@ Disembodied (and Svengali): Only recently (read: right now) I had a look at the wiki pages about GalCop and the different government types , which is part of the Powers and Organisations page. The information found there support my view. I could have referred to them earlier, but I simply hadn't ...

Hi Magma, welcome to the boards! I'm not sure if I can be of much help (actually, that's not true: I'm positive that I can't be of much help :oops: ) but you might find some clues here . It does trail off a bit into general bad-mouthing of Vista but there might be something of use: see the first pos...

Hi FSOneblin, welcome to the boards! You get to another galaxy (actually, another region of the same galaxy, but that's beside the point) by purchasing and using a Galactic Hyperdrive , a one-shot device which will propel you to the next sector up. It doesn't use any fuel (all the fuel is contained ...

I think that makes sense... the various worlds themselves must make some sort of contribution to GalCop/Co-op, though. The more organised and economically successful the system, the more Viper patrols they can afford to fund and/or demand: hence the heavy police presence in Corporate States and Demo...

Also, try to get your ship serviced at a high-tech planet. The engineers can only repair what they're qualified to repair. If you've got, say, docking computers (TL9) and get your ship overhauled at somewhere TL8 or lower, the next time you visit a TL9 or above world, you'll find there's still a mai...

I think Commander McLane was probably asking what operating system you're using... OSX, Windows, Linux?

Just a small point in your line of thought: Maybe GalCo-op (as opposed to GalCop) I don't get you here. In all the literature and references we have these two terms are used interchangebly for the Galactic Co-Operative of Worlds (full title). I guess it's just an abbreviational confusion that some ...

It's not unreasonable to suppose that worlds with similar political organisations, e.g. the various Confederacies, might find it useful to band themselves together into a voting bloc within the Galaction Co-Operation (which, in reality, is probably about as co-operative as the United Nations is unit...

Cheers, Doc -- and thanks for producing a more tasteful furry lobster ad than I think I would have come up with. You've saved me from myself. :D

This, though, was inevitable:

Hi Svengali. I've been through your missiontext plist and I've done a small amount of editing, shortening the text where possible. I didn't do anything to the "\n"s as frankly I don't know what they are... :oops: I assume something to do with line breaks? Anyway, you can adjust these to suit if you ...

Hi Svengali. Regarding mission text, I and numerous other pedants people will leap upon any chance to suggest corrections to English usage. As for AIs etc., there are lots of members who can give useful advice. You can always paste up the AI code here on the boards if you want -- just place it betwe...

Thanks to Ramirez for giving the go-ahead for this ad -- and, indeed, for providing the central graphical element!
