Difficulty Rating

"Easy". The ships appearing in the OXP are within the power-range of the standard set of ships. You wouldn't need a full Iron Ass to take them on, but you should have some basic upgrades fitted such as a Beam Laser, fuel injectors, an energy unit and perhaps a shield booster.

Installing and Playing

To play the OXZ version, simply copy the file into your AddOns folder. Or download directly from within the game using the download manager.

To play the OXP, unzip the download file. This will create a folder named "LongWay Vx.x". Open this folder and you will see a folder named "LongWay.oxp" and a readme. Move the LongWay.oxp folder to AddOns. As with all OXPs, its the folder ending .oxp that you need to put in Oolite's AddOns folder, otherwise Oolite will not read it.

The Sequel

The Long Way Round has a sequel, the Scourge of the Black Baron.
