I’m playing a game I started with “advanced start options” and set easy combat. I don’t know if that’s the cause or this is on purpose or what.
In the Navigation computer, I see information about “cannot detect player” and “mode: travel” which seems like it would be useful to the developers, but seems out of game information.
Thanks to a tip about a DOS prompt in engineering about rotating the ship, I’ve also found a few commands that definitely seem like they’re debug related: “DAMAGE” and “GIVEMONEY.” The later has been useful to compensate for contracts not paying out, but does seem like a cheat.
I didn’t think I did anything to activate a cheat mode, but maybe I did something when I started the game?
