Operations Commands

These commands are used for various operations on a ship or station like remote operation of shuttlebays or airlocks. Operations officers are usually also responsible for logistical status, like fuel and cargo supplies.

Logistical Commands

reload <ship>:<amount>:<warhead ID> -- Reloads <ship with <amount> of <warhead ID>. <ship> must be docked orlanded at the reloading vessel to be reloaded.
refuel <ship>:<antimatter|deuterium|both>=<amount|fill> -- Refuel <ship> with specified type and amount.
vent <antimatter/deuterium/-/+/off>[=<amount>] -- Vent fuel. ('-' is all antimatter, '+' is all deuterium)

Status Commands

fuelstat -- Lists fuel levels.
fueltime -- Time remaining to empty tanks at current consumption rates.
stores -- Torpedo stocks.

Control Commands

seal -- Seals airlock inner door.
unseal -- Opens airlock inner door.
alopen -- Opens outer door.
alclose -- Closes outer door.
pressurize -- Pressurizes airlock to 1 atm.
depressurize -- Depressurizes the airlock slowly.

sbopen <shuttlebay> -- Opens <shuttlebay>.
sbclose <shuttlebay> -- Closes <shuttlebay>.
[un]clamp [<ship>] -- Clamps/unclamps indicated ship, preventing depature, or lists clamped ships.

Cargo Commands

Cargo Management

cargobay [<name>:[primary/independant]] -- View status/allocate.
manifest [<bay>] -- List cargo contents for all or single cargo bay(s).
transfer <commod>:<amount>:<src>:<dest> -- Move cargo between cargo bays.
loadcargo <ship>[[:<cargobay>]:<commod>:<amount>/all] -- Load cargo onto a docked/landed vessel.
unloadcargo <commod>:<amount>/all[:<bay>] -- Unload cargo while docked/landed.
jettison <commod>:<amount/all> -- Eject cargo.

Market Interaction

markets -- Closes outer door.
marketscan [<planet/station>:][<market>] -- View market details.
buy/sell [<market>:]<amount>=<commodity> -- Trade with market.

Communications Commands

This is a list and short description of all communications commands:

comminfo -- Gives a readout about the current communications status.
addfreq <freq num> <freq name> -- Adds a frequency to the database. <freq num> must be a number.
remfreq <freq num> -- Removes the first channel that uses <freq num>.
rnmfreq <freq name> <new name> -- Renames a frequency.
open <freq name> -- Opens the channel to allow recieving and sending transmissions.
close <freq name> -- Closes channel, not allowing recieving or transmitting on that channel.
encrypt <freq name> <encryption code> -- Encrypts that channel with <encryption code>.
transmit <freq name> <message> -- Broadcasts <message> over <freq name>.
hail <freq name> <contact> -- Sends a hail to contact over the specified channel.
mayday <freq name> -- Sends a distress signal with you vessel's position over the frequency indicated.
trace <on/off> -- Activates/Deactivates Subspace Tracing feature.

Communications Tips

Most things dealt with in the area of communications are fairly straight forward, but a few things do require explanation.

  1. The trace command will toggle the option to have the ship report the heading to the source of each transmission.
  2. If you see a bunch of jibberish instead of an actual message, the transmitting vessel's encryption is different than yours on that channel.
  3. To hail a ship, you must have sensor contact with them.
  4. Communications range is determined by the basic power of the communications array on the ship and the power allocated to communications in the engineering power allocation setup (engstat).
