Oolite is a 3D Space Sim in the spirit of Elite, offered free (as in beer) under a Creative Commons license. It is, as the name suggests, Object Oriented [E]lite, written in Objective-C. Among Oolite's several similarities to its inspirational source, the gaming experience is enhanced by the context set in Elite's original manual, and the accompanying novella, The Dark Wheel.
