Another way to work owning a big ship and interfacing with a station is this: The ship comes in 2 parts, the main ship and a detatchable shuttle. When you arrive by the station you uncouple from the main ship and in the shuttle dock with the staion to do your business. When done, you launch, re-dock...

Freight Drones and Spacedocks

Freight drones would be robotic units that shift cargo about, and could come in several sizes. They would perhaps occupy cargo space like passenger berths do. They could transfer cargo pods ship to ship, or from ships (especially large ships which cannot dock or land) to stations or planets. Spaced...

Hoping for an Oolite-like multi-user thrill myself, I tried a few different online games. I didn't like Eve Online . I want to be IN my ship not watching over its shoulder! Evochron Legends wasn't too bad. You're back in the cockpit with a big universe to explore, but the graphics and gameplay aren'...

I used to try doing the pirate base/frigate thing using a cascade missile: Dive at the base traight off, fire the missile and scud straight past. Would usually take out base and pirates frigate alike BUT if unlucky, your idiot reservist chums would get vapourised too! Now I have the Nukes OXP I pack...

Screenshot B-Wing

Cmdr Jagger's B-Wing using the reskin seen above. If I can get some better "shots" during a game I'll post them later.

Ram raiders

Don't tell me you were flying a Cadeucus! I traded a perfectly good Rigel Tactical Bomber for a Cadeucus Alpha and regretted it because suddeny everyone wants to crash right into you, invariably fatally. Even pranging a buoy will destroy you, and don't even try to dock with a Feudal Hunting Lodge. G...

Here's an idea: Invading Oorg COobes! They would start out appearing, like the Thargons and attacking ships and stations looking for advanced technology. They would be armed with Override missiles and try to knock you out and scoop you up with their docking bays, like some kind of rogue station. Onc...

No Nukes is bad Nukes

I used to hare into the pirates or Thargons with a cascade missile and sometimes vape the lot (or most) of them cleanly - but other times the whole Navy fleet would dumbly fly into the expanding explosion leaving me all alone, and a fugitive! Now I have the Drones and Nukes OXPs I use Penetrating To...

And perhaps the first ship you encounter in the new Octaverse would be a huge cube which send you a message " We are the Oorg! Resistance is FOotile!!"

These look great! I have then alongside Neolites, Griff ships and Shady_Sungs, and some reskins of my own. It's a pretty Ooniverse!

Which Ship?

I've tried a few! Not too happy with either Cadeucus since anything and everything wants to crash into a Caddy inevitably blowing it up. The other features of the ship are great, though. One of my captains traded a perfectly wonderful Rigel Tactical bomber for one and rapidly regretted it. Of my cur...

The good ships!

My favourite ship so far has to be the Star Wars B-Wing (from the Star Wars ships OXP) It bears little resemblance to the fighter/bombers from the films - it's way too big, for a start. It has a decent little cargo hold, is very fast and manoeverable, but the clincher is a huge amount of missile pyl...
