This tutorial will show you how to place Supermarks on the Map and add text entries directly to the Ship’s Journal (SJ)

This Journal need not be treated as a Master SJ as you can make as many Journals as you wish.
When the game next loads you will see the name of the Journal last used, (Picture 24).

Picture 1 > When the game loads to the Main Menu open the SJl.
You now need to give the SJ a name I have used “TheBerbMeister’s Journal”

Picture 2 > The selected name now appears underneath theSJ.l
Load Game.

Picture 3 > Shows the SJ Icon which is used to Open and Close it.

Picture 4 > When the SJl opens you will see 8 Icons at the bottom of the Journal page.

1. Select it,
2. Click on it to open.
