Star System Lane Indicator MFD
This expansion pack adds the "Star System Lane Indicator" equipment item, a multi-function display (MFD) which indicates if the spaceship position is inside a well known lane in the current star system and/or a beacon to the nearest point of a specified lane axis.
Star System Lane Indicator MFD Techlevel: 8 Price: 700₢ Requires: Advanced Space Compass
The MFD is activated once primed: (ie. N is pressed until the Star System Lane Indicator is selected). Pressing n then activates the Indicator. The MFD GUI is then displayed.
b cycles through the equipment modes:
-"Only MFD GUI". -"Lane-1 WP" which sets the compass to the nearest axis point of lane WhichPointBeacon-MainPlanet. -"Lane-2 SW" which sets the compass to the nearest axis point of lane Star-WhichPointBeacon. -"Lane-3 SP" which sets the compass to the nearest axis point of lane Star-MainPlanet. -"Lane-A (N)" which sets the compass to the nearest axis point of lane parallel to Lane-1 and at the angle of MainStation.
Lanes 1,2,3 have a radius of 50Km. It is possible to be positioned in 2 (or even 3) lanes at the same time. The HUD GUI also indicates if the spaceship is at an extension of a lane (not only the "in-between" part).
Lane-A has a radius of 25Km and there is only an "in-between" indicator.
Place the 'StarSystemLaneIndicator.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.
This expansion pack relies on having multi-function displays available in your HUD. You must at least be using Oolite version 1.79, and your HUD must have at least 1 MFD defined.
