Leaving the System

Post by Kormic » Sat Apr 08, 2017 11:41 pm

So I got the hang of navigation, but only within the current list of planets under the stats area on the nav screen. So how do I get to a different system within the same galaxy? Specifically I'm trying to get to Kelsy, from starbase 51. (Using IOS10 and VoiceOver.)

Navigate over to a Jump Gate, and dock/enter there, it should show up in list of planets/asteroid fields/etc.
There is a fifty credit docking fee, you dock to it just like a planet,

Once in, You'll get a list of adjacent star systems. You can then jump system to system
in a linear fashion, travelling the nodes until you reach your destination. Each jump costs
some fuel. Your going from Feris to Ethan to Kelsey - about 10 fuel cost.
Sorry but I don't know those VI apps and can't help you with how they read things to you.

This post written by an ex Staffer may help with visualising the Sphere Galaxy in your mind.


Also once DOCKED at a Jump Gate and shown the list of adjacent systems as Marc SP referenced to above there is also an icon on the bar tagged with the word 'Plotter'. This launches a new window with a Start and End system drop down. This then lists the systems to travel through to get where you want to go.

This may also help with working out where / how to get to a location (system).

A Walk in the Woods helps me relax and release the tension from a hard day at the code.
The fact that I'm dragging a body behind me should be irrelevant!
