I rarely use the advanced searching options on my mac. And it was only till today I noticed some Oolite stuff was added to it. Actually I knew it was, but never knew were to look for those options. Assuming others are as ignorant as I was, here are some tips.

- Start a search window by pressing ⌘f in the finder.
- Now select the small pul-down menu labeled 'kind' and select other...

Doing that, browse trough all the possible options to the 'oolite' part. Check the boxes you like to add in your searches.

The checked boxed now will be part of your default options as shown in the first picture.
- select the kind of search you want. e.g. a ship name or ship role.
- when you add your oxps in the library folder, you must also press the + symbol on the right and add a search category of system files and select to include them, so the library content is also included in searches.
- Do a search on content, not on filename. (but that should be obvious)

And voila:

That will give you all the oxps or saved games were you were looking for. :P

(Examples were made wilt OSX 10.6)

While using specific search attributes can help you narrow down a search, OXPs and saved games will also show up in a generic content search for, say, “trader”. (The bit about setting “System files” to “are included” to find OXPs in ~/Library still applies.)
