=============================================
Script: Advanced Navigation
Created: 10/08/2010
Version: 1.20
Author: Cycrow
Game: X3: Terran Conflict 2.5+
=============================================

    The AI Division of Cycrow Technologies have been hard at work creating a new autopilot for better navigation of your ships
    The Advanced Navigation Software is a new autopilot extension you can install to any ships, and allows you to better program the navigation of your script.

    The software is capable of many things, these include:

    • Advanced Navigation Menu, for giving all your navigation orders from a single menu that can adapt to your circumstances
    • Advanced Path Planning, the autopilot will have the ability to plot a path around hostile sectors, and any black listed sectors
    • Blacklist/Whitelisting sectors, you can configure the autpilot to have a number of blacklisted sectors that will always be avoided.
    • Seperate Ship Profiles, you can setup seperate profiles per ship for thier navigation settings, as well as global settings, and group profiles, can can be used on multiple ships
    • Avoids Unknown Sectors, the autopilot will avoid all sectors you have yet to discover
    • Docking Computer Intergration, When docking at a station, all ships will use the docking computer if its installed

  • Gate Safety: Allows safe travel between sectors (no collosions)

Arrow Installation


Arrow Script Replacement Addon



    AP Script Replacement Addon by TechSY730

    These set of scripts are installed seperatly, and replace the built in scripts to allow the advanced navigation to take control of the movement commands.

    This means any normal movement commands will use Advanced Navigation instead, so all commands will use the docking computer for example.

    This also allows other scripts to create plugins to use with advanced navigation as well



Arrow Advanced Navigation Menu

    The main control of the software is done via the navigation menu, from your ships command console, you will have the advanced navigation menu as an option in the navigation sub menu.
    This menu will give u complete control over the ships navigation, weather its flying to a sector, flying to a position or coordinates, docking at a station/carrier, etc

    From this menu you can also set the profile to use for current ship, see below
    You can also manage the currently selected profile, to add/remove the sector lists, or change the settings




Arrow Profiles Editor

    Profiles hold all the settings for the navigation command, this includes weather to avoid enemy sectors or not, what blacklisted and whitelisted sectors there are.
    There are 3 types of profiles

    • Global Profile, default for all ships, a single profile that can apply settings to all ships
    • Ship Profile, individual profile for the given ship, the ship will have a unique profile, so any changes will only apply to that ship
    • Group Profiles, you can create any number of group profiles, this can be applied to any number of ships, and configured the same as the other profiles, so if you have a group of ships that you want the same settings, u can create a group profile for them


    The profiles contain 2 sector lists, blacklist and whitelist.
    The blacklist is a list of sectors that will always be avoided, the ship will never through any sectors on this list
    The whitelist is a list of sectors that a ship will always travel through if needed, ie, if you avoid enemy sectors, u can add an enemy sector to this list, and it will no longer be avoided. Useful if u want to avoid all but some of the enemy sectors

    As well as the sector lists, there are other settings you can change.

    • Avoid Enemy Sectors: When enabled, ship will avoid any sector that is flagged as enemy, except those that are in the whitelist





Arrow Profile Manager

    To use the profile manager, you need the Community Plugin Configuration installed, then you access it via that menu



    This allows you to add/remove and edit profiles, including individual ship profiles.



Arrow Gate Safety

    To enable this option, open the Advanced Navigation Menu and set the gate safety option to enabled.

    When enabled, all ships going through gates will be accelerated to full speed, and prevent collosions for a limited time.
    The ships lasers will also not function for this limited time.

    For the player ships, this is prevents the ship jumping back when accelerating, so you can accelerate at full speed without having to worry about going back through the gate.

If you need them, feel free to use the route planning, etc stuff from the plugin.ap.* libraries in Universe Explorers. The smart.flyer along with the astar routine (Adapted from AalaarDB x3r originals) already handles shortest flying distance safe pathing, sector blacklisting (via navigational hazard beacons), no flying into unexplored sectors, and avoiding enemy sectors via the friend/foe list.

I just don't let the player use them...honestly never thought about it. Shocked

Hi Cycrow,
I have uninstalled this script as it, or one of the required additions were causing my game to crash.
Admittidly it could of been conflicting with one of my scripts installed already.

Now that it has been un-installed it has left a blank ware on some stations.. is there any way i can get rid of them?

thanks for reading Smile

i assume u used the ware manager ?

but did u remove that before this script or at the same time, as the ware manager is used to remove these wares when u get rid of the scripts.

so if u have removed the ware manager as well, it wouldn't have been able to

but what sorta crash was happening ?
i've not had any crash at all

perhaps if u can explain where its crashing i could find out whats causing it

Thanks for replying.

I uninstalled all at the same time, which would seem to be my mistake.

The crashes were random, normally when just flying, not doing anything specific, which i appreciate doesn't help you in the slightest.

The only thing i can tell you, is that as soon as i removed Ware Manager / Adv Nav and the EMP mod.. my crashes stopped.

Sorry i know this isn't much help to you or any scripters out there.

note: when i say crash, i mean a game freeze after waiting for 5 mins or so, i'd check task manager and it would say stopped responding.

sounds like an infinate loop

did u have the adv nav commands running on any ships at the time ?

its unlikly to be EMP

so the problem most likly lies in either the ware manager, or the adv nav command.

the adv nav command only does things when its active, so if its not running on any ships at the time, its very unlikly to be causing the problem.

if u can confirm this, t hen i will know the problem with be with the ware manager

which will narrow down where to look for the cause Wink

I didn't have the Adv Nav software installed on any ship.
So it could well be the ware manager...

But if you are not having any problems.. then it would seem to be a conflict with another script?

For your Reference a list of scripts that i had during the crashing are in my sig (add the EMP + Ware manager + adv nav scripts for this instance)

Very handy, however I noticed it ignores autojump feature. Is it intentional ?

as its for navigation, its for moving the ship rather than jumping.


i will add on option in to allow autojump at some point, possibilty linking it with the advanced jumpdrive

I have installed the 5 files listed for the Advanced Navigation. The Plugin Manager lists them as active. I can Hot Key the Advanced Nav Manager and the Community Plugin Config. However, there is no Advance Nav Submenu in my Command Console/Navigation Menu. Does ADV NAV software need to be added to a station and purchased by the individual ships?

if u have the ware manager installed, then the device should be added to some equipment docks.

you do need the upgrade on the ship to use the commands
