Re: A New Commander's Hurdles

This is bound to be a tricky issue. Games have changed so much in the last 30 years, and I doubt that many would want to go back to the sorts of games that were available then, that it is difficult for those of us who have witnessed the changes along the way to fully appreciate the expectations of m...

Re: Girls play oolite?

Well, even in shooter games there are some female players. Some of them can be astoundingly lethal, and certainly not people to underestimate. LOL Yep, you've got that right! I was into jujitsu in my youth, and the girls we trained with were dangerous! Never underestimate the female of the species ...

Re: A change of plans

Despite the outstanding contributions of Ahruman to the continued development and refinement of Oolite, I am firmly convinced that, just as when Giles informed us that he could no longer whole-heartedly devote every waking moment to Oolite, we will continue to grow and develop. I actually think we a...

Well, maybe the death announcement should be changed to, "Suck space, Commander" ...?

Re: Screenshots

That looks like the result of what might happen if the Cylons take up the Cobra franchise! Oh, and @ Frame - that beast reminds me of the Federation ships in EV Nova! Often wondered if they were doable - nice work! I did start on a version of the Miner with the four arms, but at the time the poly co...

Re: Looking ahead

I'm confused. Why are we not allowed to experience total failure? Isn't it part of real life? There we are doing really well, life is blossoming, and... ...Stuff happens, and we're screwed. Nobody to come and rescue us, no way out, no fault of our doing, nobody to stamp our feet and say it was their...

Re: General problems I have with Oolite

No, no, no, no no... ...please don't! :shock: ...I had almost forgotten that nasty little trick on the Speccy with the random pirates boarding. And yes, it would seem to always happen after many hours of play with a save. On one occasion I freaked my upstairs neighbours by screaming in rage in the m...

Re: Looking ahead

Wouldn't be better to set some specific scales based on that last comment? So that all astronomical sizes and distances were 1:10 typical real values, but all being-made objects were done to actual scale? That sort of scale would make planets and solar objects seriously impressive, as they should be...

Re: Show and Tell (new ships/ ships in progress)

I think that should have been called the 'Medusa' for the effect it will have on pilots seeing it in their scanner! :twisted:
