This expansion pack adds the "Navigation MFD" equipment item, a multi-function display (MFD) which displays current navigational information.

 Navigation MFD
 Techlevel: 7
 Price: 650cr

Included on the display:

  • Current system, TL, economy icon and government icon.

When hyperspace target system is set:

  • Hyperspace target system, TL, economy icon and government icon.
  • Distance to target system (in LY), travel time to target system
  • Distance from WP to planet in target system, distance from planet to sun in target system
  • Hyperdrive status (indicating when it is safe to enter hyperspace).

When hyperspace target system is not set:

  • Distance from WP to planet in current system, distance from planet to sun in current system.

If the Advanced Space Compass is installed

  • Current ASC target
  • If the ASC target is a station, whether the station requires docking clearance.
  • Distance to ASC target
  • Travel time to ASC target

Distances are shown in "OU" (Oolite Units). An "OU" translates to the approximate distance between the planet Lave and the sun in an unmodified game. If the Library OXP is installed, the units can be changed to "km" or "m". On the F4 Interfaces screen, go to "Config for AddOns", find the "Navigation MFD" settings, and change the distance units from OU (enter 0), km (enter 1) or m (enter 2).


Place the 'Navigation_MFD.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.
