Have to admit I had a fully functional pirate copy for the BBC. Had to rig that too for night time silent running thus allowing gameplay in to the small hours without disturbing inhabitants (ok Parents then)! Oolite is a wonderful recreation of the original, though sadly my stamina says now I must s...

:oops: I am running anarchies. I didn't know this chappie turned up twice. So this raises a further question. Do I need to run the renegade Viper OXP? Maybey this was one of the needles in the haystack causing me slow running problems and frequent crashes. I'm slowly making my way through the OXP pi...

Wierd things happening

Wierd event 1. On mashing a Bandersnatch a nearby police ship thanked me for assistance and cleaned my offender status!
Wierd event 2. I got attacked by a renegade viper. I'm not even running this oxp :!:

Another solution is to complete the Thargoid Plans mission. Thus paying me with a NEU. Iron butt complete with no need to change ship! Will want to upgrade to a faster ship for later missions though, so will wait and see if 1.71 irons out this blip. Meantime it's back to bashing pirates.

Stuck with this lump of a ship

Well it's not so much a lump - it's a python class cruiser. It also kicks plenty pirate bottom too. However I have a catch. I can't buy another ship. The game crashes every time!

Reaching 256 kills should trigger the constrictor mission. One thing to remember with a trumble is. Buy it and Fry it! Oolite is a great way to kill dead time or pirates - infact anything with a dodgy criminal record to add to your kill count, which improves your rating. Wonderful game, many kudos p...

Anyway, I think Oolite is still the best! 8) You are spot on there. Thanks for the heads up on OXP'ness(mess). I've removed all the big OXP's for the moment. I'm in G2 having just completed Ionics. I'm not sure other than Thargoid Wars (removed) what else interferes in G2. Looking to move on with L...

Took a long time trying to sort all the OXP's out yesterday. Went to the wiki site and downloaded a complete set of fresh OXP's. Please note there appears to be a problem with the Tiger OXP zip file on the wiki site- Random hits also flashed up a problem on loading the game (currently removed) I che...

Slow gameplay

I'm suffering with very slow gameplay and frequent shutdowns. Using 1.70 with a lot of OXP's. Game is looking better than ever and I'm enjoying the new crafts/missions ect.. I'm thinking that having all these OXPS's installed is the problem, I've been to the Wiki to download the latest/new OXP's. An...

Well I've been running 1.70 for a while now. All the event logs have vanished, which is good. However gameplay is very slow and often the game just exits, which is annoying. I'm running pretty much all the OXP's I suspect this is the problem. I've been to the Wiki to download and update my OXP files...

Call me slow, but what is UPS? Apart from of course a worldwide parcel delivery service. Mind I have my hands full with three OXP missions running atm. Ionics (which I'm close to finishing for the second time), Military fiasco (ditto) and Thargoid wars. Which is making the game very interesting idee...

Long lost commander finds flight console

Been away for a bit and wanting to know what's new in Oolite. I had installed 1.70 before all hell broke loose. Any new missions or installments I should know about? URLs would be helpful. Many thanks.
