GadgetsIn your wanderings as a starship pilot, you may come across gadgets that you do not fully understand the workings of. This is an attempt at documenting some of those gadgets.
Destination Finder - USE this device to find semi-detailed information about a destination in space, such as a planet or space station.
Alliance Information Unit - USE this unit to learn more about alliances. The information displayed includes percentage of space controlled, interalliance relations, home planet, and owned sectors.
Point Lookup Unit - USE this device to see how many license points you currently have.
Flight Control Scanner - WEAR this and TURN it on to hear flight control reports. Flight control operators will announce things such as starships launching and landing, starships under attack, starships traveling through jumpgates and navigating out of sectors, incoming asteroids, and emergency alerts such as Praelor invasions. You can FILTER SCANNER to apply filters to ignore specific alerts. Scanner profiles can also be saved to quickly access different sets of filters. To save your current filter configuration, use the SAVE <scanner> command. To load a set of filters, use LOAD <scanner>. To delete a saved set, DELETE <scanner>.
