Hi Everyone

I think most of the major changes are done, I think. Now I will be just doing small stuff to improve security and hopefully make everything look better. :)

    Into the wormhole, bound for... out there, somewhere!

    That's a nice one. I like the new wormhole effect by Svengali. ;)

    OooooOOOooh is that a new OXP? Yes I like that! 8-)

    Yes, that is a new addition to the BGS oxp by Svengali... beautiful!

    It does require a shader-capable machine for the wormhole effects though.

    Just a simple pic... the planet Ladigeso in crescent phase:

    Dogfighting with another Cobra III... those four missiles are real and were headed my way shortly after I took this pic!

    The lighting on some of the underside of the Corba III is nice. But the important thing to ask was that the last thing you saw before you embraced your endless sleep :)

    Nope... I splashed the bandit, zapped two of the missiles, and survived the other hits... just!

    Awesome picture. I will always enjoy Griff's shipset, and his constrictor is pretty epic.



    Here's another one of my favorite ship set's, Smiv's!

    Here we have the Corsair's Conscience taking her maiden voyage.

    Nice onces. I too like the Smivs chipset along with other chipsets. I go for max variety in my Ooniverse.

    Today I did an Escort Contract and had a good picture moment to catch the Griff Anaconda in all it's glory! :)

    And by the way. The Escort Contract.oxp http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=9713by Capt Murphy is an excellent addition to Oolite. In the screenshot you can see my client safely arriving in the station aegis. The Hud you see here is the new CRR Hud http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=11502by Capt. Beatnik.

    Great shots guys! And pagroove? I like the way you provide links to the OXPs shown in your picture. :)

    Thanks, Yes otherwise one may ask which oxp is it and then I have to look it up. Thats quite difficult nowadays with Oolite with hundreds of oxp's.

    But I can really recommend that new escort oxp. Another new way to bring variation to an already excellent game.
  • GeraldineGeraldine SSC Supporter
    edited September 2012
    Variation is certainly not lacking with regards to Oolite. Great work by a great community for a great game! ;)

    Oh man, I cannot tell you how many times i have raged after doing an Escort Contract. I keep foolishly activating my torus drive BEHIND the darned ship, so that when it stops to get in the main station, I crash into my escort!



    So irritating.

    Prompted by a pic recently posted by Pinback, this is from an experimental wip OXP:

    That central section revolves nicely, just as in B5! If I attack it, it kills me in two seconds flat!

    Magic especially getting the central section to rotate. 8-) 8-) :D

    Will we be seeing a new oxp. :?:

    Has there ever been any total conversion for Oolite. :?:

    Ain't it just! That ship is part of a grand mission OXP that hopefully will get finished and be released... one fine day! Not my work, I hasten to add. I’m just a test pilot (the Chuck Yaeger of the Ooniverse... heh!), and I get to play with some very tasty stuff, some of which never makes general release. Taking part in fleet actions in interstellar space with a ship like that on your side is rather good fun (the player gets a very tasty ship to fly as a reward), and if the OXP is ever completed, it will be a cracker!



    I don’t think there has ever been a total conversion of Oolite, although there are several shipset OXPs from other universes. Not really my thing though, as I prefer a consistent Elite-style universe for gameplay.

    Another classic sci-fi ship has joined the game... the Firefly from Serenity.
  • edited 4:36PM
    Love that show. I won't be using it in my game. ( I prefer my Ooliverse to reflect the Elite setting only.) Still, its absolutely brilliant that Staer9 made it for Oolite. :D

    Crikey! It's been ages since I posted a pic!



    This fugitive was having a right old tussle with a couple of GalCop Vipers when I came along, and doing quite well:



    Asp1-1.png



    Then a bounty-hunter in a Fer-de-Lance started on him as well, and the poor sod got confused and froze for a second:



    Asp2.png



    I might've intervened - either put him out of his misery, or splashed the Vipers and Ferdie for him!

    Here is my latest hud creation, NumericHUDv3.oxp

    NumericHUDv3 #3 by CommonSenseOTB, on Flickr



    The real improvement in NumericHUDv3 comes from keeping the normal readouts just barely visible and not distracting while making them glow/pulse a bright color to draw your attention to the gauges that need to be monitored closely. This concept works quite nicely, particularily during combat when your attention is focused on killing or being killed rather than the gauges and NumericHUDv3 is now quite close to what I had originally envisioned for a numeric hud display when I first set out to make version 1 over 10 months ago. In the near future there will be improvements due to new oxp capabilities.
