Talk:Pilot's Reference Manual

From Elite Wiki

OK, this is the flight reference manual. It's mostly prose as opposed to hard instructions, and sets the scene for the pilot, fleshing out the technical aspects of the Cobra in particular.

It needs a lot of work to make it a usable manual. It was written according to Winston's desire to have a more 'technical' manual.

I have another three documents to convert over to Wiki format. One of these is the actual flight training manual, which is the one I intended to be the key guide and tutorial manual.

Feel free to spice it up and give it that Oolite community touch!

The other two, the installation and setup manual and the Ship Guide manual, have both actually been covered in separate sections of the Wiki, so I won't repeat them as yet. When this and the training manual have been done, I will be pleased to convert them all to a 'printable' format and PDF them up for inclusion on Oosat. --Selezen 11:29, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

very cool --Murgh 12:09, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

Hey, I see my concept line art of the astrogation console has been given a makeover! Thanks, guys! Glad it was deemed good enough to become 'canon'! --Selezen 00:56, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

oh yes, the design was copied religiously ;)--Murgh 09:14, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Nice one!

Would be great as a booklet.


The image (missile/mine/bomb) has a bug in it - the first one is indeed a missile, a standard one. The second symbol is an ECM hardened missile rather than a mine, and the third one is a mine. Energy bombs don't get pylon mounted at all. Winston 11:15, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

fixed that and I think a few other small errors. the Aegis is the S, isn't it, and not the mass-lock lamp? also, I felt it was based on an unfamiliar HUD, and not the one a new pilot is going to see..

of course, a brand new HUD is coming any day now, so this won't last long --Murgh 23:16, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

The new HUD looks exactly like the standard one - just take a screenshot of Oolite sans OXPs. --Aegidian 08:12, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
