Re: David Braben's Elite: Dangerous - Kickstarter!

When I backed Star Citizen in the back of my mind I did wish it was actually a new Frontier game....wish I'd done the lottery now too :)

I vote for Disembodied cover. It's excellent - draws you right in.

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

This article buggers up Einstein's Theory of Relativity...and makes my Physics lessons in school (back in the day) a complete waste of time! - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-15017484

Re: (WIP)ChupacabraHUD

That's a nice, compact display layout. My one comment would be that it might be better to have the energy display more central (as it's important information you need in a fight), and to sideline the cabin temperature and altitude readouts, as they don't change much during normal operations. I agre...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Poul, that's it. I'd just found it on my bookshelf after you posted....now I've got to ask a question. Arse. I don't actually read that much sci-fi funnily enough. Mind you, it's "Trivia" isn't it. Okay, let me think and I'll come up with a question tomorrow that'll get you all....for a few minutes.

Re: Asp Mark 2 Shapeways Model

that looks really nice actually. How much sanding does it need to smooth it all out? Also aegidian you might be iterested in this new free software from Autodesk - http://www.123dapp.com/ (it's a modelling app designed with 3d printing in mind)

Re: Tron:Legacy

I've just got myself a shiny new Blu-Ray player and this'll be one of the first films i get for it. I loved the look of it and the music was brilliant. Story was good - they could have so easily done a re-boot like everyone else, but instead they were brave to do a proper sequel which I really liked.

Re: Show and Tell (new ships/ ships in progress)

This one: http://www.marettcreative.co.uk/temp/asp_wip.jpg I actually went off the design and I started it back in the day without shaders and normal maps. You or anyone else on the boards are welcome to the .obj & textu...

Looks good Griff - quick question, how stupidly high is 'stupidly high' and, I take it, it'll still run nicely in the game.
