Non-native speakers. We learn from books, we speak like books (or we try to, without even knowing it).

Re: Choosing an OS

Just have to keep an eye on the task manager because closing some Windows apps doesn't always remove them from memory Don't get me started on that topic... I think it's just that those applications believe they are so fracking important in your life that they think you mean "minimize" when you hit ...

Asteroid mining

http://www.asterank.com/ Random finding from Hacker News. It's funny how things come together sometimes. I am slowly elaborating a text adventure/roguelike/MUD game freely inspired from Elite; except the game world is our solar system rather than the whole galaxy, and humanity has to mine asteroids...

Re: Thunderbirds Are Back!

got several, thats not the problem. i dont like being forced to do something just to get to the home page. i would rather just pass.... I can understand that but on the other hand, I think it's merely a tool to measure interest and to make sure people that might be interested in it don't forget abo...

Re: Oolite: misjumpier

I don't really like the traditional roll the dice and see if you misjump to witchspace. To my liking that's too binary and you really just can't do anything about it. So to the original question about acquiring skill or different outcomes I really have nothing to say. But... What I would really lik...

Re: Laser Mount Switching System (LMSS)

Very neat idea but ... 15K Credits? I can't even afford it right now (Copperhead start). It would be very useful to mount a mining laser and, you know, get easy free credits "en passant". What about a more accessible price tag (say, 1500 Cr) for 1 TC less? The big price tag only hurts beginners; for...

Re: AI and 1980s computer games

There are saddos who "play" chess online by cranking up a program and playing under its name ... I'd kinda gathered that, which is why I only play chess against my own computer. As for AIs in online games - it's probably already happening, in one form or another. Yep, and online poker sites are tak...

Re: Bling

Here's a heretic idea. What if the game had an end? *Ducks for cover*. Seriously. Constant witchspacing could age the character so that the end would come sooner or later. Unless... You have ridiculous amounts of credits and are able to go through an expensive operation that would give you more yea...

Re: Bling

Hi! Party crasher here. I've noticed that the "money sink" theme is a recurring topic. It seems there are various ongoing efforts to solve this, some involving less 'fun' stuff like increased maintenance costs. I'd like to see 'solutions' that actually add 'tangible' things to the game for the money...

How to remove missiles from the game?

Hello,

Is there a way to remove missiles both for player and AI ships? Or maybe reduce their damage?
