Re: Cloaking device and Feudal States

I tried the Adder fix first, but it didn't pop up when I slugged out to the witchbeacon (I assumed it would be somewhere in the spacelane) and when I jumped out then in again I again got the notification but couldn't find it. So I quit, yanked the fix and coded up the Asp script instead, hyperspaced...

Re: Cloaking device and Feudal States

Yep, the OP's problem is nothing to do with me - I must have blown the original cloaked Asp out of the sky without noticing anything odd about it. The script fix has done the business; I tried the cloaked_adder OXP but, ahem, couldn't see the Adder anywhere :oops: although the message popped up to t...

Re: Cloaking device and Feudal States

Thanks! (Checking my commander's savefile, I see I "completed" the Cloaking mission without knowing it :headdesk: )

Re: Do It For Thysen

I can't claim credit for "Amnesty Intergalactic" - I have the Illegal_Goods.oxp to thank for that (and indeed the business at the end of the story). But this is based off an incident from recent play with a commander who is named Sutcliffe and whose ship I'd decided was named for the motto... but wh...

Do It For Thysen

Do It For Thysen emerged from witchspace into Latile system with thirty-five tons of cheap computers aboard and a clear run in to the Coriolis station, a welcome combination in her commander's book. She seemed to wheeze gently as he brought her up to full thrust and engaged hyperspeed - "Hyperspeed...

Re: How I discovered Oolite...

I toyed around with a HUD or two before finding one that I liked, but BGS is freakin' sweet and I'm impressed by how all this stuff is completely plug and play. Well, once you read the nice clear documentation about how you also need Cabal Common Code. And the Griff shipset and stations... wow! The ...

Re: How I discovered Oolite...

Dear God, when does the urge to download "just one more" OXP go away? 15 mods and counting, and that's not including the HUDs I've archived. :lol:

Re: Red dwarfs and Earth-like planets

Hmm... dwarfs does seem to be current for stellar objects. But I reckon it should be dwarves in normal usage. Wasn't Tolkien a high-brow professor of English language, and something of an expert in the translation of Germanic words? Tolkien certainly was a linguist. But as to dwarves, he explains t...

Re: [POLL] Career Elite Ranking

Deadly, I think, years ago on the Amstrad 464, and that was without having ever found the Constrictor Hunt mission (I may have always gone galaxy-hopping far too soon). Dangerous on Oolite.

Heh. Freud would have a field day with a dream about wanting to "dock" with a variety of "strange holes". :shock:

Those wacky Commies! Also, Oolite dream (it had to happen..)

So I've installed Commies.oxp and suddenly every other system I'm witching into seems to be Red. On one trip I notice the local cops have a spot of bother and I pitch in as I always make it a policy to help the local law whether I find them odious or not. We dispose of the counter-revolutionaries af...

Re: How I discovered Oolite...

Well, my grief over the poor Trumble has been tempered by OXPing like a boss today. I really like the Target Reticle and the Ore Processor, the Star Jellies are spectacular on first sight, and the opportunity to hand over illegal freight for the sake of being honest adds to the role-playing experien...

Re: How I discovered Oolite...

I killed my Trumble! :cry:

Yeah, I know it had to be done, but I didn't know I had to listen to the poor thing bleat in protest at the heat five or six times before it finally croaked. :(

Now I feel like a murderer. :cry:
