Not sure which one you are referring to, although I imagine it would be the reddish one in the asteroid field. If my guess is correct, then here you go: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwG6R5 ... sp=sharing

The original was taken in a 1080x600 window, so it's not terribly high res, but at least it's in png format.
That's the one, yes.. many thanks! Lovely pic!
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

I followed this pack of hunters en route to Labiar in the third octant. The lead ship and the Gecko flew sedately, but the pilot of the sidewinder would suddenly decelerate whizzing past me and, just as quickly, hit the thrusters and zoom past his companion.

Yeah, following packs, whether they be hunters, bandits, or even escorts, can be good fun. I like to watch them mock-jousting with each other.

You gotta steer it through hyperspace too - get it wrong and bang!

Nice! Have you tried [EliteWiki] Camera Drones? Handy for getting good pics, is that.

Hi Cody! I read about them but I forgot to buy and try them out. Indeed it would be nice to have more control over the camera angles.

As if Oolite wasn't addictive enough by itself? ;)
