The Maneuver Program is designed to facilitate interplanetary or intra-star system travel (NAFAL or STL), and not jump travel. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Routine programs are used to operate systems other than weaponry, and without regard to violent interaction.

  • Maneuver is required to allow the use of maneuver drive.
  • In combat it is often replaced by the maneuver/evade program.
  • It can calculate shorter NAFAL trips within a system including burn durations, projected fuel usage, and other factors. It can make similar calculations for more advanced non-reaction maneauver drives. [2]

Selected Computer Programs[edit]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Software within Charted Space is intentionally built to work under a number of different operating systems, different technology levels of computers, and to be extensively toughened for hard use under vacuum if necessary. [4]

The Software List: The computer software list, available at nearly any software vendor or port, indicates the various programs that are available. It shows space required by a specific program in CPU or storage, its price in MCr, and its title. Also shown is a brief overview of its effects. [5]

Software Authorship: Various requirements exist for individual characters producing existng or new programs. Such a course can save money, but may have some pitfalls. Program generation is explained elsewhere. [6]
