Overview

This OXP aims to add flexibility and control to the layout of MFD displays. MFD's can be useful, but they also take up screen space and can be distracting in certain conditions. This OXP gives you the ability to define different MFD "sets", which can then be quickly activated when required.

Installation and Operation

After purchasing the MFD Fast Configuration device, and launching your ship, you will be able to prime the device by using the "Shift-N" key sequence. Once it is primed, you can change the mode by pressing the "B" key, and activating the mode by pressing the "N" key.

In short, you set up your MFD's in a particular way, and then store that "set" in one of 6 different positions. These sets can then be recalled to restore the MFD layout as you had it.

The available modes are:

ModeDescription
Set current config as set 1This sets the current MFD layout as "Set 1".
Set current config as set 2This sets the current MFD layout as "Set 2".
Set current config as set 3This sets the current MFD layout as "Set 3".
Set current config as green condition setThis sets the current MFD layout as the set to apply when the alert condition changes to "Green".
Set current config as yellow condition setThis sets the current MFD layout as the set to apply when the alert condition changes to "Yellow".

Hide all setting functions from this listThis will hide all the above modes, leaving only the ones below. Do this once you have defined all your sets.
Activate default setThis will activate whatever set is the default.
Activate set 1This will activate "Set 1".
Activate set 2This will activate "Set 2".
Activate set 3This will activate "Set 3".
Activate green condition setThis will activate the "Condition Green" set.

Once you have defined all your different sets, it is recommended you activate the "Hide all setting functions from this list" option. This will reduce the number of modes to only the activation modes, allowing for a more streamlined operation.
