Re: Two remarkable dates

What impressed me, and not necessarily in a positive way, is how the moon landing was politicized. Then there was this which I heard for the first time watching a PBS program this past weekend: "When you're finally up at the moon looking back on earth, all those differences and nationalistic traits ...

Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970). Destruction by nuclear holocaust.
"In one of the countless billions of galaxies in the universe lies a medium-sized star, and one of its satellites, a green and insignificant planet, is now dead".

Re: SW HUD

Pitch, roll and yaw gauges integrated with space compass. We have separate full scale pitch and roll gauges in default HUD, occupying two lines on right group, but these indicators are almost useless for navigation and combat. How often you are really using it? Waste of space (like bobbleheads)! I ...

I am going to trust the intelligence ... but I will say this: my intelligence people, if they said in fact that Iran is a wonderful kindergarten, I disagree with them 100 percent.

Two Questions

1) Why is shift "h" not dumping target state to the log? I'm running Oolite deployment 1.88 and the key is present in my custom keyconfig.plist.

2) What are all valid Oolite scanClasses?

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

Where does the escape pods go, when they`re released from the cargo bay? I`ve took the Slaves cargo from the dead pirates, then released them. Then i saw one cargopod with them and one escape pod heading somewhere... Escape pods are not released from the cargo bay. But when you scoop cargo pods the...

CaptSolo, is your ultralight version available somewhere online?
Not at the moment. I could PM you a link if it is okay with Spara.

Re: Random Hits OXP

For my personal enjoyment, I modified RH 1.4.18 to produce an ultra-light version. Not into hit jobs anymore but Griff's space bar is a logical addition to the game. Posting to thank you, Spara, for the script you provided elsewhere that brings back the market for older OXP's.

Re: Quote of the week!

It should have been obvious - I thought it would be obvious - but I would like to clarify, just in case it wasn't. In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't." The sentence should have been: I don't see any reason why I wouldn't - or why it wouldn't be Russia. So ...

...I think one iteration of Elite had 'Robot Slaves' which one assumes had AI.
Robot Slaves comes from the 8 bit NES version of Elite. More of a 'Politically Correct' move than an introduction of AI to the game. Ian Bell thought highly of the NES version.

OT: My avatar also from NES Elite. :)

Re: Game style

Slower reflexes and arthritic hands mean I can no longer do combat... I find that hard to believe, señor. I am afflicted with the same conditions and, as you know, I've always been a keyboard pilot. I find using my hands actually improves the stiffness in the knuckles somewhat. I still enjoy a good...
