Re: [nbos] [AS] Astro Label distance

I wanted to do something similar a while back but couldn't crack it. In
the end, I selected my target system and a whole bunch of others (using
Shift+Click to multi-select). Then I set up the parameters for the
proximity routes and clicked <OK>.

That gave me what I wanted but it depended on my having correctly chosen
all the surrounding stars within the distance parameter. As it happens,
I had found them all but it would have been nice to ask the programme to
select "all stars within x lightyears of the selected system". It
strikes me that a script could be written to achieve this - but I'm no
script writer. Maybe somebody's already done it?

I also want to be able to search for all stars of a particular spectral
type but have drawn a blank on that also. Ed did suggest it might be
incorporated into the next version of AS.

Cheers,

Mike

Thank you for the reply.

Might I suggest the "find a route" feature for a later version.

Alternatively, is there a way to use the proximity route function to
create
routes from the target system to all the systems within X distance?

If I can do that then I can go star by star in the general direction I
would
like to travel.

Thanks in advance,
Bob

Use 'actions -> mass edit -> label display distance' from the menu. To
select all the systems in your map use the search window. Check 'root
bodies only', and then do an empty search. Press the 'select all found'

button to select them all.

No, there's nothing built in to do that
