  • New Asp, Cobra1, Cobra3, Krait, Mamba, and Python models and textures, made by ADCK.
  • New "Rock Hermit" model and textures, for use in Gal Navy missions and rarely as a base.
  • Eight versions of ADCK's Thargoid.
  • A new retexture of Selezen's Thargoid Carrier.
  • A new thargoid carrier by ADCK.
  • A new Military Station by ADCK.
  • A new class of ship "Destroyer" with a massive cannon on the front. by ADCK.
  • New viper and asp defense ships, "medship", "shuttle", "transport", "transporter" using Simon B's models from neolites.
  • All of the above are retextured with shaders.
  • Over 100 "named" behemoths, all with their own nameplates.
  • Retextured versions of Nemoricus' Military Station Type 1, Minesweeper, Radar. With Shaders.
  • Retextured versions of Simon B's Thargoid and Thargon.

Future Plans

  • 1.1. Galactic Navy compatiblity patch. Now available!

Includes new models/textures for all Galactic Navy ships, plus a new station in addition the the original retextured one, and a new class of ship "Destroyer" with the rail-gun attachment mentioned in oolite BB threads. (The plan is to not have the new models overwrite the originals but work alongside them, perhaps with an overwrite.plist for those looking for replacers) Most of the work on this is already done, but requires behemoths to be completed first... I guess I was kind of working back-to-front here.

  • 1.2 Thargoids Patch. Now available! (2010)

By this point the Galactic Navy will be way overpowered, and I'll have to even the sides a little. Mostly only in the planning phase at the moment, but I do have a retextured version of the Thargoid Carrier and several Neolite Thargoid retextures I'd like to use here. Will probably be something along the lines of Second Wave.oxp and Thargorn Threat.oxp.

  • 1.3. Content/Bugfix Patch?

Adding things I havn't thought of yet, fixing things I've broken, etc. Time will tell. This is where I'd start looking to expand the OXP to include suggestions/requests.

  • 1.4. Final Release.

Possibly-Theorhetically-Mythical-Epic-Future-Stable Release-Version. (PTMEFSRV) There will be cake.


  • Before installation, be sure to delete any previous versions of behemoths.oxp or adcks_behemoths.oxp.
  • Extract the adcks_behemoths.oxp into your Addons directory of Oolite.
  • Just to be sure startup Oolite with the SHIFT-key pressed until you see the spinning Cobra MKIII.
