Right on, Commander...

Post by ffutures »

...Was "heard" in my messages

And there was much rejoicing...

Now I can start looking at some of the add-ons without feeling I've cheated.

Actually a bit anticlimactic - three reasonably straightforward flights took me from 6391 to 6400 - when I thought I was coming up to it at 6000 I got jumped by Thargoids twice, and in the final flight ran into 14 pirates.

Yeah... my 6400th confirmed kill was a Python with a measly single-digit bounty. I should've let him go, I suppose.

Congratulations, Commander!

And kudos for doing it all with a core-game-only installation! 8)

(Umm.. you do know that you can take in-game screenshots at any time with the * [shift-8] key, yes? :wink: )
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

Actually I must have missed or forgotten that - I haven't looked at the instructions in months.

I managed Elite with the PC version of the original game a couple of times - once when it first came out, and once four or five years ago before I'd heard of Oolite. But that was really a bit easier than Oolite.

Congratulations! If you haven't got a name for your Boa already, I've always like "HMS Selene" ... :wink:

Now there's a blast from the past - but that was a ground base, in a manner of speaking, not an active ship.

Very true, but it was a good name nonetheless ... And it was a blast indeed, for which many thanks!

Congratulations, commander!
I got my elite at a similar time and it's a great feeling after a couple of years of play.
My final adversary was called "Eagle of Grief III" and the bugger broke my beer holder :D

Did you contemplate a Superman I moment (turn back time with a reload of your last save :wink: )
But by crikey you made him pay for it! :P

Congrats to you and ffutures (...the way I've written that it reads like you're getting married to each other :shock: Sorry! :lol: )
