Your initial imperious reaction got the ball rolling, sir.another_commander wrote:You might want to rein that snooty attitude in yourself a little bit. Trust me - Oolite has had these kind of debates before - and guess what it's still here.
I'm not whining - I merely made a suggestion, was slapped down and reacted accordingly to be rebuffed like some peasant.another_commander wrote:Don't whinge at developers who are trying to stay faithful to the feel of the original Elite and are working on this code for free in their own time because they won't implement a code change for you. If you want it that bad, download the source code, make the hack and release your own version of Oolite.
Looks like the feature might get added to the next version anyway - At least this pointless argument led to something.
There is no need to get all gurning and upset at my lack bowing and scraping. Of course I appreciate you (and the other developer's) hard work.another_commander wrote:Feel free to make suggestions - but don't get all uppity if the developers (and a lot of the rest of the community) don't agree with you and immediately introduce your brilliant new idea.
I enjoy the game and would only offer ideas I think are pretty much essential. And to be honest, Oolite is now very different from Braben's Elite.
I had no intentions of being unfriendly when I made my first post - But your attitude ended with us both arguing.
So, I apologise for shooting back. We both should have shown better qaulity.
