Rather more excitement in interstellar space!


This OXP makes much more of interstellar space/witch space, providing a wide range of encounters/adventures.

It provides a chance that your escape pod will be rescued in interstellar space/witch space.

Note that it also provides an update for the unlicensed OXP Fuel Collector as well as vigorously expanding the Missionaries OXP, but does not require either in order to run.


  • This expansion pack requires Oolite version *1.82* or above.
  • Various expansion packs are recommended (but not necessary) to complement this one. See the 'General notes' section below.

General Notes

This expansion pack makes misjumps a little more likely and, fairly often, modifies what happens when one misjumps. One can encounter only the navy, or only thargoids, or empty witchspace or ... various other things. The expansion pack also gives you a chance of having your escape pod rescued in interstellar space by any nearby behemoths or leviathans (presuming you have such ships installed). That chance increases if you have bought the 'electronic thumb' equipment.

Quick Facts

  • The load that Interstellar Tweaks will place on your computer will be, for the most part, light to moderate (and, mostly, via CPU much more than RAM and graphics card). But if you have many of the expansion packs recommended below installed, then that will increase the load.
  • The difficulty of this expansion pack varies automatically, in various ways, with the player's Elite Rating.
