Mineral Store Reset

From Elite Wiki


This OXP randomly resets the mineral store for the system's main station to avoid market saturation (ie being unable to sell when there are more than 127 units of minerals for sale on the market). A must-have for miners whose space craft lack hyperdrive/witchspace jump drives!

The Mineral store randomly resets as function of system economy, resetting after the trigger flag reaches 1. The trigger increment is now a function of the solar system's GNP.


This oxp was crafted by Stranger, with thanks to Commander Vasig for the idea for this OXP!


Download the oxz. from the Expansions Manager. Or, to install the oxp. package, unzip the downloaded archive, and then move the folder "Mineral Store Reset.oxp" to the AddOns directory of your Oolite installation. Then start the game up (holding down the shift key).
