bitte bitte gerngeschehn
picload isn’t bad, no?
no ads compared to massive ads in photobucket.
you can copy the link right after uploading and you don’t have to enlarge or copy the images link with rightclick or any other.
ony you have to get used to that picload won’t immediatly return to your content if you uploaded a picture
resp. that you have to leave your account to upload, it’s a bit uncommon.
costs nothing, surprisingly, “no ads” and it costs nothing, that’s fine.
what exactly the problem is with dropbox i don’t know
strangewisely my uploaded pictures from dropbox worked, right?
i took a link of a picture from your dropbox and in the beginning it appeared properly, but when i returned after a couple of hours it was gone.
however, dropbox and onedrive aren’t ment to publish pictures else they would have made it easier, it’s almost a violation, something that’s not ment to do.
i tried that once long ago with OneDrive but i failed thus i know they might not like that, it’s ment as a safe place to store your projects or whatever files.
it should be safe and you have enable sharing to share a file.
i guess already from this pov it’s not good if you can post a link someone could follow back to it’s origin.
with the shortened links you can’t do that.
you can only download a specific file or visit a specific directory, all in the limits of the userlevel you set.
the “long” link you get with the alternative menu when you click at the enlargened picture could probably be used in a FTP browser,
which would under circumstances allow to manipulate the files in your account.
many years ago i used quite regulary a FTP browser, just to snoop for hidden files if i suspected there are some.
“Grateful Music” was such a site where you could download some free music mostly mp3
but there was a larger repo hidden with lossless compressed music which you could only access with a FTP browser.
either you could enter as “anonymus” (ppl sometimes don’t care about this i guess),
or if a site is protected you will have to enter a password, but there is no limit in tries,
thus one could if he really likes to enter the site use a algorythm to get the password.
i think this is finally the reason why it’s not good (not wanted) to publish pictures from a filesharer.
but that’s just guesswork.
while to a image hoster you can only upload images and clips, that’s no big loss if someone could manipulate them at all, usually it’s no “secret” stuff.
i like, not so far from me, erm grey hair this i will have to get me first, but they grow one after the other.June 25, 2017 at 7:35 pm #110486
It was a quite tight run, I had to manually fly the whole thing, after the autopilot botched the transfer. With lots of orbit adjustments and even an aerobrake maneuver at about 200 km/s (and quite a few reloads…). I’ve got back to civilization with like 1% propellant. After a three month in-sys flight. My Sinonatrix must have been stinking after that.(This image was taken before the deceleration burn.)
Moral: don’t trust the autopilot if you want to go to things that are in a tight and fast orbit.June 26, 2017 at 4:23 am #110487June 26, 2017 at 8:22 am #110488
Oh wow. You can even lad on them!
I could imagine them being some unique to that world features, but I doubt with that height they would stand for any length of time in that about 1G gravity.
And their jaggedness flickers as you rotate around the external camera.June 26, 2017 at 11:33 am #110489
Another S&R run, now at a Small Gas Giant (Gas not-so-giant?) lit by two suns.
Also: fuel scooping is hard, now that too big pressure will crush your ship. But at least this run didn’t took quarter a year.July 11, 2017 at 9:06 pm #110503
Yet another SAR run. Venturestar at a pretty gas giant this time. I’m slowly gathering the money to buy a Mola Mola.

WOW! That Gas Giant looks great! B)August 9, 2017 at 6:05 am #110535
Here’s a new one for me: lava!
First time seeing anything like this. Mostly I’m doing taxi jobs, getting further out from Sol, so far haven’t been visiting many “massive highly volcanic” planets, mostly rocky lifeless ones. This one happens to have a single settlement with military class certificate. I went back to Sol to see if Io looks anything like this, but it’s just a standard “cratered” planetoid.
Some huge volcanos

Thanks for the screen shots Nozmajner & Shodan. I’ve uploaded some to go alongside the new Windows Pioneer build on [Mod DB](http://www.moddb.com/games/pioneer “Mod DB”). 🙂August 14, 2017 at 6:57 am #110543
Thanks, Geraldine! 🙂 There will be another build soon-ish that will iron out some kinks that might be left in this one though.August 14, 2017 at 11:22 am #110544
No worries Nozmajner. I am still getting comfortable with the new HUD and…..have you guys did something to the planets? I can’t put my finger on it but they look better, somehow. :smiley:August 14, 2017 at 11:41 am #110545
I can’t recall any changes to planet rendering since last release. Or to rendering in general.August 14, 2017 at 1:28 pm #110546
Must be my graphics card then as I changed it. Still, they look lovely all the same. Nice work! 🙂August 15, 2017 at 5:18 pm #110547
Is there a way to turn off the new reticule, at least when in external/sidereal view? It kind of covers up the view of the ship. Also the font is very tiny and there’s a lot more information, will take some getting used to.August 15, 2017 at 6:51 pm #110548
You can only turn it off along with the other parts oh the HUD with Tab.
Yeah, some fonts and parts need bit of tweaking, but we want as many eyes and feedback on it as possible, so feedback is welcome. 🙂 Could you post screenshots? Testing was done by only a few people yet (I played a lot with it tho). The UI will be in flux for a while most likely.
[You can find the docs of the HUD on the wiki. ](https://pioneerwiki.com/wiki/Flight_UI “You can find the docs of the HUD on the wiki. “) But I think you will like it after getting used to it, it enables some nice possibilities, like actually flying fully manual for a change.
