Re: Sci-fi ship size comparison chart

I loved this in its earlier incarnations - it's nice that he's keeping it up to date.

Re: Destroying the main station via script

Thought: (May have been answered elsewhere) If Oolite engine makes a dockable station a main station if the native main station is removed then would it be possible to make an OXP that keeps track of all dockable entities in a particular system, then, when a player approaches any in-system station t...

Re: Progress

Looking really good! Although I think the increased chatter might make HUDs that reduce message texts and/or display them to one side more popular. what's with all the (sometimes very) long ship names? The really, really long name – We Haven't Met Yet But You're a Great Fan of Mine - is from a list...

Re: Progress

It's taken a few months, and twenty pages of discussion but the new NPC AI, population and behaviour is now part of master. Here's a short video with some of the new stuff, as a pack of hunters launch from Leesti station. That really is looking quite brilliant. I haven't played in ages - what's wit...

Re: Help! I made the short-list of a writing competition!

4, 12 and 16 are my own personal favourites - and you can blame the Pratchett influence for the Lawyer/Vampire thing!

Glad you found some to take your fancy.

Re: Help! I made the short-list of a writing competition!

Ha! Thank-you for your honesty - I really liked C too! Turns out I entered 16 times! Here they all are for your delectation... (I have my favourite and it's not the one that got short-listed!) The comp ran from September 8th to 26th - I learned about it on the 14th. *** FLF13 16. When they told me m...

Re: Help! I made the short-list of a writing competition!

The comp ran via Twitter for two weeks prior to last night's 2-hour short-listing and voting. It had to be a complete story, themed (loosely) on "Soul" - the tweet had to contain the hashtag #flf13, which, with a space as a separator, left 133 characters to write the story. Flash Lit Fiction, as par...

Re: Help! I made the short-list of a writing competition!

Thank-you guys.

Yes, I too think there will be a next time!

They deliberately keep the voting to a very short time frame to stop, I guess, vote harvesting. (Although I clearly had a very good go!)

Re: Help! I made the short-list of a writing competition!

Alas, they actually closed the comp at 10:15pm UK time, I'm not sure why the page is still accepting votes - but it's nice to know I would have won eventually!

Thank-you for voting for me though DS! 8)

Help! I made the short-list of a writing competition!

OK guys, I made the short list of a Twitter based writing competition - the entries are all brilliant so I'm just glad I made the list - but I thought my entry might appeal to the geeks amongst the forum... Anybody who thinks my entry worthy of a vote - it would be much appreciated: http://www.flash...

Re: The Sky At Night might be cancelled!

I also grew up watching it as a kid - which means it also must have been on at a sensible part of the evening too (or at least a repeat of it).
