Dosen't this just effect how long you can survive once the FWD / AFT shield has failed (ie how long your energy banks hold out), rather than the strength of the FWD / AFT shield itself? As once shields are out, your energy banks quickly get cut to ribbons, this dosen't increase the ship's defences t...

Question on Ships Shield Strength

Am I right in thinking that in Oolite, all ships have the same basic shield strength (although different numbers of energy banks)? What I mean is does say a Cobra III with Shield Boosters and Military Shields take the same punishment to get it's shield to zero as say a much larger ship like a PCC wi...

On the topic of the Mussurana, I've been playing with this OXP installed for a couple of months. I often see them as NCPs, but I've never seen one for sale in the shipyard, although the Wikii says that the ship is available to the player.

Has anyone managed to buy one?

Love it!! :D As a wish-list, would it be possible to have the messages from other ships read out? Also sound events for systems being destroyed? What about some warning noises as the sheilds fall such as "Warning Shield critical" when low, "Warning Shields have Failed", when they...

Thabks for that. I now seem to be able to survive one missile strike from full shields, but am still destroyed if at anything less than full shields. I still think they are too powerful though, after all if a basic Cobra MK III could survive a single strike, then an Imperial Courier with Miltary Shi...

Do you know which OXP and what I should look for in the files?

I have all the OXPs installed so going through them all would take a while!

How do you get it?

Is it just a random event when scooping?

Does this only happen in Galaxy 5 as the Wiki says?

Just finished Deposed and was thinking of heading back to Galaxy 1 to do Black Baron.

Sorry to double-post, but I discovered that if you save the Commander under a different name each time, the bug does not occour.

Odd!

Bug in PC r439 (Thargoid Plans Mission)

I have finished the Iconics mission and jumped to galaxy 3. As I had more than 1,281 kills the Thargoid Plans mission trigged when I docked. I sun-skimmed to Birera and got the Navel Engergy Unit. The mission disappeared from my mission list. However, the game now will not save. Any attempt to save ...

I installed the same version and it is fine on my machine.

However, my brother used the older version which was causing me problems, but he didn't encounter the same bug.

Don't know if it just somthing to do with the Graphics Card in each machine?
