Re: BPlanets

Aside from some oddness around the dark side atmosphere edge in the darkened third image, I agree it looks best so far. But I think the more central storm there looks excellent, while the storm up and to the left of it looks fake because the upper edge of the spiral is light coloured. It's like some...

Re: BPlanets

In your latest post, I think the second/third image and the first of the "reproducing other people's ways" images are the most convincing. The first image in your latest post has too many storms and the spirals are too "loose." With the lowered brightness in the subsequent images, the dark storms ar...

Re: I'm new to Oolite

Huh. So a Cobra Mk III in Elite was 39.624 meters only?

Elite Dangerous seems to think so, since according to its measurements the Cobra III fits in a landing pad with a maximum dimension of 44 m.

Re: Player credit balance changes when screen changes in Ship Outfitting

IronHide military grade armour still is listed as just IronHide Armour on the F5-F5 screen (ship’s manifest). In the newer versions (now available through the in-game manager), the F5 screen (commander profile, missions list etc.) includes a line detailing the remaining IronHide armour percentage an...

My dear Cholmondeley, surely you cannot seriously mean that the cultured English colonials of Digebiti have adopted so gauche and plebian a manner of cotillion as the gavotte?

Re: The First Amphiboly of the Architectonic of Oolite

Good point, unfortunately RL proofs otherwise. RL has multiple currencies and the costs of driving or walking goods around on foot and paying bribes in RL must be far less than the costs of equipping a space ship in Oolite. No one would trade with anarchies if they couldn't have a reasonable expect...

Re: The First Amphiboly of the Architectonic of Oolite

I like the idea of pirate escorts waiting at the Anarchy witchpoint to join up with non-fugitive incoming traders, that would be great to see. My point is that there has to be a way for non-fugitive traders to successfully and consistently trade between anarchies and non-anarchies, or else the anarc...

Re: The First Amphiboly of the Architectonic of Oolite

It occurs to me also that anarchy systems should be some of the safest systems for well-escorted traders, out of sheer economic necessity. If pirates shoot down the very ships trading with their anarchy homes, then their anarchy homes won't have any credits to pay for their ill-gotten goods. On the ...

Re: The First Amphiboly of the Architectonic of Oolite

I recall complaining about the difficulty of combat when I first joined this community, as well. Even as a beginner, I did not find pirates difficult to avoid , once the almost-essential injectors were acquired, or with the torus drive "avoid the lane" option. With the Telescope OXP, it is even easi...
