Oolite-Linux 1.62

January 30th, 2006 by Crusader

Oolite, developed as an homage to Elite, has a new stable release: version 1.62. 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. Changes:

  • New and improved equipment.
  • Overhauled collision physics.
  • Ships entering hyperspace now leave temporary witchspace wormholes between systems.
  • Improvements to gameplay including new scripting routines and enhancements to ships’ AIs.
  • Better compatibility with the vast range of Oolite Expansion Packs
  • Many more bugfixes and improvements to gameplay.

Existing players can update the game via rsync by running ‘oolite-update’ in a Terminal window. The forum can be found at
