Montanas Resource Pack 01

From Elite Wiki
Work in progress - corrections and additional information's will be added


Instead of adding to every OXP the same resources I created an external package that could be referenced to. While saving disc space it also makes future maintenance easier. While mainly designed to support other OXP's a stand-alone download is adding Griff's alloy and the new commodity "Quirium Crystal".


Explosive shrapnels and burning quirium fuel are making ship explosions more realistic but in close range also more dangerous. They could be spawned with the roles MRP01_effects_explosive_shrapnel and MRP01_effects_burningFuel. The burning quirium fuel once in a while leaves radioactives or a quirium crystal behind after the explosion.


Adds Griff's awesome alloy variants.

Similar to alloy radioactives (role: radioactives), platinum (role: platinum) and gold (role: gold) are now added as an entity rather than only in a container. Gold and platinum include the role splinter(0.10) so both could be the result of mining as well.

Minerals, now an entity as well, have the roles minerals or splinter. While the display names are "Minerals" and "Ore" they are basically just variations of splinters.

Introduces the new commodity "Quirium Crystal", a rare crystal with 5-dimensional emission. While traded similar to gem stones in g they do also appear in the corona of some suns and at ship explosions as an entity (role: quirium_crystal).

Adds for all commodities of the core-game a cargopod (roles: cargopod_ & commodity name, cargopod_platinum, for example). Goods in kg got 10 - 20 units per container, goods in g got 20 - 40 units. Additional to the core-game commodities only witchfire whiskey (Darkside Moonshine Distillery), holy artifacts (Dictators) and quirium crystal (this pack) are covered, all other OXP goods are not included.

While some containers could contain various commodities the different designs help to decide what is worth scooping.

There is no need to include the OXP to access this definitions, a simple copy in your own code will work and by doing so you can help to prevent the shiplibrary from slowing down and keep a certain standard.
