GalCop Galactic Registry
This OXP aims to provide pilots with data relating to their current sector, and provide tools pilots can use to better understand the galaxy they work in. This expansion adds a new interface screen, the "GalCop galactic registry", which had the following sub-options:
- Regions: Each sector has a number of galactic regions, and this menu allows pilots to see all named regions and display their location.
- Spacelanes: There are a number of spacelanes in each section, largely related to trade routes. This menu will list each of the different spacelanes defined in the current galactic sector, and allow you to display each route on the galactic chart.
- TechLevel: This menu allows pilots to highlight all systems of a particular techlevel, and (if the Advanced Navigational Array is installed) to automatically plot a course to the closest one.
- Government Types: This menu allows pilots to highlight all systems of government type, and (if the Advanced Navigational Array is installed) to automatically plot a course to the closest one.
- Economy: This menu allows pilots to highlight all systems of a particular economy, and (if the Advanced Navigational Array is installed) to automatically plot a course to the closest one.
- Galactic Navy Sector Commands: If you have the Galactic Navy OXP installed, this option will become available. This will highlight each system that is home to a GalNavy sector command, and (if the Advanced Navigational Array is installed) allow you to automatically plot a course to the closest one.
- GalCop Sector HQ: This menu allows pilots to highlight the GalCop Sector HQ system in the sector.
- Full system list: This function will list all systems in the sector. The list can be sorted by name, tech level, government type or economy type. Additionally, two systems can be selected from the list, and then the details of these two systems can be displayed along with a galactic map showing the route between them.
- Search registry: This function will take any text input and search all planetary descriptions for that criteria.
Map v Systems View
For each section, it is possible to switch between the galactic map view, and a list of systems. The menu item chosen will change its description to have "(show map)" or "(show systems)" to indicate which view can be shown.
Place the 'GalCopGalacticRegistry.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.
