the owner of said brain.

In the Elite of my imagination people are less po-faced (or, possibly, drunker?).

I take it they don't inherit from each other - or, indeed, some MotherOfAllSpawns class?

Yes, the easiest way to determine where a viewpoint/exhaust point/weapon point, should go, is to load the model in Wings, and either find (or, if necessary place) a vertex at your desired location. the coords for your weapon/view/exhast, etc, are those of the vertex, as show top left of screen.

Thanks for clarifying that. I have a large carrier that rolls as it flies. I suppose that makes it a flying space station. It is already defined as a carrier - and it wil roll, when asked to - but when asked to roll at a specific speed , this is ignored. I am assuming they both inhertit from the sam...

Herm, so does "station" predefine any other behaviour, Ahruman?

Transparency in textures.

When last I tried it, transparency of any kind (much less alpha transparency) didn't seem to be supported by Oolite's rendering? Is this still so, and would it be a huge task, to fix?

As always, let me know if you need any ellucidation.

Does altering station_roll have an affect?

If so, what numbers should I give it, to make it have a visible effect?
