coastwatch - Check from sectors for nearby ships
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.
