First Finance OXP
First Finance lends you the money to buy your ship - and manages the loan
So, you've got yourself a ship, but how exactly did you get it? Maybe you took a loan to buy it before the game started. This OXP will create a loan debt you have to pay off, when you start a new game. Yupp. This OXP will make the game a bit harder, nothing else.
This oxp creates the Lave First Finance Corp, which lent you the money to buy your ship. You have a choice of repayment terms (based on either time or dockings), and this oxp takes it from there. You can repay more, there are issues with late payments, etc., etc.
- The Initial Terms come up once you select New Commander at game start.
- The next repayment is shown on your F5F5 Ship's Manifest screen
- The Loan Management screen can be found when docked through the F4 screen (ship and system interfaces)
- - select Loans Menu (under the Loans category).
- You can also check the small print on the loan contract!

- Honourable mentions:
- My thanks go to:
- phkb. His $padTextRight in "StationDockControl_Interface" from "Station Dock Control" OXP was a big help in improving the menu. I used a few very important lines of code in _formatLineToList.
- Disembodied for proof-reading most texts.
- Norby and Cody for pitching their name ideas, that led to the name of this OXP.
- If it breaks and isn't repaired by me within quite some time, feel free the recreate a repaired version. (Please check beforehand, if somebody else already did this and his/her version isn't working at this point either. Give them credit too, when due!)
