Author's Description

Shows paths between planets that can be reached by gravitonic connections. Paths in red indicate planet connections than can be reached in one turn at warp 9 by a ship with gravitonic engines. Connections that can be reached using non-gravitonic engines are not shown - use the built-in "Connections" tool instead.

This script also adds an experimental HYPConnect tool that draws connections between planets that can be reached by hyperjump in one turn. The tool draws a connection between planets that can either be reached directly, or by jumping into a warp well position that will result in the ship being sucked to the planet (i.e., all warp well position except the four farthest from the planet).

Also included is a W9Connect tool, which is an improved version of the "Connections" tool that uses an algorithm similar to GravConnect.

If you don't want to show all these tools on your menu, then you can disable them on lines 28-30.

NOTE: In this version, none of these tools consider the fact that planetoids have no warp wells.

Usage: To show connections, click on "GravConnect," "HYPConnect" or "W9Connect" from the Map Tools menu. To hide connections, click on "GravConnect," "HYPConnect" or "W9Connect" again.
