Oolite 1.65

April 23rd, 2008 by Crusader

Oolite, developed as an homage to Elite, has a new stable release: version 1.65. Elite was an open-ended space trading/combat game; Oolite follows in Elite’s footsteps, but with OpenGL graphics, expansion packs (new ships and missions can be created with a text editor and free 3D design packages) and new equipment which wasn’t available in the original Elite (thanks Linux Game Tome). Changes:

  • High resolution collision detection.
  • More new equipment for players to add to their ships.
  • External views of the player’s ship.
  • Scooped escape pods now pay rewards and ransoms for their rescue.
  • Many enhancements to the graphics, explosions and data screens.
  • Improvements to the intelligence of AI opponents and expanded scripting.
  • Many bugfixes and improvements to gameplay.
