This expansion pack adds 8 ships to the Universe,

the Bushmaster Miner (ArcElite)

Cat/Cougar (Elite2)

Chameleon (EliteA)

Ghavial (EliteA)

Iguana (EliteA)

Monitor (EliteA)

Ophidian (EliteA)

Salamander* (EliteA)

of these, only the Bushmaster is an NPC only, due to the Miner's Guild restrictions preventing 'just anybody' from flying it. *Salamander is, from what I've been able to find, a 'myth-name'.

the models are either taken by eye-measurement via the great collection of ships by John Mackay at http://mackayj.doosh.net/, or in the case of the EliteA ships, true to the original given coordinates.

the original designs are, from what I can tell, by Warren Burch & Clive Gingras for the Bushmaster, by Ian Bell for the Cat/Cougar, and the rest by Angus Duggan,

The OXP was written by murgh.

Difficulty Rating

"Medium" This OXP adds 8 new ships, most the ships added are within the power-range of the Classic Elite Ships with most profound exception the Iguana. The Iguana carries a twin laser and it is extremely dangerous as a pirate.This OXP is a SHIPS OXP. Install it and everyone can fly these ships, the Player and NPCs alike.

Installing and Playing

To play the OXP, unzip the download file. This will create a folder named "oldships.oxp" and a readme.Move the "oldships.oxp" folder to AddOns. As with all OXPs, its the folder ending .oxp that you need to put in Oolite's AddOns folder, otherwise Oolite will not read it.
