Re: Live chat between Oolite commanders, devs and general fa

Thanks commander! This will strengthen Oolite's community! Oolite was a huge part of my childhood, and while I was (and still am) terribly annoying at times, everyone here has a special place in my heart. I'm looking forward to chatting with you guys!

Re: Favorite Combat Tactics

I made lots of grammar mistakes in this post, and after re-reading it twice I corrected most embarrassing ones, so sorry if there are any I missed! I hope it makes sense! I mostly play as a smuggler, and often avoid fighting bands of pirates. Fighting often results in a net loss when equipment and n...

Re: Joysticks for macs?

Dha and Cody: Thanks so much for your help! It's in my amazon cart. I was just wondering if you had to do anything to get it set up, and if so, what? Also, what did you notice going from keyboard to joystick? It seems like joysticks give you more control over your ship, making docking and dog fighti...

An update: I forgot that the Anarchies OXZ makes it harder to clear your legal status. Whoops!

Joysticks for macs?

I've been interested in getting a joystick for Oolite, but I know nothing about joysticks and don't know what I should be looking for. I am a mac user and a poor academy student. I'm also an American, but I'm not sure if that will limit my choices or not. What do you guys recommend? Will it be possi...

Commander, were you transporting narcotics when you saw this "UFO"?

Re: The Oolite economy - Police response

I honestly think that the local planets have more influence over Galcop in their systems than most give them credit for. Corporate states depend on business and commerce not for their economy, but for their government itself; they provide Galcop more resources, whether local pilots or otherwise, whi...

Re: Quick question on time and legal status

The other way to clear your record is to fight your way into the aegis, dock under fire, and pay a fine and/or get sent for 'attitude adjustment'. The fine can be expensive (I've paid 6400 - possibly the max), and the AA will take plenty of in-game time (plus the cost of any ship repairs). I've fou...

Thanks for the answer, I always thought it was time and not jumps (I had no evidence, this is just what I thought).

Don't panic!

Quick question on time and legal status

I have been accused (only accused mind you) of smuggling narcotics, shooting down a Galcop Viper, and shooting the main station a whole bunch in the process. I'd imagine that the bounty on my head for these crimes I didn't commit is around 300. After spending some 5 in-game days jumping around I sti...

Re: An American Christmas card

Now, lets talk about history. The American constitution does grantee "the right to bare arms." .... The idea of "A Nation of Riflemen" is an outdated notion scrapped shortly after it's attempted application. This and a fair number of other Americanisms are covered in Bill Brysons 'Made in America' ...

Current state of OXP's?

I love the new OXZ's set up. Amazingly smooth, it's just perfect. However, I'm a little confused about installing older OXP's, and if many of them exist from... 8 years ago?!?! I can't believe it's been that long. Anyway, I was wondering about the old ship OXP's, like the Cobra mk IV, and others. Ca...

Re: TOS or Next Generation?

Thanks for the replies guys! I will be watching TNG very soon, though the fact that I'm addicted to oolite again may delay it. As for Americanism/Colonialism in sci-fi shows, it's such a huge theme it drives me crazy. I'm pretty sure the writers want to make an episode about some "virtue", write abo...
