I have a suggestion: make felysian planets much more rare, but add a chance that a non-fely. planet will have life. (who says life has to be carbon based? )
1. Messing around with the code that generates the star systems might cause the disappearance of the planets with ruins on them (or are those systems planet types/positions hardwired? Could they be hardwired before this change? Or would that push over the 640 kb limit?)

2. Having life on non-felisian planets would be interesting, but it should be rare (maybe 1 out of 300 non-felisian planets would have some sort of life).

Can't be arsed to read all of this...

You fixed an 'endless lightning' bug, but I'd love to see a furiously stormy planet

How about this. When typying in the GOES menu, if you move back and accidentally stop typing in the GOES screen but are hitting commands on your ship, you can set the target to some other star in such a way that you can no longer select local targets and the option says "need recal" when you select it. You have to jump to another system then jump back in order to select a local target.

That's why you should be hands-off with the mouse while you're typing, and also selecting the star you're already at is another option.

Sorry for double post, but this calls for a bump.

A suggestion: unbound flight

It's the most awaited feature of NV for me.

Essentially, instead of only giving the option for "target-and-fly" navigation, dynamic user input could be used to determine the ships' trajectory. This would make it so I could cruise instead of zipping around, and having directly user-defined and dynamic flight path. (instead of going "over there" I can go "out that way")

problem is, that you can't get "above" a planet, still.. (because of the way planets are drawn: they're not really 3d!!!)

So you'd only be able to move in a "horizontal" matter only, unless the planet display code is rewritten...

I know planets aren't 3d, it uses a "billboard" teqnique right?

I really hope I'm not being irritating, but where would one post said sceanic pictures?

At the bottom of the page there's a button labeled "CD". That's the community disk, also known as C-Disk. Click on the button, and you should be able to upload the pictures. Then you can link to the picture using the syntax Stellanaut just stated.

Step by step stuff...

1) convert the .bmp (screenshot) to a .gif (using image editing software.. "Irfanview" is great for converting!)
2) upload the .gif on the C-disk (look below, next to "new" it says "cd".. Click that and upload your file there..
3) create a thread, or reply somewhere, and add this to the text message:
In other words, if you decided to upload an image by the name of "testimage" (a GIF), you'd get ths:

Right... A bug(?) in NICE.
If i turn on local planets finder in an unchartered system there are some problems with the label count. For example "-1 labeled out of 6".
Porblems also occur if all planets in the system are labelled: " 7 labelled out of 6"
Anyone noticed this before or its just me?

Wasn't that supposed to be fixed?

Edit: Found the problem. Unlabelled systems were showing up as having -1 planets because the shiny new planets_labelled function returned -1 instead of 0 when its parameter was -1.

More technically, planet_labelled has to be given the file-position (in the starmap file) of the system to look for labelled planets belong to it. Unlabelled systems don't have a file-position, so the code which called planets_labelled was passing it -1 instead. planets_labelled returned -1 instead of 0 in that case, so I just had to fix that.

Looking into the Q-shows-not-enough-moons bug now.
