I agree. Why sample from films, when we could make our own sounds! I make a lot of electronic sounds as part of my main hobby (making electronic sounds), and thus have access to various its of software and quite a few nice synths. I will have a go at making various laser sounds in the next few days....

Ha ha!
That was a cunning plan worthy of Garp the Parp!

(For the few who remember him - er, I mean me!)
(Wish they'd reprint that series. I'd do an .OXP based on 'The Mush Rush'.)

Cheers. So I just copy and paste the template into the entry I'm amending, and then edit it accordingly. How then does the ship entry have this at the bottom: - Templates used on this page: Template:Infobox ShipStats Oolite Do I just copy and paste that at the end? Sorry for the stupid questions, bu...

Once your .OXP is done, I hereby volunteer myself to update the Wiki with the ship data that you have collated. I was going to get round to this, but I've been busy reading about scripting, learning Wings, trying out textures, etc. (Not really tried modding a game ever - but Oolite has me hooked!) B...

:shock: Oh wow! These are really nice. Would it be hard to make an .OXP that randomised between these textures and the default ones? Not looked at making one yet, but I've got to start somewhere, and this is probably one of the simpler ways to start. What on earth were people saying to annoy him aft...

How about this? http://img247.imageshack.us/img247/3950/galaxy256xe3.png I've had a bit of a spin around Leesti, and it doesn't look too bad to me. Might be a bit too solid at the edges though . . .

Thanks all. I'll start experimenting with various OXPs. I've uploaded OoliteRS.pdf onto the Wiki (had to zip it, as it wouldn't let me upload it otherwise), and amended the link in the Instruction Manual page. I'll check for any other links later - but I HAVE to go to bed now (it's 11am, and I'm sti...

Not in my version, sorry ;-) I'm using 1.70 for Mac OS X, and it's not there. I've also just downloaded the last 'official' version (1.65), and it wasn't there either. There's and RTF ReadMe, and the GPL license, but no OoliteRS.pdf I can't download the Windows or Linux distros either, as I won't be...

(Pseudo) Newbie post.

Hi there good buddies (especially Aegidian, Ahruman, anyone else who has a hand in Oolite development, and all .OXP creators). I used to play Oolite a few years ago, but stopped playing games for a while (dont know why really). The other day I was spending my lunch break in a newsagents, and saw a c...
