I'm quite new, but have managed to pilot a ship from A to B. It's now been taken over by another faction member, and I am on it. That's fine.
What I'd like to know - and I can't find it in any of the literature - is whether there is a way that I can find out where I am. I don't mean that I am in a ship, I mean where in the Universe I am. Nothing seems to show on the Galaxy map.
I'm used to RPG games, and there's always a button that shows with an icon or something where in the "world" you are.
Thank you Jevon for that reply. I'm assuming then that when I'm actually piloting a ship or something, there's a way to know where you are and how far along your route you have got. Some sort of graphic display on a map, perhaps?
I am not at home right now or I would give you a screenshot.
In sublight or ground travel it will show you on a map your general location. But in hyperspace, your only method of knowing "where" you are is based on the timer below your general information panel. Mine says:
Thanks, you're a star. Yes, it was hyperspace that I was meaning. That's a shame really - it would be good to have your position marked on the galaxy map by means of a blinking cursor or something. Shouldn't be too difficult. I might suggest it when I've got into the game a bit!
