This was a question in Open Source Games on Reddit

I must say my answer was more than vague because I didn't play much games in that specific genre because I prefer more "technical" games.

If this person were to wander it and ask how can I convert Oolite into an 3D shoot'em'up, what would your answer?

Oolite is "too realistic" … hmm. How about the Oolite training simulator?

Maybe jump to Riedquat and wait two minutes? :-)

JThe main thing is that unless there is a purpose to a game, it can end up being boring really quickly. Just shooting stuff non-stop and without objective can get old fast, but maybe something like Combat Arena OXP could offer what that person needs, at least for a short time and combined with other eye-candy installed as well.

A long time ago there was this To Catch a Thargoid mission pack by Thargoid. I remember it was pretty awesome back in the day. Not sure how it holds up graphically nowadays, but it was a really interesting military mission set of the type that we don't see very often in Oolite.

But when all is said and done, maybe something like Freespace2 SCP would cover such a request in a more complete manner. The guy is right that Oolite is not arcadey.
