Re: Advice for an experienced commander?

I quite enjoyed battles with the thargoids, working with the Galactic Navy. Also some bar brawls / furballs were rather enjoyable 😊

Build fails, nsprpub is missing

I'm trying to build Oolite from source on macOS Catalina, in Xcode 11.4. I cloned the git repository, and following the instructions in readme.md I would only have to open the .Xcode project, and hit the run button to compile.

Re: I'm porting Oolite to the Godot engine. What kind of Quality of life improvements do you want?

Could you elaborate more on why you think it wouldn't be Oolite anymore? Oolite is indeed more than its game mechanics and media that come with the initial download. Its moddability and collection of OXPs/OXZs are a core part of it. A port that makes them incompatible results in a different Elite-b...

Hi skyace65,

Re: Forum update

On the good news side, it is much more mobile friendly. Depends on what it means to you. With the theme from the old version I could see the complete list of forums with status information (new posts yes/no) on one page without scrolling on my phone, now it takes quite precisely two pages with scro...

Re: New Jameson here, some initial feedback

Welcome, and thanks for the good feedback!

Try some of the mission OXPs for scripted stories, check their wiki pages for explanation on what they are about.

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Hi Grindalf, welcome. For me, playability is linked to enjoying the visuals, e.g. BGS. In addition I like to have missions, most OXZs in that category are part of my game.

Re: Screenshots

All those screenshots look gorgeous, but what is it with the shininess of the planets? They look a bit like they are from metal... or is it just me?
