You can fire at waypoints. If your missiles have thermal sensors too you might get lucky.

The queen is a beast, but there's something else out there too if you're lucky ;D

It's hard to stealth any large ship, you still have over 1000 thermal emission there wen running at full power.

I was looking at the members list a few days ago, literally 80% of the forum's accounts have zero posts, a lot of those might be dormant spambots, or even legitimate users who just haven't gotten around to posting
Theres really no reason not to delete inactive 0 post accounts though, nothing will be lost and they can just re register if they intend to become active.

I'm on core and default, and it's all working fine now, I don't know. Hey the medals are back, I didn't even notice their absence. Nifty.

This isn't exactly a major problem, and I'll assume it's related to the settings file being nuked, but I noticed that I can't hand out thanks for posts anymore. However will I express gratitude to Erik for his prompt action in getting the forum running?  ???

In real life your diplomats can generally be spies anyway for your side or for theirs, if you really want to spy on somebody it helps immensely to have good enough relations with them that they don't mind having an embassy right inside their capital. Of course they assign espionage assets watching or infiltrating that embassy, and you do the same to their embassy on your world.

It used to work but I haven't tried the current version in xp.

Good to see you got it fixed.

Just doing without the system window will be hard, but something else thats very important is the ability to quickly find the information you need by glancing at specific areas of a window.
I very frequently open the ship window or whatever just to glance at a single thing then close the window a second later, I can't imagine how frustrating it would be to require the entire contents of that page to be read out.
What aurora really needs for blind accessibly is a text based user interface, similar to a simple OS.
For instance you are presented with a list that corresponds to the main game windows.
(1) Economic
(2) system maps
(3) commanders
(4) class design
(5) ships
You can enter 5 into the console. Then get the following
(1) List ships
(2) List classes
(3) Ships requiring repair
(4) Fuel situation
etc, But if you remember a ships name you can just type that in and get it's main detail screen straight away
Then again instead of just listing every detail you have options. Perhaps you just want to check how much fuel the USS Harrison has left, or ammo? or damage? targets in range? Maybe multiple arguments can be checked at the same time
uss harrison fuel ammo damage targets
Getting the following
USS harrison : Fuel 15% 150,000 : Magazine 10% 53 ship killer s6 etc.
Considering Aurora is all inside a database it shouldn't be too hard for somebody to make something that can trawl through it for relevant information.

Those text files need to be in the folderyou have aurora installed to, just like for adding ship names. So the Same folder as Aurora.exe is in.

If the missile has sensors you don't even need the target to still be detected. Though good luck scoring a hit when your target is invisible if your missiles are practically blind

Technically this is a suggestion, though it's related to the last change so I'm putting it here. Sicne Salacia is finally be updated to dwarf planet status perhaps it's moon Actaea could be added, as well as giving Makemake it's moon M2.
