Re: Alite is here

Gameplay is pretty much pure Elite (as I remember it from the BBC B) except for the allowance made for touch input. Docking seems a bit easier. The products available are pretty much the same, although I don't remember medical supplies from the original. I don't remember there being a tutorial on th...

Re: Ideally Imperfect OOniverse: Calibrated Hyperspace jumps.

How about having a fuel efficiency bonus for travelling to the waypoint (or a penalty for not doing so)? This wouldn't allow you to jump further, just leave you a little more fuel for afterburners or a second jump, once you get there. Incidentally, as I'm pretty much a newbie, is it just one wormhol...

REWInd Inc. Time manipulating devices

Had this idea while thinking of an SF justification for the scriptable pause or AutoPause device suggested by Astrobe. There could be a number of temporal manipulation devices within the game, of which Astrobe's AutoPause might be considered one. An Instant Save device could be considered another. T...

Re: Scriptable pause?

Buy the "Autopause" equipment Kind of breaking the fourth wall here a bit, aren't we? You could give it an SF spin by calling it something like the TimeFreezer, TimeStopper, or External Stasis device, manufactured by Relativistic Products Inc. or Relativistic Energy Weapon Industries PLC (REWInd PL...

Re: Add an engineering licence / roadside assistance career path

Thanks for the suggestions, Astrobe. The solutions for some/all of the jobs could be included or hinted at in the course book(s) mentioned in my initial post and maybe you could acquire more advanced text books as your reputation grows. When you reach certain levels you could possibly also hear abou...

Add an engineering licence / roadside assistance career path

Hi. I haven't scrolled through the entire list of suggestions, so I apologise if this has already been suggested. In the game (not sure whether in the core game or added by OXP) you can buy various licences, such as the Escort licence, which allow you to access a greater variety of missions. My thou...

Re: Unwanted re-routing

Thanks PKHB.

I think I just found that everyone's descriptions of the Advanced Navigation Computer sounded like the Advanced Navigation Array.

Re: Unwanted re-routing

Quick question: do the Advanced Navigation Computer and the Advanced Navigational Array (or possibly the Galactic Sat Nav) do essentially the same thing? The route colours are different but I have some equipment that does what you're all describing (unless I've misunderstood somehow) but I don't cur...

Re: [RELEASE] ILS Instrument Landing System v1.11

Hi. Thanks for your great work. You asked people to report which stations seem to cause difficulties. I seem to have problems with the ILS at some of the Octahedron stations. I just had to take over manually at one in Usanat in Galaxy 1 because ILS wanted to take me in at 90 degrees to the entrance....

Re: [PREVIEW] Save and Jump OXP

Hi!
I was interested in downloading this OXP but it no longer seems to be available from the link. Is it still available?

Thanks
