Firstly, thanks El Viejo for the planets, I'll put them together on a page for the pdf over the next week. Since you ask Pagroove , this is how I think the badges would work in the game. Firstly this is how the badge would appear in the Commanders' Profile screen. http://i989.photobucket.com/albums/...

By George, I think I have it :idea: (Thanks your postings.) It has been stated in various material, including the original manual, that the Cooperative is a unification of various other smaller power blocks. As part of the 'horse trading' need to make it work various trade-off were made so that ever...

Thanks for the information. I am now a little bit more enlightened. I would not expect for you folks to deal with my suggestion till post 1.74 since there are so many other more important features to be implemented and tested first.

Well now that the first daft version of the game manual is out for public review I figured I better get back to the T-shirt like I promised. So am I heading in the right direction with my coby3 revamp? http://i989.photobucket.com/albums/af19/KZ9999/NewCobby-1.png I know it doesn't match Griffs' but ...

I reckon that because Mr Gimlet is a blue frog, that mean his ancestors were a tropical species. Tropo' frogs whistle, trill, and even squeak, so he could have a whistling lisp with a raspy base reverb in the background. You know ClymAngus when you said that you might do steam punk instead, I sudden...

I'm sure somebody around these forums either has or knows someone who has a CNC milling machine... Did'ja know that you can build your own open source CNC machines. Google it and be stunned by the variety of them. (The EvilMadScientists.com Candy Fab is a fav' of mine. Think of it, sweet peppermint...

Well I stand (post :?) corrected then. I thought that might be the case but I you don't know unless you suggest these things. Perhaps A_C (or others) could you answer me this then. I did a bit of reading up on SAPI5 and found that the Microsoft code libraries for it are free for use. Add that Vista,...

Oolite Game Manual - W.I.P

Ring out the bells, fire the guns and roll out the barrels (preferably full of lit napalm to get that annoying Italian plumber <grrr.>) It's finished. The first draft of the Oolite Game Manual is finshed. :D <Sticks his hands in the air and waves like he just doesn't cares.> It's in HTML so everyone...

Would that be the 'Witch Space' site at mackayj.doosh.net. ? Unfortunately his site seems to have died and the paper models pages were some of the pages I didn't PDF print off the site. Dang! :x I've flirted with paper model craft in the past and it would be a good way of bring the classic ships to ...

Adding speach to PC-Oolite

One of the few things I envy the Mac for is that it's Oolite has speech. Well I think we can change it. Over the last few weeks I've been using a new text-to-speech system call eSpeak and I think it would be a good addition to the system. It doesn't use the traditional method of generating speech so...

I think that some audio dramas would be an excellent idea. May I suggest before attempting doing something as large the audio book of Status Quo , that we first try something more along the lines of anthology series. Tales From The Ooniverse , perhaps. Each a self-contained story of 15-30 minuets in...

A question on 2084004

Could someone please explain this to me as it's currently doing my head in. :shock: Oolite is supposedly set sometime around 3140AD Earth Standard, and the Galactic Date is 2084004. Assuming that the GCW system is counting as the number days since the GCW was founded, this means it has been around f...
