A fresh start

Post by Smivs »

Around a year ago I more or less stopped playing Oolite :!:
My 'main' Commander had got a bit lost and was effectively on holiday in the Rift Worlds of Galaxy Seven. As many of you know he was flying a fully loaded Iron-ass Boa Clipper. Even with Tough Guys Armageddon as a 'daily' OXP things were getting a bit too easy and a bit too boring.
Also I had several OXP projects on the go or in mind, and these were taking up more and more of my time.
So for around a year I didn't really play Oolite at all.
Now that my OXP projects are more or less complete (I still have the Liners to get together sometime) I thought it was time for a new challenge - a fresh start.
So I headed off to Lave, somewhat anonymously, and adopted a new persona.
Commander Jack Sterling hails from Zaeredre, a pleasant planet populated by the British people during the diaspora of mankind. Jack is a traditionalist and is very patriotic about his heritage. He is a fair and tolerant man, and is prepared to 'do the right thing' where necessary.
He is currently at Lave having just obtained his Pilots Licence, and has taken delivery of a brand new Cobra Mk III, which he has named 'Bulldog One'. This is a base customer model, which jack has personalised with a custom paint job.
He will be launching soon, with his first task to be slowly improving the ship's specifications and I will share his exploits and adventures with you as he explores Galaxy One and beyond. He will inhabit a very 'pure' Ooniverse, with only eye-candy OXPs which re-texture the original 'core' objects, My Smivs'Shipset and Accessories, and System Redux, although I may add-in a bit of flavour (eg Tionisla Orbital Graveyard) from time to time to enhance his travels.

Smivs, do you think Jack will offer his custom paint job for Bulldog One to the general populous, thus allowing others to see this remarkable display colours in all their glory. :D

He's a decent sort of chap, so he might do that, yes.

whilst i'm on the subject of beating up the Oolite demi gods, is it actually possible to kill Ahruman? a bit of cheating on the shields/energy recharge rate is suspected!

How very 007'ish of you. :P
Take an idea from one person and twist or modify it in a different way as a return suggestion so another person can see a part of it that can apply to the oxp they are working on.
