I Play Oolite (v1.84)
After many witchspace jumps, I traded down to a Cobra Mk. III, and named her, Thalo Blue Rising. She has, however, been modified extensively. Not directly by me per se, but by employing one of the popular new Ship Configuration garages. The caveat being that any hardware or technical upgrade will have an additional cost, mainly the loss of cargo space and a slight reduction in speed and maneuverability. You can negate the latter by having a better engine installed, which I did and also a superior energy plant. I have taken my new ship into dangerous places and she has more than proved her mettle against many a foe.
2086464: A very brief stay in chart 6 (Solans), heading for a Rock Hermit in the Soesgera system (image above). From there making for Inesbe, a tech level 12, Rich Industrial world, to have a Galactic Hyperdrive installed. Soesgera is a good example of the beautiful, procedurally generated planets native to the core game. The Rock Hermit is my own creation, but most of it was borrowed from Anarchies OXP where it served as a salvage station. It is one of only a few objects in my ooniverse that was not made by Griff Industries. It rocks!
