Overview

This OXP aims to improve the usefulness of the Advanced Navigational Array by adding the players current plotted course to all contract detail pages, enabling them to see if the contract is on a similar path to what they are currently travelling along.

Installation and use

In order to get the benefits of this enhancement, the Advanced Navigation Array must be installed and functional. Once installed, and you have a course plotted on the F6 galactic chart, you will then see your current course plotted in green whenever you examine the details of a contract.

Third Party OXP's

If a third party OXP would like to have their mission screen included in those screens which get the current course plotted, all they need to do is:
1. Make sure their mission screen has a "screenID" property set.
2. Add the following code to their worldScript (usually in the startUpComplete function):

 var dcc = worldScripts.DisplayCurrentCourse;
 if (dcc) dcc._screenIDList.push("my_screen_id");

Installation

Place the 'DisplayCurrentCourse.oxz' into your 'AddOns' folder and when you start the game, hold down 'Shift' until you see the spinning Cobra.
Alternatively, you can download the expansion using the expansion pack manager in the game itself.
