This .oxp reduces the masslock radius of a ship according to its mass.
Ship name Mass Masslock radius (r=mass*0.02+17000) Adder 16 t 17 km Gecko 25 t 17.5 km Sidewinder 25 t 17.5 km Viper 34 t 17.7 km Mamba 36 t 17.7 km Moray 51 t 18 km Cobra Mk I 52 t 18 km Fer-de-Lance 53 t 18 km Asp 76 t 18.5 km Krait 93 t 19 km Boa 182 t 20.5 km Cobra Mk III 215 t 21 km Boa2 216 t 21 km Python 267 t 22 km Anaconda 438 t 26 km
You can't use Torus drive in combat situations due to red alert, regardless of these distances!
The Torus drive will turn off when a new ship arrives into scanner range but you can re-engage the Torus drive until your alert level is green.
Ships over masslock range are marked with a darker yellow 'lollipop' in green alert.
Torus will turn off when there are asteroids, buoys, cargo boxes or mines on a collision course (to slow down in time and help prevent an impact).
Do not unzip the .oxz file, just move into the AddOns folder of your Oolite installation.
