Skyline

From the Star Citizen Wiki, the fidelity™ encyclopedia

Skyline is a mapping and navigation application created by The Ark and installed on every mobiGlas. It is designed to interface with ship computers to aid in automated navigation and wayfinding.

To access the starmap from your mobiGlas, select the "Skyline" button at the bottom of the screen (fourth button from the left).

Accessing the Skyline app

There are two ways you can access your starmap:

  1. Open up your mobiGlas by pressing F1, then select the Skyline button in your app list.
  2. Access the app instantly by pressing F2.

Quirks, bugs, and workarounds

Map objects do not show up

Double right click to zoom your view out all the way to the system view. If there still aren't any map objects showing up, close your mobiGlas and re-enter the starmap. (This step may need to be repeated multiple times. The map will eventually launch in working order)

Route plotter isn't plotting a route to my destination

This usually occurs when a large object, such as a planet, is obstructing your direct-line flightpath. Choose another destination which is not obstructed and navigate around the celestial body.
