Rattatoons

  • Rat Compression. A Fuel Rats cartoon

    Some features are so self-understanding that one easily forgets that they have been implemented, and welcomed, years after the game's release.
    Multicrew is such an interesting feature coming up with 2.3. Yet what three Rats should do in a single Ratship is a bit unclear … besides racing and showering everything with limpets, that is. Mischief expected.

  • A Rat trapped by a White Dwarf Cone

    Rats are hard tempted when it comes to longer jump ranges. It is the ultimate bait—apart from certain candy bars and, of course, fuel. And so, after a row of successful rescues, the huge Rattalooga of Uvelius Sång couldn't withstand the temptation to drop by a white dwarf to supercharge his FSD. Yet to bait the Thargoids, he decided to stay a bit longer in the cone ...

  • Future. A Fuel Rats cartoon

    It has been an excellent year for the Fuel Rats, with most honourable accomplishments, loads of Snickers being consumed, many happy clients and some grudging fleas being cared for. Our Rats really deserve a good time at a cosy fireplace!*

    All this also thanks to the efforts of RatTech, who optimized our beloved Mechasqueak even further, making Dispatching and Ratting even more of a delight: Automatic filling of paperwork, auto-registering in IRC, !fact shortcuts and much more. Yet the picture would be all too happy if there wouldn’t be something lurking in the shadows of the future …

  • Ghost Rats. A Fuel Rats Cartoon

    With Elite: Dangerous reaching out to the X-Box platform, PC Rats couldn't contact X-Box clients, since the two platforms are playing in different instances.

    After Elite for X-Box went live, we had a tsunami of cases: A load of players played Elite: Dangerous for the first time. So Rats playing on the X-Box had a high case load—together with a very special challenge.

  • Fail. A Fuel Rats Cartoon

  • -Black- Rat Holes. A Fuel Rats cartoon.

    Some time ago, the game had difficulty instancing players when dropping on their beacon. The Fuel Rats were one of the groups (if not the one) which supplied Frontier with extensive data to solve this technical issue. Today, Instancing is mostly not a big problem.

    These Rattatoons turn out to have some sort of scrying quality. Last time, right after the Shame Rattatoon, a veteran Rat appeared at a rescue without limpets, for the first time in ages (or ever?) for him.
    Now, just when I finished preparing the first step for this cartoon, I was caught in a very strange dc phenomenon.
