Archives » How does the scanner order entities?
I've searched, but I couldn't find the answer to this. Let's assume I am travelling through space and I press "Scanner" in the cockpit. How are the ships appearing on my screen sorted?

By their ID, ascending?

Thanks


I would doubt that they would be sorted by id.

If you're in a ship, your scanner will pick up other ships, and then any satellites or stations after that.

From there, ships appear to be organized from their coordinates, starting in the north-western territories, and working their way south-east from, there. If you'll look at your coordinates, it's not that hard to figure out.

Now, I could be wrong, but there's about a 73.41823% chance that I'm right this time.


Not quite true Foop.

First, entities are sorted by entityType (ships, stations etc), then by location ((x, y) coordinates), then I believe by ID.
