Re: Missile Beep

This OXP is now available in the manager. It's in the Ambience category.
Edited the first post to state this, and to add a link to the current version for manual installation.
I've also added it to the sortable list. Are there more steps I should take?
Thanks.

Re: Retro BBC micro Elite

Any bugs let me know It crashes when I go into 'Guide to Elite' (Ctrl-F6) and then to 'Bulletins' (Ctrl-F5). (I use BeebEm3 on OSX.) Edit to add: When using emulated Watford 1770 controller and ROM, it crashes less horribly: it goes back to the 'Load new Commander? (Y/N)' screen with the spinning c...

Re: Repopulation of the Ooniverse?

In my mind, this is the explanation for the distribution of different species across the Charts: Humans from Old Earth started colonising other planets. We brought along the other species. For food (lobsters, frogs?), as pets (felines), unintentionally (insects, rodents). Some (about half) of the pl...

Re: ComOonity Covers - Oolite Orchestrations

While compiling the big song list, I came cross a thread where someone (I think drew) came up with a bunch of alternative titles for songs. The one that stuck with me was this one.

The contrast of the lightheartedness of the song versus the harshness of the subject matter.
It's rule #1 of what makes things funny. (I have no source for this, just trust me..)

Re: Laser Jumble - Bob Maregeis and the Haulers

That would however require continuous updates, if I'm understanding correctly. Much like the List of Oolite Stories , yes it will. I just created this: List of Oolite Songs . It contains what I was able to find by trawling the fiction forum, including your latest 'trigger happy' song. I'm sure ther...

Re: Laser Jumble - Bob Maregeis and the Haulers

Perhaps this whole 'covers' thing needs a dedicated thread? I think a wiki page consisting of links to forum posts would be more appropriate. That way, there is no thread to get polluted, derailed, or buried, and the songs can be posted anywhere (in their own thread, as a reply to some other post, ...

Re: With apologies to Mac Davis...

I liked your use of "Xexidi" in the credits for nothing thread; that one made me chuckle :) Thanks. Personally, I thought the 'look at that Mamba'-verse was a real gem, but perhaps a bit obvious. same meaning, right? Yes. Hard to remain modest when you're as awesome as I am. If the original were mo...
