Yeah, thats the idea, you "feel" yourself from stationary object to stationary object, like a blind person hanging to a known fixpoint.Flatfingers wrote: Would it be OK to be able to map such places manually? That is, you have to actually fly within a certain (relatively close) distance from a stationary object to cause it to be added to your internal map -- you can't just "see" everything from a great distance with your ship's scanner -- but it is possible to build a map of a star system in this way.
As long as something stationary with known coordinates is in sensor range you know where you are.
In a big asteroid field you may put drones every so far on the rocks to have fixpoints, in a nebula you drop buoys.
You need to bring some kind of breadcrumbs with you, or make something stationary your breadcrumb.
