What are OXPs?

OXP icon

An OXP (Oolite eXpansion Pack) is an enhancement to the game Oolite. Typically, an OXP is downloaded as a ZIP file, which is expanded and placed in Oolite's AddOns folder. On the Mac the OXP is a shown as an application, which takes the form of the icon shown here. On Windows the OXP appears as a normal folder ending ".oxp". An OXP could be a new game object (such as a ship, space station or a moon), a mission, or a combination of several elements. OXPs can use all of the facilities of Oolite, including some that are not used in the standard, unexpanded game. Whatever your OS, you need to move the OXP into Oolite's AddOns folder. Oolite will only read an OXP if you move the .oxp folder (or Application on the Mac) into Oolite's AddOns folder.

Downloading OXPs

On this page you will find download links to all the OXPs. Most OXPs can also be found at The Oolite Satellite Resource Site (Oosat2) or the older Captain Hack OoSat Site (Oosat1).

Please note however that neither of these sites have been updated for a long time, nor will they be. All updating is now done on this page of the Wiki. You should use the link shown on this page to get the latest version of the OXP. For example, the versions of Assassins.oxp, Ionics.oxp, Thargoid Wars.oxp and Spyhunter.oxp on the Captain Hack site are old versions (and contain bugs). The links on this page will take you to the latest versions.

The download will create a .ZIP file. Unzip it and a new folder will appear. Open this folder and you will see a folder ending .oxp and usually a README file. Move the folder ending .oxp into the Oolite AddOns folder. Next time you load up Oolite the new features added by the OXP will be added to the game. Be sure to read the README file, as this will tell you what the OXP does. If you are updating an old version of an OXP on Oolite 1.69.1 onwards, hold down the SHIFT key whilst Oolite loads up for the first time after installing in order to ensure the cache is updated.

Below you will see a table of all the OXPs set out in alphabetical order. The link in the first column will take you to a Wiki Page giving you information on the OXP and a download link. If no Wiki page is currently available for the OXP, the link will take you directly to a download link.

The links in the next column will take you to Wiki Pages giving information on ships or stations added by the OXP. Many of the Mission OXPs will contain lots of other ships, stations or weapons that are not listed here. The Wiki only gives information on the Ships listed in the galaxy wide "Jane's Spacecraft". Many military, criminal and corporate powers do not make information on the craft they build or use available to the galactic public! Below the Main Table is a list of download links to all the OXPs broken down by category.

Table of all OXPs

Information / Download Ships Stations Short Description
Aegidian's Specials Mussurana

Asp Mark II Special

Ships. The powerful Mussurana and an improved Asp.
Aegidian's X-Ships Python ET Special

Cobra Mk II

Asp Mark II Special

Sidewinder Special

Ships. An improved Python, the experimental Cobra Mk II, the Asp Mark II Special and the Sidewinder Special.
Amen Brick's Pirate Clan One: The Blitzspears (NEW 07/08) Assassin, Hoodlum, Mugger, Scoundrel and Spiv Ships. The first of the Pan-Galaxy Outlaw clans to rise through the leadership of some diabolical criminal genius. What are his, or indeed hers or, further indeed, its future plans? Will their nefarious example be followed by others? The answers are out there...

All ships in this version are playable. Future versions (probably modular for memory saving reasons) will have more clans, the ability to join clans (if I master the arcane art of programming), stations and missions. Stay untuned, folks.

Amen Brick's Megaships v1.2 (Amended 07/08) The Battleship, The Biodome, The Cruiseship, The Hospitalship, The Supercargo, The Superlifter and the Yacht:Amen Class Ships. Graceful giants cross the galaxies before our eyes. The forlorn Biodome, destined to forever wander the Ooniverse. The Cruiseship taking citizens to holiday planets. The Supercargo ferrying aid to the needy. The private Yacht filled with luxury and the prosaic Superlifter than helps giant ships get to their new homes or their final resting place. Now amended to make spectacular explosions as they try to dock less likely (sorry!)
Amiga Replacement Sounds Sound Set, based on the sound set used in the Amiga version of the original Elite.
Anarchies.oxp Hacker Viper

