Reinstalling seems to have done the trick. I removed a couple of oxps - the annoying HBRs came out, and the Ixians until I can suss out how to edit out the Bezerka, and the two most irritating Star Wars ships. It seems to have settled down now, although I've not been to a TL12 world and tried the sh...

Further testing reveals that with a new Jameson, I can get into the shipyard at Lave. I think the problem might be just too many ships in the TL12 shipyard where my main commander is at. Because, as mentioned above, I have all the OXPs.

Back after long absence, hi all, I get the same problem: the game hangs on attempting to enter the shipyard screen. The only diagnostic information I can add is that this manifested right after I added a metric shitload (slightly more than the old imperial shitload) of OXPs, so it does seem like the...

I used to play with an analogue joystick on the BBC Micro version. It was rockin' to play that way.

Commander Goat. Flies a python class cruiser by preference, it handles like a sidewinder. It's painted red because red ones go faster, it stands to reason. You'll usually find him on your six, smoking heavily and casually blowing the fuck out of you for spare change. Attacks Fugitives and Offenders ...

Re: Tekbab

Wel-el, the average deflector array consists of a pulse-chambered manotox field generator coupled to a tralaulax compensator which is in turn hooked up to a compendeux ionization distrupter to produce an inverse field harmonic which is subsequency transmitted by isodentrix field coils mounted at no...

Now that is authentic scifi technobabble if ever I heard it. You watch, folks, she's going to talk about reversing the polarity of the deflector arrays any second now.

Another suggestion: a reserve tank as a purchasable upgrade. Occupies, say, five tons of cargo space, holds up to 5LY of fuel, and you can top off the main tank from it with a keypress. It gets filled up when you buy fuel. You still have a maximum 7LY jump, you just have a bit extra for the afterbur...

Either that or allow a purchasable 'overdrive' that extends your range to, say, 9LY - enough to let you take some faster routes but not enough that you can hare across the galaxy in a single bound. This, and the associated fuel tankage, should come at a ruinous cost in cargo space.
