Reskinned Commies Station

Just flown by a station I re-skinned, from the Commies OXP - the first time I've successfully applied lights. I love the OXP but the stations are beginning to look too basic compared to some of the gorgeous new Griff and Pagroove stations. Still wanted an austere, utilitarian look. http://img.photob...

The unbearable flightless of B-Wing

I've updated OXPs etc and now there's only one snag.....My Commander Jagger's beloved B-Wing isn't working! All my other player ships are fine including the Star Wars X-Wing, but the B-Wing shows just a big spinning question mark. It says the OXP isn't loaded but it's there. How will Jagger finish T...

Re: High velocity / High density projectiles gun

It could be done the same way as a plasma cannon, surely, firing metallic bits instead of glowing balls?

Re: Galactic Navy Strikes Back

I always thought it would be nice if a Behemoth could somehow acknowledge or reward you when you have defended or fought in battle alongside it: Maybe offering cheap fuel/repairs.

Re: How many people use the Fuel Tank OXP?

I should add that one of my Commanders, Honest John, flies a (slightly modded) Griff Anaconda to which I added an extra couple of missile slots - which he devotes to fuel tanks. It makes that otherwise boring cashcow ship fun to fly. It's still a lumbering brute in a fight, but you can cover space a...

Re: How many people use the Fuel Tank OXP?

I hate being left with no drive fuel!! I use them especially when I have long hauls to make such as for missions when you need to jump to systems at the edge of your 7ly range but still be ready to outrun large groups or enter a big battle when you arrive, basically when you know you'll need to use ...

Re: Antiubericity

What I really like about this game is the flexibility it has. If I want to kareen around like a madman blasting everything there are OXPs that can help me do that. If I want more of a challenge I can drop some and start a new game trading precariously in an Anaconda. I play it both ways and shades i...

Re: nasty and deadly

Those darned Corsairs!!! Not only do they have nasty twin lasers, but get near them and the plasma turrets open up on you. And Simon Bridge's pesky little Wetas - the unkillable little buggers! You hit and you hit 'em and bits keep coming off (and it's not easy since they're so little and zippy) and...

But wouldn't it be possible to create a really large extra planet and texture it like those SOHO pictures to create what looks like a binary system? And did I read recently that it will soon be possible to add glows to planets too?

there are only Thargoid ships flown by Thargoids, or destroyed Thargoid ships, but never has a Thargoid crew surrendered their ship. So where would any GalCop pilot get a Thargoid ship from???) From the salvage vessel I sold them to, maybe! Quirium-mine a Carrier and it will dump out Thargoid Invad...

My Commander Jerk traded in his Sunracer Scout for one of these in the Black variety and it certainly is a nifty little ship! Handles very well and looks superb. Ta very much!! The only thing I didn't take to was the HUD (which I've gotten rid of) which I just found too intrusive. It could have done...

I got rid of the Wasps oxp because while it was in my add-ons folder I couldn't find ant Feudal Hunting Lodges - the wasp nests seemed to be replacing them. Shame really, I liked those little guys - more like bees than wasps actually, no trouble unless you trouble them.

I've often seen non-thargoid ships emerge from Thargoid carriers with the label (alien). Ok I know it's probably unintentional but with a flourish of handwavium they are either ships that have been assimilated "borg"-fashion (or "Cybermen" if you're my generation) or alien duplicates created thing-l...

I'm afraid I'm hopelessy uncomputerate - I'd have no idea how to convert a dat file into a blank .png with just the guidelines on (what's that even called?

Yes Sunlover72 it does. Do it! Actually a penetrating Torpedo will take it out too, if you have that OXP. If I feel like being a real git I use a Quirium mine, but only if I get there well ahead of my allies!
