My System Specs

Default Oolite (FREE Elite remake)

PSA for all of you who, like me, spent way to many hours playing Elite back in the old C-64/Spectrum days:

I did a search here and was surprised to see that it had never been mentioned before.

Oolite is a FREE remake that expands on the original, and thanks to it's ability to be modded, it even looks good!
See here: Oolite Gallery (go to expansion packs for examples)

Apparently there are also other graphics overhauls that improve the look of space, planets, and even completely new ships, but I haven't downloaded any of those yet.

Anyway, if you enjoyed Elite then I highly recommend checking it out - I'm having a blast (though I'm struggling to remember all the original key binds)

Now excuse me while I go upgrade my trusty Cobra Mk III and go kill some Thargoids.

*EDIT PS*
Oh yeah, it's available on PC, Mac & Linux

Get it here: Download Oolite
