In Endless Sky, you can create a jump-path from one system to another. What do the colors of the jump path represent (particularly yellow), how are they calculated, and are there colors other than green, yellow and red?
It seems that the colors indicate the range of your fleet (not just your flagship) based on the current fuel supply of each ship.
I've seen this vary a lot: paths with more than one yellow link, paths that are only yellow (one ship, 500 fuel), paths with no yellow links, etc.
To the best of my knowledge:
- Green indicates the maximum number of jumps you can take along that route without any ship refueling.
- Red indicates jump paths that are beyond the yellow range?
Here's a screenshot with a fleet of 8 escorts (min fuel 400, max fuel 600)
