Griff has been working on producing some fantastic models of ships, which use normalmapping and shaders to produce some of the best looking ships available in Oolite. Not all ships are supported yet, announcements are made on the forum, so keep an eye on this thread.
Griff's OXP Downloads
Griff's Normalmapped Ships OXP
Griff's Normalmapped Ships OXP.
Dizzy's Oolite Downloads website featuring the OXP. - Currently down. Use this alternate link to get it as a four part zip archive. The alternative Sidewinder, the Rock Hermit and Alloys still have to be downloaded individually, see below.
Griff's Normalmapped Ships - Individual Downloads.
Box.Net link to the ships available as individual downloads too in case you only want to add one or two of them to your game. Note: the individual ship downloads now require an extra oxp containing only the decal artwork to be installed. You don't need to add this oxp (and in fact you shouldn't) if you're using Dizzy's bundle oxp as the decal artwork is included in its texture folder.
Griff's Other OXPs
Dodo Stations OXP by Griff and CaptKev (1.4Mb).
Retextured Dodecahedron and Icosahedron stations OXP, v1.1. Updated version released 18th May 2010, Griff has fixed a problem with the shaders.
Flying Dutchman OXP (31.0Kb).
Featuring Griff's Wireframe Cobra.
Adds the small chance to meet a Ghost Ship in the Ooniverse. What is it? Some claim that it's the ghost of Commander Peter Jameson, reported lost at the end of the last Thargoid War, others that it is simply a manifestation of all those lost souls who were trapped in the trackless depths of interstellar space. One common story is the trail of bad luck and hideous deaths that follow in the wake of the ship's sightings...
Griff's ArcElite (201.2 Kb).
New versions of the native Oolite ships textured & shaded to resemble how they originally appeared in the Acorn Archimedes version of Elite.
Griff's Boa OXP (2.7Mb).
Box.Net link containing the famous Griff Boa, as featured in the "Oolite - It's not just for triangles anymore" images. Note: the Boa is not included in the Normalmapped Ships OXP as above. Note also that this OXP only works on Oolite 1.74.
Griff's Explosion Debris OXP (1.3Mb).
Box.Net link to an OXP that adds new alloy & debris models to exploding ships. The oxp features some cool scripting and AI coding by Thargoid which chains together various types of exploding junk in some pretty dazzling ways. For more information see this thread on the BB.
Griff's Krait OXP (2.5Mb).
A heavily modified Krait, similar in design to the Griff Boa. Note: the Krait is not included in the Normalmapped Ships OXP as above.
