Usage[edit | edit source]
Using the Navigation Terminal will show its GUI, it displays an outline of the submarine and a reticle to steer the submarine.
The sonar can either be passive or active:
While active the submarine will send a sonar ping in a 360 degree arc, anything it bounces off will be displayed on the GUI. Another option while active is Directional Ping, if enabled the submarine will send sonar pings in 30 degree arcs in the selected direction instead. It should be noted that active sonar will very easily acquire the attention of any roaming sea creatures nearby.
While passive instead of sending out sonar pings, the Navigation Terminal will scan for sound signatures, they can be generated by the submarine itself (nuclear reactor, engines) or underwater Creatures. Similarly to active sonar, these sound signatures will bounce off of their surroundings and are displayed on the GUI, the range of passive sonar is dependent on how loud the submarine is. Passive sonar is much less likely to alert any nearby creatures, though if the submarine is particularly loud or in close proximity its possible to be still be attacked.
Wiring[edit | edit source]
Engine[edit | edit source]
For the engine to respond to the navigation reticle, the
velocity_x_out output of the navigation terminal must be wired to the
set_force input of the engine.
Ballast Pumps[edit | edit source]
For the ballast pumps to respond to the navigation reticle, the
velocity_y_out output of the navigation terminal must be wired to the
set_targetlevel inputs of any ballast pumps.
Docking Hatch[edit | edit source]
For the docking hatch to respond to the docking button that appears below the navigation terminal when near dock, the
toggle_docking output of the navigation terminal must be wired to the
toggle_state input of the docking hatch.
There is also the transducer_in input, which will allow the navigation terminal's sonar options to control a Sonar Transducer. This is primarily used for shuttles and drones.
