Assassin Shipset Pack

From Elite Wiki

Adds ships from Random Hits, Feudal States and other ship OXPs to the Ooniverse for ambiance and challenge on the parcel and passenger missions.


Inspired by spara's Random Hits Shipset OXP, also by the various authors' ships OXPs.

This OXP introduces:

  • dangerous assassins in more wealthy anarchy systems.
  • wild feudal raiders in feudal systems;
  • armoury and stealth ships in higher tech-level unstable systems (Multi-Government, Dictatorship, Communist);

So this OXP adds more regional specificity for the assassins roles, even assigning them a home system (WIP)!

  • These ships may also make incursions into systems within 7 LY range from their home system.
  • Feudal ships specifications are slightly rebalanced. Probability of incursions depends on the local system government: more stable systems are safer.
  • Also added these sniper gun ships (Asp SG and Ferdelance SG) as an external dependency into the RH(Random Hits) missions.

Required OXP's

You need Random Hits, Feudal States and Thargoid's Stealth OXPs/OXZs installed to use this OXP!

Optional OXP's

Expanding the amount of armoury and stealth ships

The expansion of the amount of ships by steps:
Decrease a weight of roles slightly in the shipdata-overrides.plist.
Increase a weight of role and adjustment of the spawning by condition script in the selective systems.
            - Aphid, Cobra Clipper, Cobra Rapier, Cobra Cutlass.
  • Staer9's Shipset v1.3.3 (oolite.oxp.staer9.staer9_shipset) will add 13 ships to the RH-missions.

Released the some a laser setting from this OXP for the armoury and stealth ships.

If New lasers OXP is not installed, then this OXP attempts to setup the default laser (Pulse, Beam, Military), otherwise one sometimes gets a heavy-weapon assassin in the gameplay (seen shipdata.plist).

The some ship included to the blacklist for avoid a weapons setup by worldscript.

Interaction with Missions OXPs:

Testing an interaction with the GalCop Missions OXP for appearing assassins in the Hit Team(WIP).

Special Note

This OXP is what is called a "work-in-progress". What that means is, what you have in your hands may not be the final version of the OXP. In fact there might be parts that are broken and could potentially unbalance the game. This isn't by-design, and hopefully there aren't any issues like that, but be aware that in many ways this is an experimental OXP. I'm changing a lot of core functionality which opens the door for all sorts of unforeseen consequences, particularly when it comes to other OXP's. If you decide to help me in the process of polishing this package, please report any bugs or unexpected outcomes. Don't assume someone else has noticed it - if two people report a bug it makes tracking the bug down so much easier!


  • Some assassins have an naval energy unit (NEU) simulated with an energy recharge rate equal to 10.79 (4.15 * 2.6).
  • So, for correct settings of the recharge rates it is recommended to install the N-Shields or NPC Energy Units (upgrade needed) OXPs, etc.

Gameplay and Balance Indicator


While these McNasties apparently do not bother you so much if you just ignore them as a starting player (they are too expensive to hire for them to go after you for your early contracts)! But as you get more lucrative contracts, or if you do start fighting, they are really rather vicious!
