Useful MFDs

From Elite Wiki

This .oxp generates two free MFDs (Multi-Function Displays).

General Info MFD

Useful MFDs are in the top corners over a Coluber HUD (screenshot is from Strangers World)


  • Information on the ship
    • Ship name
    • Ship's service level, current trade-in value, and next servicing cost
    • Fuel remaining in LY
    • Solar Wind Flux (vital for Stranger's World HardWay.oxp users)


  • Information on the player
    • Credit balance
    • Legal status
    • Elite rank
    • Parcel-carrying reputation
    • Date: The default start date is 21st March 3142 with the year being taken from Selezen's timeline, but you can adjust it as you see fit.


Note that Selezen's timeline tries to harmonize Elite, Oolite and the Frontier family of games.

The host of this website Dylan Smith and ClymAngus also tried harmonizing them. Others look at the glaring inconsistencies between Elite/Oolite versus Frontier/FFE/ED and decide that it's not worth the bother!

Market MFD
