Why would one pass on a VM when you can pass on savegames though? because if there is an item in the save that depends on a certain OXZ , and the next commander doesnt have it installed then at best items will be missing , a save could be corrupted etc. i wouldnt c...

Enhance my savegame

I've been missing the opportunity to play oolite online/MP scince day one. Knowing that it won't be implemented soon i was thinking about some sort of common savegame. You upload your savegame and sort of pass it on to others like a continuous narrative. I'd upload the file here but due to security ...

Re: Gnustep

Running ubuntu 14.04 with a Gnome3 Desktop i have second thoughts on removing Oolite v 1.77.1. In the Directory /home/GNUstep/ there are only 2 files: /Defaults/oolite.plist and library/Caches Oolite-cache.plist. I'm not exactly familiar with GNUstep, but i wonder if savegames still work when removi...

Re: Is it just me or did some of the voices disappear?

Thanks! I will upgrade soon, but i basically installed oolite in hope of improving my understanding of development and implementation so i'll just go with the version provided for now. The fact that i nevertheless played it for countless hours only speaks for the game. http://fs2.directupload.net/im...

Re: Is it just me or did some of the voices disappear?

The repositories have no earlier version, it's v1.77.1. I somehow hesitate to install packages, maybe i should overcome my fear.
There is no options for spoken messages on the Options menu, i just checked. Just sound Volume and Music on/off.

Re: Is it just me or did some of the voices disappear?

*excavating thread* Using v 1.77 without OXPs I just stumbled across the file speech_pronunciation_guide.plist wondering what it does. I thought that maybe in newer versions there are spoken messages yet i read that in earlier versions that was a feature too. I have no in-game-checkbox or something ...

Re: Constrictor Mission (*Some Spoilers*)...

Thanks. I did it. I am not sure but i think i've read that you'd get a naval shield or something in addition to the kills and the credits. Is this not correct (for any of the scenarios of completing the mission)?
