Re: [RELEASE] Resistance Commander

The texture used the Python Commander is a bit boring: I did a quick re-skin.
If you want to do the same just replace oolite.app/Resources/Textures/python_redux with this (keeping the old file name of course)

Expansion download manager no longer works

I'm using the latest version of Oolite on a Windows 7 machine (64 bit) and since this version the expansion packs won't download. I get a message like unknown of unknown instead of the file size of the download. The download doesn't happen at all or fails, leaving this in the log: 02:01:05.939 [oxz....

Re: OXZ storage

Can someone tell me where the contents of OXZs added by the manager are stored, since theyre not in the AddOns or Resorces folders? I want to give the Aquatics ships the same re-skin I gave the OXP versions but I can't find 'em!!

Re: [Release] Adck's Behemoths Redux

What I would love to do would be to add the Imperial Stardestroyer to the forces of the Galactic Navy. I'd so like to see one in battle against a Thargoid Carrier. Is there a way to add ships from other OXPs to Naval forces?

Re: What type of new ships would people like to see as OXPs

I'd like to see more mystery ships/objects that behave oddly, look enigmatic and may or may not be hostile, friendly and may be dockable with unusual trade goods.....with no "spoilers" on the Wiki to tell you what to expect. Personally, I like a large variety of ships and favour designs with complex...

Re: unwinnable battle with the navy?

Not always: Quite often the enemy fleet has not yet arrived and if you follow the direction the Navy ships are pointing and floor it you can intercept them quite a distance away, But timing is crucial. Too slow and you'll wipe out your own fleet (Red faces all round!!), drop the mine too late and wa...

Re: unwinnable battle with the navy?

To make things easier for your Navy comrades, why not grab a quirium mine before you arrive insystem? As you arrive at the rendezvous, hare off ahead of your forces at full burn towards the enemy fleet making sure that you dump the mine just inside the cloud, and keeping the pedal to the metal, flip...

Re: BGS - The BackgroundSet

The only problem I have found with the new version is during the witchspace transit (which used to work lovely) just moments after the screen goes nearly white (which used to persist until you arrived in the new system) it now goes all dingy for a while instead. Just ruins the effect a bit. (I'm usi...

Re: Best All-round ship?

Having tried many core and OXP ships, my favourites are still the Dragon M (my first Elite commander flies one) and the B-Wing (Star Wars ships OXP). Both are quick, zippy and have plenty of missile slots, and enough cargo space to make a few extra dollars if bounty hunting falls a little short. The...

Re: A Humble Question. ... and maybe another.

One of my Commanders flies a slightly modded Anaconda (just too boring to play in otherwise). All I did was add a few missile slots in exchange for some cargo space: It's a big ship, and is otherwise a sitting duck for the most part. Commander HonestJohn is a principled trader and uses the extra slo...

Since I hate floating along at a snail's pace, I regard my Injectors as vital kit. Also great for Running Away!!!!!!
