Even rarer is that you actually managed to get a reasonably well-lit shot of them.. 8) :D
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

Okay, I did get reduced to a fiery pile of wreckage shortly after this shot was taken... but I LOVE the immersion factor of my ship being hailed by name in 1.80...

Indeed. :-) That said, I totally get being addressed by the name of my ship, but some of them seem to address me personally, and I have to wonder how they know *my* name. As far as I know the only way I can currently learn the name of the pilot of any given ship (without cheating) is to destroy it and scoop the pod. ;-)

Flying to Ceexee or however the G1 tech 15 world is spelled. I'm always flying to the sun. Easy enough to get the planet in the way, then get closer till it almost blocks it out. It's slightly off center though... I should try again sometime ;)

Alright, time to collect my reward. And, did you notice the prices they're paying for metals and gems here? Time to party down, crash for 24 hours, and start all over again.

Just wanted to check the board's perception of the little tweak I've come up with, in order to give a "rounder" look to the planets:

Lave as rendered by default

Lave, new

For comparison, below I have Amaza (G3), with Povray Planets & System Features Rings oxps:

.. and new.

This was the most unexpected (but, otherwise, quite pleasant) perception I hoped for :oops:
