Activates Time Acceleration with Injectors and Torus drives: but is cancelled in Red alert, Docking and near a Wormhole.


  • Needs the OXP Developer release version of Oolite (beneath the Current Version - and not the Nightly release) which is identical in gameplay but contains time acceleration (TAF) and other debug functions.
  • Wormholes: The automatic turning off feature near wormholes is a help if waiting for fuel-free jump: you can set 16x TAF by hand after you undock and time acceleration will fall back to 1x when a wormhole is created by another ship: you can then turn towards the blue lollipop on your scanner.
  • Torus to Sun: no Torus speedup if TorusToSun is installed to avoid addition.


  • Default settings (adjustable in the timecontrol.js file):
2x TAF with Injectors, except in red alert
4x TAF with Torus, except if there is something on your scanner, like asteroids.
  • Setting TAF in-game:
Press shift+F during flight to see "TAF: x1.00" under the FPS display.
Press "p" for pause, then horizontal arrow keys to change TAF - and "p" again to continue the game.
  • Green Alert: There is another setting in timecontrol.js where you can assign a TAF to the Green alert, but this is 1x (off) by default.
  • Low FPS: If your FPS fall below 20 due to the increasing CPU load then the multiplier will be set to a smaller level which can produce at least 20 FPS.


Do not unzip the .oxz file, just move into the AddOns folder of your Oolite installation.
