The new range of escape capsules, developed by the The GalTech Industries Corporation, will offer varying levels of comfort and performance. However even the base model, the GalTech GIC-E1, provides more spacious accommodation and outperforms standard issued escape pods with respect to both speed and manoeuvrability. This results in a faster, safer and more comfortable journey to the nearest safe haven and comes complete with personal ship and equipment insurance.

Also available is the GalTech GIC-E2 escape pod which is equipped with an upgraded power system which results in a marked improvement compared to the GIC-E1 with respect to thrust, speed and energy levels.

Standard Equipment


Ship Variants

The GIC-E2 escape pod is available as both a player and NPC escape pod.

Minimum Requirements

The OXP was designed to work on Oolite 1.76 but should also be compatible with future versions (The shipdata.plist is incompatible with versions prior to v1.75 because of the use of the scan_class key). No additional OXPs are required to be installed in order for this OXP to run.


Unzip the file, and then move the folder "GalTech_Escape_Pods_V1.10.oxp" to the AddOns directory of your Oolite installation. Then start the game and the ships should be added.
