note to self: bribe karajorma into giving soldier's bug report a not-so-high priority.

yeah, whatever. :doubtful: :p

i might be tempted to try using thrusters next time, though. :rolleyes: somehow i'm not satisfied with how i'm binding thruster controls. neither the keyboard nor the joystick hat seems right. or maybe they're both fine and i'm not quite right.

yeah. whatever. :blah:

I'm trying to bind them so most of it is easily accessible on my joystick alone. Especially glide. So far its worked alright.

maybe i should really invest the money in a decent hotas setup. not that i'd be flying better. but it would be way more convenient.

Nah, that's just user's style of flying. He kept ramming into Choob that day us three skirmished. He got a few kills from those rams too ;)

Ramming? :nervous:

That does not seem like the most economical way to get a kill. Granted, lately (read a week ago) I seem to be quite good at ramming Asteroids.

Die, asteroids, die!

Owie... -_-

ON WARD, RAMMING SPEED!!!!!

:lol:


sorry, couldn't resist

Anyhow, I only use ramming as a desperate measure suicide tactic, and even then, that few and far inbetween.

Don't like scratching the paint, as chief'll kill me :nervous:

i'm sorry. really. :( but when it comes to choosing between making time for gaming or taking the time to do get something done for the job, there's not much of a choice.

let's try to get together this week for some sort of compensation - and of course next sunday, which might become red squad's regular training day.

can't be flying tonight, folks. but it's not as if i was able to hit you when i am anyway, so... no big loss, i suppose. ;)

however, that shouldn't stop you guys from getting together tonight and fly a couple rounds.

Well sorry I wasn't able to play recently - 2 reasons
1) My processor's (or is it called CPU in English? :D) busted, i'm waiting for a new one
2) I got hooked up on Battlestar Galactica Orbiter add-on. It's cooool! It has BSG with retractable flightpods, jump drive, ability to launch from tubes with vipers, it has colonial one which can dock in the BSG's flightpod:eek2: Simply put, it's amazing.

BTW i think i'll be able to play on next weekend.

Ok here are some screenshots and instructions:

(http://yankeeclippersmobile.com/Orbiter/BSG_5.gif)
(http://yankeeclippersmobile.com/Orbiter/BSG_7.gif)
(http://yankeeclippersmobile.com/Orbiter/BSG_8.gif)

1) Download the Orbiter simulator here (http://orbit.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/orbit.html). You can download additional (better) textures for Earth and other planets if you want.
2) Download the Galactica add-on here (http://yankeeclippersmobile.com/Orbiter/index.html) (just click on continue few times - read the information there, it's useful, you also have separate download for viper mk7)
3) Unzip the Orbiter
4) Unzip the add-on, so the appropriate folders go to appropriate places.
5) Start orbiter.exe
6) Choose the scenario you want (they start with BETA and should be on the top), you can also change setting in the appropriate tabs.
7) Enjoy. (I did, especially when I docked the BSG with the ISS - a thing I always wanted to see. The ISS is just dwarfed by Galactica)


Just a note, flying in Orbiter is HARD. This is the simulator, not an arcade game. I REALLY recommend you read the manual.

Btw i lol'd when i looked for the links, if you write "galactica orbiter" in google, this forum page is the first one.

Try burning in the atmosphere, land using hover and retro thrusters, and take-off into orbit :D

How to maximize your jump distance:
1) Ful thrust on your engines
2) Use the number keys (not the numpad ones) to change JF and JC numbers to 100. Then you shuld make an 1AU jump.

Title: Come fly with me. Let's fly let's fly away.....
Post by: karajorma on November 10, 2007, 04:11:37 PM
It's one AU.

The Earth-Sun distance is the rough definition of what an AU is.
