Background space and nebula WAY too dark

Hey all, I have a gtx460 with the latest drivers and the latest version of Oolite. How can I increase the background light and stars and increase their density? The space is WAY too dark and I think it may be a graphics card / driver issue ? I've tried gamma but that doesn't seem to help on stars an...

GRIFF ! When will all Oolite's ships be done ?

GRIFF,

Your normal mapped ships are amazing, truly. They are the best I have seen without question.

Do you have an ETA for the rework of ALL Oolite's base ships ?

Soon please :wink:


BTW - Mamba next, my favourite pirate craft.

Police not helping in the 'S' radius

Is it me or do the police in Oolite just not want to know if u get attacked inside the station radius? Many times I have been heading towards a coriolis and been inside the S radius (with clean status) and have been attacked by ships and NO police appear whatsoever, they all munchin' donuts :( Even ...

Questions on Overhauls and laser colours.

Hey Commanders. Please tell me ; 1. What exactly does a maintenance overhaul do? I've read the description but I wondered if your ship degrades over time slightly? Please explain this. 2. Do npc ships have different types of lasers ? (Pulse, Beam etc), And do the colours of the laser streaks denote ...

Trumbles, Oh Trumbles ! HELP please

They are lovely, but they breed like rabbits and eat my cargo and now they are all over the ship. I'm beginning to see them in my sleep.

How do I get rid of them ? Is there a nice way, i.e. in flow with the game ?

I don't want to edit any files if i dont have to.

Thanks in advance.

Solution ;

I've used the Omega drivers and now everything is perfect.

Better brains than mine will provide more help. That's what I'm doing - waiting on 1.73 as there is a problem with the precision roll/pitch thingy as well. Fine in 1.65, now I do without. Ok well now it's much brighter and some more 'stuff'. But alas, now I have the 'translucent square bug instead ...
