       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?
       Documentation can be found in the /usr/share/doc/oolite directory.  The
       PLAYING.TXT  document  gives a basic overview of the controls but for a
       full explanation please see the Oolite Reference Sheet ( OoliteRS.pdf )
       which is suitable for printing out.
       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.

       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
