ISXBJEVE Using Astro Bot

Using the UI - Navigation Page

If you want your bot to automatically move around in space, you will need to configure a path for it to take.  The Available Navigation Destinations will ONLY populate if you are in space and is a list of every celestial in your region.  Navigation Routes are saved globally and are not part of the character profiles.  This should make it easier to share locally across multiple characters on the same computer.

Figure 10.1 - Navigation Page (Click image to enlarge)

There are 2 parts to a navigation route:

1) Select the Available Navigation Destination you want to use.

2) Select an action to apply to the selected destination.  Your choices are:

Mining - When at your destination, your bot will scan for asteroids.  If none exist, you will move on to the next destination.

Hauling - What at your destination, your bot will scan for fleet members or jetcans on grid.  If none exist, you will move on to the next destination.

Travel - Simple travel to your destination.  If your destination is a warp gate, you will use the gate.  If your destination is a station, you will dock.

Once you have completed your route, you can create a save file of your list by using the Create checkbox at the top of the page.  If it is an existing list, it must be selected from the load route combobox and the save checkbox must be used.  The route list name in the combobox is saved with the character profile.

[ ] Loop Route - Saved with the character profile, this option will loop the loaded route when the route is completed.
