Tracker OXP

From Elite Wiki
(Redirected from Tracker)


The Ships Systems Department of the Aquarian Shipbuilding Corporation would like to present to you their latest product, the Tracker. An invaluable add-on to the advanced space compass (ASC - which must also be fitted to the ship), it allows the simultaneous tracking of up to five distinct targets anywhere within the current system (or area of interstellar space).

Once purchased, it is selected by using the "shift-n" key, and then activated with the "n" key (under standard keyboard configuration). This will transfer the current target lock (be it an ident-lock or a missile-lock) to the system. It can then be viewed on the ASC by cycling through to the "T" indicator. Note that a target lock is required before the system can track the entity, so cloaked ships and certain other entities cannot be tracked.

The system has capacity to store five lock-ons. To remove an existing lock-on, just repeat the above procedure. If the target docks, lands on a planet/moon, enters witchspace or is destroyed then the lock is also lost.



This OXP requires at least test version 1.81 of Oolite.
