About this mod

Provides an update to the Helm screen to replace the standard directional arrows with more user friendly graphics. This is for the stock Ceres, Proxima and Enceladus class vessels with the correct topographical ship outline for each vessel.

Permissions and credits
Changelogs
This mod provides updated HSI graphics for the helm screens of the stock Ceres, Proxima and Enceladus class ships.

The Blue heading arrow is now a topographical outline of the vessel depending on which one you are currently commanding. This should more clearly show the direction that the ships hull is currently facing. The original colour of the arrow has been respected in a floating tip which helps when lining one with the current direction of movement.

The Red Move Angle arrow is now a dashed green line with a red arrow tip on the end. Whereas before this indicator was short, this has now been made longer to extend past the ship outline from the heading indicator.

The combination of these two changes makes it much easier in my opinion to see at a glance where the ship is point and actually moving, without trying to remember which colour arrow was for what.
