From Elite Wiki

Charlie was active in the Oolite community for a short while between 2006-8.

Creative, and pushing the game code to its limits, he designed a large number of ships.

He tried to create a Black Hole, he did create an oxp introducing new planets in each system (Plannets.oxp), the asteroids used in Asteroid Storm and created a bizarre new ship, the Orb, which never quite worked!

Planets/Plannets OXP

Charlie's Planets.oxp added planets randomly to every system (from a pool of about 20 odd different ones). But was really a test OXP. He probably planned to script them individually but then got side-tracked with his Orb. As it was an early alpha, he did not put it up on Oosat.

This was contrasted with the other early moon/planet-adding OXPs (Lave, Diso, The Assassins Guild) which only added them at specified systems.
