    Not consult I just don't know which one is the top and which one is the bottom one

    By flying along one latitude OR longitude so that only one coordinate changes. Once matched go the other "axis".


    All the cogs and wheels stay still if it is the People's will.

    You get a co-ordinate system FOR FREE.

    Universal Meridian Lines.

    On earth the zero Meridian goes through Greenwich.
    Do you know where it is on Mars? Venus? Enceladus?

    You get a Zero Meridian FOR FREE.
    You get a functional longitude without needing to come to a consensus on where Zero is.

    If you can't find your way around - go back to grade 8.


    Frankly I think Frontier should implement Orbital Mechanics and even that go the full Delta V.
    But only for people who whinge about having to work out a compass heading from Lat and Long.

    Yep. Do one coordinate, then go to the other. It's not too bad that way.

    Wish there was an in game tool to manually select a coordinate as a target, then fly there like going to a base.
