Re: Progress

Since deep space is not a perfect vacuum, there is a finite possibility of the laser causing scintillation of the particles in its path, and this would be possible to detect, so a warning could be triggered by the nearby presence of laser scintillation?

Re: Griff No Shaders Shipset Preview

Gosh! I really started something with that throw away bit of British xenophobic humour!

Do you look at the refurbished pages on t...
