Re: Didi you play Elite?

I'm sure this question comes up every couple of years! And my answer is the same; I started with Elite on my trusty ZX Spectrum 48k, replete with LensLok... ...yyyeessss... but even that couldn't put me off playing day and night until I reached Elite. Thing was, I was already 36 when all that starte...

Re: Introduce Yourself.

[rant] It's amazing how we take things for granted. I come from the generation that first computed using punch cards and paper tape, working with physically huge machines with very little ability.

Re: Screenshots

@ Frame - That's an interesting looking ship on your photobucket account - it looks remarkably like a nicely modelled version of the IDA Frigate from EVNova ...? Any chance of an Aurora Cruiser?

Re: New to the forums and new to Oolite.

I was not saying that EVN was no longer in existence, but remembering a great deal of fun that occurred in being involved in the cooperative writing of a fictional story based on characters abstracted from the EVN storyline. Dan was a particularly enjoyable contributor to that time, and it was with ...

Re: New to the forums and new to Oolite.

I did visit the EV Nova site recently, out of nostalgia...
