Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

Just now behind 10 other ships waiting to dock and using Cim's camera drones viewing from the dock master's position. Griff, it would be really cool to see at least one guy in a spacesuit inside the dock as a maintenance person, say in the pit you created for the Coriolis docking bay. Ooops, The St...

Re: Show and Tell (new ships/ ships in progress)

That's one explanation.. :mrgreen: :twisted: the other is that I noticed something going on in the cockpit of of one of Cody's posted screenshots, so I zoomed in for a better look, and found I really had seen what I thought I saw.. :wink: Blimey! Just him and his cat :shock: ...I daren't look :lol:...

Re: Show and Tell (new ships/ ships in progress)

Well heck.. so do Griff's ships.. they're even lit from within, and in at least one case, if you look very closely, you can even see what appears to be a suggestion of a pilot in a chair inside.. so I don't think what you've done is particularly controversial.. :D Griff's stuff is amazing, as has b...

Re: [POLL] When did you last play Oolite?

Will probably be forced to do some playing anyhow if only for testing purposes. Yep, that sounds like my experience of the game for the last year or two :roll: but it is fun tinkering with stuff :D There's a whole Uni Ooniverse at my fingertips :twisted: :P Ha good to be back.

Two excellent looking ships, Redspear! Nice work.. 8) Thank you :) I've done another but this one might be a bit more controversial... Really? Why? It's still got that legendary Krait look about it.. but now with some nice detail-work. Well, I've emphasised the... 'cockpit' (gasp! :shock: )... whic...

Re: Rock Hermit Beacon

Thus I could agree to the following: Rock Hermits get beacons once the player has docked with them . This will enable the player to re-visit a hermit whose location is already known to them. Sounds good to me. Nice idea :) Think I'll just stick to what I do best (playing the game) and leave the OXP...

A new take on an old ship (even though it's In Service date isn't for another thousand years or so :wink: )... http://i1365.photobucket.com/albums/r742/stevensemail/nfdl1_zpsaeccc6cf.jpg This was my first play with Wings3D, and indeed with any form of 3D computer modelling.

Re: Progress

There's already too much consistency, I think, between different locations in the game; I'd prefer a greater range of look and feel across different stations, system types and tech levels. Very much agree with this. <heresy>It's what stopped me playing Elite in the end: systems were just more or le...

Re: SoloTek Industries

Other than that I find Simons take on the classics quite interesting. He's also done two of the best takes on the, rather tricky, Fer-de-Lance (IMO). The Neolite one might be a bit radical but it looks like it would fit the role very well, and his re2dux F-d-L is the one that best captures the feel...

Re: Progress

As a matter of fact, I've made an OXP to that effect: [wiki]Stationrotation OXP[/wiki]. And very good it is too :) Of course we don't want a game with all the challenge removed, but I'd argue the proper place for it is combat and trading, not a somewhat peripheral activity like docking. I'm incline...

Re: Progress

Firstly, some context for my opinion... I played Elite on the Speccy in the 80s and I remember my early flights struggling towards Zaonce (I bought slaves in those days :twisted: ), feeling the thrill of getting to the station, heading past it towards the planet, only to smash into the front of the ...
