Summary[edit]

Add option to colour stars on map that are within current jump drive range.


Solution[edit]

Colour stars by whether they're in range of our jump drives.

Potential add-ons: Include a scan probe-style "soap bubble" effect around in-range stars to indicate your range visually. Have tooltip for each star within range identify how many isotopes you need, distance, number of jumps required to reach a system.


Pros[edit]

  • Reduced reliance on out-of-game tools
  • Better visualization and planning of capital jumps
  • Data for calculations is already available

Cons[edit]

  • Possible clutter of already-crowded "Colour stars by" list
