Nice job! So nice in fact, that I feel guilty about reporting the following point :oops: On page 2, part 12, I cannot see any more words after: - "When green, there are no other ship within" The rest of the sentence is obscured by the picture of the HUD. Tried this using both Preview 3.0.9 (Mac OS 1...

It wasn't a bad program, but there wasn't a lot that real Elite fans wouldn't already know. It was nice to see Mr Braben and Mr Bell taking about how they overcame the problems with the development. You never get to see both of them together though ;-) The one thing I didn't previously know was that...

Hi - sorry for the long time for the reply (busy RL) Ahruman -- Both of those files work much better. I can read the text now in all resolutions up to (but not including) 1280x1024. At least there's a definite improvement. That's OK for me though as I usually play on my much faster laptop (which has...

Very nice!
A lot more interesting than the default look, but not quite as 'busy' as Sung's (although I do love those).
Please keep it up.
An oxp that randomises the textures more would be great!

Ahruman - thanks for adding a new word to my vocabulary :-)

I've been meaning to increase the amount of classical music in my collection sometime, and here's a legal way to start.

Just want to say that I've not actually noticed this again for some time now, although don't really get to play as much as I'd like :-( Now running Oolite 1.71.2 on Mac OS 10.4.11. If I do see it again, I'll post it, and have a good look around the system. Edit - when I did see it a lot, it seemed t...

I lust love the way that you've even gone to the trouble of creating an amusing back-story explaining the cancelled texture, on top of actually heeding some criticism!

Well done that man. :D

p.s. I still think it looks very C64 - and that's not necessarily a bad thing in itself ;-)
