Plot Jump Route
This plugin will find the route with the fewest number of jumps between two systems based on the given maximum jump distance and the systems marked as valid jump points. This will only run on the visible systems making it easier to filter out political affiliations and subsystems that you may wish to avoid.
Marking Valid Jump Points
The first step to using this plugin is to mark systems as being jump points. There are several ways to do this, you can mark either all, selected, or visible systems when you choose the "Mark Jump Points" option in the plugin. There is also the option to unmark systems in the same menu in the same manner. This will allow you to edit the jump point options for many systems at a time. For example: you may mark all systems as jump points in the plugin, then use search to find and select all black holes, and then choose to unmark all selected bodies in the plugin. This will make sure that black holes are not considered when searching for a route but all other systems are. You may also mark systems individually by right clicking on a system and selecting the "Toggle Jump Point" option.
Plotting a Jump Route
Once you have the jump points set it is time to plot a route. The easiest way to do this is by selecting 2 systems. The first system will be the origin and the second system will be the destination. This way when you choose the "Plot Jump Route" option in the plugin the UABI of the origin and destination systems will already be filled in. If you have a large map and find it difficult navigating and selecting the origin and destination at the same time you can enter the UABI 's of the systems by copying them from the systems properties window and pasting them into notepad and then copying them from notepad and pasting them there into the plugin. You can then choose the route Type, Name, Colour, Style, and Width like any other route. The last option is "Max Jump" this is the maximum distance that can be travelled in a single jump. The plugin will then search for the route that has the fewest number of jumps.
