The option of using the SHORT_RANGE_CHART special background on mission screens is a bit hit-and-miss. It appears that currently Oolite takes whatever the current zoom and
position settings from the F6 screen, and reproduces them for the SHORT_RANGE_CHART. This can mean the SHORT_RANGE_CHART ends up looking like the LONG_RANGE_CHART, if you left the F6 screen zoomed all the way out, or it could mean that the SHORT_RANGE_CHART is focused on the wrong part of the chart, if you zoomed in on a planet other than the one you're currently at.
I guess this is both a feature request and a bug notice. It's a bug notice because there's little point in using the SHORT_RANGE_CHART in it's current state, as there's no guarantee it will display what you want it to display. But it's a feature request, expanding on the suggestion here
, to give programmers two new parameters:
(to control the SRC zoom level), and
(to select what planet the SRC should be centred on).
