This is my personal opinion, however, it might be useful for players who have not yet discovered the richness the OXPs bring to the game.

NOTE: With 1.80, many of these are available as OXZ from the built-in Expansion Manager.

I recommend all new (or returning) players install at least some of the mods in the first section. The other mods are just my personal recommendations.

Bring Oolite into the 21st century

These are mostly cosmetic and should run on every machine capable of running vanilla Oolite.

Better Screens

Better Buoys

Display Reputation

Market Observer

Military Fuel Injectors

Naval Grid

Random Ship Names

Famous Planets

Distant Suns

This is a list of mods a player may want to install if he/she wants an experience closer to FE 2/FFE.
