How long until one reaches Elite rank?

If this has been asked before, I'm sorry... the search didn't bring up anything useful, and I'm quite enthusiastic about this game. So again sorry if this has been asked before. I have found this wiki post , which outlines the ranking system and how it works. That's cool with me. The page mentions t...

Re: Introduce Yourself.

You can check planetinfo.plist wiki page for description of this file. The coordinates = "152 205"; determines the x y position of a system, both in 0-255 range. Just to touch base on that - I have been able to convert this data into a MySQL version, and have begun working on something. Will let yo...

Re: With which OXP's do you guys rumble the Ooniverse?

Now I'll wait for the next release in which, hopefully, the atmospheres have shader effects. Povray plus those shaders must be something to behold. You don't really have to wait for the next release. Just grab the latest Linux nightly (http://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite/status.html), and install...

Re: With which OXP's do you guys rumble the Ooniverse?

Whoa... thanks for the input guys :) I see some of you like it to be rather huge, complex and immersive - which is just right down my alley. I did install the Povray planets, although it was quite the lengthy process to get them and install them. However, the fruits of my lengthy road of downloading...

With which OXP's do you guys rumble the Ooniverse?

Now... I have tried some space-sims/games out there. Some are cool, some are dull. But none of them offered the option to expand, change, modify, or alter the game and its inner workings like Oolite - not that I know of anyways. For that alone, this has got to be the most awesome space sim I have co...

Re: Introduce Yourself.

The game is based on a mix of config files in various formats and Javascript. Most of it is in the Resources folder. But what do you mean by "database"? Something like SQlite or maybe an Excel spreadsheet? Well more in the likes of accessible raw data... which I found now. I can work my way through...

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Thank you all for your replies :)

I figured as much, the systems being static - which is really cool, I love that.

Can anyone point me in the direction of where the data for the maps is stored? I'd like to engage into an experiment.

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Well fellow pilots, what can I say? I guess the most important thing about me is that I am pretty much a space aficionado (as you may notice by my nickname). I never played the original Elite back in the day (which I do regret btw), but I had my go at this one and I found it to be the game I have be...
