Enhances Galactic Hyperjumps


This OXP contains two equipment items:

1. A free upgrade for the Galactic Hyperdrive, adding a destination programmer with 33 specific destinations, at least four in each galactic sector. Featured destinations include all the less commonly visited "Lost Worlds", allowing the operator to complete the Explorers' Club challenge.

Galactic Hyperdrive OXP
Name Naval Hyperdrive Programmer
Cost 5,000₢
TL Availability 13

2. A Naval Hyperdrive Programmer provides a further selection of 112 destinations, each and every one of the Galactic Navy Sector Command (SecCom) stations, and is purchasable for 5,000₢ at planets and stations of technical level 13.

After purchasing a Galactic Hyperdrive, use the prime-able equipment (N-key) menu while in flight to activate its programmer. Then press the n key repeatedly to cycle through a menu of reachable systems in the next galactic sector. Once you have selected your preferred destination, press g to initiate a galactic hyperspace jump.

When a galactic jump is made the Naval Hyperdrive Programmer, if fitted, is automatically put into safe stowage. This has two beneficial effects: the programmer cannot be damaged in combat while stowed, and the prime-able equipment menu is not cluttered with an impractical item. When a new Galactic Hyperdrive is purchased, the programmer is automatically brought out of stowage.

Wildefire Help

This is an add-on OXP which adds a help menu in the F4 docked ship-station interface screen (Look for Wildefire HELP/Wildefire Avionics) which takes you to a chart of the next galaxy showing your options.

This replaces the original F5F5F5 option for doing so (which was borked by changes in the charts display in Oolite v.1.82)


2012 versions (for Oolite v.1.77.1 or earlier - and with F5F5F5 chart of next galaxy selectable in-flight):
