This OXP adds the Hognose missionary ship from the Archimedes version of Elite. There's a Happy Eye preacher, a CGC missionary, a Witchspace Lobster worshiper and a Zenarchy monk.

An offspring of this package is the Hognose OXP which is featuring scavengers and miners in undeveloped systems.


Originally developed by the Galactic Navy and Griff Industries for target practice, the Hognose was little more than laser fodder. However, since the ship is a real bargain, several missionary sects purchased large slots and are now flying them to "spread the word".


  • The Hognose is an adaption from the Acorn Archimedes version of the original Elite.



  • Oolite V 1.80 or higher.
  • Requires a video card capable of supporting Oolite Shaders.
