Re: Elite : Reclamation (Novel)

Yeah, but I'm also on record somewhere in that forum saying words to the effect of "And Elite 4 will never happen..." ;) Cheers, Drew. Given that Frontier has effectively reset the entire history of the game, this is effectively a reboot (to steal an overused/abused cinematic term) and therefore E:...

Slow news day?

Re: Elite: Dangerous - Design Decision Forum

It does put us potentially back in the "not fun" zone that Frontier and FFE suffered from, where you can run out of fuel and be stranded...

But they've clearly tried quite hard to compromise.

Re: Split: Cheat OXPs

Being a physicist my opinion of the scales (originally) and later, the seesaw, is that is an OXP "weights" the advantage towards the player (makes it easier for the player to trade/fight/refuel etc) then the seesaw (for example) should have the player closer to the "ground" because the OXP weighs mo...

Re: OXP compatibility and balance

EDIT: Suggested change offered up in original posting. Cool .-) Maybe a seesaw would be better, because the shape is much simpler and will work better with smaller sizes. http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm21/DaddyHoggy/seesaw_N_zps4a4284be.png http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm21/DaddyHoggy/s...

Re: OXP compatibility and balance

Are these any good to you? It might be better if the scales tipped in different directions, one way for the player and the other way for NPCs. And maybe give the pro-NPC logo a red background, and the pro-Player logo a green background? Or make the pro-Player logo black on white, and the pro-NPC on...

Re: OXP compatibility and balance

It could be tricky to do consistently, of course: some OXPs might make things easier for Clean players but harder for Offenders or Fugitives, for example. You could go with a range both positive and negative in the indicator, or for something like that (Galactic Navy would be a good example, I supp...

Almost certainly not. There are quite a few algorithms out there for generating nebula procedurally and/or sources of licensing very hi-res images of real nebula.

Re: Sci-fi ship size comparison chart

Nice comparison, nice screen shots and nice explanation. And you're right, it's a surface detailing issue that means they don't look/feel as big as they are - Griff's stations help a lot, it's lighting I think that when you get up close just don't give you that sense of scale...

Re: Sci-fi ship size comparison chart

He seems keen on receiving suitably appropriate side on hi-res screen shots of appropriate ships so perhaps he could be sent some for E(Oo)lite? Probably just ships though, since our space stations aren't actually big enough... (they look OK in game obviously) but I try not to think about what's sup...

Look what I found! http://www.gog.com/game/total_anihilati ... ander_pack

It works with Windows 7 and comes with the music the original game came with too!
