       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
       linux platform.


       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.

       Im still confused, how do I play?
       Have a look at Ian Bell’s Flight Training Manual for the  original  BBC
       Elite,  some  of Oolite’s control keys are different from the original,
       so be sure to read it alongside the Oolite PLAYING.TXT file.

       What do the various colors represent on the radar?
              · White - unpowered items that  can’t  mass-lock  the  in-system
              · Green/Yellow - navigation buoys.
              · Yellow - powered craft.
              · Red - powered craft identified as hostile.
              · Green - space stations.
              · Green/Red - thargoids
              · Purple - police
              · Blue/Red - police on intercept
              · 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 〈〉.
