The Minimap is the main method of determining the enemy fleet size, location and faction power at a glance. There are different symbols for each type of ship, allowing you to quickly determine what an enemy has and where they are. It is also used so you know where your own ship is on the map. When you start to move outside the Minimap, your warp will stop, however, there is no border to the galaxy. The Minimap can be enlarged.
- Always keep an eye on the Minimap when mining or trading. If an enemy ship or an Alien is heading towards you, the best idea is to run to a safe location.
- The Minimap can give you an idea of your enemy's strength. Always watch the Minimap to see what ships faction members spawn to ascertain their fleet power.
