Re: Ways of obtaining naval energy unit

Currently I'm sitting in galaxy 2 with Dangerous rating (1430). In Ironman mode? Right on, Commander! Thanks, Commander! The problem is that I'm going iron man. If this is the case, then I would really not want to influence your decision. This is your life we're talking about! Fair enough. Well, ev...

Re: Ways of obtaining naval energy unit

You should be able to complete the mission without having to buy anything out of the ordinary. Give it a try and keep a save before you start, worst case scenario is that you find it way too hard and you fall back to the save before starting, then see if you can buy a ship that has the naval unit a...

Re: Ways of obtaining naval energy unit

Yes, it is. Thanks, commander! Would you recommend buying it and also buying military shield enhancement before going for the Thargoid plans mission? I can deal with the thargoids quite alright when ambushed in short jumps. I'm wondering if the Thargoid plans mission going to be much harder than th...

Re: [Release] Market Observer

Hi Spara!
Just FYI, it's not a big deal but I've just noticed that the F8 screen gets a bit messed up in the witch-space when a misjump occurs.
Other than that the market observer seem to work perfectly fine.

Re: Combat is too hard with a keyboard

Well, going ironman again using the new tactics : Try not to get hit and use aft military lasers and fuel injectors most of the time. If the pirates don't get killed, they flee or use their missiles from a distance which makes them less dangerous. Deal with one enemy at a time. At close quarters com...

Re: Combat is too hard with a keyboard

I'd like to thank everyone in this thread. I've adjusted my tactics based on the advice and information gathered here and managed to improve my rating to 105. Eventually, I got killed by Thargoids in the witch space, but that's only because I decided to risk everything and deviated from my original ...

Re: [Solved] How do I enable expansion pack download?

[...] Does gnustep 1.26 also need gdnc? I don't know if it needs it or not -- I can just confirm it has it: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=Linux-deps ldd oolite | grep gnustep libgnustep-base.so.1.26 => /usr/local/lib/libgnustep-base.so.1.26 which gdnc /usr/local/bin/gdnc Apparently is does need it. I believe if ...

Re: [Solved] How do I enable expansion pack download?

Oh well, at least I can confirm self compiled gnustep 1.26 works here (I also checked that I can download the OXZ list and addons, although my approach is to side download from the site and drop them in ../AddOns). GNUStep 1.25 from F30 also works. It just needs gnustep-base package installed so it...

I started yesterday another session, in Strict Mode (= no OXPs) and with Wire Graphic (real nostalgia :wink: ). https://www.gametripper.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Elite-05-Coriolis-Station.png I spend lot of time around Lave destroying meteorites and trading with Rock Hermits to be able buy F...

Re: [Solved] How do I enable expansion pack download?

Still OS libpng and libgnustep-base are used. Others are linked from deps: libSDL-1.2.so.0 => /home/git/oolite/deps/Linux-deps/x86_64/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.0 (0x00007f7d64916000) libopenal.so.1 => /home/git/oolite/deps/Linux-deps/x86_64/lib/libopenal.so.1 (0x00007f7d640a1000) libz.so.1 => /home/git/ooli...

Re: Screenshots

BTW, gal-1-Lave.png is not 512x3072. It's 256x1536. Mine seems to be 512x3072 (but it's from the original release). Indeed, all images are 512x3072 in v1.0. Still some seams are visible on Lave at the very close range, but they are hardly noticeable. Texture resolution in v1.1 varies from 256x1536 ...
