Re: Decals and Nose art.

I was considering using Photoshop to add decals in the good ol' way and I think it would work, but then I considered using graphic drawing software in order to play with weathering effects, such as paint chipping and being bleached by sunlight/burnt by near misses and impacts from weaponry and space...

Re: Decals and Nose art.

Roger, thanks! So I can just go ahead, find a texture from the game folders, and modify it with Photoshop or another drawing program? Plus I've already got a graphic tablet, so it can help.

Re: The Shipyard at the End of the Ooniverse. Modeller's bit.

Thanks for the link! I may well end up using it mostly for non-Oolite related things, but I think I'll be toying with this a little.

Re: 1984 (alternative history)

I don't know exactly what you're talking about, would a quantum computer be teleported in the year 1984 of our real world? The game being set in the same universe (just much later) as H.G. Wells' novel 1984?

Re: REWInd Inc. Time manipulating devices

If we're to fight other ships using time manipulation, would there be a way to create a weapon that would slow down time around your opponent? It could be quite expensive, hard to use, and be quite consuming in terms of energy, but if would pretty much put your opponents in slow motion mode, making ...

Re: Decals and Nose art.

Is there a place where I can look for such decals to add to my ships? I remember that back in 2007, I had a friend do Soviet, Yugoslav and East German air force decals for me, but he never showed me how his dark magic worked :oops:

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Hi everyone, I've arrived here after googling oolite, since I played it a lot more than ten years ago, and now I wanted to show it to my 7 year old son. And I found out that the game's still alive and being updated, so I couldn't miss that! I think it's a proof of how great and adaptable the game is...