Salvager Phoenix

Salvager Tugger

Hacker Outpost

Salvage Gang

Sentinel Station

Renegade Station

Feature/Ships/Stations. Complete overhaul of Oolite's legal rating system. It gets harder to become clean again. But there are some new ways to achieve this as well: Hacker Outposts can be found in the higher tech Anarchy systems, the criminals willing to clear a fugitive's legal record. For a price of course! Salvage Gangs are spread all over the Ooniverse, providing good equipment deals. Those in Anarchy systems offer a service similar to the Hacker Outposts as well. Sentinel Stations are placed in some of the worst Anarchies. But beware! Some of them have been overthrown by the pirates and are now Renegade Stations. Good news for the pirates among the players, because these are as close to a safe-haven for you as it gets! All of these also feature their own ships.
Anti-Missile System Equipment. Adds the anti-missile system, designed to offer a defence against non-standard missiles via automatically firing interceptor darts (6 per launcher, replenishable). Requires Missile Analyser OXP by Eric Walch.
Aphid Escort Service Ships. Adds the stylish Aphid escort service.

Ships from the Aquarian Shipbuilding Corporation of Aqualina, G3. Also includes a brand new station (the Aquarian Shipbuilding Corp. HQ) plus a mission based out of it. And who knows, there may be a few more surprises in there too...

It gives you the opportunity to re-visit places you have visited before, and re-meet people you had contact with during these missions. And of course it will let you meet various other people, and lead you to a lot of new places, some of which you probably haven't visited before."

One common story is the trail of bad luck and hideous deaths that follow in the wake of the ship's sightings...

Sung's Detailed Textures Replacement textures for all Classic Elite Ships. The author's web-site no longer has a link to his textures. The link will download them directly from Lestradae's hosting site.
Sung's Detailed Textures (Shader Version) Same as the above oxp, only now with shader support. Normal maps & Effects maps by ADCK. (Includes shaders which require Oolite 1.69 or later)
Sunskimmers Feature. Normally in Oolite ships tend to stick to the space lanes and so are rarely encountered on the way to the Sun. This OXP adds ships to the sun / planet corridor increasing the chance of meeting other ships whilst sun-skimming.
S.T.E S.T.E Ships. The S.T.E addon ship a step up from the Cobra III improved trading capabilities also has increased speed over Cobra, is also available in 3 colour options blue, red and yellow.
SuperCobra SuperCobra Ships. The awesome Super Cobra. A beefed up version of the Cobra Mk III featuring larger engines, more cargo space and stronger shields.
Swift Swift Ships. As the name implies, a very fast ship often used by pirates or bounty hunters. Although fast, cargo space is limited and the shield is nominal.
System Redux System Redux Texture the home planet, add a planet/moon combination to each system.
Taranis Corporation HQ Taranis Corporation HQ Mission. Adds the vast orbital Taranis Corporation HQ to the Lerelace system in Galaxy 1. A mission is also available for law abiding Commanders with a rating of Competent or better. You must also have the Outrider OXP installed for this OXP to work properly.
Target Autolock Equipment. A software update for the standard scanner targeting enhancement equipment that automatically locks onto attacking ships if you have no prior target selected.
Teretrurus Mk.I Teretrurus MK.I Ships. A medium fighter / trader somewhat faster and tougher than the Cobra Mk III, but with a smaller cargo bay.
Terrapin Trader Terrapin Ships. A medium fighter / trader. A good upgrade from the Cobra Mk III.
Tesoura Tesoura Ships. A slow, but well shielded trade ship.
Thargoid Carrier Thargoid Carrier Ships. Arms the Thargoids with a vast carrier capital vessel. Many OXPs increase the fire-power available to the GalCop Navy. If you chose to play with these OXPs installed, then you should really give the Bugs a chance and allow them access to this mighty craft!
Thargoid Wars V4.4 (Updated) Mission. War with the Thargoids intensifies featuring new attack and defense missions. To avoid young Jamesons being out-gunned, the OXP missions will run in all Galaxies except Galaxy 1. Updated from the version on Oosat1. It is important that you use the updated version as the old version will clash with many other missions.
Thargorn Threat v1.3 (updated) Terroriser Frigate

