Would it be possible to have a space elevator, pretty please
technically it is possible with some kind of tether to a satellite in geosynchronous orbit, and probably would not be difficult to model at all, but at the same token it might be more in line with the technology of oolite/elite to go with a compromise of sorts and make it an anti gravity space elevator? less possibility of catastrophic failure, more possibility for adjusting aim to the end point? not sure, however on the artistic level it would eliminate the need for a cable texture, even if mechanically (game mechanics wise) there is a straight path from the ground to the end point.
i have no idea how it all fits into the lore, and i am sure there are those that want some sort of space elevator oxp, but for now that is something i will probably shelve until i am finished with the growing list of models i still have to do, and the textures, not to mention actually getting them in the game period (which tends to highlight bugs) so yeah...
