Re: Eye candy OXZ's?

They're working fine here. As far as I know, there are no mirror sites - which DH OXPs are you after?

Re: Eye candy OXZ's?

These should work (if not, I'll message Cheyd). The DH Nav Buoy is a must-have.

Torus Stations are cool - and Povray Planets is well worth trying.

Re: Oolite Combat

Ah, that Zaquessoian evil juice! Yes indeed - the purple poison! Oh to be on Zaquesso now the xagave are in bloom! Christos, are you running any OXPs? I'm all for sticking to the core game mechanics, but there's some fine eye-candy to be had. If you have decent gfx, Griff's shipset is good, and Ran...

Just treating it as a completely different game to Elite.
You still get to eat Cequququian wolf meat though - and drink Zaquessoian evil juice!

Re: Oolite Combat

After changing something internal such as a plist, you need to restart Oolite with shift held down 'til the spinning Cobra appears.

Re: Oolite Combat

Welcome aboard, Commander! But what have you done to the Military Laser!? On every other version of Elite, you can kill the weak units in 2-3 direct hits - eg Kraits, Sidewinders. Kraits are practically unkillable with Military Lasers in Oolite!!! I've estimated you need at least 20 direct hits with...

Re: A Humble Suggestion/Question

Welcome aboard, Commander! I am most definitely not 'one of the clever people' - merely a dumb pilot.
I'm pretty sure that turning this into a MMORP has been done now with Elite Dangerous.
Elite: Dangerous is really Frontier III in disguise.

Re: Ooliteers Planet - An Interactive Pinmap

There was a map on the LT forum. Then the map's host put it behind a paywall. Weasels, just like photofucket!
It's since been relaunched on google maps, but of course one has to log-in to google to place a marker. <spits>

Re: Fastest way to buy a Boa/Boa CC?

Oh yes, plenty of zapping! And as the contracts become tastier, so does the opposition.
An aft laser, and the ability to use it effectively, can be very useful, if not essential.


Installing the Skilled NPCs oxz is not recommended, but can add to the fun.

Re: Fastest way to buy a Boa/Boa CC?

There's always a grind of some sort. <grins> Payoffs like the above aren't too common, and the 100k one includes an early delivery bonus (which is not guaranteed) in excess of 40% A more usual cross-chart run (with base amounts) would look something like this: https://i.postimg.cc/grp1kmvG/Sixer.png

Re: Fastest way to buy a Boa/Boa CC?

I'm pretty sure there are reputations for cargo contracts, passenger contracts, etc., right? I want to know how much a person could make if he has the highest reputation. Right! Top-ranked parcel couriers can pull this sort of payoff: https://i.postimg.cc/7P2wdXfM/Pay-Off.png As mentioned, there ar...

Re: Fastest way to buy a Boa/Boa CC?

Parcel delivery contracts - work your rep up, and they become quite lucrative. And they use no hold space, so you can trade as you go.
