Guide to Unlisted OXPs

From Elite Wiki

Here are links to over 300 OXPs which are not in the in-game Expansions Manager. Maybe 200 work fully with Oolite v.1.90!

Note on Dates

  • 2004 First versions of Oolite come out. OXPs all written in legacy script. Ships, HUDs, missions, sounds, systems (Lave, Diso) etc all increasingly scriptable.
  • 2006 Linux & Windows versions come out in 2006 with the first stable release (v.1.65). Oosat hosts 70 OXPs (mostly ships).
  • 2007 v.1.67: Shaders. Initial introduction of Javascript.
  • 2011 v.1.76: First stable version since 2006 (Monkeyspider Javascript engine integrated for better OXPs). Solar systems more modifiable. Now well over 250 OXPs including the Tionisla Orbital Graveyard (TOGY).
  • 2014 v.1.80: Major Rejig: First "modern" version: OXZ's & Expansions Manager, better AI for NPCs (tougher pirates!), many changes to core game (eg MFD's introduced).
  • 2015 v.1.82: New trading/commodities scripting deprecates older markets, but allows more tweaking. F3-F8 pages increasingly modifiable. Scenarios introduced (alas, nobody writes one!)
  • The majority of changes since v.1.82 have focused on major improvements in graphics, not radical changes to gameplay.
Eg multiple lasers & mobile cameras were introduced with v.1.84, v.1.86 allowed better HUDs, v.1.88 had better fleeing AI, v.1.90 has more sophistication for weaponry & commerce.

List of Lists of .oxp's

This list overlaps with the more obscure elements of the OXP list. The Expansion Manager OXZ list also overlaps with the updated versions of the OXP List.
For older lists (almost entirely of older versions of the oxp's listed above) see the bottom of this page. These may be needed if you are playing older versions of Oolite (the oldest do not recognise the contents of the Managed AddOns folder).

Activities

  • Naval Academies - Dr Beeb's 2009 tweak on User:Thargoid's civilian Lave Academy - 8 lore-ridden academies in each galaxy
  • Astronaut - put on a spacesuit, jump out of the orbital and see where you end up (hint: needs Planetfall)!
  • (WIP) Corporate Trading Outpost OXP (Pleb, 2012) - buy your own station
  • GalCop Rewards - Phantorgorth's lottery reward system to cut down on minor misdemeanours (2012)
  • Gas Giant Skimming: (Requirement: Ore Processor OXP by Eric Walch) Allows players to skim fuel, and possibly other commodities, from gas giant-type planets. See Deep Horizon collection below (2011)
  • Hermitage (Phkb, 2019) gives you the opportunity to own and manage your own Rock Hermit.
  • LaveInitialShipyard.oxz by Phkb (2020) - ensures that there will always be an Adder & a Cobra MkI on sale in the Lave shipyard.
  • Mining OXP by DocWild (2010) - mining in space (Download)
  • Penalize Death.oxp Making death hurt (2012). By Spara.
  • Pirate Player.oxp by Phkb (2018) - one of his many experimental OXPs.
  • PirateTraps by popsch (2006 or earlier: see under other OXPs) - no license. No BB thread. Makes the game tougher.
  • Safe Docking - laws for docking and fines for transgressions by Phantorgorth (2012)
  • Solar Harvest (downloaded 83 times) by Ocz (2016): Skimming thread. The .oxp has tweaks such as preprocessed and processed plasmas!
  • Station Spotter OXP - an add-on to Stations for Extra Planets (and mentioned there) which tallies other stations visited in-system. (2017?).
  • Space Invaders Asteroids3D OXP - shoot-em up (but beware of the flying saucers). Thanks to Maik, our wiki-wizard, for a better link.
  • TrumbleTreats by Arexack Heretic (2010) - take the role of trumblepusher, breed the fluffy little blighters and sell them to unsuspecting locals and seasoned commanders who should know better. Buggy, alas!

• Economics & Trade

  • AI Trading Assistant helped navigate the older markets (before v.1.81)
  • First Finance OXP (downloaded 77 times) by Ocz: start your game with a massive loan! (2014)
  • In-System Traders by Spara (2014) adds in-system traders to a system with many stations.
  • New Deal - Vincentz's attempt to rework the economics. Very nice icons! Unfinished (2015).
  • Real-Life Economics - Phasted's attempt to rework the economics. Dynamic & logical. Buggy (2014).
  • Risky Business.oxz (Phkb's collection below, 2020) aims to make Multi-Gov, Feudal and Anarchy systems more rewarding for traders, by tweaking prices on a few goods. Goods that are already over the average could be increased. Goods that are below the average could be reduced. Not all goods will be impacted at all locations.
  • Ye Olde Hermit markets - Spara's rejig of the newer sparser rock hermit markets (just miners!) back to the older more profitable version (2015&17).

