Mostly Clueless

  1. I was reminded on Reddit Last week that some people don’t know about the glories of the “Space Compass” It’s the little ball to the left of your Heat Percent and can show you what you are targeting, be it a ship, planet, system, or even a landing pad!. A hollow circle means that the object is behind you, if it is solid, then it’s in front of you. It’s fairly intuitive, but basically if you want to be looking directly at the thing, get the solid ball into your crosshairs! (who’d have thunk it!)
