Re: Antikythera Mechanism

Two years ago, I was in a play that had a scene about this thing. We put in some research and it was really interesting. The premise was that someone was building the machine, and then a series of ancient Greek management execs would come in and say "we would like it to do this" or "hey, wouldn't it...

Re: cheats in OOLITE a traders viewpoint

I have a lot of free time on my hands, so when I discovered this game around Christmas, I was determined to give it the time and respect that its heritage demands. Since then, I have installed a lot of OXPs, seriously expanding the scope of the game. Many of these have made the overall experience ha...

Very nice. Though it isn't something I would use, your Enterprise is quite excellent. Kirk and the crew would be proud.

Re: Custom Lasers WIP for 1.77

On the subject of "Cool things to do with lasers", how about an adjustable laser, with some sort of interface to increase/decrease the damage, traded off against increased/decreased heat generation and power consumption. Of course, such a laser would be more expensive, and if you pump up the damage ...

Re: [RELEASE] New Cargoes OXP (1.0.3 released 15 April 2012)

An interesting thing happened today. I was mining an asteroid, as I do when I have some free cargo space and found thanks to my ore processor a ton of radioactives. When I next docked, I caught part of a message, something about Terraforming Nanobots. Sure enough, when I checked my manifest, there t...

Re: [WIP] New Cargoes OXP (0.8.1 released 1 April 2012)

Would it be possible to make New Cargoes compatible with Planetfall and offer things on the planet's surface?

Re: Elite IV's out for the Raspberry Pi - but outside EU :-(

My personal choice would be "I'm happy playing Oolite until everything is sorted out."

Re: Next ship after Cobra Mk III?

I recently upgreded to a Moray Star Boat. Me and the "Flathead" have had some success, mainly with escort contracts. Despite being slower than the Cobra III and having a small cargo hold, I find the handling to be excelent. I do well in combat despite only having a forward laser, and seven tons is u...

Re: Douglas Adams (60th) B'day Party

Every 25th of May I carry a towel with me. In fact I wait for people to come up to me and say "why are you carrying a towell with you?", so that I can have the pleasure of explaining. Douglas Adams is one of the best reasons to be British.

Re: Next ship after Cobra Mk III?

Thanks to Switek's Shipping mod and the saves that come with it, I've been roaming Galaxy 1 in an Adder for six game months. Me and the 'Underdog' have made a name for ourselves as a capable all-rounder and I've made her about as iron-assed as you can get. There's a lot to be said for starting below...

Re: Switeck's Shipping v0.5 OXP - Ai, Economy, and Ship chan

Started playing Oolite about a week ago, and already have a good few OXPs, including this one. It's good to have a bit more variety (realism probably isn't quite the right word for a futuristic space combat/trade/exploration game) in ship behavior and this certainly helps. The alternate starts are a...

Re: Problem launching 1.76

After a short rest and a long sleep, 9.3 solved the problem.
All this time i've been going along with a totally useless graphics driver. Just goes to show that newest doesn't always mean best.
Thanks everyone.

Re: Problem launching 1.76

I think I have it now. I'm running Catalyst Control 10.02, which is completely incompatible with the graphics card. Any Idea how I get rid of it so I can put 9.3 back on? There doesn't seem to be any way of uninstalling it, most of the files are buried somewhere in system/32 and it won't let me put ...
