Have trouble finding your way back to somewhere using only spatial coordinates?

Then the ETT range of homing beacon's and deployment devices is a must buy.

From all planets tech level 11 and above.

The beacon itself (a mine) is scoopable/redeployable. The missile version is more accurate.


This is an old OXP - it existed back in 2006. Version 1.02 by Lone Wolf: converted to OpenStep and Javascript, HUD icons added, flashers corrected
Version 1.01 by Lone Wolf: adaptated for Oolite v.1.75.x
Version 1.0 by Twisted: initial release

To Do

- compass icons (the HUD icons become too small when used as compass icons)
- better/different models
- beacon from beacon launcher gives a beacon launcher or 25 kg Gold on scooping, beacon missile can be scooped but gives nothing. Change this ?
- NPCs scoop the beacon - look into ways to prevent this ?


This OXP requires Oolite v1.75 or higher.


  • Download version 1.02 from here (2011-04-04)
