Someone needs to add the Venom to the Wiki. I would do it but I don't have a Wiki account.

Have requested one by pm to Winston but I've not had a reply yet.

However I have found that sometimes (about 1 in every 5 or 6 times) when you launch from the surface you sometimes crash on launching. Nothing you can do about it. That bug should have been fixed with the current version of PF. It's something weird relating to the trunk code for orienting from the ...

Re: Newbie here; frequency of Thargoid Occurances? PC-Oolite

So... for OOlite (PC)... in general what is the frequency of Thargoid attacks? Are any locations Thargoid prone? I believe the chance of one Thargoid warship appearing in a system is 3%. This increases to 10% in Human Colonial inhabited systems. Additional warships have a lower chance of appearing....

It does work. As stated before, I don't use System Redux, and Orbits gives me multiple planets in a system, and moves the sun further away.

I'm using the current 1.73 test version.

Found a bit more info on the Elite FAQ (found at http://www.nvg.org/bbc/doc/games/EliteFAQ.htm ): Cloaking / Masking Device ------------------------- Reports of a ship in a nearby sector which is fitted with some sort of a masking device. Destroy it. It is intermittently invisible to both radar and ...

You need to purchase the planet landing equipment first. ( I forget what it's called, but if you go to a sufficiently high tech planet it should be available as one of the things you can buy. ) As you said, you also need Heat Shielding and Docking Computers. Planetary Landing Capability is quite ex...

The Cougar did not exist in the Spectrum ship set. I know what it is. It was in the ST/Amiga (Mr Micro) version. I remember doing the mission. The ship disappeared and reappeared, usually hitting you with a pulse of high energy laser power when it appeared. Was difficult to destroy, but on its dest...

Searched Google for info on the Cougar. It appears that Ian Bell designed the ship. From his website I've gleaned the following info:

COUGAR
Size 70
Energy 252
Speed 40
Missiles 4
Max Loot 3t
Bounty 0.0

Hmm, have you had a look at this wiki page? http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Oolite_Missions Well that has spoilers, and doesn't list the missions in the correct order. I hadn't heard of the 'Cougar', so I'm quite intrigued, we've got a cloaked asp as far as I know! I must admit that I've only done...

Standard Missions

Thought that this BBS could do with a list of the standard missions (to help newbies to the game). Tried not to give away spoilers!! Let me know if I have made any mistakes. Trumbles - You get offered a trumble (tribble). No reward (??). Constrictor Hunt - Find and destroy the Constrictor. Rewarded ...

The Naval Energy Unit is rewarded upon completing the Thargoid Plans mission, which is the third mission.

The main thing I don't like about the HUD is the "aiming box", covers up the ships you are aiming at. Especially annoying when trying to pick off ships at long distances. The rest of the HUD is fine.

If the box could be replaced by a more standard cross hairs then it would be good.

However there is still a grey area at the bottom of the screen behind the default HUD. It's the 'nose' of the ship. The are different ways to get rid of these visual glitches - remodelling (probably the best), altering the view_position and weapon_position for this view or using shaders to flip the...
