Target Autolock OXP
A little OXP that offers a software upgrade to the standard scanner targeting enhancement (which is of course required). This adds the functionality that if the ship is attacked by surprise, or any other situation where there is currently no target set, then the attacking ship is automatically targeted.
The modification is designed for bounty hunters and other hard-edged combat veterans to enable swift location of the hostile craft using the Scanner Targeting Enhancement's directional arrow and/or more simple usage of missiles and other ordnance. Note that this update offers target lock not laser lock; that kind of aiming still needs to be done manually.
Available from all good tech 13+ systems for the small price of 200 credits.
It has recently been announced that this piece of equipment has been upgraded and improved, with the ship's current target (no matter how acquired) being highlighted on the scanner in grey/blue.
This OXP requires at least test version 1.74 of Oolite.
