Helps survival at the outset of the game (fewer pirate attacks).


This OXP improves the chance for survival at the initial phase of game.

Oolite assigns you a reputation which develops as you play: this OXP excludes the roles "player" and "player-unknown" from the oolite "pirate-victim" role group in the role-categories.plist. This reduces the probability of a pirate attack in the early phase of the game. These roles are gradually replaced by the roles "trader", "miner" and possibly "courier" during your play, so the probability of a pirate attack will increase with time… but you will have more time to outfit your ship first.

You are not totally immune to any danger on your maiden flight of course - Thargoids, for example, attack any ship within their scan radius.

Gameplay and Balance indicator


Fewer attacks from pirates at the outset!

But is this realistic? Surely pirates will go for the easiest prey?
