Re: What else did we play when Elite was king?

There are a couple of ZX Spectrum games that I still enjoy playing on my Speculator emulator... namely Starquake and Highway Encounter.

Re: The Oolite Saga

I've started reading "Status Quo" (54 pages in) and I'm loving it so far.

Re: February's Reading Month!!!!

I'm 44 pages into Drew Wagar's "Status Quo" and really enjoying it. I haven't read all that much other Sci-Fi recently but I did really like "Non-Stop" by Brian Aldiss when I read it last summer.

I have the ASC and the ANA but I've foolishly been trying to jump the furthest distance possible each time.

Well, I got as far as Beusior before I ran out of time on my delivery. I think I may stick to straight forward trading for a while.

Re: Is it just me?

Thanks for the tip Venator Dha. I do have a Wormhole scanner but I keep forgetting to use it. If I get low on fuel i usually do a spot of sun-skimming (if the bad guys let me get that far).

Re: Is it just me?

I have ECM & Fuel Injector fitted. I have a military laser fitted to the front of my cobby but only a mining laser to the rear. I think I should rectify this, given my current predicament.

Re: Is it just me?

I'm currently at a nasty little planet names Satiqu and trying to run a parcel to Zarece with very little time left. My current kill count is 54. No matter which planet I jump to from Satiqu there are hoards of assassins & pirates .

Is it just me?

Ever since I bought shield boosters for my Cobra MkIII I've had a hard time keeping myself alive. I seem to encounter far more hostile ships. Is the game designed this way or is it more likely that I just picked the wrong client/galaxy sector?

I can't imagine this ship lasting long up against a Thargoid Warship...

Who needs a flying car when they've got a Cobra Mk III (or better)? :wink:

Cheers,that's wonderful. I just wish that I wasn't too thick to work out how to get it into the game.
