Re: How often do you get your ass handed to you?

I'm currently running the military fiasco mission and have found myself taking to the escape pod about once a day on average. I don't have too much trouble taking on one or two of the mission ships, but when I come across 3 at once one of them always manages to get on my tail and wipe me out - I thi...

Re: The Speed Of Light isn't the universal speed limit after

The theory of relativity states that as you get closer to the speed of light, the amount of energy required to accelerate increases exponentially, so to reach the speed of light you would need an infinite amount of energy. However, since it has been established that time is elastic, it may be possib...

Re: The Speed Of Light isn't the universal speed limit after

The thought has occurred to me that maybe these particles aren't travelling faster than the theoretical speed of light but that light itself actually travels slower than the "speed of light" due to being acted upon by some outside force (Dark energy or some such?) Therefore the universal speed limit...

Re: The Speed Of Light isn't the universal speed limit after

The trouble with this is that the speed of light is so incredibly fast and the distance the beam is being sent is relatively short, so the time difference is so small as to be easy to write off. Perhaps if there was some way to measure the speed of these particles against normal light over stellar d...

Re: [RELEASE] Accessories v2.0

Will all the pretty stuff still work without shaders or will I have to wait for my graphics card to arrive before it's worth installing?

Re: Constrictor hunt more hints problem...

Are you actually flying to the systems you're checking, or just looking on the map?

Incidentally, I didn't get a decent look at the constrictor before, I kept well away and blasted it from distance :(

Re: Elite Ratings

I could see the addition of just 2 more ratings to smooth the career path out.

Extremely dangerous - 1024 kills
Lethal - 4048 kills

Elite Ratings

I'm sure a few people will disagree with me since it's such a core part of the original game, but I can't help feeling there's too big a gap between some of the Elite ratings. When you start your rating changes fairly quickly but it isn't long until you reach a plateau where you need to rack up thou...

Pylons

With the large number of OXP-added missiles and pylon-mounted goodies and the low number of spaces available on the average ship, what you choose to mount can have a significant effect on the outcome of a battle and gameplay in general. With that in mind, I was wondering what people here choose to l...
