That's just for those of us who can't decide which set of controls to use... :eeeee:

Haven't you ever walked on board and stood there for a bit wondering which side to sit on?

Hm, sounds like a lot more features than I was expecting are coming to v0.7! Looking forward to it...

Bounty Hunters? Bring 'em on! :eeeee:

Ok, seriously, I like the idea of a record of past offences. But for organisational purposes, I think a separate tab for them would be slick.

Yeah, that would be a lot nicer for the new players... although it does seem a bit... odd... if nothing else from the standpoint of realism.

Gee, whiz! They sound awfully rough to me too.

I think GLI is really on to something with his colored bars idea.

I've always wistfully thought of the benefits of being able to transfer a prisoner on or off of a ship. Maybe to keep it from being a get-rich-quick-smuggling-slaves situation, an NPC could only be transferred on or off of the player's ship if that NPC was captured in space.

Good point. But the wanted dead missions on the other hand...

Those would be fun ships to fight against....

Er, about the bows... they'd be a lot of fun. Maybe crossbows should fit under the rifle skill since they are similar in aiming/firing, whereas a compound/whatever bows would kinda need a skill their own.

I think Pellaeon's idea of balance is just about perfect.

Everything Else / Re: Java 4-ever

But the newest JRE is always readily available for everyone. And besides, it's only the Java language version that counts, not the JRE release. For instance, if you install the Java 1.6 JDK (Java Development Kit) then any software you make will be compatible with any Java 1.6 JRE.

Java is extremely widespread now, and even if somebody has to upgrade their JRE from v1.5, etc. to use a piece of software, it's no great loss and shouldn't be enough of an issue to deter very many users at all.

@VincentFirePony: If you're interested in 3D Java game development, check the Java Monkey Engine (JME for short). Yeah, I know, the name sounds wacky, but it's a GREAT tool. I haven't actually used it myself since I never can find time to write games (or much else code for that matter :() but it looks very slick.

Eh, nope. Nice lookin' piece of software, except for the fact that its windows only.

I dunno... why would they use a docking tube that was any larger than necessary? Especially since fighters are so small.

Yeah, it just lets drive at anyone who's mad at you for whatever reason, be it because of faction, accidental (or intentional) shooting, etc.

P.S. - Welcome to the forum!

Quote from: "sudo"

Speaking of cap ships... Those ships that look like mini death stars that hang out around Loye naval base, can you ever find them anywhere else? I am always careful to slow down around the naval base because I wouldn't want to run into any of them :eeeee: !

Yup. Besides what Pelaeon just mentioned, there's one that hangs around the new naval base. I forget the name of the system though.... it's one of the new ones added in v0.6.6.
