Compass: planet is to the left but in front


The Compass is the vital instrument to help navigate from the witchpoint buoy to the main orbital station.


One may navigate by:


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

or when one is close to the planet, the compass immediately switches over to


  • OoASC-stf.png nearby station directly ahead.
  • OoASC-str.png nearby station directly aft.

  • N - Main Orbital Station navigation buoy


This can be upgraded (for some 650cr) in a TechLevel 7 or greater system to the Advanced Space Compass.
