Re: New assassins Problems

I left the plot open ended (perhaps YOU were Agent Wombat with your memories edited by Special Branch and so no longer remember accepting the infiltartion mission - Total Recall style) in case I or anyone else wanted to do a follow on. I had vaugue ideas of you recieving a series of messages apparen...

Re: Random Kudos

Glad your liking it! I think what happened was you shot down a ship which had earlier stolen some Mining Pods from the mining machines near the Bar. If you watch them, you'll see that from time to time they spit out a powered pod full of ore which the hopper (if unmolested) will scoop up. They can b...

If you google 7Zip, you can get a free extractor that can unzip tars as well as zips.

Re: Deep, deep, deeeeeeeep space travel.

I just hit J and left the computer alone for a while and then came back after dinner and noted the co-ordinates! :wink: But the idea was to have em a realistic distance out and really big. I think its about 40 mins at J jump speed to get to them. As the Cobra Mk III is meant to do about 1/3rd lights...

Re: How to 'tow' or salvage abandoned ships, Noob question..

It calcualtes the value by reference to the ship's mass which (I think) in turn relates to the volume of the ships model. A random tweak is added to + or - from this base figure to reflect how beat up the ship is and whether any cargo survived. There is therefore logic to the amount awarded, but it ...

Where's my Light Hugger? And my genetically modified hyper-pig sidekick? This is the trouble with Life as We Know It. Everything Alistiar predicts (as a proper scientist) should actually be possible round about now . But it’s more sort of not as we, the human race, keep spending our money on stupid ...

Try AgPad (free download - a google should find it). I don't know if it can fix it as such, but if you set the display to XML anything that is not a valid character for XML gets highlighted in red so should at least help a manual removal.

Anybody got a bit storage space for a download link?

Asked my Firm to set up a page with download links to 3 word documents. So they did: http://www.dpp-law.com/recruitment/ But as they don't know how to do download links to the 3 word documents they just copied the documents into the web page and expect applicants to C & P them into a word document a...

Had a similar problem with making the bounty hunters in Random Hits ( not added by the role police or hunter), none the less perform law enforcement. Scaning nearby ship's bounty is one way to do it as 99 times out of 100 a bad guy attacking another trader will have a bounty. You can also scan for T...

I'm Spartacus for 25th Nov as I live in London!

But where is the Coach & Horses?

And how will we know each other? Red Rose bent into the shape of a Cobra Mk III?

But I'd be there if peeps are up for it.

Your mission was to defend the mafia's narcotics operation and take out the Triad Boss. Darn turncoat! :wink:
