Three mods which point the ship due N, S, E or W to help with long-range shots at enemy stations. Trying to align the more frisky ships can be a bit challenging.

Rotating Ship Pointing is the most advanced and is recommended. The others are there for new modders to look at for code examples.

A couple of more advanced ship pointing mods that don't use a dockscreen are in the pipeline but I don't know when (or if) I'll get them done.

Special thanks to marsrocks. The rotation code used is from the TargetLock mod. I'd still be struggling with it.
Also thanks to AP, TransGeek, Betelgeuse, JBW, PM, Arkheias, gunship256 plus a heap of others whose code or posts helped.
And George for a great game.
