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

and your target's:

  • name,
  • distance and speed,
  • shield radius, then Front/Aft orientation display and Damaged!/Weak!/Derelict flag,
  • laser weapon type and range (after a shot),
  • status: Clean/Offender/Fugitive, if derelict then Trap or Treasure/Empty/Mined/Usable (see Towbar OXP).

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

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.

The "Damaged!" flag shown 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%).


SEE indicator

The top right corner show letters about how many shields, armour and energy remaining. Each letter represents 2 energy banks in strength and ordered by from outside to inside. Small letters mean one side is up only.

"SEE" mean you have basic Shields (2 banks=128 points) and 2*2 Energy banks filled (4 banks=256 points), as a Cobra Mark III at start.

The total length is relative with your ship's defensive strength. The strongest Andromeda has CCCCCCCCMBSAAAAAAAAHHHEEEEEEEE. :)

A letter will be changed to "-" if drops below the half of the banks represented by this letter so "-E" mean less than 3 banks filled and more than one.

Underscore "_" mean equipment damage which prevent regeneration, you should fix it in a dock. Checked damages:

The number in the corner show the total value in banks (64 points).

If you see "LAST BANK!" here instead of letters then ... well, you know. (Flee! ;))

One-shot indicator

The space rightwards from shield percentages show letters to indicate one-shot equipments, in order:


Oolite 1.79 or later.


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