Financial Advice

It's been a bit since I've visited here, and I'm glad to be back. Anyway, I need some advice. I started a new game. Things were going alright, until I had a run-in with the ghost ship in which trumbles magically appeared in my hold. By the time I had dealt with the infestation, they had ruined most ...

NPC Ratings?

Is it possible to make an OXP that shows you a npc ship's rating along side their legal status? Does Oolite generate that data? I feel like it would add to the current depth of the game.

1.77 on PPC maybe?

Because of reasons I mostly play oolite on a PPC eMac running Leopard. It works fine if I don't add any strenuous OXPs, and would like to keep using it. However, I would also like to update to 1.77, which only runs on macs with an intel processor. So my question is this: Is there a way to run 1.77 o...

Re: Complete newbie - question

Interesting. I mainly run oolite on a mid-2000's ppc Mac, and thus only run 1.76 (1.77 only works on intel processors), so I am unfamiliar with the specifics of 1.77

Re: Complete newbie - question

You can, in fact, increase the speed of time. To do this (on mac anyway) you pause the game and push the right or left arrow keys depending on if you want faster or slower. It can go up to four times as fast. I often use this if I am in a hurry IRL, without fuel, and mass-locked. Just remember how m...

Re: Introduce Yourself.

You may not be happy with it now, but it seems like most of us find the cobra mk iii to be a superior ship (I know I do). It just needs a few upgrades.

Re: Ship Wishlist!!! :-D

I can see the perennial Oolite scale thing rearing its ugly head again here :( The Death Glider, at 28m long, is only just over half as long as an Adder (45m), and indeed is even smaller than an Orbital Shuttle (35m). In fact it would probably be more like a 1TC cargo canister in size 8) It also ha...

Thanks! Apperently it is just "Death Glider." The wiki did remind me of something, though. Death gliders don't have a hyperdrive/witch space engine. This would have to be ignored for an oxp.

Re: Ship Wishlist!!! :-D

I think it would be awesome to have a player flyable death glider (from stargate). Anyone interested?

Needs two front lasers if I recall correctly.

Didi you play Elite?

I never played Elite, as it was before my time, but I see that many people here have. I am curious as to how many Oolitists used to play Elite, and how many started on Oolite, so I made this poll.

Re: Military shields

I agree that the Naval Energy Unit is quite useful. Especially if you have a certain classified piece of equipment... that can be such a power hog sometimes!

Stargate OXP?

Is there someone who might want to make a OXP to add playable ships from Stargate? I am thinking the Goa'uld Death Glider and Cargo Ship. Because that would be awesome.
