Re: Warehouse storage facility

The tapestry in New Cargoes would be a good one to store. Since there's only one world that wants to pay really big bucks for the thing, you could accumulate parts, collect them all before a galactic jump, then carry on with the process in the new system.

Or have I missed something?

Re: Star Trek ships? Planet Express freighter?

That's quite a fun little ship - managed to take out a Thargoid warship on my second flight, but got zapped by pirates on my third, so I'd say play balance is reasonably good.

Star Trek ships? Planet Express freighter?

Has anyone put any of the Star Trek ships into an OXP, or the Deep Space 9 station etc.? I haven't checked every OXP, there are just too many, but none of the short descriptions seem to fit. Also, ages ago I think someone mentioned working on the Planet Express ship from Futurama - did anything come...

Living in the future - Calendar shoot in free-fall

Re: Creative chain writing :"Dumb ways to fly"

"Think you're looking sideways when it's really aft
Try to drop a Q-bomb when you've fitted Safety Catch

These all are symptoms of a really dumb space jock,

Re: [RELEASE] SafetyCatch OXP v1.1

Just tried it again (this time the mine was the first on the rack), it froze as soon as I pressed the missile fire button.

Re: [RELEASE] SafetyCatch OXP v1.1

Finally used this in anger today - fighting three Thargoids, two fugitives and a load of Thargoid fighter robots in a dense asteroid belt, they thought they had me outgunned but insisted on following me when I ran. Got the lot! And I suspect would have fired the thing prematurely if it hadn't had t...

Strange but true

I got an email today with a header that began "Confirmation of your OOdals order"

Just for a moment I wondered if I was getting email from the Ooniverse, but of course it was actually a vendor on eBay.

Re: Where do I go from here?

What I'd forgotten is that this PC has a low noise low power consumption PSU, it turns out that a graphics card will push it so much that the manufacturer recommends replacing it. Which means I'd be paying at least 40-50 pounds or more to get the speed boost, really can't convince myself it's worth ...

Just out of curiosity, has anyone done a Lego spaceship OCX for Oolite? Can't recall one.

Trumble / Tribble confusion

I was just looking at the Wikipedia article on Tribbles and noticed that someone had said that there were Tribbles in Elite.

Am I right to think that even in Elite's earliest days these were Trumbles, not Tribbles? I've edited the article accordingly, but if I'm wrong it will need to be changed.

Sounds more reasonable - and people like things more if they have to pay for them.

Re: Anaconda with Naval Energy unit

Um... well, I suppose there's no accounting for taste. I prefer the Boa Cruiser - sweet fast ride, maneuverable, 175 tons cargo, five missiles, and it can take a lot of damage if you've got a NEU and military shields. The Cobra is fun too, but fast beats big any day, as far as I'm concerned.
