There's this one, too …
There's a fairly famous songbook, though it's a bit hard to find YouTube links for them all.

Re: Is Political Change Possible?

A possible subset of this sort of thing: The player might get a chance to join a system's local chapter of the Industrial Workers of the Galaxy, aka the Wigglies , contributing cash and goods (and maybe busting a few union-busters' heads) to let them put together a system-wide General Strike, thus ...

Re: Any Twitch streamer here?

It would probably be better if instead of streaming, someone could edit a video of the game with most of the long waiting times removed and the action moments enhanced with the best graphics and sound packs that are available. There may be something of the sort in the top Oolite videos in YouTube .

Re: Is Political Change Possible?

Yes, both the government and economy properties of systems are read/write. Eeeex-cellent. <taps fingers Burns style> ... Hrm. Actually, I think I need to do some more reading to get a better feel for some aspects of the economic scales and spheres of Oolite systems. That is, if we're starting with ...

Is Political Change Possible?

Is it possible for an OXP to change the governmental structure of a system? That is, for example, if a pilot succeeds at a mission's goals, a particular Anarchy could be turned into a Multi-Government for the rest of that game?

Re: [RELEASE] New Cargoes OXP (1.2.3 released 9 February 2013)

The Dark Wheel includes mention of a few particular cargoes, like "What about alien substances: Manjooza, fear glands, Marswurt?" (apparently narcotics, at least illegal), "Thrumpberry flavouring" (as opposed to juice), "sour-cream and pickles", "Vargorn mind-silk", "gold-flake scales of Geretean r...

Re: [Release] Station Ads

I have no idea if any of the current ad-packs can be adapted for this, but from The Dark Wheel , shortly after an escape pod is launched... The tiny survival vehicle was blasted apart, sparkling fragments falling towards the green world of Leesti. ... An instant after Alex Ryder hit the hard vacuum ...

Restaurant Ships

From The Dark Wheel : And of course, there were advertising Droidships, their catchy light displays blinking out information about ROHAN'S REAL EARTH ALE WITH HONEY, or KETTLE'S CLONE-YOUR-OWN FUNGAL CURES. Or even offering the 'last real food before Witch-Space', small restaurant ships designed to ...

Re: Decals and Nose art.

What you can try - if your GFX driver has the option for setting threading optimization, turn it off. I'm afraid my eyes are drifting closed on me, so I'm powering down for the night, and will only be able to start looking that up tomorrow. (If anyone wants to look that up while I'm asleep, my mach...

Re: Decals and Nose art.

Hmm.. nothing I can see of note in your logs.. other than your Mesa drivers being slightly out of date.. (I'm running 17.2.8 on my Mint machine) but I doubt that's anything to worry about. I can't think of anything else to suggest just now.. since the same set now causes no apparent problems, I'm i...

Re: Adding Depth to Maesin: Which OXPs should I install?

Any suggestions for improving the system's astronomy - planets, stars, suns, and whatnot? Eg, the expansion manager's "Additional Planets SR" collections, vs Distant Stars, vs Distant Suns, vs Realistic Stars, vs Solar Flares, vs System Features: Rings, vs System Features: Sunspots, vs Zygo's set, v...
