Re: Randomshipnames.oxp v 1.4 released

You're free to personalize your copy. :D (I am personalizing a lot of the OXPs that I download myself. :wink: ) Speaking of which :wink: I'd like my copy of this oxp to have a dependency on having a bounty scanner equipped. It would give me another reason to buy the thing in the first place (i.e. t...

Re: RFC: re-squared-dux ...

There really should be a wiki page for Simon's re2dux OXP. [wiki]Re2dux_Ships[/wiki] - not so long, please expand it if you can. Nice to see them finally having a visible presence on the wiki. Now when this thread's not so active, new players will be more likely to find them. If I could install onl...

Re: Screenshots

Well done Malacandra! I've only ever got as far as dangerous... I hate you :cry: (just kidding :D) I can't seem to find this texture I'd been using for my extra planets thing, so this might be it's only appearance for some time... http://i1365.photobucket.com/albums/r742/stevensemail/34b0ac71-ace6-4...

Re: Show and Tell (new ships/ ships in progress)

Redspear: Your models remind me of the sprites I used to design on my C=64. Lots of bas-relief to emphasize the shape. I like them a lot. So that's what it's called (I genuinely didn't know :oops: ). I'm glad one of us knows what I'm doing :lol: Thanks for the encouragement :) Meanwhile, I can't de...

Re: New ships under development

...These ships are extremely fast for their size and invariably have ECM Systems (this was originally a Thargoid invention to counter Navy missiles, subsequently copied by the Navy from captured Thargoid ships ). Additionally, most Thargoid battle ships carry a few small remote- controlled ships, e...

Re: Rock Hermit Beacon

You give me too much credit, Redspear. Griff did all the grunt work. All I did was lighten up some textures so they looked better without shaders. Maybe so but you did it well... I can model simple Elitey type craft and texture them, but my real handicap is a good working knowledge of Javascript. P...

Re: Griff's normalmapped ship remakes

Just now behind 10 other ships waiting to dock and using Cim's camera drones viewing from the dock master's position. Griff, it would be really cool to see at least one guy in a spacesuit inside the dock as a maintenance person, say in the pit you created for the Coriolis docking bay. Ooops, The St...

Re: Show and Tell (new ships/ ships in progress)

That's one explanation.. :mrgreen: :twisted: the other is that I noticed something going on in the cockpit of of one of Cody's posted screenshots, so I zoomed in for a better look, and found I really had seen what I thought I saw.. :wink: Blimey! Just him and his cat :shock: ...I daren't look :lol:...

Re: Show and Tell (new ships/ ships in progress)

Well heck.. so do Griff's ships.. they're even lit from within, and in at least one case, if you look very closely, you can even see what appears to be a suggestion of a pilot in a chair inside.. so I don't think what you've done is particularly controversial.. :D Griff's stuff is amazing, as has b...

Re: [POLL] When did you last play Oolite?

Will probably be forced to do some playing anyhow if only for testing purposes. Yep, that sounds like my experience of the game for the last year or two :roll: but it is fun tinkering with stuff :D There's a whole Uni Ooniverse at my fingertips :twisted: :P Ha good to be back.

Two excellent looking ships, Redspear! Nice work.. 8) Thank you :) I've done another but this one might be a bit more controversial... Really? Why? It's still got that legendary Krait look about it.. but now with some nice detail-work. Well, I've emphasised the... 'cockpit' (gasp! :shock: )... whic...

Re: Rock Hermit Beacon

Thus I could agree to the following: Rock Hermits get beacons once the player has docked with them . This will enable the player to re-visit a hermit whose location is already known to them. Sounds good to me. Nice idea :) Think I'll just stick to what I do best (playing the game) and leave the OXP...
