Tetiri Planet Ring
This OXP is the fruit of a BB discussion from 2011. PA Groove, Thargoid et al. eventually managed to come up with what you see in the screen shots.

Ring Demo OXP by Thargoid.
A little demo OXP which adds a ring of rectangular blocks (1000m wide) around the equatorial circumference of the system main planet at a height of 2500m. It is a proof of concept of how perhaps to make a race-track or orbital ring around special worlds.
The code herein is made freely available for anyone else to use as the basis for a full OXP based on the idea, which was originally from P.A. Groove anyway.
Updated 18th January 2014 to replace flashers with visual effects to join the ring segments together, and to add segment ship script to keep them in position.

Adding at least one market (if not eight!) greatly increases supply and demand...
