Re: Timed Release Ships and Models

Sorry guys, life intervenes. :( I can't work on this project... So if anybody thinks this is a good idea and wants to run with it, feel free to do so. I feel a trifle embarrassed about doing this, but that is the way the cookie crumbles. :oops:

Re: Timed Release Ships and Models

Thanks for the links. You can probably expect me to be popping up all over the board asking dumb questions for the next while. :D

Timed Release Ships and Models

Oolite is a game that is very rich in in-game history, and it is an active universe. So it has always seemed a little odd to me that no matter how long you play, no new ships come on the market. If you think about it, car manufacturers release new models of their cars every year. So would it be poss...

Somewhere in the inky black

Somewhere in witchspace… A group of octagonal warships sat in silence, focusing their attention on the hole in space-time before them. Lave… A lone trader popped out of the station’s docking bay and a flare of light ignited the darkness behind him as he pushed the throttle forward. Mentally, he revi...

Re: Edge of Awesome

That will be all for a while I imagine, say a couple of days maybe. There is a story in here somewhere I think. E. O. Awesome has been forcefully signed up for an slot in the Universal Cooperative of Independent Commanders (UCIC). They pay his way through Officer's School and then keep him under the...

Re: Edge of Awesome

Any instructive advice will be appreciated. I want this to be a little like a game diary, as suggested by the timestamp and wording.

Re: Owning a Station

Re: Owning a Station

I didn't think of that. It would be something of a blow to have all your ships mechanics stored there and the lose it all to a hoard of thargoids.

Re: Owning a Station

Another thing that would be nice is to have Ship Configuration store all your stuff for free there.
