Re: Winter Sun

Cody said "Sharks, including great whites, are known to frequent those waters, but rarely inshore - or so they say." Who say? Here in Perth WA a few years ago, a bloke was standing in the water to his knees. Very popular beach. Shark took his shins and feet in one quick pass. Pulled from the water a...

Re: Winter Sun

The Cliffs are amazing.. But was the ocean warm enough to swim? Were the sharks big enough to make you think twice? Funny little thing. Palms like bananas are not trees. Just bloomin huge herbs. Ye parsley gone wild. Something to do with 'wood'. Always makes me smile. Try telling that to a coconut! ...

Re: Winter Sun

Yup it can get cold in the tropics. Mostly when there are good sized mountains to divert air flow.

But back to the palm in a storm. Bet the palm would stand longer than the pine against wind.

I envy you your imagination.

Re: Winter Sun

Er.. They aint palm trees. Maybe the wind blown one to the right? I've seen palms grow well in Scotland, even covered in snow.
Is it a case of stereotyping trees? :D

Re: Who owns the moon?

Silly Question! I own it. And every thing else within my sight. I just don't waste time having lawyers do whatever they think they are doing. If you live in the UK, think about it. Ever heard of a 'Compulsory Purchase Order'? The one that takes your hard earned ownership for slightly less than a son...

Re: Question for a totally new player

I think most of the answers are missing the point. Elite is a commercial game. Play them. And what is next? Buy the new update with new stuff? Oolite you update yourself. And maybe add to it. It just does not end. Try some of the missions. They can make you sweat a bit. Elite you become ELITE Oolite...

As far as I seen they were vipers with purple flashing lights.
Run or shoot was the only option.

Re: Game style

Not what I ment atall The game is getting too constructed. i.e. queuing for docking?? Competing with Elite? "Realizim?" I stripped it back to 80 for fun. still get a laugh shooting the station and taking the vipers out. Try that in your Cob3 But make sure you have military lasers or it will be a ver...
