Background:

Due to rounding in VGA Planets and Planets.nu, there are 48 waypoints on the map you can set your ship to that will cause your ship to end up at a point where it cannot be intercepted in the next turn by a ship at the same point in the current turn. Links are at the bottom of this page if you want the mathy details.

This tool helps you avoid being intercepted by a non-gravitonic powered ship currently at the same point as you. These same waypoints can also be used to break a tow lock by a non-gravitonic ship, although there are simpler ways to break a non-gravitonic tow lock not discussed here.

All ships are assumed to have Transwarp engines, non-gravitonic, and enough fuel to reach the destination.

Usage:

  1. Enter your position into the form above.
  2. The tool will offer 48 possible waypoints you can use to avoid intercept.
