A tale of love and betrayal amongst the vicious furry feline races of galaxy four. Can you pilot your way through the intrigue of the ancient mating rituals of the Teance system, and save star-crossed lovers from a fate worse than death? A fast ship, fuel scoops, and a hard heart are recommended.

Difficulty Rating


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 Military Laser, Fuel Injectors, an energy unit and perhaps a shield booster.

Installing and Playing

You need do nothing with the OXZ once you have downloaded it through the Expansions Manager.

To play the older OXP versions instead, unzip the download file. This will create a folder named "Love Cats xxx". Open this folder and you will see a folder named "Love Cats xxx.oxp" and a readme. Move the Love Cats xxx.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.
