Something we've just started is an Oolite Image Repository - well worth a look, and it will grow fast!

Goodness, some amazing images there in the Gallery.

Please excuse this "fanboy" moment but Oolite is just the best thing next to Elite Original. I've been playing it for years and I just adore it. I love the expandability, the add ones and the AMAZING work of the development team and OXP contributors. Just totally friggen AMAZING. Much like Geraldine on here I am afraid I also suffer from Eliteitus, that is I have to play some version of Elite at least once a week. 😉

Damn good show chaps ! 😀

The main Elite Wiki (of which the Oolite Wiki is part) occasionally has problems, and goes down completely. So Maik has made a backup which gets copied from the main wiki regularly, and is available here: http://wiki.maikschulz.de/index.php/Main_Page

Not really a resource - just an Oolite browser skin for those smart people who use Firefox.

Heh... that may confuse Griff, as he didn't create the skin.

So who created it? I just thought because of the models in it, it was Griff,............oh wait it minute (checks download link again <img src="' http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//read.gi f"' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' /> ).

See you and these different names! It was you CODY! <img src="' http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//girl_haha.gi f"' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' />

Anyways, well done! <img src="' http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//good.gi f"' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' />

If you use Firefox, it's very easy to create your own skin (persona) - just click the Create Your Own button at the top of that page, find your own image slices, follow the instructions re size, colour scheme etc, then upload it.

Does anyone know how to pin this thread? Can I do it myself or ask the administrators?

It's still being developed, so new features will be added.

<nods> Good! I look forward to the day when PG adds the back-door routes to his chart tool!

I reckon that will be a bit more difficult? (advanced?)

I think PG has a way to auto-calculate them - he has certainly calculated several back-door routes for me in the past, and they entailed multiple sideways mis-jumps. The basic single mis-jump routes shouldn't be too hard for him... heh!

So would this be why my only 'perfect victim' attempt failed?  There are only certain systems/destinations it works for?

How do you mean failed... you can mis-jump any NPC to any midway point - in many cases, that will leave you within jump distance of a third system (or more) that wasn't previously reachable. The specific back-door routes apply to isolated sectors (ie the Riftworlds) - and the exit route differs from the way in. As for multiple sideways mis-jumps - that gets very complicated.

Ok.  I think I know now what I did wrong.. the mid-point was not in range of my intended destination.  We also got hit by a rather large group of Thargs.. I was too busy trying to stay alive to look out for my 'victim'.. by the time the dust settled, he was nowhere to be found, which left me feeling pretty bad about what I'd done to him.. 🙁

 

So.. double-fail..

Yep... it can do that! I tried for ages to get a pirate in the role of the ideal victim, but it ain't happening.

I admit it's not the kind of thing I'm usually watching for, but I don't think I've ever really seen pirates jumping out of a system.. other than a RH mark, at any rate..
