Advanced Space Compass

Jump to: navigation, search


The Tyley-Feynman GW-99 astro-navigation compass with user-selectable target modes, is an addition to the ship a commander is unlikely to regret. The function it offers beyond that of the basic compass may seem like an unnecessary luxury, but there are many hidden navigational utilities in space, and once experienced how to exploit them with the ASC's contribution to effortless space-orienteering, one comes quickly to rely and depend on it.


As with a basic compass, one may navigate by:


  • OoASC-plr.png nearby planet directly ahead.
  • OoASC-plf.png nearby planet directly aft.

By a key toggle on the astrogation console, the advanced compass can alternatively navigate by:


  • OoASC-sf.png sun directly ahead.
  • OoASC-sr.png sun directly aft.

Navigational Buoys

Navigational buoys and other beacons are indicated by a rhombus, and an identifying letter. Pressing the \ or # key will cause the Advanced Space Compass to cycle though all the Beacons being transmitted by stations, buoys or ships in the current system. From 1.77, you can also use the Shift + \ to step backwards
