SYNTAXEdit

coastwatch [<SECTS>]

The coastwatch command allows coastal sectors to report sightings of ships.

Visibility range is equal to four times the sector efficiency expressed as a decimal times the technology factor; e.g. a 100% efficient harbor with a 50% technology factor can see 2 sectors away. An exception is radar installations, which have a maximum range equal to fourteen times the sector efficiency, (i.e. 3.5 times as far).

A typical usage might be:

[##:##] Command : coast #3 ?type=)
 3,-11 efficiency 100%, range 5.6
Pandora (#5) oil derrick #74 @3, -9
-1,4   efficiency 100%, range 5.6
-3,13  efficiency 100%, range 5.6
Galexis (#2) destroyer #35 @-3, 11

Note that subs will NOT show up on coastwatch, unless they are in a sector you own.
