As is well known, PAR _NAME_ gives the coordinates of the object you list. But what if the object hasn't been named? Or else, is there a command that gives the coordinates of the stardrifter's current location?

The stardrifter's location is shown in the main computer window, most probably in one of the submenus of the "onboard devices" main menu.

Damn, I feel so ashamed that I haven't been running Noctis for a long time to the point I even forgot the labels of the menus...

An alternate method could be temporarily naming the star and running the PAR module to have the exact coordinates of the star in question.

Is that a... signature? I've heard about them from other forums out in the vast internets where I dare not venture. We don't tend to do that kind of thing here. I do wonder why it's a thing that happens...

Of course, if one is using NIV+, one could always use the TYPES module...

You have always been more on the data evaluation and system improvements side.

I have been up to some explorations, and though (as usual) the "projects" outweigh my output abilities, maybe soon I will provide a morsel...but no outbox yet, my bad.

Actually, all custom modules work with any version of Noctis.
Have a look Silvercoon, if there's something of your liking: http://www.neuzd.org/noctis/var/modules/

That could be inspiring, please, I think I need that : P

The method using the window display is to select Galactic Cartography, Set Target To Parsis

or shortcut r89


The current local Parsis coordinates will be displayed on the screen.


Or, as I remembered how I used to do it after I left here yesterday (that is, the lazy way):


Simply take a snapshot from inside/outside the stardrifter. Your coordinates are on the picture.
