Actually, the ambience in ED blows my mind out. Three months of play and I'm 'wow'-ing.

Re: 15KK CR in about two weeks

If you don't find the standard game challenging enough, why not add some of the many expansions? Add a war, an evil criminal organisation, or whatever else takes your fancy. Anyone can make money on straight cargo runs but you need a shedload of money to start with, or you can't afford the deposits...

Question: what do you mean by "proper" galaxy? Do you mean that your system doesn't work in some galaxies?
It works but requires much more time.

Re: Will Oolite survive with the release of Elite Dangerous?

Anaconda across the galaxy a very easy and a very boring thing. It would destroy the game balance. Some ships can have less than 7 LY of fuel, and some can have more than 7 LY, i.e. from 3 to 15. Anyway, the max jump 7.0LY is not changed. To destroy the balance you can use Fuel Tank oxp :-) Since O...

15KK CR in about two weeks

... playing for a couple of hours a day. I'd be VERY curious to learn how you earn a million a day in only a few hours a day. Ok, read carefully: http://www.iancgbell.clara.net/elite/text/ Just 6 hundreds of jumps required to earn 1mln in the standard game with max cargo of 35tons ! 600 jumps take a...

Re: Will Oolite survive with the release of Elite Dangerous?

Need to have a good variety of OXP's. Well chosen. Also do different things all the time. Yes, that's what I mean 'losing chess'. If I know the shortest way to the station, why should I do something different ? Well the game isn't a simulator so why would you expect it to really matter. If you adde...

Re: Will Oolite survive with the release of Elite Dangerous?

ED also suffers from the same flaw as F:E2 and FFE, in that bigger ships are pretty much better by default. In Oolite, you can have a small fast tough fighter vessel, like the Wolf MkII or the Muramasa. That's not correct. Viper in ED with a proper outfitting can defeat any ship. Moreover, smugglin...

Re: Will Oolite survive with the release of Elite Dangerous?

I know that ED has been Beta tested for a while now but do you think that the official release with see people flocking away from Oolite? I for one will be sticking with life in the Ooniverse. Oolite will definitely live - at the border of survability. Comparing with ED - playing oolite I can't rem...

Mass-lock effect

Why asteroids don't have such effect ? Another question - why hermits don't have such effect ? It is a bit strange, when the ship inside hermit, it does not impact on torus drive. But when it leaves hermit, the torus drive is locked. As I understand, asteroids and hermits have much bigger mass than ...

bgs without snoopers

Is there a way to install bgs but to somehow disable snoopers ? I find snoopers useless and annoying.

Re: Strange things with the game balance

Naval Energy Unit is a very high-tech item, so the chances of it being added to a ship for sale are fairly small. The Adder has twice the base chance of an Anaconda of having extra equipment, but even so the chance of any ship having it is low except at the highest tech worlds. Actually there are l...

Re: what if : nonlinear lasers and etc

Mining should be very difficult to use as weapon, ie. because of big cooldown and short range.
