F5 screen ornamented by BGS


This page is accessible both while docked and in flight. It gives you information about your ship.

  • If your ship is damaged, this page is where the details are shown.

Key-commands

This screen is primarily an information screen, rather than one where you make decisions.

  • The "Left & Right Arrow keys" navigate between the equipment items with which your ship is supplied.
  • Pressing the F5 button takes you on to your Ship's Manifest with details of cargo & missions

Equipment List

The order here is not obvious. Lasers go at the end. Damaged items are moved to the top of the list and coloured to show their status.

  • If you are using LMSS then your currently unselected lasers will be shown on the next F5F5 screen.

Changing the page

  • BGS 2.5.1 provides an overlay displaying the F5 data within a monitor and against a backdrop of a ship's bridge
  • XenonUI provides an on-screen reference list of key commands for this and the other F3-F8 pages
  • Docked HUDs removes your HUD from the bottom of the page, leaving only the fuel bar & missile display. Some of the more recent HUDs do this automatically.


Putting some of this in an MFD

  • Useful MFDs puts a lot of this information in two MFDs in your F1-F4 in-flight viewscreens.

Key-commands

This screen is primarily an information screen, rather than one where you make decisions.

  • The "Left & Right Arrow keys" navigate between the pages in the unlikely event that you have more than the one!
  • Pressing the F5 button again takes you back to your commander "jameson": details page

Changing the page

  • XenonUI provides an on-screen reference list of key commands for this and the other F3-F8 pages
  • Docked HUDs removes your HUD from the bottom of the page, leaving only the fuel bar & missile display. Some of the more recent HUDs do this automatically.

OXP listings

You will find that a number of things which you might expect to appear on the F5 equipment page appear here instead.

  • LMSS alternative lasers. The lasers uppermost and ready for use in each mounting appear at the end of the F5 page listing. The secondary unused lasers appear here instead.
  • IronHide armour. The status of that armour is shown on this page (see the screen shot to the right).
  • Repair Bots: the number of charges is also listed on this page.

You will also find reputations listed here too.

  • Display Reputation publishes one's delivery contract reputation on this page (cargo, parcels & passengers).
  • Towbar publishes one's salvaging reputation here - or if not, a nag to buy a towbar!
  • Market Observer publishes one's trading reputation here
  • Explorers' Club publishes one's explorational reputation here too.
  • BountyStatus OXP adds your bounty status and amount to the "missions" section on this page.
