Re: newbie questions

How many of these contracts do I have to finish before I get to the high class ones transporting gold etc? It seems a bit strange to transfer a cargo 10 or so planet jumps, and be rewarded not much more than what I get during 2-3 standard trade runs... Not to mention the fact that a Cobra III is som...

Re: Remove Equipment

Misteriously, it disappeared after a while. The OXP was something like Cargo Extension, a feature that allows you to compress the cargo to a kind of secret strorage and add some more to the normal 35t room. Well, problem solved... I sold it about 10 times without success, the next time I had a look,...

Re: New player, Elite Veteran

Ha!
Thanks. The two additional braces did it. Used Notepad++ already before...
And it's shipdata-overrides with "-" not "_"...
Found this in the original config folder.

Re: New player, Elite Veteran

In a text editor, type the following "cobra3-player" = { max_cargo = 100; }; if you want 100TC capacity. Save this file (named as shipdata_overrides.plist) in a folder called Config and place this in your AddOns folder Pretty simple instructions, hard to do anything wrong. I failed.. Anything wrong...

Remove Equipment

Hi there. I've tried an OXP which did nothing, so I removed it again. However, I bought some equipment of this oxp. Having removed the oxp, the equip stays with my ship... How do I remove this? The equipment list does not allow to sell anything. The sell-equipment oxp offers to sell this thing, but ...

Re: New player, Elite Veteran

Hey, thank's so far :D I had added a cargo.oxp in the addon folder with a cargo.js file - no mess up with the original core code. Did not work... I'll try the shipdata override thing. Regarding the question when better stop cheating... Yes, valid point, absolutely. In the past 30 years of computer g...

Re: New player, Elite Veteran

Well, I made it without the changed sound. The Military laser made all the difference. Reading through a lot of stuff here, I reckon that I was trying to hit far beyond my beam lasers range. Mostly harmless now, 10 kills... No success with some Basic Trials to manipulate the ships cargo capacity. On...

Re: Get Rich Quick

If money is a factor that counts, in fact I can not remember any game at all, where you do not have more than you could ever spend later in the game. You always start struggling in the beginning and end bathing in gold. Diablo II, Anno 1503 just come to my mind. Nothing wrong with that. You spend th...

Re: New player, Elite Veteran

The last atempts to do this with any savegame resulted in Windows preventing me from doing so due to concerns all data could be destroyed or s.th. like that. Wind95 was the last system I did this.
I like the idea of giving me some extra storage room beyond the 35t. :twisted:

Re: New player, Elite Veteran

Thank you all for the warm welcome :-) Yes, Elite was in fact far too easy, but hey, the perfect relief for a troubled 15 year old teenager I was back then. I always imagined being the high tech elite special trouper and it would be natural that poorly equipped pirates stand no chance. :lol: I'll ch...

Re: New player, Elite Veteran

It was around 1986, when I bought my C64 and soon thereafter began playing ELITE for endless nights. So, I’d say, I’m no beginner… I discovered and installed OOlite just yesterday, but already, I think about quitting. Earning money is still easy, enemy interference can be avoided. The ships handling...
