Re: First kills

When your ship is in bad shape, leave the main space lane where most of the traffic is, and cruise in parallel to the safety of the station. Unless you have deep space pirates installed, of course :twisted:

Re: Oolite 2.0 or II

I quite like the idea of "Pirates!" in space. When you start the game you select a combination of allegiance and time period which impacts the difficulty, you can get good standing with more than one faction depending on your behavior, the world and its events unfold around you, ...

Re: Weirdness with 'quotes' in BB posts

Smivs you are probably right, I just logged in in a rush, saw the topic being reported by someone as not belonging to Discussion and moved it right away without thinking too much about it. There is of course the point of view that Discussion refers to discussion about the game itself, so I guess bo...
