Re: First experiences / difficulties

I think, a kind of indicator of how the enemy ship is doing (% energy left), perhaps included in the crosshairs, would prevent new players from getting the impression that NPC ships are immune to the weaker lasers (that's what happened to me). But it would also be a bit unrealistic, as the remaining...

Re: First experiences / difficulties

Yeah, it goes down for back-up every night for an hour or so. Ok, then I seem to hit that hour almost every night - quite possible since it is 3:00 AM in Germany... Sounds like you're getting into the game, anyway - cool! Definitely, yes. But I was kind of in it from the beginning and that's why I ...

Re: First experiences / difficulties

With these I finally can destroy ships, although they still can survive impressive salvos that would have pulverized Thargoids on the C64 version . The laser range seems to be the full r...

Re: First experiences / difficulties

Just out of curiosity, are you playing the game in vanilla mode (no OXP's) or have you already installed some mods that might increase NPC ship difficulty? I installed only one OXP, reverse control, because I'm used to it from the C64 version. I can't use it yet because I have no rear laser, but th...

First experiences / difficulties

Hi Everyone, I'm new to Oolite - I installed it some days ago - and of course I'm new to this forum. I'm from Germany so please excuse spelling and grammar mistakes! 30 years ago, Elite was one of my favourite games for my C64, and it still is. I became really good at it and because trading becomes ...
