Starfinder uses 60 and 120 arcs for space combat.

So little was done by this aspect of the module I think they could at least put the arcs with proper angles.

Please take a look at this.

The blue lines are how Starfinder space battle arc should be.

This is from the rule book.

HI ,
when I was playing SF I made a png file of the arc .. I just placed it over the ship Icon and set it in same direction as ship to figure out the weapon arcs.. here is an example it has a black background for clarity seemed to work good

For those with a little bit of code-monkey in them - you could always use the Custom Pointers Toolkit (here (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/index.php/Custom_Pointers_Coding_Toolkit)) to make some up. :)

I tried, but is not a good way.

This is outdated. First thing I tried.

Shouldn't be - I used it only a couple of weeks ago

File locations did not match.

But, if you succeeded could you split your code with me?

Thank you.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Attached a png if anyone else needs it (black in order to make it as unobtrusive as possible).

I actually combined it with the starship token itself (but can't share these images due to copyright reasons).

I made some star-ship arc tokens to use under my ship tokens. It works great on the middle layer if you use the map layer extension.

The blue token is an example.

There are seven colors in the .zip file. Blue, green, orange, red, violet, white, and yellow.

Facing is enabled to assist with this as well. Just have to turn it on in the options within FG.