Mechanics

  • Configurable Populator makes some populator settings easily adjustable (requires Oolite 1.84 and Library OXP). 110 downloads. Discussion here (2016).
  • Extended Shipyards by Capt. Murphy (2012). Allows test flights & ship hire. May no longer be compatible.
  • Friend or Foe by Tricky (2012). Enhances ship-group interaction. Requires some tweaking of ship scripts.
  • Pirate Ambushes: Introduces a new tactic for pirates in lower-government systems- Hijacking the Witchspace buoy and moving it to a more 'advantageous' position. See Deep Horizon collection below (2011).
  • Population Control.oxz (Phkb's collection below, 2019) is intended to limit the size of pirate groups in safer systems. The number of police patrols is also increased slightly.
  • Route Planner OXP by Alnivel (2022). Recalculates the route to your final destination at each stop, deviations thus being included.
  • Space Lane Adherance Bonus.oxz (Phkb's collection below, 2016) was intended as a way of dealing with the go off-lane to avoid pirates recommendation, normally given to new pilots who are struggling with combat in the early part of the game. It encourages staying on the witchpoint-to-planet spacelane by giving a small bonus to players who stay on or close to it.
  • Station Options by cag: a comprehensible oxp for tampering with the preferences of other oxp's, but alas, only a beta version (2021)
  • Witchdrive/Torus "fix": (Astrobe, 2014) Fast speed damages front shields - ingredients for a DIY .oxp

Named Collections

Note on downloading from Box: if one cannot download individual oxp's from Box, try deselecting your desired oxp and clicking the "download" button in the top right corner of the page. You may be rewarded with a single bulky download of each and every file in that collection instead!
Alternatively, edit the name of the Box site, replacing http://www.box.net/... with http://app.box.net/...

  • These are listed in an approximate date order of newest oxps in each collection, oldest (2006/7) at the bottom.

Phkb (2014-21)

  • Phkb's experimental OXPs (see here for the links to the OXPs - and their discussions): 2021
CompressedJSON.zip is a utility designed for OXP developers. Many OXP's use JSON to package up data into the save game file, and then extract it again when loading the game. JSON is a rather bulky format, though, and it doesn't take long for your data to start making your save game file quite large. Compressed JSON simply reduces the amount of space the JSON data takes up, thereby reducing your save game file. See the readme file inside the ZIP for details on how to use it.
Hermitage.zip gives you the opportunity to own your own Rock Hermit.
Maintenance TuneUp.oxz provides the ability to do a maintenance tune up, even when the normal overhaul is not available.
Population Control.oxz is intended to limit the size of pirate groups in safer systems. The number of police patrols is also increased slightly.
Risky Business.oxz aims to make Multi-Gov, Feudal and Anarchy systems more rewarding for traders, by tweaking prices on a few goods. Goods that are already over the average could be increased. Goods that are below the average could be reduced. Not all goods will be impacted at all locations.
Space Lane Adherance Bonus.oxz was intended as a way of dealing with the go off-lane to avoid pirates recommendation, which is normally given to new pilots who are struggling with combat in the early part of the game. This OXP encourages players to stay on the witchpoint-to-planet spacelane by giving a small monetary bonus to players who stay on or close to it as much as possible.
PlanetForests.oxp & PlanetOceans.oxp for the Vanilla game: restores the image of the planet to match its description on the F7 page.
  • Phkb's Box account - with some new ones recently added!

Montana05 (2021)

  • Montana05's collection of lost/mislaid oxp's is on Box. In many cases he has fixed/updated them. Most of these are now on the Expansions Manager.

Rustem (2018-9)

  • Rustem's collection is on Box. Different versions of Orbits, with tweaks for some other oxps to align with Orbits. Also Norby's MicroGTorus. 11 oxp's.
  • Not in either his collection or the Expansions Manager is Stealth Raiders (2019) - nastier foes in safer systems

Svengali (2012-18)

Charlie's Pallas as rejigged by Svengali
  • Svengali's Collection on Box. 2016-8, but many from 2012. Seemingly a mix of stuff already posted for more general in-game use, with some more esoteric gubbins for .oxp programmers (for using Library, GNN etc). Over 120 files (some .oxps). His picks seem to be older files which he was maintaining.
Picks - Pallas (ship)
Picks - RoC Remorse Of Conscience v2 (2013) (ship)
Picks - WPB (2013) Old Witchpoint Buoy

Griff (2009-18)

A note about Griff's collections: they are spread around. The box account linked below is the largest collection, but there are also Spara's collection of Griff's collections, in Ships above there is Griff's Organic Thargoids, and in Ambience, Ice Asteroid.

  • Griff's own Collection: Griff is the official ship designer for Oolite: the vanilla game ships, stations etc are all his. It will probably be better to download his oxp's from the Expansion Manager... but if you are running an older version of Oolite, his collection may be helpful. If you are OXPing yourself, it should prove invaluable.
It includes such oddities as a burning alloy movie!
  • Spara's collection - Spara's & Griff's comments with link (to 2021 collection of 2012-14 .oxp's).

GalCop Health Warnings

  • The major rejigs of Oolite under Cim in 2014 (v.1.80) & 2015 (v.1.82) broke many unmaintained older .oxp's.
  • Many early threads were lost due to the Great Deletion before Aug 2008.
