Welcome aboard, Commander!

Thanks Cody.. I can feel myself being dragged into the ooniverse...

on my wishlist would be to be able to move from machine to machine and keep progress, particularly between oolite and alite on android... but I guess thats a bit of a pipedream!!

Spara's Start Advice has been added to the Addons for Beginners pack. I still think that an in-game message is the best way to give advices to new players who are not read the forum nor the wiki yet. The included mini mission is just a nice a bonus. :)

I, for one, thank you, Norby, for your great work in putting together and maintaining this valuable metapackage. I almost consider it canon.

This is coming from someone who has played on vanilla, as well as downloaded gigabytes worth of OXPs, way back when the in-game expansion pack manager didn't exist yet, and had to sift through scores of OXPs, unzipping, copy-pasting, determining dependencies and conflicts between them, etc. etc.

What drudgery!

This metapackage is a godsend for someone like me, who just wants to sit back, relax, and update a very dated, almost 90s-era game (in gameplay and graphics terms) to 21st-century levels of playability in just one press of an Enter key.

Believe it or not, there are many filthy casuals like me who cannot, or are not willing to, spare the time to go through all the trouble of forum-reading, wiki-browsing, documentation-reading and all that which building your own OXP/OXZ list entails, just to get a game of Oolite running with a decent enough amount of content to be fun and entertaining for hours on end.

In the future, when I encourage friends to install Oolite, I will probably tell them to install Addons for Beginners right after.

That said, godspeed on your travels, Commander Norby. I am looking forward to trying out your "Competent" metapackage, once you've finalized it (though for now, I'll probably install the "competent" packages you mention in your wiki page one by one*). :lol:

*Except Headlights because it looks weird hahaha (Probably won't install Aliens also (weird-looking ships :lol: ))

Welcome Alliant and thank you for your comment!

Just a side note that collection is a better name for this kind of packages, as we talked above.

Yes, probably shorter for many players if install this one then remove some what do not like.

The competent collection is even more player specific, this is why it exists only as a personal recommendation list in the wiki and everyone should check through and install the parts one by one.

As always, feel free to ask any questions in the forum. :)
