MA Navball

We are proud to present the Navball.
It's similar in function to the one you all know and love from KSP, space simulators, perhaps even your time actually being an astronaut.

If you don't have such familiarity, don't fret. There are countless tutorial videos online to help you get your bearings straight. In short, it is a compass view.

This Navball has 3 indicators:
-Prograde (and retrograde) velocity
-XYZ compass.

The line represents your ship, and the dot is the front nose of it. If that dot is pointing at X+, that means you are facing X+.

If the prograde icon is over the dot, it means you are facing the same direction as your velocity.

There is large grid and small grid version.
For large grid: Simply place in front of cockpit or flight seat. Or as decoration to fill your oversized ship.
For small grid: It is offset for fighter cockpit only. The standard cockpit does not have variant yet. Place on the front of the cockpit (see pictures).
It is shaped as half-block armor to match most common front end fighter styling. (see pics)

Cameras: Large and small grid cam with navball in front of view, great for drones.

AutoMcD: Concept, modeling, textures.
Whiplash141: Coding, textures.

Yes, after HeavyBridge is released and a turret I promised someone.. I will work on it. HB might drop this week!

Hey Auto :) Any plans to do the other small ship cockpit for this one?

Reminds me of the spherical floating compass used in sailing. Cool mod!
