The first, but not the last

Since I help start this thing, it's only fair that I put up the first, of what will be several submissions.... http://www.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/f1b79a6afa.png I know I've gone overboard with the highlighting filters and it won't scale down that well but just an idea to get you other talented ...

just sticking a stirer in the pot

There's small side issue that might be worth thinking about, the ownership of the background details. When you look at the orginal games, all the background details such as the GCW, witchspace, all the tech' details of the ships, etc, came from the manual and novella. Mr B&B own the information that...

Latest update on the rank, mainly bit of fine tuning on the designs by adding a blurred black boarder around the shapes with a alpha channel of 75%. I feel that it improves the images greatly.

Ahruman Will you need the pirate symbol still? The only time it's seen is in use to show the ranks. With new unique ranks symbols, is there a need for it. It’s used for a few unique ranks, notably Winston’s . It’s also used for the ranks - Banned - and Thargoid, but I’m not sure whether those are u...

I second the request for competition. I would love to see other peoples takes on a figurehead/logo for the game. I just started doing the classic starbird because of my own need for a vector version of the logo. There's no reason why the oolite logo should even be the starbird. The way game is expan...

Re: Here's something to hold you for now.

I have put both Scalable Vector Graphics and Encapsulated Postscript version of the two above images in this zip file along with the original Inscape enhanced SVG file and a reference PNG. Hmm, I'm getting an empty file when ever I try and down load this and unzip it. Any chance you could check it'...

The plot of my Trident Down mission OXP is entirely based on the fact that Galaxy 4 seems to consist of just four government types... Well that's me told :lol: That's what I get for spending all my time in the un-oxped version of oolite for the manual project. I haven't played my expanded set-up ve...

They could be disputed territory which there is a constant propaganda war and constant 'terrorist' attacks. Or it could be neutral territory where the power blocks officially play nice but wage a war of espionage. I think losing they worlds would be a big mistake and make the galaxy imossible to pl...
