Distance measurement to HUD marker

Cris Streetzel 3 years ago updated 3 years ago 4

Knowing the distance to the spot you're looking it is very useful when deciding if you have the O2 to travel there. Add a HUD indicator for the distance to whatever terrain is under the HUD marker.

I feel like a permanently present distance indicator might be a bit distracting, but I could experiment with a keyboard shortcut to ping a new objective marker at the point you are looking which would then display the distance above on the compass.

Yes, that would be useful.


An alternative might be to display distances to the markers in the scanner. If you want to keep it 'real', display the distances as approximations... just use 1 to 1.3 significant digits.

Another alternative: range-finding binoculars
