Tionisla Reporter

From Elite Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search



This oxp adds a simple mission for a starting commander. As the name already suggest, does the mission start at Tionisla, where the Tionisla Chronicle is settled.


Have you always wanted to explore the universe beyond its boundaries? Than is this mission something for you. The head of the Tionisla Chronicle will send you out to fetch material for an article that will make headlines. And you are the author of it.


This mission was mainly written to use some of the new 1.75 features. At the same time it means the commander will see stuff that was not possible in older missions. One of the things is the camera that can make a screenshot. This is a function that actually saves a picture in the screenshot folder. However, it was decided that the actual saving a picture will not be possible in the final release version of Oolite, only in the test versions. For the mission itself it is not important if the actual picture is there.

This is an easy mission that does not add additional pirates and does not lead you through pirate systems. It also starts near the Lave system. Therefor it should be very suitable for a starting commander.
