EDMC plugin to help explorers find high-value planets

This EDMC plugin displays the "habitable-zone" (i.e. the range of distances in which you might find an Earth-Like World) when you scan the primary star in a system with a Detailed Surface Scanner.

Optionally, you can choose to display the ranges in which you might find other high-value planets - Metal-Rich, Water and/or Ammonia Worlds.

Optionally, you can choose to display the high-value planets known to Elite Dangerous Star Map.



  • On EDMC's Plugins settings tab press the “Open” button. This reveals the plugins folder where EDMC looks for plugins.
  • Download the latest release.
  • Open the .zip archive that you downloaded and move the HabZone folder contained inside into the plugins folder.

You will need to re-start EDMC for it to notice the new plugin.
