Nice job, Murgh, but can you make the images link to the article instead of the image? --Selezen 10:38, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

it wan't me (although it's looking spookily similar to the oofleet page now) but MtKlima and Galileo. making the images link shouldn't be tough, but I'm not so sure if I like the columned look. gets assymetrical and cluttery..--Murgh 10:49, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

I'm going to standardise the sizes of the columns, and I'll make the images links too. --Galileo 13:24, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

yes, that's much nicer. I guess you'll do the lower section when you get into linkifying the images, eh? have you tried it without any visible borderwidth though? still not sure framing them in like that is the most aesthetic choice..--Murgh 17:47, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

avatarmaking

BTW: how do you guys actually produce these pictures?--Rxke 10:01, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

not difficult once you're going (ie a hassle to do it for just one ship, but faster when doing several)
-take the pic (best in demoships sequence or shipyard, or wings, not so nice in oolitespace since the lighting is often lacking and you get plumes and such).
-open and crop in photoshop, remove surrounding "paint" with a magic wand (ie make all non-ship transparent). I like to go over the edges with a blurring tool to avoid the harsh pixels. contrast, lightness and hue tweak (esp for pics taken in wings)
-resize and fit into a 100x100px frame, save the png..

wow, I didn't realise the results could be that good. Thanks, time to make me a SC avatar!--Rxke 11:16, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

that would be the popular SuperCobra? ;) do remember to take your oolite pics in fullscreen, of course..--Murgh 11:26, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Usually when I take my screenshots from Wings, the resizing of the image (down, of course) takes care of the pixelisation on edges. --Selezen 17:42, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Ionics?

Just testing a proggie to display OXPs using (*cough*) DirectX. I updated/added a few missing images, such as the Llama (didn't have the proper bg) and the Super Cobra. [Edit 22 Jan: WTF!? No sky blue background in any of the images but mine!? ... oh wait... guess what my browser is...] [Edit:Later that same day. Re-uploaded the images, now with a proper mask. Checked them with both a good and an bad browser; no diffs anymore. JW]

Whatever happened to the Ionics ships? I can't find them on Oosat. (Besides that, a lot of Oosat links are dead!)

Ship names

Hi, why do some wiki pages like Fer-de-Lance (Oolite) end with Oolite? Is this with ships available in Oolite and Standard, but with different stats? This page has also some linking errors: some ships from the standard-section are linked to Oolite-ships - even if the Oolite ships have no pages and the standard ships are existing :/ Greetings: Makarius 16:29, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi, Which ship pages are affected by this? The many edits I've done the last couple of days is the first wiki work I've ever done, so it wouldn't surprise me too much if I've messed things a bit out. Perhaps it will be solved as soon as the empty pages get a category? I'm sorry about the inconvenience and will do my best to sort it out as quickly as possible. 18:00, 23 February 2007 Dr. Nil

well - maby I misunderstood the reason of this page. The first section are links to the Oolite-types of standard ships (?) - in this case the links are fine. You can sign discussion comments with ~~~~ this writes your name and the date (or everybody has to check the history of the discussion to see who wrote what).

Universes

I think it would be nice to have the ships from alternate universes, such as StarWars, Star Trek and Firefly and so on in a different block. Does anyone agree?
