Tracking Station Evolved adds alternate sorting and display modes for the vessel list in the Tracking Station, as well as a search function. A bar at the top of the vessel list controls all functions.

Several functions are available for all grouping modes:

  • The button in the top-right corner of each vessel button opens the vessel rename dialog
  • Vessels with maneuver nodes are positioned at the top of whichever list they are in
  • Several sorting options are available that will re-order all vessels
    • Vessel launch time
    • Vessel name
    • Vessel type
    • Celestial body
  • Each sort option can be toggled between ascending and descending order
  • A search box is available by clicking the search icon on the right side of the control bar
  • Toggle a vessel's orbit display using the orbit button on the right side of each vessel's button
  • Toggle all vessel orbits in a given group

Celestial Body Sorting:

  • Vessels are grouped by the celestial body they are orbiting
  • Moons are grouped together with their parent body
  • The total number of vessels for each body is displayed in the bottom-right corner of each celestial body button; moon vessel count is shown as well for bodies with moons
  • Clicking on the celestial body icon will change the camera target to that body
  • Clicking on the celestial body button will collapse or expand the list of vessels for that body
  • Bodies are sorted by: Home body (Kerbin), then the sun, then the other planets ordered by distance to the sun
    • Click and drag on the handle on the right side of each planet for drag-and-drop re-ordering

Vessel Type Sorting:

  • Vessels are grouped by vessel type
  • Click on the vessel type icon to collapse or expand the list of vessels for that type
    • Click and drag on the handle on the right side of each type for drag-and-drop re-ordering

The third sort mode is similar to the stock display:

  • Vessels are not grouped together
  • All search and sort functions work for this mode as well

The vessel list elements behave the same as the stock buttons:

  • Single-clicking will change the camera target to that vessel
  • Double-clicking will load that vessel
  • The text displayed is the same
  • Anything that causes the stock vessel list to update, for instance, a vessel being destroyed, an asteroid being tracked, etc... should cause the other list types to update
