oolite: a space-sim game
Oolite - a space-sim game
This manual page documents briefly the Oolite.
Oolite is a port of the space-sim game Oolite to the GNUStep/OpenGL
What is the purpose of the game?
To fly from planet to planet, buying and selling goods, shooting
pirates or committing acts of piracy. There's no goal other than
perhaps to achieve the rank of ELITE.
How do I quit?
If docked, use the F2 key. When in fly, use the p key.
I'm still confused, how do I play?
Documentation can be found in the /usr/share/doc/oolite directory. You
should start with README.TXT.gz for window settings. Then, the
PLAYING.TXT.gz document gives a basic overview of the controls.
For the nostalgic, Ian Bell's Flight Training Manual for the original
BBC Elite is still a very good introduction to the game and can be
easily found online.
A huge documentation, including advices for newcomers and a wiki, is
available on the Oolite home page <//www.oolite.org/>.
What do the various colors represent on the radar?
o White - unpowered items that can't mass-lock the in-system
o Green/Yellow - navigation buoys.
o Yellow - powered craft.
o Red - powered craft identified as hostile.
o Green - space stations.
o Green/Red - thargoids
o Purple - police
o Blue/Red - police on intercept
o Red/Yellow - active mine (about to detonate)
Oolite was written by Giles Williams and other, and it was ported to
the GNU/Linux operating system by the Oolite Linux project. The
original version can be found at the Oolite home page <//
