Commander Zi Tweaks
I have returned (after a year-long hiatus) to Oolite in Dec 2013 with loads of ideas. This time, however, I have some experience with programming gained in 2013.
Here are some of my small contributions. All of them can be gotten from my Dropbox.
For Zi's recommendations see here.
Download OrangED HUD , for Oolite 1.80 or later (downloaded 2142 times).
Download Laser Colors , for Oolite 1.80 or later (downloaded 3179 times).
A small OXP which adds some functionality to the best thing the 1.79 adds, i.e. MFDs, aka. fancy green infoboxes.
Now contains the Real Life Time functionality and a kills per day counter.
See Useful MFDs for the current version.

A WIP oxp which aims to add engine trails to the NPCs in visual range, preferably excluding peacefuls.
EDIT: Now known to be buggy, so please get Trails by Norby instead.

Frontier Style Equipment
An OXP which adds a great feature from FFE that I felt was missing in *lite. Basically, most combat equipment takes up cargo space. Scanners, HUD elements and the like do NOT take up space as opposed to Frontier. Ship max cargo values have been adjusted upwards accordingly, taking into account the fact that some equipment from Frontier doesn't exist at all in Oolite.
Prices/used up space/descriptions and the like are subject to change based on player feedback.
EDIT: This facility is now provided by Ship Configuration OXP (newest version at time of edit: June 2020)

A small mini-oxp which changes the laser colors for all classic player ships to orange. NPC laser is still red.
The idea was to make it easier to spot your own laser in bigger space battles.

This is a mini-OXP which enables you to see the NPCs' Elite ranks, provided you have a costly device.
Just an immersion increaser.

Real Life Time (now Useful MFDs)
An OXP which takes an old code courtesy of another_commander and makes real life time (that is dd-month-yyyy) display on the F5-F5 screen. May need some further tweaking to better account for adjustments and to refresh more often.
Standard start date is 21st March 3142 to match Selezen's timeline, although this can be easily adjusted.
The functionality is now included in Useful MFDs.
|0.1||2013-15-12||CC BY-NC-SA 3.0||Misc OXPs||Zireael||Oolite BB|
This is a small OXP which changes Oolite's font. The default font included is OCR-A Extended, also known as the font used in Deepspace Ships.

Chupacabra & Numeric HUD
This is a quick merge (thanks to CSOB for allowing merging and spara for helping out) of CSOB's two excellent HUDs. 100% more enjoyment guaranteed!
