Re: What are the 'old' commanders doing nowadays ?

<blinks in the beautifully rendered sunlight of the friendliest forum this side of Riedquat> I'm still around... I lurk more than often, catching up on posts and checking that you are all behaving. ;-) I still spend most of my "Elite" based time in ED, sadly, although I do play NMS and a little Star...

Re: Tionisla Orbital Graveyard 2.0

As I said on the original TOGY thread about two mins ago, well done on the new version. Looks good.

Did anyone put a new Lancet model together?

Re: Space Travellers Guild

If you look deep enough into certain websites maintained by certain people who helped develop Elite you will no doubt see contradictory statements. I do remember reading a Braben quote saying that he used to RP Traveller. And I _think_ I remember one of them saying that the planetary government type...

That makes me sad.. I hope it someday comes to pass.
Never say never.

And thanks for the welcome back... Like I said, I've lurked for a few years, but probably missed LOADS. ;-)

Re: Elite Encounters: The Elite Dangerous RPG

Er. [taps mike]. Is this thing on. [brushes the dust off this topic] Er. I just wanted to say, this Elite Encounters thing. It's finished now. I released it a couple of weeks ago in PDF format. It's pretty good. Feel free to grab a copy from my online store. https://daftworks.co.uk/store. If you lik...

Is that from a book?
Yes. One that I haven't written yet. And probably never will.

It's from a hundred or so text files in a folder on a memory stick. Just one of many unwritten Tales Of The Elite.

Re: What is regarded as canonical in Oolite history

<blinks in the bright starlight> I lurk. Every now and again I pop up and gaze in awe at the amazingness that is the Oolite forum. Where it all began. Where I found out I wasn't alone. Ahem. Yes, the canonicity of Elite, Oolite etc... I think the official line from Frontier is that there IS no offic...

Re: Thoughts on technology

Interestingly, 3D printing seems to be an exception to the rule. It's a new, emerging technology that has components that collectively come to about the same amount as the full unit. Example is the 3D Print and Create magazine collection. 2 years worth of magazines and parts to build a £700 3D print...
