Yes they were playing E:TNK!! I wondered about that, maybe Frontier Developments wasn't consulted?!

What planet would you target though?

I would make a backup copy beforehand though, just in case! ;)
Notepad is fine, as long as you turn Word Wrap off first!

The advice about backups is always correct though.

Probably you can reset the mission by editting your save file, but as to the specifics (and not having the mission OXP) I cannot say.

Re: Hello there !

For example, I noticed from the charts that galaxy sector 7 seems to be divided into two parts - so it would be logical to construct a deep space station connecting the two islands. Nope. (There are three lin...

Can someone make a better docking computer?

The standard Oolite docking computer works, but not very fast.

I can dock faster manually way faster than the docking computer!! But note not talking about instant-dock here though! ;)

Whats the biggest ship the player can fly?

Hi all,

What I would like to be able to fly is something on the lines of the Behemoth, or Navy Frigate?

Or is the biggest player ship the standard Anaconda?

Let me know so I can get the correct OXP!! :)
