This OXP gives bounties to some of the normal trade ships in Oolite.


In unaltered Oolite traders added by the system populator are always clean. The player, however, gets marked as offender or fugitive for instance for hauling illicit commodities, or committing small violations.

On the other hand, quite a few traders do have illicit goods in their holds. Have they all scooped these goods, or bought them somewhere else than in the main station? Unlikely. This OXP attaches random bounties between 1 and 55 credits to some traders (currently 12% of all ordinary traders). It does nothing to non-traders, and it does nothing if the trader already has a bounty. Moray Medical Boats are excluded, because they're expected to legally carry narcotics.

The OXP does not change the cargo of ships with bounties. So they are not more likely to carry illicit commodities than without the OXP. It only attaches a random bounty to them and leaves it to the player's imagination how each single ship could have obtained its bounty.

Minimum Requirements

Offender_traders.oxp requires at least Oolite 1.74.
