DisplayShipPos 1.0

Nov 27, 2011 Pizzasgood link
We used to have a very useful command in the game: /DisplayShipPos. Unfortunately, the devs removed it. I found this unacceptable, and therefor toiled for dozens of minutes to recreate this lost functionality. Behold!

Note that this makes use of the existing DisplayShipPos assets that are still in the game. When the devs originally nerfed it, rather than actually remove the assets, they just modified the command to not utilize them.

edit: Whistler, if you see this, remove the 1.0 from the thread title. I forgot that we can't edit our own titles when we update a thread in this forum.

Fixed a small bug - when you closed it with the 'x' button rather than by running it in the console, it would not realize it had been closed and would take two attempts to open before it would come up again. That has been corrected with version 1.1.

just like the old version, except didnt it use to crash the game? dont think you could just click x to stop it

The old one didn't crash the game. You did sometimes need to open the console to get rid of it though. I've got a VM set up with an old copy of VO from when it still worked. I'll monkey about with that and see if I can make it more authentic.
