After reading what it was in the wiki, I thought it would be interesting to expand this OXP into a "Galcop is falling apart" OXP. one could raise fuel prices, increase pirate amounts/strength, maybe even make a few missions. If possible, one could alter some planet governments. It could be pretty interesting.

That could fit equally well into the Time Travel OXP I once suggested - you could go back in time to before GalCop was formed.

Well in fact I'm at the stage of looking for ideas here, the fighting code is fairly stable and quite generic and could be applied to various combat situations outside the player/police/pirate scenario. I've mentioned previously that it can be used for ship balancing, it's a great source of test data ;)

The easiest way to customize it is to just substitute your own ship selection in shipdata.plist, any ship from any OXP you have installed is up for grabs.

Caduceus vs Star Jelly anyone?

Actually I sort of had Smivs' Tough Guys scenario partially in mind as I developed this, it definitely falls into the "loss of control" (Smivs has nicked all the good words ;)) class of OXPs.

For information the wiki still points to the deleted v. 1.6.
