Re: Didi you play Elite?

Like some others here, I played it on Acorn Electron. 32K machine and it did have limited graphics. i think sun's were there, but planets were lines only, no fill. No missions, thargoids and limited ships. Plus you were stuck in Galaxy 1, since there was a bug preventing jump to G2. ...but it still ...

Re: Stealth OXP

Many thanks!

I downloaded the zip, but won't run it since I've restored older game and this one always spawns the asterioid field ;)

Problem now is...i keep getting killed :twisted: Perhaps some tactical advise is needed. i don't want to restore the energy-bomb option.

Beeze.

Re: Stealth OXP

Ah...thanks Thargoid. I've read the other threads on this mission and (probaby too late now) started looking in the right places (i.e. away from the planet) etc. But nothing :( If you can write a, 'reset script' - fantastic, otherwise I will have to see if I've got a older saved game before I took o...

Re: Back after some years...advice and recoommendations

Thanks guys ;) I'm on the Stealth mission - the Galactic chart seems to indicate where I should go...so I'm en-route now! Will look at the other (G3) missions afterwards. I did find a Naval command centre on the way... ...manually docked and got offered some "Victory Bonds" (1000Cr per bon...

Re: Back after some years...advice and recoommendations

Hey! I'm in Melbourne these days too! How did you like the 38-39 degree days we had a little while ago? Hehe. Us "Poms" will never get used to it. I think it touched 41C ...which is just insane. I work in the CBD (central business district) and the heat radiating off the building made it ...

Re: Back after some years...advice and recoommendations

Many thanks. I'll check out the Boa ;) You are right, if I go down the OXP road for ships, I could get one that unbalances the game. I prefer to stay with the core game - unless otherwise. Yep, it was 31C here today...same again tomorrow ;) I like to the missions...but I wanted a "Elite"-l...

Back after some years...advice and recoommendations

Hi Folks, It's been a few years since I seriously played...but in linux, always saved my oolite backups ;) Now I've installed Linux Mint and re-loaded old saved game. Is there any recommended missions (I've done constrictor + Iconics - from memory). I've attached snaphot here (status). I've just add...

Re: My method

Last version of Galileo was 1.2.1. While playing it, I notices several small errors that asked for correction. So I uploaded versions 1.2.2 and 1.2.3. But still not the 1.3 that Galileo had in mind. Oh! I like the roadmap for 2.0 8) Yeah, I'm playing 1.2.3 Iconics. This last 200 kill mission around...

Re: My method

I've got down to 28 Gov ships left. I go straight to the B field, there is usually a baddie there. then fly to the station. There are usually some on the way. Right up to the station, sometimes even dock, though they kick you back out. but then it seems to encourage a spawn of baddies. Then I fly o...

You are not allowed to dock at Ramaza space station - even if you are "clean" (which I am). So I normally jump out to Zaria to dock and save ;)

Thanks for the tips! 8) Yeah, I've got the government fighter count down to 135. I'm just taking out the fighters mostly by myself - there's one or two Link/RLF ships around but there's not really any mega battles. I did get automatically ejected from the space station when I tried to dock. I dunno ...
