       Oolite - a space-sim game




       This manual page briefly documents Oolite.

       Oolite is a reinterpretation of the 8-bit classic space shooter/trading
       game Elite, which was written by Ian Bell and David Braben.


       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?
       While docked, use the 'F2' key. When in flight, 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 a  full  description  of  all  controls,  please  see  the  "Oolite
       Reference Sheet" (OoliteRS.pdf) which is suitable for printing out.

       Where can I find more information?
       For  the  nostalgic,  Ian Bell's "Space Traders Flight Training Manual"
       for the original BBC Elite is still a very  good  introduction  to  the
       game and can be found online ⟨
       A  large  amount  of  additional  information,  including  advice   for
       newcomers, Oolite Expansion Packs (OXP), the Elite/Oolite wiki, and the
       Oolite Bulletin Board is linked from the Oolite home page ⟨http://⟩.

       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 others, 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 ⟨http://⟩.

       This     manual     page     was     written     by    Eddy    Petrisor
       <>,  for  the  Debian  project  and  updated  by
       various maintainers, (but may be used by others).
