I actually downloaded the latest version a few weeks ago, and again got lost in Asciisector. I was reminded of what a great game it is. Also, in my old save I had a maxed out Pegasus, 2 million in the bank, and max skill and max reputation on everything (well, not for Pirates, Retros or Kilrathi). So now I'm back on a new game.
A thing I noticed is that even though I "only" have 20% rifle skill, there's almost no jitter when aiming at real persons. I thought it was a bug first, but maybe it's because it was the more expensive rifle and short range?
Also, slightly strange to have on rifle in each hand. makes me think of Arnold in Commando.