Thargoid Thargorn Battleship

Thargoid Thorgon Cruiser

Ships. Redresses the game imbalance caused by the number of OXPs arming the Navy with warships. These Thargoid craft are very powerful and re-establish the Thargoid's place as a threat to mankind. Best played with the Behemoth OXP installed, for epic space battles.
Tianve Navy Station Planets / Stations. Adds scenery, including a pulsar, to the Galaxy 1 system of Tianve. A Station orbits the pulsar and fleets of pleasure liners can be seen taking tourists on flights around the pulsar. There are various adverts in the system, along with two extra 'space lanes', one between the planet and the pulsar and another between the pulsar and the witchpoint.
Tiger Tiger Mark I Ships. A truly awesome (and very expensive) multi-role craft.
Tionisla Orbital Graveyard Feature. Adds the graveyard to the Galaxy 1 system of Tionisla, as described in the Dark Wheel. Long dead Commanders are buried in their rusting ships amongst monuments, Stars of David, Crucifixes and other religious symbols. Security patrols will make short work of any Commander foolish enough to desecrate the tombs.
Torus Station Torus Station Stations. Adds a vast 2001 style space station to very high tech level systems.
Total patrol Feature. Replaces the default police AIs with a totalPatrolAI which lets police ships patrol between all three major points of the system: planet, witchpoint and sun.
Trade Outpost v1.1 Trade Outpost Griff trade outpost without ads.
Traffic Control Station upgrade. Adds traffic control personnel to each system main station. They are happy to talk new Commanders (and older ones who've got too reliant on Docking Computers and then lost them) through approaching and manual docking with the station. There's even a cheery goodbye when you leave, just don't dawdle and block the station approach lane!
Trans-Hab Station Transhab Station Stations. Adds a large station with rotating arms to some medium tech level systems.
Transports CoachWhip

Coral

Woma

Ships. Adds more variety to the game. Passenger liners can be seen in the space lanes of the safer systems transporting paying customers to their destinations. Also features Moray Transporters and Large Woma fuel tankers to bring much needed supplies and fuel to space stations.

Weeviloid Weeviloid Hunter

Weeviloid Scoutship

Ships. The scout-ship is a light trade ship. The hunter is a fearsome multi-gunned war ship. Little is known about the Weeviloids and many Commanders meeting them have found them hostile.

Welcome Mat Misc. Software upgrade for the communications systems to expand the information given to the commander on arrival from witchspace into a new system. Augments the system name message with planetary biographical details via the buoy network, plus the latest safety and alien presence information from Galcop. Also fully compatible with OXPConfig.

Wolfwood's Variants v1.5 Asp Mk I

Feature. This OXP adds a lot of variety to the Universe. Witch-point and navigation beacons are replaced with giant bill boards displaying adverts.

Every set features 50 different adverts and also adds a different type of constore to the universe (Set A introduces the Pi-42 constore, Set B the Tescoo Ooxpress constore etc). A constore is a dockable commercial base which is added to the space lanes of most systems with a large population. Also from version 4 and above of this oxp each constore has its own security force, the ships of which are skinned in the colours of the store they protect, and billboards will occasionally appear in asteroid fields of Corporate Systems.

Installing an OXP

Unzip the OXP and place it in the folder named AddOns. Sometimes the zipped files contain several folders, make sure you only copy the folder -or file for Macintoshes- ending with .oxp into the AddOns folder. This folder is found in different locations, depending on the platform:

Mac OS X

Found in the folder that contains the Oolite application.

Troubleshooting: If you get an error saying "The item could not be moved because "AddOns" cannot be modified", that can happen if you weren't the user that installed Oolite. The solution is to put the OXP's of your choice in ~/Library/Application Support/Oolite/AddOns/ instead (you may need to create this folder). The error could also be triggered because you’re running from the disk image, you’ll need to copy the game somewhere else. Having done so, if you still get the error, use the Get Info command on the AddOns folder, open the Ownership & Permissions pane and check that it says You Can: Read & Write.

Linux

The OXP directory can be found in $HOME/.Oolite/AddOns. for all current versions of OOlite

Windows

If the installable package was used (post Jan 06) then the AddOns folder needs to be created in C:\Programs Files\Oolite. Note that this applies if the default installation location is used. If the install location is changed then use the path to the Oolite folder that corresponds to your installation. If the GNUStep dedicated versions (pre-Jan 2006) is used, then the AddOns folder must be created in the oolite.app folder.


After unzipping the file, make sure that it is the OXP folder that put into the AddOns directory - some zipped OXPs can contain a top level folder with a readMe file, and the actual OXP folder is a level further down. If this is the case, move the item with the .oxp extension into the AddOns folder.

Caveats

If you purchase a ship that is an OXP ship and save the game, you will only be able to load that commander as long as this OXP is installed in AddOns. If it's not, Oolite will give you an error instead of trying to load the commander.

Creating an OXP

It is intended to be easy to create expansion packs. With a few simple tools, a player can make small or big changes, and customize the gaming experience.
