Note: Square brackets “[  ]” indicate a range of options. Italicized text provides a brief description for commands that may not be self-explanatory. This is not a complete list of available verbal commands, but contains the most common spoken commands. Other spoken variations have been added out of personal preference, but are not listed here.

System Startup Commands

  1. On Startup: “Respawn” or “Initialize System”
  2. Once in the ship: “Prepare the Ship”

When loading into a new ship (after re-spawning or starting a new game session) you should issue the “Initialize System” command. This will reset ship assumptions such as power status and IFCS safeties to their default positions, resulting in fewer corrections. If you issued the “respawn” command after your most recent death, the “initialize system” command was automatically triggered as part of the respawn script.

Once you are in your ship and able to access the HUD, issue the “prepare the ship” command to adjust your IFCS safeties to their desired states. Note: ESP is a persistent setting but Coupled, G Safe, and ComStab all reset to defaults each time a ship is loaded.
