Re: PLease add more functions available in the joystick buttons options menu.

Thats why you should be able to map it on a right button. For example a farthest one from the fire button. And also some joysticks are called HOTAS for a reason. BTW i`m speaking not only about "facing the station right before yourself", but rather "reached the edge of S-zone after the long travel (...

Re: PLease add more functions available in the joystick buttons options menu.

just a thought but people could just use JoyToKey that would enable them to map all their joypad controls to keyboard functions. Its what I use for a lot of games that don't use controller support(I use it for Minecraft for instance) Of course, people could use joy to key and similar programs, but ...

Re: Oolite FAQ - New Forum Members Please Read......

Today i`ve jumped to Zabeso as the closest high TL system, for having the overhaul maintenance. I didnt carried any parcels just a cargo to sell. soon after the jump i`ve been attacked by a pirates. Standard cargo for your life thing. But the police patrol was nearby so they had joined the fight too...

Re: Core game money earning

Its hard to aim while reversed controls. Only as a last measure against the ECM hardened missile but in any other cases its much easier to just turn around and fire front laser than to fight backwards.

Re: The Oolite chatroom

i`ve seen some s--t right now. 3 thargoid warships were attacking the station and it was burning. When i killed the saucers their robots stopped in space and became a cargo (everyone around except the cops begun to pick it up). Could they really kill the station? And what if they did? An empty syste...

Re: Core game money earning

Oh and BTW can i use the mining laser as an anti-missile defence too? I`m planning to install it backward. So when someone fires the ECM-hardened missile i`ll just switch the view and shoot it.

Re: Core game money earning

Deep Space Dredger I`m playing the core game now, no oxps (i wanna do it the original Elite way but not being locked to just Cobra 3, since it the OOlite not Elite). Maybe later, but before that i need to earn a money for (probably) a boa cruiser or another decent fight-and-trade ship. Fully equipp...

Re: Core game money earning

<nods> And your courier rep may drop even while you're carrying a parcel - delivery is what counts. In the core game, I reckon the courier business is the fastest earner - but you gotta grind first. Kinda sadistic gameplay mechanics then. But i never failed a single delivery, if i wasnt sure that i...

Re: Core game money earning

Yes for both? Do i need to constantly carry something just to not let my rating drop? If so, i`d better look for another earning method like pirate hunting or trading.

Re: Core game money earning

Contracts are to do with reputation , so make sure they are on time and the offers should improve. Good luck. I dont know the mechanics of this process. Does my courier rating stocks up little by little with every delivery made in time, or it degrades over time when i`m not carrying anything and fo...

Core game money earning

Hi. What is the best way of making money in the core game? Especially for just the cobra mk3, because any ship i can afford now is worse than it and i cant afford any ship which is better. I`ve tried the parcel delivery contracts but still they need more experienced courier, and the highest price i`...

Re: Oolite FAQ - New Forum Members Please Read......

I had the least mid-maintenance period when i`ve got hit by 2 or 3 missiles(not in a row of course), then i`ve crushed the escape pod, then i`ve got rammed 3 times by the ships, who were after the same cargo i was collecting. My shields never were empty, but the fuel prices gone high. And there was ...

Re: Oolite FAQ - New Forum Members Please Read......

Tell me please which actions or events leads to the maintenance overhaul being required? Afaik its the colliding with other ship or cargo container, but sometimes i see the fuel cost`s grow just by itself. What should (and should`nt) i do to maximize that maintenance intervals?

Re: PLease add more functions available in the joystick buttons options menu.

Happy new 2019 year!

It will be good if the same button but

1. If docking computer is present when activate it
2. If not. then just request for a permission.

But the best if any in the keyboard options menu could be mapped on the joystick buttons too.
