Re: Oolite Darwin Awards

Timing is everything... Here's the proof... The other night I locked on to the docking buoy of a spacestation and thinking that I had plenty of time before I got close to it, I wandered off to the kitchen to put the kettle on. On the way back to my PC's desk I heard a massive crashing noise and retu...

Re: New player, Elite Veteran

That's the great thing about Oolite... with all the versatility of OXPs & OXZs - you can choose to play the game however you want. Personally, I have chosen to only install cosmetic changes such as BGS and the like rather than anything that actually changes the mechanics of game-play.

I've installed that one thanks Cody. It really makes the Ooniverse seem more alive.

Re: Possibly another dumb question...

It had...
<key>strict</key>
<integer>1</integer>
...in the save file. I changed the integer value to 0 and it's working fine now thanks.

Possibly another dumb question...

I have installed a handful of OXPs (Your Ad Here, extra ships etc...) but when I load my saved Commander profile, I lose all the added features. Am I right in presuming that I need to start with a new Commander in order to keep these recently added OXPs functioning?

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Packed my ship with foodstuff, jumped to Leesti. Arrived, turned on jumpdrive, 3 seconds later pulled out of it by a bunch of 6 to 8 beefed up Cobras and better. Took about 1 second til i was toast, couldnt even press the W button to accelerate away from them. Not the best 'new player experience' i...

Re: Is it possible to lock/unlock the mouse to Oolite?

It worked fine in "proper" full screen mode, but the I found I preferred keyboard control (a throwback to my speccy days I guess).

Re: Is it possible to lock/unlock the mouse to Oolite?

The mouse controls the cursor just fine on the menu screens. I did reconfigure the key definitions but I left Shift M well alone. I think that I have just realised where I'm going wrong though. I have been using the little "full screen" icon in the top right of the window rather than selecting "full...

Re: Is it possible to lock/unlock the mouse to Oolite?

I can't even get my mouse to work with the game, so it's strictly keyboard for me.

Re: Newbie asking a quick question

Hi Arbanax. I've only been playing a week or so and have had a few of the same problems as you especially the one about how to contact the station for landing clearance. I soon figured that one out but it took me a while to figure out that Lave is not a particularly safe place to return to. Its reas...
