Marvellous. I imagine we could make a Monty Python joke out of that if we tried hard enough.

Are you new to the forums? As I say, I've been away for a bit (and indeed I may not be a frequent visitor in the future). Perhaps you are not, though; there were many people I didn't get to know or even did not come across much at all. (I know I could find out such things, probably, by searching the forums; I am being lazy.) Or perhaps I am just being forgetful.

Anyway: I never mastered graphics maps. I've made some OXPS, but graphics are either not involved, or more or less nicked (er, I mean borrowed . .) from other people. Or - as in my Fer-de-Lance 3G OXP - the normal map is a result largely of luck (and settings in the program called 'GIMP').

although relative new to the art of posting on this forum ( this summer), i myself am many summers old and followed oolite on and off for several years.

It is as they said a friendly forum with a huge amount of lovely hidden information on oolite :wink:

Great.

As to hidden stuff, you might want (well, it's a shameless plug really) to check out my Interstellar Tweaks expansion pack (also available via the in-game expansion pack manager). Just a suggestion! Anyway: welcome!

The Spam is a living animal, cloned from hot-dog tissue, and is the only mammal with no hair, teeth or bones, which is why people so seldom choose to photograph it. Its only relative is a synthetic jellyfish, the Velveeta. --Ask Dr. Science!

So much for spiced ham, hopefully from the pig family.

I've actually had spam for lunch all week and I'm here to recant my testimony. Unless they're spicing it with bland or extra-mild, it ain't spiced ham. Add it to the ever-growing list of things that ain't what they used to be.
