A little OXP, which adds a new piece of primable equipment for any scavenger, miner or bounty hunter. As small scoopable items like cargo pods, splinters and escape pods can often be difficult to see, this addition to the ships HUD overlays them with a virtual flashing glow. Thus they are easier to spot from a distance and home in on.

After purchase, the item is selected using "shift-N" and then activated with "n". From then-on all such scoopable items should be highlighted. To turn it off again, simply press "n" once more. Note that the equipment automatically deactivates itself on docking.


  • Tech Level - 12.
  • Cost - 300 credits.


This OXP requires at least version 1.77 of Oolite.
