The Tionisla Chronicle Array is a massive communication platform used by the Tionisla Chronicle to distribute their news and information around the charts. If was mentioned and described in Drew Wagar's Oolite Saga.

This OXP will add a few new broadcast arrays throughout the eight galactic charts.

The famous Tionisla Chronicle Array can be found in orbit on the dark side of Tionisla (Chart 1)

(StarSports being my own 'channel' creation)

Please Note that:

  • Broadcast Arrays have a hexagon icon for the Advanced Space Compass to help you locate them.
  • No market or extra equipment (except fuel) are available at the TCA (though other OXP's might effect this)

Version History


  • (phkb) Updated populator to allow for saving at stations. Texture update. Packaged as OXZ.


  • The docking display 'billboards' should now be correctly scrolling for older OpenGL versions


  • Another slight fix, hoping to get more of those .fragment issues resolved


  • Slight fix to shader .fragment files for older OpenGL issues


The Tionisla Chronicle Array was created by Storm.

My thanks to:

  • Drew for letting me use the TCA from his stories!
  • DaddyHoggy, Svengali, Drew and Disembodied for GNN, Rooters and Snoopers
  • DaddyHoggy again for Views of the Worlds and the Daily Wail
  • Smivs for G5TVN
  • Arhuman, Griff and Thargoid for the various shader and script snippets (large and small) I borrowed from their own OXP's to get this one working!
  • Okti for the assistance in putting the TCA into orbit in the right position and getting this Beta properly in order for initial release!
  • Cim for the workaround script advice for the logo changing on the docking display screen
  • Fatleaf and Commander McLane for the help in bugfixing shader scripts
  • ... and various others for the bug reports!
