I've been using Roguey's map to track things down in X Rebirth, but I have no idea how to obtain the coordinates of the current location of the Albion Skunk. I've done quite a bit of Googling on the matter, but the game is either too new, or the answer is extremely obvious and I just missed it like a fool. Thanks very much for all answers provided.


I'm not sure exactly if this is what you need, but we have a mod that exports the current position in the log file: https://github.com/timothyparez/xrebirth-playerposition

We're going to use this to create a 'second screen' experience where your tablet can represent a map. The source code may help you to get an idea how to get the current position.

  • Was there any success with 'second screen' experience? – Ivan Solntsev Jul 16 '15 at 15:29
  • Hi, sadly no. The game turned out to be such a mess that it was no longer fun playing it. My friends and I have long since moved on to Elite Dangerous. – TimothyP Jul 17 '15 at 1:37
  • Quote from "Patola", who posted it as an answer: "The mod does not work; it does not output the position. Also, the variable it uses - player.primaryship.position - only output the zone coordinates (just as in the screenshot info), which is useless for roguey's site, which uses sector coordinates." – Fabian Röling Nov 14 '17 at 12:10
  • Hi, I haven't looked at that in years sorry. I gave op on rebirth and moved to Elite Dangerous. I tried rebirth again a few months ago but I just can't get myself invested anymore. – TimothyP Nov 14 '17 at 14:55
  • I can tell you though @Patola that back in the day the code did in fact work, but so much has changed since then. It's probably no longer compatible. – TimothyP Nov 14 '17 at 15:02

When you press PrntScr game makes screenshot. In screenshot folder for each image there are text files with same name, that contain position of player ship like this:

<teleport zone="tzonecluster_d_sector18_zone50_macro">
<position x="-2890.886" y="1270.002" z="-865.186"/>
<rotation yaw="-8.44914" pitch="2.40675" roll="-175.97554"/>

I know this is very old, but I've gotten the position in km as follows:

%,.0skm %,.0skm %,.0skm'.[player.zone.position.x/1000,player.zone.position.y/1000,player.zone.position.z/1000]
