Commander name not displaying properly.

Greets to all, Been away from the game for awhile and recently installed 1.82. Very nice update I would say. However, I've noticed that after saving my Commander under a different name, the default "Jameson" still displays after loading my new commander. Is this a known problem or am I missing somet...

Re: Intel i5-2430m - integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics.

Whenever I see a discussion about OpenGL on an Intel HD integrated chip set, I always recommend installing this OpenGL viewer program: http://www.realtech-vr.com/glview/ Excellent program, free, and will show you in detail just how much of OpenGL your chip set will support, core features, extensions...

Re: How to get more FPS

More FPS? Maximum FPS is generally tied to the display frame refresh rate. At a 60hz refresh, you'll top out at 60fps. The screen can't update the graphics display information faster. The engine code may be capable of updating game display data at 100fps but the physical display can't do it ... the ...

Re: Star Trek... is it really forty-five years old?

Yeah, 45 ... hmm ... I'll give away my age but I watched the original series as a kid when it aired. Between StarTrek TOS and the writings of men (and women!) like Arthur C. Clarke, Robert Heinlein and Andre Norton, I would say they sparked in me a lifelong love of space and it's infinite possibilit...

Re: New distribution-neutral package format

while bash has similarities to windows CMD ( or dos command.com), there's also a huge difference in what you can do with them.
Undoubtedly ... the example is simplified ... :)

Cheers.

Re: OT - configuring XWindows

I hope I'm not intruding too much here ... If I might suggest, I would recommend an Ubuntu distro these days. The install is usually trouble free, the device drivers work 99% of the time out of the box, it uses the newer up-to-date kernals, etc. Just download the .iso, burn to DVD and pop it in the ...

Re: New distribution-neutral package format

OK, DH, you got me, ... I have to ask. How is 'sudo' different from 'sudo bash'?

Re: Looking ahead

I occurs to me that not every station might not be able to accommodate every ship. Lower tech systems might have stations that reflect their current tech status ie; the standard docking arrangement. OTOH, high tech level system might have stations with larger docking facilities as a reflection of th...

Perhaps if there ever was an 'Oolite 2' these steps might be considered to make the game more 'sensible'. But would this be welcomed? Perhaps an "Oolite 2" could be envisioned as more of a "space simulator engine" and less an "Elite clone"? It seems to me that this may have already happened, consid...

How many of you are using Wings3D for modeling?

I'm considering the commission of an Erlang plugin, or plugins, to allow import and export of Oolite .dat files to and from Wings3D without needing a separate Python based conversion. To that end, I've started a dialog with a colleague who has written several successful plugins for Wings to see if h...
