Not Putin, I think.

I wonder if Putin was able to blackmail Trump with stuff from his earlier visits to Mother Russia?

Re: Recovering "Lost" OXPs

Galactic Misjump 0.5 is now available here . My thanks to cim! Opening it up, there is a requires.plist and two folders . The Scripts folder is empty. The Config folder has 2 .plists and a script.js file. Should not the script.js file be in the empty Scripts folder? NB: link on Galactic Misjumps wi...

Re: BlOomberg Markets

New Commodities We now have whisky, quirium fuel, quirium crystals, and more importantly oxygen, water and medicine as new commodities. Is there any hope of expanding Bloomberg/Blooomberg/Bloooomberg to cover them too? Especially the last three from SW Economy? I'd be happy to help write news blurbs...

Re: SW Economy

Can I just ask: if there is a medical emergency announced on GNN or Snoopers - does this reflect in the medicine prices either where I am (less likely) or at the affected spots? Sorry - only just worked it out - this would require Blooomberg Markets to pick up on the existence of medicine, oxygen &...

Re: Species: Lobstoids, Amphiboids, Reptiles etc.

Does anybody know any more - or have any ideas about any of this? Speaking personally, there are loads of different species in my head-canon. For example, the Blue Bug-Eyed Lizards of Atbevete are completely unrelated to the Black Slimy Lizards of Engema. They might be both more-or-less reptilian, ...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

How about this: One idea for improving our wiki! Less about the Wiki, but my "mission for tonight" was to find a thread in the bulletin board here about requests/ suggestions for the next version of the game. Would that fit? I routinely swap my laptop between Windows and Linux, and also am hooking ...

Re: Species: Lobstoids, Amphiboids, Reptiles etc.

Good! Back to the subject! There is now a new Species page on our Wiki: http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Species I'd greatly appreciate some criticism/suggestions for improvement! Meanwhile: 1) are humanoids only in Oolite, or were there humanoid worlds in Classic Elite too? All versions - or just t...

Re: Dictators 2.0

I'm thinking of doing a wiki page on Religion.

What is the status of the third dictatorship - and is there a name for the religion - or is it just for generic theocracies galaxy wide?

Re: Additional Cargo Space Adjustments

Does this OXP now work?

OCZ implies on the wiki page that it was buggy at the time but that newer versions of Oolite would debug it.

Re: Tionisla Orbital Graveyard 2.0

Personally, I suspect the Graveyard orbital already has a beacon installed. It's just that the station master is too lazy to turn it on The more I think about it, the more that I realise it's probably something totally different. Is it not a conglomeration of 1) the sacramental taboos of the Church...

Re: Species: Lobstoids, Amphiboids, Reptiles etc.

Elite Plus on PC did have pictures of species, see for example this YouTube video ca. between minutes 5:30 and 6:30 I had no idea how sophisticated some of the post BBC versions had been. Thank you! PS: Could not help but notice that Captain Solo was everywhere in this version too! Does this Jameso...

Re: Species: Lobstoids, Amphiboids, Reptiles etc.

3) are there any pictures anywhere of Thargoids or Oresrians? Or humanoids? Didn’t the NES version of Elite have pictures of species? Or only of Commander Jameson? Just seen it here: https://www.frontierastro.co.uk/Elite/nes.html . Saw no bugs. A thargoid ship but no thargoids. No Oresrians. Not ev...

Re: Species: Lobstoids, Amphiboids, Reptiles etc.

Goodness! Where did that come from? I've yet to see anything like it. That's from a test OXP I had made some years ago when overlays were introduced in the UI. This one just scans the inhabitants description and if it finds the string "insect", it displays the insect overlay. Found here in case any...
