If you buy Combat MFD equipment then your Multi-Function Displays will display some info from your ship:

  • energy,
  • forward and aft shields (including Shield Capacitors),
  • fuel,
  • speed (including Q-Charger and FTL speeds),
  • the name of the lastly damaged equipment and the number of how many others are damaged,

and your target's:

  • name,
  • distance,
  • speed,
  • shield radius,
  • laser weapon type and range (after a shot),
  • status: legal or derelict.

The top right corner show how many energy+armour+shield banks remaining.

Armour can arrive from IronHide OXP and HardShips OXP.

The bottom right corner show "Damaged" when the target's exhaust plumes are blinking (below 40% energy) and show "Weak" when blinking strongly and drop sparks with CustomShields OXP (below 20%).

Use the ";" and ":" keys to select an MFD and enjoy the view. ;)

Speeds are calculated from the travelled distance to be compatible with the velocity-based modifiers like Q-Charger OXP and extreme speeds in FarPlanets OXP.

Compatible with Telescope OXP if lock far targets and ShieldEqualizer+Capacitors OXP: if shields are over 100% then either Shield Boosters are installed or Shield Capacitors are filled also.



Oolite 1.79 or later.


Do not unzip the .oxz file, just move into the AddOns folder of your Oolite installation.
