Workspaces: K%

Name: K% [View in context] Type: Workspace Address: &0900 to &0D40 Category: Workspaces Summary: Ship data blocks and ship line heaps Deep dive: Ship data blocks
Contains ship data for all the ships, planets, suns and space stations in our local bubble of universe, along with their corresponding ship line heaps. The blocks are pointed to by the lookup table at location UNIV. The first 468 bytes of the K% workspace hold ship data on up to 13 ships, with 36 (NI%) bytes per ship, and the ship line heap grows downwards from WP at the end of the K% workspace. See the deep dive on "Ship data blocks" for details on ship data blocks, and the deep dive on "The local bubble of universe" for details of how Elite stores the local universe in K%, FRIN and UNIV.
