Re: Oolite Combat

Yeah, I'm getting more used to it now I've played a few hours.

Just treating it as a completely different game to Elite.

Re: Oolite Combat

I think I've discovered what the main problem is. I've put the Military Laser power up to the level it was on original Elite - so it can take out a Krait in 3-4 hits rather than well over 10. But, the Laser barely ever hits from 10,000k+ distance, despite the fact ALL of the enemy lasers hit me almo...

Re: Oolite Combat

Fixed it - seems I have to edit with a hex editor, not notepad.

Thanks again all.

Re: Oolite Combat

Re the 20 hits thing, I think it is because the Krait runs away and the code in Oolite seems to allow it to recharge energy and shields whilst running away. I'm pretty sure it didn't do this in regular Elite. So maybe you need like 10-12 hits to kill straight off, but with the enemy allowed to recha...

Re: Oolite Combat

Thanks all, really appreciate the quick replies. I tried going down the edit equipment.plist route, but it doesn't seem to have any effect. I know this not only because I upped the power to 50.0, but I also changed the laser colour in the plist file, but it hasn't changed anything in the game. Any i...

Oolite Combat

As a lifetime player of Elite from when I was only a kid when it first came out, I have to say I love *almost* everything about Oolite. The graphics and interface are great, the additional missions for transporting people, cargo or documents for extra credits - being able to upgrade ships etc - all ...
