About this mod

Adds several map modes, search functionality, and the ability to plan custom routes to the navigation screen.

Permissions and credits
BattleTech mod that adds search functionality to the navigation screen, as well as several map modes.

Requirements

Requires ModTek. Installation instructions for ModTek.

Hotkeys

While in navigation screen:

  • F1: Toggle unvisited systems map mode
  • F2: Toggle system difficulty map mode
  • CTRL-F: System search
  • ESC: Exit map mode or search
  • Shift-Click: On system: route through this system

Custom Routes

Shift clicking a system will keep the previous route and path from the end of the previous route to the new destination. Use this for routing through systems that you want to check out (contracts, shops), but don't neccessarily want to stop at.

Searching

The search will look for:

  • System name (e.g. detroit)
  • System tags (e.g. manufactoring)
  • Factions offering contracts there (e.g. marik)
  • Excludes "the" in front (e.g. free instead of the free)

Additionally you can:

  • Invert with '-' in front of query (e.g. -pirates)
  • Chain together multiple queries (e.g. marik -liao)

Limitations/known bugs

  • Currently the search doesn't handle multi-word searches at all, treating each word as its own section.

Future Plans

  • Be able to make a custom route maybe
  • Additional map modes if needed
  • Options for configuring buttons
  • Turn off fake-star-background or yellow overlay by default
  • Default map mode
