I was just wondering... These limits are obviously there due to the initial version of the game only using a signed 8bit number. We've since moved on from there but decided to kepp them and added a nice bit of flavour in saying that the limits are because it's a grey market. And added further flavou...

space hermits often have ships launching from them so it's rare to get past one without getting locked by the ship.

have alook in your save file - there should be a variable called something like 'military-fiasco-kills' (just search for military) with the number of misions kills you've got afterwards. The message on the F5 screen isn't important in terms of how missions work.

the cloak should disable laser fire for sure. I think the AI needs a better reaction to cloaking as well. A frantic search or running away perhaps. I've accidently killed things when cloaked and then not got the kill because i forgot to decloak... And Eric is right, more enemies should have cloaking...

Fit military lasers to all 4 ports then you can just shoot the leviathan. It doesn't move much so using the yaw controls means to can blast it from each port which will just kill it. Your legal status will suffer less as you don't kill all the Vipers etc surrounding it. This trick also works on Thar...

I remember the gaming press was very excited at the time as it was pretty much the first game to have any FMV (Full Motion Video - hmmm... can you get part motion video then??)

I remember being distinctly underwhelmed...

I thought you could use javascript to check to see if another OXP was loaded. That way you could just change the prices of ships that were present and not change those that aren't.

Replies: 9

I like:
Pirate Coves
Trident Down
UPS
Assassins
Fuel Tank
Cargo Wrecks
Deposed
The civil war one with the text adventure bit in the middle...?

(I think they all work with 1.65, they do with 1.68)

I tend not to go for the ship OXPs.

it happens when just sitting on the screen doing nothing. It's fixed in the development source so we'll get that in 1.71. If you want to see for yourself (you're on windows aren't you?) then go and download 'process explorer' (google will find it, it's a microsoft thing). It's like task manager but ...

i wasn't necessarily blaming any of those OXPs - I'm saying that I changed 4 things (version of Oolite and added 3 OXPs) and now I have more crashes. It's just a data point... I suspect that LittleBear is right and that the problem is a memory leak in 1.70. For example I've noticed that it leaks 6Me...

i must say i find that 1.70 with random hits, galactic military and local hero runs out of virtual memory far more quickly than 1.69.1 without any of those OXPs.

No idea where the 'blame' lies...
