I don't know which 8-bit version you remember but the Speccy was just a unfilled circle IIRC. :) That's not to say it wasn't rotating, it was just kinda hard to tell. ;)

I've used Stellarium on Windows and OS X, great program. Along with Celestia. Both excellent for Space enthusiasts.

It certainly gives you something to aim for...

I think you're thinking of monkeys or chickens... and there's no spanking or choking going on here. :P *shows hands*

Thanks for calling attention to my unfortunate mistyping. :arrow:

Did they give you a viking probe?

I get nervous whenever I see the word "probe" in a subject, but this sounds like a great idea. I think adding random, potentially unusual encounters like this helps to add to the depth of the game. The Wiki would probably be the best place to search for existing OXPs like this. I don't think there a...

I hope I get to see a view like that one day. Definitely a bucket-list item methinks, along with swim with (thx Kaks :P) the dolphins (don't judge me!).

It kind of is for your sim city/oolite dream game, unless you manage to find a few developers (4 or 5, at a guess) who share your vision! :D Yeah well, you win some, you lose some. ;) I'm a realist, I appreciate that this would be no mean feat. I take heart when I see games like Planeshift which is...

Let's not turn this into an Oolite wish-list thread people, that wasn't my original intention. :P Nor is it an Oolite 2 thread either. Ships named after snakes are out. Forget canon, think outside the Coriolis. :roll: To stick with Oolite for just a brief moment and to add further to the whole "ther...

I meant more kinda Activity Monitor but fair enough. I was mostly curious to see what your RAM/Swap file usage was but you're probably right and it's more of an Oolite issue per se, rather than an operating system issue.
