Well fellow pilots,
what can I say? I guess the most important thing about me is that I am pretty much a space aficionado (as you may notice by my nickname). I never played the original Elite back in the day (which I do regret btw), but I had my go at this one and I found it to be the game I have been looking for. It's got enough systems to play in, a well enough thought-through universe, ships, technology. Plus, the OXP thing is amazingly awesome, makes the game infinitely scalable - which is unique to Oolite - or let's say there's no other game I know of utilizing this kind of mechanism.
I have a few simple questions, though (one of which I believe to know the answer to):
- Do we have a static universe in Oolite? I mean if the systems in the eight galaxies are always regenerated when you start a new commander. From what I have seen, it's static (which would make it easier and much more playable for me).
- Where can I find the OXP that makes atmospheric effects as seen on this post for example
? Any pointers or download links are appreciated
- Is there some kind of API or database set or something for items and ships in-game? If so I'd have fun in building an item database or some sorts
Ya so that's basically it... I'm looking forward to building up my flying skills, getting to know the Ooniverse, the ships, enemies, stations. I got a lot to read up to and learn. Obviously a joystick might be in order so well. I'm on Ubuntu - any compatible models?
Glad to be here, fly safe.
