Z-GrOovY Small System Stations

From Elite Wiki
Tetrahedron Depot
Octahedron Outpost

Z-GrOovY paintshed (Ze Griff's Ooniversal vinYl paintshed) presents...

... the Octahedron Outpost and the Tetrahedron Depot now added to selected systems (depending on their economies).


This addon is based on Griff's excellent griff_coriolis_normalmapped_alt_v2.0.oxp (now the Griff Station Bundle oxz).

It will add new Tetrahedron and Octahedron stations to systems according to their production quota (with the same ruleset as Z-GrOovY System stations V1).

In short it means:

  • GDP 7000M₢ and above: Standard Griff Coriolis Station (example system: Lave)
  • GDP 6999 - 4032M₢: Octahedron Outposts (example system: Reorte)
  • GDP below 4032M₢: Tetrahedron Depots (example system Riedquat)

Since I worked with Griff's textures, I aligned them to the new stations as good as I could, and they don't look too shabby in my opinion.


A big thank you to:

  • Giles Williams and contributors for Oolite
  • Griff for his new Coriolis station


From version 1.6, there are no dependencies.


  • Looks at its best with shaders set to full of course, but will look good also with half and no shader support (at least on my GPU. I have an NVIDIA GT 630 M)




Downloadable through the in-game Expansions Manager... or Drag and drop the OXP into your AddOns folder of Oolite in addition to the required oxp's
